Twelve Crafters Crafting

I thought it was about time I got ma backside in gear and showed a couple of the samples for the newest Funky Hand cd Twelve Crafters Crafting. When the new cd arrived in the post a few weeks ago I was feeling a bit blarghhh with my crafting, mrs mojo had taken a long holiday and was sunning herself on some beach somewhere with some young hot looking summer fling lucky beggar and I just wasn't enjoying crafting. So with a little trepidation I loaded the cd into the pc and oooooh mammmmma!!! mrs mojo wasn't happy at having to come straight home from the beach but hey there was work to be done and after 20 minutes scrolling through the papers and images I was already filled with ideas lol

My first make was this wee angel bauble. I saved this packaging from a gift I received ages and ages ago and this was exactly the thing I had in mind for it! I printed the angel image twice and coloured it with my promarkers, attached them to a scalloped cirlce embossed with the snowflake embossign folder and attached some eyelash ribbon between the two layers.I first saw one of these Finnish Stars on Debbi's blog The Crafty Cuttings of Wiccababe and I HAD to have a go. The instructions said a 12"x12" sheet of paper so I printed both sides of two A4 sheets and had a wee go........I am definetely making some of these for the house this year, I think they will look lovely in the windows Next up I used a die cut cracker I received in a card making kit and covered it with a sheet of the paper then cut it out and put a wee tag on. I am making more of these for myself as placemarkers for the Christmas table :o)

Of course with all the Funky Hand cds comes the fabulous wordbook maker so I thought I'd have a go at one of them too lol

I have to admit I will ba making most of my cards this year using the cd, would you believe I still haven't made any Christmas cards yet? Ooohhhh shocking lol I have come to the decition I am not making all my cards this year, some people just don't appreciate them so I am only making for the folk I know will really love them and appreciate the time and effort!!

I've got a couple of more bits n pieces to show but will save them for another day :o)

Card for Lily

It was my gorgeous girl's 8th birthday on Tuesday! Awwww what a fab 8 years they have been though it doesn't feel that long! She had a lovely day, plenty of cards and pressies and a Hello Kitty cake :o) My card was made following the sketch from the Sugar Bowl and one of my favourite Gorjuss Girls, had to be one of them for my own gorgeous girl lol. She's very into bright colours these days as opposed to the pastel pink from when she was younger so I used these scrummy papers I got in a cardmakers kit. The flowers are all from my stash box. Letter cut with cuttlekids alphabet and glittered with Stampin Up dazzling diamonds. DDs also used on the heart. The text stamp is stampin Up.

vroom vroom lol

Hehehe I had fun making this card!!! My friend's little boy will be three later this month and he is a bit mad on Lightening McQueen, so I wanted to make him a card with that in mind but without going down the whole printing an image of it road. The paper and car template are from the Happy Happy Birthday cd by Funky Hand. The black square of card is embossed with an industrial looking folder, like the tread on metal stairs, the car buttons were bought yonks ago when I was knitting for Alfie and I couldn't resist them lolI used some acetate for the windscreen, some more buttons for headlights and some card candy too. The card goes round to the back of the card too, with rear lights, will take a pic later if I remember (wouldn't hold your breath tho lol) I hope he likes it :o)

Evening!! Friday night again how did that happen? I've no idea where the days go lol Since we moved I have been able to get out and about a lot more. Alfie and I go swimming every week and toddlers twice a week and swimming with Lily every week. It is fabulous!! I am loving it :o) This card was made using die cut decouage sheets and matching papers from Dovecraft that I bought ages ago. The tag stamp was bought at the secc as were the flower shaped nestie type things. I've used glossy accents on the cherry and icing, lace is from stash and the pink card stock was in the scrap drawer.
