Circle Burst Christmas Cards

I had so much fun making these christmas cards. Soon as I worked out how to colour background I could not stop making these.

Am so in love with the Gnomes which came free with a magazine

Happy Anniversary

After my successful baking marathon for my gorgeous god daughter’s christening, I can now sit back and relax and craft ( or in my case attempt to craft ).

It is my eldest god daughter’s wedding anniversary approaching and I had two idea’s in my head that I wanted to create. Am almost happy to say the card’s came out pretty close to my image.

I am undecided on what one to use ! The couple and Paris does have significant meaning to them both, But I have to admit I do like the cute couple looking into the sunset. I am also pleased with how the sunset finished as I am totally useless with Distress Ink blending, I have tried all sorts of paper and this was watercolour paper.

All of the dies are from slow boat and unbranded but 1 love them

Elf Tags

I just love all things Elf / Elves at christmas, it sums up the magical season for me.

Again these are all from slow boat ( even the stamp ) and cut very well.  I did find these tricky to do as so delicate to hold let alone colour in. For the colouring I used Nuvo Alcohol Markers

These will be going on kids christmas sacks just hope they like them !

Just need to add hole and twine and job done 🙂

Testing Sunday

Before my upcoming hectic but happy weekend is upon me, I decided to finally have a test run with the edge dies I got from slow boat from China.

These cut like a dream and cannot wait to put them to good use when I need to make a card for a special event. Hardly have to use a pokey tool as the little pieces fall right out. BUT the one edge die on  top right hand photo, now that was another matter. I did struggle to begin with with this but as alot of other crafters have had same problem I feel relieved I am not doing anything wrong. Phew !

Aren’t they gorgeous ?

Christmas Cards

So sorry for delay in posting, I have been very busy with upcoming Christening.

I was asked to make 60 favour boxes which took me a weekend to complete. I then also decided to make a start on Christmas Cards using dies from slow boat from China. Have to say I am very impressed with how these came out.

Here are my makes from couple weekends. Hope you like them

Next weekend I will be very busy making 3 Cupcake Bouquets, Macarons and 2 Tiered Cupcakes for my soon to be god daughter 🙂

A Little Update

Sorry for lack of blog posts recently, I have been so busy with work, family and also prepping for an upcoming Christening.

As I mentioned previously my happy mail has almost arrived and now slowly drifting off as not waiting for many to arrive. Have to say I am so impressed with what I have so far and no doubt be ordering more in future.

As I had a rare weekend off, I finally got to test some of the dies and no doubt many of you will be familiar with the make of these. I did a trial run of Christmas Cards and also made a trial attempt at the ” favour” boxes as may need to make 60 of these for upcoming Christening.

Anyway here they are. Hope you like 🙂

Happy Mail Arriving

Well my happy mail from China is slowly all arriving, I say all arriving that is kind of incorrect as have quite a few more to come !

Had to have a play around with the new dies and I am very impressed. Also a while back I made my God daughters Christening Card, but when all the lovely dies arrived I knew I was not 100% happy with it so I re did it and I am alot happier.

Here are a few cards I made… Hope you like them
