Winter Wonderland Lantern

Hi guys, It's freezing here this morning, I'm just back from taking Tegan to school so I'm defrosting!!! lol,😄
I think I told you I recently got my latest Crafteezee collection In The Forest Winter Wonderland kit, so many gorgeous fabulous products again in the collection,  so using some of them I have made this Lantern,
I used a template off my Cameo Silhouette to make the lantern base then decorated the top and base with some of the Studio Light Forest papers from the kit, and some vellum from my stash,
 with some  Sissix die cut trees to the sides on top of the vellum, On the base I added a Magnolia Doo Hickey lovely fence die, onto which I added some script stamping from a Stempelglede stamp,then on the the front section one of the cinnamon sticks, a shabby sprig and a flower, from the kit,
This Tilda is one of my all time favorites and she is coloured with my distress re-inkers, then fussy cut out, adhered only to the base so the main part of the Lantern can be removed,
 On the top I added a snowflake trim die, leaf dies,and yet more goodies from the Crafteeze collection, another shabby sprig, a larch cone, some more of the flowers, and used a little of the ribbon which was tied around the collection as a handle,
The sides are decorated similar using some beaded stamens from my stash,
On the top edges of the main part I added the fabulous Enamel dots which again were in the kit,
Seeing as it's a Lantern I added a battery tea light so it lights up when it gets dark,
This is one of the side views,

A girly Christmas Stocking tag

Hi guys, you may have seen the other day I popped on my blog a couple of Christmas stocking gift tags which were for the men in my life, yep totally unfoofy, so here is the girls version, lol
I used the same template, machine sewn together like the others then I have layered up this one using the fabulous Studio Light papers I bought from Tracy at Noor Design UK,
The large star was on one of the papers so I fussy cut this out and layered it over the top of the one of the borders which was at the bottom of the paper,
I also added some bark stars and Scrapiniec Holly leaves from the Yuletide collection,
I then handmade a Poinsettia flower using some of the fabulous Foamiran I bought again from Tracy, the stamens were in my stash,
I used some of the papers again for the cuff of the stocking, then used this gorgeous crystal effect snowflake which was part of the Yuletide kit, which i slightly layered over the gorgeous
 pleated ruffle trim I then finished it off with a pearl trim from Tracy's shop and some bronze coloured bells,
This is the inside, I love the owls!!
The latest collection is on backorder now I think, or you can pre-order the next one from here,

It's that time of year

Hi guy's, well Christmas is well and truly on it's way, this year my son and Son-in-law want the cash lol, so I have made a couple of Christmas gift stockings,
now as you know men don't really do overly faffy so i have decorated them to hopefully be in keeping with a mans gift stocking

This one is finished off with some of the adorable snowflake buttons from Tracy at Noor Design UK and were part of the Yuletide collection I had ordered,the  bells and twine were part of my stash,

Both have been made using a template off my Silhouette Cameo, I made them using some of fantastic Maja Design papers, borders and images,
I then finished this one  off with a gorgeous Reindeer charm from the Yuletide kit I bought from Tracy at Noor design UK as well as the cute little bells which I tied around the Deers antlers which were also part of the kit,
The fabulous Scrapiniec chipboard sentiment was from Monika's shop Love to craft and create, Monika has lots of other gorgeous chipboards and products over there too,
the other bells and twine were again from my stash,

As you can see they are machine stitched together so they will open up for some money without it falling out, lol
I have also made one for a female, a lot more embellished and pretty but that's for another day, lol
Happy Crafting!!

I decided to do my first lollipop creation ever, with a celebration theme using some of the products from the Art Deco collection from Tracy at Noor Design UK,
I used some of the papers, for the background circles, layering them up with a doily from my stash,
I used some of the fabulous feathers from the kit and a die cut leaf available at Noor Design UK too,

I used a mask die cut I have as the main feature using one of the papers to bring in the gold and black colours, I made a couple of paper flowers with some bits left over of another of the papers. then a Dutch Doobadoo paper art leaf which I've had forever, lol
I finished off the front with a clock hand from my stash and a gorgeous bling mask which again came in a Crafteezee collection too,
I then used one of the straws from the Art deco kit and a black gem on the black ribbon which Tracy had used  around the parcel,
Just goes to show that the Art Deco collection can be used for other than Art Deco too,

