Busy week that has flown by !

This week has flown by , lots of stuff to get ready for my first Demo of this loop. too much to choose from as usual.!!
 have made a couple of special cards i am quite pleased with and a couple almost straight from the magazine with a few tweaks.
hope you like them !

I used an 8x8 kraft card, I folded in at the top and bottom corners to make like an envelope shape .
using the traditional xmas paper pack i matted script paper on to gold mirror card and then on the front of the kraft card under the flaps.
the flaps were then covered in gold mirror card i had embossed with a snowflake folder.

 I decoupaged a dancing couple from the strictly xmas glitter decoupage kit and matted that onto green glitter card first and then the red snowflake paper from the paper pack. that image was then stuck on the front of the card , slightly under the gold flaps. punch a hole in each side of the flap and tie with red ribbon as shown.
the inside of the card is covered with red snowflake paper matted over gold mirror card, i die cut a strip of snowflakes out of the gold with a tim holtz on the edge design and then embossed it with a dotty folder for texture. this is stuck down the inside edge, embellished with red crystals.
 the front is also embellished with red crystals and red sparkly dome stickers.

This is also an 8x8 card in white. covered in pretty purple/blue paper from the strictly party A4 ultimate die cut set. the chosen image was matted first onto back, with black lace added down the edge and then onto some blue from the same pack. again matted onto black. this is stuck on the side of the card.
on the top left i have stamped 'Party !' 2 and a bit times in white ink with a sparkly white embossing powder.
and also the treble clefs are stamped in the same way. i have added some stickles for extra glitter.
I made up the box from the same die cut pack but used a label from the pack to stick on the front of the box with added brad and ribbon.  so box is open. i added a party girl image and the party sentiment at the bottom . also filled box with pamper party goodies, nail varnishes and or lipsticks.

The following cards are from the creativity magazine, july/august 
The dress card is almost the same as the one in the mag. the snow flake one is quite a bit different as i had to use papers i already had and an embossing folder to get a snowflake effect& also added some glitter vellum.


  1. Lovey cards - just got the new magazine myself and loving the new things - too many nice things in fact!! Especially like the snowflake card x

  2. Thanks, they say to use a cd, christmas past, but i used blue striped paper and embossed it and the white card with snowflake embossing folder, bit of white ink on them.
    and then the vellum strip. the hearts paper is boofle also embossed.
    thanks again x

  3. Wowzers Janna! These are fabulous. I love them all. The sewing one is darling and so unique. The images you used are incredible and so is your coloring. You are very talented.
