Moonbeam Duo

Afternoon All!
Just a quick post from me to share a little pillow box and matching card I made for my friend using the Moonbeam Meadow card stock, toppers and inserts. I bought the We R Memory Keepers Pillow Box board in the Crafter's Companion sale so I thought I'd give it a whirl!

Hope you like this little set.
Thanks for looking!

Faberdashery Easel Box Card

Afternoon Crafters!
Today I thought I'd share a little gift box/card that I made using Hunkydory's 'Faberdashery kit.
The original kit enabled you to make a frame card, but I adapted it with more Adorable Scorable and patterned cardstock to make it into an easel box card so that it becomes a card and gift box in one.

Frame lifts up allowing somewhere to write your greeting.

Lined drawer space to add your gift.

Hope you like it! I'd like to enter it into the following challenges:
ABC Challenge - Y is for Your Choice
Crafty Creations - Anything Goes

A Bear and a Bouquet

Well, Happy New Year folks! I hope you enjoyed your celebrations! I can't quite believe its all over now!
Today I thought I'd share a card which is a bit of a blast from the past - a Moonbeam Meadow image  from Crafter's Companion which I've coloured with my Spectrum Noirs.

I teamed the image with pink card, and papers and a doily from the Moonbeam Everyday CD, before adding gems, ribbon and a sentiment.
Hope you like it!
Back soon

Xyron Canvas

Afternoon Crafters!
Can you believe its the 1st of December already! Well if you are looking for gift ideas for crafty loved ones the new Xyron machine is perfect and enables you to make your papercrafts self adhesive so that you can make all sorts of goodies.

I used it to create this canvas - diecutting the flowers with Sheena's Wild Briar Rose die out of paper, running them through the machine to make them adhesive and then sticking them to the same shapes but cut out of chipboard - instant chipboard embellishments.
I also ran the lace trim, buttons, diecut fence and sentiment through the machine as well!

Hope you like it!

Don't forget to tune in to Fiona's Crafter's Companion shows on Create and Craft today.
Bye for now

Poinsettia Pop Up

Morning All!
I hope you are managing to stay safe in this wild and windy weather!
Today I'd like to share a card using the lovely Luxury Christmas card from Crafter's Companion. I decided to make a pop up box card on my Ultimate Pro and add some Die'sire Poinsettias - perfect for this time of year!

I love to have a real poinsettia in the house at Christmas as part of my decorations, but if you made one of these cards it would be ideal to give to someone who is unfortunately in hospital over the holidays so that they can feel a little bit festive too!
Hope you like it!
Bye for now

Stack Em Up

If you're looking for something to pop small Christmas prezzies in, why not use the Slip Case box technique from the Crafter's Companion Ultimate Pro DVDs. I made three in different sizes and stacked them one on top of the other before decorating with a poinsettia  - made from the Die'sire Poinsettia die, a sentiment and some ribbon. The card used is the lovely Luxury Christmas A3 range.
Hope you like it! xx

Winter Gathering

Morning All!
Just thought I'd share four items I made with the 'Winter Gathering' set from Hunkydory's Christmas Craftinator. I managed to make a stepper card, DL card, easel card and little gift box - all the insides are decorated too!

Hope you like them - I really enjoyed making them!
Best wishes
