Decorated travel case

The more I use my Silhouette Cameo the more I love it. One of the things I love to do with it is make 3d projects. So as soon as I saw this cute little travel case I had to make it. I also knew exactly what I wanted to make it with. The Fruit Pixie, who I design for, had just sent me the new Couture Creations Vintage Rose garden papers and I knew they would be perfect.

The papers are 6x6 and you get 48 double sided sheets so are perfect for any project

You also get these lovely vintage postcards and stamps and words you can cut out and collage

Now do you think I will get everything in here for my holiday to Austria?

I think I need to make a larger one!

If you would like to see the papers they can be found here -

White rabbit door hanger

The Fruit Pixie sell the wonderful Visible image stamps and one of my favourite stamp sets is this White rabbit set from their Alice in wonderland series, although to be honest the whole series is great! So when I also received a set of the new Creative expressions MDF door hangers as well I knew they were a match made in heaven!

The stamps are high quality stamps that stamp like a dream and are easy to colour in too

I even stamped using the Cosmic Shimmer chalk paints with them to give the background extra interest.

For the pocket watch I used the Artistic stamper time and keys set, also available from The Fruit Pixie.

To finish it off I used one of the Fruit Pixies clock charms hung from a ribbon bow.

All the products, except the diamond boarder, that is a Tim Holtz strip die and the labels I used to stamp the quote and tick tock onto, they were cut on my silhouette, are available from the Fruit Pixie online shop -

Lucky cat wedding charm

As I was saying in the previous post we had a family wedding the other weekend. It was always a tradition to give the bride a lucky charm after she was married, so I thought it would be nice to make the bride a lucky black cat.

   I found a cat shape in the Silhouette shop. Cut him out twice in chipboard and twice in black card and stuck all the layers together. Their save the date and invitation had a piece of ribbon , the wedding colour theme, on it so I pinched the save the date piece and popped it round his neck with a tiny shell charm from the random button collection from the Fruit Pixie.

I think the tradition has died out because I was the only one who gave her one and I think she thought I was slightly mad! I think she liked him though as he was hung on their wooden name over the fireplace.
