Round up of Lovely makes

Last, but not least, my remaining projects created with the Craft O'clock Lovely When You Smile collection. 
Sorry there was a bit of an interruption but I was dealing a real life stuff as my other half  was in hospital. (No, not Covid!)
First a small book to hold tags, made with a single 12x12 scrapbook paper: 

To decorate the front I used an image from the Junk Journal extras, backed by the "inside" of a square frame and added a ribbon for closure. I used tissue tape (Tim Holtz/ideology) on the spine and edges of the book.

I decided to give a shape to the folded edge for added interest.

All the tags, except the largest, were cut from the Extras. The largest made from scraps of 8x8 paper. 
Of course, I could put other things rather than tags.

My next Mixed Media creation on a round MDF panel, from That's Crafty, on which I stuck a piece of the 6x6 paper pad.
I sprayed Distress Oxide... and I know you will think pink was involved, but no, actually, I used Blueprint and Antique Linen. So I'm guessing there are pink pigments in the Blueprint that reacted with my next layer of crackle!

The focal point is one of the figure from the Extras 12x12 sheet which I fussy cut and watercoloured, before popping up on foam pads, accompanied by other fussy cut elements from the same sheet.

That's all folks... I hope you enjoyed this mini series of posts.

Thanks for coming by,


  1. A pretty colour palette to the collection Christine and a lovely ethereal feel to the circle creation.

    Hope hubby is OK.

  2. Wow, your projects are amazing! I'm loving cover and all tags that you created out of those beautiful papers and your MDF panel is gorgeous 😁. I hope your hubby is ok and home now, wishing you both well! Take care! Hugs, Jo x

  3. I especially love the tag holder. A great way to showcase these products. Strange how the ink reacted on the round, but it has created a lovely effect and works really well. xx

  4. This is a great project, really love the design and the colours. Happy crafting, Angela xXx

  5. Just love those pockets full of tags, and the round panel is fairytale pretty. Do hope all is well now with your other half.
