Never Doubt Your Instinct – Thompson Craft Supplies

This week I have used the gorgeous Papers from The Old Manor Collection Mintay Papers. I have used the lace and sisal from my DT Kit stash and with the papers I have used various sized floral dies to cut out some flowers. The beautiful resins I have bought from our Kasia, my fellow design team member. I have created a pleasing composition and used a glue gun to adhere my pieces onto the tag. Hope you like.

Collect Beautiful Moments

Hi there, my Thompson Crafts DT piece this week is a shabby chic card using the beautiful
papers from the Mintay Papers old Manor Collection and a couple of flowers from Prima.
Basically I have chosen the papers I would like for my backgrounds and fussy cut a selection of pieces from the bonus sheet that comes with the collection I have also used a couple of pieces of vintage look lace. I then laid it out into a pleasing orientation then just stuck it all together and added a sentiment from the Tim Holtz sentiments sticker book.

Tell Me A Story

Hi there this is my project for Thompson Crafts this week –

This week I have another little mini scrapbook page with a twist, I have distressed it and folded the corners over for more interest.
I started out by distressing the edges of my paper and then popped some paint splatters in black and white for the background. I gathered all my pieces together and decided on a
pleasing orientation and glued it all down. I’ve added seed beads and sisal for texture and
interest.
Hope you like hugs Aly xx
