Dear Santa xx

Good morning  and welcome to my blog, Today I am sharing a card with you from Tonic Studios pick of the week  Build  Wreath Die Collection available on create and craft

Dies used :-
Rococo Fern leaf
Rococo- Round Bauble
Rococo - Teardrop Bauble
Dear Santa Sentiment

The card is an 8"x 8" and for this card I was just thinking of a large present wrapped in a big bow I stuck with very traditional colours for this card with the rich dark reds- greens & golds the patterned paper is from an old Boofle christmas paperpack, the fern leaf I cut in bright lime green but then distressed it with Tim holtz inks the card was a little fibrous  so the finished fern looks a little like velvet and then  cut it out twice  in a darker green and shadowed,  I cut a strip of red card to go down the centre of the card to look like a gift box that's been wrapped in ribbon  ,I cut the baubles out one in red and one in mat gold card stock and then backed them with  opposite  colours and attached some fine red ribbon to the top of the bauble and stuck it  down with  3d foam pads so they look like there hanging down and then I attached a large bown to the top and finished with one of our dear santa sentiment .

Thank you for popping by today

See you soon

Memory albums 2 Christmas Themed

Good morning everyone, just popping by to share the Memory Book 2 collection with you from Tonic Studios,also at the bottom of this blog post you will find a step by step slide show of me talking my way  through a basic album ,you  certainly  love these albums and being a newbie to albums myself I am  getting a bit addicted.
The first album I would like to share with you  is Christmas themed I know Christmas, but thinking ahead what a fantastic way of keeping those treasured memories past or present for gifts or yourself to pass down through the family. I think it's so important to put photos in albums with as much journaling as you can ,my husband and I have many photos  in our loft and nobody to ask who these picture's  are as there are no dates or names on the back of the photos and all my husband's side have passed away so i think this is so important.

All the album is decorated with craft perfect card stock apart from the red base card which is fill a box and is 3oogs…
