Fairy Shaker Birthday

Hello Crafters

Well yet again I cannot believe that another weekend is almost over, ever feel like ‘Stop the world I want to get off!’ I feel like the rabbit in Alice in Wonderland, ‘I’m late, I’m late, for a very important date!’

However I have completed my lesson kits and dates booked, so *excited* I am! It will be so much fun departing knowledge to great people whilst doing something I love, sigh…..meanwhile back on the gravy train, life must go on! Indeed it does, so I have just a little card to share with you. It was made for my great niece (oh I do sound old), but again those little fairies came out to play and help me make her smile.

I used Lawn Fawn Fairy Friends for the main characters, Spellbinders Scalloped Circle Large for the window, Cheery Lynn Horizon Fishtail Banners for the sentiment.

Inside the window, Lawn Fawn Puffy Clouds and Mama Elephant Grassy Trio.

The background papers were from The Range.

Short and sweet tonight, but hopefully I will have more time to chat next week, beside Poldark has just started, and a woman has to do what a woman has to do! 🙂

Have a wonderfully crafty week!

Pop Up Santa

Hello Crafters!

Hope you are enjoying the Sunday sunshine. I have been reading about the World Card Making Day and thought I need to share a card too.

This one was my first pop up and it happens to be a Christmas card. I haven’t yet bought any of the dies that make it so easy, so this was all worked out by yours truly, so it isn’t perfect but it is unique!

Now I started writing out how to make this, but to be honest, it is so complex the best thing I would say is, just have fun experimenting and finding your own way of how to put these things together. I didn’t find it hard, but it was time consuming and fun at the same time, as learning something new is always fun! Certainly made a few boobs along the way, but all are valuable lessons!

The best thing about this was putting together little ol’ Santa here. He was a real pleasure and must admit, made me have a giggle or two on a few stories I remember about Santa and the children! This die is from Marianne Designs – Eline’s Santa. Well worth having in your die stock, just a happy fella, and there are other put together creatures, that I will be investing in at some point.

The fence on this had me questioning if I had lost my marbles making it a bit complicated but it worked in the end. The mountains in the back were just randomly cut from brown card and distressed with Picket Fence and then a gel pen to mark some features, and I was really please with how it looked!

All in all, much experimenting and loads of fun.

Have a lovely crafty Sunday.
