Hello dear followers and friends,
It's December 1st (already!!!) and we're starting the count down to Christmas at the LLC blog with our advent calender of inspiration and surprises every day until Christmas!
We also have a new fun challenge for you this month.
Our theme is
Anything but a card!
Please stop by the LLC blog for some beautiful vintage inspiration by the DT and our talented guest designers- and join in for a chance to win a £25 voucher to the LLC store!
Here's my creation. I decorated the front and back of a journal/calender book for 2013 as a Christmas gift for a friend!
I have used a Little Sweeties image from Pion Design, the papers are form the Maja Design Coffee collection, these are Havrerutor, Chocolate Coconut Squares. I also used
1905 from the Vintage Summer Basic collection.
The flowers are from Kort og Godt and WOC (roses), The Pearls are Melissa Frances. I used plenty of lace and trim, these are the "Antique Cream" Lace Antique Belle, and the Vintage Scallop Lace Trim. I do love pins (!!!) and these are the Vintage Pearl Pin and the
Berries Pins. The charms and corrugated cardboard are from my stash.
I cut a Magnolia Doohickey So wrapped Swirly diecut in sheet music, and I used a page from an old book . The Seam binding is the "Plum Sorbet" Seasonal Shabby Seam Binding from the LLC store. This gorgeous Round Vintage Photo Frame Pendant is filled with a dicut circle form the LLC seam binding cover !
This lovely ribbon is the "Oyster Cream" Rhinestones Lace and the Large Metal Corner is painted with Tim Holtz crackle paint. These pins are Vintage Heart Pins and the swirl is cut from a Memorybox heart die. I have also used a Martha Stewart punch.
I think it turned out pretty nice. Hope you like it too!
I do hope you are inspired to join us in the December challenge over at the Live & Love crafts' inspiration and Challengeblog.
