" Christmas Gift Voucher Envelope "

Hi everyone and welcome to my 
Christmas in July post.
I normally don't go in for the whole Chrissy in July but I have recently joined Nini's Design Team and am lucky enough to have these gorgeous dies.

If you haven't been on the site yet here is the link;

Anita had the cheapest dies online plus she also carries some stamps and embellies and bits and pieces.
Do yourself a favour and take a look.

The combination of these dies cut out the envelope and the infill on the front. There are 4 in the range,
I just loved this one.
What a fantastic idea to use to pop those Gift vouchers or gift cards in. 
I chose Christmas for this one but you could use them for any type of celebration or just for a thank you.
You don't have to use the infill on the front, you can just use patterned cardstock and have a stunning envelope.
Endless ideas.

Love the back on them too. Nothing has been left out.

Thanks for stopping by

" 30th Birthday Card "

I always seem to forget to share my cards and
 my other crafty ideas. 

So today I am sharing a pretty little card I made some time ago

The heart is the negative heart from a 2Crafty set of heart frames.
Love tulips and don't use them nearly enough.

Thanks for stopping by
till next time

keep smiling

"My first OTP "

Hi everyone, 
I was just going back through some of my creations and I found this little beauty that I made awhile ago.

We all have got those Prima boxes with resin clocks or some other yummy embellishment in them.

I had this one and decided to have a go at an " Off The Page " (OTP) creation.

Having never done an OTP, this was so much fun. I just don't do them often enough.
This little beauty didn't last long on my sideboard.
My daughter saw it on a visit and was swiftly put in her bag to go home to
her home.

Thanks for stopping by
till next time
keep on scrapping

" Cute as can be "

Hi again,
today I am sharing my layout for 
colour challenge for this month, July
I don't often create with the  colour blue but I really loved this  and I have been wanting to scrap this very cute photo of my gorgeous granddaughter " Eliza " for the longest time.

I used the negative of the 2Crafty heart chipboard frame and adhered
the beautiful lace and pearl trim to it. Against the squiggly heart frame it looks awesome.
 I never throw the negative parts
of the chipboard pieces out. I have a box that they all go in, you 
just never know when you might need a piece or use one for 
a stencil.

This is such a pretty colour for this month challenge at White With 1

Showing the layers and that beautiful lace/pearl trim around the heart.

I just love Prills. They are the little beads that I adhered to the 
end of these chippy flower pieces. I think they have to be my favorite
embellishment at the moment, I love that they are all different sizes.

Lots of die cut pieces in the layers teamed with a little black stamping.

A few flowers, gauze and the title across them all.

Those Prills again and to finish it off I added some
dollops of liquid pearls around the page.

If you would like any information about any of the items or products
that I have used please drop me a message and I will do my
very best to help you.

Thanks for stopping by 
till next time
keep on scrapping.
