i decorated this bottle of bubbly for my Daughter and son in law to be for their engagement this Christmas with the new kit the cinnamon spice collection about to come out in the Dragons Lair shop online.
i decided it was time to knit some clothes for all the undressed dolls i have and i am quite pleased how it turned out.
I haven't done much knitting for many years and find it very relaxing and easy to pick up and put down when i feel like doing some,
Here is a project that i have made for the Stampingwithdragonblogspot.ie/ for the November challenge Autumn colours why not pop over and have a look at the blog, the owl and pumpkin image, the backing papers and the gorgeous flower is from their online shop, see the link below, they have some fabulous new additions added. the white die cut flower is a Tattered lace die. I used a ball tool to shape the flower petals.
Here's a card i made for my friend who has left work to spend less stressful time at home, sewing, card making, baking and spending time with her Grand children, we will all miss her so much.
The base of the card is from a Hunkydory kit, i then die cut some buttons and Tattered lace flowers, then for the centre of the flower i punched out 6 flowers with a paper punch, poked a hole through the centre and pushed a brad through, sprayed them with water then scrunched them up and very gently unscrunched slightly and left them to dry.
Here is a card i made for the challenge on the Dragons Lair blog http://stampingwithdragon.blogspot.co.uk/2014/10/dragons-lair-design-challenge-anything.html
why not pop over for a look there are also fab images in the online shop.
Hi today i am posting some Atc's i made with the theme Autumn on the Craft, Chat, Share and Care, i have been taking part in their Atc swaps for several months now and i am getting quite a collection, the idea's people come up with are great.
for any of you that don't know what Atc's are they are miniature pieces of art 2 and a half by 3 and a half inch about the size of trading cards, they are made to be swapped with other Atc makers.
Hi i had a go at making some flowers with a die, all of the petals are individual and glued to a centre piece then layered up. The white one has the centre end of the petals coloured pink with Promarkers. The die is Spellbinders create a gerber daisy. i have since bought a Woodware paper punch which does similar flowers. i will take more pics next time i make one showing in detail and also the paper punch. Full of cold and also in a lot of pain with my Fibromyalgia, bye for now.
Morning everyone, i have been having a play with some of the new Autumn/halloween collection at Dragons Lair Designs soon to be released.
I printed off the Pumpkin paper which i love, the colours and design are gorgeous, also some of the elements, i slotted the paper clip under the paper and backed the paper in yellow and red card and stuck my buttons on with 3d foam pads to raise them off the paper.
I then added a die cut tree from my collection, the other buttons and cut out the witch, cat and owl topper and mounted on 3d foam pads all from the Dragons lair designs.
PROJECT NUMBER 2
For this project a bit of recycling, i brushed some PVA onto the jar and wound some cheap string around.
I then added some buttons and star from the Autumn/halloween collection and tied some ribbon around the top, a lovely pen pot for my craft table.
PROJECT NUMBER 3
For my 3rd project i made some tags, i cut some tag shapes from card then recycled some cardboard by gently tearing off the top coating to reveal the corrugation, added some Plasterers scrim from my Husbands tool box, then printed out my elements from the collection and cut them out, the bows at the top look very effective and no tying involved, they were attached by adding a small dot of PVA to hold in place then stapled, the 3rd tag also has a die cut swirl on, This collection is wonderful, why not pop over and have a look at the other goodies in store.
I was very lucky to be chosen for the Challenge Design Team for Dragons Lair Design's, the elements used are from their shop, pop over and have a look they have fantastic digi stamps, papers and other elements for digi crafting - details below.
I decorated this notebook for my Dragons Lair Design Team project, first i printed all of the elements i printed the girl in 2 different sizes, coloured with Spectrum Noir pens and die cut the "notes" using Memory Box Cirque Alphabet tags which i won in a card competition (thank you Judith). The flower is a Tattered lace lavish blooms lily die, i added faux stitching around the outside and finally used a Woodware mini paper punch for the mini butterflies.

Here is my rearranged craft room, bit tidier, my desks and shelves were all freebies, my craft room was a kitchen when my Mum was with us, i decided to turn it into a craft room, also has a sink in it, the kitchen units have some of my Husbands bits and pieces in so no room in them at the moment, now for some crafting, thanks for looking.
Morning, heres a card i made for a challenge with the theme buttons and bows. The rubber stamp is a Crafters Companion, Scruffy Little cat stamp her name is Niamh. I stamped and coloured her with Promarkers, mat and layered it onto card and paper from my scrap box then added a strip of ribbon across the bottom, tied 2 bows on my Bowmaker, 3 buttons and in the middle is a bow i made from more scrap paper.
I am having a big tidy up and move around in my craft room, maybe i will then find things, at the moment i can't see the floor haha and boy do i keep some recycling junk, my Husband is so used to it he is always coming in with bits and pieces he has found, he brought me a great storage cupboard from freegle and old school drawer unit they were throwing out, pics to follow as soon as i can it's taking me ages and i keep seeing things oooh thatswhere that went, didn't even know i had that, just stop and make something with that, well bye for now, brekie and off to tidy a bit more, be back soon.
Dawn Bibby had the pattern for this bag on her facebook page, so here is my version. it was knitted on large needles 6.5mm with 2 strands of white cotton yarn and one strand of beige ribbon type yarn which had a cotton feel to it. So thank you to Dawn for the pattern.
Anyone for tea and cakes, i knitted this tea set from an old womans weekly knitting pattern, i believe it is still available on their website. It was great fun to knit and i hope to add to it before i sent it to my Daughter for her reception class, she is a teacher.
Here is my knitted tea set, i have made it for my Daughters class, she is a teacher for reception age children. I have a few more cups and saucers and cakes to do. it is an old Woman's Weekly magazine pattern also available on their website, great fun to knit and easy.
A few cards that i made yesterday, when i need to make cards in a hurry i can always rely on Hunkydory and the quality is great. The bottom 2 cards are for 2 ladies having a joint birthday with the theme masked ball.
Hi everyone, i have made a card with Deedee's Digi of the month "So Cool", i used Papermania pastel paper for the background and scored a piece of acetate, added paper punched snowflakes and diamante stones and sandwiched the one half of the acetate under the backing papers so that the acetate would stick out, also used silver card, fabric padded stars, lace and adhesive trim.
I love this image the penguin is so cute, why not join in with Deedee's digi of the month.
