Crafty Ribbons Challenge: Ribbon and Buttons

Good morning everyone, hope you are well! I am here with my DT project for our 'Ribbon and Buttons' challenge at Crafty Ribbons Challenge. I altered a notebook block and pencil set I bought a while ago. I used Prima papers, Crafty Ribbons Vintage Butterflies Ribbon and Spotty Buttons, A wooden butterfly embellishment and a gorgeous Vintage image from the graphics fairy.
I covered the inside too, and the pencil to match.
I used more ribbon to embellish the end.

Goldstone Fusion Bracelet and Cat Card

Good afternoon everyone, hope you are well :-) I am here with a couple of projects to show you :-) First of all I will start with a bracelet I made with some of my favourite beads. I love Goldstone and Blue Goldstone and just came across these wonderful fusion of both in little 6mm beads-a perfect bridge to tie my Gold and Blue Goldstone beads together! :-) I used a magnetic clasp, clear bicones, Goldstone 8mm beads, Fusion beads 6mm, and Faceted Blue Goldstone 8mm beads.

Next is a card I made, I drew the cats myself so it took me a while longer than a usual card! 
I drew one then traced it onto a fresh sheet of card, and flipped it to make sure each cat was symmetrical. I then coloured them with black promarkers to make them silhouettes. I paired these with Sarah Hurley 'Be Mine' papers, black and blue cardstock, jewelled embellishments and a sentiment I printed from serif software.

A Little Bit Crafty: Are we there yet? Midway Inspiration

Good morning everyone, hope you are well :-) I am here with a midway inspiration project for our 'Are we there yet?' challenge at A little Bit Crafty. I used Papermania All Aboard collection of papers and embellishments, a sentiment stamp and a canvas butterfly I made. I used a photo of a cat sleeping in a historical monument from an old holiday album and stamped an 'Enjoy the moment' sentiment in Stazon ink onto the All Aboard ribbon. I matted the photo on two colours of cardstock, then created my sketch using other papers from the set. I added a sentiment embellishment to the top of the photo. Lastly I added my butterfly which I made by cutting a butterfly out of canvas with a spellbinders die, colouring it with Mister Hueys ink and then stamping with stazon inks using a swirl stamp.

Monochrome Iris Card and a Neutral Gemstone Necklace

Good afternoon everyone, hope you are well :-) I am here with a couple of creations to show you this time, a monochrome Iris card and a Neutral Gemstone Necklace. 
I shall start with the card, for this creation I used an Iris stamp from Penny Black stamped with Memento Paris Dusk ink onto die cut cardstock. I then made a panel below this image as a mat-with patterned paper and white cardstock. I then covered my card with a white paper with a blue pattern, and used the same patterned paper from my mat as a border on the card. I then added a dome greeting matted onto patterned paper and white card like the image. Lastly I added a ribbon bow.
I was asked to make a neutral coloured gemstone necklace for a friend so here is my effort. Obviously the beads being gemstones each bead differs which I love-you get such different looks even within the same creation. I used Labradorite, Rutilated Quartz in two sizes, clear bicones and white pearls.

Vintage Butterflies Padded Snap Sunglasses case


Good morning everyone, hope you are well! I am here with my DT project for Crafty Ribbons this challenge which is 'Anything Goes with Ribbon'. Last Summer my favourite snap shut glasses case broke-the snaps were poking through the material and hurting me when I opened the case so I decided to cut the case up and keep the snaps to hopefully upcycle them in a new project. Crafty Ribbons have just released their fab new Vintage butterflies ribbon range so I wanted to make a project with them I would use often as I love them so much!
I had some offcuts of denim so I chose that as the outside of the case as its tough and resilient. I began by cutting out my case (a two long pieces, one for outside and the other of a jersey material for outside. I also cut out a length of cotton batting to pad the case with. I started by sewing on my ribbons to embellish the outside of my case. I then sewed together my case, slipping in the snaps at the last moment then finishing this stitching on a treadle sewing machine as the fabric was too thick to sew on my lovely electric sewing machine!

Sarah Hurley 365 CAS Butterfly card

Good morning everyone, hope you are well :-) I am here with my creation for Sarah Hurley's 365 blog.

A Little Bit Crafty: Are we there yet?

Good morning everyone, hope you are well :-) I am here with my DT project for our 'Are we there yet?' challenge at A little bit Crafty this month. I used a stamp by Woodware which I stamped with Stazon onto watercolour paper. I then coloured with Aquamarkers. I chose Papermania All Aboard papers and used complimenting card to mat with. The 'Bon Voyage' sentiment I cut from one of the sheets of paper. I made the butterfly embellishments myself by cutting them out of canvas with the X-cut butterfly dies, then I coloured them with Mister Hueys spray inks, then lastly stamped the pattern on with Stazon. I really like the texture and vibrancy of the canvas and the inks.
