Not Long Now plus some exciting news about a certain little Elephant


Start of a new week and a new school year,  Good Luck to all your little ones who are starting school today, and also to those who are moving up to Secondary School, I can still remember the fear I felt on my first day at Secondary School.

Well girls not long to wait now before you can have the pleasure of playing with the delightful new Lili of the Valley Christmas Release, in fact just over 12 hours, if you can wait up till midnight.  So as a treat for you Smile I am going to give you 2 sneak peeks today!!! don’t get too excited Smile

The First card is made using “Three Little Angels”


Lots of Distressing on this one, I carefully tore around the edges of two layer of Magnolia Papers from my scrap box and distressed with Distress Ink, I used a Nellie Sneden Corner die on the bottom layer of paper, and tucked a die cut label behind the image.   Didn’t have small enough pearls for the effect I wanted so used Opal Liquid Pearls, the image was coloured with Copics.


Copics Used:

Flesh: R02, E00, E000, Hair: E71, E70, E40, Dresses: R85, R83, R81, RV000, RV0000

Shopping List

Die-Namics Doily Die, Magnolia Backing Papers, Nestie Label Die set – Dies to Die For

Flowers – Wild Orchid Craft

Leaves – Martha Stewart Border Punch – Crafts U Love

Ribbon – Crafters Companion Christmas Organza Ribbon Set.

My Second Card is using  “Little Holly”


Before I start I have to apologise, I coloured this image ages ago for the Lili of the Valley advertising sheet and cannot remember the colours I used.  The papers are from First Edition paper Pad – Festive Treats.    3 lengths of ribbon have been threaded through the matted image and secured at the back at the top and bottom,  I added Sticky Buds to the back of the image to keep it in place.  The stars are die cuts and I have just added oddles of Silver glitter to them.


Shopping list:

Die-namics Star Die – Dies to Die for

Martha Stewart Border Punch – Crafts U Love

First Edition Paper Pad “ Festive Treats” – The Range

Organza Ribbon – Crafters Companion

You may have heard the whisperings that there's a new Humphrey's Corner collection launching...well, all these whisperings are true and Crafters Companion are VERY excited to announce that Humphrey & co are back and feeling very festive!
