commented on my posts this last year
 a very 


I hope 2015 treats you all well

Mini Album #2

This album was made for one of my closest friends.
I jiggled the size about a bit, so I could
use 8x8 paper and A4 cardstock.
Extremely pleased with the finished album,
its part of my friend's Christmas presents
so I hope she likes it.
We will find out :-)

Santa's Sleigh

Well, me being me, I decided to cut out
a paper sleigh, make it up and decorate it.
I used a cutting file from my craft studio
and sized it to how big i wanted the sleigh
to be then cut out white card stock.
I think if I made another i would use
craft card instead, as its a little thicker.
I glued it all together and let it dry overnight,
then decorated it using some 12x12 paper 
I had.  I used embossing powders around the 
edge, the gold frantage powder, then
added some finishing touches, like the pompoms
and the gold edging.
I forgot to take photos as I was progressing, so here
is the finished sleigh, ready to fly.

Christmas Tree Decorations

I have had a great time making these
little Christmas tree or hanging decorations.
They are made using SU Christmas stamps,
some lace, cheery cobbler and old olive
ink pads.
Put together using a hot glue gun. they are sitting 
pretty in my tree now.

Seaside Wall Hanging

I made this little wall hanging back in the summer,
purely for fun and for my own wall.
I mst admit I am really pleased with how it
turned out and enjoy looking at it every day.

A Few More Cards

Just a few cards that I have recently made,
I hope that these are pleasing to the eye and
 would love for you to leave me comments please. 

Inspiration, help and a sense of acheivement

This little project was made with the huge help
and greatest of thanks to the wonderful Becka 
who not only helped me to make this album but who
also gave freely her time, guidance and materials.

I used G45 papers, covering kraft card and decorated
with nautical embellishments.

Inside is a little mini album, ready to take 
photos and journalling and complete
with tags to write on and use.

So thanks once again for the help creating this
and watch this space for more albums coming soon

Dr Who

I made this set of Tardis and Dalek especially for my friend.
I used a cutting file for my Silhouette Cameo and cut and built
as per the guidance. I must admit it took me a long time to finish everything
off but I enjoyed every moment of making them
and I really enjoyed seeing my friend's face 
when she opened the gift wrapping.
