I've packed my case ...

As I said in an previous post ..."I'm back"! Lots to share as the lack of internet has meant I have made loads of projects, some completed and some are still a work in progress but one project I promised to share was what I stuffed in to my case. You can find the original post HERE ...


I have made a selection of cards to go in the case using the same papers, pan pastel colours and embellies. I covered the papers with Perfect Medium and then added layers of dairlylide yellow and metallic bronze pan pastel to enhance the papers. They look really lustrous in real life which my poor photography skills does not show up. I stamped the butterfly on to scraps of said paper and added magenta pan pastel highlights. I have made 2 of each design with matching envelopes.


On the inside of the case, (lid area), I have added a mini padded notice board type of thing and again used the same papers as I used on the cards. Added ribbon and lace to be where you can tuck your miniature messages etc.


I want to add some tags and decorated post cards next, plus a book of stamps before I give the case away as a present. Will post the photos of the latter once they have been finished ... but not sure when that will be as only half done.

I have caught up on lots of my commenting and now off for a pinterest fix as feel a need to redecorate before Christmas, (as you do) ...
