Desk Calendar

Hiya, another post from me, since I can't sleep, I've a hot milky drink in one hand and typing this up with the other! Here is an easy to make little desk calender I created...
My Project 
Products Used 
Trimcraft 
Laura Ashley - Backing Paper
First Edition - Flowers and Foliage dies
Dovecraft - Gems, Brads and Glitter card
Bazzil - Bling card

From my stash - Green satin card, White satin card and Lace ribbon

First of all I took an A4 white satin sheet of card from my stash and scored as shown here on my Hougie board, then folded to create DL shape ...



I layered together pink bazzil card with gorgeous Laura Ashley paper, adding lace ribbon border then attached to card. The calendar I placed on green card and placed as shown. I then added flower embellishments that I made from die cut pink bazzil, green and glitter card, with brads and gems to finish.

Quick Cards Issue 167 - Sketch Challenge Reader DT

Back again, this time with a card I made a few months ago whilst being on Quick Cards Reader DT for their Sketch Challenge in Issue 167. Here is my take on the sketch....
My Project 

Sketch 

Products Used 
Trimcraft - Dovecraft 8x8 'Couture du Jour' and 'Painted Blooms' papers, Pearl gems, Glitter card, Butterfly and Sentiment dies, Lace ribbon
Creata - Mirror card
Britannia - Leaf die
Various paper flowers from my stash

I created this on a 7x7 card blank, shaping corners and using a combination of Dovecraft papers along with Creata mirror card. Instead of circles I decided to use flowers to spill out of envelope with added floating die cut butterflies. Finishing off with lace border and die cut sentiment.
