Happy Music

Hi all,

I hope you have all had a fantastic christmas and are looking forward to the new year. I am pretty glad to be seeing this year out to be honest and am hoping for a much better one next year. If your off out celebrating tonight hope you have a good one.

We have a new challenge over at Totally Gorjuss today and this week our theme is :-


So we would like to see anything happy on your card, ie happy birthday, happy anniversary or even an image of something that makes you happy.

For my card I have chosen to interpret my theme as something that makes me happy. Now as I am going out tonight to celebrate the seeing the new year out as I always do with my family, Abbie and I will definately be throwing a few moves on the dance floor - which is something we love to do together and makes us feel happy. I have been making some samples up for Trimcraft and thought that this little decoupage image was just perfect.

The image and papers used are from a new range of Fizzy Moon products just being released and this is from the Boys Club decoupage and paper pad.

I hope you like my card and please do pop on over to the challenge blog and check out my team mates fabulous creations.

Singing sweet christmas greetings to you

Hi all,

This is my last scheduled post and my last of my chirstmas cards phew!!!!!

Todays card is one I made for my team mate over at Totally Gorjuss, instead of us all sending loads of cards we were paired up and just sent one to our partner. I have decorated the inside of the card and also put in a little pocket which held a little surprise for my partner.

I have again used a cute LOTV topper, Papermania papers, gorgeous dotty organza ribbon (am so glad I brought the roll of this and not just a metre or so), a fabric flower and a few gems to finish.

Thank you for pooping by my blog today, hope to be back soon with some new makes.

Happy Christmas Eve, hope you are all ready for the big day tomorrow and are not too stressed yet.

I have a few quick and easy cards to show you today that I made using the Tatty Ted ultimate decoupage pack, full of papers, decoupage and toppers. Fantastic for making quick cards, which I much prefer at christmas when I have loads to do (like I said before if you get a stamped and coloured image on your christmas card I really must love you lol!!!)

Olivers Cards

Hi all

Well I have finally finished making all my christmas cards, presents are wrapped, most of the shopping is done just the fresh items to get tomorrow and we are done. Housework is also planned to be blitzed tomorrow too then its party party party!!!!.
Although not sure how much partying Abbie and I are going to be doing, her cough doesnt seem to be getting any better and is now on antibiotics and I still have my horrible cold.

So just a few more christmas cards to show you over the next few days, then hopefully over the christmas holiday I will get a chance to make a start on using all my new lovely LOTV and Gorjuss Girl stamps and pretty papers I got from the NEC in Nov and are shamefully still sitting in the bag on my crafting cabinet.

So todays cards are Olivers, both have been made with LOTV die cuts, Dovecraft papers, a bit of ribbon and some fabby fabric snowflakes I found in my stash.

Snowman frolics

Hi all,

Well the weather here is pretty miserable today, which just about matches how I feel. Had a bit of a rough night with Abbie and her cough and today I have a stinkin cold of my own.

So I managed to make a few more xmas cards yesterday whilst Abbie had a nap so nearly there now!!

Today I have a couple more cards I made using the Craftwork Cards Frosty & Friends collection. The die cut images are great and very easy to colour and all the items just match perfectly which makes for quick and easy cards.

With so many to do - I have stopped doing individual ones and am doing our house to your cards!!

This one was made for my little brother Charlie

Thanks for popping by my blog today, hoping to get caught up with some commenting later as am very behind.

Someone Special

Hi all

I am a day late (yet again!!!) posting my Totally Gorjuss challenge card. Unfortunately Abbie has come down with a nasty cough - just in time for christmas - and she took up most of my day yesterday.

Anyway this weeks theme is

Someone Special

And we would like to see a card/creation made for someone special in your life, and it doesnt have to be a christmas card.

So here is my creation, my best friend always asks me to make a few cards for her close family. So this card is one I made her to give to her FIL. (so my someone special is my BF and I made a card for someone special for her)

The image is a LOTV topper (yet again!!) and I used some old Papermania papers. Everything has been matted onto Kraft and I added a couple of pearl snowflakes to finish.

Thanks for popping by my blog today and please do pop on over to the challenge blog and check out my team mates creations.

Snow Gifts

Hi all,

Well not long to go now before the festivities begin, I am really looking forward to christmas this year as I actually have all the time off. Having the shop meant we were only closed for christmas day, boxing day & new years day so had to work over christmas, this year obviously will be different and I plan to enjoy every minute and perhaps partake in a glass or two of the good stuff lol!!!

Anyways I was going through my christmas cards last night and realised I am a long way from finished, most cards are done for friends and neighbours, but I still need to some more special ones. Being as I am at the get together on Saturday I thought I better get moving.

