CC & Beatrix Potter are off to Germany!

Hello Everyone, hope you are all well on this gorgeous sunny weekend! OMG we have had 2 days of sunshine!!!
Crafter's Companion are launching a range of Beatrix Potter products over in Germany in the next few weeks and the Design Team were asked to make some samples! So here goes, I have made these using the Beatrix Potter Papercrafting Elements.
My first sample is a gift box with Candles in. I have used Centura Pearl Card Stock and one of the Female Beatrix Potter Embossing Folders to make the box. Next I decorated it with Ribbon and Gems from the Embellishment Kits and then added one of the Die'sire Dies - Waltz Frame. Finally put on one of the fantastic Rub Ons and some little butterflies from my stash!

The candles have been decorated with some of the Rub Ons - very easy to do and very effective to give as a gift!

Next is a Stepper Card. I made this using one of the Card Blanks by cutting it in half and the greeting says "Happy Birthday". I have used So Mod Core'dinations with the Embossalicious Folder - Florabunda and Die'sire Lace Border 3 & Ornamental Flower Frame. Lots of Gold Mirri on this one and finished off with ribbon and gems from the Embellishment Kits and a couple of bits from my crafty stash!

Next one is a Diamond Pop Out Card, made from Centura Pearl and one of the Beatrix Potter Female Embossing Folders. Toppers are from a card blank cut up and a couple of Rub Ons and gems.

This next one is a "Welcome Wall Hanging! I have used the whole Card Blank and embossed the whole card using Embossalicious - Floral Vine. I then put lace all around the inside and a piece of ribbon through 2 slits at the top to be able to hang it then glued it together. Added a couple of flowers, a bow and some gems from the Embellishment Kit!

The back of the Wall Hanging!
My last sample is a Wedge Box for a New Baby! I have made this using Pink card from the Pastels Centura Card Pack. I have used the Embossalicious Folder - Dottie and Die'sire Scalloped Tags and finished off with a Rub On onto Centura Card and doubled up using So Mod Core'dinations, Ribbon and Gems from the Embellishment Kits!

Final Sneaky Peek of The Country Diary of an Edwardian Lady

Hello everyone! It's glorious sunshine here today, can hardly believe it after the massive downpour yesterday!
Here is my final sneaky peek of this gorgeous new launch "The Country Diary of an Edwardian Lady & Nature Notes" that is coming your way tomorrow for the 4 Day Deal on Create & Craft. 
This card I made from one of the Shaped Cards on The Country Diary of an Edwardian Lady CD, just had to do a purple one! I printed out another card and cut around the image to use as decoupage and sprayed with Pink Iridescent Spray & Sparkle . I used some of the flowers from the embellishment sheet and added some gems, then some beautiful purple ribbon that a good friend of mine sent me, thank you, it matches perfectly!

On the inside of the card I printed the design so it all matched. Love these papers, they have a distressed look. Added one of the tags, a sentiment and a gem that looks so real!

Thanks so much for calling by I really do appreciate it!
