All wrapped up

February 27, 2019

Back with you today with a wrapped up envelope I have created and filled up with foamiran flowers.

This stamp is from Stampclub 2 which will soon be available at our Magnolia-Licious store.

If you want to know how I have created this project, just leave a comment underneath and I will forward you the dimensions.

This Tilda from Stampclub 2 comes with several options. The actual present  she is holding is a separate stamp from the same collection but if you want you can use any of the other stamps like the ice-cream for example.

I have coloured her up with Prisma Pencils on Grey Strathmore paper. Then fussy cut her and the present and used foam on the present only.

I hate fussy cutting but since I wanted to use her on a different background it had to be done :)

I have used Lemoncraft designer paper which is another paper collection that I adore.

The flowers are all foamiran from our shop. Even the stamens. This time I used the pearl ones as well.


The leaf dies come from different Magnolia doohickey kits and Online Magnolia Day Kits

I used some flower chipboards and a heart balloon chipboard to give it a bit of dimension.

I have used two different coloured pearl drops around the project. Lavender/pink and pearl white.

The sentiment stamp is also Magnolia. It's from Raising The Ceiling Collection in 2010.

The pink needles are something I have a box of - not sure when it will ever finish :)

Just noticing I haven't used any ribbon this time on my project. Not to worry we will double up next time round haha

Have a great day everyone!

Let's Go!

February 25, 2019

Have you seen the new "Let's Go Collection"?!!  Oh my goodness so cute and that's what I'm sharing with you today!!!  This month our challenge is favorite papers so again, I've used mine.  Well....Maja Design is my favorite designer of papers so I can't go wrong with any collection from them.  In this case I decided to use  "Denim & Friends"!!  

And as mentioned, CUTE!  CUTENESS overload!!!  And this one is "Bath Tub Tilda", which I colored using my Prismacolor pencil crayons.  I'm having so much fun with them!!   I added some Stardust glitter to the bubbles and created a shaker box!!

Isn't this mirror amazing?!!!  I've added a shabby seam binding bow, WHICH YOU CAN NOW PURCHASE FROM THE STORE!!   WOO HOO!!  This color is called "Ascot Grey" and matches the grey perfectly on the Maja papers.  I love it and I think I need more.  hee hee

I've added my usual bouquet of flowers but snuck in a couple of Foamiran flowers using Whimsey's "Peony" die, white micro bead stamens and some white vintage stamens.

 Another view of the foam flower:

One more.....

I hope you've enjoyed my card today.  If you get a chance, please join in on our monthly challenge!  It's so easy!!!

February 22, 2019

Hello everyone, hope you are looking forward to the weekend and to some quiet crafty time :)

I am so pleased to have joined the Magnolia-licious team with all the lovely ladies plus Shawn who is indeed a truly kind person whom I have the pleasure to now also call a friend.

I am sharing with you today what I have prepared as my first inspiration post for Magnolia-licious.

Get ready for loads of pics .... hope you don't get bored :) !

This box took me quite a bit of time to complete as it involved a lot of mental calculations  and stitching, but I have to say I loved doing it, especially since it was something I had in my mind which needed to be created.

This is Miss You Tilda from the 2016 - A Touch of Love collection.  I have colored her up with Distress Inks and die cut it with a personal die from my collection. It gave her a shabby cut not a proper oval. I have used some organza around the image to give it a bit of a different look.

The foamiran flowers you can see on this project are flowers that I have made myself. If you have a look here you will find several different dies you can use to create some beautiful flowers with the colour and shape of your choice. The shop stocks a lot of different coloured foamiran.  I enjoyed experimenting and forming them particularly for this box.

The papers are of course Maja Design - Vintage Summer Basics - the right colour I needed.

I have formed a small frame around the bottom of the lower flap to form a box.

I have use a Magnolia stamp for the inside of the box which is Elegant Heart from the Raise the Ceiling Collection in 2010.  I have embossed it with mirror gold embossing powder.

The beautiful chipboard heart is from Scrapiniec. You can find several heart shapes in the shop which you can use for your projects. Heart Chipboard is something we can use on any project.

I have used Light Grey Foamiran from the shop which I have dyed with some milled lavender distress. 

Stamens also purchased from the shop, have given the flowers the pearly centre look they needed.

Here you can see better how it looks from the side. I love how the fluffy organza looks around the image :)

I have stamped a Magnolia sentiment on the side of the box and also used a Magnolia butterfly around the edges.

The ribbon is actually two ribbons - a wider one and seam binding glued on top of each other.

I have placed a nice scented bath fizz that fits exactly inside the box in the form of a ideal present for a kind friend :)

Hope to have inspired some of you to create this box and if you need any info happy to help anytime.
