Handmade Pressies

Well when you read this I will be up the airport waiting for my plane to take me to the States so have scheduled this.

This year for christmas I decided to try something new for pressies. I had seen a lot of scrabble frames on Pintrest and decided to have a go myself and here is what I made. 

Top 2 frames are 8 x 8 inches squares. 

This one was a 12 x 12 inch square frame for my mother in law to include all her children, grandchildren and great grandchildren and their partners.

Think I may be making more :-)

Commissioned Christmas Card

First of all I would like to wish you all a very new year and hope 2018 will bring health, wealth and happiness to you all.

The card I have to show you today is a commissioned card I have done for a friend of mine whose wife is also a crafter and a good friend. 

For the card I have used an image from the Twiggy & Toots festive fun cd. I designed this in craftartist and then I decoupaged the owl and the holly leaves.

Julie Hickey's - Craftwork Cards - Workshop

Back in either September or October I did a workshop up in Crawley with Julie Hickey from Craftwork Cards. It was a full day workshop and we made several projects from their new ranges. 

I enjoyed all the projects that we did apart from one with a fairy door and I have to say that unfortunately that ended up in the bin!!

Here are the pictures of the projects.

What have I been up to?

Ok so not been very good with the blogging the last part of the year but have to say that I have not been here very often - lucky me. Over the next few days I will be scheduling posts of crafty items that I have been making at workshops and for Christmas pressies. 

For this post I would like to share with you a card I made for my nephew and niece for their anniversary. The image is from Hunkydory's Little Book. just matted a layered using kraft card. The greeting is from Lily of the Valley.
