Things That Go Bump In The Night

Good morning crafty friends, how are we all? I’m just enjoying a lovely cuppa before I start my creative day.

September seems to be disappearing at a very fast rate and before we know it we’ll be in October. I thought it was the perfect time to share these spooky makes that I created for the October issue of Papercraft Inspirations Magazine…..

These brilliant printable papers were designed by Naomi Skinner exclusively for Papercraft Inspirations. The template for this card can be found in the magazine.

They’re great for Halloween projects but also perfect for creating kids birthday cards too.

There are plenty of grisly ghouls and monsters to play about with, plus clever sentiments and backing papers.

I think this is my favourite as it’s has a portrait with moving eyes…scary!

You can download these wonderful papers over at Papercraft Inspirations.

Have a great day,

More Gorjuss Festive Makes

Good morning crafty friends, how are we all? This week is flying by so I wanted to have a quick catch up.

I’ve still been thoroughly enjoying the Santoro Gorjuss Christmas collection and wanted to share so more demonstration makes, this time in a different colour way…..

As you know, I love a shaker and this simple one was created using papers from the 12 x 12″ Santoro Gorjuss Christmas paper pack.

For the background on this card I used strips of the Santoro Gorjuss Craft Tape and framed the image with a felt frame.

I’ve used the thin craft tape again on this card to thread through the holes in the front then tie in a bow.

If you haven’t seen this fabulous collection yet then pop over to docrafts.

Have a productive day,

A Gorjuss Christmas

Hello crafty friends, how are we all? I can’t believe we’ve hit September already, where did August go? As usual things are very busy here but I thought I would grab a cuppa and catch up.

So, in my line of work Christmas starts very early (my first project this year was back in February) and I get to play with lots of lovely festive ranges. The one I’ve been most excited about this year is the Santoro Gorjuss Christmas range from West Design……eeeek!

I got my mitts on a small amount of product months ago which I used to create this cute jar for a product catalogue front cover. Finally, about a month ago I got to see the whole collection in all its glory! I wasn’t disappointed…..

Santoro Gorjuss fans will adore this fantastic collection. All our favourite characters are included and there’s a subtle festive scene running through the beautifully drawn papers.

Also, for the very first time, Santoro have included festive sentiments to complete your makes. I am absolutely loving this collection and look forward to demonstrating it over the next few weeks at my West Design demonstrations at The Range.

You can check out the whole collection here.
