Starting to get a grip on things....

Good evening everyone hope you are well. I feel pooped tonight, did my first bit of Christmas shopping today at Milton Keynes shopping centre didn't come away with much. I just kept coming up with ideas of things to buy and then make some nice boxes to put them in (more work for myself lol)....but hey it's a start!

So as you can see from the title I am slowly getting to grips with my Christmas cards. Quite a few pics to show (sorry), hope you like them...

I kept the layout the same for each card and just changed the papers and images, which again are from the Humphrey's Corner decoupage kit from Crafters Companion. I made the card base a 6" gatefold for a change and then added some bling and lots of glitter (which doesn't really show up) the papers I used were all freebies from craft magazines :0)

Thanks for stopping by!! :0)

Humphrey Xmas

Good evening everyone hope you are all well. Tonight I would like to share a card that I have made using Humphreys Corner die cut decoupage from Crafters Companion. I actually have loads of toppers all done now as I spent a couple of nights in front of the telly with my lap tray, nice and relaxing! Anywho here is the card......

I have made it into a 6"x6" card and decorated with some snowflakes, a sentiment and a bit of bling. Apologies for the rubbish photo struggling to get a good light.

Right well I am back off to organise my stash, I am upgrading......from the cupboard under the stairs to a bigger cupboard upstairs!! I don't have a spare room so I craft from my kitchen table so things can get a little messy lol. I am not really sure why I decided to start now but I have started so I need to finish. At least I won't be banging my head on the door frame anymore however I haven't really thought about going up and down the stairs to get my bits and bobs!! I suppose the exercise will do me good lol.

Thanks for stopping by :0)

Getting there

Good evening everyone, I hope you are all well. Sorry I haven't been around, I am struggling to get back into things to be honest. I think my mojo is still on its hols lol. Having said that I do have something to share with you, I have made some frame cards from the Snowman cd. Once the frames were finished I mounted them onto cards which I cut and scored to size on my boxer board (as the card size was not on my ultimate). I then finished them all off with a sentiment and some embellishments.

Well I hope you like them, thanks for stopping by :0)

I am back

Hi there blog land!! Hope you are all well? Well I am back from my holiday in Florida, I had an amazing time and the boys loved every minute! I am slowly getting back to reality, I haven't crafted for over 2 weeks and I am suffering with some serious withdrawal symptoms lol. Whilst I was on holiday my lovely boyfriend dropped me off at a Michaels craft store to do a little shopping, to be honest it was just like a scene from Super Market Sweep hehe.

As I don't have anything crafty to share I thought I would share some pics of some of the goodies brought back with me instead

Thanks for stopping by normal service should resume shortly :0)
