One More Book!

Kimmie has got a whole load of challenges going on this week to celebrate her birthday! Challenge #1 was to alter something. Well, I was stood at my craft desk trying to work out what I could alter and the answer was staring me right in the face. I had made this accordian book in a box for Tony for Valentines Day and thought this might fit the bill! This is a picture of what it looked like before:




I painted it with red acrylic paint and then used various papers including HOTP and Basic Grey. Alot of the embellishments are what I have accumulated over the years!! And this is what it looked like when I'd finished it!









I must admit, I was really pleased with the result and plan on doing some more of these in the future.

Will be back later to post a card.....it's been all go here at the moment with everyday stuff (got to go out again in an hour!) and have been up until Midnight most nights trying to catch up on my challenges ....think I'm beginning to get there!!

Another AMD Wedding Card!

I had another request for one of these wedding cards and I must admit I love making anything Anna Marie Designs related.  So, it's the same layout as before but just different names.

Which Craft? Template

Recently made a few cards using the concertina template from Which Craft? which I've had for a while and thought it was about time I put it to use.  So, I have made a large concertina card...

...a smaller concertina card...



...and finally, a different type of card using the same template.



Christmas Scene Decoration

I saw this project designed by Anna Marie nearly a year ago and have been desperate to make it ever since and have just found the time.  It is a little time consuming as you have to wait for the different mediums to dry but I'm pleased with the end result (even if it did take me nearly an hour to work out how to make the gnome's hat!)
I added some craft lights which don't show so well in the beautiful sunshine we are having today but they do make the project look very special...such a nice finishing touch.
