No 1. Uncle

Good morning everyone and welcome to my blog , today I am sharing with you a brand new launch from Tonic Studios the waterfall die sets there are two sets  Cascading  hearts &  Bouquets & banners  .       
To create this card you need :-
Bouquet & banners  waterfall die set
Rococo men's- football shoes
Rococo men's grass from the golf set 
Rococo men's football
Rococo wild buildables panda set - trophy cup
Alphabet die set 
Family sentiments - Uncle
Framed screens- garden trellis/ Blocked  parquet
Craft perfect pistachio green
Craft perfect fern    green
Craft perfect Bright White
Craft perfect cornflower blue
Craft perfect Black
Black 300gsm black base card stock

The card blank is a 7x7 gate fold card with mat & layers inside the card the waterfall mechanism is in white with Black and white layers  and the layers for this card have been kept plain with no lacy detail added, on each layer you have no 1 on the top layer  inside the banner, going down it's a man's theme so you have a football, football boot and a trophy cup from the panda buildables set. The bottom of the waterfall has a small piece of blue ribbon for a pulley, remember when you are putting the mechanism  together to really give the score lines a good crease and when you place the  decorative toppers to place them to the top line not over the line  this will make sure it works beautifully .
The outside on the card is decorated using the  panels as they remind me of a football net, again mat and layers in cornflower blue craft perfect and Bright White Craft perfect , for decoration the football  boot and grass was added and  from the family sentiments set uncle was cut in white and backed on black Craft perfect and then placed over half the card front.

Materials needed to create this card
   Cascading Hearts waterfall die set 
Congrats sentiment
Bowscale Layering die sets
Ivory craft perfect
Ivory base card stock 
Speciality gold satin card stock
Nuvo drops ivory seashell
Satin bow

The base card was created cutting two of the largest  dies and placing a score line in the back and then gluing the front panel to the tab you created this gives you a beautiful shaped card base then with mat and layers with the beautiful luxury gold  speciality card and ivory craft perfect the waterfall mechanism is made with a 280 gsm cream card stock again as before make sure all the score lines are burnished and when you place the hearts to the base you place then up to the line this is very important,  because if you go over the line the mechanism  won't work properly, also make sure your hearts are lined up so they are straight.
The top piece of card the waterfall is attached to has a little more detail added but die cutting into each corner of the card stock with the detailed lacy heart that's in the waterfall set.
I was thinking of a golden wedding Anniversary  with this card or a wedding.
Each heart has been cut out in ivory craft perfect and gold  satin  and the detail cut into the ivory card so the gold just pops through. You could add photos or secret messages on each heart or the date they met lots of little finishing touches could be made to personalise  this card or project.

Thank you for joining me today,I will be posting more this evening from the mica mists and shimmer powders,don't forget to tune into Hochanda today to see both Jodie and Paula demonstrate xx

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…
