Everybody Art - Gingerbread Time!

Good Morning!
This week at EVERYBODY ART we have the theme of Gingerbread Time!
I was a litte bit stuck with this when I first saw the theme but after a little thinking I had a little brainwave.
I decided to make a Gingerbread Man Gift Tag.

This also fits the Challenges at:

SIMON SAYS STAMP - LET IT SNOW!
(I have added some Snowflakes)
BUNNY ZOES CRAFTS - CHRISTMAS ... BUT NOT A CARD!




RECIPE:
Gingerbread Tilda Stamp
Circular Sentiment from Happy Daze
Brown Cardstock
Magnolia Paper
Organza Ribbon from Hobbycraft
Snowflake Punches
Stickles
Adhesive Pearl & Red Dew Drops

Incase you are interested here is a piccie of the rest of the Gingerbread Men I made ... I did keep some plain as my Dad likes to eat them with Cheese.


After making the Gingerbread Men I got a bit of a cooking bug so I also ended up making some Triple Choc Chip Cookies & Coffee Kisses Biscuits aswell! lol




I found it rather cosy baking all this with the Snow falling outside! lol
Don't forget to pop by tomorrow for a new Challenge over at CREATIVE INSPIRATIONS!

Yet More Snow!

Good Morning!
I hope you have all had a lovely weekend and if you experienced some snowfall that you all managed to keep safe and warm!
I don't have a card to share with you all today but I thought you might like to see some more pictures of the snow here and what I'm currently up to :)



These were taken around Sunday dinnertime.
You can just make out Millie paddling around in the snow (she has taken to only following her paw prints in the snow, she wont go on any fresh snow if there isn't any prints! lol)
I took a picture of her afterwards as I think she looks rather cute when the snow gathers around her mouth seeing she is so low to the ground haha




Obviously I have to show you something crafty so here's a shot of what is currently on my craft desk, I am making some Candycane Gift Tags for Christmas and managed to get the Images coloured and Sentiments stamped last night.


Don't forget to pop by tomorrow when we will have a new Challenge at EVERYBODY ART.
Oh and don't forget I have some Hanglar Stamps for sale !!!
Happy Crafting!

Everybody Art - Shapes!

Good Morning!
This week at EVERYBODY ART we want to see some Shapes on your work.
I decided to do something different to a card this week and made a Christmas Hanger.

However, I really am not happy with these photo's it was such a pain to photograph and I don't think it does it justice so may try it again later today lol

This fits into the Challenges at:

DARING CARDMAKERS - WE THREE
(There are 3 Parts to the Hanger)
SIMON SAYS STAMP - SPARKLE
DOTTIES WORLD - ANYTHING GOES + RED
MAGNOLIA HIGHLITES - HOME SWEET HOME
A SPOON FULL OF SUGAR - ANYTHING GOES
BUNNY ZOES CRAFTS - CHRISTMAS ... BUT NOT A CARD!

Remember if you click the photo's you will get a larger image :)


Here are some close-ups on each individual part.
I used the Large & Small Snowflakes from the Magnolia Winkter Kit to form a background using Embossing Powders in Silver Pearl & Sparkle.




I have darkened a section of the top circle in the hope you can see the snowflake background better.

RECIPE:
Magnolia Stamps
Magnolia Snowflake Stamps from Winter Kit
Nesties
Cuttlebug 'Snowflake' Die

* I CANT GET THAT BLOOMING BARCODE STICKER OFF THESE DRAWERS, HAVE ANY OF YOU GOT ANY TIPS ???

Update On My Craft Room!

Good Morning!
I thought today I would show you some updated piccies of my Craft Room. Which is technically my bedroom but it's more crafty than anything! lol I have been doing some decorating this week so I thought you might like peek.

I got my Dad to make me yet more shelves to go in my room seeing my crafty stash seems to be growing and growing!
I also decided when painting them that I would paint my Stamp Unit to match the shelves as it stood out like a sore thumb with it being white and the rest of my room being Cream & Red!
I'm also in the process of making some craft orientated decorations to go on the walls but I haven't got them finished yet so you'll have to wait for them!

I have decided to store some of my cards on shelves like this instead of in a drawer for a change along with some embellishments. Top shelf for 'Everyday' and Bottom shelf for 'Christmas'.


I have added a shelf above my corner unit for my Magazines.


Oh and incase your wondering yes all the boxes on top of the Stamp unit do contain Magnolia Stamps ... there are 2 Large Boxes for 'Everyday' and 'Christmas' along with 7 Medium Boxes for the Kits! lol You can also kind of see my PB Wooden Stamps collection.


Also I decided to give my desk a little jig around.


I do have yet more stuff to sort out in here but for now I'l leave you just with this lot lol
