Something Different with an LOTV Sneaky Peek!

Hello everyone!

Thought I'd share something I've been fiddling with over the last few days and something that I've been meaning to do for a while but never managed to get round to making!

I was planning on making this topiary tree with a different set of papers from Lili of the Valley months ago but kept thinking up other things to do so when I saw all the new goodies we've got coming out I had to use them to make this project!

The papers are from two brand new Raspberry Road paper pads from LOTV, 'Timeless Victorian' and 'Pressed in Time' which will be available on the website on the 24th February but you can get your hands on them on Create and Craft on Monday 10th!
The fabulous Dawny P from our DT will be on at 9am and 3pm (UK time) with 6 new 8x8 Paper Pads and 5 new Art Pads and they are all absolutely GORGEOUS!!

The base for the 'foliage' is a polystyrene ball and the 84 (yes, 84!) roses were cut with the Chinese Rolled Rose die from Marianne Designs.
There were a few gaps between the roses so I filled them with curls of floral wire.

I put floral oasis in the bucket so there was something to stick the trunk into and I covered the top with moss to hide it! The twine around the top of the bucket is from my stash, the sentiment is from LOTV's Set 30 Vintage Sentiments - Occasions stamped onto some of the 'Pressed in Time' papers and  cut with Spellbinders Back to Basics Tags.

I've started making another one with another of the new pads called 'Heartfelt' and it's just a gorgeous as these two!

Hope you like it!




  1. Oh this is gorgeous! And I am impressed with your perseverance in cutting 84 flowers! Love it! x

    1. Thanks, Sammy! =D It did take a while and I'm glad I stuck with it because it does look really good!
