Blogmas Day 24

Hello everyone!

It’s Christmas Eve! … How did that fly in so fast, I just want to wish you all a very merry christmas and good health and best wishes for the new year.

I am so glad that I managed to keep up with Blogmas, it was quite the challenge, but I did enjoy it lots.

My final project is a curvy keepsake box and the die for this is from Stampin Up and the tag from Tim Holtz

I love the cardstock that I used it is by American Crafts .. I got it from TK Maxx last year and forgot I had it!

The box below and tag waiting to be put together once it is filled with chocolates

Festive Tray

Hi Everyone!

Welcome to Blogmas Day 9!

I made it ….. by the skin of my teeth with today’s project 🙂

I still have a few bits n bobs to add to this but it is almost there so thought I would share it as is..

I am at Stampers Grove tomorrow making festive trays with the lovely ladies and this is sample tray No. 2

festive-tray

These trays are perfect for filling with goodies (tea/coffee/biscuits or toiletries/perfume/makeup or even sit a dolly or a big teddy in the middle and wrap up in cellophane with a big bow on top..

I want to add some glittery snowflakes (using the Tim Holtz dies I used earlier in the week) along the outside edges just to finish this off but I will need to do that tomorrow morning.

I’m off to bed now as it is an early start for me in the morning, then I will see you all tomorrow evening for another blogmas project… I’m thinking it might be a gift box 😉

As always, I appreciate you coming round

Purple Rain-Deer

Hi Everyone..

Welcome to Blogmas Day 6!

Today’s Christmas crafty project is a couple of purple reindeer Glitter and Shimmer 🙂

purple2

I have made these for Alex at work’s daughter to hang on her wee christmas tree, I made the glittery one first and I think If i was making another glittery one I would give it a base layer of paint the same colour of glitter I was going to cover it with, the reason being, if you look hard enough you can see the paper mache brown shining through… did i mention i got these at hobbycraft reduced to 50p each.. i love a wee bargain

But as this will be going on a Christmas tree I don’t think you will notice it too much..as after the glittery one was finished, I painted the other one with Imagination Crafts Lilac Mist Starlights paint… i like this one better

I forgot to mention that I gave the glittery one a good old spray with Crafters Companion shiny varnish spray to keep the glitter in, as it sheds like crazy

I really need to get my christmas cards made, so tomorrow will be a card post 🙂

As always, thank you so much for popping round and I will catch you all tomorrow 🙂

I made them nice and sparkly with pink and white glitter card, I also used a punch set that I bought in Hobbycraft a month or so ago, you get 4 small punches in a pack.. hearts flowers, circles and stars..

I love how these turned out and I will be sending these to a special wee girl I know who will just love them 😉

I nearly forgot to mention, I fancied doing a blog post for every day up until christmas day a bit like vlogmas instead more of a blogmas 🙂

As always, thanks for popping round

See you tomorrow for day #2 of Blogmas
