Golden Wedding Anniversary Canvas & Card

It was recently my mother and father in laws 50th Wedding Anniversary.  In the past I have created cross-stitched wedding samplers to commemorate their achievements, but as I am heavily into papercraft nowerdays I thought my gift to them should reflect that.  I also wanted to make them a card which matched the canvas I had put together.

I used a variety of different items and manufactuers some of which I orderred and some I bought from a £1 store.  I already had a photo of them on their wedding day and the 2nd photo was taken exactly 50 years later.  I managed to get the photo printed and canvas finished for their anniversary party the next day.
The finished canvas and card were very gratefully received (which pleased my lots) .  I really enjoyed putting them both together.

Create - For my craft room door

I made this for my craft room door.  A while ago I bought a box with different colours felt butterflies.   I knew then I would use the box for something else in true scrapbooking style.

I started off by spraying the box with Cosmic Shimmer mist in Golden Fish and let it dry.
I used 4 different papers from the Tim Holtz Lost and Found paper stack in the panels.  I then added trim, buttons, angel hair, mesh and a brad in these panels too.

I sprayed the front of  the word 'Create' with Cosmic Shimmer mist in Candy Pink and then covered it with Distress Crackle Paint in Rock Candy from Ranger. I painted the back, sides and odd little bits on the front with black acrylic paint.

I added all the bits and bobs such as the red feather, buttons, angel hair etc then adhered the word to the front.  

I am really pleased with how it turned out and will now take pride of place on my scraproom door.
