Crafteezee Collection - In the Garden

Hello everyone 

I am here again today with some more inspiration using the lovely Crafteezee Collection.

First of all, for those who do not know, these are Limited Edition.  This month is 'IN THE GARDEN'. What a wonderful theme!¬   It is a collection assembled by Tracy, who tries to source ALL NEW items each month, focusing on her favourite things.  If there are any left over these go into the store, and if not just those that purchase the kit will receive. Each month is a different theme .   Don't miss out, hop on over HERE to order your kit.    Doesn't that sound fabulous!  There is also an additional facility using Paypal monthly subscription links.

So, onto what I made.  Today I am sharing a card I made using the Crafteezee 'In the Garden' Collection and selected other things from from the shop at plus items from my own stash.

It is simply years since a made a DL card.  Although this is not an actual DL size, it is the same shape and fits inside an A5 envelope due to the overhang.  

I started with the shape. The papers, frame heart peal string, butterflies and Scrapinec are all from the 'In the Garden Collection. 

The butterfly edge die is from

The pleated ruffle Tulle trim was trimmed down to a smaller size.  The additional lace, seam binding bows and flowers were also from

  I will list links below.

The Pion Songbird papers are available in the shop and can be found here

I have absolutely loved using this fabulous Collection!

Thanks for stopping by and happy Crafting

Crafteezee Collection In the Garden

Hi everyone,

Having a bit of spring feeling yet?
If not I think I can bring some.....
The in the Garden collection is perfect to use for this feeling....The sweet papers with the birds and the sweet soft colors are bringing the sun...the singing birds....the feeling that it's going to be spring soon. Can't wait.....

I had a little wooden birdhouse in my stash and decided to use this with the kit's papers and embellishments....Added a few of my own things and....spring it is....

I was cleaning my craftroom a bit and found the little eggs....I just had to use them....So sweet this little ones....Together with the flowers and the little scoop...and not to forget...the gorgeous vines from Scrapiniec....

It's a pity you can never make a pic to show exactly what your creation looks like... In real it's so lovely to hang somewhere in the livingroom . I think it's going to stay there until longgggggg after easter.

A birdhouse with another little just had to add this little charm to it....

I hope you love it.....I certainly do.....
Have a great weekend and see you

Precious Present

Not to say I am tired of winter....ok wait...I am!!!  LOL!!  I still enjoy doing winter cards but that's IT!!!  Only winter on cards so time for something springy this week.  I'm using the Dutch Doobadoo's flag shape art and a Whimsy image "Precious Present" from around Christmas time.  I thought she would be cute any time of year tho.

I was so excited to finally use my gold colored straws on this card so I draped some flowers and a bunch of moss around them.  Then I popped up a cute butterfly from Pion's "Scent of Lavender" papers.  The sentiment was also from the same collection.

Here I've made a Foamiran flower, colored the center using yellow ink, added some stamens and popped a pretty button on top.  Oh and I luuuuuuv those gorgeous metal leaves!  Wow can you ever bend them!!  They are somewhat fragile but easy to give them shape.

There's my make for this week!  So wonderful that the weekend is right around the corner and because we had a statutory holiday on Monday, it came even quicker!  Again, I hope you get some crafty time and thank you so much for stopping by!
