Hello Crafters its been a while......

Well its been a hectic few months with the house build and we have had to live with relatives for a while too.  My Mum in Law has a lovely conservatory so I have been able to craft in there thank goodness.  My new craft room in my own home has been plastered but we have to live in that room until the main part of the house is ready, I cant wait to have my room back.

Anyway I have been very busy working on projects for DoCrafts and as we have some shows on HSE 24 shopping channel in the next few weeks,  they required samples for the products they were selling.

The first sample is  this cute box I decorated.  This was to show off the flower die on the top of lid.
The die is an XCUT Nesting Die - Bloom.  I love this Die as you can do so much with it.  The papers I used are from the Spots and Stripes Capsule Collection.

I really love the Vintage Notes Lace which really finished the box off.

And here is the Bloom Flower Die.

The next project I made was this cute card.

I adore these papers - you can get so many looks from one paper pack. How pretty are these flowers?

Lastly in this lot of Samples I made this gorgeous flower pot.

This is my favorite sample and it just goes to show how versatile this Bloom Die is.

The next product I had to do samples for was the XCUT Circle Cutter.  I had never used this tool before but now I have bought one for myself as it was so good and although I do have circle dies, this tool allows you to crate so many more different sizes.

I used the papers from the A4 Ultimate Die Cut Bellisima Range.

I cut the circles and used them in the background for this pretty Papermania Butterfly Urban Stamp.
I finished off with a paper Rosette and  ribbon from the Oyster Blush Capsule Collection.

The next sample in my cirle range is this one!
Again using the Capsule Collection Pastels Papers and embellishments, I have created a pretty card using the circle cutter and used the circles as a matt to show off the big bloom.

Next I made a shaped base card.

The Bellisima Range is so girly and I love creating cards with this kit,

The next sample was this pretty flower  which is great for hanging up on a door or wall.made with cirles that have been folded in half.

This is such an easy project but looks very effective.

Here is a close up.

Lastly I did a samples for the show using the XCUT Floral Frame Embossing Folder.

 Here I have used the embossing folder on parchment paper. It looks so pretty.  The papers are from the Bellisima paper pack and Papermania Gemstone Butterfly Stickers.
