Something Different

Haven't been blogging for a while, but now am back with a something different. I have got a nest of  plain boxes from the do craft range and have decorated them using Paper mania Jesse Edwards hampstead papers. These papers are a linen paper and feel gorgeous and are really easy to co-ordinate. I trimmed the box lid with some cotton lace and for the topper I used my sd silhouette machine to cut the artisan shapes and letters. The butterflies were punched using the do crafts dimension punch and the leaves using an ek punch and the rose is from my stash. Also i distressed the paper edges with Tim holtz tea dye distress ink. To finish it off i popped in some miniature toiletries.

I made this box for my sister and she loves it

Silhouette Machine

Thought I would give Tilda a break, especially now that my pre-ordered ones are not coming. So here's a quick card using my silhouette sd machine. I downloaded the design which is from the silhouette website and cut it on plain white card. Then I inked the base card with Tim Holt's vintage photo, for the first layer and the flower and stem I used  colour box cats eye pigment inks which complement each other lovely. I then just popped a little button from paper mania capsule collection in the centre of my flower. The Stamped sentiment is from penny black.
