Reindeer all the way

Hey Folks, I'm a bit obsessed with reindeer this year...

I'm sharing three sequinned Christmas cards with you today.  I had a hankering to make something reindeer themed and these are what I came up with...

This one is a deer ding bats font with a string of Holly Berries sequins tangled in his antlers.

This deer silhouette is taken from a photograph and put in front of a shaker full of Alma Mater sequins.

And finally, this Rudolph has a shaker nose stuffed with the smaller sequins from the Christmas Wishes mix.
All good fun, I hope you'll agree!

Snow Bites

I'm pretty sure everyone thinks their nephew is the best, except mine really is the best!  This set of photos is from last year...

They'd popped into the supermarket to get some bananas and Nephydude decided to fill up his pushchair with packets of Snow Bites!

My layout went a little wrong - well not wrong just different to how I'd planned.  I got my cut settings wrong so I just etched the snowflake cut file on to the card rather than it cutting all the way through.

I adore the snowflake stickers in this months like for ever kit!

The story was too long to go on the front of the layout so I journaled both sides of a tag and made a hidden pocket for it.

Here's the process:

Friday Smiles

Long time no participate for me at Friday Smiles.  But this photo cannot be kept a secret...

I love it, it's like the sky has been playing with its paint palette.

Grab a cuppa and have a go at the jigsaw...

White Ink on Kraft

I am having so much fun with the latest like for ever kit 'cosy toes'.  And I'm having fun not scrapping!  I'm not making any cards to sell this year but I have made a few for me to send...

I've discovered a love for white Liquitex ink splattered on to kraft cardstock - it looks like snow and I love it!!

I've used a bit of Heidi Swapp colour shine in the background, an ephemera piece and some sequins from SpieglMom Scraps.

Thans for stopping by!

Stick It Down

Today I am sharing my take on the December Stick It Down sketch.  I was really taken with this sketch... so different and lots of different avenues to explore.

Here is what I made:

I have used Cocoa Vanilla's Make A Wish collection and some matching thread.  I cut a large script B on my silhouette cameo and used that as my starting point.

I, for some unknown reason, decided it would be a good idea to sew around the B to help it stand out...  It took longer than I imagined and had lots of kinks and wobbles in it.  But my whole outlook on crafting is there are no mistakes that can't be covered up, and the gorgeous turquoise glitter enamel dots came to the rescue!

I painted the wood veneer with an ink spray as the natural wood colour was not working for me.  And there we are!

I'd love for you to join us at Stick It Down this month... see you there!
