It's Raining Cats and Dogs :-)

Morning Everyone, it's a chilly one here, the snow from the last couple of days has been rained away leaving a damp dull day hanging over us!!! but it's cozy warm and colourful here in the craft room.  I'm really excited to be sharing a new make with you today using papers and embellishments from the Raining Cats and Dogs Deluxe collectors Edition from Graphic 45 .  I loved this paper collection when it was released a few years ago and love it as much, or maybe a little more second time around.  It's perfect to create pet themed projects, but if like me you only have a goldfish and no pet pictures to add into an album or folio you can easily create beautiful projects by using the B side of the papers.  The colours in this collection are just gorgeous.  The Photo Folio measures 10 1/4" x 8 1/4", and has room to showcase twenty 6 x 4 photos plus additional space for more pics and memorabilia too.  Here's a pics of the pages  the video of th

Hand Made gifts at Christmas

Oliver & Harry playing chess  Morning everyone and Happy Christmas to you from us all.  I hope you had a truly festive time with your loved ones.  Sadly my little sis and uncle were both in hospital over the Christmas period, so Annie and Uncle Russ, we're sending you both all our love and get well soon wishes.  Each of the kiddy winkies had a hand made gift in with their presents this year. Sophie had a sewing Kit for her new house, Harry had Othello to take back to Uni with him and Oliver had his Compendium of Games with a special little note inside from Mum.  I was really overwhelmed to see tears in his eyes when he opened it.  There really is something very special about giving hand made gifts as presents.    I used my Mini Games Box Kit minus the boards and one divider for Sophie's sewing kit going vintage Graphic 45 with papers from the Magic of Oz collection. The Dorothy, Toto and 'There's no place like home' picture was just perfect for the lid. 

Winter Wonderland is here :-)

Evening everyone, how are you?  It's been a busy few weeks here with one thing and another.  I was down at SirStampalot on Saturday for a fab workshop in Janice and Andys new Warehouse.  They've worked really hard to create a cosy crafting area and we all had a great day creating our projects and eating festive treats lol!!!  Here's a few action shots from our day.  Janice thanks for putting on the workshop and ladies thank you for coming along and joining me.  Enjoy using your Seasons sets :-)   After a quick zip back up the A14/M6 it was off to meet up with school friends for a really enjoyable girly eve before it snowed by the bucket full over night creating a truly wonderful Winter wonderland outside on Sunday morning. Brrrrrrrrr!!!.  The perfect day to put up the Christmas Tree. Sian thank you for a wonderful eve, Lizzy Happy Birthday for 18th, Sarah I hope you made it home to North Wales and Linda Happy retirement for next week.  Sadly my little sis is b
