Flower Fairies Gift Collection from Cardmaking & Papercraft Magazine

Hi My Crafty Blog Friends

Happy Weekend. I hope you are doing something nice. Yesterday we visited our daughter and her new husband. They have been married for exactly a week. Doesn't time go by quickly. We did have a brilliant time at the wedding. We have lots of lovely memories to cherish.

Well I keep treating myself to crafty bits and pieces the latest being the August issue of Cardmaking & Papercraft Magazine with its Flower Fairy Gift Collection. I remember the flower fairies from my youth and I know my mother-in-law loves them too.


The gorgeous paper came with the kit. There is gold foiling on the frames of the images so I added gold and purple mats and layers. 


This is a small picture of a Harebell. 


This is the Harebell Fairy she is very pretty. The paintings of the flower fairies were done in the 1920's by Cicely Mary Barker. 


The sentiment was cut with a a Spellbinders die I do like the font. 


I was very pleased with how this card turned out. There are lots of elements left in the kit so I will be making some more cards and other things. 

Enjoy the rest of the weekend. 

Happy Crafting

Hugs Jackie

Hi Jackie,
what a beautiful card and those freebie items are so beautiful.
Love the flower fairies as I inherited my Mums years of collecting them in the form of nearly everything.
Sadly flower fairies were not about to card make while she was alive, but since they have been here and there in the crafting market.
Lots of crafty love. Jenny L.

It's a gorgeous card Jackie. My Dear MIL, Jacqui, loved flower fairies too and has one etched on her gravestone. The grandchildren thought she was the fairy queen when they were little. Barbxx
