Back to PINK

Morning All,
Sandy here and this week I've asked the LLC DT to showcase the beautiful vintage papers from Swedish Reprint. I believe last week's St Patrick's theme was somewhat traumatic for the DT members, but they're probably more in their comfort zone this week considering that most of the Reprint papers are pink. :-)
Tina has created a paperbag card.
The image/tag is from last year's sheet with Summer Tags.
This is what the pull out/insert looks like.

The butterflies are from Pion Design's Border sheet.

Thanks for stopping by.
Hugs from Tina & Sandy

Strawberries and Cream

Hello Everyone,

Do you love strawberries and cream, yum yum I do and when Sandy chose the theme this week as "Reprint" I knew exactly what image I was going to use.  Very different for me but I love how this has turned out. As the image was all about strawberries I have used the Dutch Doobadoo stencil and made up the strawberry gift box to go with the card.


The image is from Reprint's Romance Labels and the paper I used is called Sweet Roses.

I added a little chunky white frantage to the image. 


I have used the gorgeous Marie Therese lace in Grey and also added some pearl crotchet trim lace.

The flower arrangement is made up of flower spray, 20mm roses, cosmos flowers, kort and godt curly roses and shabby seam binding.  There is also a little garden spade charm in there too :)




I first added shabby white frantage to the Dutch Doobadoo "Hello Sunshine" and then I stippled some structure paste for texture.



Here's my strawberry gift box which opens when you untie the bow.

I made the green leaf and then added an inner leaf made out the matching Reprint paper.  



I added red berries to the centre.


Hugs Tracy x
