Photo clock

Good evening/Morning crafters 

This is a photo clock which I made 

I transferred photo of my grand daughter using mod podge & then used imagination crafts products around the edges.

Butterflies are crystal stickers.
It's so much more stunning in real life especially the starlight paints 

It was all mounted on a circle mdf board & clock mechanism inserted in the middle once finished 

A keepsake of my beautiful granddaughter xx

Have a lovely weekend 



Vintage mixed media cheese board

Good evening 

I've just finished this beautiful project using a cheese board from imagination crafts.

I used imagination crafts rice papers, stencils, texture paste & white & black gesso 

Distress inks was used around the edges & bow was from my stash ..

I cut pieces out of the rice paper & mounted it onto white cardstock 

Fallen in love with this one 

I hope you enjoy is as much as I do

Lots of love

Quilted background tutorial

Good evening! 

I made this card using Hunkydory stamps. The background I did myself after watching Katherine from hochanda do it.  It looks quilted and it's so effective.  Unfortunately I can't find the show on where she did it so will explain how it's done here. 

I used 6" by 6" card.  You can use any card & any colours you want.  

1.  Score from corner to corner on both sides of the card.  

2.  From each corner score 4 cm apart to create the diamonds,  carry on scoring every 4cm until edge of the card.   You can use any size card you want to, doesn't have to be 6x6. 

3.  For the template use another 6x6 card & carry out steps above . 

4.  On the card template cut as shown in the photograph.  You will use this on each diamond at the bottom 2 sides , distress using your ink & blending tool against the template and a little onto the diamond. 

5.  Use any colour even multi colours it will look as good whatever you do.  My tutorial photos are not as neat as I would like but will touch it up later.

I hope you find this easy to follow, if not please ask me any questions you like,  I'll do my best to answer.  I'll try finding the show Katherine did it in too

Have a lovely evening
