Blogmas Day 22

Hi there everyone,

A very warm welcome to my blog and to Blogmas Day 22!

I have a quick and easy project for you this evening… I needed to make a gift wallet, now normally I would make these from scratch, but with time ticking on and a million and one things still needing done I opted for the quickie option and it is a good one to keep under your hat.

I used a Papermania Geometric Gift Wallet and added some chipboard elements to make it more christmassy

m-gift-wallet

supplies list :-

  • Papermania Geometric Gift Wallets
  • Scrapiniec Chipboard Snowflakes
  • Letter M Chipboard Alpha
  • Imagination Crafts Starlights Pain in White Gold
  • Glue

This is the reverse side of it… I do have a blog post and a you tube video on how to make these envelopes from scratch if you are interested in making some for yourself

m-gift-wallet1

I love how it turned out and i even stuck some of the unused snowflake arms that I chopped off the top right snowflake into the letter M to give it a bit of dimension

As always thank you so much for popping round and I will see you for Day 23 tomorrow

Blogmas Day 17

Hi everyone and welcome to Blogmas day 17…

Apologies in advance for the late posting today, It was my work’s Christmas party last night and I am loaded with a stinking cold,no hangover tho πŸ˜‰

Today, I hauled myself up to my shed to get cracking with making my Christmas Cards for family, friends, neighbours and work colleagues ..

merry-christmas-a

I based it on a design I have already made but turned it into a 6×6 card, there is nothing better than recieving a good quality handmade card

So the card base measures 6″ x 6″ and the white inner layer is 4″ x 4″ then the dark grey layer is 3 7/8″ x 3 7/8″ and the patterned paper is 3 3/4″ x 3 3/4″

merry-christmas-b

I have a ton of stuff still to do and I am hoping to get it all done tomorrow, because I have not started my Christmas shopping yet and time is ticking on πŸ˜€

See you tomorrow!

Winter Reindeer Coat of Arms

Hi Everyone…

Welcome to Blogmas Day 16

Today’s project is a Winter Reindeer Coat of Arms made from a reindeer head I bought in stampers grove and the plaque is cut from a cat food box πŸ™‚

reindeer-of-arms-1

The reindeer looked like this before I started

reindeer

I took out some mod podge matte and some Papermania decopatch papers

paper-mache-paper

I painted the whole thing with white gesso as a base coat so that the papers would pop when they were glued once they covered the entire reindeer head.

reindeer-of-arms-2

The base of the head was covered in clear glitter, and I stuck some glittery snowballs on the sides pf the plaque, it was finished off with a wooden snowflake dipped in versamark ink and a coat of white encrusted embossing powder applied and when melted I sprinkled some iridescent glitter over top to make it sparkle..

and finally the reindeer was centred and stuck down onto the plaque and it’s done.

As always, thank you for popping round and I will see you all tomorrow for day 17!