This card is from the kids to one of their aunties. I have used a LOTV topper and some Papermania papers from a couple of years back. The flowers are from Hero Arts and a bit of ribbon and pearl snowflakes to finish.

Thanks for popping by my blog today.

Muffin Tin Advent

Hi all,

Well its mid week again and that means its time for a new challenge over at My Mums Craft Shop. This week our theme is

Cute & Funky Christmas

We are sponsered by the fabulous

Who are giving the winner 3 images of their choice.

So for my creation this week I have been inspired by a magazine from last year, where the designer had made an advent calendar from a Mini Muffin Tin. I thought the idea was so cool and funky it was perfect for this weeks challenge. Now it didnt come cheap i'll tell you the mini muffin tray was £15, then I spent around £10 on different packs of embellishments, plus £3 for the magnetic tape - thats without the choccys to go in it  and I had to make 2 so the kids had 1 each lol!!!!

Anyway to make it I basically I cut 24 squares from white card (using my nesties so they were all exactlly the same), then die cut 24 smaller squares from co-ordinating papers and added a little embellishment and glittery number onto each square. On the back of the square I have stuck magnetic tape round the edges so that they stick to the tin, but  can also be easily removed to get to the treats. To finish I tied ribbon through the holes at the top and bottom of the tray.

Now I am really sorry about the poor picture quality, I cant seem to get a good shot of it at all - roll on christmas when I can get my new camera!!!. This pic was took on my phone as it came out better than the ones took with my camera - how bad is that lol!!!!!

So I hope you have been inspired by my project, and although time consuming it was very easy to make. Please do pop on over to the challenge blog and check out my team mates creations.

Tatty Sketch

Hi all,

Thought I would show you another set of christmas cards we made in class. This time the girls followed a sketch and we used the Tatty Ted christmas papers and wooden stamps. Again the cards are simply embellished, but with plenty of scope for their own interpetation.

Heres the sketch and measurements in case you want to try it yourself

Bright and Funky Christmas

Hi all,

Thought I would pop on today and show you a collection of cards I have made using the Papermania NOEL Collection. The card is one that I taught in class and is called a buckle card. All the images and papers are from the same collection so match perfectly, as I teach 4 classes a week & including my sample I make 5 of the same card. So I try to use different papers and different images each time - its also been a great help in getting my christmas cards made too. The cards are quite simply embellished as I try to keep my class cards quite easy to make.

Thanks for popping by my blog today, please pop pack tomorrow to see my creation for Totally Gorjuss.

Christmas Flower

Hi all,

Its time for a new challenge over at My Mums Craft Shop and this week the theme is

Tradtional Christmas

We would like to see tradtional type images, colours etc on your creations

We are sponsered this week by

And they are offering the winner $15 to spend in store.

So for my creation this week I chose to do something a bit different. I have been wanting to have a go at a candle for ages and have been put off cause I thought it would be tricky. Well I think I was worried for nothing and after some very careful colouring on tissue paper - managed to transfer my image to the candle with no problems at all. I then made a base using a Marianne Die to create my flowers and attached them to a Die cut ring which I then slid over the top of the candle. I made a matching card and as the image was very tradtional and not at all cute, thought it would be a perfect set to give to my MIL for xmas (who is 83 - so not into cute!!!).

The image is a Penny Black stamp called Christmas Colour and the papers are from Papermania called - at Christmas Time.

Well I hope you like my little creation, please do pop on over to the challenge blog and check out my team mates fabulous cards this week.

Wrapped up warm

Hi all,

So sorry for not being around this week, firstly my kids broke my dongle and I have had no internet all week. New one finally came in post today and so am back online at last whoop whoop!!!!.  Also I have been having a few health issues and not feeling 100% and so my mojo has been right out of kilt and I haven't made any cards to show anyway really.

Now I know its late as the challenge started on Wednesday, but todays card is for the new challenge over on My Mums Craft Shop. This week the challenge is

Keeping Warm

And so we want to see some nice cosy images on your creations, or maybe you could even make something to keep us warm and cosy!!!

For my card I have used a very sweet LOTV printed topper and made a very girly and sparkley card. (this one could possibly be Abbie's card this year). I kept the layout simple and added a heart doiley, some very glittery snowflakes and some gorgeous ribbon I found in my box. A few pearl added just to finish.

The card was a bit hard to photo, due to the pastel colours so sorry for the pants piccy. It looks much better and a bit more colourful IRL!!

Thanks for popping by my blog today, please pop on over to the challenge blog and check out my team mates fabby creations.

Back tomorrow with my card for Totally Gorjuss.
