It's snowing!!!!

Finally we have snow here. It's only fine and has not come to anything though :-( I really would like a huge dump of it so we can stay in for the rest of the week. Maybe a snow dance is in order.... bells are you ready?.............. Anyway thank you so much for the comments on the wreath. I was asked a few questions so I thought I would answer them here. Sorry I don't have a tutorial I bought a polystyrene wreath from hobbycraft about 9 inches. (it's flat on the back) for about £1.50 I think. All i did was cut 4 12 x 12 double sided papers into 1/2 inch strips and then in half to 6 inches. I then curled the strips around a felt tip pen and stuck them on the wreath base with extra tacky (the red one) tape. I stuck them so they go in different directions. With the ribbon I stuck that on and then the paper strips over the top. It is quite time consuming but it took about 2 episodes of Greys Anatomy online and 1 episode of Glee - sorry that's how I time things lol. Hope that helps any questions give me a shout. Anyway I thought I would show you some quick and easy Christmas cards. I had some scraps of this Basic Grey paper so instead of it getting thrown in the scrap drawer never to be seen again I used it straight away - I am so good I know......... I have some very exciting news to share with you over the next week so please keep checking back. Stay safe in the snow and if it snows really bad please don't blame my snow dance lol Laura x

Christmas is coming....

Sorry I haven't blogged for a while it's been a bit busy here. I have so much I want to do but not enough hours to do it all in anyone else get the same? We are putting the Christmas tree up today so I thought I would share one of the decorations I have made with you. This is for my living room door. I have seen loads of these around blogland but I thought they took too much paper. They actually only take 4 pieces of double sided. I used an old stampin up paper pack that I bought last year which has now retired. All I did was cut the paper into half an inch strips and then into 6 inch pieces. Curled them around a pen and stuck them on. What do you think? take care Laura xx

Something a bit different

The boys have a birthday party tomorrow, it's the little girl next door. When speaking to her mum she mentioned she was going to decorate her room in a Cath Kidston style - all shabby chic, pink and girly. She asked if I could make her something for her new room. Well this is what I came up with - a look what I made board what do you think? I used Papermania Blueberry Hill paper pack as it seemed to have the shabby chic style. It made such a nice change to be playing with pink instead of the usual boy colours. Laura xx
