Today it is my turn to post on the Snazzys Design Team Blog
I created a shabby recipe booklet.
For details of how I made it, just pop over to the blog. I'd be really happy if you left me a comment there lol
Here is a little Christmas box. I think I went a bit over the top with embellishing it....
It was just the perfect project to use up all these bits of left over Christmas paper. (Sorry in places it went a bit messy, - it's quite fiddly to make. I think if I did it again I would make a better job of it...)
The little box maybe doesn't look like much, but it opens in a really clever way and I was rather intrigues by the construction. It is just perfert for holding a few choice chocolates
A tutorial on how to make a box like this and a really pretty example can be found here
I got this sweet little Waltzing Mouse stamp set the other day and then never used it because I got side tracked into other things.
Anyway, here is a small little easel( sorry I took the pictures when it was dark already so they are pretty bad...
I coloured the image with a mixture of Copics markers, coloured pencils, acrylic pain and of course some glitter...
After all my Christmas cards I had quite a few bits and pieces left over and decided to challenge myself to use them. Here are three tags:
The stamps used are little peg stamps from Rubberstamp Tapestry. Not used those for ages, they don't seem to be very fashionable right now (isn't it funny how you get fashions in crafting also...)Ah well, we can't use Tim Holtz all the time can we now. I do like him ( a lot) but sometimes I think there is just a little too much TH stuff out there. (It's fine you can scold me if you want lol)
Anyway here for the detail:
The last one uses Bo Bunny paper and the stamp that came with the December issue of Craft Stamper.
Here is an ornate sort of Christmas card for a male person in my life who certainly is not into anything cute or vintage images..... So no ribbon or flowers or anything this time. Still, I think it kind of works....
It's yet another easel using pion papers and embossingfolders etc.
I have rather fallen in love with the mood of a Scandinavian Christmas this year. I love the designs and papers from Vivi Gade and the Pion Design papers.
Here is a collection of projects I have been working on:
This is a collection of little folded boxes and stars.
Well, I decided that for once I would really be on time... I don't think that Kate Crane who hosts this challenge has even put up the link yet, but hey, I can always add it later.
Happy November everyone and here is my page:
And here is October all filled in
To do the background for November I used mainly Distress Stains in Stormy Sky, Weathered Wood and Vintage Photo, to give that gloomy November weather feel. Like usual I used some paper napkins and a TH stamp, The image on the right was in my stash, it's probably Graphics Fairy, the little steampunk boy is a freebie from Land of Nod studios.
Just got a whole lot of new stamps from a brilliant place called the Stamp Smith. This is the image that I first saw on Docraft and really liked. I asked the friend who has used it in an ATC, where she got it. Well she borrowed it from a friend who got it from ebay as a one off. But.... it had a title. I googled the title, and hey presto found the site. They have great stamps and offer a really friendly fast service. I highly recommend them!
