I am a full-time working mum who works shifts with a son Richard aged 23 and a daughter Emma aged 21. I have been married to my lovely Husband Paul for 26 years. My passion in life, besides my family, is papercrafting, especially cardmaking, although I "dabble" in scrapbooking. I was introduced to Jewellery making in 2012 and found another addiction :) I have been cardmaking since 2006. I am also a bit of a tigger freak!

Secret Crafter Saturday Challenge #101

These are my DT projects for this week's challenge on Secret Crafter Saturday Challenge which this week is set by me! As today is the official launch of new Manga Images from Secret Crafter I chose a theme of:-

ANYTHING GOES

We want to see any projects with any theme as long as it's crafty :)

Take a look at the challenge blog to see the other girlies creations and to join us.

As there are four new images then I made four projects so this is a long post but hope you like them.

This gift box is made using Angel Boy. He's just tooooo cute :) I decided to make a box and experimented with the 2,4,6,8 box but made a lid for it too.

This card is made using Bird Fairy. Although she is not a traditional Christmas image I thought she would make a lovely Christmas card. I got to use my new Lace scallop nesties too!

This card is made using Italian Girl. She's such a lovely happy image. I made a shaped card using the largest curved rectangle nesties. With layering the curved nesties and also lables four nesties it makes a fabulous background for this image. I had a play with my Bow-easi template too and found it works best with stiffer ribbon.

My last card is made using Ice skating couple. Now these would also make a fabulous Christmas card but I wanted to make an anniversary card so decided to use just tones of brown in the colouring and papers. The papers, funnily enough, are from a Christmas pack but are quite general too.

Hello Jane,

The Angel Boy box is sweeeet! The pink and blue pastels are a great bet for any occasion! Your ice skating couple is also my favorite. Love the neutral tones you picked and the backing paper is gorgeous - a perfect compliment. It's a pleasure to be on board the team with you.

Have a nice weekend,
Lily
