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.

Shabby Chic Picture

Morning!! Just a quick post as I'm off shortly for a day's Mixed Media workshops with the amazing Finnabair!! Super excited!!

Anyway, this is a picture frame I made using the Shabby Chic collection from Sara Davies.

The frame is just as I bought it (from the Range) - as I thought the distressed colour was perfect. I used paper from the 6x6 paper pad for the background, including fussy cutting the flowers used in the top right corner!

I used a combination of Kraft and papers to cut with the Chic Butterflies, Classic Lily, Antique Edge and Aged Rose dies- with lots of Gathered Twigs Distress Ink. The little corner pieces are from the Weathered Wood die. I also used the Cherished Memories Stamp and Die set for the sentiment. A little bit of garden twine and co-ordinating Baker's Twine - along with Linen Script Ribbon from the collection - finished it all off.

Enjoy your day!!
