Something a little different

Today I thought I would show you a couple of box photo frames I have made over the last couple of weeks, one for my daughters friends new baby and the other for a friend of mine who was renewing her wedding vows.

All the embellishments were cut with my Silhouette machine, I then decorated the top corner of the initial with lots of Meiflower stick on gems and pearls, and added gems down the butterfly body and in the centres of the flowers on the shoes.

With this one, after embossing the white pearl card with the Couture Creations Tied Together embossing folder I added small AB stick on gems wherever the lines crossed.

Thanks for popping in,
take care,

A bit more Lavender

Here are a couple more cards from the Nitwits Lavender collection magazine commission.

 Gorgeous wide organza ribbon,threaded through a diamante ribbon buckle is used to decorate this card, I also added a stick on gem over the printed gem in the design.
and here again I covered the digital gems with real ones.

Meiflower has a great selection of ribbons in loads of colours and widths, a great choice of diamante toppers and a huge variety of gem sizes and colours, there is more available than the online store shows, so if there is a particular size or colour you are looking for it is worth ringing or emailing to enquire.

Thanks for taking a look,
take care,

Lavender, lace and a bit of bling.

I've had a busy couple of months making wedding stationery, going on holiday and doing lots of bits and bobs, which has meant the blog has been a little bit neglected, but I am finally getting a bit of time to get back to it.

Today I have a couple of cards to show you from a magazine commission I did for Papercraft Essentials issue 152 which came out on 19th October, yes, I am a just a little bit late in posting them LOL!.
I used the fabulous Nitwits Lavender collection and didn't really add much in the way of extra embellishments, just a little ribbon and bling.

 I added some 5mm satin ribbon and a gorgeous Meiflower ribbon buckle to this one.

 Black stick on gems in different sizes finished off the body of the butterfly beautifully.
and here I added gems to the digital gems that were already printed on the embellishments.

Thanks for stopping by,
Colette xx
