Little Tilda Angel Tag

What a day. Rain and dull, typical scottish autumn. But great for sitting indoors with your craft stash. Today I have made a little tag using My Mind's Eye christmas papers and a little Tilda angel image which I coloured with pro markers. The ribbon and wooden snowflake are from Hobby Craft. The bling is also My Mind's Eye. The heart back ground I punched out. The pins are from Be Crafty in Elgin. I am entering this little project in these challenges this week.

Little mini book and box

Weather is absolutely horrible today, winds and rain, so what else to do than make a little project. :) Here I have decorated a little box and mini book by 7 Gypsies. I have used yummy Basic Grey christmas papers and distressed all the edges and embellishments with ink and the flowers are punched out with EK Success punches, I scrunched these up to make them look distressed. I used some mini white glass beads for the centre of the flowers and attached them with some aqua glitter glue. The bling is from Poundland. The ribbons are from Bee Crafty in Elgin. The red letters and "family tradition"sentiment are stickers from Bo Bunny. Made some paper beads for the front of the mini book and attached them to some craft wire. For the house at the back of the book I used a template from a Polka Doodles christmas magazine pack. The snowy roof I drew and coloured with pro markers and used a little bit of forest green ink to make it match. Also punched out a little circle with cuttle bug die cut and embossed it with a little snow scene and inked that up. The pins I also purchased in Bee Crafty. Had lots of fun making this and I just couldn't wait till christmas to give this to my future in laws so I did it today. And they liked it, which is the important bit. So very pleased. Thank you for looking. Have a good week.

Make a wish.

Afternoon. Having a lovely sunday, roast is on and have been out for a walk. Managed to make a card using my new Bo Bunny papers (yum, yum) which my lovely friend Tracy gave me for my birthday. Thank you, Tracy!!! (and they now come in 6 inch pads!!!) I used loads of stick on jewels that I purchased from Bee Crafty in Elgin. The little bunting sentiment is from Making Memories. I used a Squiggle Stamp image, she is called Fairy Wish, you can find her here. She is so cute, I just had to use her and she was a dream to colour in. I use my cuttle bug machine and scalloped circle Spellbinders to cut out the image and the background.
