A Merry Christmas To You

Hello Crafters,

I have been playing with the new Pion Design collection of "Let's Be Jolly" papers today and love how this has turned out.  I chose the dog image to take centre stage, sooo cute.

I added a Scrapiniec Chipboard Big Wreath Frame which comes which some smaller holly leaves.  I added some snow tex here and there.  This is due back into stock this week :)

I cut the shabby white cinnamon stick in half and decorated with 15mm open roses, frosted pomegranate in green and some matt clusters in Wine, all dusted with Snow tex and finished with a Fantasty pine branch die cut. 

I cut a strip from the borders sheet and added to the bottom following with a row of dew drop pearl string.

I added a little bling with the rhinestone wave trim at the top,  just edging the pine border cut from the border sheet.

I added a bronze bow at the top and guess what... yep a dashing of snow tex :)

 I added two bronze pine cone charms to the tag along with a button Alexis in white finished with a wax bow.

Hope you like it.

Exploding Box

Hello everyone,

I have an exploding box for you today but boy are they hard to photograph and do justice, so I apologise for the pictures :)

I have used Pion Design's latest collection "Let's Be Jolly" paper collection.  This is the box assembled.

And..... here it is open.  All the images as well as text are from the same collection of papers.

I added a Wycinanka 3D Christmas Tree, just perfect for these boxes.  It looks a little drunk but the glue hasn't dried yet and I have been moving it this way and that trying to get that photograph, lol.

So I photographed each panel for you.  

Hope you like it.

Let's Be Jolly

Hello Everyone,

Hope you are all having a good weekend and an extended one if you are in the UK.  Before I get onto my post, just in case you missed the newsletter or facebook announcement, we currently have many stamps at 50% off for this weekend, ending tonight so if you are interested head over here for all the details.  Oh, wait, check out my post first, lol.

So today I decided to make a christmas card using Pion Design's new collection "Let's Be Jolly".  Links as always at the bottom of the post.

I layered the papers onto two sheets of Pion Design Palette in Red and Pion White.

I added Scrapiniec Misletoe Big Decors and added shabby white rusty bells and a wax cord bow.

The image is from the same collection, Images from the Past.  I added a little shabby white frantage for the snow effect on the image.

The poinsettia was made using Silk Suite White Foam and glistening berries and frosted pomegranates for the centres. I added fir branches using the Fantasy Die Set.  I cut these from the Pion Design Palette Green and added gesso to give a frosty look.

Hope you like it.

Mintay Marina

Hello Crafters,

I'm sharing a card today made using Mintay Marina papers.  The image is also from the set.

I used The Scrap Man Dies for the doily (top left) and the frame that the image is layered onto.

I added a pearl encrusted starfish in the small floral display (top right)

On the large floral display I used the new Foam Clusters, they reminded me of coral from the sea.  I added a few flowers, seashells and a vintage anchor charm.

I also added some Fisherman's Netting to help set the scene.

Hope you like it :)

Life is NOT Peachy

Hi Everyone,

I rustled up another quick card for me yesterday, boy it's like a sauna in my craft room, so I need to be quick before I melt, lol.

So today's card was made using the Pion Design paper collection Life is Peachy but as you will see there are a varierty of colours that you can mix/match or remain monochromatic.

The image is also from Pion Design Grandma's Attic Tinted called Bouquet.

The chipboard stave with birds on is by Wycinanka and as always links can be found at the bottom.

I added a lace butterfly and removed the single pearl and replaced with a button Alexis.  I also used the leaf pearl trim.

I added a little frantage in shabby white here and there.

The floral bouquet is made up of roses, berries and pomegranates with a flower rhinestone button in the centre.

I cut some leaves using a scrap man leaves die set and Pion Design White I cardstock and used a Gallery Turquoise pastel to colour them.

Hope you like it.
