Hello! With Halloween over and Christmas under two months away I thought it was about time to start sharing my Christmas creations and before I can do that I need to show you some of my new Christmas supplies. 

I've been busy getting festive recently and here are some of the goodies I've been using. A bunch of these things were sent to me by The Works and then I added to my stash with some bits I'd seen in the shop and really wanted. There's a good range of products in The Works at the moment so without further ado I'll talk you through what I got.

  • 5"x7" Scalloped Cards and Envelopes x 2
  • 6"x6" Paper pack
  • 4 Metal Charms
  • Paper Blossoms
  • Paper Lace Doilies
  • Sequins (I have an excellent idea to turn these into some Christmas shakers!)

These products are from the North Pole Collection by Dovecraft:
  • 6"x6" Paper Pack
  • Ribbons

These products are from The Night Before Christmas Collection:
  • 8"x8" Glitter Decoupage

Clearly Besotted | Feeling Fruity

Hello! Today I wanted to share a bundle of cards I made using the Feeling Fruity stamp set by Clearly Besotted. This is such an adorable set, could those mice be any cuter? I've set myself a challenge to use my currently unused stamp sets. I bought them because I loved them so they deserve to get some use. Here is what I came up with. 

To make these cards I stamps each of the mice onto some white cardstock using Memento Tuxedo Black ink and coloured in with Spectrum Noir Markers. I don't have the matching dies so simply cut them out using scissors. 

Each mouse was added onto a tag die cut with some foam tape and then a coordinating bow from my stash was added onto the hole. 

I also delved into my 6x6 paper pad stash and pulled out some of my fruity papers that I wouldnt be able to use elsewhere and also colours that corresponded to the colours of the fruits. I die cut a square panel using Lawn Fawn's Stitched Square dies and adhered to a blank card base with foam tape. 

I stamped each sentiment onto a strip die cut and adhered to the tag before adhering the tag to the card. 

I really like how these cards turned out, so cute and fun!

Thanks for stopping by and I hope to see you again soon!

Clearly Besotted | Hooray

Hello there! Today I wanted to share a quick celebration card that I made recently. 

To make this I cut a panel of blue cardstock using the Lawn Fawn Large Stitched Rectangles and then used the Clearly Besotted Hooray Shaker Shapes. I bumped this panel up using some funky foam and attached to a panel of patterned paper. 

I stamped the sentiment 'Time to Celebrate' from the Many Mini Messages stamp set by Clearly Besotted in blue ink onto a sentiment strip also by Clearly Besotted and bevelled using double foam pads in the middle and single foam pads on the edges. 

I finished this card off by going over the Hooray with glossy accents.

I hope you enjoyed this card & thanks for stopping by!

Craftwork Cards | Man Made Collection

Today I want to share a huge collection of cards that I made recently using my Man Made collection by Craftwork Cards. I really enjoyed using this kit and found it really easy to use and each card came together quite quickly. To create a more masculine card I stuck to circle and star shapes over hearts and flowers. 

I would love to hear what you think about these cards, if you have any comments, please leave them below. But for now I will leave you to enjoy the photos!

Thanks for stopping by,

Simon Says Stamp | You're a Winner

Hello, today I'm sharing a card I made using the Simon Says Stamp All Boy Stamp Set. I'd recently bought a lot of the Lawn Fawn Dye Inks and wanted a project where I could test them out (so you can see my stamping isn't as perfect as it could be).

I stamped and coloured the game controller image twice and when dry I added glossy accents to the buttons to make them appear more real. I then took a selection of my inks and stamped the greeting in Deep Sea and the word Hey! lots of times using the colours Sunflower, Freshly Cut Grass, Mermaid & Deep Sea. 

Hope you like it!
Hayley :)
