More Snow forecast!

More snowflakes for you today whilst again the sun is shining in Scotland.
That's three days on the trot...summer is finally here and I'm inside Christmas crafting!
That has got to be so wrong.
On the upside I am loving playing with all the new Spellbinders....oh my...they're lush and great fun.
Still got a couple more cards from my Hobby Craft demo then we will move on to the Papeterie demo.

I have used:
White AC card stock and Winter Wonderland by K & Company.
Spellbinder die Labels 14 (one of my favourite) just embossed only.
Tim Holtz Idea-ology Fragments.
Stamps Christmas punch set by Kirsty Wiseman PI with black StazOn ink.
Bling by Zva Create and seam binding from stash.

I love playing with these fragments as they're so quick and easy to use, you can ink them (sample coming), you can stamp on them, add paper backgrounds....the list goes on.
So much fun to play with. 
What do you do with yours?
To add paper to the background simply add plenty of glossy accents to one side of your chosen fragmnet then pop down onto paper.
Move around in small circles to create even distribution of glossy accents and no bubbles then cut out when dry. 
I also like to sand around the edge to create a smooth finish.
Could it be easier?
That's all for another day here, have a great day whatever you are up to.
Catch you tomorrow.

Let it snow!

Preferably after we've had the "summer" which is here just now.
Today I have the new Spellbinder Snowflake.

I have used:
Spellbinder Grand Nestabilities Scalloped circles plus the NEW 2011 Snowflake pendant
but rather than using the snowflake I have used the negative...just to be different.
The white card stock is as usual from American craft and the paper from K & Company Winter Wonderland.
The bling is from Zva Create and ribbon from my stash.
Another quick, simple and effective card to make.

Today I shall be mostly getting ready for my up and coming demo at
Papercrafts Boutique in Elgin this Saturday 10 till 4.
Can't wait!
Oh you should see what I've been playing with this week!
Karen will have some great deals available on the day.
Oh my!
Plus I am not the only demonstrator on the day!
It is going to be a fun packed crafting day.

Traditionally "less is more!"

So today I have a simple card for you just using stamping by layering different colours on top of each other.

I have used:
Paper from Winter Wonderland by K & Company and plain card stock from American craft.
Spellbinder Nestabilities Small and large deckled rectangles together to create a frame.
Stamps: Funstamps "Three wise men" and Inca "Merry Christmas background."
Ink; Black stazOn and Broken China distress ink.
Diamond stickles to finish.

I have created a soft background using the broken china, then stamped twice on top,
once with the background and broken china then with the image and black.
I love silhouette style stamps as it can mean the world is your oyster when it comes to creating a back drop. 
I know there are some great bold crafters out in blog land
in particular the other ladies doing the 365 day calender with me.
I just seem to prefer simple coordinating shades personally.
Maybe one of these days I will be bold and just go for it!  :)

Baubles are us!

The next card is one of my favourites from the Hobby Craft demo....
maybe because it's my colours or the simplicity of it, I don't know.
It just is!
I don't normally do baubles for Christmas but I am so loving this new Spellbinder die,
it also works very well 3d like the tree from yesterdays post....
which will be coming in a later post.
Will you spot it?
I have used:
Spellbinder Nestabilities Heirloom Ornaments and Shapeabilities Holiday tags.
Plain paper from American Craft and patterned by K & Company Winter Wonderland.
Stamp by PI Grrreat Christmas worlds.
Bling from Zva Create.
I have also stitched with my sewing machine and ribbon from my stash.
Simple yet effective!

Have a great Tuesday, I've got more tomorrow...

Monday, September 26, 2011

Oh Christmas tree.

And there's more.....

For this card I have used:
Spellbinder dies; Shapeabilities Nested Pine trees, Create a flake 3 and Fancy tags.
Grand Nestabilites Grand Ovals, Grand Scalloped ovals and Grand Scalloped squares.
Paper;  AC cream textured card stock and Winter Wonderland by K & Company.
Martha Stewart punch doily lace.
Pearls from Zva Create, Distress ink pad Pine Needles and sentiment stamp PI Grrreat Christmas words.

