A Plum Twist Of A Make!

basics Thanks everyone who took the time to watch my first Create and Craft shows for Creative Expressions on Friday and even more thanks to everyone who then dropped me a note too via here on my blog, Facebook or Twitter, so very sweet of you all and hugely appreciated!


I thought I would share one of my makes from the shows, it is an off the page altered wooden frame, with a bit of a vintage feel.

The heart is card embossed in the Couture Creations Intrinsic embossing folder and sprayed with the Plum Twist Cosmic Shimmer Mister and I’ve also added the gorgeous Creative Expressions Vintage key and leaf metal embellishments, love these, the big keys are flat-backed making it even easier to stick in place and the leaves are bendable.

Oh and the really useful screw top brads too. The background to the heart was all done with Ranger Archival and Distress inks and the Creative Expressions Texture plate stamps (another firm fave!).

For the wooden frame I used the That Special Touch Key Mask with Plum Twist Cosmic Shimmer mister and added some extra texture by spraying some of the Creative Expressions crochet ribbon and pressing it onto the frame. 

The product are all still up on the Create and Craft website as well if you are looking for them.

Thanks for popping in and catch you later.

    Hi Kim

    I managed to see both your shows and thoroughly enjoyed them. Your demos were brilliant, so original. I especially loved the dripped spray one, will definitely be giving that a go. You are a natural on the tele and I hope we get to see you regularly.
    This is a really beautiful frame, I spotted it on the show and wanted a closer look so thanks for sharing it with us.
    hugs Lisax

    Ooh, scrummy colours, and the shabby chic look of the frame is just fabulous! Love the crocheted lace used to "stamp" with onto it. So sorry I didn't catch the shows… sounds as though they were great.
