Hi folks. I got a new tag set and they are very large , ideal to make a card with. I folded my card stock and laid the die off the edge (so it would not cut).

Then i added some die cut leaf spray , pearls and twig sticks ! To the bottom of the card i added lace and to the centre top I added a beautiful gem.Thanks for stopping by xx

Up cycled

 Hi everyone, I had a clear perspex box that contained chocolates. I decided to make it into a box frame. First i measured car and paper to fit. I used plain card and Lemoncraft papers (Heart Painted). After attaching my lace I added a tree (painted lightly). On top of this i placed my photo (hidden)and framed it with an air dry frame (made myself with a mould). The cabbage  roses I added are so pretty ! To complete I added a jewel.The frame i then glued all around the edges then placed on top of the card. The reflection from the perspex is making it hard to take good photos so I hope you can see it clearly enough. I still have the other half of the box to use so I will make used of it soon !Thanks for stopping by xx
