Beautiful Vintage Birdbox


I've used a plain bird box that some lovely wine came in to make this decorative box.  I've used First Edition Rose Garden papers, along with some different sized little butterflies and leaves made from Martha Stewart Clay and coloured with inks and shabby pink frantage powder.  Also used my Cricut to cut out little birds and distress inked them.

Many little butterflies cut with Tonic punches adorn this vintage box.

    The pictures  below shows close ups of some of the detail on this lovely box, the ferns are so
     delicate, flecked with gilding wax and pale coloured inks.

A lovely Engagement card I was asked to make recently.  Used a large topper, some lovely delicate flowers, stamens, seed pearls and diamante trim.

Christening for Bella

A Christening card for a little girl made with the same topper as previous post.  Added some cerise pink ribbon and some First Edition papers.

Pink Heart Wedding Card

An 8x8 scalloped card base with First Edition papers, memory box hearts dies and a large topper with lovely pink heart.  I've added the couple's initials to the heart.  Stickles here and there on the topper for added sparkle.

Wedding Card With Lace

A quite clean and simple wedding card made recently.  Linen cardstock in white with lace edged sentiment and pale pink ribbon.

Butterfly hanging

I made this wall hanging a little while ago and didn't blog it so thought I would now. Its made using a kit from Hunkydory.  I layered up butterflies and the sentiment, added a nice pearl drop trim and some pale pink ribbon and a bow, also a diamante embellishment.  Looks much nicer in real life.

Trinket Boxes

I have been making little trinket/blessings boxes recently for family and friends.  Opposite is a small selection of what I have made so far.
 To the right here.............. is a special one I have made for
a close long time friend's mum who has recently lost her husband.  I used some vintage lace, handmade acrylic bow some lovely scalloped paper from a pack I bought at Leigh Craft Show a couple of weeks ago.  The image is one I have had for a long time and use again and again, it's a digital image to which I've added stickles.
The lovely one above is one I made for my Granddaughter,
Elizabeth, its used a Cricut cut file for the birdhouse
and several cut images of birds and hearts.
The little butterflies and leaves etc
are made with my Martha Stewart
Molds and Das air dry clay.
