1950's Christmas bowl

I have made this cute card bowl from a 1950's pattern using the new card available from The Fruit Pixie. In the 1950's they made them from old Christmas cards which is such a good idea but I think it looks rather good this new card.


For full instructions visit the Fruit Pixie blog -  http://thefruitpixie.blogspot.co.uk/

This card is available from the Fruit Pixie shop - http://www.thefruitpixie.co.uk/a4-christmas-art-papers-nproducts132curpage-3-132-c.asp

Art Deco wedding card

This month a friend in my German class was married. She was having an Art Deco themed wedding, so of course I had to make an Art Deco inspired card.


The bride and groom are from Tattered lace and the frame I cut on my Cricut from their Art Deco cartridge. The papers, ribbon,buckle and sentiment are all form the Gatsby collection that was out a while ago by Craft time.

Autumn leaf wreath

Autumn is almost over now but I love the wonderful colours of the leaves. So I decided to make a wreath of autumn colour leaves to remind me of the beauty of autumn all year round.


This was made as a project for the Fruit Pixie and I have put a photo tutorial on the Fruit Pixie blog if you would like to make one for yourself - http://thefruitpixie.blogspot.co.uk/

 Or if you would like to buy the products I used to make my wreath, the Fruit Pixie has a new section in the shop where you will find a shopping list for the design team projects - http://www.thefruitpixie.co.uk/design-team-projects-650-c.asp

Graphic 45 paper pumpkin

I had so much fun making this little pumpkin, I don't know why I have not played with this idea before, its so quick and easy and has so many ways you can use it.

  For my pumpkin I used the wonderful Graphic 45 Steampunk Spells paper collection available from The Fruit Pixie but you could make beautiful autumn pumpkins decorated with acorns and leaves too.

Graphic 45 witchy art doll

Sorry I have not posted for a bit but I have been battling with horrible migraines and the worst thing I can do after one is look at a computer screen!   But I am back on top now and have been having fun making my Halloween Witch doll using the Graphic 45 Steampunk Spells paper collection from The Fruit Pixie.




She worked out a little larger then I was planning but I am so pleased with her.


Her head is one from my digital collection and I made her body from re-cycled box card.


I gave her a spell book



A broom from twigs from the garden



Some witchy potions



and of course every witch has to have a black cat!!

Now she is all ready for Halloween!!

For more details of how I made her visit the Fruit Pixie blog -  http://thefruitpixie.blogspot.co.uk/

Kyrsty Scrapbook Designs has released a beautiful Autumn flavour digital paper kit. Dont let the fact that its digital put you off, I just print them out onto printable cardstock and then you can craft as normal. Its cheaper and takes up a lot less room, plus if you need that 2 cm strip more , you just print it out , so you never run out! Why not give it a try?


For my deign team project I made this Autumn box, all cut from 2 of the lovely papers in the kit
