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.

More Sneak Peeks from Party Paws Christmas.

Well - so much for blogging every day!! Completely lost yesterday with horrible headache. So am a bit behind!! But - today is another day - and therefore I have another two Party Paws sneak peeks!! The first one is an adaptation of a card. On the Festive Fancies CD there are six different Large Tag Cards. I decided to make this into a large tag with a pocket, into which other tags could be places for safekeeping until use!
So I printed the tag out three times onto watercolour card - once for the back, once for the front pocket, and finally to cut out the gorgeous bear to decoupage on the pocket. I then printed a variety of the paper designs from the CDs onto Centura Pearl Snow White Hint of Gold. I printed the card on both sides to make the tags. 
Several of the topper sheets were used for the tags, and on the back of each (I forgot to take a photo - oops!) I used a sentiment from one of the printable sheets. To embellish, I used Die'sire Holly and Snowflake dies, with a few pearls, and added a length of ribbon to each tag.

This second one is a pocket card. It doesn't open - but as it says in the name, it has a pocket.
It's made from one sheet of A4 card - folded in half to create an A5 card. Then a corner was cut off, and the bottom and sides stuck to create a pocket. A small tag and envelope (for a gift card) were made from matching card.
The images are from one of the Topper Companion sheets, layered with papers printed onto Satin Finish paper. 

Remember - this is Create and Craft's Weekender - this weekend - Sat 9th and Sun 10th August.

I'll be back later today with another sneak peek.
