On Stage Auckland 2 Forever Lovely

As well as presenting Forever Lovely at On Stage Auckland, I also had a board to display other samples for people to look at. Pictures are worth a thousand words, so here are some of the other ways you can use Forever Lovely, whether you are an avid, casual or beginning crafter.

The edgelit in the Forever Flowers die set matches that pretty floral fretwork spray, so it was just begging me to use in with an acetate window.

Inlaying die cuts can be a demanding task but the new Take Your Pick tool made manipulating those tiny pieces easy-peasy.

Something less demanding is to stamp the two-step spray twice, with a 180 degree rotation. The flowers have a coat of clear Wink of Stella that really sets them twinkling when they catch the light. If you're not a Valentine's day person, grab out Itty Bitty Greetings and change it to what you want: You're Engaged, Happy Anniversary, Many Thanks... you choose.

For something really quick and easy, how about these lunchbox love notes or briefcase billet-doux? That little distinKtive heart cluster is a quick, sweet background to any sentiment.

If you're liking the look of the Forever Lovely bundle, it will be available in January and there will be more to see in tomorrow's post.


  1. Your cards are just beautiful!!!

  2. Beautiful cards! I was hoping to find the card that looks like a kimono and obi using this set. Are there directions? I spent a year in Tokyo, so this really spoke to me. I was told the card was shown at Onstage Auckland. I live in the U.S.

    1. HI Laura. I've never seen the card you are referring to that uses Forever Lovely to make a kimono and obi. I did the presentation in Auckland for Forever Lovely and it wasn't me. Sorry that I can't be of any help to you. I did do a pocket card which i suppose might look a bit like a kimono? Look at my previous post and see if that is what you're thinking of.
