Black and green...


It's  Friday and is again time for my post. 
Today I'm sharing with you a card in black and green colors..
I used Mintay Life Stories 12 x 12 paper pads.

I used both sides... the black and the green side.
Then I cut out a little tag. You can use it for writing or just stamping a sentiment ...
Then I added on both sides Scrapman Doilie...

To embellish my little card I added few open roses of different sizes, cheesecloth and Scolloped Pearl Rhinestone trim.
Then I added A heart pendant with a little bow....
and at the end I added some Gesso here and there.

And a little card is finished.

Thank you for visiting!

Vintage Frame

Good morning everyone sharing with you today an altered Laserowe Love MDF Oval frame which I have covered with lovely papers from Mintay Marry Me and Yuletide paper from Lemoncraft to give it a wooden look at the front.

I've added on various things starting from using a stencil on the paper before putting on the flowers and decor

I have used the Bloomar Oval Frame and the Heart as well - sprayed them with mist to give it a bit of a shabby chic look

The peach flower I did myself with foamiran using the lovely Lady E dies which we have in store with some pearl buttons in the centre. The light mint one is from Prima Marketing.

Behind the flowers I used some organza ribbon and the lovely lace gwendolyne

A pearl trim was added on over the frame and I put in a cute butterfly in the centre

I love the rhinestone and pearl trim too so I added some top and bottom.

Hope you have a great week xoxo

Mintay - Marry Me

Wedding season is definitely upon us - using Mintay papers was a much have, they're just perfect for this time of year.
I personally think these are the best so fair - absolutely gorgeous. 

Not a lot of products were used on this card, as it really didn't need them. 
Once you've cut everything out from the cut-out sheets and put them altogether, it just wasn't necessary. I didn't want to over fill, so a simple lotus flower in cream was enough for me.
Used Lady E leaves die - sprayed with water, then shaped.
All attached to card using silicone to give some depth.

How wonderful as it been put together - and the recipient loved it.
A keepsake for sure.

Tag Album with Box


Everyone loves to receive handmade mini albums!  I love making them and I was especially excited to make this one with all the amazing, beautiful papers and embellishments available in the Crafteezee shop.

This simple mini album was made by cutting out tags and then placing pockets with pull-out cards between each tag before binding the album together with a two-band spine.   

I constructed a box for the album to fit in to keep it protected and then added an extra touch by placing a pull-out drawer at the base. 

The beautiful soft lavender colors of these Pion Design papers make for a special feminine project. All the gorgeous lace, trim, buttons, hardware, papers, and Scrapiniec chipboard for this project can be found in the Crafteezee shop.  These embellishments can turn simple projects into special creations!

Have a great day and great week ahead!

Happy Saturday!

This Bloomville Paper by Mintay is amazing. I did a lot of fussy cutting and used pop up tape to create a 3D effect.

Happy 70th Birthday

Hello Everyone,

I was asked to make a 70th Birthday card.  I chose the Pion Design New Beginnings collection of papers, they are beautiful and co-ordinate perfectly.  I added a tag to the top centre that pulls out with Birthday text and tied with a wax cord.

Taking centre stage is a Laserowe Navy  Chipboard and I cut a clock out of Where the Roses Grows paper.

Below is a Laserowe Box, which complimented the card perfectly and I left it naked.

All the flowers are handmade using Foamiran and Lady E Dies, listed below.

Hope you like it :)

Friendship in a window

Hello everyone and welcome to another week. Today I have created a different type of card for you. I have created some foamiran flowers with the lovely Lade E dies :)

This is a farewell card for a dear friend of mine who is also a work colleague. I wanted to create something to show her that friendship lasts forever.

All things I have used are in the shop links to them are at the end of the post.

I have backed up the window die with the lovely Pion Design images with lovely quotes and pictures...this says 'friends are the sunshine of life'. You get different images or quotes and they are perfect to use for different ocassions.

Not sure if you spotted the lovely hyacinth flowers we have in the shop but I felt it matched this lovely Pion design paper to a tee so I used one today on my project.

I have sprayed the white foamiran flowers with the glitter mist spray and used white gesso on the window.

I have to admit that lilac/mauve/purple are my favourite colours so you will be seeing a lot of my creations with this colour.... hopefully you like it too
