Thank you to my teacher

This is a card for my teacher in College. In two weeks time, I finish my class and my colleagues and I decided to give a handmade card to our tutor.

Firstly, I put a clay embellishment and I decorated the centre of the card with flowers and a small butterfly.  

To make flowers, I used a beautiful die Cinch and Go IV

At the bottom, I added a decorative element "Thank You" using Elegant Occasion Sentiments Glorious Glimmer Hot Foil Classic Plates by Becca Feeken 

Thank you and have a nice day

To decorate my card I added a bow with jewellery in the centre. 
No flowers this time.

But It's "Not" Christmas Blog Hop

Don't you just love a die that does double duty?  We thought so!  Today we're are having a blog hop to show you how the dies in The Charming Christmas Collection can be used year round; after all, it's not Christmas.  No worries, Christmas is coming and we'll press A Charming Christmas back into service this year but in the meantime, please join us for some year-round inspiration and a giveaway at the bottom of the post.

It's Not Christmas but About A Charming Christmas

Becca designed A Charming Christmas with lovely romantic frames and shapes and with charms.  Leave the charms in the package and you have a lovely 'everyday' die that is begging to be used all year round.  Hop around with us as we reintroduce you to the non-Christmas side of A Charming Christmas.

My Projects For Today.

The die I'm showing today is a Charming Tag Pocket from a Charming Christmas Collection designed by Becca Feeken.

On my card, I put a mini pocket made from two pieces of die cut glued together. Inside is put a mini book with wishes. The right side of my card I decorated by a beautiful pattern from Charming Tag Pocket. A small bow and little flowers are added to make the card more subtle.


Stamps: none
Ink: none
Paper: "The Promise" 6x6 Premium Paper Pad by Katie Pertiet, gold mirror paper, natural white, embossed paper,

Amazing Paper Grace May Die of the Month Blog Hop

This month's Nostalgic Serenade Card Frame Die Set is absolutely amazing. It is a little bigger than most of dies. From the same die, you can prepare a big A5 card or you have a possibility to create a beautiful 3D project, such as a box, a book cover or basket.

My Project Today:

I prepared a box for a card. Firstly, I made a base from a white paper. I cut off the longer part of the die cut and glued it to the base as a handle.  
Then I made a rest of the box. On the top, I cut out the hole using the second die (in terms of size) from the set. I took a rectangle, bigger paper than the hole on the top and cut out the decorative pattern. I glued it underneath the hole. I cut three pieces of the frame with a hole in the centre, from white and gold paper. I adhered them alternately on the top using 3D tape.
As you can see I decorated the box with a bow and some flowers.

My second project:

My second project for this hop is a card.
The cover is made from two pieces of die cut (white and pink) adhered using 3D tape. Front and back of the card I connected using a narrow ribbon. I decorated a card using flowers and leaves.

Supply List:

Paper: white 250gsm paper, digital paper, gold paper
Accessories: ribbon, pearls, flowers, 3D tape, Platinum Die Cutting and Embossing Machine, May Die of the Month

For this month's Die of the Month, we cut it up and folded it up!
More inspiration is just a click away.  Stop by with each Creative Team Member to see how they manipulated this die to come up with a unique project for you to try!
