Guilded gift bag - kit 9.

Good morning everyone,welcome to my blog ,today i am sharing another gift bag with you all from Tonic Studios kit 9 ,now i have to say watching the tonic craft battle yesterday and our Owain creating a tag with the guilding  flakes well it got me thinking so out came the guilding flakes in gold and copper and away i went and came up with this.
Materials needed:-
Tonic Studios Craft kit 9.
Black card stock
Jet Black Craft perfect card stock
Nuvo double sided sticky sheets - A4
Nuvo -Gold guilding flakes
Nuvo- Bronze guilding flakes
Black shoe lace ribbon
Die cutting machine
Nuvo -Deluxe Adhesive
Nuvo- red liner tape

                                                               I have so say so easy to put together  and not very messy either as all my guilding flakes are in an A5 box so I work over my boxes so very little mess so anyone new to guilding flakes I would suggest putting them in a bigger clear box with a secure lid as the flakes expand you think oh these  tubs are light  but wait until you get them out of that pot you have loads and you need very little on a project.
So the base of the bag is cut from 300gsm black card stock just what i had to hand, 240gsm will absoloutely fine for this bag as you will be building up your layers.
Now you want to use a double sided sticky sheet place the double sided sticky sheet over a piece of black card stock and then die cut the plain backing panels so you need 2x large panels for the front and back and 2x side backing panels.peel off the sticky backing and carefully  place a few bits of the gold guilding flakes randomly  on your backing die cut and rub in leaving gaps you don't want to cover it all brush off the bits until  smooth then cover the rest with the copper flakes and repeat now you should have a two toned colour do this to all the backing pieces now you need to cut them all again but adding the detail die this time and die cut with jet  black Craft perfect card stock once all these are die cut place glue onto the reverse and adhere  to the backing panels, the decoration to the bag with the tags and sentiments were made the same way you will get all the cutting for the guilding flakes from an A4 sticky sheet backed onto card.
Thank you for visiting my blog today, be sure to pop back here on Friday where I will be sharing a brand new launch with you from Tonic Studios you want want to miss this one everyone xxxx

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…
