About Me

My photo
I'm a part-time primary school teacher, who started papercrafting 8 years ago, when I had a fancy to make my own Christmas cards. Since then, I have tried all sorts of techniques and styles - and I kind of like them all. So my work is very varied, which keeps me interested - and my crafty stash growing!! As well as cards, I love working with boxes and canvases - and I'm always seeking inspiration for new projects.

It's Sneak Peek Time with Party Paws Christmas Collection!!

Good morning!! I've been a bit busy already!! Just popped to the local market for some A4 card - and while I was there I found a great stall selling Fuschias for £1 a pot!! Couldn't resist - and four are now sat on my patio in the sunshine waiting for me to plant them!!

But onto the business of the day!! It's time to start sharing sneak peeks of what I have been working on recently!! It's Party Paws - such a cute little character!! The 'Party Paws Christmas Collection' will be featuring as the Weekender on Create and Craft on the 9th and 10th of August. The collection contains two CD's, eight A6 rubber stamp sets, a Hunkydory topper kit, Hunkydory card inserts, and a Hunkydory snowy acetate pack!!

As I have so many samples to share with you, I am going to attempt to blog one each morning - and one each afternoon!! This may not happen - so you may find two cards in one post!! 

So  - where to begin? I think with the CD's as that's what I first got my hands on. 
This card combines elements from both CD1 - which is your traditional Crafter's Companion format CD, and CD2 which is the newer format and contains PDF files. 

The main card is from CD2 - and is one of the Decoupage cards.  I printed this out onto Centura Peal Snow White Hint of Gold card, and also on Neenah Solar White card. This was so I could decoupage using a matt rather than pearly image. I then printed the matching image from the Decoupage section of CD1 onto Neenah Solar White to create the tag. The smaller tags came as part of the other sheets, but I created the longer one for the decoupage image using the matching papers. 

The little buttons are also from the sheets - covered in Glossy Accents to make them shiny. I edged everything with Distress Inks - Antique Linen, Evergreen Bough, and Aged Mahogany. I used some glitter glue on the flowers to make them sparkle.   

Don't forget - you can see the collection on Create and Craft Saturday 9th - 9am, 12pm and 6pm - and Sunday 10th - 11am, 2pm and 7pm. And keep your eyes peeled for sneak peeks from the rest of the Design Team - there are loads of fab projects to check out!!

Will be back later!!
