more Christmas makes

Hello again

A quick post from me tonight to share a few bits and pieces I made in the run up to Christmas. I was intending to post photos of more of the cards I made, but I realised they are still on the memory stick on the camera, so I will share those with you as soon as I get them transferred and watermarked!

So, instead, I have a few pictures of items I made which were sold at Avado Boutique in Draycott. This is a lovely gift shop selling hand-crafted items created by local craftspeople like myself. I used a variety of tools and materials, including my Pazzles machine and various dies, stamps, papers, ribbons, chalk acrylic paint, inks (distress, pigment and chalk), glitter and frantage powders.

three pretty tree decorations
candle wreath
tag featuring crackle glazing and frantage
tag featuring frantage and lots of glitter
more tags with lots of inking, glitter & clear gems for sparkle
These are just a few of the items I made. Other items included matching tags and gift wrap, floral decorations for champagne flutes and pretty floral wreaths to hang either on the tree or by themselves.

My tags are not over fussy because they were designed with value and practicality in mind. They were hugely popular, as were all the other items I put into the shop.

I hope you like my little makes too.

Back soon!

Love from me xx
