A mini box unit!

Good Morning!

Well I have a lovely project to show you today - something that's still upcoming for Dreamees!

I've been really into making MDF projects and this is something that I couldn't find ANYWHERE - so, I decided to just make my own (template and all...!)

AND, it has inspired a whole CD jam packed with templates and gorgeous accessories to make projects like this for low-cost - I did make this out of card from a box that we had a parcel delivered in (I think it was the box our stamp materials arrived in...) which has worked fantastically.

I have tried the project out of kraft card (300gsm) and plain white card (300gsm) which has worked a treat too - it does allow you more 'wiggle' if you use normal cardstock.

Here's the finished project:

I used die-cuts from our CD Cuttables 2 and Cuttables 3 - designed for any GSD cutter (eg. CraftROBO or Silhouette Cameo) - these include the lock & key, the sprigs in the flower cluster, the butterflies, corners, mannequin and cogs.

Stamps used to give a pattern to things such as the dress are our Script stamp (along with on the frame itself) and I also used our stamp set Cogs/Pocket Watch for in the left section (LOVE the sentiment!)

OH, and the 'Perfect Day' sentiment in the middle bottom section is a snippet of the sentiment in our Teacup stamp set!

I used our Hot Air Balloon stamps to make the flower in the middle top section - video tutorial of how this can be done is available free HERE

All papers and paper embellishments (eg. the flowers in the lower corner, the ticket and word sentiments, the calendars in the middle section) are from our brand new Gorgeous Girls CD

I also used my favorite Ranger Rock Candy glitter and the gorgeous Light Bulb (which I'm sure is either a Ranger or Tim Holtz product!)

If I've missed any of the parts you'd like to know about, do leave me a comment or ask us on facebook and I'm more than happy to let you know :-)

Have a wonderful Bank Holiday Monday!

I'll see you soon,

Bloomin Lavender

Today i have a card to show you that i made using the Bloomin Bright CD.
Everything on this card was made purely using the Bloomin Bright CD and some white card, so you really can get everything you need from just the CD. It's so packed full of images such fav value for money. All the elements on my card were from the Lavender Themed section of the cd. It has everything that coordinates under this section, so you can match up all the colours and elements perfectly. I used the Lavender Topper, Papers, Hexagon Border, Sentiments & Bow!

You can grab the Bloomin Brights CD here, on offer for only £9.99 too, bargain!

Thanks for stopping by today :)

A flower tutorial...!

Hello again,

I'm doing well - Twice in one week!!

I've just put together our weekly newsletter which you can view online HERE and I decided to show you what we use our new flower stamp set for!

The stamp set is £3.00 and looks like this:

First Tutorial

Right, so firstly I tend to use three of the same size flower (these have been cut out leaving a white border and then distressed with Gathered Twigs distress ink - I've also stamped our Script stamp onto the petals.

Keep one flat, trim into the centre of one (between any two petals - not between all the petals) and then cut one petal out of the final one.

Gently curve the petals of the first flower downward to give some shape. On the second and third flower, overlap the two petals either side of the cut (whether it be a simple slit or a petal taken out) to create three layers pictured below:

Then, simply layer them up, left to right and you'll create a gorgeous flower like this

Obviously it could do with a button, pearl or brad in the centre to embellish.

Second Tutorial

My second favorite way to use these flowers is to create a poinsettia. I've cut out three of the flowers ( 2x largest & 1 x medium size flower) and cut them right to the black line.

I've coloured each of the flowers in red, except one of the largest I've coloured the tips of every other petal in green. I simply used promarkers.

Curve the petals downwards again and layer them up left to right, offset slightly.

Finally, add a gem in the centre!

PS. PLEASE EXCUSE MY CUTTING - it was done very quick and is shamefully bad haha!

Third Tutorial

This one is just a basic layering up of the three sizes - I've just cut them out with a white edge and distressed them slightly with Gathered Twigs Distress Ink:

Hope this inspires you to use our Flower stamps!!

Have a wonderful day,

Hayley xx

New Stamp Collection

Wow, It's been a while since I posted on the blog.
Here are a couple of makes with our new products:
Birdhouse stamp
Alphabet stamp set
Teacup stamp set
Gorgeous Girls CD

All papers and accessories are from the Gorgeous Girls CD - all new products (6 new stamps and 1 CD) will be available from Friday the 17th of May, I hope you like the look of them!!

Here's the first one made with Birdhouse and the Alphabet stamp set:

I also used our best selling Script stamp on the lined paper (across the middle of the card) - I distressed a circle of pink lined backing paper and stamped the house onto it, then paper pieced the heart and coloured in the scallops with a pink promarker.
The large white flower on the left is on the new CD and the others are cherry blossom/tea roses which are shop bought.
Our alphabet set contains 64 stamps (upper case, lower case, numbers & two shapes) and I cut up the individual letters to spell 'Home' on my picket sign (also from the new CD)

I added liquid pearls (White Opal) around the entire edge of the birdhouse topper.
Hope you like it!!

And here's my second creation using our Teacup stamp set:

Again, the paper flowers are from the new CD 'Gorgeous Girls' as is the gorgeous calendar (I drew a heart around my birthday for this one!) - the cute sentiment comes with the Teacup stamp and that set is £3.00.

I used to Tim Holtz Rock Candy to add some sparkle around the edge of the topper circle, to the roses on the left and to my topper too. Absolutely LOVE using it - its such a unique glitter!

Images were taken on instagram so I'll be adding better ones to our facebook page when the daylight comes back around!

See you again soon,

Hayley xx
