Christmas banner

A little Christmas make from me today that was a nightmare to photo lol
I have made a Christmas banner using a new Whimsy stamp set and matching die

*NEW Nesting Christmas Lights Dies - Click Image to Close

*NEW Spell it Out Christmas Lights - Click Image to Close

I have stamped and embossed the letters on teal card and then cut them out
I have used the dies to cut the silver card out and used acetate and foam pads to out them together
I have then added beadazzles to make them into shaker lights.

I have used silver cord to hand them on and ribbon in between
You should have seen me in the garden trying to get photos,I am pretty sure my neighbour thinks I am mad.
Bye for now

Woodware love the hat and Rudolph and friends

Hello,just a quick post today because I have been on holiday and not crafting much
I have made these two simple Christmas cards for Sir Stampalot
with two new stamps from Woodware that I thought were so cute
The snowman is called 'Love the hat' and can be found HERE
and the one below is called Rudolph and friends and can be found HERE

Both are coloured with copics and I have used glossy accents although this doesn't show too well in picture
I did enjoy colouring these but my kids did not because I kept singing Christmas songs

Graphic 45 mini album made using envelope board

Something a little different for me today
I like making mini book and made this one using graphic 45 papers

I have used a 8x8 pad called 'Couture collection'

Each pocket is made using the envelope board by WRM keepers

All of the images are from the pad and I have only used lace and a few dies for extra details

There is lots of pockets in this mini book and it was fun to make

Sometimes it is nice to have a change from cards and I find making mini books very relaxing

Hope I did not bore you with too many pictures but it is not a easy project to photograph
