DT: Craftyhazelnuts patterned paper challenge September

Hi there. I’m a bit late with this design team challenge but got there eventually tonight to join in on the first day. 

It is time to use some patterned paper on a project … in my case a card using the lovely Gorjuss decoupage panel. 

The green flowery paper I thought worked perfectly and I just needed to tone it down so added distress inks to the edge of the paper and the tag. 

Love the layers and finish course the Gorjuss girl.  Now I am off to see what the rest of the design team have been up to with their stash of patterned paper over at the blog

Happy crafting!

DT: Craftyhazelnuts patterned paper challenge

July already! Time for another Design Team contribution for Craftyhazelnuts  patterned paper challenge.

This time I am using up some old SU paper and made another card using the Docrafts decoupage kit and making another masculine card.  You would have thought after all the boy cards I made in June I would have had enough by now, but seemingly not!

I added the cute little tool charms and mounted it on craft paper.

Happy crafting!

Decoupage hearts

Another heartful posting for the Paperartsy challenge … This time a make for the princess’ bedroom! 

I had three wooden hearts that I had in the ‘to be altered’ pile for a while. I got some decoupage paper and then the princess and her friends covered each of the hearts with the strips of paper one day when they popped over between Christmas and new year.  They then sat on my desk awaiting finishing. 

Today I finished them…

I added black paint to the edge with my finger and then stamped the words LIVE  LOVE  LAUGH to white cardstock and then added the little flower. 

I decided to also add a little bit of stamping to break up the blue paper background a little.  I used Stayzon to add some geometric squiggles.

And here they are hung on the wall… not the easiest thing to photograph well… but the good news is that the princess loves them.

You should pop over to the Paperartsy blog and see what the design team have been making. I particularly love the piece Chris made. Love those heart flowers on wire… so creative and clever. Wonder if the princess fancies something like this in her room???

Happy crafting!

So the princess wants a change in bedroom for her main christmas present … she is going blue! Well black and blue to be accurate but more about that once it happens.  So the nine year old gets to open rolls of wallpaper and tins of paint, cushions, light fittings and curtains for her birthday… but of course she needs something special from her Mummy to open too!

So I grabbed some letters from hobbycraft and some funky blue papers…

Perfect stocking fillers and a cute new addition to our girls new room  (as soon as we decorate that is!).

Happy crafting!
