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 🙂

Baby Shower Tags

A lovely 3 day weekend thanks to a Bank Holiday Monday and I have so much to make. I wanted to make a start on my dad’s Father’s Day card and was due a die delivery today which is so appropriate for him but alas did not arrive, so I decided to crack on with an order someone asked me to make…. 25 Baby Shower Tags with specific colours of Blue, Pink and Silver.

I had alot of fun making these and when I sent over a proof of these they loved it ! which makes me a happy bunny. I will admit I have an alphabet stamp set but they were so fiddly so out came the laptop and printer which enabled me to create the personalised tags.

So tomorrow will see me doing more printing of background papers as have so many ideas in my head of what I would like to make 🙂

And relax ….

After a very manic week I am slowly getting all my happy mail ( well apart from a seller in China that sent me 4 embossing folders instead of 8 ! but am on the case with that ) and a lovely rare day off, I decided to play around with new dies, folders and stamps.

I have been after a Ribbon Awareness stamp for what seems ages and finally got a stamp set, although ribbon not as big as I would like, I must not complain.

These are nowhere finished to my satisfaction but as I said am only playing around.

Love .. Love .. Love WRMK

I just recently bought WRMK Precision Press  Stamping Tool from CraftWorld after reading so many fab reviews…Where has this tool been since I started !!

I know there are other varieties of this stamping tool out there and I am not going to make any comparisons as I don’t own any others nor would it be right of me to do so.

So what made me buy this ? I suffer from Tennis & Golfers elbow and after a while I get excruciating pains and have to stop, Not any more with this handy tool. I must admit my stamping is now so much better and so much easier. There are so many pro’s for this product…. Light, Compact. perfect stamping, can easily re ink an image if not correct and not have to worry about lining stamp up, layer stamps, card did not move when stamping …need I go on ?

If anyone is thinking about getting this or any other stamping tool my advice is DO IT !

It was so easy to stamp and I did 50 Wish Jar Little Notes within approx 2 hours from scratch.

A Little Note ….

I have a Wish Jar to make for a Christening soon and coming up for a design was baffling me as really did not want the traditional “baby” stamps or dies on the tags. After looking through Google it then hit me … Scribbled Flowers !

This was my first mock attempt and although I am pleased with them I do however have 50 …yes 50 tags to make ! I will be so happy when my WRMK Precision Press arrives as be able  to make 50 tags all with same design.

I then decided to keep playing around with this set and made this A Little Note Card

Busy Month …

Well since my last post I have been non stop ! Anyone else feel like December is just one crazy manic month ?

I decided to try some digi stamps, part of me felt it was cheating but on other hand I felt it was a massive help. I love all things Elf’s at Christmas and nowhere where I live sell’s Elf tags so I decided to make my own. I will be honest and admit I felt pretty good with myself as I don’t have any fancy photo editing suite, yet i made tags combining 2 images into one !

Monday saw my annual concert to see The Overtones, yet again another fab concert albeit one member was missing, but given fact he has personal health reasons which are 100% priority I totally understand and look forward to seeing the 5 boys next year.

I also had a couple of days out with my Goddaughter and Godson which I always enjoy and cherish. That afternoon both my godson and I did some baking and made cookies.

In between all this I had a couple of Toddler parties to take my godson too which were great and rounded one party off by visiting local garden center to see Reindeers !

I have somehow managed to fit in my last bit of Christmas Shopping …. Phew ! Now for the task of wrapping them off for Santa to deliver.

But it’s not all over yet ….. another week another mad one, by time Christmas Eve comes i will probably be flaked out from exhaustion

Here is a snippet of what I have been doing

Christmas Cards Completed

Am so pleased with myself. As a  still relatively newbie to crafting / card making I think I have come along away. What started off as a simple reindeer stamp card I have slowly gotten better, Yes I still have alot of room for improvement but for me this is a great milestone.

I am so pleased with how I have finished the last few cards for family members. I will admit I know there is a slight mistake with the Nutcracker card but overall I am besides myself, just glad I got them all made as now begins the hectic month of Decemeber for me.

I also made some tags for Snowman Soup which i will be making very soon.

What do you think ? Have I come along way ?

As always any feedback greatly welcomed 🙂
