Guest Spot at Quirky's!

Very exciting!

Today I am guest designer at Quirky Crafts.  The theme is set by Lyn and is Christmas in July.

Cazzy told me she would send me some digi's and all I had to do was make a project and send a pic to her.  Panic.  I've never used digi's.  I'm not one for colouring in with pro markers and I don't like the cutsie images that I think of as digi's.  So I was really happy when the images from Stitchy Bear came through.  A lovely holly bough and a snowflake.  Brilliant.  I set to work...

...And came up with this...

A small holly wreath decoration. 

I printed off a page of hollys and coloured them with pro markers.  (Don't look too closely at the colouring ;) )  Then I fussy cut them out and attached them to a ring of card.  I covered the printed bows with seam binding bows from Crafty Ribbons.

I curved the paper and pulled the leaves over the seam binding to give lots of dimension.

I added glitter and then two coats of glossy accents over the berries.

The thing with making Christmas decorations in July is that I now have to put it away rather than hanging it over the door handle and enjoying it!!

So there is my first guest design project for Quirky Crafts using the holly digi stamp from Stitchy Bear Stamps.  I learnt from doing this project;  Digi's are not scary.   :)
So head on over to Quirkys to join in the challenge...

Thanks for stopping by!


  1. hi Laura,

    Love your wreath! Thank you for the technical term "fussy cut"!! I know exactly what you are talking about. tee hee

    Like you, I've not gotten into the digi images either. Your project looks great, though. The berries really do pop.


  2. Thank you for being Guest Designer at Quirky Crafts with your unusual and lovely wreath.
