Sleigh Bells

Helloooooo. I'm afraid that it is yet another Christmas based post!  (I'm SO sorry but working in the crafting industry we have to make Christmas cards in Summer as that is when all the Christmas related products start coming out!!)

So did any of you catch the Hunkydory Windows to the Heart 4DD on Create and Craft this week? Unfortunately my card samples that I made for the Create and Craft shows weren't collected in time by the courier so none of them made it to the studio - gutted!!

So I thought I'd share with you one of my brand new and unseen by anyone cards that I made with this pretty new collection - made in the style that I just keep doing at the moment!!!
I'm currently addicted to making these style of cards and this mini topper collection from within the Season's Greeting Windows to the Heart collection just suited it perfectly!
As you can see from the photo below I used a matching insert for the inside and then took one of the matching poetry panels from the new Second Little Book of Festive Poetry to put within the opening front section of the card.
I am just enjoying myself SO much working with all this Hunkydory loveliness!!

I'll be back again soon!!........

Festive Birds have landed at Hunkydory!

Hellooooo!  The gorgeous Festive Birds of Britain collection is now available to buy direct from Hunkydory.

This was my 'take' on one of the concept cards in this collection which is supposed to be a twisted easel. Instead I made up the pyramage and popped it onto the snowflake card and then used a piece of ribbon to suspend it within a snowfall acetate card. The snowflake card still opens to write in but instead of the card then just being thrown out once Christmas is over the snowflake will detach from the card and it can then be hung via the attached ribbon in subsequent years as a Christmas decoration.
Here's a closer look at each of them for you.

You can see the whole collection here.

New Windows to the Heart range launches today!

Hi everyone. I just had to pop by to share with you one of my cards that I made using the brand new Season's Greetings Collection from the Windows to the Heart range by Hunkydory.  This collection launched today on Create and Craft and Jak is on again at 1pm today.

This really is such a pretty, delicate range.

Without further ado here is one of my creations! I've taken a few different views of it!

Plus this shows the gorgeous matching insert.

This collection is the current 4 Day Deal on Create and Craft.

Nativity Decoupage

I thought I'd share another Hunkydory creation with you today using the Tis the Season decoupage collection which launched on Create and Craft a couple of weeks ago.

So without further ado here are three cards that I made with the Nativity Topper Collection in this kit.

This first card is one of the dimensional cards that I keep making at the moment. I just love this style of card as it looks a bit different but still folds flat for posting!
Above is a top view of the card so you can see just how much that centre panel stands away from the rest of the card. As you can see it has a matching insert as well.
 Next is a very simple card - just half a sheet of the beautiful printed cardstock with a sentiment.
And of course another matching insert!
 And lastly an A6 size card.
With another matching insert!

Tomorrow Hunkydory are launching another fabulous Festive Collection on Create and Craft and the imagery is so pretty and delicate! You can visit Hunkydory's Facebook page for some sneaky peeks of this stunning collection! I've already set Sky+ to record!!

Santa Paws is now available from Hunkydory Towers!

Hellooooo!!  I just had to stop by to let you all know that the super cute Santa Paws collection is now available direct from Hunkydory.

I honestly had SO much fun working with this collection - there wasn't one image that I didn't want to work with as they were all SO appealing.

Here's one of my creations that I did for the launch.
 As you can see I opted to make a side stepper card which I thought suited these cuties really well. (I'm definitely in to trying out different shaped cards at the moment!!)
From the angle above you can just make out that it has got a matching insert which you can then see properly below. I just love being able to finish off my cards inside like this as I think it makes them look more professional :).
Not only have Hunkydory got matching inserts for their Santa Paws collection but they've got one of their fabby paper pads too - love it!! You can check out the whole Santa Paws range here.
