Tags Duo - Couture Creations

Hi all, 

I was sitting at my desk today and looked at these gorgeous wings I had die cut and knew I wanted to create a tag.  I made two tags instead just because I loved the collections so much.. 




Tag One - Keep Memories Safe In Your Heart.

Isn't this pretty. 
I cut two straight tags, one pattern and one plain to adhere underneath to strengthen it.
I die cut the wings and inked around the edges to highlight how pretty they are. 
After stamping the heart I fussy cut it and placed a brad in the centre cog and the top of the wings. 
I placed two foam squares on top of the heart then adhered that to the tag. 


I placed a scrap strip on the tag and added a die cut key from the Straight Tags set with the heart popped up on a foam square. I die cut the cogs and placed them as shown. I love the little dragonfly so stamped the second generation shadow on the tag. I then stamped over the shadow with the outline of the dragonfly. I thought it need more so stamped the outline on scrap paper and fussy cut and popped it up with the wings lifted. Stamping the quote from the Steampunk Sentiments Stamp set and popping it up on Foam squares made this tag I think.. I used Premium Adhesive gems and pearls to finish it all off.


Tag Two - Live Your Dreams

Again using scraps from the My Secret Love Collection I cut the Straight Tag and inked around the edges. Now I just purchased these gorgeous Layered Trilliums dies from the Peaceful Peonies Collection and I love them.. I die cut two sets as shown but left the back off the bottom flower and adhered these over several Open Branch leaves from the Lest We Forget Collection. I again did the same with the dragonfly as above and die cut and fussy cut the butterflies from the Butterfly Flourish mini die. Stamping Live Your Dreams from the Steampunk Sentiments Stamp set and popping it up with foam squares was perfect.. Gems and pearls from Couture Creations finishes the tags off nicely. 


Love these flowers and dragonfly.


The two tags together. Don't they look gorgeous..


I love how the wings open with the Keep Memories Safe In Your Heart Tag.
btw.. that is the last of my papers from the My Secret Love Collection you see on the bottom.
mmm, I wonder if I can get another tag from it lol


Yah I did get another tag from the left overs.
Adore this stamp which I stamped twice and fussy cut.. 


They do look wonderful don't they..


I hope I have inspired you 
to create glorious things.

My Take on Wendy keep Sake Box Challenge -AVSC -NSD

Hi all,

Finally I made Wendy's keepsake Box for the Aunty Veras Scrap and Craft  NSD challenge..
Thank you Wendy for the tutorial which you can find here.
p.s I will be making the journals to go into it later as I love how she created the spine.


The box is made now for the fun stuff decorating..


I love this piece of paper but wanted to make a shaker card for the front of the box so I cut the middle bit out and used the frame as the shaker.


I stamped and die cut the sun flowers from Heartfelt Creations and after shaping them glued tiny beads in the middles.


The shaker card made for the front. I followed Sue's challenge here when I made my journal and called it 'It's all about me'..
One of my favourite things is butterflies. I love them all.


The box with the lid off and by the way I love how Wendy designed the lid..




The journal and Keepsake Box ...


I couldn't find a handle so created one out of paper and believe or not a sample of wall paper.
I sewed around the handle to give it strength..


Sue's  Challenge you can see that here was to create a album all about you..


Journal opened from the front..


I hope I have inspired you
to create glorious things.

Do You Remember - Sue's Challenge for NSD May AVSC

Hi all,

Over on Aunty Vera Scrap and Craft AVSC there is a challenge the Creative Team has going to 
celebrate National Scrapbooking Day NSD which is all of May.

You can find Sue's project HERE


I love this idea of making a journal all about ME.. Sounds conceited I know but when I'm really old my kids can look back on this and say oh I remember mum doing that or liking that so I think it is a great thing..  I am going to make Wendy's project as well so follow along with me to place this album in. I guess that is two projects rolled into one lol.

I chose this box to start with as it has a large spine.. (and my daughter ate all the bikkies, not me lol).
The paper is from Bo Bunny and is called Country Garden which is one of my favourites. I guess that is why I chose it lol.


The finished cover. I created a shaker front with Count Your Blessing. Butterflies are another favourite thing of mine..


The opened journal from the front.


The journal from inside. I stitched all around the edges and along both sides of the spine to reinforce the strength.. I added washie tape from Aunty Vera's which I love..


I made three signatures and again reinforced the spine ..


 This album is going to be all about me so 
I wrote a list of things I am going to include in this so I am going to be a busy girl indeed..


I love how this turned out and will be very busy finishing this album..
