Winters Frost and Warm Hugs

A lot has happened over the past few months, I became a grandma, my computer died and it seems to have taken me forever to get myself set up again, and of course Christmas and New Year!

It was truly nice to get my design hat on and create something for The Studio’s co-ordinated collection. The sad thing is, I will most likely not manage anything else before my vacation. I am going away for just over 3 weeks visiting Vietnam, Laos and hopefully Cambodia.

Anyway… want to see what I have for you Smile

Winters Frost and Warm Hugs.

The Elements

The Papers

The Alpha

The Clusters

and The Storyboard Journal Cards

and NOW at The Studio you are able to purchase the full collection in one go!

Winters Frost and Warm Hugs Collection $15.00 $5.00

Want to see what pretty layouts have been created Smile

A Trio Of Boxes

Recently I have made many birthday cards and decorated a few hybrid projects. Most people who know me well, will know I have a HUGE love of decorating boxes and wooden items with digital papers. A few weeks ago whilst purchasing a few items on a well known craft shopping channel (getting my craft fix) I did a bit of scouting on the internet and found a set of boxes that I could not resist!  I love it when I find boxes that I don’t already have in my stash! These little boxes are only 8cm squared, but they sit in a dinky little tray… well how could I resist that… so I bought 3!

These came from a website called Crafty Computer Paper and are extremely good value for money.

a1

So far I have decorated two of these boxes, here is a show and tell using Valentina’s Creations Tra Sogno e Terra (Collection) which is beautifully vintage.

After removing the hinges, I painted all the edges of the boxes and tray with green acrylic paint, but the green was not quite what I was looking for, I wanted the box to look Shabby chic/vintage and decided to try and give the green that verdigris look so added Tim Holts vintage photo ink to it and then a bit of bronze metallic ink to give it that special patina look. I sealed the boxes and paint work with watered down pva glue.

1

Whilst I left the boxes and tray to dry, I printed off my papers on high quality matte photo paper, cut them out and inked all the edges.

2

I used a high quality pva glue to adhere to the boxes and tray!

3

The finished project is awesome!

jacqs-box

My second box was decorated using Digital Scrapbook kit Babushka by LouCee Creations

The edges were painted black on this box set, I wanted that traditional barge painting look that you see on many narrow boats on the canals and waterways in the UK.

vics-box

Decorating boxes is relatively easy if you have simple shapes to begin with, and the finished project is always outstanding what ever scrapbook kit you decide to work with! Both of these boxes have new homes to go to. They will be filled with all things crafty from gems, to charms to brads!

The third box will be mine! Smile

Have a good day!

Old Post Cards, Golden Days and Freebie

I love old postcards, we have many local antique shops where I live and it is always nice to scout through them. I even buy a few from time to time..

postcards

An old postcard can become more than just a postcard if it has a special meaning to you personally, you may know a person in the photograph, it may be a holiday resort you used to go to with your parents, it may be a landmark you recognise or maybe the town you live in.

My husband, Pete, likes to collect old items that are from Codnor Park, the village we live in, we often get Ebay packages through the post and I often wonder “oh my lordy, what he has bought now”.  A few weeks ago he bought a 100 year old £1 Co-op coin/token that had the village name minted on it, He went to collect this personally from the chap he bought it from as he was reasonably local.

He sat and had an interesting chat with this guy, who had a huge collection of memorabilia from our surrounding area. He brought out a postcard book for Pete to view, this book was large and heavy and marked with the letter C. Imagine Pete’s surprise when he saw our very own home on one of these 110 year old postcards! Unfortunately this was part of the guys collection and not for sale, but he was happy enough to scan it for us.

We are now a proud owner of an old photo of our home in 1904! (just after it was built) how exciting.

This is our house here..

b

Here is the old postcard side by side to a photograph I took yesterday, there are a lot of changes now, like more trees, a tarmac road and houses all around us, but the original houses still look relatively the same!

myhome

Aaah, Golden Memories!

Which smoothly brings me on to my latest kit which is now in store at Pickleberrypop and The Studio.

Golden Days, is an Autumnal kit, but I also found it perfect for old photo’s and made a time line with the old postcard of our home! This kit has the cutest foxes and owl and gorgeous paper flowers which I handmade for the kit. It has mosaic tiles which were crunching underneath my husbands feet, whilst on a local walk, he bought a few home with him, and I instantly scanned them, I like it when Pete finds unusual things!

Golden Days has 18 papers and 55 elements. It’s on sale for $7.00, but this week you get 40% off and can purchase the kit for just $4.20.

Here are some pretty layouts for inspiration.
