Time is what you make of it!!

Hi guys, liz here with another card for my hubby, this time for his Birthday, which years ago when it was his Birthday 4 days after our wedding seemed a good idea!!!
not too sure when you've to wrap your head around two men's cards in the same week now though!! but thankfully this year the latest Crafteezee collection "Life Is A Journey" from Tracy came in real handy!!!
Now hubbies into fishing!!! so the fabulous LOTS Pion papers which came in the kit were perfect,

Included in the kit was the fabulous lace, I think a hint of lace never hurts anyone including fella's, lol
the fabulous film strip, the adorable resin Camera and the awesome metal banner which says Time is what you make of it, well believe me, men can fish the hours away no danger!!! he he,

For a little added interest I added a Fantasy 8 Pointed Doily die behind the layered papers, adding a little touch of structure paste and then a wooden clock which came as part of the kit too,
(I then added a fishing thingy, yes no idea what's it called, as my son "who's a fishing nut too" told me which way up to place it!!) then I added some of the twine type stuff which was wrapped around one of the parcels in the collection, (see I try to use everything) as the line and some cogs from the kit as a little added decor!! lol

I finished off the inside of the card with one of the papers, a chip board bottle by Scrapiniec again in the kit, onto which I added a little vintage photo ink too, the text and fish stamps were from my stash,

Do check out May's fabulous Life Is A Journey collection and the next one for June which is the 

Happy Crafting!!
Hugs Liz xx

Use Your Wings

 Morning Crafters,

Tracy here sharing a card made for a magazine recently.  I have used the Dutch Doobadoo Stencil Window  for the shape and beautiful papers by Craft and You My Wedding.

Dies used are both by Joycraft and taking centre stage is a Scrapiniec Use Your Wings text, isnt it beautiful.

I have adorned with 25mm and 20mm open roses, poppies, pomegranates and rosebuds and finished with a wax cord bow and leaves cut from another Joyc raft die, links below.  The card can close shut using small magnets also available in store.  I added double row pearl trim to each side.

Hope you like it.

Hugs Tracy x

More of The Songbird's Secret

Good day!!  Today I wanted to share a pretty vintage card I made using one of Pion's recent collections called "The Songbird's Secret".  Aren't the laces pretty?  Lace Amelia - Ooooooo even a pretty name!!

Here I've used some ivory colored Foamiran and colored the edges, heated with an iron and shaped some die cut pieces with the Rosy Owl "Flower Dies 2" set.  I just love these big leaves too and you can make them a little smaller just by leaving them on the iron a little bit longer but don't leave it too long because I found they toughen up and then you can't shape them.  That's fine too if you like the shape that's created by the iron alone.  

This nice little birdcage is on sale right now!!  Go scoop yours up before they're all gone.  I just like the size of them and sometimes when I feel like I have a bit of a space left, it's perfect!!  

On the "Memory Notes" 12 x 12 paper there are some tags but also this cute little "Moments" sentiment and a few more.  Here I've cut the Foamiran with the Rosy Owl "Trailing Leaves" die but then while it was heated, I pressed in one of the moulds (see below) to get an imprint for the leaf.  It's subtle but I think that's all a person needs.

Thank you so much for stopping by!!
Have a great weekend and I'll be back next week!
 I hope you are too!  :)
