Introducing the Armoire

Hi everyone, I'm super excited to be sharing the launch of our elegant Armoire Kit and Bundle with you today. This gorgeous laser cut MDF kit measures just under 14" from the base to the top of the pediment, is 7" wide, 6 1/2" deep and has a slot and stick assembly system. A fabulous kit on its own but, as we all like to make mini books and have places to tuck and keep memorabilia, I've designed a Mini Album, Mini Album Box and little pull out box that sits on a suspended shelf too. The detailed assembly guide (digital download) that comes with both options is video driven, includes a full assembly guide for the Armoire, dimensions for cutting the album covers and mini album box from chipboard, the small box from card, tips and techniques for the project and a generic cutting guide to decorate everything in papers of your choice. I've had loads of fun altering our two samples in different paper lines giving them a totally different look. So let's take a…

Picture Perfect......

Hi Everyone, today's post was inspired by the arrival of my friends beautiful baby boy and a photo frame I've made for her. If like me you love making and giving gifts with a personalised touch our Photo Frame Kit is the ideal base to create perfectly framed memories that you can coordinate with your favourite 12 x 12 papers and cardstock too.     There's a bunch of options with this kit to make two portrait and landscape style single frames or one double portrait or landscape style frame.  I was on a roll after making my baby frame and made a couple of double frames using different techniques.   Double Photo Frame with taped frames - I used our Signature Black Construction Tape to edge the frames and then decorated them in paper strips with mitred corners.  This technique uses less paper than the convention wrapped frame. You may recognise my little pirates - Oli ands Harry wearing the hats and parrots they made at a Pirate themed morning with Auntie Annie at the National …

Launching the File Folder......

Hi everyone, it's Friday and launch day for our latest project - the File Folder.  I had loads of fun making the samples altered here in two gorgeous paper collections to give two totally different looks to the same File Folder Cover Set.  .   Measuring 10" x 7 1/4 x 2" the sturdy File Folder Cover set is laser cut from 3mm MDF, has a magnetic closure inset into the covers, opens top reveal the option to add a noticeboard section on the inside cover and a ring binder that holds four layered pages. These can be made with or without pockets and pull out photo mats.  I've added a tuck spot option for the pages too. These allow you to slot pictures onto the pages without sticking them down. That way you can always see the beautiful papers you've chosen to decorate your pages in, like  like the Mad Hatter below.  I added black clips into the samples too to hold more pics and ephemera on the pages.   and right in the centre there's an acetate waterfall section that h…
