Eileen Hull's Treasure Box and Stacking Drawer

I really enjoyed decorating the top of this Treasure Box, it's been ages since I've done any mixed media and I just love how all the textures work together, along with the clean fresh papers from DCWV. I've layered lots of Baked Textures from Emerald Creek, along with some of their gorgeous little semi precious gem stones.

The Palms and Ferns paper stack from DCWV is just gorgeous, and with so many co-ordinating papers to choose from just perfect for decorating the Treasure Box and Stacking Drawers, which are hidden away inside.

I cut the hinges and handle from gold card to co-ordinate with the beautiful palm leaf papers.

I used masking tape to create a hinge, being careful to make sure that the edges are lined up before adding three pieces on each side, that overlap each other. Once I'm happy they are adhered, I add the patterned papers over the top. I also glue the Stacking Drawers into place leaving a slight gap around the front edges, so that when I add the paper strips I can just about tuck the edge of the paper underneath the sides of the drawers, keeping the edges neat and tidy.

Happy Crafting.

Eileen Hull Favourite Projects 2018

O my goodness how on earth do I choose....................

 I love the colours of Eileen's collection of Color Box Blends, they are such pretty colours. I've used a mixture of the Journaling card dies, the Hearts and also the Flowers and Leaves. Both are great sets and also make fab stencils.

OK, so this is a little naughty.............I love this little Winter journal made for the Craft Stamper magazine January 2018 issue using the Passport Book Die

 And of course I had to have a Wrapped Journal and I love Jane Davenport supplies, so this deli paper is the perfect way to cover any of the journals quickly, and easily.

 The man in my life collects vintage clocking in machines, and yes this on is on the dining room wall. I created a holder to contain all the loose clocking in cards using the Card Organiser Die

And last but not least I love this journal using the Journal Die and lots of gorgeous papers from Canvas Corp Brands.

So there you have it, five of my favourite projects using Eileen's amazing dies.
Happy Crafting.

Day Five of Mama Makes Christmas

Welcome to Day Five of my Mama Makes Christmas series. Today I'm sharing hugs...............after all what would Christmas be without them

I built up my design with the large hugs stamp, and also a few smaller stamps of hearts and stars to take the design out further. I also added a couple of hand drawn elements as well.

Then back to the fabulous new shades of water colour, I love how bright these are, so cool.

Did I mention Metallic well....check out the beautiful soft gold when combined with the neon pink....... When dry I doodled with my Pigma Micron pen, well by now you know that it's my thing, and how I finish off nearly all of my projects.

Thank you for stopping by and I hope you've enjoyed this little series of Mama Makes Christmas.

Happy Crafting.
