Rustic Summer Wreath

Good Morning Crafters

Instead of a card today I'm sharing a project I have wanted to do for a while, I made this wreath for the window display in Keep On Crafting.  Waiting for the clay flowers to dry takes the longest, I usually leave mine 24 hours to be absolutely sure they are completely dry.

Supplies from Keep on Crafting;
Polystyrene Wreath
Katy Sue Pansies mould (leaves)
Wow Rose Quartet mould
Hearty Paperclay; Magenta, Yellow, Dark Green & Green

Other supplies from my stash;
Lace ribbon

Using pretty scraps - Anna Marie Designs

Good Morning Crafters

I hope you are out enjoying the sun if you love it, or if like me you start to melt quicker than an ice lolly in anything above 22 degrees, that you have managed to find somewhere cool to chill out. 

Today I'm sharing some tags and ATCs that I made using the scraps from the four sheets I used to make the mini bird house.

I used 2 greyboard tags as a templates and made each tag slightly different by rounding the corners, adding 3D Schnee dots, Crushed Ice Crystals borders and different ribbons.  I have edged the tags with Forest Moss and Fired Brick distress inks.

My ATCs are also made from the scraps of the pages from the Christmas Jingle pad.  I have added Crushed Ice Crystals, Voile, half Pearls, Natural Accents, Stamens, Flowers and ribbon.

Mini Bird Box - Anna Marie Designs

Hello Crafters

Today I am sharing a mini Christmas make.  All the supplies are from Anna Marie Designs.  

The Bird Box comes as a little flat pack MDF piece (a set of three) which I have covered with papers from the Christmas Jingle 7 x7 pad before piecing it together.  I haven't glued it as it fits together very well and I also wanted the lid to be removable so you could add a small gift.
I adhered half Pearls (the packet contains assorted sizes) around the box opening with a dries clear glue.  The floor has been embellished using Natural Moss, various Stamens and elements from the Natural Accents Bundle.  For the roof I have added a Natural Pine Cone, Microbeaded Berry and Rose Hip Berries with Wooden Engraved Christmas Tiles

To finish I trimmed the roof with ribbon and added Crushed Ice Crystals and 3D Schnee (snow in a bottle).
