Christmas Countdown....

Hello all,  boy it's the beginning of crazy season!  Only 30 more sleeps my kids have informed me.  So with that in mind a made a project to help me remember how many more days, cause apparently I need reminding several times a day! 




So I decided to make a Christmas countdown.  I used  an old boxed frame from the op shop and covered it all in YUMMY Graphic 45 papers and then cut out the words on my silhoutte,  I love subway art I believe it is called.  After I cut it out I double embossed each letter with the totally DELISH WOW  RUBY ROMANCE embossing glitter.  Put them in the sticker maker and then applied to my project.





Here is a close up of the words,  I so wish I knew how to get a better pic of all the sparkle.


I made this tree,  the idea came from pinterest, but I must say that they always make it look so easy!  Not what I had in my mind but it still looks cool.  I have cut the star out and embossed it with WOW TWINKLE embossing glitter.



On the top I have made some cubes again off the Silhouette site,  and this will be used to do our countdown.  I have embossed the edges of the cubes with WOW GLAMOUR GREEN Embossing Glitter, and the numbers with WOW SILVER BELLS embossing glitter.

The kids came home after school today and all had huge smiles.

Last week I made  a couple of projects for memory maze chipboard and they are totally covered in STUNNING WOW embossing powders,  here is a couple of photos .

So have you been creating in preparation for Christmas,  you still have time to join our monthly challenge,  this months challenge is...



For our challenge this month, we'd like you to create projects inspired by the theme: Christmas and Winter! It can be a card, scrapbook,  mini album, an altered item, or anything that you can think of!

By entering the challenge each month, you'll get a chance to win a set of 6 embossing powders in a handy carry case. The winner will be randomly selected from eligible entries.

 Lastly I would like  to write a quick sorry ,  See this post would normally be up first thing in the morning for you. But I was waiting for the rains to ease off so I could take photos when the phone rang.  Amber-Leigh wanted to come home cause her finger was sore!  Sure was,  she had been bouncing on the bed earlier and landed on it and broke it at the base.  Maybe just maybe the kids might listen when you say "don't bounce on the bed'


Well I'm off to pack my backpack now as we are all off  for a scout trip to a farm.  The kids are very excited.  So until next month HAPPY HAPPY SCRAPPIN,  take care xox Donna

Life's A Beach

Good morning crafty friends, I hope you're all well and getting very creative this month!
As this month's challenge is summer and I live on an island it seemed only natural that my inspiration card would feature sea and sand.
To create my beach scene I started off with a piece of pale blue card and a rubbed a Clear Ultra Slow Drying Embossing Pad across the top several times. I then sprinkled WOW Peppermint Tea Powder and Under The Sea Glitter over the top, tapped off the excess and melted with a heat tool. I created the sand underneath using Gold Pearl Powder.


For the sea I ran a line of PVA glue in the middle of the sky and sand with my finger, sprinkled with Under The Sea Glitter and melted with a heat tool. For the waves I added small areas of PVA straight from the nib of the bottle when added Opaque White Powder.




The birds and sentiment I have used Opaque British Summer Powder which is one of my favourite new powders, great colour and great name!
Finally, I added beach in…

Handy Stamp Storage Idea

Hello everyone... Happy Tuesday! :D

It's Sarah here with today's blog post created for our Monochromatic theme.




I don't know about you, but I always find I need to use stamps from a mixture of stamp sets and I thought it would be easier if I didn't have to slide each stamp set in and out of the packets all of the time.

I have a bunch of empty CD cases that I had almost thrown out but thankfully I hadn't as they turned out to be the perfect solution! The part that holds the CD easily popped out so I could then position my different stamp sets within them.

I found an old wooden CD box but it had no lid and as all clear acrylic stamps are best stored out of the light, I decided I would make a box lid for it... not just a plain lid though... a Wow Embossed box lid!


Here are brief instructions on how to make it:



STEP ONE

Using pearl silver card, I created a square to the size that I needed (145mm) and added 30mm wide rectangles around the square adding in some t…

I got to play with two Altenew Stamps: Basic Borders and Thinking Of You. I loved them so much I made two projects with them! 

I created this very easy background using the entire stamp set as a background and inked it up with our WOW! Embossing Powder Inkpad (UK Shop, US Shop) and using a variety of our Primary Embossing Powders (UK Shop, US Shop) to create this rainbow effect! <3 The Primary Embossing Powders go really well with each other and I simplay love how glossy they are.
