MLSB and Punky Sprouts!!!

Thursday, September 29, 2011

My Little Shoebox and Punky Sprouts have joined forces during the month of September and I was given the wonderful opportunity to play with a gorgeous Punky Sprouts Teanie-Beanie Mini Album.

Now I don't profess to being very clever at using mini albums for their true purpose so I decided to go for a different twist and create a Spring banner, especially as I was lucky enough to have the new 'Audrey' collection to use which was perfect for the theme.

I had a little play with a fun product from Twinklets called 'Diamond Dust' which is actually crushed pieces of glass so allows your picture to remain visible yet give a sparkly effect that picks up the light from any direction. And I must give credit where credit is due as I learned all about this product from a dear scrappy friend 'Suzanne Sergi'.

The Punky Sprouts Album came with two calico pages which I decided to give a bit of a lift by running them through my embossing machine using a large dot embossing folder. Love the effect it created!

How gorgeous are the new 3 D roll up flowers from MLSB which come with every new collection and have different patterns and colours on each side so you have double the options and double the fun. Perfect and easy to use! It certainly saves having to hand-cut your own flowers!

 Products used to create the banner include:
MLS Audrey - My Fair Lady (11542)
MLS Audrey - Breakfast at Tiffany's (11544)
MLS Audrey - Funny Face (11545)
MLS Audrey - Roman Holiday (11547)
