my crafting day with my sis inlaw

Hi everyone. I just had to share this with you.I am so pleased at how it turned out . My sis in law came over today and we had a craft day and this is what we came up with.
Well we spent all day making her and i must say  it was fun. She is a Christmas elf and to be honest the photo doesn't do her justice. The mushroom is weighted so that it can be used as a door stop . she will be going towards my craft items that i am making for my craft stall on the 30th of this month. I also made this jar after my sis inlaw went home

This is it from all sides thanks for stopping by let me know what you think

LEJ Design texture

Hi thank you for stopping by . It's Tuesday again and I have another fabulous digi from that I have used on a design for this weeks competition.  I really loved doing this one because it gave me a chance to work with mulberry paper again which i haven't used in sooooooo long .  Any way This is how it looks :

and this is how i did it:

I started by gluing three pieces of hard board together two at 6x4 and one at 7x6

I then painted it with gesso and left it to dry  over night

I then took a metal brush and some mulberry paper and brushed it untill it resembled fur and then popped that on the back of the letter holder :
Then I added two very strong tubes two the back and painted the whole thing in pink acrylic then used a brown crackle paint . I then added some inca gold . Then the crowning glory was to add the fabulous digi from 

called Bashful Bear which I coloured with my copic markers I then modge podged all the painted areas, added some flowers that I hand made. These you can find to buy in my shop . and wala

I do hope it has inspired you to do something with texture and you will pop over to LEJ Designs and enter this weeks challenge .

fun card for christmas

Hi I have made this card for a fun competition called Tic Tac Toe on a face book site called Mad Crafters Giggles we were asked to make a card using a grid and i chose to use a fairy , the colours red green and silver . I also had to use bling and lace. Well i know that the lace isnt really there but i suppose you could say the die cut is kind of lace. 

Any way i first of all used a stamp and coloured the fairy in using my copic markers then i outlined it using a silver gel pen . I also used another stamp and edged it with holly.

I then folded my card stock and ran it through my big shot, leaving a portion of it over the edge so that it cut only half. and cut out another in green and one in silver.  


I added a smaller square in the inside of the card and a sentiment , and popped on all the embellishments and this was the result.

Thank you for stopping by.

My daughter 21st birthday card

Hi thank you for visiting me today . It's my daughters 21st birthday coming up , so I thought i would make her card a little early. I used some fabulous card that I bought in a new craft shop just opened down the road to me .

I used my cricut to cut out the pages , the 21 and the shape on the box . I used a template for the stand, although i think i will be treating myself to a die cut one in the near future. the flowers were from my stash the swirls were cut from my big shot . I hope she likes it . Lol she hates my home made cards

This was the box and stand I made.

LEJ DESIGNS Challenge splish splash splosh

It is Tuesday and time for another challenge over at LEJ Designs This is my design  for the splish splash splosh challenge.
The first thing i did was to colour in and LEJ Design  called soaking in the tub digi. I had to do it under a magnifying glass. I also used my copic markers to colour it . I then used a die cut to cut around it and used my inka Gold to edge it . I cut out a gold square and another blue one and used a fiskars corner punch, attached them to the card, i then cut out a small circle and used my martha stewart score board
I then popped it onto my bottle of bubble bath and added clear wrap and a gold ribbon
It made a lovely gift . I hope you will pop over and join in the fun at LEJ Designs . Here is a close up of the lovely digi image that i used. .
