Tilda with egg basket

Finally, I did it again, ...another Magnolia card. I don't get much crafty time lately and this one has been lying around for a while waiting to be finished.
I love my new stamp from Magnolia, it matches with other stamps I have from the collection. It has a rural feel to it and matches with my other Tildas holding baskets and flowers.
Lovely Webster's Pages papers used on the front of the card. The red and white dot and green gingham papers are from Lidl. Green silk Petaloo flowers used as leaves and Prima flowers sprayed and painted with Glimmer Mist and Glimmer Glaze. Sunflower and red roses from John Lewis.
Adorable little Tilda is coloured with Faber Castel pencils. These are very easy to use and are very blendable.
I used a sentiment from the paper collection and cut it out with a Magnolia tag die.
Another view of the completed card.

Bridal shower favour boxes

I made 16 favour boxes for the bridal shower using Tag, Bags, Boxes and more. The DCWV paperstack Mariposa was my go to paper selection again. I hope they never discontinue this range, it has the prettiest papers with glitter and gold foil.

Heart shaped closure on the top of the boxes.
I saved the cut out umbrellas from the invitations and glued them on the boxes with a thank you sticker.
A simple design, but very pretty because of the papers. Each box had little gifts e.g. lip gloss, soap, bath roses, etc.

Thanks for visiting, hope you like my little craft projects.

Bride to be

Big congrats to bride to be Loretta. Hope you had a lovely time.

If you want to know how I made these pompoms then have a look at this video: Giant Flower Pompoms
I made 7 pompoms with 10 layers each; 2 cream, 2 yellow, 2 soft pink and 1 in fuchsia.

Bridal shower wreath

Now we have finally had the bridal shower done, I can finally show you what I made for the party.
This is the wreath I made to decorate the table.
Gold glitter cardstock leaves cut with Spellbinders dies. Gold ribbon tied around a styro foam ring.
Punched glitter cardstock centres.
Papertrey button centres and gemstone flower centres. White crepe flowers with Stickles Gold edging.

The completed wreath with double bow as seen on a Becca bits video by Becca Feeken. A hot glue      

gun is essential to get it all assembled and secured.

Gentle baby card

My colleague had her second baby, a little boy Aaron at the end of April.
I made this little card for her. It is not completely my own idea, I saw it in a book and changed it slightly.
It is easy to make if you have the Cricut and the Plantin Schoolbook and Graphically Speaking cartridges.
The background paper is from K&Co Wedding papers, blue and cream cardstock from American Crafts.
Stardust glitter is used to cover the little stars with a Melissa Francis pearl in the middle.
Cream satin ribbon from Paperchase, tied in a pretty bow. The inside is also covered with designer paper and has a stamped sentiment by Papertrey that reads; welcome baby.
