My Project :

This week ive been able to work with Toucan Scraps again :O) Oh such fun, As Angela has just created these fantastic Calendar Tabs for 2011 which are available here and ive also made her confetti boxes, that are available here.

Ive made up 3 calendar pages that are 8x8. The confetti boxes i used to fill with chocolate coins and tree decorations that i made :O)


Heres the confetti boxes that i made which were filled with the tree decorations.

Heres the October Calendar page. I themed this page using Autumnal colours. Using leaf backing paper that i edged the edge of the leaves in gold stickles. I used co ordinating gems on the tabs and i also attatched a leaf brad that i had. ( Click on the pictures to make them larger)

My November page was created using a firework background paper. It needed abit of bling too ;O) So i followed the firework lines with gold stickles to enhance the paper. I then added extra stickles on the tab to give more shine.

The December page that i created was made using Christmas tree die cuts That i ran through my cuttlebig snowflakes folder to create a snowflake embossed tree. Of course i had to add lots of red and clear 2mm gems. The top of the branches were edged in stickles. Then i added Snow using my snow marker. I then added a Happy Holidays ribbon and more snow.. Well after the past 2 weeks we have had in UK i figured it seemed the right thing to do ;O)

This week also sees a few new names on the DT blog Roll, Please stop by the 7 new ladies blogs and give them abit of love.

Creative Craft World ' Family challenge'

At Creative Craft World its our final challenge of the year :O(

The theme was chosen by Sarah W. The theme that Sarah chose was Family and you have to use abit of metal....

Heres a sneak peak of my project

For my metal i used some mini brads, which were used to hold the name plate in place.

I started my project with white flowers ( Wild orchid crafts ones) Then coloured then using my promarkers to match the colours in my project. The flowers were then edged in Stickles to give them abit of bling.

The base paper that i used was Basic Grey. I added 2mm clear gems to the middle of all the pink coloured flowers. I also used 2 different Pink Bazzil Basics and 1 Brown Bazzil basics.

Die Cuts are Nesties labels 4, Sizzix Cattycorner alphabet and Marianne Ds swirls. The tips of the swirls were finished with 2mm pink gems.

Heres my finished Scrapbook page...... For my mum . Who has taught me all i know about Family values !!
