Spring Flowers at Noor Design UK


Hello Everyone,

I'm late for my own challenge, lol.  We've had a few days away in the countryside with my lovely sister and brother in law and I'm still in chilled mode so I'm a day late.

Well as you might have guessed it's Spring Flowers at Noor Design UK and I couldn't wait to play with the Craft and You papers, they are sooo scrummy.  I have used the May release Dutch Doobadoo Template    , due in stock at the end of this week.


Did you notice the lace.  This is just in stock at Noor Design UK and there are alot more to come, along with the flowers.


I have used open roses in 25mm, 20mm and Hip Rosebuds in 2-tone pink along with the glass strawberries, all links at the bottom of the post.

The leaves were diecut using Vintage Flourish 0046.

The edges of the papers had a dusting of gesso :)



The Vintage Image is from the Craft and You Vintage Image Sheet, link at the bottom and layered under the gorgeous Scrapiniec Window, loving these chipboard embellishments.

The butterfly was cut from the Open Heart with Butterfly die, again links at the bottom.


The sentiment is also from the Scrapiniec "For My Best Friend" and had a light dusting of gesso.


I tucked a little cheese cloth under the image.


A peek at the inside, can you see that gorgeous lace Adele :)

A sad goodbye .......


Good morning everyone,

It's a very sad day as this is my last post for Live and Love Crafts.  With opening my own online store just over 18 months ago and still working full time and I don't have the time to commit to a certain day's posting.
A huge thankyou to you all for all the comments on my cards on the LLC Blog/Facebook, my blog and personal messages on my work.  I'm still on the Pion Design Team so you will still see me using Pion Design papers :)


I'm sharing a card made using the new May Dutch Doobadoo release called Triptech, these are due in next week but you can pre-order HERE or click on the links at the bottom of the post.

The papers are from Pion Design's Scent of Lavender collection.  I used the Pion Palette Purple V for the base.

This is the front of the card.  I used the LDRS Creative Basics Edges die set to create the stitched wave and carried it to the right hand panel and created little pockets.  I cut the sentiment in the left hand pocket from the paper 




On the right hand side I have added flowers to the centre of the prima clock face and added a little gesso.

I used the tag die to cut the lavender plant pot from the 

The chipboard flourishes are from the Scrapiniec set    , loving these.


I kept the inside quite plain.  I love love love the bird so I made him centre stage and added the Srapiniec oval frame and matching border to the bottom.  

Each panel was edged with pearl string.





Hope you like it :)
