*NEW* Inlovearts Dies With Projects/Examples



Hi Crafter's
I am back today to share with you some gorgeous Dies i got send from the fabulous INLOVEARTS. I was so excited to get these dies as they never disappoint. I love the size of there Dies and i also like the fact that they are a bit different from the 'norm'. I think my favourite is the Tropical style flower set and also the Spooky Halloween House! How cute is that!!!









  I made a shadow box for the Flowers Dies and i love how it turned out. I made my shadow box in a different way as i wanted it to be a bit larger. I prefer the new method i used and i also think its a lot easier. I will upload a tutorial for it next week and maybe you can make one yourself.

Please check out my Youtube video and you can see the Dies in more detail. You can find the link at the end of this post.

Until Next time....
Bye for now

Love Ann xx

Alinacraft Mini Album PLUS Tips on construction


Hi Crafter's!
I uploaded a tutorial on Youtube the other day on Alinacraft's new mini album die set. It took me a little bit to figure  out what all the bits were for etc so i thought it would be a good idea to upload a tutorial. This Album is so cute! I am really pleased with how it turned out and i love the 'Underwater/Mermaid' theme. I hope you like it to :-)

One of the great things about this die set is that you get SO much with it!! You get word dies, embellishments and lots more. This would be a perfect set for anyone who has not done a Mini Album before and also someone who maybe does not have many dies. Its perfect for all of those. Everything cuts beautifully and the dies make all the needed score lines to. You also get all the layering dies to decorate your Album/Pockets. It makes a total of 4 pages/pockets so plenty of room for little photos.

You can purchase this die by clicking this MINI ALBUM DIE link.

Thank you for stopping by my blog and i will be back very soon with lots more projects!

Love Ann xx

Gorgeous Projects Using AlinaCraft Dies!



Hi Everyone,

After i uploaded my new Alinacraft Design Team bundle video yesterday, i really could not stop playing with the dies!! In my opinion this is one of the best releases i have seen! Every die is truly beautiful and so versatile. I said i would be sharing some projects so that is what i am doing today. Please keep your eyes peeled as i will be uploading more this week :-) I hope you like what i came up with so far.

Adorable Mermaid Gift Box

I Love this Mermaid style gift box and it would be perfect for a Little Girls Birthday Party etc. You also get a cute 'Foot' die with it so you could also maybe make this for a new baby. It really is a very versatile die as you can add any decoration or 'Theme' you like making it for any occasion you wish!!.

Beautiful Tag Die/Ribbon Sampler 

I love the fancy vines that cut out of this die. A really cool thing is that you can use this die to gift Hair slides etc. It has a small rectangle piece that cuts 2 slits down the side of the die, this enables you to slip a hair clip/slide etc underneath! How cool is that??.
Also the 2 bows in the picture are made from the gorgeous A4 glitter fabric sheets that Alina has in her store. You can also use your regular dies to cut through it! This glitter fabric would be perfect to make your own Hair clips.

Adorable Key Chain Die 

I Love this Key Chain Die! Its just so cute! You can also make it into a shaker which is what i did with mine. This would make a perfect gift! If you have Alphabet dies you could also pop someones Initial on the front or the back! I will definitely be making some more of these Key Chains.

I hope you have enjoyed the projects i made and please check out my Youtube video. As always you can find the link at the end of this post. If you wish to purchase any of the dies, you can find all the links in the description of my video. Please make sure that you are viewing it on Youtube and not on this Blog otherwise you will not be able to access the links.

Burlesque Style card (Featuring KSCRAFT)



Hi Crafter's!!
I just wanted to share a card that i made. Its not my usual style of card but i am really happy with how it turned out! Its sort of a Burlesque type card i think. Plus i love the Black and Red together!
This happens to be one of my Design Team projects for KSCRAFT.

The corset is a new die they sent me as well as the Lattice style Background. They are both Beautiful Dies and also very large in size. I love the Corset as you get a few dies so you can create a different look if you want to.

The corset die measures approx 4 1/2" x 3 1/4" and the Lattice background die measures 6 3/4" x 5 1/2" !! wow that is huge! With the Corset Die you get 6 pieces which includes 3 bows and 3 corset dies.

If you wish to purchase the Corset die or the lattice background, here are the links:

I hope you like my card!

Thank you for stopping by and i will be back tomorrow :-)

Easy Shell Style Gift Bag



Hi Everyone,

I posted this tutorial on Youtube a couple of days ago & i said i would also type up a blog post to. I am very pushed for time this week as i have all my Monthly craft boxes to pack up and ship out. There is quite a few Design Team projects i need to complete to....No rest for the wicked :-)

I love this Mermaid Die from Alinacraft!! I have used it loads lately & it really is the most cutest Die. Before i forget, here is the link to the 2 products i used to create this Shell bag from Alinacraft.

Mermaid Die https://www.aliexpress.com/store/product/DIE-CUT-METAL-CUTTING-DIES-cut-build-up-sea-mermaid-Alinacraft-Scrapbook-paper-craft-album-card/2348287_33008329121.html?spm=2114.12010612.8148356.5.26b27fdfeIXnH1


Large Doily Die https://www.aliexpress.com/item/DIE-CUT-METAL-CUTTING-DIES-6pc-stitch-doily-circle-flower-lace-round-Scrapbook-paper-craft-handmade/32932876320.html?gps-id=6490561&scm=1007.16233.119941.0&scm_id=1007.16233.119941.0&scm-url=1007.16233.119941.0&pvid=01e96d37-dfc7-43d7-84ff-b3f04642dc53

Plus if you are really quick there is 30% off at the minute!! A real Bargain so don't miss out.


I think her Tail looks really cool!! To achieve this 'wet' look i used Glossy Accents. I cut the Tail out of some ombre paper that i purchased from Hobby Craft then i just covered it with Glossy Accents and let it dry for a couple of hours.

This Shell Bag is really easy to make and so cute. I think it would be great as a party favour or even just a Gift Bag for someone who loves Mermaids.



Make sure to check out my Youtube Tutorial to find out how i made this cute Gift bag. You can find the Video link at the end of post.

Thank you for stopping by and i will be back on Wednesday with another Video.

Bye for now
Love
