Snow Tag

I have been playing with the beautiful new IndigoBlu Christmas stamps for the Fruit Pixie. I just had to try the wonderful Snowflake lace to make this pretty tag.



The background was made by embossing with white embossing powder and then going over it with a pale blue watercolour.


I also used the IndigoBlu Merry Christmas circle stamp and gold embossing powder


I backed that with a Tim Holtz 3D snowflake and added a ribbon and charm to finish off.

If you would like to make this tag for yourself then you can go to the Fruit Pixie -

Washi tape angel

I have been making an altered style angel using some lovely washi tape from the Fruit Pixie. I designed and made her from scratch and gilded her wings and halo so they would shine.

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/
