Good Afternoon Crafters

This is a little quick project made with nesting dies these are of course tattered lace ones, but you could use any.I used my doggy BONNIE  she is a welsh terrier. just thought a cute face for the example. Maybe im bias.


 Cut larger one out 3 times as i have three pictures. Then the smaller one with the middle cut out,so 2 dies used to cut this one (3 sizes in total)


Used foam pads on the back of frame one you give you dimension Used any card stock you like.
Then with the good old trusty glue gun added a length of ribbon (good thick one) to back and a few embellishments and bows..


I added a few paw prints free hand used tonic nuvo drops for the texture on them an the shine.
also added a little glitter.

Morning from a lovely spring day here in Northern Ireland

This is another few from the samples made for tattered lace using their gorgeous Modern Romance collection.

 The little girl and her cat are called 'Charlotte and Tilly'.


 I really enjoyed coloring her in and found her beautiful something vintage about her dress, really lovely die to work with, would give you lots of scope for different cards to make.


This was a simple little card using some
lovely papers i had. I also embossed the little gate and added some flower soft around it.









this was Charlotte's dress cut and hung on line with a few birdie friends form ( a little bird told me die tattered lace)

Box dies from tattered lace, some different ideas i used

Box die used from tattered lace and i decorated it with paper flowers and others.
Matt and layered card and added pearls around .



 This is the same die used but i made it into a pin custion by added some 'stuffing' into the top and covered with material, used glue gun to secure, Looks difficult but really quite easy to do as you have all the pieces from the die.
 Little scissors are another die which i have from tattered lace.

 Another idea to change the look again of the box.

Making it more Christmas with some foam glue and glitter and added white dots around
the bows are another die which i have(tattered lace again used) 
 i used a letterbox die and cut out from the sides and cut another letterbox out of red then set back into recess glued on the back all this is done before box is folded.

Hello Everyone Glad you dropped by.Once again im sorry for not updating blogg will try my best lol time does fly when you're crafting!


Here is a little BUTTERFLY vintage keepsake box.

i bought this little box for very little money think maybe £2.
This is really easy to make..honest...all you have to do is  add your paper any one you like and glue down,cut of around paper and with a little sandpaper rub round the edges to distress.
 let it dry and then
use your distress inks and rub around the box.



 On the inside i added paper to back panel and added a little bit of lace.
I left it soaking in some tea over night and washed it out and dried to give it the age effect.
The butterfly is from tattered lace one of their beautiful dies that i have the pleasure to work with.
I cut it out a few times and inked it with distress ink and doubled it up glue gun in center and added second wings. 
The corners of the book are glue gun added and i dropped some Tonic pearl drops inside and let it fill and left to dry gives a really nice effect.
 Added more lace around the outside with glue gun same on top of window bit another butterfly.
Gems whatever you like in the middle of butterfly.
Also a little sentiment and hung a key etc for detail on front.

 Some more little e ideas with the same butterfly and distress inks



A little card using the beautiful papers that i had

Hello my friends

Sorry its been awhile since last posted, but i've so busy with wedding stuff and on holiday too.lolI will try and post more again soon.


please forgive my craft room mess above
 (need to tidy and get a bigger one)

this is a baby card made with TATTERED lace dies, they make the card so easy, honest just a little inking and sticking.



 some wedding favours with die tags ...lots an lots.. of cutting!!








This was an old frame i had and used chalk paint and lots of distressing and sanding back with a high light using gold oil bar and some crackle glaze used as well.

Then i used modge podge and layed down paper (pattern side down) into modge podge and left to dry, when dry damp with cloth lightly rub away backing of paper and you're left with an aged effect.Hope you like it
