Owww just so in love with the fab images of these cute kitty cats from Nicecrane Designs. I made a Christmas card with another fab image from this serie, I so can not resist them. They come together with other lovely cat images. Click  here for the direct order link. I also used a text and a charm from Whiff of Joy, Pink Paisley papers. The doves are handmade :).

A Little Fall Wagon...(Halloween)

Now enjoy  Catherine `s work with my "Vintage Halloween Collection" . I saw these little wagons in a craft program, on the television, and although they didn't explain how to make them, I tried to sort it out myself, I just had to make one, I thought they were cute ! I first made a Christmas one - you will see it later in the year - and I had so much fun making it that I decided to make one to celebrate Fall !

It is made of four origami boxes (I put a tutorial on my blog a while ago, you can see it here...). The bigger box is made of kraft cardstock (the square you will need is 21 cm x 21 cm), the three other boxes are made using designer papers (Dimensions : 19 cm x 19 cm - 17 cm x 17 cm - 15 cm x 15 cm).
So here is my little wagon...

Happy Birthday with Kewpies

I must tell you Jane from Janes`s Journal is now on my DT. and I am showing her stunning coloring working with my adorable and sweet Kewpies. I am falling in love with her pastel colors,,,,wow,woww,,.
This is my first as a GD for Nicecrane Designs and it features another image from the gorgeous Kewpie get all 5 images in the download and they are a dream to colour. I was inspired by the purple of my Pimms to make this birthday card.

I coloured the image with Promarkers and highlighted with my Prismacolor pencils. I have added some tags, vintage tags and a grunge sentiment which are Lili of the Valley. I have coloured them with Distress Inks.
Just look at these cutie Kewpies in close up. You will notice that I made my pastel sky again with my cloud template and blue pastel chalk.


I have added glitter to their sweet little wings for a little bling.

And here is my sheet:

Autumnal Birtthday (by Astrid Maclean)

Astrid Macelan used one of the picts in my Alphonse Mucha collection, you can find it HERE.

I embossed a large tag with a Tim Holtz embossing folder and then inked it with a mix of Distress Inks, Tea dye, Rusty Hinge, Wild Honey, Peeled Paint and even a bit of Dusty Concord round the edges. I spritzed and flicked a bit and then stamped with various Prima stamps from the Vintage Vanity collection by Finnabair. I mounted the Mucha image on a bit of Kraft card, adhered it to the tag and then embellished with some die cut leaves I still had left over from another project. The gorgeous butterfly was a gift from a friend.

Boo Bag and Vintage Halloween Sheet

I have such fond memories of Halloween - especially when Lauren was little. Her second  Halloween  , we had a small party and the highlight was all of my family stationed in different rooms of the house, so the kids and their parents could trick or treat. Lauren was dressed as a pumpkin, as was most of the other kids! Must have been the in thing for 1987...

Nicecrane Designs has some awesome Halloween images. Love the scary pumpkins right outside the window in this one. She's from the Vintage Halloween set. This bag is super easy to make. All the pieces are separate - that way it's easy to fill, too!

The bow template is from The Cutting Cafe and the green papers are fromLilly Bimble. I've had the orange paper for so long that I don't even have a clue where it's from! I printed the green and black dot on regular copy paper to create the bag. Folded a doily over the top and used a clothespin to clip on the bow and the image. Be sure to visit Nicecrane Designs to see all the wonderful Halloween images in the store.