I wanted to create a 3d Christmas tree using the larger of the nested pine trees,
so for this card I have 6 attached together.
They fold back when posting too
mind you it would already be a large letter depth or even a small box.
(For special people only!! LOL)
The square scalloped grand die has also been folded in half to create a rectangle rather than sticking with the square shape of the die. 

I'm away to have a wee tidy of my craft room before starting to get ready for
this Saturday up coming demo in Elgin at Papercrafts Boutique.
Have a great Monday whatever you are up to.

Bags and tags!

Firstly I want to say a big THANK YOU to all the lovely ladies who took the time to visit my demo at the Papeterie at Aberdeen.
It was lovely to see Lorraine and Kirsti amongst others and catch up with Charlotte and the girls.
Thanks for a fab day, I had a great time and I hope you did too.
Now to some more samples from the earlier demo at Hobby Craft.
Today I have "bags and tags" for you
always a good item for the run up to Christmas and great fun to make.

To make this bag I have used:
Red card stock.
Spellbinders Nestabilities classic circle, Grand Scalloped circles and Shapeabilities Holiday cheer.
I have embossed then stencilled with white acrylic paint the stocking and candy cane then added Stickles Diamond.
The handle was created by only putting the very top of the card through the Calibur therefore only cutting half the circle which was scored, folded back and glued.
The inside card can be any depth you wish.  
I cut a rectangle that will go along the base then up the sides allowing a 1cm edge each side to attach to the grand scalloped circles with red tape. 
Finally finishing with a bow of red gingham and a candy cane tag.

And the tag:
I have used:
Red and cream card stock.
Spellbinder Nestabilities Eyelet circles and Labels One
then Shapeabilities Parisian Accents and Fanciful holidays.
The stamp is Merry Christmas background by Inca stamp inked with Fired brick Distress ink.
Finally finished with pearls from Zva create, Glossy Accents and fibres from my stash.
With this I wanted to show that you can mix different Spellbinder dies together
just have a play with them,
I prefer to stick to a simple colour palette whilst doing this as I personally feel too much variety can make it feel too busy. 
But that's just my opinion.
It's all about having fun with the dies and not necessarily putting like with like.
All the fun of the fair!!

Anyway I am away to catch up on some Sugar bowl work
and then my boys have requested a
BAKING session this afternoon,
nomm, nomm....
only if I can be chief tester!

The New Spellbinder dies....

....are lush!
Aren't they?!
Well, I think they are.
My crafty friends who know me know I like
Gingham, anything Halloween craft and finally Poinsettias.
This dies falls into one of those categories!

I have used:
Winter Wonderland papers by K & Company plus white and green textured card by American craft.
Spellbinder dies Grand Nestabilities Labels 11, Poinsettia Shapeabilities, Long classic rectangle and scalloped rectangle nestabilities.
The sentiment stamp is Grrreat Christmas words by Lindsay Mason at PI.
I have used my Vintage photo distress ink to add texture, Stickles red and finally adding some gold small beads from my stash.

Oh you are going to be seeing a lot of this die from me.....did I say how much I loved it?
Anyway today I am demoing at the Papeterie in Aberdeen 10 till 4.
I wonder who I'll see today?
Looking forwards to it.
Whatever you are up to over the weekend have a good one...I shall be enjoying my crafting!

Demo cards

Let's start with my demo from last weekend in Hobby Craft Aberdeen.
It wasn't a demo as I am used to
as there are so many other types of crafters popping in and out of the store,
but it was great to see that all age and range of folk have the crafting bug.
Plus a few of my crafting buddies from Aberdeen popped in to say hi which was great to catch up.

Let's start with this wee chap and a simple card:

My best friend Gill would love this little chap as it is just like her little dog Mac.
Don't you just love his wee tartan jacket?

