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…

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

Winter Reindeer Coat of Arms

Hi Everyone…

Welcome to Blogmas Day 16

Today’s project is a Winter Reindeer Coat of Arms made from a reindeer head I bought in stampers grove and the plaque is cut from a cat food box 🙂

The reindeer looked like this before I started

I took out some mod podge matte and some Papermania decopatch papers

paper-mache-paper

I painted the whole thing with white gesso as a base coat so that the papers would pop when they were glued once they covered the entire reindeer head.

The base of the head was covered in clear glitter, and I stuck some glittery snowballs on the sides pf the plaque, it was finished off with a wooden snowflake dipped in versamark ink and a coat of white encrusted embossing powder applied and when melted I sprinkled some iridescent glitter over top to make it sparkle..

and finally the reindeer was centred and stuck down onto the plaque and it’s done.

Tiny festive Notes

Hi Everyone!

I’m back 🙂  I had a horrid chest infection and the flu that wiped me out for 2 weeks, all better now though 😀

I was sitting at work on Friday looking at my tiny wee post it note pad on my desk and thought to myself, that would look good with a wee cover on it.. so I brought it home and gave it a makeover 🙂

This would be an ideal gift to leave on co-workers desks, I gave this one a masculine feel as you know what men are like about christmas its all bah humbug 😉 … you could always make a set of these and package them up all pretty and use as a stocking stuffer (I may do this next week and record a wee video just need to buy more post it’s)
