Winter Decorative Box

Hi everyone,

Sorry I've been missing for a short while, looks like I'm over the shingles & feeling heaps better, I've still got the neuralgia which can take some time to go!

But hey, its coming up to Christmas the best time of the year (or I think so) even though we are in summery (its a little chilly again) Melbourne..

I looked at my silhouette cameo and thought I can do something different this time (I love my new toy) so I'd like to share my Winter Decorative Box with you..



I've used Secret Tilda as she will be hiding presents he, he, this little lady always seems so comfortable in blue so I have kept the theme of "cool" blue and white with the exception of her present!

I used American Craft card stock, the christmas trees are La-La Land Christmas Tree die, Marianne Design Christmas Tree die. Magnolia Doohickey Snowflake, Noor Joy Winter Wishes Snowflake (down the side of the box) and Spellbinders Layered Poinsettia.

I have inked the edges of the box with Versa Color Cyan ink & the Poinsettia's too. With Martha Stewart punched leaves in blue & white adhered to the Joy christmas tree. Tilda, I have coloured with Copic markers, the sentiment is from Creative Stamping on a cloud shape I found in my stash.  The top of the box is tied with silver ribbon cord & has two cute silver coloured bells tied again with the silver ribbon cord, I tucked in two white feathers with lots of Ranger "Waterfall" Stickles for glittering shine. oh, and the two "blue" pearls I coloured with my Copics to match the blue theme.


I thought I might make some of these lovely "boxes" for the Christmas lunch table instead of crackers (Bon Bons) they do look a little like crackers but with no bang inside!! Must put on my ever expanding list some little presents to go inside these LOL..

Until next time, take care,

Anything Goes

Hi everyone,

Its been another testing few weeks for me.  Closely following my darling grand-daughter Tamara's 3rd birthday I now have shingles - ouch I hear you say!
Its not pleasant but its telling me to take more care of me and not other's for a short while.. LOL, which I plan to do ASAP!

Anyway today I am sharing a card I've made for a friend in the UK who's birthday is early December (how about that a month before its actually needed) I surprise myself sometimes!

I have used one of the fairies from Wee Stamps "The Fairies Set" they are just so cute, she is coloured with Copic markers. I made her a stepper card from AC card stock, with Maja Design DP "Enjoying the lovely fragrance" it is such a soft romantic design it suited the fairy perfectly, which is edged with Versa Color Lilac ink, the Spellbinders Gilded Gate 2 is white and has a sprinkling of glitter (can't help myself) on the side posts to hide the double sided tape, I've die cut the fairy with Spellbinders Floral Ovals (one of my favourite's) and she has a Magnolia Doohickeys large Dragonfly sitting with her coated in Ranger Stickles Star Dust, the Magnolia tag has a bow of white organza ribbon from my stash. The perfectly coloured mini blooms in Amethyst & Fuchsia are from Kaisercraft they complete this darling card.







A little close up of the very cute Fairy.
