My favorite makes of 2013

Well it certainly has been a year ! 
I wanted to share some of my favorite creations of 2013 with you, this is something i tend to do every year, it is nice to look back at your work i think. 
I made this tag for our Halloween challenge at All Dressed Up and just loved how it turned out, he is still one of my favorite images so far. 
I had sooo much fun making this tag, i got to use all my favorite elements and i was so happy with how it turned out, and it was this that i used as my design team submission for Globecraft & Piccolo which i am now part of the team ! 

I have always been a fan of LOTV, and everyone knows my love of distress style, this stamp is so cute. 

This has to be my most messaged about make ever, this is a pick me up book I made using my Cameo, LOTV stamps & Sheena Douglass Stamps, I wanted to create a “me” project to keep little memories for those days when I need a pick me up….and this was it. 
I was over the moon to be a guest designer for Peachy Keen Stamps in August and made this Haunted house for one of my posts. 

I couldn’t do this list and not feature one of my cards made using one of the fantastic stamps from Visible Image I have created a few cards using their stamps, but this is still my favorite.  
This was a design team make for That Craft Place and was the image is from All Dressed Up i don’t often do pink cards, but was really happy with this one. 
This is my most recent make for That Craft Place and was probably one of my most enjoyed projects of the year. 
Another design team make for That Craft Place i used one of  fab stamps from Lovely lisa for this, and then just made lots of mess with my dylusions by flicking with a paint brush, this is on the list for the sheer amount of fun i had making it. 
This is a recent make for Songbird challenges and the image is Bow from Kenny K, I have always loved this image and was really happy with the card as a whole. 

So there is my top ten of 2013, I hope you all have a lovely NYE and Happy New year x 

New Blog

Sadly my old blog that i had spent years building up has gone to  blog heaven, I was having major problems posting and editing, and each blog post was literally taking hours, this problem apparently could not be fixed  😦
So here I am with my new blog ! I have copied over what blog posts I could, and I hope i have notified all my blogging friends. Thank you for re-following my blog, and hopefully this one will run smoothly 🙂

That Craft Place Anything goes/Christmas.

Morning all, I can’t believe it is Christmas in just a few days !!! This year certainly has flown by ! 
It is time for our last challenge at That Craft Place, and the theme is Christmas/Anything goes ! 
Here is my design team make for this challenge….
I decided to make a Mixed Media Canvas for this challenge, I love doing these (I have been asked for a tutorial so will be doing one in the new year), for those of you with a Silhouette you can now get Silhouette Chipboard (Lisa sells it in the Shop) and it is fantastic…It doesn’t handle the delicate designs too well, but on this I created the Honeycomb, the “create” letters, the brackets, Scissors & the flourish. It takes various mediums very well and I have used Distress inks/stains, Gesso & Dylusions on it with no problems at all…so I highly recommend getting some if you are into your chipboard. 
All the other Elements on here are all from the lovely Lisa, including the paints & gilding waxes. 
I hope you like what I have created, and keep your eyes peeled for the tutorial. 
The design team have created some gorgeous makes for this challenge, head on over to the blog to check them out, and why not enter whilst you are there ?
