Gift Bags

It's a couple of years since I first designed these bags, I had nearly forgotten about them but have shown them to several people recently and they have proved popular again. The larger bag is made from 12"x12" scrapbook paper, just a bit of folding and there is a lovely bag. The smaller one is 8"x8" paper, a scoreboard is really useful.

Decorated Boxes

Here are two boxes created for a demo day at Keep on Crafting. They started life as plain little old wooden boxes, first step was to paint with Imagination Crafts Starlight paints. Step two I took a piece of rice paper from IC and stamped with embossing powder, using one of Sue Wilson's stamp sets from last year to give a Christmas feel. Next step I attached the rice paper to the lid and the left over piece to white card from which I die cut the flowers for the decoration using Magic Bond glue. Two lovely little gift boxes.

Christmas decorations

Saturday was a lovely day I taught five lovely ladies how to make my Christmas Hanging Bauble. I originally designed this bauble over three years ago. But this is the first time I have actually run the workshop my self. I had to pass this on to others to carry out the first workshops due to ill health so I was really excited to actually complete the workshop on Saturday. I have admit it has developed!!

Christmas Canvas

At last I have finished my sample for my next Paperartsy class at Keep on Crafting. Using Kay Carley and JOFY stamps there is lots of background building, feature stamping and triple embossing.
Love both sets of stamps as they are not just for Christmas but very versatile. Mine is very ice like but would look just as good in true Christmas colours. Each of the three elements can stand alone on a card or as a decoration!

Last weekend saw the release of JOFYs new stamps for Paperartsy. I have had chance to play with one of them so far, busy week. This one is just a little Christmasy but one element is good for birthdays at any time.

A different style

Using set three of Tracey Scott's new stamps. For this one I used pattern paper and did a bit of paperpiecing work. Makes a different type of result.
