Christmas cards - Sassy Scrapper

Over at sassy to I'm sharing 
some fun easy cards you can make using patterned paper 
And stickers and a little bit of twine

I started off by covering my card with Christmas Cheer Cozy Quilt Paper
Leaving a border around the edge and I repeated the same with the Christmas Cheer Christmas Ornaments Paper leaving a part unglued to wrap some twine around a few times and added a little twine bow then I glued it down and added the cute little deer and the merry Christmas banner sticker

With this card I used the Ornaments Paper cutting it so I had a border and then machine stitching a border then I added a tree sticker and a little happy holly days banner sentiment a little cut cardstock heart with cotton thread and machine stitched the little red bow to the heart

Unconditional Love - scrapfx

Yep I've scrapped my fluffy boy again..
This months group post at ScrapFX we are celebrating life 
This was our group challenge
Quote to be inspired by and/or use: “Life is a Celebration,
Color: White + One (may use black as accent)
Inspiration/Theme: Celebration
Add some sparkle!
Journal it!
Incorporate some geometric shapes
Add a bit of you to the page! Make it yours!

My inspiration is celebrating love

I fussy cut the White flowers and used a copic marker the same colour as the pattern paper and added a touch of colour in the center of the flowers.
I mixed impasto with a drop of light blue paint and added a bit of white glitter and mixed it and applied it to the stencil
And flicked light blue watercolours  over the top of the stenciled background 

My shape of choice is a circle 

To keep it simple my journaling is a stamp
I used white spray paint to paint my chipboard 

Just had to have this lovely quote 
Love you to the moon and back

I've mixed and matched the some papers from Heidi Swapp

Getting creative !!

For the past week I've been creating Christmas stuff for around the home to make it a bit more festive and my girls have been putting Christmas decorations up all over the place lets hope they have left some room for me to put up some lol...
So here is what I've done so far 
My tree needed a star for the top so I used this template
And got to work printing it and cutting it out and then tracing around it twice on cardstock
Once I had it cut out I I used my scoring tool and scored both stars
Then lined up the the stars and glued them together 
Next I painted the star with texture paste and glitter glue then sprinkled lots of glitter till the whole star was covered then I cut a little hole in the bottom of the star to insert a tube for the star to stay upright and added a silver bow.

And here is a bit of Instagram fun

My next project was to make a wreath for our door
So I set off to look for bendy branches and bend them into place

And here is what it looked like after I had finished
Then I spray painted it

Now it's ready to decorate 

the pine cones are slowly opening up.

My next project was to make some Christmas cards

Then I thought as my mum lives away from us I would make a photo card

and inside of the card
So I ended up making one for my nan and pop too

Thanks for looking

Christmas Tag Banner - Sassy Scrapper

Last week on the sassy blog I created a fun decoration you can hang on your wall for this Christmas  

I started with a 12x12 bit of patterned paper I cut 2 4x12 inch strips then divided it at 2 inches 
So I had 9 bits of patterned paper

Then I cut 2 strips of patterned paper at half an inch
Then at 2 inches

To add the tabs to the top of my tags

Then I cut all of the corners of one end of my tags 
and punched the Botton with a border punch

  Next I cut 9  2 1/2inch scalloped circles of patterned paper with my silhouette cameo

I added some textured paste around the edges

  Using some White cardstock I cut 9 hearts at 2 inch

And added cotton and machine stitched the sticker letters to the hearts

Then I was ready to put the tags altogether 
and add some bobunny glitter paste and a bit of bakers twine to hang

And here is my finished tag banner ready to hang on the wall
