Baker Ross...Just Add Adults!! :)

Hi all :)
This is the first of a few projects that I have done for the craft company Baker Ross. Now, most of us probably connect Baker Ross with children's crafting, but the lovely Katy approached me and asked if I'd be interested in using some of their products in 'Adult Craft Land' know me!!!.........
Sooo....with a box full of goodies...I set to work ......

For this project I have used some papers from the 'Mittsommerland' Paper Pad to make the roses and leaves...and a Paper Lantern.
The paper pad is FAB!! It measures 24 x 34 cm and has 26 sheets. 13 designs and two sheets of each...BUT...the wonderful thing about it sheet is 270gsm and the other 80gsm!! How brilliant is that?!!! I used the 270gsm red polka dot paper for the roses and the 80gsm green paper for the leaves.
The paper lanterns are in a pack of 4 and measure 12cm in diameter. They come flat packed with a metal center piece to keep their shape and a piece of gold trim to hang them up with.

 I have used a BATTERY OPERATED tea light in mine. Pleeeeeeeeeease do NOT use normal tea lights for risk of fire...well...certainty of fire!!

Therefore, mine makes a lovely little side light for those 'chill' moments.

I have other projects to come so watch this space!!!
Have a fab weekend and Happy Crafting

Helloooo!!! :)
August has arrived and summer is well and truly here!! Yayyy!! :)  I can't remember the last time we managed to string so many lovely summery days together! I look out of my craft room window and I'm seeing beautiful blue skies, and watching all the little sparrows in the hedge and on the feeders...I'm not exaggerating when I say there are more than 20 at a time out there sometimes! is my DT project for this months challenge at Tattered Lace...our theme is 'Decadence' ...

A tough challenge this one as it entailed me having to go into the very yummy cake shop in the next village!! I had will power...however I also had three other passengers in my car!!! O.o

I used a 6 x 6 card base...
Matted a pearlised pink layer, then a TL Rose Garden embossed pearlised Cream layer... 
Cut 4 Chantilly Hearts - shaped and glued 
Cut 1 plain and 2 lacy roses per flower (5 needed altogether)
Cut out Chantilly Rose to go around the wedding cake pillar
Cut 2 of the largest rosette pieces and made 1 rosette
Finished off with a beautiful cupcake from Debbie @ Delicious Cakes...
