Birthday Blog Candy Giveaway

Hello Crafters

I have no idea where this year is going, Autumn has whizzed by and we are now heading full pelt into Winter, I absolutely adore this time of year but it just goes too fast!  

The most recent project to keep me extremely busy is this Crystal Art Craft Buddy logo.  I was so pleased to be asked to do this, as of course it's a one off and will be at all the shows.  It took quite a few days over two weeks but to see the sparkle was worth it. Fortunately I had some help from my hubby on occasions and my mum and sister when they came over for Halloween.  Crystal Art are currently show casing at the NEC and you can find all their products here.

60 x 70 cm canvas, with each crystal measuring just 3mm.

Although the year has flown by there is still lots to look forward including this Sunday, 5th November as it's my birthday, which means it's time for my annual blog candy giveaway.  This year I have two packages to giveaway; a cardmaking/papercraft package and a mixed media package.  

- The only requirement to enter the giveaway is to leave a comment on this post.  If you wish you can let me know which package you would prefer but I can't guarantee you will received this, if picks two entrants who want the same package I will have to randomly pick who recieves which parcel.

- This giveaway is open to all my regular commenters from home and abroad.

- No giveaway hunters please, you will not be included. 

- Closing date is 30th November. Good Luck! 

Creative Blessings.  x

Craft Buddy Crystal Art Motif - DT Projects

Good Morning Crafters

Today I'm sharing my most recent make for Craft Buddy Crystal Art.  These little motifs are super cute and so quick to make, and would make excellent stocking fillers.  I have already added these to my own shopping list for a friend's little girl.  You always get plenty of crystals for your project, so you have lost of spares to add to other projects.

There are a few designs to pick from, I recived the Penguin, Snowflake and Tree. 

Once you have stuck your crystals on (the sheet is sticky and the crystals stick easily) just peel the motif off, the backing is clear and add to your project. They can be used on cards, tags, home decor, canvases, bags, phone cases and many more items that I probably haven't even thought of! 

I used the snowflake to make a simple festive hanging decoration, using matt silver card and a Spellbinders die.

I thought the Christmas tree was crying out for snow, so I used a snowglobe card and some polar white Flower Soft to make a shaker card.  I used the left over Crystals for the card front and added a peel off sentiment.

I used the penguin to make a festive bookmark using dotty acetate from Anna Marie Designs and a tassel from Joanna Sheen - who doesn't want a cute festive bookmark right! 

All quick and simple sparkly makes done in under an hour. 

The Motifs will be available at the Excel over the next four days, launched on Hochanda on the 25th November and available on the website shortly thereafter.

Creative Blessings.  x
