'For Someone Special' - Swirled Lace Decorative Edge Dies from Tonic Studios

Well I'm back with another 'Throwback Tuesday' post where I share a project that I have forgotten to blog about (eeekkk) and this Tuesday I am sharing a project made using the Swirled Lace Decorative Edge dies.

I have taken the main die and cut it directly in to a piece of Craft perfect Pistachio card, mounting this slightly offset, on to my card blank. The die leaves a beautiful, embossed and de-bossed design in your card, creating a wonderful focal point.

'Believe in Angels' stampbord picture frame - Love 2 Create with Polkadoodles

Oh wowsers, it's been a wee while since I last posted and no fancy excuses other than I've been busy, busy, busy. For me personally, I love writing up blog posts and struggle to write a short post, and with that in mind, when time is at a premium, I would prefer not to write anything at all but find the time to write a detailed post. Maybe that needs to be one of my New Year's resolutions for the impending arrival of 2019 ...?!?!?

Also talking about being away for a while, it has been eons since I played along with the Love 2 Create challenge blog and I have missed creating along with the other other DT members. Excited dot com here to share a project I made for the Polkadoodles launch of the 'Believe in Angels' stamp sets on Hochanda on 31st October ...

Interactive page for an album using Legacy Keeper Wallet dies from Tonic Studios

WOW 1st December sneaked up way too fast ... shocked as forgot to get both myself and hubster an advent calendar. However last year we kept forgetting to open the doors on time and ended up stock piling chocolate, which in turn meant we felt a wee bit guilty eating it all at once, so put some aside .... to ... stockpile again 😂😆😋 Latter probably explains why I didn't remember advent calendars this year ....

This post is all about the Legacy Keeper Wallet dies from Tonic Studios and how you can use them to create interactive pages in your albums. Advance warning that this is quite a long post with lots of photographs and a video tutorial ...

Sneak peek of the projects I am going to share in this post ...

Colouring and creating backgrounds with Nuvo Crystal drops - TONIC THROWBACK THURSDAY

Morning everyone and Happy Thursday. So what have I chosen to share with you this TONIC THROWBACK THURSDAY and believe me I have a few projects to choose from! After much 'faffing' and indecision, I'm sharing a card where I have used Nuvo drops through a stencil and also to paint my images. This card was originally made for Tonic's 1st birthday on Hochanda in April! A wee while ago ...
