June Layout of the Month

Hi Lovelies, 

As you may know, every month the lovely Helen designs a Double Layout of the Month.
This month two whimsical pages have been created using Ultimate Crafts' L'Aquarelle paper range. 

The layouts feature the cool purple and blue tones from the range and of course the beautiful butterflies and flowers that just beg to be fussy cut.

This month's double layout has space for five of your precious photos.

 Helen has also used the Rambling Rose 'Grateful' stamp and die set to create the beautiful verse,
"those who are happiest are grateful for everything that they have"

The coordinating metal dragonflies, butterflies and bling 
are the perfect finishing touches.


There are a few kits left so come in quick 
if this beautiful layout took your fancy.

Nature's Sketchbook Cards

Hi lovelies,

Recently we shared a beautiful Graphic 45 Nature's Sketchbook Box created by Helen.
 Today I'd love to show you the stunning coordinating cards that belong inside, designed by the lovely Linda.

 Linda has used various embellishments to compliment these gorgeous papers, 
such as this adorable little dragonfly cabochon.

This card is so sweet and is one of my favourites! 
Making cleaver use of the 'Bee Yourself' sentiment, Linda has used a nesting honeycomb die, the bee paper and an adorable metal bee embellishment to create this lovely card. 

Glossy accents, dyed muslin and a fussy cut butterfly are 
perfect accompaniments to the beautiful patterns and verses from this paper range.

This card is a sure winner for the lovers of ferns. 
With a patterned fern background and a statement fern journalling card, what more could you want!

As always, Linda's cards are truly stunning.

Hi lovelies

 It seems like forever since I did a blog post.  
A day or 2 go by and suddenly months have passed.

I wanted to share with you the latest Box and Card class
that was taught by Helen and Linda.

This time these talented ladies chose to use 
Graphic 45's Nature Sketchbook range, and the results were stunning.

Helen created this gorgeous box from an encyclopedia cover.
The lid featured a garden filled butterflies, flowers, branches and leaves.

 While the inside was a little less embellished
it is a perfect accompaniment for Linda's cards.

Till next time.

Sea Gull Box cards.

Hi Lovelies,

This is the second of the boxed cards that have been taught by Linda recently.

This box featured the Couture Creations Sea Breeze papers
and the "Seagulls over the Ocean" die.

This is just truly amazing card. 

The waves are embossed with Stampendeous Sparkle Puff embossing powder.

The seagulls are all hand painted using Tim Holtz Distress Markers. 

There are even some on the back of the card.

I was really lucky that the one that we displayed in store is for me :-)
