This is the last of my entries and it was for the  Papercraft section. Once again I have used Graphic 45 paper (which I just love ) The drawers under the easel card open and I have made gift tags to add to these.

This is my 12 Days of Christmas entry into the Christmas Decoration section at the Ekka. I used foam cones for the trees and Graphic 4 Christas Emporium paper which I cut into pieces and looped,pinned and glued. Each drawer contains a tag with an ornament attached to it.
I am thrilled to find I have won 2nd prize for this entry.

I am so excited at the moment asthe results have been announced and I was awarded 1st prize in the Off The Page section and Best Exhibit Overall in the Scrapbooking Section for this entry.

Craft Mad Monthly Swap

Image
Our June swap at Craft Mad was to make two cards with scallops, buttons and flowers to send to our partner.
My first card is square white card to which I added patterned paper from Papermania, then I punched a strip of white card with a Martha Stewart punch, added some lace, paper flowers with a button centre and Spellbinders plain and scalloped circles with a Doodey greeting.
My second card is a 5x7 sized card to which I added a layer of patterned paper, black linen card with a punched scalloped edge, Spellbinders Aster toppper flowers with detachable  button centres. I finished with an edge sticker and a greeting.

I like to add a little "something" to my parcel so this month I made a little gift tag with the same theme for my partner.
