More fairy door magic

I am absolutely amazed at the talent of the ladies in the UKScrappers Fairy Door Swap. Apart from the pictures I've seen on the site I've been lucky enough to receive 3 beautiful doors from 2 very talented ladies. First of all Kay sent me her gorgeous door, perfect shape, beautifully made and a treasure for my home. She went the extra mile and included a beautiful fairy to go with my door. It sits on a special window sill where I keep a few of my special treasures:

Then I sent off my first door which I made from part of a chipboard name book. The page with the letter E turned to the side looked like a miniature castle so I decided a miniature castle I was going to make. I also had some chipboard fencing and ambitious as it was I was determined to create a fence around the castle adorned with flowers. Finally I added the door in gorgeous Hunkydory card, I wanted something pretty and shiny for a magical feel. The sign reads, "Away with the Fairies":

Not long after I received not one, but TWO unbelievable doors from Pauline. She couldn't decide what to go for so made me two. First of all one in my absolute favourite colours purple and turquoise and seondly a more natural wooden style door, complete with a welcome mat and kitty and a broom. The doors are beyond beautiful. I really can't describe them and im sure the pics do not do them justice:

Finally I decided my other door was a bit too plain. I had gone for a natural and plainish look on purpose due to my other one being rather sparkly and pretty but fairies are fairies and they need some pretty now don't they? So I added a few bits here and there and a fairy scene on the back...

So there is all the fairy magic of the Magical Fairy Door Swap, hopefully I shall have an abundance of magical fairies arriving in my home through my gorgeous doors...


  1. Please say one of them is for me - I haven't had mine yet but they're both stunning (although I think the purple castle has already found a new hone)

  2. They are all gorgeous doors, loving the kitty on the mat - genius and love your castle one!
