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

Blogmas Day 22

Hi there everyone,

A very warm welcome to my blog and to Blogmas Day 22!

I have a quick and easy project for you this evening… I needed to make a gift wallet, now normally I would make these from scratch, but with time ticking on and a million and one things still needing done I opted for the quickie option and it is a good one to keep under your hat.

I used a Papermania Geometric Gift Wallet and added some chipboard elements to make it more christmassy

m-gift-wallet

supplies list :-

  • Papermania Geometric Gift Wallets
  • Scrapiniec Chipboard Snowflakes
  • Letter M Chipboard Alpha
  • Imagination Crafts Starlights Pain in White Gold
  • Glue

This is the reverse side of it… I do have a blog post and a you tube video on how to make these envelopes from scratch if you are interested in making some for yourself

m-gift-wallet1

I love how it turned out and i even stuck some of the unused snowflake arms that I chopped off the top right snowflake into the letter M to give it a bit of dimension

As always thank you so much for popping round and I will see you for Day 23 tomorrow

Blogmas Day 18

Hi Everyone!

A warm welcome to Blogmas Day 18!

I absolutely LOVE today’s wee project, it is a great idea for a last minute gift or stocking stuffer…

finished.jpg

All you need is an inexpensive picture frame, give it a wee lick of paint, add a photo and embelish the front and you have a lovely gift to give just in time for christmas..

I have a few of these wooden frames, I got mine at Stampers Grove, I have a couple left over for future projects… and you don’t even need to paint them you could use a varnish or wood stain and keep it natural

wooden-frame

Supplies List:-

  • Wooden Frame
  • Imagination Crafts Starlights White Gold Paint
  • Gold Pine Cones from Hobbycraft
  • Hot Glue Gun
  • Photograph of Isla our Springer Spaniel
