Here are my makes from this weekend; firstly a vintage style romantic tag the background is made using sheets from the Creata Pattern Card pads with glitter. It is a simple weaving technique, easy and therapeutic. The 3D elements are die cuts from the large Creata die cuts and patterned pads, raised on 3 sets of sticker foam pads and finished off with Creata lace.
I'm a crafter therefore I stash stuff! For a while now I have been 'storing' a few inexpensive gift bags, you know the ones that normally cost about £5 and you're not really sure why! I managed to get these for 50p each in a closing down sale, wish I had bought more now! Anyway thanks to a few challenges I finally got around to using one and decorating.
The flock words 'joy' and 'girl' were from my stash and are self-adhesive. The words 'baby', 'adore' and 'sweet' are self-adhesive letters again from my stash. I made the rose and rosette (using my new found gift wrapping techniques) using pink satin florist ribbon, I vandalised a pull bow to make this! Using the Creata feather dies I cut various sizes of feathers from Creata pink mirri card. The owls were from also from my stash I coloured them with my Graph It markers (colours; 9100,9101, 5110, 5115, 5120, 5125 & 5130), the satin ribbon in the corner was original white but I coloured this using Graph It marker no. 5115.
