Designed in partnership with award-winning illustrator Katy Hackney;  The Emporium is the seventh instalment in our Hackney & Co. series  and brings with it a range of coordinating stamps, vintage metal beetle  charms, wooden ephemera, washi tape and adhesive enamel dots.

I made this 6" X 6" card using the tearing technique with the beautiful papers in this collection.

The sentiment is from one of the stamp sets from the collection.

I cut the moths from one of the papers and decoupaged them...

Vintage Song Stationary box

Afternoon everyone
I hope you are having a fab day.

My project today is my DT make for the
Challenge Blog

The Theme for this months Challenge is
'Anything Goes'
This month's fabulous prize sponsor is Gecko Galz
The winner will also be invited back as a guest designer! 

I created this using an old seed box I had....
I used a ProMarker, black, to colour the edges and covered it with paper from the Stamperia papers 'Music'
I tore the edges and used Tim Holtz Distress Inks - 'Tea Dye' and 'Brushed Corduroy'



....I made the pendant by attaching some of the paper, a rose, onto the back of a metal embellishment and poured in resin...



...I lined the box with black faux velvet...


I cut the tags and postcards out from the paperpad, punched holes in the tags, add ribbon then used strips of the paper to bind them.

I added heart shaped gems which I simply coloured black with the PoMarker to match the theme.

I hope you like my project and I hope you can join us at
the FANTASTIC Challenge

Have a drink on me

Good afternoon everyone
I hope you are having a lovely day.

My projects today are a gift card containing a drink coaster and a gift box with a coaster and an instant caramel coffee sachet.
 I created these using the adorable
debut collection in partnership with illustrator and author, Melissa Lowry'Over the Hedge'
brought to us by Craft Consortium...
Check them out 'HERE'



I used one of the stamp sets for this collection...
I stamped Olivia onto a round piece of grey board, masked off and stamped the leaves around her.
I used Pro-Markers to colour.
I then used a plastic lid from a carton, placed the grey board inside and covered with clear resin and left to dry for 12 hours.
While this was drying I made the rest of the project.
I made the gift card by eye, it is a template that I have been working on but needs some work.



The background paper is from the paper pad.


I lined the box with red felt and made a platform for the coaster to rest on.

Other products used

Olivia the Owl wood embellishment
Twine
Tonic die
Faux flower
Gold metallic ProMarker

Hope you like my project, I had fun making it and these stamps are just amazing and it is such a beautiful collection that will surely go down as one of my favourites from Craft Consortium.
