TILDA'S CHRISTMAS

Morning all,

I still have one or two photos left to share in my saved photos folder, although I am just about through them now.  So the next few cards will be the stragglers from way back.  This card is one I made in November 2013 when I was going through a phase of making pocket cards.  It is a card made very much from my stash using the lovely Tilda stamped image and my embossing folders.











Thanks for looking today,

CHRISTMAS WITH NOOR DESIGNS UK and SYLVIA ZET

Morning all,

Following on from yesterday's post (or should I say Epistle! Haha) I am sharing another card using the goodies I have recently purchased from Tracey's online Shop called Noor Designs UK ?

In addition I have used one of the lovely Hobby House Toppers bearing the gorgeous image created by Sylvia Zet.  This has to be one of my favourite images! 

I wanted to use a simple layout and was inspired by a card which I saw on the  Noor Designs Blog

CHRISTMAS WITH NOOR DESIGNS UK and SYLVIA ZET

Morning all,

Grab a coffee!  I have a story to tell!

Have you all seen that Tracey from the lovely Blog called Crafteezee 
has opened her own online Shop called Noor Designs UK ?
Well, at first I did not realise that Noor Designs actually are the same as Joy Crafts.  I have always loved using Joy Craft Dies and have one or two of their packs of papers too.  So you can imagine I did the Happy Dance when I saw that we had an online shop in UK specialising in these products.

I did not realise either what a lovely selection there is.  I am so excited!  They are a fraction of the price of some dies and papers on the market but the quality I just love, it really is good, and the few dies I have here all cut beautifully with no fuss at all.

Well, of course I placed an order right away (it would have been rude not to! lol) and could not wait to start playing!  So, over the next few days I will share photos of the the Christmas cards that I have made.  I have had such fun, and hey this could well be only the start!  I spotted the other day that Tracey now stocks the Dutch Doobadoo.  
Well, I had not even heard of this, so I headed off to Google it and found one or two nice Video Tutorials.  I am itching to give this a try!   If you take a look at Tracey's Blog and scroll down you will see there is a gorgeous Window template.  Now I think there is something quite special about a 'Looking through the Window' card.  It is something I have always wanted to try, so I might just treat myself for Christmas to this!  Well, it is nice to have a Christmas treat ourselves isn't it?  But, in addition there are stencils (have you ever used stencils?  I haven't - not yet!), Structure paste, Card Art, MDF, Chicken wire, all to name but a few , and they are all techniques I have not tried.  Ooooo I really think we could stretch our skills here and learn all sorts over the coming weeks!

You will guess, I am really excited about all this!  Is my excitement rubbing off?  Is it contagious?  lol

Are you still with me? lol  Right, well onto the first card.  The makes to follow are all quite simple designs, as I am building my Christmas card stock up.  I usually make a couple (at least) alongside each other, so you will see different papers and images on similar layouts too.

I used Crafter's Companion Spray sparkle on this card and some others, but it does not seem to have picked up in the photo.  (Spray sparkle)

Do pop over and take a look at Tracey Blog and also her  Shop if you have time.  I must say I received brilliant service, my parcel arrived the following day, and I received lots of welcome advice too on how to use different products which I had not heard of.  There are also links to Facebook on these pages where candies are offered at time.
