About Me

My photo
I'm a part-time primary school teacher, who started papercrafting 8 years ago, when I had a fancy to make my own Christmas cards. Since then, I have tried all sorts of techniques and styles - and I kind of like them all. So my work is very varied, which keeps me interested - and my crafty stash growing!! As well as cards, I love working with boxes and canvases - and I'm always seeking inspiration for new projects.

Day 7 - Halcyon Days - From the Card Kit this time!!

Morning! Am feeling a little sore in the shoulder, arm and wrist this morning, after my bump in the car yesterday. So am off to the doctor in a mo to get checked over. But before I go, I though I would share one of the samples from the Halcyon Days Card Kit that I got to play with.

There are some gorgeous mini frames with decoupage - and they come with a little box that you can decorate too!!
There is a little stand to fix to the back of the frame if you want it to stand up. I used the frame and decoupage as they came on the sheet, and added one of the sentiments, a little bow and some pearls. There is also a matching topper and frame that fits perfectly onto the box. I put some of the printed cardstock and gingham ribbon behind the frame, and then added the topper at an angle. Another sentiment, bow and pearls finished this off.
I don't like leaving the inside of a box plain, so used more of the printed cardstock and ribbon with a third sentiment. I cut a decorative square for the inside of the lid, using the smaller of the Die'licious Elegance Frames.
A photo of this is also on Sara Davies' blog today - so feel very honoured. Keep checking the Crafter's Companion FB page for more inspiration. Not long to go now!!

May well pop back this afternoon as I have SOOOOO many samples to share and the launch starts tomorrow!!
