Docrafts Projects January 2015

Today I'm demonstrating the new Docrafts collections at The Range in Carmarthen. I'll be in the store from 10am until 4pm and would love you to stop by if you're in the area.
Yesterday I showed you some of the card samples I've made but today I have two projects.
This 3D frame was the bottom half of a box of chocolates in it's previous life. I gave it a couple of coats of gesso before a coat of pink Artiste acrylic paint. I finished by wiping smears of gold Artiste acrylic paint across it with a sponge.
The decoupage in the centre is from a Simply Floral A4 decoupage pack. There are lots of tags, words and other embellishments plus the backing paper in the set.
The paper roses have been fussy cut from one of the Simply Floral 12"x 12" papers and decoupaged with foam pads. I finished the frame with elements from the Bellissima charm pack.

This 'Handbag card' was made from a 6"x 6" card blank which I scored either side of the fold to create the base. The papers are from the Simply Floral and the Bellissima collections. The letters are from Bellissima and mounted on a die cut. The tag and charms are from the Bellissima range.
I used an X-cut Rectangle Parenthesis die for the top of the bag, folded it in half and fixed it to the back of the card. I attached a rose with a foam pad and used twine to act as a closure. The corners are Kraft card with faux stitching.
The inside was finished with more Simply Floral paper and another die-cut. The paper hides where the ends of the handle have been inserted through slots and glued. It's a nice idea to attach a small gift in a bag on the inside.
I hope you manage to get your hands on these fabulous new collections from Docrafts. And I'd love to see you at The Range in Carmarthen today if you're in the area.
