Hi There, it's Anita here with my last post for January ( Crikey where HAS that month gone??)
Before Christmas I bought a few sheets of one of the recent Simple Stories collections, Love and Adore....they are really vibrant and rather funky!
I have got some of the sheets put by for creating a class I have got in mind, but I wanted to make an extra Christmas present for my Daughter and her Fiance and this Collection was perfect for it.
I bought an 8 x 8 box frame and some Scrabble letter tiles and just picked out a few crystal embellishments from my stash to use.
I covered the back of the frame using a sheet of Hello Beautiful.
The black background is covered with a mass of teeny tiny brightly coloured hearts and I felt this worked perfectly to combine with the letter tiles.
I started off by picking out all the letter tiles I needed to complete the words I wanted to create and set upon linking them all together. When I had them how I want them I them transferred them to the frame and stuck them all down.
I also had a sheet of 3 x 4 Journalling Card Elements, there are many different little panels and bits that can be cut up, so I picked the panel I liked which I stuck in the top left hand side of the frame and also cut a few teeny hearts, which I raised on foam pads and added under the tiles.
I then just popped on a few crystals in random places to finish it off.
I was delighted on Christmas Day when they opened it and said how much they liked it!
Well that's it from me for January.....I look forward to seeing you all in Feb!
