Recycled Chocolate box

I have had this old chocolate box for a couple of years now.  
Originally it was cardboard cover with tartan paper.  I have used scrap paper and a scallop circle punch to make the scalloped flowers.  The centre flower is using my new EK border punch. 

Butterflies and more butterflies

Here are a couple of items that I have made for the up and coming School Gala. 

The Big Shot and Stampin up Butterfly die are perfect for pieces like these.

Now and Then

It is not very often that I actually scrap photos of Gregor and myself and this is mainly due to the fact that I am usually the one behind the camera so most of my photos are of my boys.

I cut half the label template out on double side patterned paper and then folded it to reveal the back pattern.  I cut around the flowers and tucked the folded section underneath to hold in place.  

 The flowers are made using my big shot and a sizzix 3d flower die, which is fantastic.
