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

Birthday Card & Wallet

Hello again, hope you are all well. Today I decided I was making A card with a wallet to put it in.  I found the Inspiration from a magazine of mine which was Die Cutting Essentials Issue 32, It 
was designed by a lady who works with Hunkydory.  I was undecided whether to make a Christmas version but I decided I was going to leave Christmas projects for a few more weeks.  Although  my children would disagree.  I will leave a link below of my process video over on my You Tube channel and I will also leave the measurements below too.
FOR THE CARD
Card Base cut at 7.5 x 4" 

FOR THE WALLET
Card measuring 8 1/4 x 10 1/2"
score along the longest side at  3 1/2 and 8"

Index Card- 5 - Keep Moving Forward

Hi everyone hope you are all well.  I decided to do another Index card today.  I wanted to do an Autumn themed one.  I used my Distress Oxide inks for my background and I then used a leaf stamp and used gold embossing powder on the leaves to add more interest to my Index card.  I love the Autumn season  I have a process video on my You Tube channel. I will leave a link below if you have the time to take a look.

I chose the large gold Butterfly to stick on to my shaker window, as you can see, I think it embellishes my card nicely. If you would like to watch my process video of me making this card I will leave a link below for you to use to watch it. I would love it if you would subscribe to my You Tube channel and follow me on my blog.
