DooHickeys Grooms Bow and Heart Tag and Vintage square for the shape
Sizzix Doily

A Vintage Tag

Hi There
Its Friday....Are you having that Friday feeling yet??

Im here today to share my penultimate Challenge for Live and Love Crafts.
I cant believe how fast it has gone.

 Sandy's challenge for us was 'Luck Of The Irish'
Ive been racking my brains all week wondering what I could do as I have nothing suitable for this challenge.
Then while sat staring at my desk, staring me in the face, was the new grass and flower die from the latest Doohickey clubkit .
What a fab shape and in my favour had a Shamrock look about it :D

I watercoloured Sakura Tilda with DI's and coated with a matt PPA to give a vintage look. I wanted it to smudge slighty to give a warmer vintage glow effect. 
The rest of what I used Ive listed below.
Enjoy the rest of your day :D
See you soon
Hugs Debbie

A Tilda Shadow Box

Hi There
Today it's my day over at LLC while filling in for my teamie Diana and this week Sandy's challenge for us was anything goes.

Ive made you a little tutorial on how Ive made this 3D Picture Frame Box
So heres how I made it
Cut three squares of White Bazzill Cardstock
 9'' x 9''
6'' x 6''
4'' x 4''

  On the 9 inch square score at 1/2 inch, 1 1/2 inch, 2 1/2 and 3 1/2 inch.
Turn around and repeat on all four sides until it looks like the diagram above.
(Ive lined in Ink)

Cut out a 1 1/2'' square from all four corners and using a craft knife carefully cut diagonally the centre 4 inch square as in the red lines above. This is going to be the centre piece of the 3D frame.

Fold on all of the scored lines. The centre square inwards and the outer pieces outwards to tuck under.

On the back glue the four corners and adhere the 6'' square.

 Now turn back to the front and fold the the cut diagonal pieces inwards and place the 4'' square inside.
and adhere the 6x6 inch square to the back

 Choose Designer papers of your choice and decorate the 3D frame. Make four 4 inch x 1 inch panels for the inner panels as this will add as extra strength
♥ ♥ ♥
 Once the whole of the  3D frame has been covered, we now can decorate the inside. For Tilda's dressing table drawers and using DooHickey Pixie Box Die, cut out three times.
 Paint the metal ornate frame and legs white and rub away to give a shabby chic effect.
Fold and erect the 3 pixie box cut outs adhere them together.
 As the back of the drawers will be adhered to the 3D frame we only need two legs. Using a strong glue attach them to the bottom Pixie box and the two drawers handles to the upper two. I have also added white corragated card to the front and sides of the drawers for extra strength.
 Before adding the ornate frame, adhere the drawers inside the 3Dframe and allow to dry.  Place the ornate frame in place and decorate with flowers and ornaments.

I coloured Rose Scented Tilda with Distress reInkers
DooHickeys used were Box Coffee Lace and Rose Leaf

The rest I added below but on the step by step the paper was slightly different.
Please email me if you have any questions.

I hope my tutorial was easy for you to follow.
Thankyou for stopping by
Enjoy the rest of your weekend
