March 2015 Tag

Just a quick post about my March Tag inspired by Tim’s 12 Tags of 2015 for March. This was fun tag to do, starting with Tissue Tape and then Distress Paints as the background.  I stamped and embossed two flowers, then created masks for them before using Faber Castell Whipped Spackle through Cargo Layering Stencil…

A Door Closes

Welcome to my last post as an Imagine If… Design Team Member!  It has been a good year – busy, varied and creative. This month the new products are windows, keys and locks – perfect for a little reminder! I started out with a ‘burlap canvas’ and all the lovely chipboard pieces.  I laid the…

Hello Gorgeous Book

There is a space on my dresser that I thought would be perfect for a little ‘positive affirmation’ album.  The Bella Rouge Collection from Pink Paislee was perfect for this – I love the colour combination of these papers. I decided the right size for the book was 5″ x 7″, so I made the…
