Anything Goes At La La Land Crafts

Hello everyone how are you? Wow we have been getting some lovely weather recently.......I think summer may finally be here by the sea.....but ssshhhh we dont want scare him away.

So lets talk about why I'm really here today....it's to show my creation for the La La Land Crafts Blog & this week the theme for us girlies was 'Anything Goes'.........ya gotta lurve those themes ;-)

Pic heavy I'm afraid ;-)
So I made a gift set for a baby...........I love making baby cards I think they are my favourite & why not when LLLC do the most gorgeous babies.

Isn't this sweet little boy just the most darling baby......
Paper are of course my favourite baby papers..........yep Maja Design Vintage Baby & I've used all 12x12 sheets on this set.

Inisde I used the same paper & added 2 die cuts in there as well. Of course all papers have been machine stitched all around.

The Rocking Horse I cut out twice to layer it up. On the small tag I placed 2 balloons which I fussy cut out of some matching paper, the smaller balloon I popped on foam pads to raise it up.

This is the top of the matching gift box & again I've used all matching papers. The rattle I cut out twice & the 2nd one I cut using the paper but just added a little bit of it....just a splash of blue ;-)

The gift box could be used for anything small....little socks or even one of those identity bracelets.....most people love them. The bracelet here is just for photo purposes of course ;-)

I also added a tag which is cut form the paper set & added a charm.
All papers as you can see have also been stitched on the box as well.

Noor Design UK DT Card - With Love On Your Wedding

Hello everyone, how are you all.
I'm here again today with another Wedding Card, this one however I has no coloured image, only the uber gorgeous Scrapiniec that I cant get enough of ;-)
I've used the new super gorgeous, super delicious Lemoncraft 'Just Love Me' paper, oh my this really is so pretty & I made sure I brought both sizes. For this I've used 12x12 sheets which will be in the links at the bottom of the post.

Isn't this Wedding Couple just divine....yes the bridge also comes with it.....when Tracy sent me this in the DT pack it was one of the first things play with........after some dies that is ;-)
I've added Pearl Dots using the pearl pen here & there to add a bit of something extra.....most brides have pearls on their wedding day.

I've used 2 lots of leaves, the larger one being from Doohickey Volume 9. I've kept the flowers to small clusters as I didnt want to over power the beautiful Scrapiniec.
Ooops forgot to add this in before I did the Inlinkz. On the inside I decorated to match the front as always & added the 'Wedding Text' die with the same matching paper.
I've been saving this pleated tulle for something special, I have the ivory aside for something special too which I'm in the middle....show you another time ;-)
This stuff really is so pretty & perfect for wedding cards....ok perfect for most crafts to be honest.
I also added some Rose Trim & some Pearl String along the top of the tulle.
You can also see the dimension of the bridge as I popped it onto the rose to lift it up.

Hubster recently brought me lots of new crafty goodies & I finally got around to buying that gorgeous die that the couple are placed on.......isn;t it just divine, I love it!!! Think that may be used quite a bit ;-)
Hope you like my pretty pale pink wedding card........for those pink ladies out there ;-)

Before I go I will tell you that Tracy has got a sale on over at Noor Design Uk, yep she has more new yummy stock arriving soon & she needs the space.........desperately...

Card and a SALE

Hello everyone, how is your weekend going so far. It was so beautiful up here & quite warm but thankfully we had a lovely breeze coming from the sea.........perfect for drying my washing.
Now its gone quite grey as I think Mr Sunshine has gone sleep....come on wakey wakey its summmer time...........I think, at least that's what I hear ;-)

Ok I made this card a couple of months ago, I got an order for a Ruby Anniversary card & I made a few for her to choose from. This could be used though for any occasion really.
This is not the card she picked, she picked another one which I will show you another time, it was actually my favourite one ;-)
I didnt do any with images on as not everyone likes images. As its Ruby I just went with white & obviously adding red flowers, embossing & pearls......lots of yummy pearls :-)

I used the Tied Together embossing folder, love this embossing folder. I applied pearl dots with my pearl pen on every cross over.

