Exciting News

Hello again everyone, 2 posts in one day that doesnt happen often does it lol.

Ok so a few weeks ago I was contacted by the lovely Sandie & asked if I would like to be Guest Designer for La La Land Crafts for 3 months............would I are you kidding!!!!! Seriously I was sooooooo excited I couldn't type yes fast enough.
Then as it got close nerves kicked in & so now whilst still be excited I'm also incredibly nervous.

Anyway without anymore babble I am on Team Friday & this week our challenege is 
Strawberry & Cream.
I went with the colours......although Strawberry is one of my favourite fruits mmmmm. I made a gift set, a card with a matching little gift box. The card is smaller than normal so I
kept the embellishing on the low ;-)
The awesome stamp is 'Selfie Mollie' & I coloured her with distress inks.....I have actually coloured her up 3 times as I lurve this stamp ;-)
Colours used will be at the bottom of the post.
The papers are actually Maja Design 'A Gift For You', which shows that some papers can be used all year round.
In the top left square we have  a resin frame with 'Friend' in it which was cut from a scrap of DP. In the larger square I have used one of LLLC's fabulous Butterfly dies & added a red rose to the centre.
Flowers are from Noor Design UK.
Used some gorgeous lace & tulle trim & attached it along the bottom of the fabulous fence.
The little matching gift bag/box I made using my Silhouette Cameo.......yes hubster brought me one & I LOVE IT!! This is what I made with it, I got the template from the Silhouette Store.
Used more fabulous La La Land Crafts dies, they really are awesome dies, cut brilliantly every single time.

Colours used for Selfie Mollie are.........

Sweet Little Girl

Hello everyone how are you all?
I thought I better start posting these creations I've made & still not shown on here. I've problems with my laptop these last few days as it got a very bad virus. Luckily I scheduled my DT post last week.
Anyway this is a card I made a few weeks ago, I soooooo love La La Land Craft baby images....ok all their images & their dies are to die for ;-)
The papers are my favourite baby papers EVER!! Yep they are Maja Design 'Vintage Baby' I've used 12x12 'Precious' & 12x12 'Our Little Miracle'. I've used a Go-Kreate die for the shapes & machine stitched every layer.

I've used quite a few dies on this card most of them are Magnolia from the doo-hickey sets, I have used dies from Volume 8, volume 9 & volume 10. 
The 2 Heart balloons in the top right corner are from Volume 10 & Tracy has some of these sets in her store still......love this set its awesome!!! Pop on over here to order it as once they are gone.....they really are gone!!

This is the inside to match the front so you can see the papers better before I put a place to write on.
The little rabbit there is from Magnolia Club Set Volume 8 & I've just used the reverse sides of the papers I've used.

Ok the super cute baby is 'Sleeping Marci' from La La Land Crafts & I coloured her with distress markers & refills on Fabriano Extra White Smooth....OMG I love this more than Langton!! You can of course get this fantastic paper here. Now I coloured her weeks ago but I can tell which colours I've used......
Skin - Vintage Photo & Tattered Rose
Clothes, hat & booties - Victorian Velvet, Pumice Stone 
I added Glitter to her dummy/pacifier & the tassels on her hat.
She has been fussy cut out & then placed onto Little Darlings Gilded Oval die.

Flowers are of course WOC from Noor Design UK as are the little pomegranates, love these!! In the bottom right corner I've used a La La Land Die called 'Honeycomb' but filled in some of the blanks...you can see it better on the first photo.
The leaves are from a die from Magnolia Volume 9. Sentiment is from Maja Design Vintage Baby Die-Cuts.
Can you believe I added no lace to a girl card.....I didnt realise til I took photo's...though you wouldnt have been able see the lace anyway lol.

Ok thats it from me got a busy week as we go away on holiday on monday for a week....its my birthday that week as well so it will be lovely & the whole family is going :-)

Thanks for stopping by lovelies.
Tatty bye, big hugs

Noor Design UK DT Post - Follow Your Dreams

Hello everyone how are you all. I'm here with a card for a female & a card for a male today.
The first one I'm showing you is a card I made for my cousin's 18th Birthday which we travelled down south for at the weekend. The card didnt go quite to plan & didnt quite get finished inside :-(
All links to items used will be at the bottom of this post.
I have used the super pretty Forget Me Knot papers again as her favourite colour is turquoise/blue.

I have used some gorgeous Scrapiniec, the round frame is Doily Lace round frame which I painted with white gesso then added blue frantage. I then added the words' Always Follow Your Dreams' & covered them with Ivory Fran-Tage........I thought the wording seemed appropriate for an 18th who has lots of dreams for their future.

The inside I made different & I got the idea a very long time ago from Pinterest, I've made one similar before but not with pockets like this one. There is one to hold a tag & one to hold money.
For the shape I used the Marianne Design Wave Border die, I also used it on the front.

The letters are from Pion Design Mr Tom's Border's. I cut out letters for her name & numbers for 18th at the bottom.. I hung 2 little charms from the name. Of course added lots of gorgeous WOC flowers from Tracy's store.

I also made a male card with the awesome Pion Design Mr Tom's Treasures papers....boy o boy I soooo love these papers. I'm not a big fan of making male card but these make you WANT to make them, I love them!!

I'm hoping you can see the dimension on this picture. The stamp of the car in the middle is a Joy Crafts stamp & I first stamped it onto some Pion paper then stamped it again & fussy cut it out & popped it on some foam pads to raise it up.......I place it slightly off the first stamped image so it was like it was creating more of a 3D effect.

Love the new fence die, perfect for male & female cards this it. I cut it out in black card & placed it behind the image......its like the car is parked in front of the gates ;-) The buttony-thingy at the top (technical term lol) I cut out one of the circle images from the Mr Tom's Tags Sheet & placed it upon a metal.......I'm not sure what ita called to be honest lol, but I think it looks good lol.

Pop on over to Noor Design UK, Tracy has added LOTS more Scrapiniec..........oh my the selection is just fabulous........you will be spoilt for choice!!

Thanks for stopping by, take care & enjoy your day.
Lotsa hugs Vicky xxx
