Advent house

I recently won a competition on Facebook to win an advent house (yes you do win on Facebook sometimes).  I used the DSP all is calm to decorate it and the festive flurry stamps and dies to cut them out.  It's a pity they've been discontinued as they are such a lovely set. 
This  is the house that I decorated, didn't finish it time to use for advent this year, but next year I expect I will put some goodies in each of the drawers.

Love the silver glimmer paper too.

Craft workshop

Spent a lovely day making christmas!  We made cards, advent boxes, gift boxes and decorated bags.  The ladies that attended really enjoyed themselves and went away with lots of cards ready for Christmas.

Set up and the stamps to play with

Joanne decided she would make her own designs.

I think they missed the bin a bit!
The advent boxes
The cards I designed for the day
And gift bag

If you want to have fun like this too, contact me and we can arrange a workshop either at your home or in my studio

Craft fayre

This was my stall at the craft fayre, bit of a quiet morning but good experience anyway.

Getting ready for craft fayre

Sorry haven't been blogging lately, been so busy creating goodies for a craft fayre next week.   Have also been away for a few days to Stampin Up convention in Brussels. 

Here are a few of my recent makes.

These will all be for sale at the craft fayre, and any left over will be available direct from me or at the stables in Brightwell barns.

Made a few of these, going to do some desktop ones too.

The calender just needs adding.

Christmas gift boxes

Made these from something similar I saw on Pinterest.

New recent makes

Love my swallowtail butterfly stamp and made these frames.

I think the green is my favourite.

Advent boxes

Made these for filling with goodies, will take a Ferrror Rocher easily or three tea lights.  Made using new  Stampin up box board.

Birthday celebration

Made a lovely card for my sisters birthday last week.  Found one similar on Pinterest which I "borrowed "!

And made a small gift box too which holds three tea lights.

Baby frames, hanging wall plaques and recent card makes

I've been busy creating and not blogging, so I thought I had better put up a few of my latest creations.

Really pleased with the way these have turned out.  The frames can be personalised with names too.

I'm now starting to make some Christmas cards so will be showing them off soon.

These are a few of my cards made recently too:

The technique used to make these backgrounds was fun and very messy.

The background on these two above were all handstamped.

These have handstamped backgrounds too.

I'll show some more of my creations later.

Been busy making handbags this weekend ready for my craft shelf I'm renting in Brightwell barns.  You will have to go and take a look they do lovely breakfasts from 7:30 in the morning and afternoon tea.

Just love these bags, the ribbon ones are just so strong too!
