Reindeer's for Christmas..The Merry Christmas Challenge - November 2018

Hi all, well we are one month from Christmas, how did this year go so fast? 
I have created these very simple cards for The Merry Christmas Challenge. HERE

I did these kind of cards a few years back and thought I love them so much why
not create them again for one of my Christmas card sets..
I make 2 or 3 sets of Christmas cards every year to send out to family and friends..

I love this little reindeer and his knitted jumper.. I left him cream and stamped the jumper in
red Cherry Cobbler ink from Stampin Up.. I love this ink for Christmas and to be honest is the only red I will use.. 

The paper is from Kaisercraft..

The reindeer is a stamp and die set called ????

The flower is a sun burst punch and a circle punch..

The large fence like punch is from ??? and called ???  
My favourite card!!

All cards together, looks impressive right lol..

I hope I have inspired you
to create glorious things

My Bestie - I Love Winter

My Besties
How darn cute is this image 'I Love Winter'.

I changed the skin tone on this image and must admit I do like it heaps..
An unusual colour scheme as well though I have to admit it was a accident lol..  

How cute is this fussy cut bird sitting on the fence..

I fussy cut these butterflies as well and placed the largest one under a white die cut butterfly.

These are fantastic and I just loved how it turned out..

Don't forget to check out My Besties Aussie Challenge Here
to see all the wonderful cards the fans of My Besties are creating..

I hope I have inspired you
to create glorious things

Halloween Book - Paper Clips - I'm Not Afraid - AVSC

Hi All,
I created these Halloween paperclips to use in my Halloween book..
Using items from the kit and fussy cutting these were a blast to do..
I love making paperclip art..

Three Lollipops with Nuvo Crystal glaze..

I love this paperclip that is twisted and chunky.. I will make more of these ones for sure..

Starry Nights, I mean how cute is this cat!!!

I thought this pumpkin could use some glitter and then went the whole hog and glittered 
it all lol

I just watched a movie called House on the Hill, (creepy) and this reminded me so much of that house that I was nervous doing it lol.. My hubby asked what that round thing was? Why it's the moon I said, he looked at me like 'what!!'. Yep no imagination at all lol..

A tiny bulldog clip that keeps pages and flaps together. I just had to get a butterfly in the book somewhere hehe.

Pumpkin head on a spiderweb, yep it all makes sense somewhere..

A die cut spider on an dry embossed web on a tissue flower. A mix for sure..

They look wonderful together..

Can you see them all in the book.

I just love the heart paperclip on the cover and how gorgeous is that witch with the broom.. My darlin hubby whom I love to bits reckon its wrong to show you my vehicle. mmmm did I say I love him to bits lol..

I hope I have inspired you to create
 Glorious things...

Halloween Book - I'm Not Afraid - AVSC

Well it is still October and I am loving this kit from Aunty Vera Scrap and Craft..
I thought I would bring all the elements together in a book that I cased from

File Folder Mini Album Tutorial - Little Hot Tamale - Diy FIle Folder Flipbook  HERE

I could not buy the folders here in Tasmania that are the USA measurement or even the same tabs so I created one from scratch.. Let me tell you though, when I folded it together I had bits hanging over, other bits too short and totally mixed up.. Needless to say even though I tried to do the same design mine ended up the wrong way around and bigger (nope do not know how that happened at all) lol.. 
Anyway It turned out wonderful if not like Little Hot Tamale's, she was like lets leave space and group things together and I'm like 'hey that looks too bare It needs something there and a bit there , oh and something else there' hehe..
Check out the Book on youtube as well..

Cover of the Book..
I love this little witch and I knew I just HAD to use that gorgeous broom so I made this the cover of the book. I adore the little ghost that came with the kit, cute, cute!! And I totally love the paperclip on top of the cover..   

As you can see when it starts to unfold, You can just see all the lushiness inside.. 

I added this picture to show you all the glitter and shimmer that is right through the book, you may not see it on the photos but in real life this whole book shines.. 

Opened on the front inside..Lots to see.

 Opened on the back inside and there is still more to see.. 

The book kind of folds like a concertina style..

Page 1. Haunted Mansion... I added lots of tags and tied them all together with some ribbon.. I added a paperclip to this page.. I found a crossbone washie tape in my stash and the gorgeous washie tape from the kit also the washie tape Colour My Craft from Aunty Vera Scrap and Craft available HERE  .A wonderful Page..

I used a banner with little glitter bows and here are the tags out of the pocket.. You can also see here the paper clip is actually a large heart from the back..

Page 2.. There is Magic.. A cut apart from the kit with some of ribbon that I found in my stash (was looking for something else and seen this and said out loud YES!!).. Some more washi tape and ribbon with a star on a tab and a paper crepe flower brings this page together.. A Tim Holtz quote on the side and it is finished..

This is the back of one of the 12 x 12 papers and I have used it heaps throughout all my projects and it is so wonderful.. Even though this picture doesn't show it, a lot of images on the tag have glitter and shine on them witch is quite pretty in the light..

Page 3.. Creepy.. I found most of these foam words from the kit are too big for smaller projects but 'creepy' fit wonderfully on this page.. I added lots of little things for this page and the fussy cut eye looks creepy up close as I added Nuvo glaze to give it a shine.. Another Tim Holtz phrase cut out to give it that something extra.   

All the tags have Nuvo glaze and glitter on them and everything is distressed with Black Soot Distress Ink.. You can buy the webs from HERE 

Page 4.. Trick & Treat.. I made a tissue 'scrunchie' thing to use as a page divider so I could place some more of the wonderful cut aparts under it.. A die-cut house down the bottom and a few other bits and bobs and page done..  Also a little clip hold this page and the one behind it together..

Page 5.. Batty.. This page is the opposite side of page 4 above.. This page folds down hence the little paper clip.. How cute is that little monster stamped on the tag..Again a bit of ribbon makes the page that little bit special..

The page folded open..

I love that spider web background and the tombs . The little hat ephemera is a burst of colour which matched the the little cut - apart and the paper clip . Again you cannot see it but this page has lots of shine on it with all the bats coloured in and the headstone has Nuvo glaze.. The little lonesome ghost is just waiting.. 

The bottom of the flap fold out.. I adore that tiny owl sitting on a branch..

Page 6.. Trick or Treat.. I love this page and the ghostly foam words from the kits is perfect.. 

Page 7... Dreams.. Lots of pumpkins on this page, with tags and a paperclip as well.. A flower with a star eye and a tab - what else do you need...

How cute is this round tag... It looks mean.. 

I really enjoyed creating this book, it was tons of fun..

I hope I have inspired 
you to create
 Glorious things...
