Welcome to my blog!

From x stitch I moved into card making - now I am playing around with mixed media! I am taking part in different workshops and with help from crafty pals, learning about different mediums and techniques. Hope you feel inspired to create after a visit to my blog - Happy Crafting!

Dashing through the snow.......

Picture heavy :)



I found this lovely wrapping paper and knew I had the perfect stamp to make my own tags!! I distressed the tags with antique linen and used Stampin Up's Dasher and a Merry Christmas stamp but I can't remember whose it is.


I used heat it up sparkle embossing powder and a Debbie Moore swirl stamp to decorate the edges. I attached jute and recycled some ribbon and bells from last years crackers.

I am really pleased with how they turned out and now have lovely matching tags and papers for the adults :)

I will be entering these tags into the following challenges;


Crafty Cardmakers - heat embossing
ABC Challenge - embossing
Crafty Ribbons - make a tag (TOP 3!)
Do You Stack Up - ribbon or anything that ties
Make it Monday
