Bee Arty - Embrace Change

Hello Bee Arty Fans

Luckily my DT parcel arrived late last night filled with new collections that I haven't yet had a chance to play with... And I say luckily because we now have delta covid on our New Zealand shores and have gone into snap lockdown, and this parcel arrived in the nick of time considering I had nothing left! LOL

So over the next few posts I do I will be doing 3 cards using the cut out from Embrace Change Collection designed y Fiona Paltridge

I sat down and cut all the pieces out

I then picked out the background called Spice I was going to use for all 3 cards, - I then put two aside for a later date so I could finish the first card

I picked out the fern like greenery and butterfly, but felt like it needed bit more so hand tore the left over paper then inked the edges

Placed and glued them down using Art Glitter Adhesive

Glued down the butterfly, and picked out a word from Poetry which I wanted to use, inked all edges and mounted onto a white card

The longest part of the whole card is to fussy cut the images. But when you have sore eyes and are giving them a break from colouring or aren't confident in colouring, this is the perfect solution.

I going to work on the next couple cards during lockdown..

Until next time, stay safe..
Happy crafting

Faith Pocock - Sewing Themed Box

                                                     Good morning Faith Pocock Fans

Not sure if I have told you... but I brought a sewing machine!!! AND I was going to do this project to keep my cottens in... but as we all know I tend to go overboard in everything I buy.... so they dont all fit... HOWEVER, I asked Faith if she could cut some tabs that I could wind some lace on so I could then store them in this Sewing Themed box from  Faith Pocock Studio 

It was a pretty easy project to put together, as always - dry run then glue run.

This box comes with a whole lot of little bits and pieces, I choose not to use them, although looking at them now I may at a later stage ad some cotton to the MDF buttons and glue on

Picked out some sewing themed paper from Stamperia

And started gluing and sealing

The lid just slides in to each little eyelet on each side

I choose not to paint the inside as didn't want any smell to taint the lace. Not sure it would, but didn't want to risk it

And here are the tabs I got Faith to make. I got 100 made... and are slightly embarrassed to say I have used every single one!!! Lace hoarder!

I added some tissue to outside of removable lid and used distress ink to age it slightly

Finished project!

Until next time 
Happy Crafting

Bee Arty - Spread your Wings

                                                                   Hello Bee Arty Friends

Today I am showing you what I have left over from Spread your wings collection and two projects using it all up

These papers are just about run out so jump on over and grab the last lot of paper or the bundle deal before they go out the door

Below is the leftovers I keep in a bag, I spread them out and form an idea... card and tag

Select any dies or stamps you may wish to use... I plan on using Unwind Stamp set,  Say it Stamp set and Honeycomb Die

Cut my basem stamped my flowers and fussy cut them out, and picked a darker scrap for the Honeycomb die

Arranged them then started gluing. I use normal Uhu glue for anything like the die, but everything else is glued down with Art Glitter Glue

Next onto the matching tag - following the ams process I formed an idea

And started layering

This is the end result - soft colours - lots of layers. Looks like it would take a while to make but in reality the longest part was getting out he cuttlebug!

Until next time
Happy crafting
