About the Artist

My photo
I just love crafting, the messier the better. Have been crafting all my days but in the last 10 years have been doing more and more. My obsession began with making cards and from there I have tried many different forms of crafting. Great fan of Tim_Holtz love all his products would love to own them all one day. Graphic 45 is another must have for me and again would love to have it all. And then there is Prima well what can a girl say, just simply stunningly beautiful. Really enjoying the vintage, shabby chic and steampunk styles which are very much in vogue at the minute. Love Lace and Pearl trim, you might be seeing a fair bit of it all on here. xx Please keep calling past and enjoy my crafting journey with me. Great Big Huge Hugs Becca xxx

Challenge #29
Trees/Wood

stamp or die cut OR have some form of wood, drift wood, or their whole entry can be wood. No small token or wood grain/wood embossed background is acceptable for this challenge as the theme MUST be the main feature.

Here is my DT project ATC Printer Trays






I used 2 Printer Tray - ATC Size - 3.5 x 2.5 inches - Laser Cut MDF Wood from WhichCraft .  
I hinged them together using a mini hinge and claps from my stash held on using E6000 and finished off with some gold flatback pearls.  I used one of my favourite Prima collections - Lyric - to cover the outside and also within each of the compartments in the inside.  I then selected some small lace trims from my stash and started to build up the inside.  Rummaging through my stash I found lots of little trinkets and goodies to add in along with tiny WOC flowers.  As I made this I though of a friend that I would like to gift this to and added the Tim Holtz words
'Treasure, Friendship Forever'

Hope she likes it :-)

Challenge #2

And without further ado here is my second DT Project for Rhedd's Creative Spirit




 I altered this gorgeous Fernli Designs Small Letter Rack Organiser with Drawer this measures 18cm wide x 10cm deep x 7.5cm at its highest point at back.  
The drawer is 7.2 cm wide x 16.8cm long x 1.6cm deep.

This went together so very easily and I used Glossy Accents as my adhesive.  I decided to add my own drawer pull from my stash which I covered in Viva Decor Inca Gold.
I have had G45 Olde Curiosity Shoppe in my stash for ages and I decided that this would be the perfect project to use it on, I just love this paper collection.  My lovely friend Jane in America very kindly sent me the gorgeous metal telephone and I thought it fitted in so well. To finish off I rubbed more Inca Gold to all the exposed wood edges which has added a lovely rich depth to the overall look.

Please come over and join in with our 2nd Challenge for your chance to win this fantastic Blank Birdhouse Money Box, smooth and ready to use.  23cm x 14cm (9" x 5.5") 
Isn't it just screaming out to your to be altered? ;-)


I so hope you like my creation for Rhedd's Creative Spirit.  
I can't wait to get started on next months creation, in fact I think I may just make a start today.

Thank you for stopping by, I truly appreciate you all.

Will be back soon with more creations for you.
