Little Penguin

Another quick little card.

The penguin was originally placed without the snowflake behind it but while mum was here she didn't realise the stickles glitter glue was still wet and she lifted it. The red pen came off his scarf and onto the card!!! I wiped it off with a baby wipe and put the snowflake behind him to cover it up :)

The background is embossed with the cuttlebug snowflake folder and the stamps are Hero Arts.

Christmas card and Gift box using K & Co papers

This is an A5 size card made to order so I hope the person likes it! I always worry in case I get it all wrong :o

The papers are K & Co and the baubles are cut from the paper and the middle one is slightly raised with foam pads. The red card is embossed with the baubles cuttlebug folder.

The top of the box is scored across and lengthways using the scorpal board and the edges are punched with the EK Success scalloped scallop punch.

Hopefully more tomorrow....xx

1st Christmas card of the year....

Close up

I am so behind this year with Christmas it's unbelievable!

I don't think I'm going to get many cards made this year for I still have the (12 December) desktop calendar class to prepare for and 5 teachers/assisants gifts to do as well....

This is a simple little card with stamping and punching. The snowflake is punched and heat embossed with stardust embossing powder, then tied to the card with white fibres.

Toilet Roll Holder Mini Scrapbook Album - Little Girl

Hi again! I’ve been finishing this Toilet roll book for the next class on Saturday 14th.

Top View

Front Cover

Nappy Pin Button

The theme is ‘Little Girl’ and because not everyone coming to the class has a baby girl/granddaughter/niece I thought they could do a book on themselves, so I made this little book

I have never scrapped anything about myself as a child before so mum had a good look through all the old photos and these are what she came up with. The earliest she could find were of me at 4 months. It was so funny looking at them and Phoebe is convinced they are photos of her!! The quality/condition of them is very poor but I think they scanned pretty well and now I have a book to pass on to my children :)

The front and back covers are chipboard and the inside pages are 4 toilet roll tubes flattened and painted. Then covered with My Minds Eye Whirlybird papers and embellished with chipboard pieces, gems, flowers, stamps, ribbon etc. It was great fun to do and I just have 4 tags to make and decorate with quotes and journaling and it’s all done!

Thanks for looking :)

Ps. I have a place left in the class if anyone’s interested….
