A Layout with Laura

Hi, Laura here!  I have been procrastinating tidying my desk for a few weeks.  I took it one step further by deciding to make a layout with items from my desktop only.  I shove stuff on my desk all the time - packaging, mail shots with nice colours, ephemera/sweets wrappers, extra cameo cuts etc.

I have a few bits of lace near my craft mat all the time - today it was some cotton Morlaix in white and some viscose Volcan in mint.  I also pulled a few offcuts of sheer Swiss dots ribbon.

I added some flicks of ink to the background and I'm happy with how it has turned out!

Thanks for stopping by!

cards and diploma!

I made these diploma and cards for two children who passed a very good year in grammar school with general average of 18,14 and 15,99. (In France, we still have notes). School forgot to congratulate them so as I am a teacher, I did it!

The boy likes red so I used fresh stripe ribbon . It exists in 9mm, 16mm and 25mm.


To close diploma I am using I love knitting because she loves knitting and heart ribbon in red.

This is girl card in navy fresh stripe ribbon.
They were very happy with and fix their diploma on their wall!

You could see more pictures HERE,
Have great holidays!

Hi, Carol S. here today with a small wooden box I made.

I used the beautiful lace, Patchwork Rose - Lace - Pink,
to decorate the bottom.
This is the perfect lace to add to a box or a card.
The quality is amazing.

On the top of the box I just did a crackle effect and added 
some flowers and a butterfly.

Hope this will inspire you to make boxes too.

There are more pictures and details on my blog here.
So please pop over to my blog.

Strawberry Bunting

Hi Chaps, Laura here today.

Following on from my strawberry necklace today I have some strawberry bunting...

I made a digital cut file and cut several strawberries out of watercolour card.  I added some colour once they were cut.  (You can find the free cut file here if you'd like to make your own bunting!)

I took a long length of Morlaix lace and attached the strawberries at regular intervals.  You could hand sew them on, but I chose to whiz them through the sewing machine.

And here they are strung up.  Perfect for summer parties!

Thanks for joining me today
