Christmas Scene

Hello Crafters

Hope you all had a smashing Christmas and Santa bought you lots of crafting goodies. I was very lucky and received some wonderful dies, and vouchers which of course I spent immediately! I also was given a beautiful hand made teddy, and my little laddie thought it was his, so now I have had to put it in a safe place in case he runs off with it!

He is a good boy though, but he does know he’s cute and very stubborn, luckily I have an even bigger stubborn streak, so he knows when he’s pushed his luck, but you still got to love him!

Well despite the obvious distractions, I have managed to craft today, but I have to keep it until the recipient has opened it, so I will have to share a Christmas card with you.

This is a first time project for me as I bought this die a while ago, but have only just had time to play around, but I think it has so much potential, and for all you got it is a reasonably priced die.

Craft Items Used:

The box card die comes with all the accessories to make a complete scene, but I wanted a winter scene, so used the Lawn Fawn Stitched Hillside Borders in blue design card and vellum. Although you can’t see it in the photos, to make it shimmer, I added Spectrum Noir Clear Glitter Pen.

The pictures don’t do it justice, but it looked like a real wintry scene, and the beauty of it is that it folds flat to post, and wasn’t very bulky at all.

Well that’s it for now, all that’s left is to wish you a Very Merry New Year and I look forward to sharing my makes and visiting you all in 2017.

Merry Christmas one and all!

Hello Crafters

Just a very quick pop in to say, I hope you have managed to survive the last minute shopping, the baking of the royal family mince pies, the endless yards of wrapping and ribbon and bows, and the frantic tidying of the whole house………or is that just me? 🙂

Well I hope you are now chilling with the ice cold glass of wine that you fought so hard for in the supermarket this morning, or enjoying that well earned cup of tea/coffee.

Thank you to all of you who follow my blog and come and visit me, you are truly a very talented bunch, and I feel honoured that you take the time to visit.

Whatever you are doing or wherever you maybe, we would like to wish you a Very Merry Christmas and an extra special 2017.

Happy Crafting

Hugs

A Little Christmas Magic

Hello Crafters

Well by now I would think that your creative side has been put through the mill and you have all been crafting your little fingers to the bone to get those christmas cards done! Totally sympathise as I have been doing the very same thing myself. Thought I had it all covered, thinking I had started so much earlier this year….but oh boy was I wrong! So worked like a trojan Saturday, to get the last of them done, but as they say, you save the best till last, so I would like to share this tiny little box, that is bursting full of christmas spirit!

I wanted it to be full of Christmas cheer when it was open, ‘full’ being the operative word, and I think you can safely say that was achieved 🙂

I used a pre-cut box I purchased from Hunkdory Crafts, and they were really reasonably priced! They are called Mini Pop Up Box, but you can fit quite a bit in there if you don’t mind a bit of jiggery pokery, like us crafters do! They come completely blank, so the box is your oyster, so to speak, fill your boots!

The dies used on this box were:

All the card used except the red mirri card (own stash) was from Papermill Direct.

Well I hope these pictures show the beauty of this little piece of Christmas magic.

That’s it for now, hope you have a wonderful crafty week 🙂

Hugs
