Well I've been in a bit of a whirlwind here over the weekend, football Saturday (Bristol Rovers won!) where I caught up with friends, then I spent time colouring and making (can't share yet) and then today I met my fab friend Debs to enjoy a few hours of eating cheesecake (me) and carrot cake (Debs) and chatting away. All to celebrate Deb's birthday tomorrow. This leads me to my projects I want to finally share with you. I made them a while ago and one part has already been showcased! But I couldn't share that or the makes until Debs had received them, which she did today.
So this 3-part-present included a decorated letter 'D', a card and a board of interest. Here they are -
So the letter - covered with the script paper from the 8 x 8 Time Flies collection paper pad. Then the flowers are from the die cut embellishments. I used Card Candi to centre the flowers however in one I used a white clay embellishment made using the Stampin'Up molds.
I added a butterfly to the top and added a Tim Holtz nib. I used Pearl paint on the edges of the letter and where the paper met.
Close up of the flowers.
Now for the card -
I covered an elegant edged stepper card again from Craftwork cards. I used embellishments from the kit and added Candi, clay embellishments and pearls.
The board of interest was inspired by all things Debs loves, from writing to photography.
I used the Tim holts die cut film strip plus the instant photo to add film and photography. The Tim Holtz typewriter represents writing as does the script paper and the nib on the butterfly.
Now this is the exciting bit - a few weeks ago this board was shared on the Craftwork Cards Blog as part of the FOCUS ON YOU showcase. I was so honoured and thank my fab crafty friend Emma Williams for suggesting I enter my work.
Here's a few close ups -
Phew, lots of photos but I wanted to really share the details on these projects. Thankfully Debs loved them all and saw the thought that had gone into each piece.
Right I'm off to do some colouring while listening to the footy this evening. I'll be back soon with some Polkadoodles projects as I start sharing my DT work with you all.
Take care Zo xx
