This week I am sharing a project made with the latest downloads from Do Crafts Creativity Club. This download is called Paisley in Cream and has fantastic Mothers Day sentiments. The colours are so rich and vibrant.
I made a card using these papers to begin with…
The words on the sentiments are so lovely.
I then found that I had so much paper left it was a shame not to make something else, and so I decided to decorate a picture frame to match as this would make a lovely, personal Mothers Day gift.
I used the X Cut flowers does to decorate the corners of the frame. The centre of the flowers have adhesive stones to add a bit of sparkle. I then added a matching bow, which could be removed when the frame was placed on a shelf.
Here are the two items together.

Today I would like to share a project I have made using the latest Do Crafts Creativity Club downloads. This week they are the gorgeous Red and Pink Love papers and they are gorgeous. I knew when I saw them I wanted to make a centre piece for my table as i love to have a themed item depending on the season in my living room. It can be anything from a Wreath to Bunting or something for the table.
Here is what I have made to celebrate Valentines Day. These would also be great for a wedding centre piece and the best part is you could keep them afterwards.
I have used the Triangle shaped nesting dies to make the flags and then decorated them using flowers, hearts and butterflies.
Each flag has been embellished with adhesive stones.
They have been adhered to sticks and them a piece of Oasis has been placed in the bottom of a glass jar. I have covered it by curling papers strips using a pencil. I placed these in the jar along with some cut out heats so that you could not see all of the workings.
To decorate the jar I have tied a double bow around the centre.

Just recently Do Crafts launched a fabulous range called Vintage Notes and I have to say it is amazing, well this week the FREE download was some more exclusive papers in the Vintage Notes range.

A4 Die Cut Toppers – Vintage Notes
Leafy Lace Border Punch

Cut the second to largest Ornate Frame from White Textured Cardstock.
Die Cut the second to largest butterfly from the Blue and Pink Patterned Paper and the smaller size down butterfly from White Textured Cardstock. Adhere them together, just in the centre so that they stand up.
Attach the ribbon to the back of the butterfly and adhere it to the Ornate Frame.
Attach This to the centre of the card.
Layer the sentiment onto Kraft Card and attach to the bottom right side of the card.
Add 3 adhesive Stones to the top corner.

If you have any questions about this or any of my other creations please contact me. I will just mention the gorgeous embellishment used on the centre of the butterfly was one that actually fell of my slipper about an hour before I made this card! I placed it on my desk and whilst I was looking for the perfect finishing touch this caught my eye!!
Today I would like to share a Christmas Wreath I have made to feature on the Do Crafts Blog. Each year I love to add to my decorations and always try to have a few home made items that match the decor. This year I chose to use the Do Crafts Home For Christmas range papers as I adore them, it must be the only paper pack that I have used up completely!
Being part of the Do Crafts Creativity Club has so many advantages but one of the biggest must be the amount of downloadable papers you can chose from. Not only that but each week the fabulous people at Do Crafts add more to it!
This week they added the 80’s Retro papers and I knew I would have to use them to scrapbook pictures of my eldest daughter Annabelle. I made this page to feature on the Do Crafts Blog.
She loves to pose as you can see!
Annabelle is at her happiest when looking in the mirror and spends most of her time doing so!!
All of the papers here are downloaded and they are so bright and vibrant they only need small amount of embellishments added. I have simply added a large flower inked at the edges and a couple of black bows.

Last week Do Crafts creativity Club released their new download and it was all Black and White. Gorgeous patterns and very on trend. First of all I was going to create a male card with these papers but somehow I ended up adding colour to the cards and giving the majority of them a feminine touch!
All the cards are made using 4″ x 4″ white card blanks, X cut dies and embellishments from Do Crafts. These would be great for Thank You cards to use after Christmas or as a set to give as a gift for Christmas.
There are so many downloads to choose from over at the Do Crafts Creativity Club and all this for only £24 a year. To find out how you can join simply visit here.
The card I am sharing with you today is a fairly simple but effective card that I have made using the free downloadable papers from Do Crafts Creativity Club. The papers are called Patterns To Love and I showed you a peek of them a couple of days ago in my Daily Sketch post. The blue, Grey and White in these papers make fantastic winter projects and although they are fantastic for Christmas projects they can be used for so many occasions.
These papers go so well with Kraft card and the Brown string gives the card a really rustic feel to it. The design on the paper is simply too pretty to cover up.
The nesting dies I have used are from Do Crafts as is the kraft card, brown string and adhesive stones.
You can find out more about Do Crafts Creativity Club here.
Being part of the Do Crafts Creativity Club means not only do you get access to hundreds of downloads but you also get a sketch available to you everyday to help you in those moments of creative block!
The card I am going to share with you today is a daily sketch that I recently download combined with the fantastic new downloadable papers – Patterns To Love.
I am constantly amazed at how using a sketch can make you think in a way you would never normally think!
This card is an 8″ x 8″ size and I have used the Do Crafts Nesting Dies to cut the scalloped circle and circles. The pattern papers you see are the downloadable papers and if ever there was a reason to join the Creativity Club this is it! These papers are just amazing!
To find out more about Do Crafts Creativity Club visit the website.
I will be sharing more projects made using these papers later on in the week, so keep checking back to see what else can be made using these papers.
Don’t forget I am giving away a 6 month membership to the Creativity Club to one lucky follower as soon as I reach 100!
