Creative Team - NEW Glam Kit Project!

Dear Crafty Friends,

Today I'm EXCITED to share the latest kit from Studio IlustradoGlam Kit
I was looking forward to use this kit as there are so many beautiful paper patterns and elements to choose from. This kits' theme and variety would be fabulous for any party!

I used the following files from Studio Ilustrado to display the NEW KIT!
I created a quick 'To do list' to keep a record of what had to be done. I love the patterned paper I used on the edge of the list - the flowers are gorgeous and can also be used to make invitations to match the treat bag.
I used one of the label elements and the sparkly gold numbers and made cards for the table which can be left standing on their own or attached to a thin dowel. There are even letters so name cards could also be made.
I loved all the patterned paper so I had to use a combination of the stripes and dots to make the cute birthday cake treat boxes.
 There are so many beautiful elements in this kit (60) - I wish I could use them all - the variety of choice is excellent.

Thank you for visiting today! 
Happy Crafting!

Butterflies will fly!

Hello my crafty friends,

Today I'm sharing my latest creative team project for Studio Ilustrado. This file can be found in the Silhouette Design Store or on their website.

Butterflies Card - Studio Ilustrado
I chose my colours and patterned paper and worked on my two cards. I really loved this file as it had so much detail to cut on the butterflies as well as easy to put together.

On the blue card I decided to make the outer butterflies with vellum so you could still see the patterned paper underneath. For the pink card I kept the paper plain with the dots and added some Wink of Stella to give the card a little bit of sparkle, and added some green coloured pearls!

Please visit Studio Ilustrado for more of their great designs which include cut files, digital paper and a few freebies too!

Exciting Design Team News!

Hello Friends,

Recently Bird from Birds SVGs put out a Design Team call and I am THRILLED to let you know that I am one of the lucky Designers to be chosen to join her team. You can meet the rest of the team up on Birds blog.

For my first project I used the following files from the Roses are Pink set. 

I decided to go with a gold, beige and brown colour palette and put my own touch to it.

I used rose patterned paper for the oval box and the 'leaves' of the card, a gold and clear acetate sheet for the card envelope and a mixture of patterned beige and brown paper for the rest of the designs. I added a bit of subtle 'bling' using some sparkly enamel dots.

And finally I was going to add some candy to the box but I ended up making some coconut sugar cookies and thought they'd be perfect to go in the box to give to my neighbour!
(We are enjoying the left over cookies too ... yum!)

I'm thinking this would be a great hostess gift for any occasion - so quick and easy to put together!

If you haven't already visited Birds site it's definitely worthwhile - she has created beautiful themed collections and also has some fabulous freebies too if you'd like to try before you buy. You can mix and match her files to suit your theme. 

Thank you for visiting today!
Happy Crafting!
