“Big Thanks to Becky” blog hop!

Standard

Hi Folks This blog hop is dedicated to Becky James, a wonderful Designer who now has left Docrafts to fly solo and we will miss her, but thankfully (phew) we will still see some of her fabulous work on docrafts in her freelance capacity! I have long been a great fan of Becky’s work and I just love her style and have learnt so much from her.  So to say she has been an inspiration to me is cheesy but very true! Good luck in all that you do Becky, and thank you for the sheer pleasure of looking at your projects!  I’m sure you will continue to inspire me with your talents!  Wishing you loads of Luck, Good Health and all the things that a Crafter wishes for herself!  Here is my link to the next blogger, Jill Pryor:

My project has a Christmas theme.  I made this Christmas tree from a paperback book! I embossed card for the front and back covers and added XCut word dies.

Book Folded Xmas Tree!

Standard

Here is the latest craze for me….a book folded Xmas Tree! I used a paperback book to fold the tree and then decided to use the remaining book as a stand next to the tree.  Decorated the back and front with brown card which I embossed and stamped with a wood grain effect. Decorated with dies. Added bow to the top.  Hope you like it! Im rather pleased with it, myself!

Scandinavian Christmas Card

Standard

owl and xmas 007I love this range of papers by Papermania! This year they are simply called Craft Christmas but all have a definite Scandinavian feel to them which I love as I am a fan of contemporary Christmas cards.  This is basically just matted layers, with cut out stars for a banner and reindeers about to leap into the air!
