Another Christmas card

Image
When ever i make cards for people i like to always make what suits them, not just make up a batch the same and send them out. So i was looking for something a bit different for a friend of mine and came up with this, i used basic cream card stock for the card, then layered it with a dark red piece then the picture. I then finished it off by inking around the red card and putting on a black ribbon and the Christmas greeting stamp

Busy Busy

It's been a crazy few days, lots going on with the boys at school so not had much time for any crafting, I've got a few projects in mind for tomorrow when i get home from college. I'll get photo's posted as soon as I've done but until then, stay safe and Happy crafting!!

Freebies!!!!

Image
I've woke up far too early, i like to forget that there is a time before 6am, but here i am been awake since about 4.30am and no chance of sleeping so i've been doing some web surfing and found some great craft freebies. We all love to play around with new material and there's nothing better than getting something free so i thought i'd share with you some of my favourite finds of the morning.

1st up there is http://www.wildwarehouse.com/christmas-papers/cat_37.html they have got some gorgeous christmas papers to print off.
then i found this http://freesvgs.blogspot.com/ they have got an awesome cutting file to use with SCAL it's a card with a snowflake design on the edge of it
There are so many cutting files on there i can see some of them appearing on my Christmas cards :)
One more site i wanted to share with you, this one has 100's of links to other sites with free SVG cutting files on http://freesvgfiles.com/
Hopyfully you'll love these sites as much as i am …

Happy crafting!

Nooo not again!

Image
I suspected yesterday that i would wake with sore swollen tonsils again and i was right, it has only been 5 weeks since i last had it, back to the doctors this morning for more antibiotics. At least i don't feel so bad this time, it's just sore so I'm back to eating only liquid foods again.

The good thing about this is that i will have to stay in t he warm today rather than go Christmas shopping in the snow so i can get plenty of crafting done :D


I managed to get 2 little cards completed last night before bed the 1st one i used a svg file I'd found on the Internet and and the other is an image from craftsUprint there is a link on my page for that site, I'll have a look and see if i can find the link for the penguin and post it if i can find it.

finally feeling Christmasy

Image
I've been struggling to get into the swing of creating anything for Christmas, it just hasn't felt time to do it, and with being ill on and off for the past 5 weeks now it's been tough finding the time and the strength to get motivated enough to create anything i was happy with. I've been colouring this one on and off for just over a week now but finally get it finished. I love these cute hanglar stamps!
Anyway here is the start to hopefully what will be a few Christmas craft mad days with the weather as bad as it is i don't think I'll be going out other than to work tomorrow.
Stay safe, Stay warm, and Stay Crafting!!

God Daughters christmas present

my 1st Bookatrix card

Image
My 1st attempt at a bookatrix card, i decided to make it into an easel card so it could stand up without the need of a stand. was feeling pleased with myself once it was finished.

New cutting file!!

Image
Brought me a new cutting file to make my Christmas cards with, really liking the possibilities with this one. Although i think it looks great with the vintage images on it :)

todays craft session

Image

Been a while

Not been very well so not posted for a while, well the cricut imagine went back, it was a nice machine but just not what i needed, i like to create a little more than that was allowing for. I went to the hobby crafts exhibition at the NEC and got lots of new ideas and lots of new products to play with too  :)
Now I'm finally feeling a bit better i can get crafting again, so much in my head that i need to make i can't wait!!!

I'll post some photo's later on of what I've made and until then Happy crafting!!

sooo excited!!

I only ordered my Cricut imagine on Thursday last week and it arrived today, i can't believe how fast it's come, can't wait to get using it!!
