Final Sneak peek - enjoy the shows today!!

Good Morning
The last of the cards I have made using the new products from QVC is a DL acetate card simple but effective.

I have used the backing paper that comes with the kits inside the card, a lush gilded topper on the front with another on the inside of the front to neaten it up.
Finally some of the gorgeous silver Chrsitmas roses just to add the finishing touches.

I hope you have enjoyed seeing my cards over the last few days and that you enjoy Stephanie's shows today between 1pm and 4pm

Thanks you for dropping by

More sneak peeks

Good evening
Hope you are all still enjoying the good weather some of us are stuck in Christmas mode crafting with the new My Craft Studio range that has it's debut tomorrow on QVC  at 1pm, 2pm and 3pm. Stephanie and Amy will be showing it to you in all it's shiny glory.
I've been working with parts of the up and coming kits here's another peek at the lush stash
This card is using 2 of the gilded toppers, I have cut the scene out of the first one and separated the 2 with card folded in 1cm sections and folded to make squeezy sides. I then slotted a piece of the gorgeous glitted acetate in between the layered topppers. which makes it look like a snow storm is going on!
I have also made a box out of the acetate to house the card
Another topper adorns the top of the box and I have used some of the Christmas silver rose buds and a tassel made from the sublime twine to decorate.

More sneak peeks

Good afternoon and what anothre lovely day too hot to be thinking about Christmas but you do need to start planning your Christmas crafting and QVC are starting the ball rolling this Wednesday when Stephanie and Amy will be showcasing some fab new products.

The shows are scheduled for 1pm, 2pm and 3pm.

After having a play with some of these I for will will be checking out the goodies and placing my order!

The first card I have done shows the gilded Christmas toppers and the metallic sublime twine. sorry but because of the lush shine on all these the photo's aren't that great - must try harder!!!

The silver snowflake backing paper I have used is from my own stock but I have used the twine to wrap around the card and the mirrored topper just doesn't need any adjustments. I have used the backing papers that come with the kit to make snowflake buttons using my epiphany tool. These are also threaded with the gorgeous sublime twine. A very wintery scene made on a sun drenched evening!!!

QVC Sneek Peeks

I have been lucky enough to be sent some of the new stash from My Craft Studio that is going to be featured on Wednesday's craft shows on QVC. I bet Stephanie is goign to have a ball demo-ing it.

Here's a couple of sneak peeks of some of my makes.

The new products are very festive in a very classical way and I have loved having a play this evening -I had to wait until it cooled down a bit as it just didn;t feel right Christmas crafting in the heat!

My makes will be shown over the next few days as a tease for what is to come on Wednesday - I don't know what the full kits will consist off as I have only been sent samples but from what I've seen the shows are going to be well worth watching and I'm sure there will be sell outs so get in there early.

Shows will be screen at 1pm, 2pm and 3pm so set the reminders on your TV

James turns into a teenager - or does he!

Today is James's 13th birthday - he's had teenage-itis for sometime now but is offically a real one now!!!
He has started street dancing classes recently and is due to be in a show in Hull in a couple of weeks so took inspiration from that when doing his card. I have done a really simple one - using card from The Paper  Mill, black vinyl and my silhouette.

I traced the dancers from an image downloaded from the net, cut the from th vinyl which made the so easy to position on the main card.

The next card was from Mollie for him.

She picked the bear from my Tatty Teddy Docraft discs, the paper and sentiment is also from the same disc and I've used Craftwork Cards candi just for added embellishment

Needless to say he was impressed with them but more so with the laptop we bought as a gift!
