Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year 2014

Hi to my wonderful followers and everyone, thanks for dropping in. 
Just want to wish you all Merry Christmas and Happy New Year, I pray that 2014 will bring you all good things...2013 was not such a good year for me, but I have learnt a lot, and I am closer to my Lord because of it.....so if you are going through something right now, hang in there, don't give up........there is light at the end of the tunnel and not the train coming towards you, as my husband will often say, lol....and a good sense of humour helps along the way. 
Our family tradition is to celebrate on Christmas eve. Due to family changes we now celebrate it at lunch rather that in the evening, and on Christmas day we often have friends over that don't get to celebrate with their families for various reasons....
I would love to hear what your Christmas tradition is....
I pray for you that you will have good health, or at least that your health will improve greatly, that you will prosper in all things....and thank you for being part of my bloggy crafty world, many many blessings from Hilde......

I was experimenting a couple of weeks ago and very vigorously and generously used my spray bottles and went over and had this massive puddle so waste not want not...I just grabbed a couple of plain white card stock and 'mopped'up all the excess.....shame you can't see the shimmer, but it's there alright...so that made the background for my tag, which is a large tag...but not quiet a big as the Tim Holtz tag, but almost.... I used the sponsor Image from QKR (they do have such lovely images) and I always colour with Pro Markers...I added some bling as ornaments, and at the top, used some fine corrugated card as my layering, and added a gold bow...there you have it..I didn't take a pic of the back, but I covered the back in two different Christmas papers that were pretty plain so I can write on it....hope you like it...

Craft Room Reveal : Hilde

Hi everyone, there is nothing more fun than to have a bit of a snoop over at someones else's craft room...
Well over at Crafting with Dragonflies, we are having a bit of a Craft Room Reveal, no one more excited about that than me, I love checking out where my girls do their creative stuff...

I have been very blessed indeed to have my own craft room now...but after 32 years of marriage, I don't feel guilty one bit....when the kids were little we never had the money, time or room....but now I can enjoy things a bit more and have more 'me' time....my husband loves to sit on the couch and play on his Ipad and I often hear the sound effects when he watches his car you tube restoration videos.
So we both enjoy each others company, and he shows me his video and I show him my finished creations, and my daughter who still lives at home will often use the computer, when I am crafting...

I have done a bit of a before and after....
Here is one of my corners before- bit messy 

Here is the after
 I finally got myself some cheap cube shelves from Fantastic Furniture and I like the look of it a bit better. You can see the ribbons in the jars to the left and my stamp pads...More ribbons, stamps, embellies and stuff are in the shelves...this corner is to the right of me where I sit.


This is a long desk that I can spread out across, sometimes I spread myself a bit too far.....
but this organised mess is how I create, to the left you see punches and stuff, lots of stuff .I need this organised mess, it helps my creativity....so I dont tidy this one............grrrrr
When I look out the window, I can see a bunch of eucalyptus trees, watch the Rainbow Lorikeets play in my neighbours gutter, and at the moment a beautiful Jacaranda tree in full bloom....very nice.

Before: Here is a shelf with all sorts of wonders, as I was tidying up,
I found stuff I didn't even know I had.This is right behind me where I sit...
Here it is after, changed a few things around, but not that much. Got rid of the tall skinny shelf on the right and replaced it with a wider one I had, just rearranged things a little. I use the ironing board for my die cutting, not for ironing, who likes ironing, bahh, not me, found a better use for it...
At the bottom right you can see my card stock....my stamps and dies are all in the boxes in the shelves.. 
Well there you have it, maybe not as big or as much as some, but still massive....and I  am very blessed to have it and I enjoy working in my creative crafty room....
I hope you liked having a look, blessings Hilde

I used an image from Delicious Doodles, the papers are from my stash, as are the embellies, the ribbon is lime green gros grain, and I used a light gold liquid pearkls (I find it hard to stop making those dots) and the pins are two bought ones with a heart in green and light blue, and the other one is one I made...yep I did....the border punch is the butterfly one from MS..
I always use pro markers for my colouring and on the butterfly I think I might have used just a bit too much glitz...

Crafting with Dragonflies # 14: Make your own Flowers

 Card 1: Embossed card stock using Tim Holtz Pointsettia die

Card 2: Handfolded whatever it's called, with cheery lynn die


Hi all, well it's Crafting with Dragonflies again, this fortnight we are asking you to
 make your own flower embellishment....
it could be on a card or anything or just on it;s own...up to you...
I bought this Tim Holtz Pointsettia die ages ago, and never really got around to play with it...so coming closer to Christmas I thought, perfect for this challenge, I was going to make one of those roly roses you make by cutting a spiral, got it all ready, just about to put some glue on it, glue is gone...by the time I found it the rose uncurled and went everywhere, so tried 2 more times, same thing...................deep breath...then I remembered I had this die.....believe it or not, I had not even used it before now, hanging my head.........
 I dry embossed the white card stock after I cut out the die, sprayed liberally with all sorts of glimmermists, and added silvery ribbon, and used liquid pearls. I will definately do a few more Christmas cards like this, as I really like how it turned out..

