CHRISTMAS ANGEL TREE DECORATION USING BOOK FOLDING

Hello everyone I decided to do something a bit different today, I made these little Christmas Angels using book folding.  It is a very easy technique to do and I think the end result looks really lovely. If you have a spare 10 minutes please would you visit my You Tube channel and watch my process video.  I will leave the link below.

CHRISTMAS CARD MAKING 2018- CARD No 1- LET IT SNOW

Good afternoon everyone hope you are well. My mission for this year is to try to get organised for Christmas, I decided this morning that I was going to start my Christmas cards.  I made this card using a lovely free gift that was with Simply cards and Papercraft Issue 189.  I went with a nice easy card today which involved a little bit of matting and layering and using the Snowflake die.  I heat embossed a sentiment using Cosmic Shimmer True White embossing powder and I embellished the card using some Blue enamel gems. If you have a spare 10 minutes I would love you to take a look at my process video.  I will leave a link below.

Christmas Tree Sparkle

I kept on looking in my tin of Silver sparkly beads that I had collected and decided I would like to use them to make a Christmas project for a challenge I was taking part in on You Tube.  I was inspired for this project from watching numerous You Tube videos.  I started by cutting a piece of cardboard to size and covering it using White Gesso, I did several coats making sure none of the cardboard was visible.  I covered two sides of the cardboard with White lace, I then covered all four sides with Hessian and lace. I roughly sketched the outline of a Christmas Tree and then filled it using all my beads of different shapes and sizes.  I embellished with Silver snowflakes and White bows.  I finished by using some Silver ribbon at the top of the plaque so that it could be hung.

Hi everyone hope you are all well and enjoying your weekend. I am enjoying some crafty time today as the children are off on half term next week.  I have some Christmas crafting planned for me and the children which I know they will love doing. I made this quick card today and love the Autumn colours I used.  I have no idea why I chose to use a sunflower It just grabbed my eye when I was looking through my stash.  Watch my process video if you have a spare 10 minutes, I would be really grateful.  I will leave a link below.https://youtu.be/i0EWHVwTR9o
