Eeek, it's only three more sleeps until Christmas!! I swear I am more excited than the girls as always! I only have a few more Christmas projects to share with you now then it will be onto Valentines etc. Today I am sharing my Me To You project that was made for Crafts Beautiful Magazine.
Happy Sunday, I hope you are all having a lovely relaxing weekend. I will try that but I am sure it won't work as it's my only day off before Christmas now so I will probably spend the rest of the day running around like a headless chicken! On another note here is my third and final card from my Santa project in Making Cards Magazine...
I've got to say I really enjoyed working with this collection. It was just so lovely to put together and I am loving the images and papers - well done Docrafts! For this card I used the Jolly Santa A4 Die Cut and Paper Pack. I also added some ribbon, lace, pearls, button and twine.
Ooo it's the last Saturday before Christmas..today I am working in the shop and I am hoping it will be busy as we are starting our Christmas sale today. I am also meeting up with a friend for lunch that I haven't seen in ages. So here is my second Santa card from Making Cards Magazine...
Not quite sure why it's come out so blue so apologies for that. Everything on this card was made using the Jolly Santa Die Cup and Paper Pack by Docrafts. I also added some ribbon, lace, pearls, twine and a button to finish.
Hope you have a great day whatever you are up to :)
Well it's only 7 sleeps until Christmas, yay! I am almost prepared just got a few more bits to get wrapped ready. So exciting just love Christmas, I also can't wait to have a few days off to spend with my family. Talking of Christmas I have a few project to share with you...
Today's card is from a project that I made for Making Cards Magazine. I used one of this years new Docrafts collections called Jolly Santa. I used the A4 Die Cut & Paper Pack for the papers and decoupage topper. I mounted everything onto dark red card. I also added some ribbon, pearls, lace and a doily.
I will be back tomorrow with my second Santa card :)
Well for once I didn't get totally drenched on the school run but give it a couple of hours the afternoon run I probably will! So other than school runs I have been making lots of cards for my upcoming magazine projects. I thought I would share one of my Joanna Sheen cards that were made for Making Cards Magazine using the freebie papers...
I'm normally into the Victorian style but I think these bunnies are actually quite sweet. They look a lot like my Sylvanian Families scenes that I do on my other blog. Everything on this card is made using the free papers & toppers all I added was some kraft card, ribbon and a rhinestone cluster.
I am back with my third and final card from my Fairy project that was made for Crafts Beautiful. I am loving these fairies at the moment so look out for another project using them soon.
For this card I used The Hobby House Christmas Magic Toppers and paired it with some Dovecraft Papers called Glad Tidings. Everything was mounted onto green card. I also added some lace, ribbon, die cut sentiment and some pearls to finish.
Is it me or has this week gone really slowly? It seems to be dragging on but the weekend is finally here. I am so looking forward to my day on Sunday, final bits of xmas shopping to do, mostly food tho. So here is my second card from my Christmas Fairies project..
This card pretty much uses all the same products from yesterday. The Hobby House Christmas Magic Toppers, Dovecraft Glad Tiding Paper Pad, Ribbon, Lace, Pearls & a Die Cut Sentiment.
I will be back tomorrow with my third and final card from this project.
Today is the start of one of my Christmas projects that was recently in Crafts Beautiful Magazine. I really love The Hobby House Toppers and must get round to using them more. The designs are great and pre-coloured which is awesome for me as I'm always short of time lately.
For this card I used the Hobby House Christmas Magic Toppers and teamed them up with Dovecraft Glad Tidings Paper Pad which coordinates perfectly with these toppers. I mounted everything onto dark red card and added some lace, ribbon, pearls and a die cut sentiment.

So it appears my blog posts haven't been publishing so I am gonna rewrite the whole post and see if that works :) I have so much to show you this month so pretty please blogger..work! Today I am sharing my cute little bunnies project that was made for Making Cards Magazine.
Hello, I am back as promised with my second card from my Octavia Frosted Winter project that was made for Making Cards Magazine...
Everything is pretty much from the Polkadoodles Frosted Winter Octavia CD Rom the sentiment, embellishments, image and papers that is. I mounted everything onto black card and distressed all the edges. There is loads of glitter on this too but it doesn't show up too well in pictures. I also added some gems to the Christmas tree along with some ribbon and a resin flower to finish.
Hope you have enjoyed my project and I will be back soon.
As December is now upon us I think it's time to share lots of my Christmas makes that have been in the craft magazines lately. Many of these I made in June & July so I have been itching to share them all with you. Up first is one of my latest creations for Making Cards Magazine...
I absolutely LOVE how this card turned out. All the images, embellishments and papers are from the Polkadoodles Frosted Winter Octavia CD Rom. I love the icy and winter feel to these. Credit to Nikky for deigning such a fabulous CD Rom - it's awesome. I only added some lace and gems to this card oh and I also distressed the edges too.
I will be back tomorow with my other card from this project :)
Sorry I haven't been able to post anything for a little while. I have been having problems uploading photos to blogger across all my blogs and have seen many of you have too. It's so frustrating when that happens and you need it to work but hey fingers crossed this works! So here is another quick card that was in Making Cards Magazine made using the free papers.
Gotta say think this angel looks like a bit of a rascal! Aside from the papers I simply used some Die-namics Zig Zag Circles to cut the circle which was then embossed. I then added some ribbon and some gems, simples!
