Something NEW from something OLD

Another of my A&P Show entries. I had spotted a wreath someone had made using the paper that comes packed round our orders and thought how clever that was. After a bit of trial and error I got one plaited up and formed into a wreath shape : ) I also used that paper to layer together to forma thick mat to cut the hanging bit from.

For the flowers I wanted to use some other freely available coloured paper so thought about all those magazines my Mum gives passing on to me. Score! Glossy paper with lots of bright colours and you can use our punches on it if you punch out 3 or 4 pages at a time. I used the 2 3/8″ scallop circle, 1 7/8″ scallop Circle, Fancy Flower and the Blossom punches plus the Boho Blossom for the small flowers on the hanging part. Punch ’em, Scrunch ’em and Stitch ’em together with a button!


More xmas goodness

Isn’t this gorgeous! Ive seen a lot of these door wreath cards about but this is one of the nicest. It was one of my Christmas theme Team swaps and I think the credit goes to my upline Jacque Pedersen. (someone let me know if I’m wrong) I’ve also seen some really cool punch art wreaths which are on my to do list.

Callena Lewis created this Snow Swirled tree card. She has used Pear Pizzazz and Poppy Parade markers to highlight the tree and embosses the snowflakes on the base card. The paper is from the celebrations DSP pack

I did a children’s birthday party today, Happy Birthday Rahmah!, with 9 children. They made my flip top cube box and a paperclip bookmark both using the Fox and Friends Stamp Set. Their favourite stamps were mine too, namely the monkey, fox and whale. The girls did really well and had so much fun. It’s always interesting to see what little changes they will throw into the project.
