Crafteezee Collection - Elegant Ladies

Hello everyone 

I am here again today with some more inspiration using the lovely Crafteezee Collection.

First of all, for those who do not know, these are Limited Edition.   It is a collection assembled by Tracy, who tries to source ALL NEW items each month, focusing on her favourite things.  If there are any left over these go into the store, and if not just those that purchase the kit will receive. Each month is a different theme .   Don't miss out, hop on over HERE to order your kit.    Doesn't that sound fabulous!  There is also an additional facility using Paypal monthly subscription links.

So, onto what I made.  Today I am sharing a card using the Crafteezee Elegant Ladies' Collection and selected other things from from the shop at plus items from my own stash.

So, from the 'Elegant Ladies' Collection I used the gorgeous papers which actually include some images, one of which I framed behind a Scrapinec ~Frame from the shop.  In addition the lovely Umbrella, lace, pink flowers and charms were all from the Collection.

I used a mixture of Joy and Fantasy dies.

I will add links below to the two-tone flowers, seam binding, cheesecloth and pearl cascade which were from the shop at

Here we can see the lovely seam binding, Pearl Cascade and Umbrella.  I cannot get enough of this!

  I will list links below.

The May Collection is now available to order,it is entitled 'Life is a Journey' and can be found HERE

As always, I have absolutely loved using this fabulous Collection!

Thanks for stopping by and happy Crafting

Back to Vintage

Hello everyone,

I have made a vintage card for my Sister's birthday tomorrow, she loves vintage and circular cards so this will be perfect for her.  She also likes green :)  The image was cut from Pion Design's Grandma's Attic Bouquet image sheet.  The papers used are also from Pion Design 6x6 With all my Love from the Where are the Roses Collection and Pendants 6x6 from Pion Design's The Songbird's Secret.  The Butterflies and text were cut from the Borders sheet from Where are the Roses collection.

I have used the new Lace Irene and added a Wycinanika Back to Vintage Chipboard border.

I made a couple of Foamiran flowers and added to a chrysanthemum from the Spring and Summer flower packs.  Finished with some 1.5mm pearl spring and diecut trailing leaves in Pion Design Green I.

Look at the fab shape of this card, isn't it elegant.  I used the NEW LDRS Grace Build a Card Die Set.  It's fabulous, I used the largesgt die for the base and the second one for the inner panel and then used the second largest as a stencil to make the third layer.  It comes with lots of other elements as shown below and I will be reaching for this set again and again.

Hope you like it.

What's Your Style?

So this week I've used another card art from Dutch Doobadoo.  I know that some people use this template and make it so you can fold it and close it buuuuuut......Ya, not mine.  😁  I just like my embellie's far too much!!  I've used Maja Design's "Summertime" collection and did a blue and green color combo.  The hearts border around the edge was an idea I "borrowed" from one of Tracy's cards, the queen of embellishments herself.  hee hee

Still like playing with the new images from LDRS and this one is "What's Your Style" which I colored with Copics.  So which one would you be?  Me?  I'm the middle one - I love comfort and casual most days.  Also, I hate ironing and the only thing I use my iron for is making Foamiran flowers now.  HA HA HA!!!

I've used my new Marianne butterfly border die and added a variety of Wild Orchid Craft flowers to make a pretty bouquet on both sides.  Also added some pretty bark hearts (love those) and along the bottom some gorgeous ruffled lace from the shop.

As always at Noor Design UK, if an item is out of stock just email Tracy at

I hope you get some crafty time this weekend!!

Thanks for stopping by!
