Brambly Hedge has arrived

Crafters Companion are launching 2 stunning new Cd s as Pick Of The Week on Create and Craft on Friday the 14th of June.

The 2 CDs each have their own theme, 1 Autumn and Winter and the other Spring and Summer.
They are packed with all the stunning features that you would expect to find on a Crafters Companion CD but there are lots of extras on these new CDs like fabric companions, traditional toppers and topper companions.

There is also some stunning stamp sets to accompany the cds and even an embellishment kit including lace, ribbon,pearls and even metal corners!!

My 1st sample started off just as a card but suddenly grew into a much larger project.

I printed out some of the topper companions from the autumn/winter cd. I used canvas effect paper to add some texture. I would have liked to have used watercolour card but for some reason my printer decided it didn't like it!

I then mounted this image onto some coordinations and added some paper flowers from my stash..i then thought i could make it into a little book so i took some of the construction acetate from crafters companion as it is so strong it would give strength to the book. I used some of the metal corners from the embellishment pack.

On the back of each page i covered them with coordinating papers from the cd and made some little pockets. On page 1 i added a little notebook.

Page 2 had some labels

Page 3 some party invitations made using the notepaper from the design sets.

Page 4 had some coordinating envelopes also from the design set.
On each of the flowers i used some of the epiphany images from the cd and used the Oval epiphany tool and bubble caps.

Then to put the whole thing together I used some book rings and using a hole punch made 3 holes in each page, added acetate between each paper page and joined them all together. To finish i added some ribbon from my stash.

Thanks for stopping by and hope to see you soon with some more brambly hedge sneaky peeks xx
