Visions of Sugar Plums Day 2

Hello and welcome to Day 2

Today I have created 2 simple origami boxes with lids for note cards. All you need is two sheets of 12 x 12 pattern glue, just a little folding, so easy.

How adorable are these vintage style images from one of our sponsors "Amy Delightful"
 These boxes measure 4 x 4 inches...perfect for note cards. I have a few secret santa gifts to buy up to the value of $10 - I thought a handmade gift would be perfect.
 I have kept the sentiments the cards can be given for any occasion.


Here is the blog list to keep on track! Be sure to leave a comment on each blog for more chances of winning fabulous prizes from our sponsors. 

Another way to win is to link up to the challenge.  You can link through Saturday, December 16th.  Winner will be chosen randomly through InLinkz.   Prize is a $20 gift certificate toMama Elephant.  You can link to the challenge HERE.

A few things

Hello Everyone,
What a busy start to this month! I've had no TIME !
Here and there I have created a few things but have not had a chance to add them here.
I have a few post up on the "Lets DECEMBER DAILY" blog.....I have shared my kit ideas HERE
Today I have photo's of my DD cover....Be sure to visit the 'Lets DECEMBER DAILY blog to see what I have created with all this.

Kraft Plus has a BIG challenge this month

As soon as I saw this I knew exactly what  photo I was going to use - Here is a 
BIG Burger

I have used 'Block Party' cricut cartridge to cut the burger. Originally it was a single layer burger...I added extra layers, onion rings , cheese and sauce. First up I  had red paint dripping for tomato kinda looked like blood ( even the kids told me that's what it looked like). So then I mixed some brown paint in with the red...a little barbecue sauce or beetroot juice now? 
I used my type writer to write the ingredients of 'Bears famous Burger'.

This next week things are back to normal...I look forward to visiting you😊 

Happy Creating

Happy Holidays

"Mint Wishes" is my new favourite Christmas collection from Kaiser

Such a pretty inspiration board for the October challenge.

Here I am on  holidays in Canada...these papers are perfect for snow photos!

 I've used modelling paste and a stencil to add leaves to the background along with lots of extra die cut leaves and flowers. I really like the effect of layering the photo 3 times.

Sometimes I'm late posting.....this month I thought I'd be early😉 ... so I can link up with Kaiser.

Spring Beauty

Its the end of October already...Christmas will be here before we know it!
So Happy I found some time to play along with the challenge at "Scrapping Outback"
Look at the  pretty colour palette 

WHITE with Purple and lilac tones with a touch of yellow and grey or silver 
Its Spring the Jacaranda trees are in bloom.....Love the pops of purple colour everywhere! 

I've used a stencil and chalk inks to add the flowers to the background. 'Beauty' is chipboard. Lots of pretty paper and resin flowers, lace, die cut doilies, punched scallop border and washi tape strips tucked behind the photo.

Merry Christmas

Hey Everyone,
I've been thinking about this challenge at Kraft Plus all month...I was in all directions! Then last night I decided on just a basic window on my page.

'I Can See Clearly Now'
Use something see-through on your layout.
Think vellum, plastic, glass, bubble wrap etc etc.

The hardest part of this page was finding a suitable photo!

The brick background design, window frame, flowers, and banner were all cut with my cricut. The branches and leaves were all cut using Tim Holtz dies. I also managed to add my favorite crochet doilies. 😍The Christmas lights are rubons. My clear element is sequins and recycled packaging for the window panes. 

Hope you are having a great week, thanks for visiting

Happy Crafting

Canada Eh!

The October challenge at Kaiser is to use this mood board as inspiration.

It was fun creating this double page layout

Canada Eh! is die cut from Cricut Go Canada cartridge. I have covered it in glitter.

"The Scrapbook Emporium " is a new store which has only been opened a few weeks. I visited it the other day and purchased the Kaiser collection 'Mint Wishes'. The papers are so pretty! Not only for Christmas but for my Winter holiday photos in Canada.

I followed this double page sketch challenge from The Scrapbooking Emporium.

No automatic alt text available.

I think I need to buy more of this Kaiser collection...I have so many snow photos to scrap!

Enjoy your week Everyone,

Hey Everyone,
 Happy Monday to you!
Today I'm playing along with the second sketch of the month with "Lets get Sketchy"

This page coordinates with the layout in my previous post. The papers are an older Kaiser collection 'Sweet Nothings'

The flowers are a combination of stickers, die cuts and fussy cut from flowers from pattern paper.The hearts  are punched out from the same paper as the background ...I like the subtle texture they add!
 I went back and added some hearts to my first page too.

Enjoy your week, Happy Crafting
