Downton Abbey is in the House!


That's right! It's here! The Downton Abbey Papercrafting collection is now available at Crafter's Companion US! Everything about this collection says elegance. I love treating the gold as my neutral, and just adding a small pop of purple for the color.  Also, notice the Ornate Mirror Frame - I die cut a purple and a patterned piece, and offset them slightly.  This is a great way to create a shadow effect.

New Release - Crafter's Companion - Butterfly Lullaby


It's release day at Crafter's Companion US! Yay! Today we are adding Sara Davies' Signature Collection - Butterfly Lullaby.  It's perfect for spring! Now this collection launched a couple of months ago, and it was so wildly popular that we have just now gotten part of the collection in stock!

I used the embossing folder to emboss the scalloped circle, but then fussy cut it down to just the circle, rather than using the whole design.  The flowers were fussy cut and glittered, then shaped a little bit before I adhered them with foam tape.

For My Special Friend


Here's a fun tag that you can easily add to your next hostess gift! I used the new AquaBlend pencils from Spectrum Noir. They really make shading very easy. The image is from Sheena's A Little Bit Scenic - Provence.   It was layered with die cuts from Edge'ables Only Words - For My Special Friend  and Die'sire Decorative Dies - Chantilly Lace Stamping Frame.
Remember, adding a touch of metallics to any project makes it a little more glamorous - perfect for special occasions.

Fancy Fold Card


I just thought that I would share a fancy gatefold card that I created.  I love lots of  texture and details, so I think this card fits the bill.

Here you can see what the card looks like closed and laced shut.

Thanks for stopping by!
