At last I can share a few pieces that I have made for the Pretty Gets Gritty with Craft Buddy. I have really enjoyed making these and you can see loads more inspiration on Hochanda TV this Sunday at 7am, 10am and 12noon. Don;t miss out because all of the products are really scrummy.

I have made a short video which you can see at the bottom of this post but first here the pictures.

Hope you enjoy the shows xx

Second and last of the serviette/napkin layouts. This time the deer is cut from the serviette
The snowflakes are cut from a Tim Holtz Sizzix Bigz. It does come with a matching embossing folder but for the life of me I can't find it.
The wording was cut on the Scan n Cut. Both white and blue words were the same size so I just raised the white one a bit and it gave a snowy look.
I added doily's and lots of soft glitter to finish it off. I think it worker really well.
Well that's it from me for a few days. Off to spend Christmas with my lovely family. Have a very Merry Christmas and a healthy and prosperous New Year. xxx

Robin layout with serviette

So I've got a new hobby, as if I need another one lol, but I have started collecting Serviettes and believe me, Christmas is completely the wrong time to start this. There are so many beautiful serviettes out there at the moment.
One of my favourite places to go for these is Tesco where I can pick up a pack for £1.50 and of course once I had bought some I needed to play. This is one of the winter layouts I did for Scrapping Your Family in December.
Of course its the Robin that has been cut from the serviette. I found that sticking the top layer onto a thin cardboard using gel medium and leaving to dry, meant that I could put the robin on sticky foam pads and it was strong enough to work with.
I think you can just see the beautiful glittered effect made using Glamour Dust
and adding the gems dropping from the branches made it look really wintry.
Here's some more detail

Will definitely be experimenting some more and I have got one more layout to share using another serviette but I'll save that for later. xx

Live Beautifully.....

I have had a chance to finish one of my many journal pages today. Loving the colours
The background is made using Distress Oxides, blended together using baby wipes.
The flowers are made using paper scraps and a hydrangea confetti punch, some gem flowers and some baby pearls and gems.
Some are raised from the paper and some flat to make it more interesting.
The final touch is wording added by using a stencil and Prima Modelling Paste. The magic happens as the Distress Oxides from the background seep through the paste colouring it to match the background. Loved watching it happen. xx
