I can't believe its Wednesday already, I just haven't got back into a routing since Telford and days are slipping by very quickly. Today I am having a crafty day, We have flurries of snow, hailstones and heavy showers and I don't have the car, we live miles from anywhere so I'm allowed to craft all day.

The botanicals set has sat on my shelf having only had one outing, so I thought I would get the big shot out and do a load of handle turning, as I was doing this an idea began to form...... isn't that often the way.
I have had these two origami leaves that I have wanted to use for ages and they fit so well with the botanicals theme. I didn't want to do a box frame but I have a shelf full of new picture frames. This is what I came up with.

and here it is in the sunshine!

I really like this sentiment, its something my Dad used to say.

Just using the dies and not the stamps really show off the fine detail of the images created.

And the leaves are so intricate I would have spent hours fussy cutting those.

What do you think? I think I need a small butterfly to sit below the sentiment. Must go and do that before I forget!

This was the previous outing of this set, a box and a tin. A very different colour palette.

Right I'm off to stamp and fussy cut a butterfly. Back tomorrow with a mid week male make....a day late but hey ho!


  1. WOW ….was my 1st reaction when I saw this frame! Incredibly beautiful! Is truly eye-catching!
