Sneeky peep No 2 - Laura Ashley

Hello there I thought I would give you another sneeky peep of some of the demo items I have made. This time I have used the new Laura Ashley Love Song range. These items put me way out of my comfort zone as they are not the normal things I use, bit too flowery for me. Having said that I really like the samples that I made and some of the papers are actually nice. I think they make great cards for older people and I am actually going to use the stuff to make my MIL a card for her 81st birthday with them, as I think she will appreciate it.

Again I have tried to make more than just cards, and also done a different style of card for variation. We have some gorgeous PM pearlesent card blanks on offer on the day for only 99p per pack, so I have used these to show them off.

This card was made with the PM card blank, Laura Ashley die cut decoupage set, papers & brads, All put together with some simple matting and layering and finished with a gorgeous piece of ribbon.

This card was again made with the Laura Ashley decoupage set & papers. I folded back the front of the card on itself to give a zig zag shape, again was put together with some simple matting and layering.

This is actually a wallet, I cut the front of the card in half and then with the fold at the top, stuck the piece back on as the bottom along 3 of the edges. I left the top edge open to slide things in. The decoupage flower is only stuck on at the bottom and the top flap folds in behind the flower head. Finished of with a brad.

This little tag was made using the Big Shot and 3 dies flower, Circle & scalloped circle (something else I am gonna be demoing, we will be doing a half price deal on sizzix dies ). I again used the Laura Ashley papers and brads and the PM cardstock.

Last but not least is a little gift box I have made, so simply buy using one of the Sq card blanks cut in half, scored, folded and stuck together. Finished off with a Laura Ashley decoupage flower on the top and ribbon round the edges of the lid.

Hope you have liked seeing a different style of things from me and also something other than just cards. Will be back soon with some Forever Friends sneeky peeps!!!
