How about some Boutique Chic ..

Thanks for stopping by again ... today I have some of my samples from the Boutique Chic collection to share with you.

This is also now available on the Hunkydory website here. Alongside the main kit, there is a gorgeous paper pad, matching inserts, book of matching foiled card and foiled acetate. Stunning collection!

Here are a few of the samples I made ..

This was one of my fave images, the dog on the scooter, so cute! And I am loving DL cards at the moment ...

Here is another DL card with one of the toppers attached with some folded acetate to create a spring. I have also decoupaged the banners using one of the sheets from the paper pad ..

This is the purse, which you can make with one of the elements of the paperkit .. 

And these are the cards I made to go inside ..

Until next time ...

More Fun In The Sun...

With the lovely weather we have been having, this collection is perfect for those special occasions in these summery months!

Here are a few more of my samples from the launch, click here to purchase from the online Hunkydory store .. in addition to the kit, there are of course matching inserts and a co-ordinating Little Book of Decoupage .. what are you waiting for?

I used a bit Summer Breeze foiled acetate on this one, also available online.

I used some embossed Adorable Scorable on this next card, it embosses beautifully!

Using another pattern from the Summer Breeze foiled acetate ..

I have really started to enjoy using acetate on my cards, it just adds that something extra, either over cardstock or cut away panels and replace with acetate. Patterned and plain acetates are both available on the Hunkydory website!

Pop back tomorrow for some Boutique Chic inspiration!

My Fair Lady

One of my favourite musicals and one the parts I would most like to play - Eliza Doolittle! And Hunkydory have brought out a kit called My Fair Lady, reminiscent of some of the fabulous costumes that Audrey Hepburn dons in that fabulous film!!

I got the kit for half price when I bought it with the new Hunkydory mag and here are a few makes using the lilac toppers/cardstock.

This one is made using some of the toppers and one of the sheets of cardstock, cut down to fit. Finished with silver mirri and some lilac pearl gems.

This one again is made using elements of a couple of the sheets of cardstock along with toppers from the topper sheet, along with some ribbon, silver mirri and lilac pearl gems.

The border at the side is cut from one piece of cardstock with another border from the topper sheet layered over that .. 

This one is made from one of the sheets of cardstock, which had this image on it. I cut the image down and mounted the frame from the topper sheet around it. The background is created with two different shades of Adorable Scorable and then embossed with my trellis embossing folder. I then stuck one of the borders from the topper sheet down the divide to hide it. Finished with some pearl gems, one of the tag toppers + some ribbon and I used silver mirri again for the matt.

Hope you have all had a lovely weekend! Back to it now!

Crafty hugs,

Out of this World!

More Smudge and Mitten for you this morning. I wasn't sure about how this one turned out but I will share anyway, I am sure it will perfect for a little boy's birthday ..

I don't tend to make A5 cards and I know why! I find it really hard to make it look balanced and fill the space. Saying that, I still love these characters, so cute!

So, anyway, here it is ...

I put the matching insert inside too ..

I have always left my insides blank but am getting a bit hooked to inserts, they do just make it look that much better! 

Hope you are all having a fab weekend!

Two by Two - Hunkydory

During my mahoosive craft sesh this week, I also made some cards using the Two by Two kit that comes free with the current issue of the Hunkydory mag - seriously worth getting. The artwork is amazing, it just makes me smile!!

These cards are simple but they don't need much else - in fact the second one is just one half of one the A4 sheets folded in half .. I couldn't bare to cover it up with anything!

How amazing is it! The only extra thing I used was some gold mirri on the top card. Seriously, is worth getting the mag just for this kit, perfect for all those little people with upcoming birthdays!

Happy weekend!