Violin with foamiran flowers

Hi guys, I just got some of the fabulous foamiran from Noor Design UK to make my first foamiran flowers with and gosh I love it, I had this daft urge to also make a violin, don't ask me why!!! so I got a image of the internet and after tracing round the image and cutting it out I then decided to make it into a 3D Violin,
I used a Die cut from Tracy at Noor design UK too use as the string holder, this was an oval shape so I cut it down and used two of the ends sticking them together to make it stronger,
Excuse the tired strings, I hadn't any stronger twine and this just bended and kinked, and wouldn't stay were it was supposed to, so hopefully it looks like it a well loved musical instrument, lol
I used the gorgeous papers by Maja Design from the Vintage Romance collection, I also used some  gorgeous lace from my stash,
I  played about with bits of paper, then hand cut all the other bits needed for the strings,
I made the flowers with the white foamiran, from Tracy at Noor design UK, cut them out with  some flower die cuts then coloured and shaped them, the stamens I had in my stash too,
I wanted some small leaves so I cut some free hand ( a great way to use up bits left over too) and scored them in the middle with a pricking  tool after I had coloured them,
Another view of the flowers,
I will certainly be wanting more of this foamiran as I love using it, if you have any questions, feel free to ask,
I then finished off my Violin with some pearls from my stash,
Happy Crafting!!

My first Tussie Mussie

As you know I have bought a few of the Crafteezze collections so today I'm showing another creation I made with the Art Deco Collection, 
I've made my first Tussie Mussie, using some of the kit and a few items from my stash too,
I found this gorgeous vintage photo in my stash, not sure where I got it from to be honest but just had to use it on here, I added one of the gorgeous corners from the kit on the top of the photo after I had distressed the edges a little,
Me and vintage EEEKKKK!!!  but It's growing on me, lol

Behind the photo I used a die cut snowflake from Tracy's Noor Design Uk  online shop, adding one of the clear gems in the middle, at the other side of this I added a couple of the leaf die cuts, to keep in with the colour scheme,
Below the photo Is the black and gold lace which I first wrapped around the Tussie Mussie then below that added a lattice border die, I added the black metal frame from the kit, adding a bird I made out of air dry clay and a mold from my stash,
The gorgeous feather in white this time again was part of the Art Deco kit, the pearl embellishment was in my stash,
Here you can better see the lace and the paper, 
Behind the feather on the other side I used one of the foiled sentiments from the kit along with a pen nib which isn't showing up here doh!!,
The top edge of the Tussie Mussie has another Lattice die cut border die attached and I added a pearl string over/on the top of the Tussie Mussie which I bought from Tracy's shop too,
If you squint you can just make out the pen nib just above the organza flower which again was in my stash, I then added a couple of more die cut leaves again keeping to the same colour ways, under the flower I used a star charm then on the very bottom of the Tussie Mussie one of the Tassels this time in black to hang down again part of the kit, to finish it off,
For the inside top, I lined it with some tissue paper then added some moss, tiny flower and another leaf die, from my stash, I then finished it off with two of the straws, a metal leaf in bronze colour and one of the large Prima black flowers which were all part of the kit, The ribbon holding it up was what Tracy had used to tie the package and it was perfect to use for this too,
So there you have my first Tussie Mussie, with a little vintage and a little Art deco, but I honestly can say I loved making this and will be doing some more,

Christmas stockings

I'm back today with my DT post for
I've made a couple of Christmas stockings,
The first is a slightly vintage style,
I used some of the beautiful 46mm white Guipure lace on the top and some of the gold coloured sequins,

I used a template off my Cameo machine just making it larger, then I used one of the papers from the North Pole paper collection, for the base, The vintage style image is from the North Pole paper collection, I distressed the edges a little,
I built up layers with some of the fabulous Scrapiniec mesh background and some of the Christmas tree ribbon, I also used a  Wycinanka chipboard - Winter is coming garland - 01 which I have cut down,
I got this gorgeous Craft Passion - Holly with fruits die in my DT package the other day and it went fab with the image too, these dies cut beautifully first time, I slightly rounded the fruits/berries die cuts with my ball tool to give a little 3D effect,
I then used the same die behind a poinsettia die I have, this I cut out, layered it up then added a gold coloured sequin for the middle, I also used some of the decorative twig in red and some red Pomegrante apples too,
My second stocking is more shabby chic in style,
I used the same template, but don't they look so different? the papers used on this one are from the North Pole paper collection, I used some of the gorgeous shabby ruffle trim in white on the top this time, a silver coloured sequin and then some 25mm Guipure lace in white underneath,
Further down the stocking I also used some cotton lace,
I coloured this magnolia image with my distress re-inkers to match in with the colours adding a little purple too, I then used some purple Pomegrante Apples to bring the colour in too,
Behind my poinsettia I've used the same holly die cut from Craft passion and a Scrapiniec holly leaf which came as part of the  Big Holly Wreath chipboard by Scrapiniec, I also used a white Pomegrante apple this time as the center,
Close up of image and the gorgeous chipboard Poinsettia by Scrapiniec which I have covered with glamour dust and glitters like mad in real life,
So there you have two stockings, made similar but which look so different,
See you soon,
Happy Crafting!!
