Elegant Masks-Scraps of Elegance and Gina's Designs

 Hi! Lynne here with  my latest project; I've been having fun decorating my new scrap room and decided to make these to hang on one of the doors using the Masks Shape Set.

I used pieces from the Mini Flourishes-Bella Set and the Feather Shape Set and used papers and embellishments from the November Scraps of Elegance kit, "Sweet Sentiments"  to finish them.

                     I painted the pieces with acrylic paint then brushed them lightly with white glitter paint.The flowers were fussy cut from one of the lovely papers in the kit.

                The fussy-cut dangles from  one of the gorgeous Blue Fern Studios papers were finished with Glossy accents to add strength and a metallic look. The colours and florals coordinate beautifully with the Victorian Wall shelf I finished last month with the October Scraps of Elegance kit, so my room is looking very feminine and pretty if I do say so myself!

Sisters...for Tresors Deluxe November Challenge

hi-check out this lovely fall mood board from the Tresors Deluxe Challenge Facebook page:

I loved the warm feel of the colours, the rain drops and the bird, and incorporated all of these into my page. The photo is of our two kittens, Honey and Sweetie, who are litter sisters, and also best friends.

I coloured my cream lace with mists and altered the background paper with texture paste, mists, inking  and stamping, then added Kaisercraft Droplets to simulate the raindrops from the mood board.

You can find their challenge group here:

Thanks so much for visiting; have a super week!

Well, I'm thrilled to say that this little album is my first finished handmade Christmas gift for 2014! My daughter recently moved away from home and has emailed me asking for several recipes, so I thought it would be nice for her to have her favourites compiled together, and this Cutout Cover Mini Album was absolutely perfect!


 I painted the incredibly cute cover piece with charcoal grey acrylic paint, then stamped with Versamark ink and embossed it with black detail embossing powder to give it dimension and shine.


I used mostly Basic Gray's Out of Print line to complete the album pages, which you can see here. I left the last page blank for her to add new recipes she discovers (we are both avid bakers and cake decorators!)


Thanks so much for stopping by, and I wish you a sweet and creative day!
