Tilda Sewing Shadow Box


It's been over a week since I posted anything, I was so busy watching the tennis last week and then this week have been busy with some projects that I haven't had a lot of time.
Anyway, today I'm showing one of my projects, a pretty vintage sewing shadow box. 
I bought this one from crafters companion and decorated using Tilda design papers and paper embellishments. I also lined the edges with lace.

This is the bottom of the shadow box, filled with bobbins, buttons, wooden mini pegs and paper embellishments. 
I also added two metal corners.

In the centre, I used one of the Tilda dolls, more buttons, bobbins, a coat hanger charm and some scramble tiles. I also added some die cut flowers from the paper pad.

This is the top were I added a bunch of embellishments along with a crochet heart. There's more charms up here including a thimble and sewing machine.

I love using buttons as they make a great embellishment.

House Mouse: Exams


It's getting to school holiday time here in the UK and the end of exams and I was inspired to make a card using this house mouse image.

The papers came from Nitwit collections ladies and gentlemen range, matted on black and white.
