The heart was created with a Spellbinders ~ Lace Hearts die.

when witches go riding ...

Good morning! Today I have a witchy poo halloweeny mini album to share with you for our Halloween challenge at Crafts 4 Eternity this week.

I saw this idea on the Sizzix blog, so don't claim it for my own, but I put my own spin on it.

Papers: My Mind's Eye ~ Mischievous.

The dots across the top were made with a Tim Holtz Dot Fade Layering Stencil. I used texture paste mixed with black Liquitex ink and before it dried, I sprinkled on some Crystal distress glitter to make it sparkle a bit.

The cat of course is a Tim Holtz die, which I cut from black glitter cardstock.

Here is the inside of the album.

The *pages* are made from the Tim Holtz Sizzix Pocket Envelope die and I made 8 in total.

I won't bore you by showing each page, as they are all similar.

However, I also added to each pocket, a little insert for attaching photos etc.

Here is the back, with more texture paste.

love bird birdhouse

Good morning! Today I am sharing my project at Everybody Art Challenge, where our theme this week is feathers!

I have been buying up Sizzix dies lately, can't get enough and some of them are great for using up scraps.

For this birdhouse, I used the Sizzix Birdhouse Rounded 3D die. I covered each side of the chipboard with cardstock before cutting out each piece. I also cut out an additional circle base with a Spellbinders die.

Papers: Echo Park ~ Yours Truly.

The little flowers were created with a Martha Stewart die and I added a gem to the centre.

For the fence I used a Magnolia die.

I used a Spellbinders ~ Fancy Framed Tags Two die to accentuate the opening. Added a cute little Prima bird.

On each side I have some cute Papermania feathers.

The right side with the feathers.

Here is the roof! 

The butterfly is of course a Tim Holtz butterfly die.

You may notice some glitteryness about this project. I used Tim Holtz ~ Clear Rock Candy Distress Glitter.

This is actually a box and here you can see.

Thank you for looking.

Good morning! This week at Everybody Art Challenge, we have a new challenge which is RIBBON. 

I decided to make a book card all tied up with ribbon. I've wanting to do one for ages and now that I have, I want to make more! So cute!

I have used Prima ~ Printery papers and die cut the frame with a die.

I painted the cute vintage image with clear crackle paint, but think I might have over done it a little!

Here's the inside.

The left hand side has a pocket with a little tag in it.

And here is the booky bit on the right.

Finally the back.

Thank you for looking.

♥ Venice

Good morning everyone! Today at Crafts 4 Eternity we have a cinnamon colour recipe challenge. Just use a combination of the following colours.
I started out with these colours on my image and then it just kind of evolved!

I created a background with distress inks and water stain. Then I stamped it with Penny Black ~ Venetian Summer

The heart was a grunge board which I inked with black ink and the letters were diecut using the Sizzix Tim Holtz Wanted Alphabet die.

I then painted the whole piece with Distress Crackle Paint ~ Clear Rock Candy.

Papers: Cosmo Cricket ~ Circa 1934.

Thank you for looking.
