New Launch From Crafters Companion- Edgeable and Word Dies

Hi crafters!
Exciting new launch Bank Holiday Monday from Crafters Companion More BRAND NEW designs coming your way with their new and totally fabulous Die'sire dies, this time the new Edgeables dies and Classiques Only Word dies. BOTH a total MUST, have loved working with them to make some lovely samples for this launch, so.... first off let me share the new Edgeables! oh they are so clever these lot at Crafters!!! so their new dies are fab,... obviously we wouldn't expect nothing else! so these dies are made so if you score your card stock in up, place the die along the crease then die cut, when you fold your card you will have a very clever and gorgeous fancy word cut to the top edge, or side! BUT they can do so much more ! here's a few samples showing how they can cut along the fold of your card..

look good?... ! love them, try popping a coordinating colour onto the inside of your card to show through too! like here... I've made a fold back card and the die still works perfectly

but here I have used the die to create a simple wrap to go around the centre like a border,
 and here I have used the die to create a centre piece for my main topper, you could easily have this going around all 4 sides too!

then for the new Classique Only Word dies, these cut beautifully! and look fabulous!!!

 cut two and off set to create a shadow effect, little bit of gilding wax? ooh love the stuff!!!!
so what do you think!? fabulous addition to the Die'sire family don't you think! you can make the quickest and simplest card look stunning by adding any one of these new dies!!
so now you need the show times...

I will be there watching our very talented Fiona dazzle you with these little warned, I think they will fly pretty fast!
hope you like all my samples, would love you to drop me a message!!
enjoy the shows guys!! catch you soon

Crafters Companion Gift Box Template samples

Hey crafters!! 
well, after what has been my busiest month....EVER I am FINALLY getting back to blogging.... so here we go!I have quite alot to share with you...( its been VERY Busy lol)
first off how about the amazing new template boxes brought to you by the just fabulous Crafters Companion! 6 BRAND NEW designs that were so easy to put together but look stunning AND some totally yummy double sided A3 card stock too!! If you want to take a look at the templates check them out on line just HERE and the new card stock just over HERE
Here we have the Oval Trinket Box
its such a pretty little gift box, and easy peasy to maky up, templates are super easy to draw and cut out and there is no going wrong in putting together, its simple!
decorated with some Sheena flowers coloured with distress inks and then sprayed wuth Stick n Stay and dipped in gorgeous glitter! 

Next the Oval Gift box,  a bigger version of the trinket box, and just as easy to make up, its such a beautiful gift box to give for any occasion, ive decorated with leaves and flowers....Sheena ones of course and some pretty lace and ribbon FAVOURITE!!!!!!! the house oooooh I loved making this one up, it honestly is easy, and there are so many different ways you could decoarte it up! possibilities are endless, one of the girls on the design team used the stone wall texture folder for the looked amazing! so I  thinking....HALLOWEEN haunted houses? as decoration or gift boxes full of sweets? then the BIG one, CHRISTMAS!! OH you know im going to have fun making a little christmas village with these dont you! pop a battery tea light in , perfect!
next... how cute is the gift bag! i've added some simple decoration here, but still effective, but pop on some ribbon and you have a lovely handbag! :)
the star, you know this one I thought would be fidley to make up, but guess what....yep easy! the templates make them easy to draw round, the instrutions are clear, no problem! would be lovely as christmas stars too!
now then....i left this one till last thinking, ok....its going to take a while, but it didnt lol, sort of the same principle as the trinket box the way you assemble the top part, then just decorate away! ive used the new card stock from crafters, but i want to do another one and go for pretty pastels and a basket pattern for the actual basket, how cute would say about 3 of these look hanging from a nursery ceiling at different heights!
so thats all the new ones! I then had a play with some older favourites
I was lucky enough to make samples for the launch of theseback last year and totally fell in love with them!

last year I decorated with pretty bows and tags ...this year, it HAD to be Sheena flowers!!

So there we go, blog post 1,....lots more to come so thank you for stopping by and i hope you will catch my new posts over the next couple of days!
