Papercraft Star Special!

Hello and good morning!

Now I warn you ... This is a long post and full of photos ... so grab yourself a cup of tea or coffee and hopefully you will enjoy ...

I'm really excited to share not only my project but that today, here at
we have an amazing Guest Designer who is also generously sponsoring a fabulous prize for our winner!
This lady needs no introduction to most of you ... When I say she is not only a sweet and kind lady but an immensely talented artist it is an understatement ... Our Guest is non other than 


Mona has designed for many companies and her versatility is amazing ... so much so that she has now designed an exclusive range of stamps, dies and stencils for 



If there are any of you have not yet visited Mona's blog ... or her Mixed Media Challenge blog - I urge you to do so ... you will be in awe! You will also find tips tricks and tutorials to get the most from your supplies and learn everything from Card Making to 3D projects to Mixed Media ... 

This is Papercraft Star's Photo Inspiration for this week ...


 Mona generously sent each of our designers the exclusive Timeless Stamps and Time Piece Dies designed by her for us to use this week ... 
(I will leave links at the end of my post for you)

 

I was so thrilled to receive these goods ... You all know how much I love anything to do with clocks and as little Miss Sophia has graduated from nursery to 'proper' school ... It gave me the opportunity to make a fat little album ready for some photos and journalling ...


The papers are a mix of Dear Lizzy and Crate Paper but all stamps and dies used are from 
Timeless Stamps and Time Pieces


I made this in the shape of a little school house  ... Isn't the clock just beautiful! I've never used MFT goods before being in the UK and I am amazed at how much is in these sets and just how easy the dies cut!


You can see some of the cogs from the set next to my felt owl and I've used the clock hands as holders for the photo as well as a piece of the die cut clock to decorate the top of the page together with rhinestones


More cogs and I stamped the clock hands onto my paper where the photo mount is ... also a different clock face here


I stamped and embossed onto black card here to give a chalkboard effect and cut a couple of pencils up to stick onto a burlap frame ... the other themed buttons you can see came from my sweet friend Lynnda


I did use Rub-ons for the "best buddies" but again the cogs, clock hands and pretty black 'flowers' are from the sets
Feel free to click on all the photos to enlarge


Here on the left I cut the cogs from DP and the clock was done by leaving in the sections of the outer face in and stamping directly onto it


With all that embellishing I left the back just plain


I have loved playing with these sets and it's going to be hard for me to part with this little album ... but I'm giving it to Sophia's Grandma my SIL who will keep it safe 

A great big THANK YOU to Mona for her generosity

Please hop over to the Papercraft Star blog to check out Mona's creation together with the that of the rest of the team and link up your entry to be in with a chance of winning this awesome Stamp and Die set 

Thanks so much for stopping by - 
Can I just also say that my thoughts and prayers are with everyone affected by 9/11 as we remember today

Till soon
