About time for an update don't you think? Like most people I am busy working full time and desperately trying to find time to craft.
I would like to share with you some items from the new Share What You Love suite that is currently available as bundles until 31st May, but all will be available to order individually from 1st June (when the new annual catalogue goes live!).
The papers in this suite are simply gorgeous and some have a pearlescent sheen to them. They come in a pack of 24, so there is plenty of it, unless you are like me and used 2 packs already! I have also used a stamp set called Love What You Do which is featured in this suite.
My theme is Gifts for a Friend (or friends). I do like making cards, but I also like to make little 3d objects to give as presents. I am always picking things up when I am shopping with a view to producing something at a later date. This was the case with the photo frame in the picture below, which I picked up from Wilkinsons (£3).
The frame already had a distressed finish, so it didn't need much else and I simply cut a piece of the paper to size to put in the frame. The die cut leaves I have used to highlight my sentiment are from a current set of framelits called ' Bouquet Bunch', these will be carrying on to the new catalogue. I have used these throughout my project to keep the theming the same.
Along with this I covered a mini A5 clipboard, which was trickier than I thought it would be. Fortunately, and I strongly advise this, make a template before cutting. I am pleased how this turned out, and covering a bundle of natural wood pencils looks pretty cute.
Ok, so my last gifts were a couple of bars of chocolate which I made sure the wrappers coordinated with the Share What You Love papers. I think these two match fantastically. And finally, a mini bottle of coordinating wine!
I hope you have enjoyed my projects today, here is a final picture of everything together.
I hope you pop back again soon to see more creative projects.
