Pion Design With Love still editing...........

Hello everyone how are you all?
I was hoping you to show you a project this week with in depth photo's or maybe even a video of the making or part of. However my daughter got took into hospital & although she is home now she is still very poorly. Also my eldest son & family moved at the weekend so I was looking after my grandchildren as well as my poorly Natalie & well there are not enough hours in the day.

So I will show you that next week as I'm really looking forward to doing it. Today though I have some shabby chic for you......oh my I love shabby chic........I would have it everywhere........even hubster would get the shabby chic treatment if I could get away with it lol.
I used the oh so pretty Pion Design 'My Dearest Sofia' papers, I went with blues for this one with just hints of pink in the background.
I have also used bits from the Crafteezee Collection No.9 which I think was March Elegant collection......but I'm not certain :-(
The 2 hearts in this photo are from the Crafteezee collection, the lace heart is lace & you get a long length of it but I just cut 1 heart may end up seeing these lots lol
The small metal heart I added Ivory Fran-Tage embossing powder to it but before I heated it with my heat gun I rubbed off little bits here & there so a bit of bronze would still peek through.
I also cut out 2 doilies, 1 in white card using a Fantasy die & the other from Pion paper with a Marianne die...........these are 2 of my favourite dies........amongst many others lol.

This little wooden peg with a heart on was also from the crafteezee collection....I added white gesso to the wooden peg & then stamped a postage stamp on the half of the heart.......its not showing up very good in this picture. I stamped onto paper first to get a lot of the ink off as I wanted it light.

I love the metal leaves but sometimes I think they dont really go with my I added Fran-tage embossing powder to both sides & heated them with my heat careful & use tweezers as they get very hot with being metal.
Now I absolutely LOVE them & will be buying lots & giveing them the fran-tage treatment lol.
For these I used Ivory Fran-Tage to match the smaller metal heart in the previous photo.
I used some gorgeous flowers & I used quite a few different leaves. I used the metal ones & I used 2 different Rosy Owl Leaf dies & I also used Tim Holtz Holiday Greens.......I think a couple of the dies in this set you can get away with all year round. The Tim Holtz ones I cut with the blue 12x12 Pion Sheet, Rosy Owl was cut with the green 12x12 pion sheet & the maja design sheet & also white cardstock..... I also added some heat treated organza ribbon in there as well.

I added cheesecloth between the first & second layer & I also added 2 different laces. I distressed all my edges with a Tim Holtz tool.

Well thats it from me dont forget about our current challenge which is 'Add Lace' here.

Thanks so so much for stopping by it means a lot to us.
Lotsa hugs Vicky xxx

I love you

Hi guys, I'm back today with another creation using the fabulous
It's mine and hubbies 37th Wedding Anniversary in three days time, so of course I used some of the fabulous products from the kit, talk about great timing!!! Lol
The background paper is from the kit and is by Pion Design, as usual all links below,
I then added a layer of the lace from the collection,
 then on top I used one of the Pion Design papers from The Songbirds Secret which I had bought previously from Tracy,

I moved the embellishments around on the paper till I liked the effect, then started fixing them into place, underneath are two Fantasy Dies, the 8 pointed doily die and the On the wings of love dies, both of which are out of stock at the moment but drop Tracy an e-mail to see availability,
I then layered a wooden Button and a sentiment tag from one of the Pion Design papers from my stash, I  then just added some brads from my stash,

Here's a closer view of the wooden button,  I thought the I love you was very apt,!!! lol
If you saw last weeks post in which I showed you all the products which came in the kit, I mentioned the fabulous metal envelope shown below, which I added some paper behind and a little Dutch Doobadoo structure paste here and there too,

I finished it off with one of the adorable resin cameras, a cute metal clock with a gear effect inside and some of the flowers from the collection too,

Go check this collection out or why not pre-order the next one
