WOJ POM and Penny Black Saturday Challenge


It seems like an age since I went AWOL, but I am back now with 2 projects for you. The Pick of the Month project set by Katharina for the Whiff of Joy DT this month was a to make a chocolate wrapper, gift bag or box, you must go and check out the fabulous creations from my fellow DT members on the Whiff of Joy Inspiration Gallery.

I have made 2 pillow boxes filled with Mums Favourite Chocolates which I gave her on New Years Eve. The template and papers for the box are from the Cute Companions CD available from Crafters Companion, I thought the ballons on the paper matched the fabulous new Whiff of Joy Celebration Donkey stamp designed by Alison Acton that was released today. Desmond (The Donkey) has been coloured with Distress Inks and H20's and cut out with Nesties new Label Dies. The lovely lush ribbon is from Raspberry Ribbons.

There are 5 more cute animals in this collection and also a set of sentients designed by Katharina so don't forget to order yours today.


I hope you have all had a great holiday season with lots of good food, and plenty of rest and are now ready to start crafting in earnest. An easy challenge to ease you back into the New Year, Embossing, we have a great prize this week from our sponsors PollyCraft, and my fellow DT members have come up with some great ideas to get you inspired. Just click
Here to go to the Challenge Site, looking forward to seeing your creations.

This is the first time I have used this stamp although I have had it for quite a while. It has been coloured with Copics and has been mounted on Green and Red Card. I am not sure who makes the paper as it was a spare 12 x 6 piece I had in my box, the Green Basic Grey paper has been embossed with the Cuttlebug Flower Embossing Border folder and has been rubbed over with distress ink, I have used an ash leave punch behind the prima flowers. Following some of my favourite crafters example, I have decided to make my New Years Resolution to decorate the inside of my cards (don't know how long this will last). The sentiment is another Penny Black Stamp.

Thanks for looking
Jacqui xx
