Valentine's Day Style.

Hello everyone,

It is Saturday evening (late) lol as usual and I have just finished doing my blogpost for Craftwork Cards.   They have been having a really busy week as they are opening a retail outlet at their factory in Leeds. I so wish I lived nearer so I could run workshops etc., but I hope to do some in the summer at least, so if you live in that area and would like to go along, they are so lovely and are having a opening night and weekend this week. 

In honour of Valentine's day this week, I thought some of you might be in the mood for some lurvvvvving... haha so I created a box in my style using some Craftwork products of course, so here goes...
This is the view from above and you can see how I matted and Layered some pretty paper etc. before cutting out some shapes and adding them to each end. I then began making the large flower to the top left.

These are the sides of the box with letters inked and mounted onto black card, cut out and added on top of a piece of crochet ribbon, and then seem binding in a subtle pink shade.

This is one end of the box with the little jewel hanging from a jump ring pierced into the flower I made.
And here is the same seem binding tied into a messy bow with a small heart and key added.
This of course is the last end with a little heart key attached to the crochet and it swings as the box is moved. Of course, anything can be added to the box, chocolates or bubble bath fizzers of notelets, pot pourri, anything really, just to show you care so much, but of course everyday is for that not just Valentine's day!

On this theme I want to say that I appreciate everyone stopping by and really do enjoy reading your comments and having interaction with you all. So, it seemed a good time to leave my links to my facebook, twitter etc. so you can chat to me anytime should you want to say hi or even ask how to create anything you have seen. So links will all be below at the end of this post.

I have just heard form the lovely Linda at Memory Maze Design that our boxes of goodies are all ready to be shipped! So, of course I will be showing you all what I can create with their chip board shapes too; I don't think I have ever seen such detailed chip board anywhere! And we can also design our own pieces and Sally the owner will cut them digitally, so that means you will be seeing some really intricate and fab detailed work coming through, so keep popping back and of course I will let you know the dates to go peep at the site too but, as I say, below are all the Addy's. 

Have a great weekend and I hope to post again tomorrow.
