Danni's Gorgeous Pocket letter
Danielle Pocket Letter YouTube Video
Good Morning Ladies,
Welcome to another 'Mixed Craft Saturday' we have some lovely crafts to look at today.
I have started off with the beautiful Pocket Letter that Danielle made for me for our Swap, the Pocket Letter was only a part of the lovely gifts that Dannii and I swapped, she had made me a lovely Christmas Gift Bag, gifted me some gorgeous paper pads including an absolutely stunning A3 from Crafters Companion in really pretty Peaches and Pinks, I managed to get some flowers in matching colours to swap back with Danielle. I was left absolutely blown away both with Danielle's generosity and creativity.
To show Danielle's Pocket Letter off probably I filmed a short video, I have left the link under the photograph.
Now onto Janet's 'ATC's..……
Janet was paired with Lynda in our recent ATC swap, these are the incredible Artist Trading cards that Janet designed and created for Lynda, they are amazing Janet. The first one features die cuts, the background is a pretty die cut with a intricate pattern, small enough to work perfectly on the ATC size, the Butterflies are a feature of the background, Janet has coloured them and bought them to the foreground where they make the perfect embellishment. I love the finishing touch around the edge too.
Janet's second ATC is complete contrast to her first, this ATC is a made up of a lovely arrangement of Resin embellishments, those corners have what looks like Art Deco style roses on them, the centre piece is a pretty cameo with a darling little show beneath, Janet has added some Hydrangea petals is beautiful colours and finished with a heart and pearl Trim.
Janet you would never believe that these are your first ATC's they are both incredible and I know Lynda loved them. Thank you so much for sharing them.
Karen goes to a Craft Club and has shared some absolutely incredible crafts that some of the ladies have made....
I will add Karen's description below:
"I thought you might like to show these on Saturday I have their permissionThe first is a miniature made by one of the ladies at craft club She had a stroke about 18 months ago and couldn’t do her miniatures Admittedly she bought the little cabinet but has created all of the little birds and flowers etc from Fimo
The second is by another lady from craft club who does a bit of everything and has got into beading recently."
Both items are absolutely incredible, that Miniature cabinet with the flowers, Birds and Butterflies, all made out of Fimo, you don't realise the tiny scale until you see the £1 coin. I can't imagine the skill and patience it takes to create something so detailed. It is absolutely exquisite, the lady that created this is so talented, it's impossible to think that she had a stroke 18 months before.
The second picture is 3 beautifully beaded bracelets, made using tiny beads, sewn together to create these beautiful patterns, so intricate and pretty. Thank you so much for allowing Karen to share your work with us. xxx
Thanks Karen for sharing your friends work, it's so inspiring to see other crafts, especially when they are as amazing as these ones.
Thank you to everyone that took part in today's blog post, please send me any photo's of any mixed crafts that you would like to share.
I hope that you all have a lovely weekend,
Love and hugs to all,
