Decoupage Designs

These are just some of the decoupage designs I have been cutting out recently to make up some new cards. The one below will look familiar maybe from a card swap I made for Mittens over on the Crafts Beautiful Forum for the Christmas Card Swap! I am making yet another card sing the same design for someone special on here! Not entirely sure what I'll do with the others but, I shall just see what happens as I get creative!

Another Twisted Pyramid Decoupage

Just a few nights ago, when I had planned to get a fair bit of crafting done - which didn't happen -, I made this twisted decoupage card for no particular reason or occassion! the background paper I received very kindly from my most dear friend tiggertastic aka Sarah - Louise, over on Crafts Beautiful forum. I had been looking at this patterned flower fairie paper thinking what I could do with it then, just the other night realsied it was perfect for this decoupage design. I attached the design onto black card, leaving a few millimetres showing as it did not need much black showing, just enough to add some difinition! i am really pleased with my finished result. The flower vellum was attached using sewing with silver metallic thread and sequins and beads.

Twisted Pyramid Decoupage Card

I made this Twisted Pyramid Decoupage Card the other night after making the Pyramid one. I saw this image to be quite christmassy so have made fo someone as their xmas card! I attached onto a simple white blank card as the deisgn itself is very detailed and I wanted it to really stand out and keep fresh! I really enjoyed making this and it was very therapeutic. I finished it off with gluing on pearl beads! Just hope the recipitant will like it!

Pyramid Decoupage Card

I made this unusual Pyramid Decoupage card couple of nights ago! Never tried it before but, after seeing one of the CB forum members doing one of these it reminded me I had some of these too so, of course I had to have a go myself. I thoroughly enjoyed getting creative making this card and, I am ever so pleased with the results. I attached onto patterned paper that fitted in well with the colours of the shoe design and finished it of with sticky backed pearls.

CB Challenge Card

This was a challenge car that I entered into the Crafts Beautiful Xmas Online Party, over the weekend of 29th November. The challenge was to make a Thankyou card with a list of materials given. I thoroughly enjoyed making this as we had to make it in a specific time; we only had 2 hours to make it! thankfully I managed it in the end with poor Ava clining and hanging off my legs!

Flower Card

I made this card for someone's birthday recently. The person who receives it, sorry it's late but, not been crafting for a bit now! I really enjoyd creating this card using my own choice of patterned papers, colours and materials used. I use this gorgeous decorative ribbon with sequins on it, quite Indianish, which I bought from the Creative Stictches & Hobbycrafts Show last year in October at the SECC. I added a decorative button onto the top of my flower (made out of hand drawn and cut out hearts). I used some faux stitching using my Artists Pitt Pen fabal Castell!

This card I created was inspired from a project seen in Octobers Craft Beautiful magazine titled "Material World". I saw it a while ago and loved it and fancied trying it out myself. I am not one for trying out other sprojects as I like my mind to think for itself in the creative world but, I really did enjoy putting this card together and am delighted with the results!

Surprise Thanku RAK

WOW! I really on't know what to say to the wonderful Maddy over on the Crafts Beautiful Forum! Hunny, what a super lovely surprise I received this afternoon from you! Thank you ever so much for all the gorgeous craft goodies that you sent me as a "Thanku" - you know what I am on about hunny! This was really not nesscessary of you but, I do have to tell you it is all much appreciated and I can not wait to use it all now and create something for you with some of it! you are far too thoughtfull and such a dear friend! BIG THANKU to you Maddy. Al the best with your dsign work and enjoy everything you make! Looking forward to seeing MANY more of your outstanding creaions!

Up for Grabz

Well....What can I say! I really stupidy bought this magazine again which, I only just bought yesterday. I was meant to get the Papercraft Essentials instead but, the covers on both are very much the same so got confused and didn't think what I was ding. I only realised when I got home what I had done.....I then thought! "i'll just do a up for grabz on my blog and do a first come first serve". So, if you enjoy this particular craft magazine and have not yet got it and would like it along with the lovely free xmas papers please comment and, the first person to say that they do will receive this from me. If you are from CB Forum and are a member, who wins this, and are not on the RAK list please PM me with your address. Thanks for looking!

Gifts for Ava

We visited the Lakes last wednesday and went to Windermere for most of the day. We visited the Beatrix Potter Museum and Wow! It was beyond loved it and I sure as anything ADORED IT! I went into the Gift shop for a good look around and ended up buying these lovely reading story books for Ava. I am now longing to read these tales of Beatrix Potter to Ava! Just hope she enjoys them!

Gifts for Ava

This was a bag that I got for Ava from the Beatrix Potter Shop, as I just think she will adore it and will be handy for her books and things! I love and adore patterns like these for children.

Beatrix Potter Museum

We went on holiday recently to Centreparcs, in Penrith, near the Lakes! We had a week there and thoroughly enjoyed each and every day doing all sorts!
While we were there my MIL and SIL wanted to go to Windermere to visit the Beatrix Potter Museum. We had a splendid time there and here I have posted lots of photos I took of many of the characters Beatrix came up with for her stories! Enjoy looking, there lot! Jemima Puddleduck is my favourite!
