Hello! Donna here sharing today’s project using the beautiful Fairy Garden collection. I love the soft pastel colors, florals, butterflies and fairies in this collection. It’s perfect for whimsical and magical themed crafty projects.
For my project, I made this simple card with lots of fussy cutting. I splattered some white glimmer mist before adhering anything for a little bit of sparkle.
I used a polka dots paper from the 6.5 paper pad, cut it into a 1-inch strip and pleated it.
I fussy cut a couple of big floral images from the Moonstone paper and then mounted a die cut from the Collectables pack with foam tape for dimension. I also fussy cut some butterflies and fairies.
I also customized the envelope and the inside of the card with some papers from the 6.5 paper pad.

“Altered Mini Wood Boxes” Decor Project by Donna Espiritu
These are the small boxes where the wooden flourishes were originally stored. Once opened, I transfer the flourishes in a plastic storage so I am left with these empty wooden boxes and I couldn’t throw them away because I know one day I’d use them somehow. And today’s post is the perfect excuse!
I used the Kaisercraft File Set to smoothen some of the areas that are uneven and to also prevent splinters later on.

IT460 – Ripples
3 Tips for Using Templates
Today the Design Team have collated 3 helpful Tips for using Templates in your crafting…
Tip #1 – Using Inks
‘Barefoot Welcome’ ~ by Renee Aslette
Firstly, using Inks through your template is a great way to create a small, controlled pattern. In this layout, Renee has inked her Template to create a background for her clusters of embellishments.
Secondly, using Mists through your template can create a real “watery” effect. Alicia has used the Template to decorate the background page in her layout and it looks similar to the ripples in the water at the pool or at the beach. In comparison to using inks, you have less control over the end result when using Mists.
Thirdly, Donna used modeling paste and watercolours to add interesting texture to her card and envelope. It’s a nice way to personalize any cards.

Trio Hello Betty Cards by Jowilna Nolte
For my trio of cards, I explored several creative ways of using this range and all its elements.
From my Paper Pad, I used the embossed paper and inked it using a combination of pink and red ink to match the pink of the roses.
For this card, I used the stamp set. I stamped the sewn circle and then added some watercolour paint to the center and background.
My decorative elements consist out of a cut out doily from the previous card, a butterfly and a sentiment with some rhinestones.
Here I used the ruler paper from the Paper Pad and added stickers to dress it up. A few sewn accents and a wooden flourish complete this card.
