Summertime Tilda and A New Venture

Good morning everyone, Becky here with you today and at last in the UK we have had a little glimpse of some warm weather, admittedly it didn't last for long and I was on nights one of the days, but still winter is far behind us now, yay!! So I decided to use the perfectly named papers from Maja Design, Summertime!! Check out the end of the post for the links to everything in the store.

But before my card I just want to tell you all about my new venture, that I do with my almost 11 year old daughter Grace (I would say 10 year old, but she is adamant that she is almost 11, lol). We have recently started to make and sell our own nail polishes, we use vegan friendly products, and most of them are free of 10 of the nasty chemicals (they are all at least 5 free), they are available in our online store HERE and we have a Facebook Page HERE where there will be Facebook exclusives and details of special offers and competitions, so please follow so that you don't miss out. Currently we can only post to the UK, due to Royal Mail restrictions, but I am looking into ways to ship further afield. Most of the polishes are £5 and they come in a pretty box so are perfect to treat yourself or someone else. Right, now on to my card...

I have coloured one of the Class Trip Tilda's in with my distress reinkers, this is Tilda with Froggy, I love his slightly perplexed expression, lol. I used one of the Gummiapan stitched ovals to cut her out, and placed one of the special release doohickeys behind. I don't like throwing away pretty cut outs from dies, so here I have scattered some of the hearts around the image too.

Here is a close up of the doohickey, and also of the gorgeous antique luxury ornament.

I simply adore both of the bow dies from Magnolia, and they have both been rereleased, this is the bridal bow, and I think that it is just so pretty.

Here is a close up of our gorgeous Tilda.

And my arty shot. This card is quite clean and simple for me, but when I have used so many gorgeous products I can't bring myself to cover them up.

From the store I have used;
Tilda With Froggy
Maja Design Summertime 6x6 Paper Pad
Magnolia Special Release Bridal Bow Doohickey
Magnolia Special Release Background Hearts Doohickey
Gummiapan Nesting Oval Dies
Antique Luxury Ornament

Thank you so much for stopping by,

Sightseeing Tilda

Good morning everyone, Becky here with you today. The days here are slowly getting longer and warmer, and I am liking it, I really don't like the dark and cold.

Today I have used a few of the new goodies that Suha has in store, Tilda is from the Class Trip collection.

This cutie is Sightseeing Tilda, I have a list at the end of the post that will take you to the items that I have used instore. I have coloured her with distress reinkers to match the Denim & Friends collection from Maja Design.

This die is one of the re-released ones that have recently been released, this is Background Hearts and I have used Aquamarine monochrome from the same Maja Design paper collection.

I just had to use the Insta-Cam die, to match the camera that Tilda has round her neck.

Isn't this suitcase die the absolute cutest? I have used a few tiny brads to fasten the handle to the case, and then added a few flowers just because I can, lol.

Here is a close up of our gorgeous Tilda.

And my arty shot.

From the store I have used;

Class Trip - Sightseeing Tilda
Class Trip - Suitcase Die
Specila Release - Background Hearts

April Showers Brings Forth May Flowers

Good morning everyone, hope you are all well. Recently we have had so much rain in the UK, so here hoping the saying April Showers bring forth May Flowers is correct. I do love this time of year though, all of the new flowers starting to peek through, and knowing that summer is on it's way.

This is one of the newest Tilda's, and she hasn't got a name yet, she is from the add on Doohickey Volume 18 kit, and I thought she was perfect for this time of year! I have used my DI's to colour her in and match the Maja Design papers, as always there is a list at the end of the post with links direct to the products in Suha's shop.

I love this Sakura Branch, and how you can add as many flowers as you want, I have used papers from Maja Designs monochromes as they match the papers perfectly.

Along with the two tags behind the image, this vase is from the Volume 18 Doohickey magazine, and I have added a lilac to it, and lots of sparkle. Also tucked behing the image there is a hens net die from Gummiapan.

Some of the flowers that Suha stocks.

I have used a Gummiapan Stitched Nesting die to cut Tilda out.

My 'Arty' shot :)

From the store I have used:

Magnolia Sakura Branch Die
Gummiapan Nesting Stitched Rectangles
Magnolia Lilac Die
Maja Design Celebration 6x6 Paper Pad
Maja Design Celebration 12x12 (flower strip)
Maja Design MonochromesGummiapan Hen's Nest die

Spring Is In The Air

Good morning everyone, I hope that you are all looking forward to your week ahead. I am off work this week, and I am hoping to get the decorating in my living room finished soon.

For today's card I have used Inst-Tilda and coloured her with my pencils. There are links to everything at the end of the post.

I like this time of year with all of the flowers starting to poke their heads through, I think Snowdrops are my favourite spring flower, but Daffodills have to be a close second, I know that they're not normally pink, but that is the beauty of making your own flowers, they can match what you have made.

I have used Grandpa's Flower Leaf to go with the Daff's, they match beautifully.

I have cut out a chicken wire with a Gummiapan Hen's Nest die using some of the Monochrome collection paper from Maja Design. This paper has also been used to cut out the dafs and the hydreanga too.

Once again I have used a stitched oval nesting die to cut my image out, these really do give a lovely look to the card.

From the store I have used (Click on the name to go to the shop);

Insta Tilda Magnolia
Gummipan Stitched Nesting Ovals
Gummiapan Hens Net Die
Magnolia Doohickey Large Daffodil Die
Magnolia Doohickey Small Daffodil Die

Tilda with Daisy Umbrella

Good morning everyone, Becky here today, I hope that you all have had a lovely weekend. My jury duty finished last Tuesday, I was on it for over eight weeks, I have always wangted to do it and it didn't disappoint. I was on a fraud case, apparently it is one of the biggest cases that trading standards have ever investigated!

Now on to my card, as I have used two rather busy papers I decided to keep it relatively CAS, well it is CAS by my standards, lol.

I have coloured Tilda with Daisy Umbrella with my DI's to match the gorgeous papers from Maja Designs Celebration 6x6 collection.

I have used one of the stitched oval dies from Gummiapan.

And, here is the special release Bridal Bow Doohickey.

From the store I have used the following, click on them to go to the products in the shop.

Polaroid Tilda's...

Morning everyone, Becky here with you today. I have a card for you that I have been wanting to make for a while, when my daughter saw it she asked if she can have it for her birthday, lol.

I have used mini Summer Flower Tilda and Love Love Love Tilda, and a third from my stash and cut them slightly larger than the aperture on the Gummiapan Polaroid Frame die and secured them behind with double sided tape.

The papers are from Maja Designs latest collection. There are links to everything at the end of the post. This is the rereleased, special edition Bride Bow.

The Polaroid Frames are suoer cute, and work wonderfully with mini Tilda's.

I love this Insta Love Cam die, I have used a hot glue gun to give a slight 3D effect with the lens.

My arty shot.

Gummiapan Polaroid Die
Mini Summer FLower Tilda
Mini Love Love Love Tilda
