Bebunni Floral

The latest crafting release from Crafters Companion is Bebunni surrounded by flowers. I think this has got to be one of the prettiest CD's that we have ever released. The art work and colour palette are stunning. All of the design team have loved working with this release. The 4 Day Deal launches on Monday, presented by Sara, Leann and Fiona.
Below is a gallery of my samples, hopefully they will give you some inspiration.....but to be honest I don't think you will need much. You'll be itching to get started.

I embossed a couple of the panels with the Sugar and Spice Lovebirds Embossing Folder.
Also as part of the Bebunni die range we have the cutest little  Butterfly dies (there is also lovely little bee)
Sentiments from Bebunni stamp range

Sometimes we have to make cards for difficult and sad occasions and how beautiful is this poppy.
This one is from the Decoupage section
I printed one of the Coordinating Papers onto Neenah card then cut into it with  the Decadance Create a Card die.In the apeture I used a  4x4 insert with verse from the design set section of the CD.

This large card features a Topper Companion, 
I printed a Coordinating paper onto Watercolour card which gives a lovely finish.
Flowers are from Embellishment section, I love them they are so pretty and perfectly match the sentiment, which funnily enough you will find in the sentiment section.
I used Black card, ribbon and beads for the accent colour.

I really love how this Card Companion  card turned out
The base card is a scalloped 8x8 card which I ran through my Ebosser with the Sugar and Spice Rose Trellis Embossiliing Folder.The sentiments and paperclips are part of the card companion components. The lovely little flowers are from the embellishment section of the CD arranged onto Die'sire Ivy Large and Small sprays and Quilling flower leaves.
I used Coredination card for the contrast mats and the leaves.

There are some beautiful stamps to accompany the CD and I used my Spectrum Noir Pens and Pencils to colour them.

Centura Pearl printed with a coordinating paper embossed with Create a Card Ornate Lattice die overlaid with another cut  from design set paper, Border cut using Bebunni Cottage Lace border die. I also used the pencils to recolour the rose sprays to match my stamped image.

Sorry It's been so long.

Hello friends,
 I have been having technical difficulties with my blog for several months, it didn't matter how hard I tried I could not upload photos. It's been very frustrating. I've not been able to post lots of lovely releases other than on Facebook.

 Thanks to my lovely Design Team collegues they have got me sorted so photo blogging can resume.
Here is a little taste of my previous samples.

 It's really lovely to be able to share with you again.                                        Happy Crafting.

CC May Challenge

Crafters Companion Challenge May 2014
The theme for this month is Masculine
My card uses the Camden Town male CD and the card kit.
The topper Companion was printed from the CD, and embossed across one side with the Embossalicious Stich in Time folder.
I added faux stitching around the edges. This was matted onto the Happy Birthday topper from the paper kit  ( think it had a London bus on it ) which I cut into so the topper could slide underneath.
The 8x8 base was made from printed Neenah card which I topped with a diagonally cut shaped card from the kit.
I finished the card with items from the kit and inserts from the CD.

Halcyon Days

The latest release from Crafters Companion is a CD called Halcyon Days
The CD is created around the beautiful fabric pictures sewn by Abigail Mill. The images evoke memories of holidays at the beach, pretty multi coloured beach huts and cream teas. Quintessentially British.
Crafters Companion designers have filled the CD with complimentary papers and embellishments.
This sample uses several sections of the CD.
Gatefold card folded around a Frame card.
The card base is one of the papers  printed onto Neenah Card. I printed it 3 times. It is a basic gatefold but has a 3cm spine down each side.
The front is decorated with borders from the CD and embellished with a 3D bow also printed from the CD. Brown Co'ordinations card provides the frames around the details.

Frame card mounted onto the inside of the gatefold card.
The sides are decorated with panels from the border section matted onto Co'ordinations card The bunting is from the embellishment section, the letters are rub ons  from my kit. The sentiment is also from the CD

The gatefold card was made by interlocking three pieces of Neenah printed with the design paper. This enabled me to create the insert section.
I printed 2 inserts one with a verse one blank.I used another of the image borders which I loved to complete the inside.

This is a really pretty CD and has lots of lovely images, below are some of my other samples created for the launch. Thanks for popping by.
Happy Crafting.
