A pocket Full Of Posies Challenge #5

Winged Things!
Hello everyone :)

Sorry for the delay in the post, every time I try to use the scheduled one it doesn't seem to work and then I have endless arguments with my lap top, but it wont publish it when it is told! lol

So love the theme for our new challenge, it is sponsored by Wimsey Stamps and the gals had done a fab job with the images, I love all the cards!

My project is a long and over due one...

It is a mini swap I took part of back in May...

Both Cathy and I had agreed to take our time on the project. I was so nervous making Cathy a mini, she is so amazingly talented, own her wonderful craft shop, runs a fab challenge blog with an even more fab DT team. really, I got cold feet when I found out who I am suppose to prepare the swap for, I started it endless of times and binned it over and over again.

I really hope she likes what I had made her.Yes I finally finished it and shipped it over to Cathy, she is on holiday so I`m not sure whether she has got it yet.

Warning it will be a photo heavy post! lol

I used mount board and cut it into the size I needed, the papers are a mixture of BG and Docrafts hemp paper, I have got the hemp paper from my prev swap partner who is another very talented friend of mine- Katie in our first mini swap. The flowers {green} are from Wild Orchid Crafts, the white one is a Prima one.

The flowers on the cover are Prima as well, I won them on Julies` show ages ago together with the pearls flower bling I used. The flower on the flower shaped page I had made myself. I learned how to make them ages ago on Marions` YouTube channel.

The white and pink flower I used on the mini envelope I got from Steph in one of her amazing give aways.

The bling on the flower page I made myself. The strawberry and the butterfly are cut with my Sizzix dies and embossed with heat and stick powder and glitter. Oh and the flower is also cut with my trusted Sizzix and painted with acrylic paints and crackle paint and some distrestickles in rock candy.

Most of the pages are painted with acrylic paints and the front has the crackle and distrestickles as well on the cover and the letters.

The acetates I used are from our local craft shop and they are part of the pages underneath them.

The green flowers are Wild Orchid that I glimmer misted.

Can`t wait to see what you guys have created! this is where you can find our new challenge: Winged Things

Thank you for stopping by!

I`ll be back later with the card I had made to go with the mini and some challenges X

Pocket Full Of Posies Challenge #4 Our Sparkly Love!

Hello everyone!

I have to say that if I wasn`t a DT member in PKFOP and BTC&G My posts would probably have longer between them, and I am only saying that because, I am really happy that I get to sit and craft so often lately!
So this week it is my turn to host the new challenge, and the theme is `All That Glitter`
Anything glitzy and shiny, remember you will need to dd flowers to your projects if you want to be eligible for the prize!

I had an idea in my head for some time, of what to do with the fab photos, DH took of my princess and I. So today, I had three hours to sit and make this LO. It is made out of 9 {!} 4X4 mount boards cut by me (it took ages! lol)
gcd DP Paris nights (told you I will get the name lol) I just LOVE those DP I think it is my third project with them.

My Swirlydoos kits have finlay been used by me (They are always too pretty for using! haha), prima flowers, butterflies, swirls, Acrylic paint, crackle Timi paint, Dusty attic frame, white embossing powder.
I love it! lol

I think I need to get one of those really cool hangers for it, does anyone know where I can find it? and also the big metal rings for the binding as I am not happy with the ribbons.

So hurry up and have a look at all the fantastic makes from our very talented PFOP DT!
Can`t wait to see what you all came up with! HERE!

Thank you for stopping by and I will add some challenges later x

Oh my, can`t believe we`re in August already! Gosh how the time fly`s My princes will be starting school nursery in September and that is what she tells everyone the cutie! "I`m Going school in`tember" lol

She is starting her first swimming lesson on Monday, and I can`t believe they wont let me go in the water with her, she is only three :(
OK, August Challenge is Animal Antics, set by our most talented Geraldine.

We went to Woburn Safari park a few weeks ago and had a fantastic time, we all enjoyed it so much we started making plans to go back there on the way home! lol

I have made my very first 12 x 12 LO on a canvas.

I used acrylic paint, Maya road chipboard mini flag banner, wild orchid flowers, chipboard letters I got from `The Range` which I visited again today as I run out of the letter `A` and could not spell : s A f A r i lol
A deck of DP papers that I love and can`t remember who is it by (Sorry :))
Two photos from our day at Woburn (I have lots more and will prob print some more later this week . as I am making three more canvases withthe picturs from the Safari Park.

My second project is a paper cone decorated with some lace, Prima flowers, Wild Orchid Flowers and that same deck of papers that I REALLY love and will be making my way to `The Range` soon to get another one! lol
I was not happy with the photo I had taken for both the Canvas and the cone so I got DH to take them for me :)

Looking forward to see your Animals Antics so come and join us over at By The Cute And Girly and be in with a chance to win some FAB prizes and/or be our guest design team member for the following month!
