Please enjoy this free Gecko Galz Collage sheet
As well as the samples I have made using the images

Here is your free Collage sheet.  Click THIS LINK to download it.
Here are the samples that I've made.


A Christmas Card.

An 8" x 8" layout. I used a Martha Stewart border punch for the lacy edges, a Marianne Design die for the flourishes. The hat was cut using my Cricut machine and the Paper Doll Dress Up cartridge. I handmade the flowers and then added lace and some pearls to the side and to the hat.

A New Years card. The clock is a Tim Holtz Sizziz/Alterations die. I stamped and embossed the fireworks in the background using different coloured embossing powders that had glitter in it.


An altered notebook. I covered the book with a patterned paper and I also covered a card frame with a coordinating paper. I went round the edges with dusty concord Distress ink and stamped the flourishes in the corners of the cover with a Creative Expressions stamp and dusty concord Distress ink. I embellished it with lace, ribbon, flowers and metal corners.

I hope you enjoy the hop and I wish you all Good Luck.