I have used:
K & Company Winter Wonderland papers together with American craft textured white and black.
Martha Stewart punch Vintage lace.
Spellbinder Nestabilities small and large Deckled Rectangles plus the new Shapeabilities Holiday tags.
The stamp is by Funstamps "Tartan Scottie" coloured with my copic pens and the sentiment from PI Christmas set 2.
I have finally added a wee red seem binding bow and edged with Black soot Distress ink.

The sentiment and papers could easily be changed with this card to do a none Christmassie card but as everything else was for the "season" I kept with the theme.

Sugar Bowl challenge 68

I have got lots of demo cards to share with you all and will hopefully
 get around to post everything soon.

Needless to say it's that time again,
(My favourite time of the fortnight)
I'm sure this is coming around more often...
the last fortnight seems to have flown.
Or is it just me?

Here is my take on the wonderful Kiki's sketch for this challenge:

With the sketch:

And the theme this time is Autumn.

I have used:

Sugar Nellie stamp Titania, isn't she gorgeous?
The papers are from Fancy Pants Beach Bum but I thought they were great Autumnal colours.
I have used flowers from Prima, Vintage Photo distress ink to shade
and Stickles glitter diamond for a bit of bling.
The image is coloured with my copic pens,
leaf punch and the rub on are from my stash
plus stitching done of course on my sewing machine.

I love these new fairy stamps that Sugar Nellie have produced, they're so cute.
This coming from someone who usually doesn't do fairies!!

On to the prize.....
the winner will recieve your choice of 4 SN stamps
if we have under 100 entries
but go over
and that rises to 6 stamps of your choice....
so if you have time why not increase your chances and have more than one go?
Remember you've got to be in it to win it!!
Have fun and happy crafting. x

Candy time!

So this week as I am busying myself getting ready for my next demo I thought I'd share some candy with one of you.
Now it's all sat here ready to go but can I find my camera?
The weekend just gone was spent away with my boys down in Sterling, which was lovely, and of course doing occasional scrapbooking the camera went too.
I didn't come straight home but was lucky enough to be dropped off in Perth for the Craft Trade show.
It was great to put a few more faces to names and have a wander around all the lush new crafting products.
 It was also great to support our local Stamping company Sugar Nellie.

If you are a sugar fan you sure have a treat coming your way next month....
the new stamps are going to be super lush.

Gayle it was especially fabby to catch up with you and have a chat as well as meeting Lorraine and Yvonne, Charlotte and Debbie.

So back to the hubby was left to empty the car upon getting home and can I find my camera?!
The up shot being that I shall have a picture for you to see tomorrow, the
candy is going to be on a Scrapbook theme and shall be.................

"One for the boys!"

You'll have to pop back tomorrow for more.

Friday, September 09, 2011

Last but not least!

The final card is a another version of an easel card that I saw
on TV being used for something entirely different.
I liked the concept so decided to try it with the MME papers.
I think I might be making more of these..

I have used the MME Lost and found Christmas kit, brads and stamps.
I have also used Spellbinder nestabilities Classic round and Classic round scalloped.
The Martha Stewart punch is Dollie lace.
The inks I have used are Distress Vintage photo and StazOn Timber brown.
I have also used a bit of bling and Stickles red glitter.

To make the card I have used a piece of card 29 x 15 cm's
folded and scored at 7 plus 7 1/2 cm's each side. 
This makes the book shape as per the first photo.
The second piece of card is 13 1/2 x 18 1/2 cm's with a fold at 2 1/2 cm's from the top.
This flap is then attached to the top centre inside of the card.
This will appear longer when the book is all shut but it is so the card will stand.
All that is left now is to decorate it as little or as much as you like.

So folks that is what we did at Elgin.
I do hope you enjoyed it.

I'm having this weekend off with my boys.
"And chillaxe!"

Then it starts all again next week in preparation for my demo at
HobbyCraft in Aberdeen
on Saturday 17th of September 10 a.m. till 4 p.m.

Happy crafting.

