Peace love & joy

Good morning, I sit here in my craft room and the sun has most defiitely got his hat on today yay lets hope it continues.

Today's card i would like to share with you is on the frosty side

Dies used:

  •    Tonic Boudoir square base die set
  • Tonic peace, joy & love sentiment  die set
  • Tonic scalloped circle layering die
  • Marianne poinsettia die

The card is an 7"x7" card blank,i added some gold glitter card behind the lattice square ,glitter card can be tricky to stick if your using a tape adhesive, I find a good tacky pva glue does the trick, i then cut out 7 large & 7 small poinsettia leaves shaped them with my fingers and again stuck together using a wet glue i then cut the centre of the poinsettia in gold glitter card i  cut a scalloped circle and added the peace joy & love sentiment to it and placed it in the middle the card ,I  finished with gold liq pearls from ranger.

Until next time enjoy crafting

Victoria xx

The first album I would like to share with you  is Christmas themed I know Christmas, but thinking ahead what a fantastic way of keeping those treasured memories past or present for gifts or yourself to pass down through the family. I think it's so important to put photos in albums with as much journaling as you can ,my husband and I have many photos  in our loft and nobody to ask who these picture's  are as there are no dates or names on the back of the photos and all my husband's side have passed away so i think this is so important.

All the album is decorated with craft perfect card stock apart from the red base card which is fill a box and is 3oogs…
