Hey guys,

Below in my previous post there was a video about my DT pack & haul, I mentioned about doubling up the metal filigree flowers you can buy from WOC, and referred to the photo of what I had done, on my blog, but I can't seem to find it so I thought I would show it on this post instead. So below is 2 of the filigree flowers that I doubled up, and swiped with Pebeo wax to highlight the parts I wanted to highlight. I absolutely love these metal flowers and all the different looks you can get with them, and this is just one example..........

So below is a photo of how the flowers look in the shop and here is the product code for you,
I do hope this has helped you in regards to how you can make these look, and they are stunning as is, with maybe just a pearl in the centre.
Thanks for looking and have a lovely day!

Hey Guys,

Well........guess what? Last week I was kindly invited onto the Wild Orchid Crafts DT whoo hoo, woo woo woo flick flacking down the street, oh okay, I wasn't, cause I couldn't, but I was in my head!! LOL.  Ok I've calmed down now guys.........Just a bit....So I am a new designer for Wild Orchid Crafts, and I cannot wait to get started so much so I ordered some flowery goodness and glitzy stash, and have done my first DT package & personal haul video, which I will add to this post. I have added all the codes to the goodies and tried to show them in as much detail as possible!
So please enjoy and let me know you have been visiting !! Hugs & Blessings, Vick xxx

Hey folks, I hope you had a happy weekend, and now it's Monday, going into Tuesday I thought I would do another tutorial video. This time I am making a lovely little piece of work, that is flexible, it can be glued down flat or around corners of boxes, or spines of books, or it can even be sewn into, and all from some gel medium and a rubber stamp, so go grab a cosy chair something to drink and let's get started!!

Thanks for looking, and also look out for some great news for me that I am not yet allowed to share but will definitely share as soon as I get the go ahead..........hope you find this video advantageous to you, and inspiring, thanks for looking,
Hugs, Vick xxx

Hey there crafty peeps!! as promised yesterday, I have filmed a video of me making my vintage Christmas tag, not the decorating part cause you can pick your own embellies etc to go on your project, but the stamping and composition of the piece, so that it is made easy and any crafter at any stamping level can do it, its so easy, I promise!!! I go through it step by step and break it down, so without further it is.....hope you find it helpful.
Why not leave me a comment on here or Youtube so I know you've been to visit me and any questions you may have, or even requests for more!
 Hugs, Vick xx

Hey Guys, how are you all? December already hey? So, I was on my facebook account the other day, as usual, and I thought, " would be nice to organise a tag swap every month starting this month, so that's what I did, I started a group that will follow the theme and make a tag to swap every month, cheap on postage and quick to do, so the first theme I chose was "Vintage Christmas" and here is my offering for my swap partner, although I was silly really as all my Christmas stash is still packed from when we moved, lol, so I found one stamps set, had my lace and some bits and a white pencil and that was it, here it is, thanks for looking and have a lovely night xx

Ingredients included a glass pebble I made with the "Happy Holidays" text, Poinsettia stamp and die, lace, satin ribbon, calico, mesh ribbon, all from my stash, satin rose made by me, silver heart from stash, stickles, white pencil, various stamps, kraft card tag
