So the other week I ordered a stack of 5 boxes to decorate after having an obsessive idea in my head of what I want for our NEC stand in November 2012.
Anyway, after them FINALLY arriving, I had a play today and this is what I came up with:
Papers used are from our brand new CD 'The Elegance Collection' and the Chandelier stamp is also part of the same collection. I used some paper lace from our Cuttables (Vol 1) CD, some trusty 'Walnut Stain' distress ink, my favourite Scalloped & Circular Nestabilities, a fair few buttons, ribbon lengths & flowers and a sprinkle of glamourdust!
The massive flower is made using our 'Shaped Flower' from Cuttables Vol. 2 resized & layered multiple times - coloured in the pro-marker 'Henna' .
I don't think I'll be able to part with them after the NEC so they'll probably find a home by the fire place - Now to pluck up the courage to pack them away in the NEC box... wish me luck!
See you soon,
PS. Sorry for the poor photos - the lighting isn't great right now but excitement got the better of me! Also, the glue on the top flower isn't quite dry so it's still a little white!
Well I've been slacking (again!) in posting all the beautiful cards that our design team have made so I'm going to post the pictures and if you click on them, they'll link to the original post on our talented teams blog!
Well, today we had the surprise of these beautiful cards coming our way:
Jayne has made these using our 'Summer with Roses' stamp and 'Forever Florals' backing papers - aren't they gorgeous?
The inside uses our 'Flower Tree' and 'Friendship Sentiment' stamp too - we've never had a book like this made for us before but it really is stunning!
Jayne has also made this card with our 'Watering Can' stamp and various papers from 'Forever Florals'!
You can view Jaynes blog HERE and read the lovely write-up that she's written about the cards!
Last night, I had to finish off the last of Daisy's Jewels & Crafts samples and the only remaining stamp to use was 'House of Birds'!
So, here's what I came up with, using an unlikely combination of colours - I hope you like it.
I've always been a fan of tags, especially in the beginning of Dreamees, and thought I'd revisit the roots (so to speak!).
Products used are:
'Back to Basics' CD Rom (Backing Papers)
'Cuttables 2' CD Rom (Hinge, Butterflies, Swirls)
'Cuttables' CD Rom (Heart Doily, Swirls)
'House of Birds' Stamp
So, today one of the newest members to our design team (Doreen) has uploaded pictures of her first Dreamees project and the only word that springs to mind to describe it is stunning!
You can find Doreens blog down the right hand side of this page or simply click HERE!
This card was made using papers from 'Forever Florals' Double CD (£14.99!) and 'Summer with Roses' Polymer Stamp (£2.75).
Embellishments (eg. Butterflies, Swirls & Bunting) taken from 'Cuttables Vol. 2' - Our CraftROBO & Silhouette compatible CD Rom! - (£6.00!)
As most of you know, we're off to Coventry on the 17th of March for a daywith Daisy;s Jewels & Crafts (Unit A, Bryant Road, Exhall, Coventry, CV7 9EN) and we've been packing up lots of products for the past week!
Well, the products have been packed and now it's time for the samples - here's some that we've been making!
More to come soon - I've not had chance to take pictures of some!
