I've made a calendar page for January with one of the new Tilda's from the new winter collection.
I also used part of a fantastic stamp set (Stampendous Jumbo frame Cameo set) that I searched the whole world for !!! lol But sadly it's discontinued !! :(......
Luckily I found the last one in the world in the USA but they wouldn't ship to the UK
but one of my lovely DT Girls Stephanie who lives in America was kind enough to get it for me and ship it over to the UK ... I'm blessed to have such wonderful friends.
The part of the set I used here is the Larger floral frame its gorgeous isn't it ?

Bragging about a "Whiter Shade of Pale"

Evening all....I made this little Brag book for the Magnolia Down Under Challenge as they have a Book theme Challenge and decorated to fit the Mid-week Magnolias Challenge who theme is "Dreaming of a White Christmas.
I coloured Tilda with Copic Markers, the flowers started out as some plain cheap white Prima flowers which I painted with white pearl paint and then heat embossed with Stampendous Shabby Chic white embossing powder then I spritzed them with Tattered  Angel Pearl Glimmer mist and added a crystal to the centre of each.
I cut the leaves with a Martha Stewart punch, I punched them from Basic Grey distressed dark white paper I also used another Basic Grey distressed paper to make the cover of the Brag book. I cut the Bazzill pages and rounded the corners and then stitched them altogether up the spin of the Brag book.
the Silver wax embellishment I made using a kit from 7Gypsies, the Button is from a basic Grey pack and the sentiment is from Cats Life Press.
I am also entering my book in to these challenges;
