It's Beginning .... ekkkkkk xxx

Afternoon all

I do hope to find you all well?? Are you getting ready for the Christmas??
The radio just informed me its 34 DAYS away ekkkk!! When you hear it like that it really makes you start to panic! I have to gifts so I'm like 10% finished hehehhe

I have been so busy with allocations the past few weeks and then orders that I haven't really had much time to make Christmas cards! All my ordered ones are done apart from a few but now I have to get my own started!! Plus fitting in more work, a wee demo next week then to hands on crafty classes oh plus craft club! Hmmm time is running away again lol

We did manage to finish our spare room tho so, we're half way there for getting the house ready for Christmas! My brother will be here and wanted it all nice for him instead of the dumping ground a spare room always becomes!

Anyways enough talk, here's a wee card I did manage to make 2 weeks ago 


I managed to make another of those Twist and POP cards




The papers are last years Hobbycrafts own collection and I coloured the wee birds with my Spectrum Noirs 
IG1, IG2, GB2, GB6, GB7, BT1, BT2, BT3, BT4, GT1, GT2, GT3, TN7, TN9, EB8
everything else was in my Christmas stash box

Hmmmmm Christmas??

It's beginning to look a lot like Christmas???

Well we have had snow, for about 40mins in Friday we had lots of snow flurries! It didn't lie because of all rain we've had the past few days but it was SNOWING woohoo

Anyways, I've been having a wee play with Gilding Wax, ehhhh trying that is! I've seen all the amazing results you can get with it and wanted to try, so plucked up the courage to open a jar!!



Ok, be honest, what do you think??
I tried but think I was too heavy handed with it but still enjoyed having a play! Think I'll try it on black card next time



All the pieces are from Sara's Signature range Festive Wonder, the Embossing Folder that I love, Snowflake die and the sentiment too! I used Centura Pearl touch of silver, some silver card, pearls and silver cord to finish it off!

I would like to enter the following Challenges
Craft for the Craic - Something Glittery
MAWTT - My Favourite Things SNOWFLAKES
A Snowflakes Promise - Christmas/Winter Theme

Will off to dig out the black card and see what I come up with
Happy Sunday everyone

more FOLDS xxx



Hi all me again

This time I'm back with the more Accordion Concept cards to share with you all

http://www.crafterscompanion.co.uk/new-c2158/new-products-c848/crafters-companion-diesire-create-a-card-accordion-cards-square-accordion-card-die-p27320 

 I loved the square one as I found it so versatile and can see it fitting in with my everyday crafting!

Here's what I made with it

 


this was used with the Ivy Square Overlay cut from core'dinations
 








and this HUGE 16 page fold card was used with the Holly Square Overlay and I used the Decorative Alphabet Dies to spell out Happy Christmas!

Remember and check out Crafter's Companion for the other styles in the Accordion range and maybe you'll spy some other bits for your basket hehehehe!

take care all and Happy Crafting

Its all about the FOLDS xx

Well hello my lovelies

I do hope you are all well on this damp summer day??
I'm busy busy busy but wanted to stp by and show you some new dies from the lovely Crafter's Companion

http://www.crafterscompanion.co.uk/new-c2158/new-products-c848/crafters-companion-diesire-create-a-card-accordion-card-circle-accordion-die-p27319


You take the fab die and cut as many layers you like and then take the decorative overlay die to finish off the card! At the moment there is 2 overlays for each Accordion shape, but who knows what the future will bring!

Here is some I made using the Circle Accordion die



I used the fab Jingle Bells overlay on this one 







and both of these used the Snowflake overlay 

I know its a bit early for Christmas but also I know some of you crafty folk like to start early!!

I loved making these wee cards(anything different and I'm happy heeee)! You'll find it a great rainy day project for some of you!!
Hope you manage to get your hands on them too! Find them all here!!

well until next time