Sugar Bowl challenge No. 67

That's another fortnight gone....
I'm sure someone is stealing them,
before we know the children will be off for the Tattie holidays.
On to the Sugar Bowl this time and it is my sketch with the theme "use scraps".
This is my take:

And the sketch:

I have used scraps from Kraft card and Oh what fun range by 3 bugs in a rug.
I have also used my vintage photo distress ink,
Spellbinder dies Classic circles and Stars 5
plus Sizzix die Corner flourish.
The Stamp is by Sugar Nellie Mary Hall and is called Little Angel.
All the Mary Hall stamps are on Sale at the moment so why not pick up a cute wee bargain whilst also looking at the new fabby fairy and angel stamps.
You know you want to....LOL.
I have coloured my angel using copic pens, Stickles Star dust and gold gel pen.
Finally I have added a string bow and black pen to highlight.

Up for grabs, prize wise, this time is
4 of your choice Sugar Nellie stamps rising to 6 if we get more than 100 entries.
As I always got to be in it to win it!
Good luck and happy crafting.

Before I leave today I also promised yesterday a bit of a cracker!
So to end with a
 here it is:

And here from a slightly different angle:

The inspiration for this card came from the lovely Kara at an SU event a couple of years ago.
It was a favourite at the demo in Elgin with all the ladies.
I have used MME Lost and found kit and brad plus Martha Stewart punch Traditional Scallop and Spellbinder Nestablities Classic circles.

To create this "cracker" of a card you will need a 12 x 4" strip of card.
You will need to score at 2" and 4" at each end.  (Positioned as you look at it above).
Then you will mark the 6" point at the top and bottom of paper with a pencil.
Now this is where the fun starts.....
Score from the top 6" point to the bottom 2" point on both the left and right of the cracker, then reverse so you take the bottom 6" point to the top 2" point left and right.
This should give you a diamond shape in the middle and the legs should sit either side like a table.
I have then used my MS punch on each end plus added a further 3 x 4" strip of co-ordinating paper to each side to extend the cracker shape.
The centre is decorated with a 2 1/4" square and the my embellishments are added on top.
Simples squeak!
I'd love to hear how you get on with this card.
More again tomorrow......

Wednesday, September 07, 2011

Oh my it's My Mind's Eye!

Aren't these papers lush?
I just love them.
Now I know that at the moment easel cards are all the age so I set to task...
I wanted to make one using my Punch around the Page(PATP) set from Marta Stewart called Cherish.
Now the main question that comes up time and time again with the PATP sets is
once folk get them home they have trouble getting them to work.
As the punches have to work together there are only certain sizes of paper that will work.
When you get your punches there are instructions included
with the sizes of paper that will work and they are:

3.25"/8.25 cm
5"/12.7 cm
6.75"/17.15 cm
8.5"/21.59 cm
10.25 "/ 26.04 cm
12"/30.48 cm

Top tip: When using a PATP I find starting with the corners and work back to the middle of the card
works the best for me plus that way all your centres are the same.

Any combination above should work.
I have used 5" x 6.75" and made three identical pieces.
To fix my easel together I made a small hinge approximately 2" by 1 1/2" and with the fold on the left of the card attached the bottom and middle layers of card together.
I then folded the middle layer on the diagonal and attached the top layer.
I have then decorated the card using elements from the the My Minds Eye (MME) kit together with one of the lost and found brads.
Finally the whole card is brought together with Distress ink Vintage photo
plus I have added a wee bow of red satin ribbon.

For this square card I have again used the Loss and Found Christmas papers.
What I wanted to show is that you can stamp on your patterned papers and not just plain white or cream then colour.
I have also used Spellbinder die labels 14, we have cut, embossed and then stencilled using Distress ink vintage photo. 
The layer behind labels 14 has been cut with the same die but edging around it using a craft knife...this creates a neat smaller boarder. 
Mind your fingers!
The stamp is also by MME Loss and found Christmas and has been inked with StazOn Timber brown.
The strips underneath the label are made using Martha Stewart edge punches Scalloped dots and Cherish.
Finally I have added a cream seem binding ribbon which I've inked with Vintage photo distress pad.

