Graphic 45 Couture Album

I found this project as an online class from Clare Charvill at the Graphic 45 blog site.  This one just had my name written all over it.  I am not going to post pics of all the pages as you can view at Clare's site.  This took me about two and half months to make but I adore how it came out.

There are dozens of little pockets and fold outs and places for tags. 


 
I will be making some more of Clare's online class projects.  She does a superb job of her tutorials!

Paper Train

I have made this gorgeous 3d Santa Express Train for a Christmas gift.  Yes for Christmas 2014.  I finished it in January of 2014!  It is a Silhouette cut file from SVG Cuts.  I am quite happy with the outcome of this one.  Only thing is that if you use liquid glue you have to let the pieces dry under something heavy or they will warp slightly.  The next project I will be using more of the Sookwang tape and only gluing the tiniest pieces. 

SVG Cuts has some really incredible files and they cut out beautifully. 



 
Once again, I would love to hear what you think of this one!

Miniature Garden

This is definitely the blog that died!  I haven't been idle though.  The best part is that I have a new post for you.  Actually, I have three posts!  The first one is a miniature garden and I just love how it came out.  One of the local greenhouses had a flyer come out in December and I registered for the mini garden class five months ago.  I have been surfing blogs and miniature garden ideas since then.  Today was class day! 

 
The whole container is about 12 inches across and I have put six mini plants in.  There is a trellis at the back and the bird house, a tiny wheelbarrow and the tiny little pot of lillies. There is also a bird bath at the back under the bird house.  Can you find it?

I hope a little fairy or sprite will find the chair to settle in for a cup of tea or a good read! 

I would love to hear what you think of my first attempt at miniature gardens.  I think I'll make another one!  A couple more photos for you.

Happy Christmas Words

One more for awhile!  A clean and simple card but also inspired by Heartfelt Creations!  If you would like any details on this one, send an email to me!


White Christmas Card

Okay it is snowing outside and I have another Christmas card for you.  I can't think of what else I should be doing in this miserable, snowy weather.  Another card inspired by Heartfelt Creations!

I don't think I have done an all white card before and it is kind of challenging.  I did use some gold embossing powder and gold ribbon.  I like how it all came together! 

As always, I love reading any comments or suggestions!



Photos look really blue but I can't retake the photos as this card is already sold.  It really was all white with just the gold embossing powder!!  LOL!

Angel Wings

I made these Christmas cards awhile ago and realized that I never posted them.  Here is one that was inspired by Heartfelt Creations.  Heartfelt Creations has some amazing products and a fabulous blog of ideas so check them out.

Here is my version!




If you would like any info on this just send me an email and I will do my best!  I would love to read your comments on what you think of this one!

Over the Top

Hi!  I'm back with a card for you to see.  A co-worker asked me to make a birthday card that was "over the top".  It is interesting how life seems to happen!   About the time that she asked me I discovered a blog called http://jenniferds.blogspot.com.au/ and this fabulous crafter inspired me to try "over the top"!

I contacted Jennifer about using the Stampendous Frantage and she was very helpful.  I also asked if she minded me posting this as it is so similar to her "style" and she has told me to go ahead. 

I would love to hear what you think of this.  Warning!!  Photo heavy!!  Thank you so much for your help Jennifer!  I love how this came out and I hope that my co-worker and the recipient like it!
