Icy Makes xx

 Hello you lovely people

Have you been crafting recently?? Keeping busy while more restrictions come in??
With the darker days coming in I've decided to challenge myself and creating something I have wanted to make for a while! I won't say much because I think my first attempt will be a fail! But I will try .... keep following for more updates and maybe I'll share what I've been doing soon??? Is there something you've always wanted to to?? Why not try!!

The latest edition of Die-Cutting Essentials 70 is OUT NOW

The free cover gift is a fab Candle die that is perfect for all you're Christmas cards or makes. I had so much fun creating some Gift Ideas with the die 

Using the die as my inspiration for all my makes 'shapes' I created a fun Christmas Decoration as well as a little Gift Bag. But my favourite piece is the Tea Light Holder

Using the die to create my shape I added vellum to soften the light and coloured with my markers. 

I think these would look fab along a Christmas Table or along a Fire Place with some faux twinkle candles!

Not only is the magazine jam packed with ideas using the die it has more amazing die-cutting ideas from the Design Team for you to try. Get you're copy here

Well I best get something done while the puppy snoozes or I'll just sit here looking online for pretty craft bits that I DON'T need hehehehe

Until next time! Stay safe

Little Rudolph xx

Hello Lovelies

I hope you are all well and cosying into Autumn?? We had a wee weekend away on some little adventures with Jura to the Highlands! She was great and only had one wee accident involving bursting the Travel Crate lol after that she was super! She didn't like the rain but loved the attention of all the people and other dogs. Hubby has decided he needs a sign with her name, age and breed or charge a £1 for each time lol she's just too cute

Found a sign for her in Oban

Didn't like the rain

and found the perfect spot for snoozing!

A great wee first holiday for her

I have't been working still but have manages to finished some bits I started for the Use Your Craft Stash Challenge! Does It count that I had bits cut out for months?? So here is R

Here is my 'little' Rudolph the Red Nose Reindeer
The file is one I found on Etsy that you are suppose to print out, cut and piece together but I turned it into an SVG File. the fawn dense sit perfectly and the back has a little space but it still looks ok with his little gloss Red Nose. I also added holes to the moon so I could add the light to shine through

When I first got this I though it would be about 10 inches but its actually 21!!!! I've placed a Distress Oxide pad that I used on the moon to show the size.
Used old old old yellow 12x12 papers that I don't think I would have used any other times as it was soooooo bright, lots of brown off cut 12x12 pieces and glossy accents to the nose along hot glue to hold it all together 

I also created my S, an oldie but a goodie from my fav SVG Files

My little Snowman Treat Box from SVG CUTS. The file is called Christmas Open House and has some fun Christmas home gifts makes

I used my large stash of white card with Silver Centura Pearl Card, Slate Grey card scraps, Scarlet Ribbon, Mulberry leaves and some Silver berries along with Nuvo Drops for the details

A wee video to show the sparkle hehehehe

Well I have to sort my craft room, reply to emails and get ready for hopefully getting back to my favourite ........ making things
Remember anyone can join us at Use Your Craft Stash so please come on over!!

Take care and stay safe