Now on another note I have set a challenge for the Hopeman croppers.
This is the page with thanks to Pagemaps.

With the theme something you did during the summer holidays or something about yourself.

To show willing I have created my own:

With my big adventure from the holidays!
For this layout (LO) I have used:
cream card stock,'s papers "ParisNights",
Sizzix die Sewing room by Tim Holtz,
Martha Stewart edger punches Scalloped dot, Cherish and Traditional scallop,
title by American craft Thickers
and a couple of photo corners and brads from my stash.
This challenge will be open until the 2nd of October when we hold the next crop.
I think this is the quickest LO I have ever done!
I know now why my pals like sketches for scrapbooking.

That's all for me today more MME treats instore tomorrow....
I'll give you a clue....
"It's a cracker!"

Tuesday, September 06, 2011

And more!

Today I have the last of the snowmen for you
as tomorrow we move to papers from My Minds Eye.
The first card is a box card.

I have used the Martha Stewart Winter paper pad (kit),
Spellbinder Nestabilities Labels 14 and 2010 Snowflake pendant. 
I have finished with a bit of bling from Zva create,
some fine ribbon from my stash and
Distress stain Broken china.

The box card is easy to make. 
First cut your paper to A5 landscape and score down the centre as if folding to make a C6 card.
Open the card back up and cut 1 cm from the left hand side. 
Then score 1cm in on the left then again 1 cm to the right of the centre fold already made,
then again 1 cm in from the right hand side of the card.
Once folded this should make the box shape.
Does it make sense?
I have then used my Spellbinder die to make the hole, creating a smaller message with  Paula Pascual Large Christmas sentiment stamps. 
Finally the hanging snowflakes have been made sandwiching ribbon between two identical snowflakes and attaching to the inside of the card.

Top tip:  Do all the decorating before finally gluing the box together as it gets a bit fiddly the other way around.
Also double sided card stock is a must for this project.

Finally again from the Martha Stewart kit....

 Also in the MS kit there was some acetate stickers and bubble stickers and I thought what a great way to decorate glass or even an acetate card. 
I opted for a wee votive adding paper from the above range and a wee bit of gingham ribbon too. 
The tag I made up myself using the bubble stickers also in the kit papers and stickers plus
Martha Stewart edge punch Traditional scallop.
A good project for kids to make for their teachers......
although I've heard it on the grapevine that teachers prefer a bottle of good wine to candles,
I wonder why?!

So that's all for me again today, happy crafting!

Monday, September 05, 2011

And there's more!

The inspirations for this card was from a day out to Aberdeen a few years ago and a class by the lovely Diane
I have adapted the sizes of this card to suit what I wanted to achieve but it is basically a different version of a step card.
I have used papers from Martha Stewart as are the bling, velum snowflakes and snowmen (all from the special offer kit at the weekend).
I have also used stamps by PI Paula Pascual large Christmas, Blue china distress ink, Stickles Star dust and Spellbinder die Classic scalloped circles.
The card measurements I have used are:
1 standard 15 cm square card with side fold plus a strip of card 15 cm's wide by 28 1/2 cm's long (basically the length of A4 card).
The strip is then scored at 2 1/2 cm, 5 cm, 10 cm, 15 cm and 22 cm's then folded and attached front bottom of the square card. 
All that is left to do at this point is to have fun decorating it!
I think these little snowmen are so cute and already just to stick on your card, it couldn't be easier.
Actually it can be easier as this next card is using the new Nitwit Essential die cut collection.

Again the papers and acetate sticker are from the Martha Stewart Blue kit, then I have just created a Christmas scene using the die cuts and 3d foam....
How easy is that?
Just what you need when you have so many Christmas cards to make.

