Spellbinders Amazing Paper Grace die of the month August

Hi and welcome to my blog.
 I'm so excited to share with you my first project with the August set from 

Becca Feeken from Amazing Paper Grace did it again, she designed another awesome
 pop up 3D vignette die set. This time it's a telephone.
With this 16 piece die set I've created this lace telephone.

Here are all the different pieces in this set.

On the Spellbinders blog as well as the Amazing Paper Grace blog there is video 
tutorial on how to assemble the telephone.

I cut my pieces from the Stamperia papers "Old Lace".

I embellished the front and also the two cards inside with small pieces of lace, little 
lace flowers, some lace trims and sparkly gems.

I also made two sentiments in word and printed them on the old lace patterned papers.

There is room for 4 different cards. You can put text on them but also photo's. 
Due to the 3D vignette pieces this card can be folded and placed in a regular envelope!
The recipient just has to unfold and admire this gorgeous layered project.

More inspiration can be found on the Spellbinders and

All Spellbinders monthly clubs can be found here:

Thanks for stopping by. 
I will be back later this month with another different style telephone.

Hugs, Henriëtte.

Flower card for Craft Box UK

Hello and welcome to my blog.
Anna Hersom, owner of Craft Box UK, has designed a beautiful collection called "Everyday".
This collection includes paperpads, stickers, flowers, journaling cards and ephemera pieces in 
the most gorgeous colors of mauve and peach.

With the papers from this collection I've created this card.

This card has many layers and to create more dimension I added sewing and also
foam between the different layers.

The 12 x 12 paperpad has a fussy cut sheet and I used some of these elements
to layer my card.

The flowers are from the Alice in Wonderland Collection.
They match really well with the papers

The sentiment is made in Word and printed on a piece of the scrappaper.
Finally I've added curly moss, a bow and little beads and sparkly bits.

You can find the entire Everyday collection here.

Thank you so much for visiting!
Take care.

Hugs, Henriëtte.

Alice in Wonderland door card for Craft Box UK

Hello and welcome to my blog.
I've made another project with the Craft Box UK  Alice in Wonderland collection.
This time I went for a card shaped as a door.
I searched for a template on Pinterest and found a suitable door card. 
You can find the template here.

I cut out the template using white cardstock and decorated the front with different 
purple shades of paper from the 6x6 pad.

I distressed the edges with black ink and attached two brads to 
function as door handles.

Then I decorated the inside. The three panels are embellished with 
fussy cuts and ephemera's from the Alice collection.

The sentiment I made in word using a funny quote from the 
Alice in Wonderland movie.

This is a funny card to send to a bonkers friend who will appreciate it

The items I used for this card can be found in the Craft Box UK webshop.

Thanks for stopping by my blog!
Have a great day.

Oriental card with Spellbinders Amazing Paper Grace July die set

Hello and happy Sunday.
I've made another card with this months die set called "Fanfare" from the
Spellbinders Amazing paper grace die of the month club.

The idea is from Becca Feeken, I saw it on her inspiration blog. 
The fan motive die can also be used to make a flower.
I thought that was a great idea.

The scrapbook paper set I used is Oriental garden from Stamperia.
It is absolutely stunning!
Using the smal fan die from the July set I cut out 6 pieces and glue them together
 in the shape of a flower.

The little black flowers are also made with a die from the APG July set.

With some black chord I made a Chinese knot following a step by step tutorial from a book I 
have about different Chinese knots. This one is called the coin knot.
I thought it is a great addition to this oriental card.

Beside the little black flowers I added gold sequins as a contrast.
On the inside of the card I used the big frame die to create some writing space
 on the black paper.
