Wreaths Aren’t Just For Christmas 

Good morning crafty friends, I hope you’re all well and enjoying the lovely weather. I have three commissions left to tackle then I get 10 days off, yay!!

So, today I want to share a project that a created for this month’s Docrafts workshops at Hobbycraft…

This card and tag were made using the new XCut Woodland Stag Wreath Die Set. I wanted to create a pretty non-festive card and tag to show the versatility of the die set.

I used an adhesive chalk sheet in the middle and embossed the sentiment with white embossing powder. The cute flowers are simply punched out, shaped then dotted about the wreath.

I layered Mr Smith’s Workshop papers for the background which I spritzed with water then distressed and lifted up the edges. The berries have been coloured then Anita’s 3D Gloss has been added on top.

I hope you like it!

Work beckons, have a great day!

Weekend Demo Makes

Good morning crafty friends, I hope you’re all having a great week. It’s crafty chaos here as I get stuck in and get a pile of things done before we go on holiday on the 25th. I can see the light at the end of the tunnel!

I had double Docrafts demos over the weekend in Southampton and Portsmouth. Here are some of my makes from the weekend…

This is the Creativity Essentials Meadow stamp which I’ve simply water coloured and used a paintbrush to add splatters.

This simple crackle technique card was based on Mags Woodcock’s project in Creativity magazine and was very popular. Well done Mags!

This is simply the XCut Heart Frame Cut & Emboss Folder with an Anita’s Foiled Decoupage and some pretty embellishments.

Back to Christmas makes today!

Have a great day,

A little Bit of Belle & Boo

Good morning crafty friends, I hope alls well in your crafty worlds. I’ll admit I’m on a bit of a go-slow here, I need a break! Luckily I’ll get one in 3 weeks, I can’t wait. We all need a break from crafting sometimes don’t we?

Anyway, I have some very cute cards to share today that were featured in Issue 96 of PaperCrafter….

I absolutely love this fabulous  range from Trimcraft, it’s perfect for summery makes.

There’s lots of gorgeous embellishments too, look at these cute flowers and wooden frame!

This shaker card is my favourite. I added Isle of Wight sand for a personal touch.

Belle & Boo is available at your local Trimcraft stockist.

Enjoy your day!
