Crafty Creations - Christmas

Well it's getting all Christmassy over at Crafty Creations thanks to this week's hostess Amy!  We are kindly sponsored by Blackleaf Studios who are offering a fab prize to one lucky winner!!

I couldn't resist using this lil Magnolia Edwin for my card though (coloureed with Prisma pencils)....I wonder what's in that parcel he's holding so tightly?!!  This is a sketch from ages ago that i had printed out but didn't get around to using at the time....!  The papers are a mix from MME and The Girls Paperie.

I liked how this one turned out - thanks for visiting and for any comments - it's getting closer!! lol bx

Crafty Creations - Beautiful Insides!

Jaime set the challenge at Crafty Creations this week - Beautiful InsidesPlease pop over and have a look at all the fabulous projects the team created this week!

Instead of a card, I decided to make a "bag in a box" after seeing the fab tutorial by Beate!  I then used one of my nestie labels to create a tab for my bag of yummy Thorntons chocolates to go inside my bag!  I love the pretty papers and colours (more suited for Easter maybe rather than the upcoming Christmas celebrations!! lol)

The bag-in-a-box was soooo easy to make - I'll be making a few more of these methinks!

We are sponsored by Whiff of Joy this week - and have a beautiful stamp for one lucky (random) winner! bx

Crafty Creations - Buttons

This week at Crafty Creations it's Jenni's first turn as hostess and she has chosen the theme of "Buttons - either real or handmade"!

I opted for a lil change in style this week - and used this fab Magnolia christmas tree as the focal point of my card!  I simply "decorated" it with an itchy titchy star button!!  I also layered a couple of buttons and adhered that to the twine.

The yummy papers are by Memory Box - you will see that I opted for non-traditional christmas colours - my favourite kind!!

So a nice "easy" theme this week - buttons are so versatile I can't wait to see how many ways they are used in your projects this week! Thanks for visiting and for your sweet comments! bx

Crafty Creations - Fables and Fairytales

Deena chose a "novel" theme for us all this week "Fables and Fairytales"!  We are sponsored by  Meljen's Designs and were given some cute images to work with....I loved this lil character and chose him!

Although, I must admit, this theme had me stumped!  First I thought i could try and make a castle for him...but he's a dwarf so the castle thing wouldn't work....then I thought I could make him a lil cottage....but I made the haunted house last then i thought I'd have him out searching in the forrest for Snow White (obviously that's why he is unhappy....)  so I made this 3D card!!

I thought these Basic Grey papers were perfect for the "forrest" look; the fringes represent the foliage he has to trample through; the scrap of "net" and silver embellishments represent the "things" that dangle in a forrest (i'm not sure what they are exactly but there's always things "danglin'" in the forrest in the movies lol

So that is my lil project for this week - I ended up having a right laugh at my efforts, but that's part of the fun!! Please pop across to Crafty Creations and see the fab projects my teamies and our guests created and details on our fab prize!! bx
