Poppy Hideaway

Good morning, Today we see the launch of Tonic's Double detail Die & Stencil Sets and 9 new coloured mousses ,join jodie at 12 noon today on create and craft for fabulous demonstrations and plenty of inspiration from the teams samples
The mousse is a dream to use with the stencils or using as a guiding wax ect it's texture is very soft and creamy and so very easy to apply I am in love with all the colours there are some lovely summer colours in this new collection , the dies are so pretty an absolutely adorable collection

Items used :-
Poppy Hideaway Die
Poppy Hideaway Stencil
Twisted Veranda Layering Set
Entwined Trellis -Delicate Daisies
Entwined Trellis - Bellus buttercup
Arboreal Dream Die set
Nuvo embellishment mousse- Aquamarine

The card is 8x8 with matting and layering I thought the hot pink and Aquamarine worked so well together and any excuse for adding gingham is good with me .
The poppy Hideaway die cut is very easy to stencil, once cut out i then align the stencil to the die cut and then I mask around the edges of the stencil and then apply the mousse with a pallet knife dragging the mousse from the top down to the bottom adding any extra mousse that's left over back to the pot .

I then remove the tape and lift the stencil carefully away from the die cut I found this method worked extremely well for me but you can also apply a temporary spray to the back of your stencil and then place over your die cut so there are no gaps between your die cut and stencil so when you apply the mousse it doesn't seep.
I finished the card by adding a few flowers and flourishes and nuvo drops

Thanks for taking a peek today be sure to visit again as I have many more cards to share with you from this collection

Memory albums 2 Christmas Themed

Good morning everyone, just popping by to share the Memory Book 2 collection with you from Tonic Studios,also at the bottom of this blog post you will find a step by step slide show of me talking my way  through a basic album ,you  certainly  love these albums and being a newbie to albums myself I am  getting a bit addicted.
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…
