Happy Birthday Belinda

A special Happy Birthday to my daughter today.
Hope your day is extra special. Big hugs and love from us both.
 
 
I made a 8x8 canvas instead of a card for Bel this year.
I used linen card and I think the paper is Echo Park, the charm is from My Two angels and I also used Spellbinders Grand Calibur Decorative Ovals and Elizabeth Crafts Happy Birthday die. Finished with flowers and rhinestone flourishes and a metal butterfly.
   
 
After I had made the canvas Dreaming Tree released their latest collection so I just had to make this explosion box as well .
 
 
 
Inside the box

 
The birthday hat is removable and a place for a little secret gift.

 
I think I will be making a few of these, really love it and hope Bel does as well.

Royal Queensland Exhibition 2016

This is the second project which I entered into the Scrapbooking section of this years Royal Queensland Exhibition.
I started with an artist case and stripped out the inside and added timber dividers.
I was given the Prima resin items as a birthday gift.
The flowers on the outside are all handmade using a Spellbinders die and I made a little tag to hang on the handle. The inside is lined with  Prima papers and I have added paper flowers and charms
 
 
 
 
 
 
 

 

 
Thank you for visiting my blog this week.
I hope you have enjoyed seeing my show projects.

The box opens to reveal a gatefold album.
All the tags and panels are removable and have space on the reverse side for photos .
The middle panel of each page is magnetised and also have areas for photos  
The papers are Kaisercraft A Touch of Gold and I was lucky enough to source  the embellishments, which were almost a perfect match were from a local chain store.

Prima/Julie Nutting Doll Stamp Calendar

Some time ago I was involved in a calendar swap on the Craft Mad  forum.
We all swapped a calendar with our partner and I was fortunate to be partnered with the lovely Mandy who sent me a calendar with a lovely verse on a decorated panel for each month of the year.
I am in love with the Julie Nutting doll stamps so I decided to make a new calendar and incorporate the verses and the stamps.
 
Today I would like to share my May page with you.

Craft Mad Monthly Swap

Our theme for the Craft Mad Monthly Swap for June was to case two cards from the gallery.
My second card was a copy of one made by Jan.
I used a Swiss dots background, Memory Crafts Poppy die, Spellbinders tag and rhinestones with a Sticker Store greeting.   
 
 
This was Jan's original card .


I loved the clean lines and simplicity of this one.

Craft Mad Monthly Swap

 Our theme for the Craft Mad Monthly Swap for June was to case two cards from the gallery.
I chose my first card from one made by Ruth . I turned the pattern on the side and used papers from my stash and a Petaloo flower and Elizabeth Crafts greeting die
 
Sorry I couldn't get a better photo of Ruths card but it is perfect in every way.
