I have been looking for some Family Personalised Prints and came across so many on Ebay which were mainly Welly Boots, which are all nice don’t get wrong and I even bought one for a good friend.
However thanks to Google I came across a free, yes FREE set of gorgeous Coat Hangers Watercolour set which were simply gorgeous and I had to grab them. So after a bit of tweaking I then made 2 Family Personalised Prints for a fraction of the cost they sell for on Ebay. All it cost me was price of an A4 Frame which are cheap enough if you look around.
I Hope the recipients like them as they are a christmas present. Have to love handmade gifts as I think they are more personal.
Here is a snippet of the coat hanger picture I made. The freebie came with lots of other coat hangers in various sizes and colours
Who said Family Prints had to be Welly Boots ?
Had a request to make an Art Deco Christmas Card, I was so taken with the outcome that I went on to make further art deco / vintage cards.
I was really pleased with how they all came out and hopefully all family members will like them
Was really struggling with what cards to make this year. Soon as I had an idea, another one popped into my head. Needless to say I never went with any of my ideas as came across these lovely images on Pinterest.
I did add some glitter to the jingle bells and stars on hat but unfortunately the camera did not pick it up
As I am now all done for future birthdays, I thought I would have a play around with christmas card designs. Yes I know it’s only February but believe me christmas will soon be upon us !
Am sure you can guess I enjoy playing around with these large alphabet dies ( and learning all the time ) but I am very happy with outcome of this card and pretty confident I will be making bulk of these.
Firstly I would like to apologise to anyone that follows my blog for my recent silence. I have been extremely busy with work, family, crafts and Christmas.
Over the pass few weekends I have made Christmas Cards for family and God Children. To be honest since last year I have seen a slight improvement in my crafting although I will be honest and say I am still nowhere near as good as alot of crafters out there but I am pleased with the cards I have made.
This will more than likely be my last blog post of 2017 as for the next few weekends I am busy so I will bid you all a Merry Christmas & All the best wishes for 2018. Hope you all have a lovely Christmas and family time. Stay safe and see you next year
Hope you like the cards 🙂
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 🙂
I had so much fun making these crafts with my Godson. Plus I think the candle makes a lovely keepsake for his parents.
So easy to make and so inexpensive too. For the candle artwork, we bought a candle for £1, some tissue paper and wax paper. Let the children draw on the tissue paper, wrap it around the candle with wax paper over the top, then heat it up with either hairdryer or heat tool. I will be honest and say I did do a tester one and found better effects with pens rather than crayons.
The Tree was simply a square piece of paper, folded in half ( to resemble a triangle ) then simply cut towards the fold. Open up and bend over and add decorations.
We also did the Candy Cane Hearts, so had a lovely time together crafting 🙂
Hope you enjoy. And incase I don’t get a chance ” Merry Christmas ” to everyone and have a brilliant festive season 🙂
