MDF Frame, Classes and Candy, Candy, Candy,

Hello Everyone,

I have lots to tell you so I apologise for the lengthy post.  I do have some yummy candy and some new classes to tell you about in the UK and Norway, so bear with me until the end :)

First I'd like to share with you my MDF Album that I have made as as special gift to a friend.  I have used the Dutch Doobadoo MDF Frame, all links will be at the bottom of the post.

I sooooo love how this turned out.  I used the Dutch Doobadoo Heart Mask with Structure Paste to the right hand side with the love hearts mask, love this stuff soooo much and used the structure paste on the bottom left, but used the chicken wire mask.

I used the MDF Frame and also the Stencil so the papers matched and could be layered.

The main text panel was created using text from the Clear Stamp English Sayings Set and then I used 

The little hugs and kisses underneath the text is from the Carpe Diem Die Set.

This is page one.  I have used the Butterfly Edge Die, Butterflies 2 pcs, Dutch Doobadoo Paper Art Bow with Shabby Pink Frantage.

I have also added some lasercut butterflies from the Dutch Doobadoo Paper art Butterflies to the centres and a couple dotted around.

I have also used the chicken wire stencil and structure paste and added some soft bricks.

The flower on the left is another NoorDesign gorgeous Flower Corner Die, embossed and then structure paste added.

I added some paper to the square of the frame and used it as a doily.  Beautiful. 

Bottom right I have stamped the grunge heart from clear stamp set Sending Love onto accetate and layered onto the panel.

 This is page 2.  This is my friend Nancy spending time with her family.

I have used my ladybug die on corrugated card at the top.  I used one of the small grunge stamps from the stamp set with gesso and stamped on the corner of the photo.  The With Love text stamp on the left is from the same set.

I added a 30mm rose and added two types of leaf dies, links at the bottom.  

I used the Dutch Doobadoo Heart Mask and Structure paste and added beads.  It was meant to be microbeads but I didn't have any in white or pink so beads it was, lol.  Love the effect and it looks far better in reality.


Page 3

The stamped word LOVE is also from the clear stamp set Sending Love.

 I used the beautiful Square FRAME from the latest release, then used it as a stencil and added black soot distress ink.

Page 4

Again the4 All We Need Is Love text stamp is from the sending love set and the gorgeous Filagree Heart is from the release. 

At the top is one of my most favourite border dies.  

I used the brick mask and structure paste in several places and added frantage fragments, love the texture.

The Friends text is from the clear stamp set English Sayings.  Just underneath this I have used the chandelier die which comes with the square frame seen earlier. 

Nearly there, honest.  The Back Page.

Again the little ladybugs made their way out, lol.  

I added 3 tags to the pocket and tied a little teapot charm to them.  Nancy does like her tea:)

The pocket was created using the Envelope with Diamond Stencil.  

I used the small leave mask again with structure paste. I added a bark heart to the centre well centre-ish and added a butterfly


If you have made it to the end Thank You. :)
