Merry Christmas

Good morning crafters, exciting new launch on create and craft this morning brought to you from Tonic Studit's  the release of the glitter paste & Stencil Sets  these were fabulous to work with such beautiful designs in the stencils and such a gorgeous collection of colours in the glitter paste
Materials used:-
Blue topaz Glitter paste
Falling Diamonds stencil
Merry Christmas banner & stamps die
Rococo- penguin die set

The card is 8"x 8" the second I saw this stencil set it screamed to me icicles  and then I thought of this cute little character so bringing back the other dies you may have in your collection and then also using the merry Christmas banner sentiment that was a free gift from create and craft not that long ago,

 I taped down  a peace  of accitate and then placed my stencil over the top  you can then stick the stencil down with  either low tack scotch tape or masking tape I actually used some washi tape as it's cheap to use i then placed some of the glitter paste at the top of my stencil and with a pallet knife I dragged the paste down trying to keep it to a minimum amount of times you drag it down so the paste doesn't spread under the stencil I have to say it didn't do this once in all the samples I made but I tried not to over work the product, once I had covered the stencil I carefully scraped the excess paste off and put the remaining glitter paste back in the jar for future use, I then carefully removed the masking tape and put the stencil in a bowl of soapy water and I washed it straight away as it sets quickly I then placed the accitate to dry after a couple of hrs it was dry so then I could put the card together the accitate has a half inch score line each side and it wraps around a piece of card that is the same depth but in length it's and inch shorter than the accitate this is so we can get the bow effect to the accitate it's also been stuck with the red liner tape to make sure it stays stuck before I stuck the accitate down I created my little penguin and added some little white balls to look like he's been playing in the snow and finished the card with the Christmas banner die & stamps set and a decorative bow.

Thank you for visiting my blog today be sure to pop back very soon as I have more cards to share with you .

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…
