Victorian elegance

Good afternoon and welcome to my blog,Today I am sharing a card created for the launch of Tonic Studios  easel creator and Victorian layering die sets.

Such a beautiful set of dies with so many possibilities you are only limited by your own imagination.
These sets are so elegant and work both together or separately as you can see you can make an elegant card with just a minimal amount of dies and I don't know about you but I luv monochromatic  cards .

Thank you for taking the time to visit my blog today short and sweet post today but will share more samples with you in the next day or so.
Until next time

My Moments

Good morning everyone, well the sun is shining and it's a beautiful warm day here.Today I have a couple of things I prepped for the MY Moments launch for Tonic Studios.
Everyone loves a designer handbags and so I thought the lock and hinges would work a treat with the Kensington bag, the bag was created using craft perfect pearlescent  card stock and also satin sheen gold and mirri a perfect gift for someone with maybe a little jewellery gift inside.

For this card I used tonic adorable Baby Rococo  die set along with a lace borders strip and the English Picnic die set & also the Harrop die set but what a great way to personalise  your cards and projects with the months of the yr.

Thank you for visiting my blog today a short but sweet blog today as it's all go in the craft room lots of amazing things coming your way in future weeks and months so keep your eyes peeled you won't want to miss.

Until next time 

Happy Anniversary

Good afternoon everyone, I'm on a roll today trying to get my blog up to date,it has been so busy here recently, anyway I have a card to share with you from the fabulous Tonic Studios My Moments die sets.
Very simple card to create for an Anniversary  card it could be a Ruby Anniversary  card with these colours but the Months of the yr really do let you personalise your projects as you can see on this card the waste from the dies has also be used as embellishments the little silver corners are the waste from the large lock,the tiny little hearts at the point of the larger hearts are  from the waste from the heart lock it really is worth looking at the waste that comes out of your dies as there really isn't much to put in the bin when you have a good look.

Catch you all soon 

Until next time

I have also been busy with prep this weekend so have made a mess already  but today I would like to share a bit of a mixed media project I made using Tonic Studios My Moments  die sets Hinges & Locks.
The heart was  cut using the affections die set and you need to cut 4 of the hearts in a thick ish card stock 300gsm was used for this  the top layer was ran through an embossing folder then glued flat to the other hearts it's has a really good  feel of chipboard ,then using a whole punch punch a hole at the top to thread ribbon through to hang it up and some …

Tudor Town Street

Good morning everyone,welcome to my blog ,Today I am going to share the absolutely fantastic Tudor Town die sets from Tonic Studios ,these have been so well designed the way  the window on the emporium-toy shop  its fantastic and so easy to make.
The construction of this street was building  3x of the shops a pub and church once I had decorated each building I threaded a battery operated  set of led light just into the base of each building  and they were available from the local £1 stores ,once all the lights were threaded through I then glued the bottom flaps shut .Then I glued all the buildings flat with hot glue to a piece of foam board

This is the street in the dark with the lights really bright  the windows are made with vellum,the smoke for the chimney is little pieces of tulle . The lights are fastened to the back on its side so you can turn it on and off without a problem and also slide the cover off to change the batteries easily enough. Added decoration was to cover the foam…
