christmas tags in a tin

Went to Craft Den in Sheffield on Sunday for an all day class with Ann doing Christmas Tags, thoroughly enjoyed it but did have a bit of a nightmare with my tags how difficult is it to cut tags????,

VERY in my case, DOH!! Ann was so patient sorry Ann. when I got home I cut them on the sizzix (cheat) still need to titivate some of the tags the bling doesn't show on the pic
Loved decorating the tin even did a bit of stitching!I just love covering tins, boxes, anything I loved doing Lynne's ribbon box pic to follow sometime.
thanks Ann and Lynne for sharing your knowledge, time, stash, biscuits and coffee

popcorn the bear, so cute

I have made two cards as part of the design team for http://craftden.co.uk/ both using popcorn the bear stamps they were both coloured using copics, popcorn E33, 35, 37, the blanket Y00, 02, 04, and the feet R00, 11,Lynne sells the full range of copic ciaos,the papers punch and ribbon were also from craft den the sentiment and charm were from stash,then mounted up on 3d foam and nesties

The second is another popcorn bear again done with copics E33 35 and 37, balloons B00 02 and 05 but flat mounted for ease of cutting out, a couple of decoupage balloons, a punched circle with a woodware sentiment and a couple of jewels.all again from craftden.The corners are a sizzix die.

so harsh but true

This is card number three from my week off from work,bit different not cute but I like it and the sentiment is so true I look like something the dogs dragged in without my war paint and soooo old its depressing. In my head I'm still eighteen and a size 12 and when I see myself in a shop window or shop mirror its like whose that old gimmer, oh my its me, its scary. lol never mind eh

Another magnolia, Edwin for a change

This is another card I did whilst I was off on my jolly,This is Edwin looking very studious (nerdy but cute)
The sentiment was stamped onto a jigsaw piece that I distressed with peeled paint and brushed corduroy the embellie across the bottom is from sizzix "frills". I think they are brill, they are 12inch long dies so they can be used in scrapbooking as well. Edwin is coloured using copics from http://craftden.co.uk hope you like him
