Hi there, I'm here to share my latest creations which I made for Artfull Crafts. The theme this month at Artfull Crafts is LOVE. So I decided to create with some papers I love. Cosmos Crickets' Odds & Ends range is so gorgeous. I have had it in my stash for a while, just waiting for the perfect project to use it for...as you do!
I got this cute frame that comes with it's own stand from Ikea.
They are only $1.99(AUD) and are a great to decorate to become a
feature. This particular one is for my craft room. it sits on my new
shelving nicely :)
Then it's time to decorate! I made a little banner/bunting & added
inked chipboard alpha (from J.T. Laser cuts) to spell out the
word...Love. I attached the banner to some string & some brads from
my stash. I wanted to keep the decorating simple but stylish so a pretty
doily & a red heart sparklet by Kaisercraft to finish it off.
The really fun thing about this frame is that it is double sided! So
turn it around & decorate it as you please. I can turn it around
depending on my mood...love it!
So, for this side of the frame I used the pretty floral paper from the range, added another doily, a shape cut using the Spellbinders Nestabilities die 'labels one'. A sweet journal tag cut from the paper pack. A sweet little chipboard bird & some buttons & string from my stash.
While I had the bits and pieces out I thought I'd have a play with a new
die I recently purchased. It is so cute, it is made by Quickutz &
they are little file folders. I think they make gorgeous little
journalling or gift tags.
I cut the folders using a cream/buff card stock to make them look a
little more like manilla folders. I inked the edges for definition then
decorated away with some of my favourite things: twine, clips, mini
pegs, bling, brads, dymo labels & tape.
I added some patterned paper as a base which could be attached to a gift, card or page etc.
The idea is to undo the clip or peg etc to reveal a little private note, aren't they just the cutest things!
Thanks for your comments I really appreciate them.
Have a great day!
