Puzzle piece heart

As Valentines day is coming up I thought it would be nice to make a heart project for my next Fruit Pixie post. The Fruit Pixie sells some cute vintage puzzle sets so I took those and some embellishments and along with some paint came up with this project.


Full details on how I made this project are on the Fruit Pixie blog - http://thefruitpixie.blogspot.co.uk/
and all products, except the ribbon, is available from the Fruit Pixie online shop  http://www.thefruitpixie.co.uk/

Bargains! ATC

A belated Happy New Year! Not got off to a great start so far, my Mum has been in hospital for 10 days with a chest infection so I have been busy visiting and not creating. Luckily she is slowly recovering now.

       I have managed to get my ATC done in time for the deadline in the Digital Whispers ATC swap. Here is my card and cute envelope I made for it.




I recieved a beautiful vintage ATC from my partner too!

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 -
