just a little bit more christmas :)

I made the wreath last christmas.....Its a Kaisercraft star wreath and boy was it hard to get all the stars just right!I used a number of different papers that i collected along with collections branches sprayed with Twiddleybits craftynotions Luscious Green,small bells tied with ribbon,collection doves(or birds) not sure what they call them,covered with Tim Holtz crackle paint Picket fence,Chipboard believe painted with Jo Sonjas Rich gold.I then painted all over with Modge Podge (so when it hangs on the front door i can wipe it clean :).Every door should have one and i hope you will give it ago!  Xx
PS i will be back with the girl layouts some time this week :) Xx

Just a little craft!

 I made these a little while ago now.Based of some amazing work from Maxine at Maxines melange.You need to pop over and have a look at her work and kits she has up for sale...AMAZING!!!
This is a layout i did of my partner Mario,We were going to a fancy dress party! I can not believe he let me put face paint on him..and take photos....but he did! On this layout i uses twiddleybitz bracket and cuttlebug bats and circles,both coloured with Sharpies,The letters are from Castro crafts ( stickers with black glitter).

This is just another piece of art for art sake..Made this at Scrapbooking to Di for when it was open just up the road from me..Partly made there and finished with bits from home.. :)

This Bird/Owl house was made with Carol..she has a great blog too! carol's Paper Pantry,you should take a look.Did most of this at a class but had to come home and finish it off...It really does nothing but collect dust..But i love owls.(not the real thing tho,as some of my new friends know how much i hate things FLAPPIN around me  :) )

And to finish of this post this is a layout i did of my mother and son.Im happy with the way this one has turned out.Again i have used Castro craft letter stickers,Bazzill,Kaisercraft tiny alphas,Primia butterfly,Kaisercraft bling,TC overlay and Bella Circle paper.

Engagement party (not mine)

Fiona and Darrens engagment party!!
I made this signing book asian/chinese theme
Fiona did not know about this....she loved it!
My friend Jenni and i gave this to her on the day.
Wishing well we dressed up !
Doing this wishing well was not easy...but it turned out great and collected a nice amount of cash :)
Coins made from plastic icing and dusted with simmer powder....
120 cupcakes
looked great once iced...not fun to get to the party!!
Finished! Thank the lord.....


This is an Avent calander i made a few years ago now..Its a 60x 60 canvas with boxes painted christmas colours,I used a brad and a small amount of glue to hole them in place,once i was happy i found any thing to do with christmas,glued / stapled  or sewed them onto the front of the boxes.Numbered the boxes 1 to 24 but u could put one in the middle so u had number 25( i thought kids get enough on the 25th).You then can fill the boxes with what ever treats you like,I found this to be great as i can fit a few treats in....i can easily fit 3 for my kids in each box..i have a friend that can fit 7....so in the long run it will work out to save you money.It is a little big to store but i wrap it in a blanket and put it under my bed... :)

KaiserCraft Train

This is the front of the train i made for my neice last christmas,
i gave her this filled with fairy pencils and crayons.
I used lots and lots of bling on this train,i think girls need lots of bling!I also use the kaiser paper and Kaiser rings to hold the train together and covered in matching ribbons.. it was a hit!
Just a little TWILIGHT
I made this one again for my daughter she just loves Twilight.This one is also a canvas with ACTs made from mostly foil tape(this is great stuff)
This is a mega canvas i made a few years back now, it hangs in my living room where lots of people WOW at it...lol.It is made up of 420 inchies,
for the people that read this and dont know what inchies are,they are 1 inch x 1 inch squares each of them with their own little art work on them.This was only going to be 130 or so inchies but i could not stop and knew where i was going to hang this straight away.(above my bed) but it was to good to hide away so now it has been "living "in my living room.Im thinking about doing another but with twinchies 2in x 2in.......maybe...not the best pics but you get the idea...looks sooooooooo much better in real life/art life!

KaiserCraft Draws

I made these draws for my daughters room using the KaiserCraft draws with the KaiserCraft calander on top (backwards).I the used the Teresa Collins BELLA GIRL papers to cover the front of the draws and the side of the box the draws fit into.I then use the Collection chipboard antique plaques on the front,before using the brads to hold them into place i cut out the center so i could place words showing what was in each draw.I then cover them with black glitter and covered with glossy accents.I added alot of KasierCraft bling to the top of the back to front calander,Glossy accented some X O X s to match the paper as well as a nice big crown to finish it off.
My daughter loves it and they are sitting on her beside table with things like lip gloss,bobby pins and rings in the draws.
