🍭 Allsorts - three pearls 💎💎💎

Hi all,
it's my turn to host the challenge at Allsorts and this week I want you to add three pearls to your project 💎💎💎.

I made a gift bag for a baby, using some super cute DP I got from a paper swap ages ago and some flowers I made by gathering lace with a sewing thread and fastening a pearl in the center.

I figured the hand sewn flowers were appropriate since we are sponsored this week by Tattered Lace, giving away this gorgeous sewing die set.

🍭Allsorts - Make it girly 👗💄

This week at Allsorts the theme is Make it Girly 👗💄. I used an old image from Sugar Nellie called The best day ever. I made the pearl spray myself by using the thickest fishing line they had at the store and glueing rice bead pearls to it. And the ribbon flower is made by two separate bows glued together with a pearl in the middle.
I made my own "bow-easy" template and I have used it so much I will soon need to make a new one even though I made it by sturdy cardboard :)
You can find the template here.

All the images created by JMC Designs are hand drawn by Julia McNeill, an artist who lives in the north of Scotland. Julia has a unique way of seeing everyday items in a different way, these everyday items inspire quirky and whimsical designs that just make you smile.

Julia wants to share her imagination with you to inspire your creativity so you can enjoy the benefits of unleashing your creativity.

The winner this week (chosen by random.org) will win a complete digi collection from JMC Designs of their choice.

Allsorts - Dies or punches

this week at Allsorts Ellie wants us to use dies or punches and make sure they are easy to spot on your creation, something that shouldn't be all that hard, we all love our dies and punches, don't we :)

I took out a border punch I haven't used in a while and made frilly edges on the image of my gift bag. I really like the faux lace effect these punches give. One of the hearts from the punching scrap could be recycled to decorate the clothes pin holding the bag together.
And why not use some dies as well, in the form of a poinsetta and some pine branches.

And we have a brand new sponsor:

🍭Allsorts - Vintage

This week Wendy set the theme at Allsorts to Vintage. According to the Oxford dictionary meaning: denoting something from the past of high quality, especially something representing the best of its kind

I used an image that I cut out from a design paper, mounted on distress edged kraft paper and decorated with a Sizzix die cut flower to make a gift bag. I really love Christmas vintage images and always use them to make too many gift bags for Christmas, ending up with "left-overs" :)
And this week we have a lovely prize for a lucky winner:
