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.

Bags of Nordic Christmas goodness!!

Morning - am sat watching Fiona on Ideal World - and the gorgeous Sally Jacks is loving my gift bag. So I thought I ought to share it with you.
This started as just a plain Kraft bag and I used one of the Topper Companions from the CD. I also used the dark blue and green co-ordinating papers. Now, I love the wood effect on some of the toppers - and wanted to make a backing paper from it. So, I took Super Quick Card 2 from the CD, and, using the computer, cut the back half off and pasted it twice to make an A4 paper!!  It's not that clear from the photo, but it's the lighter blue paper that I've matt and layered with.

The sentiments are from Santa's Helper stamp set, and I used one part to make a tag - and the other for the sentiment at the bottom. From the embellishment section, I used the stocking and bunting - and throughout I have used Kraft card for matting and layering. 

Will hopefully be back later to share the last of my samples. 
Enjoy your day!
