ATC inspired by the nature

 Hi Friends,

I love nature and woods. They simply inspire me. Always when I snuffer with a lack of ideas I simply go for a walk to the woods, on the beach or to the beautiful Westport House. An hour with amazing natyral scenery always help and unlock hundreds of ideas. Today I have for you tiny ATC forms inspired by the nature.

14 Craft Bar June Kit - Gift bag


I do try my best to use all of the elements in kits more so when they are so beautifully packaged. Within the Vintage Gentleman kit is a paper bag containing all sorts of Haberdashery items which meant that I had the perfect base to make a gift bag.

I folded over the top 1" of the bag and then added a strip of paper to both sides before punching a hole in the centre and adding faux ring reinforcers made with a 1/2" circular punch and co-ordinating papers from the main collection.  

I cut a mat to fit onto the bag front distressing the edges with my scissors and then drawing uneven lines around the edge using a brown fine linner pen. I find adding three lines that randomly cross each other works well for me.

I then adhered two of the self adhesive vintage stickers from the embellishment tin in place - it is quite difficult to lift the backing off using finger nails so I called on the help of a pokey tool from the front edge to help get me started.

I then layered the phone booth cut from the Sherlock Holmes sheet of elements in place and added the cartouch using two layers of mount board to lift it away from the surface. Included in the pack is a paper clay lamp post which is beatiful in its own right and all I did was add some brass wax to highlight the details before taking a knife and cutting it apart so that if would fit on my project as shown. I then added the vintage phone elements from the embellishment tin tucking them in under the cartouche.

Finally I added string from the packaging of the kit and crochet ribbon through the top of the bag to keep it closed before adding the beautiful orange shabby ribbon to the front of the bag.

Folding Photo Frame

  Hello, dear friends! Today I'd like to show you something new. Long ago I picked a cute chipboard frame base but couldn't find a proper style suitable for family photo to finish it. And finally all the stars have come together! The matching paper was found, reach greenery outside brought a lot of summer inspiration and voila - I've got a new piece of interior just for myself :)