Then I played around some more , even though I aslo have the Tim Holtz die for this type of flowerette, I handfolded this one....it nearly ended up in the bin, do you think that think would stop from opening up all the time....? no .....of course not...
but I finally tamed it, and it was worth it...poking out from behind is a die from Cheery Lynn...

Hope you like them, because I couldn't settle of which one to pick, you got both.....
  go and check out what the Dragonfly girls came up with, blessings Hilde

I did use multi coloured thin card and sprayed over the top....hope you can see it ok....

DT Card for the Squirrel and the Fox # 55: Pink for Breast Cancer

Image from Delicious Doodles

Hi everyone, hope you are as excited as I am ...This week at the Squirrel and the Fox we are asking you to create a card in pink for Breast Cancer.....
lets find cure for that horrible thing...
This one is dear to my heart as I am a Breast Cancer Survivor myself, and having just completed my anual check up, it is still quiet daunting and you hold your breath, until you get the all clear...
I hate it and we need to stamp it out.....there is hardly a family anywhere that hasn't been affected by this hidious cancer in one form or another....most of us know someone....shame...
Here is my interpretation of this gorgeous image from Delicious Doodles...
I used papers from my stash and some bits are from Kaiser Kraft which is my favourite paper company, maybe because it's an Aussie company and I am an Aussie as well, bit of loyalty there. I always use pro makers for my colouring. Lots of glitz on the flowers.
This image already comes in gray graduated shades so it is easy to colour..
Can't wait to visit your blog and see your wonderful creations, blessings Hilde

DT Card for SAS4Kids #66: Early Holiday Wishes

 Using pre coloured image from the Paper Shelter called Snow Angel

Using pre coloured image from ColorINK called Sock Jingle Bear

Hi everyone, hope you had another great week. I have been busy giving my craftroom a bit of a tidy, and finding things that I don't really use anymore, and sadly things that I must of thought I had to have and are still in their original package!! Does this happen to you??
I have put some of them on ebay, can't hang onto everything, right?
Anyway more room now to fill up with more useful stuff....(or buy more stuff, he,he)
This fortnight over at SAS4Kids we are asking you to create a card with the theme:
Early Holiday Wishes
Might as well get in early and start making those Christmas cards, I have surprised myself on how many I have already made.......so I might actually be ahead for once.......(cough).....

Card1: For this card I have use a precoloured image from ours sponsor the Paper Shelter.....Love this snow angel digi, just gorgeous, the die cut frame is from a no frills no name die, and just gives it that bit of interest...if you have a look in the top left corner you can just see a set of wings....the paper is from a digi paper set from Raspberry Road....the other papers are from my stash, and I just added some blue liquid pearls..

Card 2: Papers from my stash, die cut is from a no frill, no brand die, I added some bling, and there it is...easy peasy, again I used a pre coloured image from our sponsor ColorINK...I also added the little bow, and lots of stickles around the boot cuff.

Now it's your turn to make some Holiday Cards. Looking forward to checking out your postings,

Elegant Lady Birthday Card for Challenges

Hi everyone, hope you are all well and being creative....
I have had this card half done for a while, and couldn't work out how to finish it off, and then today, it only took me minutes to do it...go figure...
The stamp is from Kanban, and the rest is from my stash, I always use pro markers for my colouring and I used a combinations of stickles and liquid pearls, my new favourite....
When I was colouring I tried to make the dress look like velvet, not sure how successful I was...but you gotta try new things....
Sorry about the reflection on the left there, its actually red foil card so the flash made it look a bit weird....

DT Creation for Crafting with Dragonflies # 12 : Make a box with at least 3 cards



 
Hi everyone, hope you are all well and ready to get crafty....
Today over at Crafting with Dragonflies we are asking you to;
 create a box with 3 cards inside,
 which would make an excellent gift...
we are asking for 3 cards minimum but you could make more of course...if you have a link to where you got your idea from even better, but not compulsory...
Here is where I found my inspiration on Splitcoast stampers, that Beate is amazing...
click here for the link to the you tube video...
I had to change my size to metric, and had a fiddle a bit, but got it all worked out....I used christmas paper believe it or not  (echo park - Times and Seasons) only because I love the dark red on the sandy coloured cardstock, I had some dark red ribbon from stampin up that was perfect for it...the lid was finished off with a borderpunch from MS...the image is from our sponsor A Day for Daisies, and was a freebie a while back..so cute...
I always use Promarkers for my colouring and I made 3 little 8 X 8 cm cards for my box and made them into little thank you cards.....they are always very useful....

Make sure you check out what the other girls have made so hop on over and look at their gorgeous boxed card sets...

Now it's over to you, blessings Hilde
