Hearts, flowers and pearl chains


Using the new Swirl Branches and Happy Birthday

Hello Peeps, many thanks for all your kind comments on yesterdays fairy card.

There are going to be lots of new Tattered Lace releases coming up on Create and Craft and Ideal World, tomorrow sees a new Four Day Deal and Tuesday a new Pick of the Day. Here are a few of the samples I made for the shows.

Also I need to answer lots of enquiries about the Tattered Laced Blog which has been a bit quiet recently, along with the TL website it has been undergoing a revamp but will be active again very soon.

I would also like to enter the top card into this weeks Snippets Playground, it was a useful way of using up some snippets of paper and although this fold really needs one larger piece, I managed to match up two offcuts and hide the join in the folds.

Using the new Window Scene, I cut it twice and reversed one to extend the scene and have two cats sitting together looking out into the stamped Pan Pastel garden

There have been a few sneak peeps of the Pearl Chain edging that is the TL 2016 signature design. The Pick of the Day will see the launch of the decorative Pearl frame sets (this one is from the oval set) that match the Essential Peal frames which launched last week (the courier apparently lost mine so I have not able to use them in these samples), they are so incredibly delicate yet cut like butter

The heart Pearl Frame set

The Oval set again and at the bottom one of the oh so delicate border dies and a splattering of brushos in the background

The Window Scene again

The rectangle Pearl Frame set

The heart set again - might be my favourite from this release and another of the delicate border dies

As always my thanks for your visit and hope you all have a good week.
