I would like to show you a card I made using Graphic 45, Secret Garden, A Place in Time, also Ladies Diary, papers and chipboard embellishments. As the Graphic 45 papers are so beautiful on both sides, I did not want to stick the roses tag down, so I made pockets for it to sit in and it can be removed and used it as a book mark etc.  I stamped the left rose pocket,I  used  vintage ribbons and metal embellishments.  I also used Tim Holtz distress inked the edges of the papers.

This photo shows the card with the tag removed, as you can see I added extra embellishments, to enhance the card when the tag is removed.

I hope you enjoy looking at these as much as I enjoyed making them.

Thank you

My Recent Magical Makes

These are my latest makes, which I really enjoyed making.

I made this keyholder and the key ring charm as a present for a good friend who has just moved, this is her new home present.

The key holder is a MDF key, covered in a terracotta colour acrylic paint
followed by a cream layer of acrylic paint, then Kroma Crackle Glaze from Indigoblu.  
I covered the key with Graphic 45, secret garden papers, (from Ali Craft),  painted the papers in slap it on to  give them a protective coating, 

The die cut butterfly has been dipped in my melt pot, my latest large purchase, which I absolutely love, everything is going to be dipped in utee now.  It really does give your papers a new life as an embellishment's and makes them into a keepsake.  The key charm is a Tim Holtz swivel clasp/key charm, some beads from my stash and Tim Holtz charms.

I am going to enter these into the following challanges
