Flower Blossom Sequins

20% off Sparkly sequins

Meiflower have a 20% off sale on their sequin flower blossoms at the moment, I love these and often use them on my cards, a group together make great flower centres, or a few dotted amongst a flower arrangement adds an extra special touch, but, for a completely different use, my friend Donna, added some on to her daughter Chloe's party dress to make it extra sparkly (Chloe can never have enough sparkles, LOL!  she is a real girly girl.

Here is a picture of  Chloe looking gorgeous in her party dress

and here is a close up of the sequins around the bottom of the dress.

Which just goes to prove that craft embellishments are not just for cards LOL!

see you soon,

For a Teen Boy

Why is it that boy cards are so hard to do, probably because most of us prefer adding flowers and sparkles and bows, which is not quite right on a boy card.

Image  D'Arcy's Diaries_059
Papers - Designs By Dani - Dapper Dan
Circle and star dies - Sizzix
Sentiment - made by me
Red Cord - Meiflower

I love the coloured cord that Mei has in store for boy cards, it's the perfect thing to tie around buttons, stars etc., not quite as girly as ribbon. On this card I have wrapped it around the raised panel and also the stars, it just adds a bit of something extra to the card don't you think?!

Thanks for stopping by,

Wedding Bears

The Clipart Fairy has some new kits in store called Wedding Bears, both interactive and ready to print kits in pink and lilac. Meiflower ribbons, pearls,gems and diamant√© buckles are the perfect embellishments for wedding cards so here are a couple I made with the new kits and Meiflower goodies.

 Easel card decorated with purple organza ribbon and lilac gems.
 Square card decorated with metallic silver ribbon and silver pearls
 Aperture landscape card decorated with organza ribbon, small oval diamant√© buckle and gems
Tent card decorated with silver 4mm satin ribbon and gems.
The tent card also turns into a mini easel card.

Some of the colours of ribbon and small oval buckles are new stock and not yet up on the website, if you are looking for a particular colour or item it is definitely worth sending Mei an email as they have a lot of new colours in all their ribbons, and have you seen the lush new wedding ribbons, definitely going on my shopping list.
