French Plaque

Hello friends or should I say Bonjour!
Today I'm featuring a project that I created for Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L.
It is a little plaque for the home in a French style.
Lots of layering and using a Keepsake Envelope too.
If you have a moment please visit their blog to see a step by step tutorial
and how recycling cardboard for projects is jolly useful!
 It also features a pretty butterfly..of course! Les Papillions Two.
For the body section I've used the 3D Foam Hearts and some chunky glitter.
Right now I'm the supplier in the UK for the Designer Shapes, my blog gets a mention 
in this month's edition of Cardmaking and Papercraft Magazine under their Easter Extravaganza!
The shapes are available through my Amazon shop or, as always, drop me an email.
I was asked yesterday if I would be stocking the new Die D-Lites  -
yes I should be stocking most of them soon, if there are ones in particular you favour please drop me 
an email as I will make sure I pop them on my order form.

Enjoy your day friends, I'm still trying to will Spring to come...I keep purchasing daffodils and 
yesterday planted up a window box - not quite the same when the clouds are grey!

Take care.

Hi Christine,
Absolutely lovely, where did you get the papers from?
If it weren't for my crocusses and snowdrops, I wouldn't know that spring is definitely on its way - just taking its time getting to us.

Morning Christine, how lovely...where do you get your ideas from? I had noticed your blog featured in the mag, fantastic.
It is raining here and still cold. Where is "spring" it must be hiding somewhere as it certainly is not here yet as snow is forecast.....again....
Have a lovely day.

Ahhhh... beautiful, the gold glitter flakes on the butterfly are just gorgeous :)
Very cold here, dull and wet... I actually think spring has forgotten us :(
On the plus side...... I have made the semi-finals for the DT call, I am in complete shock, now waiting for the goodies to arrive so that I can send 2 designs over to them!
so going to be very busy:)
Enjoy the rest of your Wednesday,

This is stunning and right up my street! Would love to know where you got the ephemera you used from, they look so french and pretty!

Sally said...

Hi Christine, I really like the plaque. I wish I could make things like this, when ever I try to make vintage style cards they just look a mess.

I like the stand this is on.

Take care
