Pink Pick of the Month - Kanban DT Post...

Hello lovelies!

It's time over on the 


for my

'Pink Pick of the Month'.

I have been working recently with the gorgeous 


If you saw the show recently on Create and Craft TV you will have seen this kit.

It truly is gorgeous to work with, the quality is excellent. I love the design, and colour's in this kit. There are many elements to this kit including florals, owls and denim pockets. Of course owls are always a popular option.

The kit I think is great too for any age group. You can make projects that take more time, or if time is short you can whip up fast cards in no time at all. This is brilliant if you sell your cards, a fast, quick and economical way to re-stock with your beautiful creations.

My 'Pink Pick' this month is a card I made using some gorgeous florals from the kit...



I also love the lace printed effect on the background, it is beautiful.  The florals look so pretty.

I have an extra 'Pink Pick' for this month too, just so I could show you more elements of the gorgeous


I have used the denim pockets on this card...


The detail on the pocket is lovely and I couldn't resist adding some bling.

I hope you like this kit, it has been very popular.

We have lot's of exciting things coming up, so to keep up to date I would love it if you could follow the Kanban Blog 

You will also regularly see stunning projects from the rest of the design team. We have lot's of lovely things to show you. 

I will be showcasing lot's more of my creation's using so many of the gorgeous kit's.

Thanks for stopping by, we always appreciate your visit's.

Till next time, happy crafting!

Lots of love

My latest jewellery creations...

Hello lovelies!

I just wanted to show you these bracelet's I have recently made. I loved making these.

The first two are a hugs and kisses style bracelet.



This one is a tennis style bracelet.

I absolutely love making jewellery, it's beginning to get very addictive. 
I like to make random pieces of my own, but then I also love making pieces from kits. These bracelets are from kits. 

I think they look very glamorous.

have fun,
