Hint of Christmas with Handi Scandi

Hello everyone, I'm here to share with you some cards I made using the cheerful Handi Scandi range.  

The patterns in this range are brilliant and you are spoilt for choice from the patterns printed on white or kraft backgrounds. 
I made this card using the tear drop paper which I punched a small hole either side so I could tie three strands of twine around.  Next I punched three circles from the Handi Scandi Meadows paper and added them to the twine and embellished them silver gems.

Supplies : 
Twinery Twine - Marigold, Maraschino, Ocean Stripe

The card below mixes the kraft side of the paper with the more geometric side.  In the blue dotty paper I die cut some circles so I could use them as a window to show the lines of twine which I had glued to a strip of paper.

Supplies : 
Twinery Twine - Gold Shimmer

And of course with Christmas around the corner there is a fab sheet with a glittered stag on it so I decided to change him in to Rudolph and made a little Christmas cheer to send!

Have a great day

Stargazer Lily Cards

Today I am here to share my creations using the Bella! My Romance collection.  Even though they are wedding themed they can be used for any occasion.  I teamed this with the Spellbinders Build a Stargazer Lily die to create these everyday cards

This birthday card was made using some of the 'left overs' from other projects and I attached them to one of the Fundamentals Imprint cards.  I die cut a flourish out of the Fundamentals vellum to give it a delicate touch.

For the next card I decided to use the Fundamentals decoupage to create an aperture card.  I put the frame on the front of the card and drew around the inside.  I then cut along the lines before adding the frame.  I built up the rest of the decoupage and put it in the inside of the card before embellishing the rest of the card.

And finally I used a stamp and some embossing powders from the WOW to create the background before building up the rest of the card.

All Loved Up With Ruby Rock-It

Good morning and how are you?  Today I am here to share with you a little project I made for a stunning bride and her groom. 

One of the many reasons I scrap is so that people can remember their special moments.
I really wanted to make this all about them and had an idea to add in their wedding invite. My wedding invite is packed away in a box and I thought it this would be a great idea, so here are the basic items I started with .....

I then added in the gorgeous Bella! At Last collection as the greens matched perfectly!!
To decorate the bottom of the circles I add a lily which I made using the Spellbinders Create a Stargazer Lily die. I could not believe how quick it was to make.

I cut off the top section of the invitation and added to the layout as an embellishment.  The little doves are just beautiful and sit nicely at the end of the flowers.

Here is the finished layout out of the frame.

New *Handi Scandi* from Ruby Rock-It

Well there is nothing to be blue about this Monday when you take a look at one of the colourful new range Handi Scandi from Ruby Rock-It

The bright and cheerful designs just pop from the kraft background and if you want something a little more subtle the backing papers are just as awesome!  I love the kraft paper with the bold designs so I made a layout using them

Selfies are everywhere and this has to be one of my favourites at the moment my DD and her BFF.  I am never afraid to add those not so perfectly exposed photos to pages because 'heck' they are what creating memories are all about!

Oh and the embellishments ..... just brill!  
With the addition of epoxy tears/rain drops and twine it has everything you need for completing your projects (well minus the glue!!)  On the photo above I have used the camera, which is glittered, from the 3D sticker pack and below are snippets of the double sided embellishments from the tag and die-cut pack.

This range is going to be brilliant for scrapping those summer holiday memories.

I hope I have taken away those Monday blues for you
Have a great day

Wedding Crackers

The summer season brings lots of weddings and today I thought I would share a little idea that could be used as favours for the guests.  I have this amazing die from Xcut which is a cracker and along with the Bella 'My Romance' Wedding range it is just perfect for creating these non Christmas crackers.  

Once I made the crackers up and filled them with goodies.  I tied them with some ribbon and then made some toppers to go on each of them. 

I used the spellbinders scallop and circle dies for the base of the toppers and then added some of the Bella! wedding embellishments to finish them, the little 'Bride and Groom' toppers are in the die-cut pack.   
I pierced some holes around the edge.

Products Used

The Bella! My Romance collection is a soft pink and blue palette but of course these would look amazing in the other Bella! Wedding ranges which can be seen on the Ruby Rock-It website.

A Little Bag Charm

When I opened my box of goodies from Epiphany Crafts, I was rather excited about one of the products sent to me.  I used the beautiful Ruby Rock-It Heritage collection along with the Epiphany Crafts Metal Charms to create this wee bag charm.

The Heritage collection comes with fantastic embellishments which included 3D butterflies but for this I was drawn to using the wood vaneer.

I painted the bird cage using some metallic paint as I wanted it to look like metal.  Once it had dried I added some bling and lace .

Next I inked one of the flowers from Ruby Rock-It's Oriental wood vaneer with some Tim Holtz distress inks.

These little charms from Epiphany crafts are brilliant for framing mini photos and matching embellishments.  The photo I used was tiny but I was able to get the two faces in and sealed with the circular bubbles.  

The little beads I threaded on the wire, which hold the photo charms, are strips of the Heritage paper rolled up and secured with glue.

To finish the bag charm I glued an extra piece of paper at the back of the bird cage after securing the charms in place. Then I added a key chain and tied some ribbon around the top.
