Vintage Card using August kit from the Crafty Alley

Hi All,

This is a vintage style birthday card I have created using all elements from The August kit at the Crafty Alley Shop. This kit came with 50 12x12 K&Co pages, loads of embelishments and goodies. If you would like to purchase the September kit, check out, they are brilliant value. 
Firstly I distessed the papers with Vintage photo.
I Stamped the image and embossed it using copper embossing powder, as I don't have any copic markers or promarkers, I coloured the image using distress ink!
I then die cut the heart and key with chipboard and embossed them using the copper again. I added the flower and the tag (its a 90th birthday card!)

This was also my first attempt at an easel card, which I really enjoyed doing.

I hope you like it, please leave any comments or suggestions.

Thanks for stopping by

Hi Guys,

This is my first entry to a challenge. I really enjoyed using this sketch, thanks Michelle. I have used the August Kit from the Crafty Alley shop, which was so nice to work with. Everything is from the kit, although I think the flower may have been from the July kit!

Anyways, I hope you like it x

Scrapzville's February Swap for Donna!

Hi there,

This is the mini book I made for Donna as part of the February's Swap for Scrapzville. The theme was to have two lines from a song that had the word Love mentioned in it. Unfortunately, Donna hasn't received it yet, so I'm really worried about it, but hoping it has just been delayed in the post. If not, I'll make her another one. I hope you like it, it was my first attempt at a paper bag album so any tips or comments would be gratefully accepted!!! Thanks, Lou x
