Christmas is coming ......

Hi Everyone,

Sorry I didn't manage my post last week it was a busy weekend followed by a week of an horrendous tooth infection, extraction and pain.

I have managed to catch up on orders and cards I needed to make for family birthdays and I have started on Christmas. I have made a couple of DT projects for Emerald City Crafts UK so watch out for them on the challenge blog in November and December. I have also started the odd card so will show you one I love using the freebies and inspiration from this month Papercraft Essentials

The gnome stamps and die cuts are fabulous. I have made loads so will be adding to the collection of Christmas cards over the next few weeks,

As it is Bank Holiday Monday here in the UK I am having a PJ and craft day, I want to get some art journaling done as it is a while since I have done this. Whatever you are doing have a great day

Alice in Wonderland ATC Set

Hi Everyone,

I hope you have had a lovely crafty week.

I have set myself a new Facebook Page up this week called Wedding Wishes. You will know how much I love organising weddings and creating all the stationery and decorations so I thought I would showcase them all and you never know if a bride to be likes what she see's I may have another direction to go in further down the line.

I said in my last blog that I was going to have a go at doing some ATC's and that is just what I did, It is my first attempt so let me know if I should carry on or give it up altogether!!!!

I created the backgrounds with mini inks from Papermania

The stamps are from Indigoblu

Not the best photo's I must admit but I hope you get the idea

I hope you all have a good week, I am off to do some planning for Wedding Wishes. Don't forget to pop a long and let me know what you think

Take Care

Love Gill xx

Man Cave

Hi Everyone,

I didn't get a chance to blog last week as we had a fab day out at Woodfest in Wales so this week I am showing you my design for Emerald City Crafts UK Challenge Blog. This month is challenge #2 and we are hoping for the fantastic response we had in challenge #1.

The challenge is always anything goes so I made a hanging welly boot for a man cave and gifted it to our Rick, Linda's husband, as he is an avid gardener.

I have used papers and ephemera from Emerald City Crafts and you can buy these on Linda Simpson Designs. The boot was on sale in Dunelm, I always pick up bits and bobs I can re-purpose especially when they are cheap.

So tonight I am going top have a go at making some ATC's (artist trading cards). I have never made them before so will share with you if they turn out well. I think I will go for an Alice in Wonderland theme.
