Blogmas Day 17

Hi everyone and welcome to Blogmas day 17…

Apologies in advance for the late posting today, It was my work’s Christmas party last night and I am loaded with a stinking cold,no hangover tho πŸ˜‰

Today, I hauled myself up to my shed to get cracking with making my Christmas Cards for family, friends, neighbours and work colleagues ..

merry-christmas-a

I based it on a design I have already made but turned it into a 6×6 card, there is nothing better than recieving a good quality handmade card

So the card base measures 6″ x 6″ and the white inner layer is 4″ x 4″ then the dark grey layer is 3 7/8″ x 3 7/8″ and the patterned paper is 3 3/4″ x 3 3/4″

I have a ton of stuff still to do and I am hoping to get it all done tomorrow, because I have not started my Christmas shopping yet and time is ticking on πŸ˜€

See you tomorrow!

Festive Tray

Hi Everyone!

Welcome to Blogmas Day 9!

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

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 πŸ˜‰

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 πŸ™‚

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

purple1

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 πŸ™‚

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

Loving Life with a wee bit Twinkle

Hi everyone!…

I have come to the conclusion that with the best will in the world I am not going to be able to blog every day… but I will do my very best to πŸ™‚

Wee Rhona Sprocker Β has been ill and I have had literally no sleep for the last two days, thankfully she is better this evening, so I am hoping everything will return to normal!

So to make up for the lack of a post yesterday, I made 2 cards tonight…

One card uses one of the pre-made wee star embelishment’s made the other week, and the other one uses a wee 2″x 2″ project life piece..

supplies list :-

  • Daler & Rowney Watercolour card
  • Pink Layer is a scrap off my desk
  • Simple Stories 2×2 Loving Life piece
  • Sequins
  • Prima Distress Tool
  • Double Sided Tape & Foam Tape

p.s. Did I tell you I was doing a full day’s workshop in June? Β I will explain all tomorrow because what I make now for the next wee while will be my samples for the class πŸ˜‰

Just Breathe…

Hi everyone…

I nearly missed making a card tonight…

It was such a lovely evening, after dinner we took the dogs out on a huge big walk and didn’t get home till after 9pm..

So tonight’s card is another quickie.. using one of the star embelishments that I made last week πŸ™‚ I have to say they are coming in handy! Β I know I have only made 2 lots of embelishments and I need to make some more to build up a wee stock.. this week hopefully.

Sometimes we need to sit down and just breathe, and this was my inspiration for tonight’s card. Β We lead such a busy life these days that we sometimes forget to sit down for 5 minutes and relax

Just Breathe

supplies list :-

  • Daler & Rowney Watercolour card for the card base ( I love the thickness of it)
  • Cream cardstock
  • Lil Inker Designs stitched square dies
  • Tim Holtz Self adhesive words.. small talk
  • Blue and Green Sequins
  • Light Green Polka Dot Patterned Paper
  • Sizzix Primitive Stars Die
  • DCWV Christmas Stack of Corrugated Card
