Dreamees Fairy Box

Good Morning , I hope you are all well. Its  rather cold here in Notts today, but I think thats what we can expect at this time of year, at least there isnt any snow for us yet.

Today I am blogging a box I made a few weeks ago ,I have only just had time to take pictures, how bad is that?

Everything I have used here is from Dreamees, the website is http://www.dreamees.org.uk

I designed the box myself, which is not a tradional box where the lid goes to the bottom , but only half way which I thought was nice and hopefully next year I will make another box with the same template and have it on show in our house.

I then used Papers, toppers and embellishments from Dreamees Christmas Memories cdrom.

The extra embellishments like the snowflakes, have been used from the Dreamees Cuttables cd roms which are for use with the Craft robo/ Silhoutte Cameo etc , in fact any cutter which will cut GSD files.

I also used quite a bit of glitter with it being a christmas box.

I hope you like it.

Thanks for looking.

Good evening, I hope you are all well.

I have been thinking for a little while I must get my blog more updated , what I am now going to do , is instead of dating each blog entry I will do what most of the other bloggers do and name each entry. So from the next post there will be a title of theblog entry.

I hope you all like this idea , you will find it easier to find a project that way I am sure.

Right thats it and look forward to the new way.

Take Care Carol xx

Good evening crafters. I hope you are all well. Everything is great here at Dreamees HQ, we are getting all excited for the NEC , this time next week we will have had a first day there. Im sure we will both be very tired but so excited to do it again.

Anyway getting back to this post, I am blogging some projects which we did at the Dreamees Workshop at Craftstation local to us at Kirkby in Ashfield.

Here they are , we started with the Snowman card which has all been made from the Dreamees Christmas Memories cd rom .

Then we went onto the Recipe of Christmas  card, again using the Christmas Memories cd rom also the recipe of christmas stamp.

Last but not least we made the beautiful blue box which used the same cd rom and the Baubles stamp set. This box can be used to keep little trinkets in, sweets or similar treats.

I hope you like them also we are now giving our online customers the chance to buy these workshops packs including the free cd rom Christmas Memories , you can see all the products at http://www.dreamees.org.uk

Enjoy, Carol xx

We are also having a demonstrator at this show, you may reconize her name from Create and Craft – its Amanda Bateman – she is so lovely and I am sure she will use Dreamees products to their full potential and give us and you all some inspiration. Amanda is as excited as we are.

Saturday 22nd September 2012.

Good afternoon everyone , I do hope you are all well. I have had a few aches and pains this week, but it doesnt stop me doing things, so therefore got quite a bit of crafting done while I have been sitting alot ha ha.

Here are a few cards I have made I will give you a run down on how I made each one.

The first one being very Bright yes Purple and yellow, I covered the base card in purple backing paper,all used from the Dreamees Back to basics cd rom available at www.dreamees.org.uk as are all the items I have used in making the following cards. I then cut 9 pieces of my chosen backing papers into squares, to make the faux patchwork effect, which I attached to the base card. Then I added the lace strip, across the top of the card and made a bow with the same lace,  attached this to the right hand side of the lace. I then stamped the Large Flower 2 ,again from Dreamees in the  Mustard Seed distress ink pad and coloured the centre in the same yellow, cut this flower out and attached to the main card in the bottom left hand corner, then I used embellishments with the die cut leaves and swirls again available from www.dreamees.org.uk.

 

The second card, is one of my faves I have made for a long time in my opinion. The papers are from Dreamees Elegance cd. I first of all covered the base card with the stripe backing paper which give s a lovely base to the card, I then matt and layered a piece of the pink and green paper , added it to the right hand side of the base card, then again matt and layered a strip of the backing papers and attached across the card hanging over the edge a little and then made the flag effect on each end. I cut out an oval scalloped and straight edge nestabilities die, stamped Dreamees Baubles stamp in the centre of the straight oval using Victorian velvet Distress Ink Pad, and while in the oval die I distressed the base of this oval to give a shadow effect, added glue using the quickie glue pen, added glamour dust silver to give the sparkle to the Bauble stamp. matt and layered these two ovals together, attached to the base card slightly to the left of the card. I cut another scalloped nestie out in the green backing paper and stamped the Recipe of christmas stamp again from dreamees (this stamp is amazing) added the oval to the top left hand corner of the main card. I then stamped 3, small flowers 1 in the victorian velvet cut out attached to the right hand side added 3 small green button s to the centre of each  flower. I cut 3 different sized snowflakes from Dreamees Cuttables range of cds available for the craft robo/cameo machine cutting gsd files, just rubbed the victorian velvet ink pad over them all attached these on top of each other added a pink gem to the centre. The card was then complete.

 

Thank you for taking the time to read this entry on my blog hope to see you all again soon.

Love Carol xx
