Compartment Boxes...Designed by Kathy Mills

Hello lovelies, I hope you have all enjoyed a lovely week-end.

I want to share with you a project I have just finished. I have made this for the fabulous Kathy Mills and her daughter Cara from 

Ruby Red Crafts

The "6x"6 Compartment Box is designed by Kathy and available to buy from Ruby Red Crafts.

These boxes are lovely to decorate, then pop a gift inside and the recipient can keep the box after. A gift in itself!

The boxes are so easy to make up. I would actually make some up and keep as gorgeous boxes for my craft room to store beautiful ribbons and pretty things in. Now that's another job to add on my to do list! LOL

The die-cut flower is Cheery Lynn Black Eyed Susan Strip, which I have also sprayed with Crafter's Companion Pearl Diamond Spray & Sparkle. Both available from Ruby Red Crafts.

I have also used Distress Ink Victorian Velvet around the edges of the topper and paper.

The boxes will also be available to buy from the Ruby Red Crafts Stand 

at the

National Motorcycle Museum Craft Exhibition

Saturday 1st February.

Make sure you stop by the stand and have a look at all the gorgeous goodies available to buy.

Thanks for stopping by today, I always appreciate your visits.

Have fun and happy crafting,
lots of love

A pleasant surprise...

Hello lovelies!

I  visited the Ross Papercraft show on Sunday 20th January in Hull. As it was so near my home town how could I resist! LOL

I had a very lovely day and bought lots of gorgeous new crafting goodies, including some new flower and border dies.

I had the absolute pleasure of talking to Kathy Mills and her lovely daughter Cara from Ruby Red Crafts . We had a lovely chat and I was pleasantly surprised when Kathy asked me if I would make some projects for her for samples.

I was absolutely over the moon, and so very excited too. So, here I am to show you what I have created. I have had a lovely morning decorating some "6x"6 Compartment Boxes which are designed by Kathy and available to buy from Ruby Red Crafts.

Here are two so far that I have decorated...

I have a few more boxes to decorate which I will be sharing with you all very soon!

Thank you for stopping by today,
happy crafting.
Lots of love

Aspire Crafts Design Team Cards...

Hello lovelies, well I hope you are all keeping well and have had a lovely Christmas and a very Happy New Year celebration!
It feels like it's been a while since I posted any cards. It hasn't been that long really...December is a busy time for me at work so I don't get the chance to create as much as I would like. When I do its usually finishing rushing with some last minute Christmas cards, family cards and a calendar I make for my hubby every year.
So, today I have dug out all of my ASPIRE CRAFTS  VINTAGE BLOOM COLLECTION 
and made a couple of cards to show you!
Of course it would have been unusual for me not to make a 'PINK' card. So one is pink! The other card is a colour I don't really use very much so I thought I would go with 'GREEN'.

The products used from Aspire Crafts are...
~ Vintage Bloom Papercrafting pad 12" x 12" 20069
~ Tip Topps 200
~ Pearls self-adhesive 20056
