Bits and pieces using CLD dies

Another post showing some of our great Cheery Lynn Designs Dies in action. Projects done using some of CLD dies on each one, but not too many of them - and still it make all the difference! So here they are-2 LOs and one card this time
The first one is a lo named Catching the waves, done using this Sea Shells by the Seashore border die, some as a photo frame and some as the single cut pieces of shells and I also used the seagull cut as a template for the birds on the upper corner and filled it with Ranger enamel paint

The second one is another Cameo card- this time I used the Frills and hearts border

So don't wait- grab yourself some great CLD dies and do some new and fancy projects with them too

Omer: altered stitching hoop project

This is my most adorable 3 month old grandson Omer and an altered crosstitching hoop I did  with his photo.. I love flowers, I love shabby, I love blings and you can't use them with older boys.. But with 3 month old- the sky is a limit and my Prima stash is the second  limit only
So old black hoop, covered totallt with old vintage curtain lace, grungeboard pieces painted to white with fairy dust glitter, lost of flowers, some pins, metals and his name
I decided to stick to  this vintage clean colors- mostly white with a bit of blue as his eyes still are and some green  like in the photo
Lots of work in a very small , not more then 6'' circle piece
I hope you like it-the other thing is that you can change a photo in a second and to use it as a rechangable
Entered to Southern girls challenge for Blue and Green

This and that with CLD dies

This week I decided to collect all bits and pieces of my never posted here work, using our fabulous Cheery Lynn Designs dies .Also on those projects I didn't use many of CLD dies, but only a few here and there, I want to show you how effective those great dies are and how much one or two single dies can add to your projects
So here they are
The first one is a cardboard based scrapbooking page made for my only sister MAYA- and this is this
page name

I used French Pastly Doily several times and Scalloped Diamonds Border die on this lo
The next one is this dramatic Cameo card, made with XL French Scalloped Flair Nested Stackers dies
and as I don't have the regular French Flair dies, I just cut 2 around the dies- more work, but the same
result. I also used those Little Oval Nested Stackers dies as my Cameo base- the black was cut from the
chipboard Cameos package, the second one- from white cardstock

The third one is my XOXO with flowers card and I used this Large Parallel Rectangle Stitching plate to make a grid, then used some brads and twine to separate the sectors and to make this card

As you can see from all those projects:a small CLD touch and your lo or card are taken to another and better level
So go to our shop and grab some dies- then let us see what you can create with them

Graduation mini album

This album was published in June 2011 issue of SNR magazine
My very new mini album made with Best Creations most gorgeous Graduation papers and Clear scraps
 not clear, but chipboard Camera album
My trick  here is to use those plastic frames left after your orange Wonder tape is over as it fits exactly the circle cut in this mini album front page. I then coverd it with black velvet ribbon all around  and it's a recycling and nice look all together

Welcome sign :creat a scene with CLD dies

This time I decided to grab my Cheery Lynn Designs dies and to make a whole scene using some or  
 lot  of them... I also opened my Core'dinations paper stack I got from them as they are CLD partners and added some of their great cardstock from my own stash (the colored ones are my old babies, the whitewash is the new addition) and here we are: oval sign to welcome anyone
Here are quick instructions How to do it
 Cut a solid green cardstock with the biggest of the XL Oval Scalloped Stackers
 Cut the second size from some nice springy patterned paper- I used Best Creations one- and embos it with your Stitcher plate large Oval for the dimension
 Cut some clouds from the patterned paper and then cut some with you Expression bubble die
Cut a yellow sun with your Little Stackers Inverted Scalloped Circle die- I used one of the middle sizes
Build the sky as shown; add some glitters and pearl paints-I used Ranger
 Emboss some Whitewash Core'dination's cardstock with Bricks and Stones embossing plate and make a distress look using your sand Core'dinations distress tool, dust it with the special dusting cloth for the clean look. Using your Little Stackers Square Scalloped dies - 2 sizes of them- die cut 2 square houses. Cut all the rest of Brick embossed paper free hand. Layer the houses and cut the roofs to fit them
Emboss brown Coordination's cardstock with Wood grain embossing plate, cut the trees free handDie cut 2 ovals using our Little Stackers Nested Oval set, emboss them with Hearts and rose leaves XL embossing plate and build the trees as shown
 Die cut a fence with your Picket Fence border die, cut a small part of it to fit the sign
-and here is my new trick
use the small square leftovers from the inside as your doors and windows over the houses
 Add the Welcome letters, some black glitter smoke and glitter fruits and enjoy your creation
And as always: everything you need to make this sign is here
