I'm a July guest designer for By The Cute and Girly!!

Hey everyone!!!

Ok, so when I found out that I won a guest designer spot over on By The Cute and Girly I was so SUPER excited!!! I could not wait to get started on my projects for it-A big thank you to all the girls on the blog & to Lora for all the info :) This July the challenge is "Something with wings" and there are AWESOME prizes so click HERE to head over to the blog and join in the fun!!!!!

Heres what I made for my guest designer pieces-

 This is my altered Gorjuss butterfly frame! I will blog the details about this again later in the month....
 And then I also made this mini birdcage engagement album and altered box....
 Tim Holtz bird & cage die cut, adage ticket, seam binding and lots of roses...
 The papers are primas recollections which I have just fallen in love with....
 Adage ticket, bling....

 The BEAUTIFUL bling centres I have used throughout the book are by Michaels and I got them from my lovely friend Emily xx
 Love this printed paper....



 I just love the colours in these papers-rusts.... blues.... mustards....

 Back cover....
 Lots of fibers and seam binding....
 I also made this altered box which started as a plain kraft box...
 I painted it gold and red...
 The window allows you to see the lovely birdie, again more roses and seam binding....
And that's it!! This mini was a present I made for Eimear to give to Ciara and Alan for their engagement-congrats again! And I gave her the box as a lil gift from me....

I hope you like it-leave me a comment if you like!
*huge hugs*