Nearly all of the yummy flowers are of course from Noor Design UK. As are the Pomegranate Apples & the Pearl Cascade that is weaving through the flowers.
The die cuts are Leaf die cuts from a Magnolia Club Kit, heart shape from a MF punch & there's also an older MB die there too which I cut out a few times......I think I will always keep this one in my stash.

On this one you can see the dimension of the top part which was cut out using the Crealies On The Edge die No.14.

I've used 2 lots of Pearls at the bottom, flat single row of pearls & also a strip of double row pearls....both from Noor Design UK. There is also a strip of pearls along the top which was from LLC.

There is a fantastic sale on at the minute over at Noor Design with upto 40% off a lot of items.........yes 40%..now thats awesome. Tracy needs to make way for new stock arriving soon, so grab a cuppa & take advantage of this sale right here, right now......you would be mad to miss it.
Now Tracy & her husband Lawrence are celebrating their 30th Anniversary next week so are deservedly taking a week off. All orders placed from Monday 18th July 12.00 (bst) will be dispatched when the store reopens Monday 25th July.

Have a fabulous weekend whatever you are doing.....for us as always its family time & Sundays we always have a meal together. Love love love weekends.

Thanks for stopping by.
Lotsa hugs Vicky xxx

Hello everyone.
Today I have a creation for La La Land Crafts & this week us girlies had a photo to use as inspiration.

So I went with colours, ok 2 colours which are my faves in the crafting world....
.....pink & purples....mmmmm. Now I was in a rush when I made this & I was ill so really not at my best & instead used a digi image that I already had printed out ;-(
I have used the gorgeous LLLC Butterflies dies & placed an antique bronzed nib in the centre....love these. I've also used the fabulous Honeycomb die.
Used gorgeous lace from my stash & of course the Stempelglede sentiment was perfect for this little lady.

The papers I've used are sooooooo pretty & perfect colours for what I wanted, they are Craft & You 'Lavender Garden 12x12'.... I've used the 12x12 pad but the sheets I've used are 'Lavender Garden 06 & the reverse side of  Lavender Garden 01' which is such a pretty patch work pattern. WOC flowers from Noor Design UK.

Noor Design UK DT Card - Wedding

Hello everyone how are you all? I'm back off our holiday now, we had a lovely week, no internet or phone signal where we were staying but gorgeous views across the coutryside & all my family around.......who needs internet when I had those ;-)
It was also my birthday while I was away & hubster even put balloons up & served me breakfast in bed.....totally fabulous!!
Anyway I'm here today with my DT make for Noor Design UK blog & I'm here with a wedding card using a stamp from Whimsy.
Links to items used will be at the bottom of the post.
Excuse the poor photo :-(
This one is called 'Wedding Day' & is from the Art by Mi Ran Collection. I stamped onto Fabriano watercolour paper.....the bee's knee's in the watercolour paper world let me tell you ;-)
I coloured this image with distress inks & distress markers. The groom's suit I paper pieced.

This little flower I made using this fabulous Crafty Cocktail stamp & die set.
I used the same matching paper & stamped it with pumice stone distress ink, the larger die I cut 3 times & the smaller one once.

Can you see the beautiful lace peeking out there......gosh I lurve this one, one of my faves!! I also added a strip of double row pearls to the centre of the lace.
At the side I used the label die from Little Darlings Gilded Oval Die Set.

Gorgeous flowers from Noor Design UK of course & I added another string of pearls amongst the flowers........wedding day = pearls right ;-) Under there is my favourite leaf die.

The stunning papers are Craft & You 'Wedding Garden' & I machine stitched all the layers. These are so pretty & such delicate colours but can be used for all sorts of occasions.


Tracy will be receiving the new collection of Magnolia stamps this week but you can pre-order them now if you want to grab yourself a cuppa & a biscuit & head over to Noor Design UK. Also dont get me started on all the other scrumptious goodies Tracy has in stock & you know you are going to get excellent service here........the best service you could ask for!!

Well I'm off as I have a day of washing & cleaning ahead of me, so good to be back home I seriously miss my washer & cleaning when I'm away........ Yeah I know how sad am I!!

Tatty bye & enjoy your day.
Lotsa hugs Vicky xxx
