Sweet Winnie is Shakin' it up for Christmas!!!


Good morning my dears,  I'm here to share another cute Christmas card 
using 2 of the gorgeous kits available over at 


and the stunning

I am so in love with all the fantastic elements included within these kits. The artwork, colouring,
design and sheer quality are so amazing.!!!  Well worth the money as I will
be using these over and over and again for all my Christmas creations this year.

I printed out Winnie from the White Christmas Bundle and coloured her using 
copics and Derwent soft pencils for shading. her coat
and hat have the softest of blues so it's quite hard to see in the picture but much more
prominent in real life.  If colouring isn't your thing then all the images are included
already coloured for you (all you have to do is print them off) 




The poinsettia's, papers and cute bow are from the Winnie Winterland collection. 
They've been printed off and fussy cut with a little sparkle added to the centres of the flowers.

I do hop you like my creation and there is an on-going challenge over at



Thank you for popping in to visit with me I hope you'll come back and see me soon.

Time!!! To Celebrate!!







Hello my dear friends.  I'm here to share a card made with pieces of paper I had left over
from taking a class with the lovely Clare Charvill ( My Creative Spirit) last week!!

We worked on making a fabulous Album using the beautiful Graphic45 Imagine papers.

My album is complete but I'm waiting until my head cold andvoice heals before making a walk through video.  Hopefully it won't be long until I'm back to full health.

In the meantime here is the card using those leftover and snippet pieces of card.  I also
used The large G45 Tag and Atc tag set which includes these fabulous flower dies.

My Clock came from the Square Tag die set.  This has to be one of my most favourite
dies ever!! I'm going to be using these a lot more in my creations.

Here is a close up of that fabulous clock 



Thank you so much for popping in to visit with me, I hope you'll come back and see me soon.

In the meantime have a fabulous day.

1st Junk Journal + walk through video



Hello my dears,   I'm here today to share my first ever Junk Journal

I have a large box containing lots of snippets and off cuts of 
many Graphic45 collections I don't ever throw any of this precious
paper out.!!  I've now found a way to use them all up. 

I've made many mini albums and 1 travel journal but this album was way
out of my comfort zone.  I view quite a few walk through video's over on 
you tube but believe me watching and doing are two entirely different things. lol

Any ways I've completed the task I set myself and I'm quite pleased with the
result, although there is room for improvement and I've learned from the
mistakes I made, but hey ho!!! that's what crafting is all about isn't it.
Learning and progressing, trying new genre's and most of all having fun.!!!

here is a walk through video of how I created my first Junk Journal. 
Grab a cuppa and a biscuit, I do hope you enjoy it.



Hugs