Before I go today I just want to thank all the lovely ladies who made it to the crop yesterday.
I had a lovely time catching up with everyone with a few giggles and songs to add in the mix not to mention plenty of cake and cups of char!
I also managed to complete "September" in my 365 challenge which has been organised by the lovely Kate, see the link below.
Here is my September....and my thinking behind it
"an apple for teacher!"

Now I've just got to remember to complete each day!
I have used stamps from Papertrey ink It's official,
lettering by Scenic route,
SU scalloped punch and
Distress dies; Vintage photo, Fired brick, Brushed corduroy, Tea dye and Crushed olive. 
I have drawn the apple
but the inspiration was taken from a Sizzix die called,
wait for it,
Also here is my August completed...

The details for this one can be found around the same time last month on my blog.
Why not pop over to Kate's blog and see what everyone else has been up to this month you won't believe how different they are.
I also managed a LO too which I will show you later in the week, just got to pop a title on it.

Thanks for visiting my blog and hope you are having a good Monday morning, more from me again tomorrow.
Happy crafting!

What did we get up to?

Firstly I would like to start by saying a big THANK YOU to all the lovely ladies who visited Papercraft's Boutique yesterday. 
I had a lovely busy day chatting with everyone about all things craft.

Now this coming week I want to share with you my demo pieces with details of what I have used and brief details of how to create yourself, should you wish to.

Firstly I would like to start with my banner.

This is made using the "Special offer Martha Stewart kit" in blues.
To create the base I have used Spellbinder Nestabilities Labels 15.
The little snowflakes on the letters come with the kit and are beautifully delicate.
The larger snowflakes are made using Spellbinder Shapeabilities Create a flake 2 and 2010 Snowflake pendant layered together(which I love!).
I have also used white eyelets, ribbon, MS fine glitter and buttons (the buttons are behind the larger of the snowflakes to stop them moving). 
Blue china distress ink has been used to bring the whole banner together with finally the
 lettering cut on my Cricut machine Alphalicious 2 1/2 ". 
If you don't have access to a Cricut machine you could use chipboard or print off the computer.

Next I have created a snowflake card using the negative of the Spellbinder 2010 Snowflake die.

Don't throw away your negative bits!!

For this card I have used Spellbinder Nestabilities Grand Scalloped Squares, layered with silver card stock then the blue snowflakes paper from the Martha Stewart kit. 
To this I have 3d foamed a negative square of white glitter card plus on the inside the smaller snowflake (3d).

Top tip:  Cut out your square of glitter card first and tape die with low tack tape to it, that way you will get it central before putting it through your die cutting machine.

Finally I have added a "bit of bling" and ribbon on top.
A simple but effective card!

More from me tomorrow but I'm now away to unpack and then pack up again for this afternoons crop.
I'm hoping to do September in my 365 day calender which seems to be getting later every month.
I have also set a LO scrapbook page challenge for the other girls so I would love to have a go at that too.
With the added bonus of cake and tea....what more could a girl want!
Have a lovely Sunday. x

Whoop, whoop, it's time for the Sugar Nellie blog

You should have joined me from the lovely Astrid's blog if not click on the Sugar Nellie link above and that will take you to the very beginning.

I love this new range as I am sure you will too.

For my card I have also used papers from My Minds Eye The Merry Days of Christmas, Holly Shimmer and Gingerbread Lane.
The stamp "Merry Christmas" is from Paula Pascual stamps (PI).
Spellbinder Nestabilities classic large rectangles and scalloped rectangles.
Glitter is stickles star dust and Distress stickles Rock candy.
The image is coloured with my copics and Distress ink Stormy sky.
Satin white ribbon, lace, brass bells and snowflakes from my stash.

To see these new stamps why not pop over to Funky Kits for a look from 10 a.m.
You won't be disappointed.
Now it is time for me to hand you over to the wonderful and very talented Donalda.
Happy hopping!
Oooo and don't forget to leave some loving at each blog ladies
as there will be spot "rubbertastic" prizes up for grabs!
