Fabulous Friday - Merry Christmas everyone!

My oh my!  Is it really nearly Christmas!

For some reason, I wasn't very organised this year but hey we got there in the end.

We are still running our challenges over at Polkadoodles over the Christmas season, so if you get anything new for Christmas and can't wait to play, then come along and enter your creations.  Our challenges are always Anything Goes.

For my creation this week, I used a simple panel from the wonderful Studio 12 - Picknix 2 - Gingerbread Twist collection.

I used four panels and cut three of them down at different levels, to add dimension to the canvas.

I couldn't resist adding some snowtex to the edges and some glitter pen to the lettering - it's so much more sparkly in person :-)

I was trying to get a better picture with this one - but it's didn't really work, did it LOL!

That's it from me till after Christmas.

Wishing you all the joys of the season, hope that you are able to spend it with your families and friends.

Simply Saturday - Christmas Post

It's that time of year - didn't you know !  Christmas posting.

You all know how expensive it can get these days to post cards, either internationally or locally.

So, I made some really flat cards for posting, adding a little sparkle with a Sakura Gel Pen.

The first two cards are from the Polkadoodles Baked with Love collection.

These last two are from the wonderful Winnie Winterland collection.

I made several of these - really quickly with my Silhouette Cameo - just printing, cutting, inking and sticking :-)

A short post for today.  Hope you are all getting organised for the up coming festivities.

Shannon is due home from college, this coming Friday, for the Christmas holidays.  Only 6  more sleeps :-)

Thanks for stopping by today.

Happy crafting.

And here we are in December!  Shannon will be home two weeks today for the Christmas holidays - yay :-)

Polkadoodles challenges are now always Anything Goes - so why not go along and enter.

I have used the wonderful Festive Christmas collection for my quick card today.

Using one of the pre-made frames and then adding some dimension to the layers.

For the inside a merged the layers to keep it flat and added a sentiment.

I also used some gold glitter pen on the doves and the heart - it's difficult to see but looks lovely in person.

I love this colour blue.  What colours do you prefer at Christmas?

Fabulous Friday - A bit of a Weave

Happy Friday everyone.  Are you having a great week?

The clocks go back an hour, this weekend, here in Canada. Are you ready for the darker mornings and shorter daylight days?

Editing the above sentence for my husband - who is so bored at work that he is nosing at my blog LOL!

"The clocks go back an hour, this weekend, here in Canada. Are you ready for the lighter mornings and darker early evenings.  You also get an hour's extra sleep - if hubby minds his own business he might too LOL!"  luv you xx

I'm not to keen on these Winter days, but hey that's what my craft room is for - to cheer me up :-)

Anyways, we have the start of new challenge over at Polkadoodles.  All our challenges are now Anything Goes, so what's stopping you - you craft - you enter :-)

Our DT brief this fortnight was to weave some paper for our creations.  I have used one of the new collections - Winnie Winterland for this card today.  I started off by weaving my papers.

Then I used the stocking from the collection, to make a window in my top layer of the card (using Silhouette Design Studio).  Then all I had to do was place the weaved piece underneath :-)

I cut out another stocking a little bit larger than the window, so that I could use the top of the stocking for my card.  I then used the Flowers 2 Die and the Super Sprigs Die to add a flower to the top of my stocking.

For the inside I used one of the tags and made it a little wider, that's why I love working with digital collections, you can change to suit your needs :-)

I used another tag and bow for the front, adding a little foam tape to add some dimension to the bow and a little bit of glitter.

I love how this turned out and loved the paper weave.

I hope you all have a fabulous weekend.

I am entering this card in the following challenges.
