Have been neglecting the blog this month - not good at all. My only excuse is that I have been busy loading all of Denise Ann's fabulous new Couture Collection of papers onto the websites - there are 12 papers in shades of pinks, apricots & greens along with 2 cardmakers packs. The papers are at the printer & I am hoping they will be ready by the weekend so that I can play.
There are also 2 other new Cardmakers packs - The Ann Rose & The French Bird Houses.

Remember the Magical Fairy Dust

 Pic #1 shows a manila tag used on a pale pink cardstock background with an overlay of 1 of the papers from the French Garden papers & a 'remember tag'. The manila tag is embellished with lace, pearls, ribbons & an open pink & white paper flower. The remember tag is distressed & embellished with 1 of the images from the Fairyland paper; a pin of jewels is added with a pink tassel & ribbon as well as a bottle (size#1) with glitter to represent the magical fairy dust. Distress ink used Victorian Velvet.

There are several sizes & shapes in the glass bottle collection on the web site under the category 'Embellish It!'. There make an unique embellishment - add sand, gold flitter, a rolled message, a lock of hair & more ....


Pic #2 shows a manila tag distressed with Frayed Burlap, embellished with ribbons, an off white open paper rose & 2 copper leaves - both of these also distressed with frayed burlap. A pin of jewels is added to the 'Discover tag' which is lightly distressed & is mounted on a scrap of matching paper. The phrase of 'Live in the Moment' is torn & distressed & a clock charm added to finish the project.

Listen to your Heart
Pic #3 uses lilac cardstock with a piece of the Garden of Blue Flowers embellished with double sided lavender ribbon & pearls with an open lavender & cream open flower rose. The Love tag is emebellished with 1 of the images from ATC#035 Vintage French Couples. Distress ink is lavender.

All elements in the above pics are foam mounted.
The next projects will be using the new Couture Collection
Bye for now
