Made with Love and Birdies

Last week, I took part in a team event with other demos in the wider team that I am part of. The event was based around the Curvy Variety bundle and this was one of the make and take projects that formed part of the event – it’s so pretty!

The leaves are coloured using a technique taught by Pootles, blending the inky outline in an almost watercolour effect, with a glittery sparkle finish. It’s beautiful. Mine is made with Shaded Spruce, Mint Macaron and Soft Suede – which I think look gorgeous together. I’m not sure what colouring I’ve tried to mimic on the birds though..

The little birds on this card are so bloody cute! I sometimes wonder what they’re twittering to one another, just like when you hear birds outside your window.

What do you think they’re saying?

Best Wishes,

Curvy yet Slimline?

Between now and January 4th, there is a bundle available with is part of an early release – but with 2 exclusive additions. I got my hands on the bundle and got playing with it almost immediately and this box is the first thing I made. It’s a good size and without testing the theory, I believe it would one of the larger bars of chocolate such as Galaxy, Aero or Dairy Milk.

The exclusive 6″ x 6″ Designer Series Paper that comes as part of the bundle has three colours – Cherry Cobbler, Sahara Sand and Shaded Spruce, as demonstrated by this box. They are gorgeous colours and will make Christmas crafting so easy!

There are two stamp sets as part of the bundle, one themed around Christmas and is again an exclusive to the this promotion – I paired up my sentiment along side a trail of gorgeous stars.

To finish off the box, I used one of my favourite ribbons – the metallic edged ribbon, this one being the Whisper White & Silver version. I absolutely love it and need to buy more!

Have you got your hands on the Curvy Variety Bundle yet?

Best Wishes,
Suzanne

Joy to the World

Eek! It’s October – how did that happen? The nights are already drawing in and the clocks will change soon also. Most would see that as a negative, but I absolutely love it. I love the run up to the events during this time of year – Halloween, Bonfire Night, Christmas etc. So I thought it was time I cracked out the foil and make some full blown Christmas projects.

Today’s is a slimline pocket pouch, a great size for small bags of sweeties or perhaps small chocs such as Green & Blacks. Ideal for table favours, part of a hamper treat selection or in the stocking on Christmas Eve.

The word ‘joy’ on the front is made from the dies of the same name using two different foils. The dies come with three separate segments to make up the wording, however I chose to only use two for this project.

And of course, I had to break out the Wonder of a Season ribbon combo and do the double ribbon bow tie that I previewed when I first got my initial order from the Autumn / Winter catalogue.

What do you think would fit nicely into this pouch?

Best Wishes,
Suzanne
