Merry Christmas

Hello and welcome to my last post for 2014. The last few weeks have been hectic and I have not had much time in my craft room, last week I made bath bombs for some of my Christmas gifts and there are a couple left so as soon as I've finish here I'm off for a lovely soak. Today I would like to show you my first attempt at iced sugar cookies, I have never played with royal icing before thinking way to hard, but my mum in law gave me her mother's icing gun so I needed to play and I'm loving my end result.



I love baking! And little man loves eating baking so theses have made his day. So from my family to yours, have a Merry Christmas and a happy new year. Stay safe and I'll see you next year.
Happy crafting

This week Jo has an awesome competition for you all to enter, all you have to do is follow the hop and each design team member has something for you to remember then go to Imagine If's face book page and write " I want it all"  and if you are chosen you have to quote all the things on each design team members page and you will win it all!
So from this page remember, "One Santa Sleigh"
So this week I have made a Christmas gift for my son, he loves Disney's Car's so I made him a garage to park what ever car is his favorite for the day in, but because he love's Disney's Plane's as well I put a landing pad on top.


This garage is made from Imagine If's MDF 3D box, I have cut a door from one window and covered one window up.
Hope you have enjoyed this weeks hop,next stop is Brenda and don't forget Jo's awesome competition.
Wishing you all a very merry Christmas

Christmas Stocking!

Hello, and welcome to this weeks Imagine If blog hop, This week we all got a beautiful hessian stocking to decorate, But Jo decided we needed to play a game among the Design team members, we all had to describe what we thought each others stocking would be like, sounds easy right!! Here is some of what the team wrote for me:
" something earthy" "traditional clean lines"  "something for her little man" " Bold block colours" and all I could see was vintage, but I wanted it to have a kiwi feel, so I have a cute little Kiwi chipboard peeking out from under my flowers and "Merry Christmas" is in Maori.




So for my background I have used the diamond stencil, then I have layered with crochet doily and an old book page, The picture of Santa is from Paper Arts 'Yuletide 5' Available from Imagine If, The red flowers I got from Imagine If and the white flowers, leaves and berries are just from my stash. Using my Lindy's stamp gang Sprays available from Imagine If, I coloured my chipboard frame and kiwi a beautiful copper. My Meri Kirihimete is just stamped in black into a piece of book paper then inked the edges to make it look old.




You can start the hop at Imagine If, or if you have been following along you have just come from Tash, and the next stop along the way is Carol. I hope you have enjoyed your stop here and have gathered a lot of Inspiration along the way.

Happy Craftin
