The girls in 2015!

Thursday, December 31, 2015

Last year I did a collage of the girls for 2014 and posted it on social media but this year I thought I would post it on my blog as well.

It's been a busy year but looking forward to what 2016 brings.

Happy new year!

Christmas Cards 2015.

Thursday, December 24, 2015

I got a bit stuck with the inspiration for this year Christmas cards until I came across an idea of a card in a box. These cards are designed to be flat enough to fit in an envelope but when opened they stand as a box. 

I made these cards with different embellishments from Hobbycraft and used some Christmas patterned paper on the sides. I added some embellishments to the sides of one of the boxes but felt the others looked better plain. 

On the back I added a plain white piece of card so that I could write a message to the recipient. 

I didn't make very many of these cards and decided to make some standard Christmas cards as well. 

For the second set of Christmas cards, I used some wooden Christmas embellishments that I found in Homesense.

Some of these embellishments were quite large and worked well on their own on the front of the cards while others were smaller so I added some wooden stars and a button to fill the space.

I layered up some white card and some Christmas patterned paper for the background of the card and added a red stitched rounded rectangle on top for the embellishments to go on.

The sentiment is from Clearly Besotted Most Wonderful stamp set and is stamped on a white stitched rectangle. I really love the red against the kraft patterned paper.

I really enjoyed making the Christmas cards this year and as I did it like a little assembly line, with making one part of  all the cards at a time, it was quite quick to complete. 

Hope you have a lovely Christmas and I will see you soon.

Organising kids craft supplies

I'm so excited to be able to share my featured project I have done with Wayfair

It was a great opportunity to sort out the kids craft supplies and organise them better using different types of storage.

To see the storage ideas I came up with, you can check out the featured post here
