What are Your Favourite Summer Flowers?

I really would like to know! ;)

Hi, servus and thanks for stopping by.
Honestly I have a lot of "favourites" when it comes to flowers, but thistles are definitely one of the flowers that immediately make me feel happy and warm inside because they make me think of joyful, warm summer days spent out in beautiful nature...

As there are so many different beautiful Flora and Fauna wood shapes to choose from in the Calico Craft Parts online store, I guess you may well find your favourite flower there too. I used a thistle wood shape (of coures) as the starring flower on my summer themed tag.

As you can see on the sneak peek image it has gotten some company...
If you hop over to the Calico Craft Parts Blog to check out the finished tag and blog post, you will find a short how-to and also the list of craft shapes and info on paints and crackle media I have used.

Hugs and happy crafting!

Customised Clipboard for StencilGirl

Hi, servus and thanks so much for stopping by!

Today I am sharing my latest project done with some fab stencils and DecoArt paints and products over at the StencilGirl Talk blog and this is a short invite to it.

I found some cheap MDF kits in a dollar store that come with everything you need to decorate these and put them together - stickers, glue and brush - but I decided to only use the MDF pieces and decorate them my own way (I will give the stickers to my lovely niece) using some of the lovely stencils from StencilGirl Products.

I loved that sentiment and had to have that stencil and combined it with a gorgeous stars and some mark making stencils from their incredibly wide and artsy range. A full tutorial video and products list and how-to infos can be found over at the StencilGirl Talk blog. Simply click HERE to get taken to the blog post with the video and loads of images and tipps.

I hope to see you over there! 

Hugs and happy crafting!
