Jubilee table ideas

I have been working with the wonderful Ruby Rocket Vintedge papers from the Fruit Pixie as a member of the design team. Here are my ideas for table decorations for your Jubilee weekend. If you would like more information with instructions visit either the Fruit Pixie Facebook page or their blog.  What ever you are doing to join in the celebrations this weekend, have a great time! 

Why not make some cup cake decorations?

Or some cute napkin rings

Or even this envelope to hold the cutlery? All instructions on the Fruit Pixie blog and Facebook page. Everything I have used is available at the Fruit Pixie, why not take a look?

Cards for Operation Write Home blog hop

Altered Pages are taking part in the Operation Write Home Blog hop this year and as part of their design team I have contributed 2 cards using Altered pages collage sheets.

 For the dream card I used the sketch #58 and the following Altered Pages collage sheets -
                                                      Collage background 2 - 1724
                                                      Collage background 6 - 1724
                                                      Mixture of images - 2135

 For the Bingo card I used sketch #115 and used the following Altered Pages collage sheets-
                                                      Brown collage - 1714
                                                      Collage background 3 - 1724
                                                      Collage background 1 - 1724
                                                      French postage - 1636

  Altered Pages has hundreds of wonderful collage sheets and as you can have them sent digitally there is no  postage, which is great for all of us across the pond here in the UK!!

Dream of travel collage

Altered  Pages are holding a mixed media collage competition at the moment, closing date is the 15th may. It had to be collage, ink and metal. So here is my entry . I used several different Altered Pages collage sheets for the collage and main image. the canvas itself is coloured and the images ages with ink and the world and aircraft are metal.

Vintage Lady ATC

It was my turn again to do the blog post for the design team for Altered Pages so I came up with this Vintage lady ATC. The main lady image, butterfly and black boarder, which is the top part of the gate, are all from the white collage sheet. Altered Pages have a big collection of coloured themed collage sheets which makes designing a breeze, so why not take a look. One tip though, get yourself a nice cup of tea first, there are loads to look through and enjoy.
