Live & Love Crafts Challenge Elizabeth's Sketch

Hi Crafty Bloggers 

How are we all ? Hope your having a super week !
 There's a brand new challenge at the Live & Love Crafts Blog .
 I am honored to be here as a guest designer .  
The new challenge is a fabulous sketch from Elizabeth !!!

I used the sketch to make a recipe card with Magnolia Tilda with carrots . I have coloured her with prismacolor pencils .

I just love carrot cake and have lots of newspaper /magazine clippings of recipie's to try out so I thought I would make a place to put them all in !!

I have used a selection of beautiful Pion papers !! Can never decide which side to use they are all so pretty lol. That's what I love about sketches you can use up all the little bits  ! I have used sewn panels and a spellbinders scalloped circle . The beautiful peach trim is where I have added some pearls from Melissa Frances. The large paper clip I have tied a peach/pink gingham bow with vintage beaded centres . I have cut Magnolias Dies the butterfly and stitched lace !! The tiny flowers are from Prima botanical gardens where I have added these super cute brads .

Here is a couple of shots of the recipe box for the recipe insert to go in

I have used another Magnolia Flower Die and placed this stunning Vintage Antique button in the center .
I have used Pion Grandmas' Schoolbook to cut the letters for the sections .

I found these huge paper clips in my local stationers !! and thought I could attach my clippings to them ;0)

I hope you can join in on the fun and check out the  teams wonderful creations and the wonderful prize to spend on these gorgeous crafty goodies at Live & Love Crafts .  There is also an extra prize so why not check out all the details on the blog !!!
There are new products in store too ! I have added them all to my wish list lol ;0)

  10. Hi Kirsty-Anne,
    I couldn't agree more with Elizabeth; we're so fortunate to have you as a GDT this month at LLC. I seriously almost fell off my chair when I opened the pic and saw this amazing recipe box. It's such a beautiful box and an inspirational project; I love it!!! In my next life, I'd be happy if I'd be half as creative as you're with papers. :-)

    Many thanks again.

    P.S. Hopefully I'll get a chance to try out the carrot cake recipe as well; it was fun seeing what the recipe card looks like!

  11. Oh my, this is sooooo wonderful!!! It must have taken you forever to create this and it's an absolute stunner!!!
