Bella Bleu

Hi again everyone. I write this feeling very under the weather...yet again I seemed to have picked up some nasty virus. I swear I am a magnet for fact I truly believe I have one that has taken up permanent residence in my bloodstream, and just pops out now and again when I'm a bit low just to let me know it's still around!

Anyway, enough of feeling sorry for myself and on to my latest creations made a few days ago. I have indulged myself in my new SU stash.

I have used the new SU Bella Bleu papers...I so had to force myself to cut into these babies..

The ornate frame is by none other than Mr Tim Holtz...isn't it a beauty?

The gorgeous envelope template is by Priscillastyles. I really love this template. What you can't really tell from my photo is that is it approx 2cm deep, so perfect if your card has a bit of dimension to it.

The SU stamp set is one of my fave's from the new catalogue called "Autumn Days". I have used Not Quite Navy SU cardstock to match with the Bella Bleu papers.

Well I really enjoyed making this set...hope you like. I'm off for a lie down...see you all again soon!

Beautiful!! All of it! Thanks for the link for the envie too. :> I love that paper! And its the kind of paper that I probably would not have looked at without seeing it in a stunning crafted way, like this set. That oh-my-goodness-gracious-golly-gee-whillackers-my mouth-is-hanging-open piece of metal from Tim! Ahhhh. Sigh. :>:>

Julie said...
