by the seaside

Hello and a Happy Monday to you! Today we have a new challenge from Cupcake Craft Challenges where we have a get wet challenge, so would like to see any water themed project.

I've created a sunny(!) seaside picture, well we can at least hope!

Sorry, cannot for the life of me reproduce the cropped version on here. Computer failure ... or me ...

Papers: Basic grey ~ June Bug

Image: Magnolia ~ Tilda in Key Largo.

Tilda is on Spellbinders ~ Decorative Labels Twenty-Two

Used a Magnolia ~ Simple Tag for the little tag sticking out.

The sun is shining with this X-Cut Doily. Added a >La La Land Banner die cut.

Some clouds  using Magnolia dies.

And my waves were created with a Memory Box die.

Thank you for looking.

pink dragon

Yay! It's Friday. They can't come around soon enough for me at the moment. And so for another challenge at Crafts 4 Eternity, where we have a challenge of at least three different papers.

My project was easy and I completed it in an evening, although it went on into the wee small hours! I cased a paper bag I had decorated previously HERE just changing the papers and dies and also cased the colouring I'd done of the same image HERE.

Papers: Magnolia ~ Princes & Princesses

Dies: Spellbinders ~ Radiant Rectangles and A2 Curved Borders One.

Image: Magnolia ~ Teddy Bear Love.

Magnolia ~ Wrapped Starlight die.

Back of the bag has a pocket.

Tags in pockets.

To put inside, I made a book! Of course!

Hello! I'm a wee bit late with my post today for Cupcake Craft Challenges, where we have a theme this week of cute and cuddly.

Almost everything I used is from the My Mind's Eye ~ Lost & Found: Blush collection.

The front has a little pull out card.

Thank you for looking.

Puff! The Magic Dragon

Who remembers Puff! The Magic Dragon? ... he lived by the sea! Anyway, that is what these papers remind me of. Maybe he still exists frolicking in the autumn mists? I don't know.

This week at Crafts 4 Eternity our theme is feature wings. I have the wings on my fairy and Puff! has them too!! After all, all dragons need to fly!

I've decorated a little kraft bag this week and so here is the front of it.

Papers: Magnolia.

Image: Magnolia ~ Summer Flower Tilda coloured with copics and stickles.

Die cuts Spellbinders ~ A2 Floral Ribbon Threader.

The front also has a tag made from the Magnolia ~ Wrapped Starlight die.

So now for the back. I have created the scallopy shapes with Spellbinders ~ A2 Curved Borders One die and made a little pocket.

Added some dragony tags using the Magnolia ~ So Wrapped Lovely die.

Also to the face of the pocket, I added a Magnolia ~ Dream Tag

Inside, I have made a pull-out notebook.

Here is the front:

And here is the back.
