... like a rainbow

Just thought I would get a little creative and think outside my "normal" square.

You know...just let the true colours shine a little bit (thanks Cyndi Lauper) :)

Wedding Album No.2 - Commissioned and Sold

This is the 2nd Wedding Album I have finished. Again I do not personally know the recipient but I was asked to keep it very simple. Mmmmm...I am not very good at simple sometimes. It's quite difficult to create something for someone that you know nothing about, so I did my best and I hope that they like the results. I tried to keep it elegant and simple but not old fashioned. I used the same base as the other album but different colours and papers and a very different mind set, so all in all they are indeed very different and unique results. I would never make 2 the same.
I will make a Youtube video for this one as well. Enjoy and hopefully be inspired...

Lucky 13

Here's a birthday invitation I just made. I really like the colours, they look lovely together and a nice change...The flowers were actually white so I painted them with my Cosmic shimmer mists. I think they turned out perfectly. (Thank goodness)
I will be adding Birthday packs to my store really soon, so keep watching this space.

Gift Card Holder

This one was done some time ago, but I wanted to share it with someone so here it is.
It's a great way to give a Gift Card. There are of course many ways to make this and this is only one variation.

Sweet little mini...

Here's a little mini I made for my Madeit store. I love the paper. It's sweet and gentle but classy at the same time. It has 7 tags and pockets ready for photos, journalling or maybe quotations? That would be nice. I think the next one I make will be a quotation album. Yes, that will make a lovely gift...

Frame a thought...

I created a very similar frame for a kid's birthday party class. It turned out that I really liked it! I then decided I would make another one with a few differences. I love the paper (So what's new??) and made some organza flowers to add to it. I love the saying "It takes courage to grow and become who you really are" mmmmm food for thought... I added a bit of glitter (of course) and the obligatory tiny bit of blingf. You can find this frame in my madeit store, just click on the button to the top right of the page, it will take you on a non stop trip right there! :)

Bookmark Card (FOR SALE)

Here's a lovely card. It has a nice detachable bookmark. It's just soooo pretty! What a great gift when giving a book or as a small token thought for someone when just sending a card. The card background paper is gorgeous and the bookmark tag is a divine print of a soft pink Hydrangea with some lovely script in the background. I have attached a sweet lace tail with a diamente pin.
It's in my store so click on the link at the top of the page to see! I will be adding more of these as soon as I get the time...haha

A trip to the Beach (Commissioned and SOLD)

I was asked to make this card for someone who loves the beach. I am happy with the result. The paper is simply beautiful. I have added some white beads, a silver heart charm all on a raffia tie.
In the bottom corner I have cut out and added 3 shells with foam dots to give them a 3D effect.
Have a look at the quick video (only 1 minute)on my You tube, it's Video 29. The music almost transports you to some remote island and you can just about feel the warm, soft sand between your toes...go deserve's cheaper than a holiday!

Learn Love Dream Inspirational Mini Album (FOR SALE)

The photo will slide behind this sentiment and it will sit over the corner of the photo or you can put a smaller photo on the page.

This picture above looks pink for some reason but it is actually white!

Well as some of you may notice by the link at the top of the page, I have just recently started selling my items in my new online store *clap clap *. The link is above and it is part of an online handmade marketplace called MADEIT. All items on MADEIT are handmade and are for sale.

This inspirational mini album will be for sale as soon as I can get the time to upload the pics.
It was made from 6 black envelopes and will hold 20 - 25 photos. The inserts inside each page hold 2 - 6x4 photos, one on each side. A few photos may need to be ever so slightly trimmed to fit the page. The flowers, cut outs etc. are only adhered one side and room has been left for the photos to slide underneath the embellishment, so they sit neatly over one corner of the photo.It is full of inspirational quotes and colours to make your mouth water... It would be perfect for a birthday or someone leaving school perhaps or a gift to inspire someone?
The front cover has some lovely charms, a heart, a set of keys (to a happy life perhaps?), and a star. They are sitting alongside some gorgeous beads, nestles in organza ribbon and a little bit of bling on the cover.
The lovely flower is accompanied by sweet lace leaves and sits beautifully on the cover.
Perhaps it could hold photographs of friends or people who inspire or maybe an event (18th, 21st?, engagement?), end of school, anything really. Hope you like it. I also hope to see at my store *wave wave* I will only make one of these so it will never be recreated.
