Sneak Preview ...

New pink foot on the way?  This is an awsome Baby Shower Gift.



My daugther loves gardening.  Whenever she visits me or her grandmother, she heads for the garden to see what she can harvest for her own garden. So I made her this Watering Can.

I did some partial painting with Black Gesso and Tim Holtz Acrilic Distress Paint, in the areas where I wanted to adhere the fussy cuts.  I then adhered the fussy cuts and words with gel medium.  Once that was dry, I sealed everything with a sealant and applied some Rose Gold Prima Gilding Paste.
She loves it, and is now proudly displayed at her house for all the admire.



I just LOVE this C84 Vintage Elegance from #FabScraps.
This Box Frame card was made for a very special 60th birthday.

2.       With a bone folder, burnish all the score lines to form a crisp fold.

3.       To assemble the basket: Lay the cardstock with the triangles facing the top and bottom.  Take the outer 1 inch strips and join together and glue with a strong adhesive. Now take the centre 1 inch strips and join them so that it is matching up to the 1st 2 joined strips.  Do the same with the last 1 inch strips.  Fold the triangle strips up over the joined 1 inch strips.  Fold the little lip it forms at the top, over the side of the basket and glue down.  You should now have a basket shape as per photos.

4.       Punch or die cut 2 of the larger circles from the C115 paper and fold in half. Adhere over the sections where the 1 inch strips were joined together.

5.       From the cardstock, cut a strip measuring 9 inch x 1 inch.  This will be your basket handle.  Adhere the ends of the strip to the insides of the basket, as per photos.
