The rose was made with Grungeboard and die from Tim Holtz. Lots of blue and orange distress inks and Crackle Accents too.

SIMON SAYS STAMP AND SHOW, SHOW US YOUR NO RULES.....


Hey there guys, it is Monday so that means we have another  fabulous challenge over at the





Our generous sponsor is offcourse SIMON SAYS STAMP

Did you ever visit the Superstore.....you didn't....my goodness you better hurry over there cause they have the most fabulous products for us crafters...wohooooo, just click the blinky and it will take you there....


and our generous sponsor has a fabulous prize for one winner ....check this out...


Isn't it amazing

The theme for this weeks challenge is...Show Us Your No Rules.....

You can make whatever you like sooo that will be an easy one eh? But it has to be VINTAGE and has everything to do with the theme from this week.....

This is what I made .....


I created a baby book to go with A babycard that I allready made for my teamie Sarah., I made the card a while back and saved it for this special occasion.


I wanted to make something special for Sarah so I had to wait until she gave birth to her baby. Once I knew that she has given birth to her beautiful babygirl Ruby I altered a notebook and made a Girly baby book so that Sarah can write some nice adventures in there for her precious girl. 


I used the Graphic45 Little Darlings paper to decorate the book because the papers tell me how wonderful new life is I just love them. To give it even more a vintage feeling I distressed the edges with Vintage Photo, and I used Tim Holtz Chit Chat Stickers on the cover as well.



I could not resist using some crackle accents. I placed some on the "mother' and at the bottom of the book, so this way you can see how fragile everything around us is and that you should treasure the Little ones.


And for the fun of it I placed some of these mini sprocket gears on top ......

And offcourse I have worked on the inside too.....some words from the Graphic 45 paperpack and little butterflies....just loveeeee butterflies.....after I had taken the picture I wrote something on the brown background.....but that is for Sarah and her Gersham to see.....lol....


And the back of the babybook......and my project is done.....I am hoping that Sarah will like it and will have a nice keepsake for her babygirl Ruby....


So here it is.....the finished Babybook for Ruby.....I had a lot of fun making it....and do you wanna have fun too guys..then you really should come over to the Simon Says Stamp and Show Challenge Blog, so you can see the AMAZING creations from the teamies.....you can even win a fabby prize from our generous sponsor Simon Says Stamp....wohoooo so come on over and do join into the fun.


 Thank you for visiting my blog and if you want to leave me a little love that would be just great

Thank you for your lovely comment. Hugs Terry xxxx

SO are you ready for this......



So here is what I have created I made a frame with lots of butterflies.
You'll know that I am a huge fan of butterflies right......

I wanted to see what I could do with Metal  Foil, so I used the Ranger foil sheets in various ways to create a framed d├ęcor piece. 



First I embossed the foil with  Springtime Texture Fades. To give the metal surface an aged feel I worked some alcohol inks and then black acrylic paint onto the embossed area. 



I layered not only foil on this project, but flowers cut from the Spiral Blossom die,




And here is the other rose that I placed on top of the frame.....with some lace that I colored with Distress Ink....




 lots of Mini Butterflies from Tim Holtz  and crackle paint, ink, and other elements




I wanted you to see this picture too because of all the fabulous colors on the inside of the frame....I worked with distress stains, distress inks and YEP here it comes......CRACKLE.....and lots of it...I just love that stuff ....and I just loved working on this piece....just for your inspiration....
