Happy Birthday Mum

Hi there my blog friends. Today's card is one I made for my Mum's Birthday. She loves roses so I dug out my lovely Prima paper and Prima roses and came up with this.

The edges of the paper and the white Prima rose are inked with Victorian Velvet Distress Ink. I cut the centre from the card and the patterned paper with my Nesties labels 16 and sandwiched the acetate in between.

The focal image is a textured rub on, easy eh? A little stickles around the edge of the window for a bit of sparkle.

I added some very pale pink mottled paper on the insert so that it can be seen through the acetate window. It has just enough colour to give a nice contrast against the white centre panel.

So, there you have it. Easy! I'm entering this for this week's Our Creative Corner Challenge - Frame It!.

Thanks for stopping by.

Happy crafting,

Another Bo Bunny Birthday Book

Hi blog friends. Long time no see!

My recent illness has meant that I have had neither the energy nor the inclination to craft - I must have been sick! I have been able to play a little.

The first project was to make a book for my lovely friend Gill's 40th Birthday. I chose to use the Bo Bunny Olivia Collection.

When I first saw this collection I wasn't sure about it, but when I started to put it together I changed my mind. Some interesting colour combos and girly without being pink.

The tag on the left hand page is in an acetate pocket so that the lovely flower detail on the tag can still be seen.

The flowers on the left hand page are mounted onto acetate so they appear to float over the photo mat behind.


This was a fun project to play with. Looking forward to seeing it again when it has pictures in it.
Thanks for stopping by. I hope to be around a little more regularly, health issues permitting!
Happy crafting.
