Ooooooh ......

I loved the new single Christmas stamps as soon as I saw them released in the USA and had everything crossed that they would make the leap o'er the pond. I am so happy that they will also be available to our European markets. There's a great mix of traditional, modern, religous and not-so!
There's a picture below or use the button on the left to take you to the flyer! They are available until the end of January or while stocks last, mine are already ordered, contact me asap to get yours!

Paper angels .....

I spotted some very cute little angels on pinterest and had to make some myself. 

I substituted the wire for ribbon and added some more of the Frosted Finishes embellishments for extra sparkle. The skirts are made with the Winter Frost paper stack from the Autumn Winter catalogue which are sized especially for making smaller projects.

Apologies for the bad photo but it's just toooo sunny here to get a good one! The skirts are made petal by petal using origami folds.  My petals started as 3" squares.

The paper stack has 48 sheets, 24 each of two double sided designs and is acid and lignin free.

I love these flowers. This is a project that I made a while back, using 12 flowers which means a whopping 60 individual petals!!

Off to enjoy the sunshine, a goldie is saying it's walk time Mum!

Digital crafting ......me?

That's what I thought when I heard My Digital Studio (MDS) was being launched in the UK. Too be honest I wasn't sure about it,  ..... until I saw it in action! I have to say I love it and am completely converted to digital crafting. 

This is the first ever page I "digi-created" of my first ever goldie, my beautiful Honey.

MDS is a very user friendly (needs to be for me!) way to create and share your projects, the recipient doesn't need to have MDS too. There is an amazing array of content including patterned papers, stamps, ribbons, punches and embellishments on the initial programme with options to buy more with the regular add ons. I squeeeeeeeled to find Sage Shadow, my favourite ever retired Stampin' Up! colour on there!

MDS is a real bargain at just £13.95, but if you'd like to give it a go, it is available on a 30 day trial too. Be warned though ..... it's addictive!!!

Passionettes Autum Winter Blog Hop

Welcome to my page on our blog hop, a big hello to everybody visiting from Val or joining the blog hop here. I hope that you are enjoying the projects so far.

I loved the snowflake gift tags on pages 12-13 and this is what I wanted to recreate as soon as I got my snowflake bundle.

Here's mine made as a Christmas (yes I said it!) decoration ....

It uses the new Silver ribbon which is very shiny in real life and topped off with a Frosted Finishes embellishment which I am loving! The top layer uses heat and stick powder and Dazzling Diamonds glitter for extra sparkle. Here's a close up of the embellishment.

Making one decoration led to this project .....

Boy was I glad that the snowflakes have matching framelits for all the cutting! The hanging and bow is made from Smokey Slate chevron ribbon which has a lovely "weight" for making bows. The snowflakes were layered at different heights to give some depth and interest.

I also used the Frosted Finishes embellishments to make some very simple but effective hair decorations, exquisitely modelled by Miss Mol!

Thank you for visiting, I hope you liked my projects. Your next hop is over to Fanny.
