Sleeping Beauty

I took part in the My Creative Spirit Facebook Live Class No. 25, it was about four weeks ago and it has taken me a while to complete the project.  It is a Layered Box Album and it is rather large - just over 10" x 8" x 2 1/2" when closed and quite difficult to photograph, I have not done it justice.


Above the album is closed, it is secured with magnets and below it is fully opened out, there are four pages and they get slightly larger as you go through and as they are mounted on the sides of the box they splay out as it is opened.


The following photographs show the flaps as they are opened out, I love the Stamperia Sleeping Beauty papers so much that I could not bring myself to cover them up with any of the additional flaps and pockets that Clare showed us how to make.




Below you can see a buckle closure, it holds the centre four flaps closed and there is lots of room for expansion if you wish to add photographs or embellishments.




I really enjoyed creating this album, it took me a while and like I said the photographs do not do it justice but I love it.

Beauty is Power

I have been taking part in another Facebook Live Workshop with Clare from My Creative Spirit this weekend, we are creating a Sliding Box and Album.  I am using the Stamperia Hortensia collection to decorate mine and decided to take some time out to create a card.


I used two papers from the 8 x 8 paper pad along with several fussy cut pieces from the 12 x 12 paper pad, the doily is a Dress My Craft die cut and the sentiment is also from the Stamperia collection, I wrapped it with some twine that I secured with a bow.

Thankful

This is another card that I have created using a Kelly Purkey card kit from 2012/2013, I am desperately trying to use up some of my old stash.  I need to make some space in my craft room, especially as it is Crafter's Companion's 16th Birthday week, have you seen all of the fabulous new launches!


For this one I have used three of the patterned papers and two of the solid papers from the 6 x 6 Basic Grey Persimmon paper pad that was in the kit.  I stamped a sentiment that was also in the kit and cut it out with my Die-namics Fishtail Flag die, I placed a couple of tags from the kit in the little pocket that I created and added a sticker and some gems.

Seasons may change ...

I have created this shaped easel card using a topper and papers from the Hunkydory Autumn Days collection, I often find it difficult to use the toppers these days, I think it is all of the gold on them!


I fussy cut a sentiment from another topper and used it as the stopper for the easel and added a fussy cut butterfly and bow, the sentiment reads "Seasons may change but our Friendship remains", I thought it was really nice.

Be the Sunshine

I have been using up some more very old stash again, this is a Kelly Purkey card kit, I think it is from 2012/2013 like the Simon Says Stamp one that I previously used.


I have used three of the patterned papers and two of the solid papers from the 6 x 6 Basic Grey Persimmon paper pad that was part of the kit.  I stamped a Crafter's Companion sentiment on the reverse of one of the Journal cards and added a die cut flower and a couple of fishtail flags.


Thank you for popping in today and thank you for all of the lovely comments that you leave, they are all read and much appreciated.

Loveliest Smile

This is another card that I have created with the Hunkydory Autumn Days collection, this time I have used a topper from the Luxury Topper Collection.


I used one of the papers from the 8 x 8 paper pad along with some gold Mirri card stock, I cut an additional border from the papers so that I could add it to the bottom as well as the top.  I added a sentiment from the topper collection and fussy cut an additional bow so that I could layer it up.

Christmas Fun

I have used my Gemini Slimline Aperture Cut and Emboss Folder to create a shaker card, these cut and emboss folders make creating shaker cards so easy.


I have used papers and die cuts from the Watercolour Christmas collection by Sara Davies along with some of the Chunky Glitter that is also from the collection.
