So thats the last of my Christmas paper crafting for this year a little scrap book for my Nan and some cards for family tomorrow


Another Christmas card

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!!


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 they have got some gorgeous christmas papers to print off.
then i found this 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
Hopyfully you'll love these sites as much as i am …

Nooo not again!

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

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!!
