Ooh La La double page layout

I am loving the new range from Ultimate Crafts deigned by Queenie Young.
I love to open a scrapbook album and see a double page so this is what I have created.

I started with the paper, Wrapped with Gold from the 12 x 12 paper pack as my background.
I used the Ultimate Crafts Die Livi Frames & Flourish Set to frame my photo's as I already had them  cut in an oval shape and they fit perfectly. 

I have used Chocolate Swirls paper to cut the Lavish Borders and just kept cutting and glueing them together till they fit across the page. 
The fence is cut from Core'dinations card stock Turtle to match the photo frame and the die is Ultimate Crafts Ornate Entrance Set there are 2 dies in this one.
I love to add a little flourish her and there so I used the  Ultimate Crafts Elemental Corner Set and just cut pieces if it to fit.
I have added some charms and chipboard for the Title and using the Magnolia Lane flowers I have added sequins to the centre.  
And found this lantern and painted it with gold first and then used Tinby Designs Metallic Melts in Bronze to give it the shimmer and antique look.
I hope you like my double page layout.If you click on Shelley's Land  you will go to my facebook business page.

Recycle Jewellery

Well who has lots of costume Jewellery that they have bought and worn a few times. 
If you don't want to throw them out why not use them in a frame. 
I glued the 12 x 12 paper onto the back of the frame, such a pretty paper
"Lemoncraft House of Roses "
cut a heart shape out with my cricut machine really just for the template.
Then its just a matter of glueing your pieces of jewellery to the heart.
I use my hot glue gun and Helmar Craft glue for the smaller pieces 
and the seed beads to fill up any gaps.
  I chose a frame that will be under glass so there will be no dust getting in.
Hope to create one in another colour soon

World Card Making Day

I made a few cards on Saturday for World Card Making Day 

I have been having fun making shaker cards here are two of them,
I have used the Ultimate Crafts Seasons Greetings 6 x 6 in paper Pad 
You have to trim the paper down a little bit to fit on to the 
Couture Creations Square cards and envelopes.
I love the new Seasons Greetings Collection Dies
 and this one I have used is On Dasher Night Sky
its perfect for a shaker card.

I have added some seed beads and Couture Creations Fine Glitter in green.
Added a little bling and a Couture Creations Poinsettia from the Small mixed poinsettia pack. 
I added a little branch from the Seasons Greetings Die Pinecone Layers

Second one is on the same size 6 x 6 card and cut down to fit.
Once again I have made this one into a shaker card buy cutting out just around the fireplace,
adding some acetate and foam mounting tape. 
This die is from the Seasons Greetings range as well 

I have added a little extra fine glitter to the front of the fireplace just for extra shine.
The paper is out of the same Seasons Greetings paper pad.

Just a couple of easy ones to pop in the mail. 
I have used the 6 x 6 paper and just cut out the sentiments. 
Adding a flower and a few branches.

I hope your enjoying your long weekend

I'm back

Hello Everyone
Yes its been a few months since I have put anything on my blog, I think its feeling a bit neglected.
I have been quite busy with life and have had a few obstacles to overcome and hopefully I have. 
I am still happily crafting although I don't seem to have enough hours in the day to do everything that I want to do, but that's life.
I thought I would just share a few pics of what I have been doing for the last few months.
These are a couple of cards that I made for Christmas 
As you may all know I do love my Metal Dies and I haven't put any of the Cards that I have made with my Marianne dies on my blog, so I thought I would share them with you. 

This Angel card was entered into a competition and I actually won First Prize for this
 and It was a Big Shot Machine, as you can imagine I was a little bit excited about winning.
I know its a few months since Christmas but these are little houses that I actually made for a few close Friends they were all filled with chocolates.
And some little popcorn boxes filled with Christmas Lollies 
I have got into the new world of 
Epoxy Domes and its amazing what you can do with them 

And the proudest moment of our lives in 2012 was when our son 
Corey had his High School Formal and graduation
Well I hope I may have given you a few ideas for this years Christmas projects,
 its never to soon to start them.
A big thanks goes out to a very dear friend who was a little worried when she hadn't seen anything on my blog for a while.
Thanks Lizzy for you kind words in your email you really helped me a lot.
Enjoy Shelley

Layout with Cheey Lynn Dies

Hello everyone
This is a post that I had on Scrappy-go-Lucky's Blog 
This photo of my Mum and Dad was taken on Fathers Day this year, My  Dad had just put little pebbles all over his back garden( its only very tiny) and he had a little bench seat that he has put under the trees so they can sit out there in the sun.I have got so many new Cheery Lynn Dies over the past few weeks it’s hard to choose which one I want to use.
I have had this paper in my stash for so long and I really love the way its turned out. I love the wire background on the paper and its also the fence around there garden so I just had to use the Chicken Wire Frame  FRM 144 for this one.
The other dies that I have used are
Ornamental Gate B 196Build A Flower 2 B 187Embellishment 1 B 181A, Flourish Leaf Strip B 178,Hummingbird B 193, Embellishment  Pennant Die D 103, Flourish Band B 176, Lace Script Lower Case LSLC.

Here is a close up of the Flower that I made using the new Build A Flower Die 2 B 187. There are lots of different shapes of petals in this Die and I actually curled a few of the spiky one and made it look like a bud. Then just added the extra petals to the back of it and for a bit of colour I used Tim Holtz Distress Ink Dried Marigold.

See you soon

Cheery Lynn Designs Challenge 50 - Corner Adorners

Hello Everyone
Well I am cutting this post very fine there is only a few hours left to get the challenge in for Cheery Lynn Designs Challenge 50- Corners Adorner.
I think the title say its ll you have to use a corner embellishment,
So here is my design for the challenge,
I made this sweet little easel box, you could fill with chocolates my favourite food or its big enough for a lip gloss or lipstick, I got the idea from the lovely Michelle and Robyn from Michelle's Cards and Stamps where I go once a month and make gorgeous cards and learn lots of new techniques.

So here is my design and the Dies that I have used are B 162 Lace Corner Deco B,
 XM-8 Oval Scalloped Dies.
I have used one of the corner die's at the back of my frame to give it a more delicate look,
The papers are from Pion Design, Fairytale of Spring and the little girl is from the Pion range Images From the Past you can get these from Scrappy-go-Lucky 
Well that's all from me I haven't been in my craft room for awhile I think I have lost my Mojo but who knows it could be on its way back.
The new Cheery Lynn Dies have been released for October so head on over to Scrappy -go-Lucky and put your order in.
Enjoy Shelley
