'Tis The Season

Hello Crafty Peeps,

It's December already and I'm still making Christmas cards! I couldn't resist the cute pixies from Sweet November Stamps. 'Christmas Pixie Chrissy' and 'Christmas Pixie Nicholas' go so well together I think.

I've been doing everything with traditional colours lately, so I wanted to change it up and go for non-traditional this time.


I decided to give them matching outfit colours for a more cohesive theme. I think this is the first time I've used this combo!


Thanks for stopping by today, your kind comments mean the world to me.

We're getting down to the last few challenges of the year at The Paper Shelter, including our Birthday Blog Hop coming up next week!

This week's theme is Winter Celebrations so I have made a fun layered Christmas card using 'Here We Go'


I used some snowfall acetate over blue card for the background and edged it with Liquid Pearls for a better finish.  My daughter chose the colours for the presents.

Warm Winter Wishes

 Hello Crafty Peeps,

It's been unseasonably warm here, so I'm just waiting for the proper winter weather to come! While I wait I am crafting and binge-watching Sleepy Hollow.

I love creating new scenes with images that I have used before. This time I have made a Christmas card using 'Mr. McFlurry' and 'Gnome Home: Holiday scene builder set'

Special Birthday Wishes at The Paper Shelter

Hello Crafty Peeps, 

We have a special challenge for you at The Paper Shelter this week as we are celebrating the birthday of Mickey Mouse.

First appearing on Steamboat Willie on the 18th November 1928, Mickey Mouse has remained a global favourite and become a legend in his own right. Undergoing some appearance changes over the years Mickey is still looking good for his years and his popularity never wanes! Did you know the first ever version of the lovable character was actually called Mortimer and only for Walt Disney’s wife Lillian did he get re-branded with his new moniker, Mickey 


So, in honour of this most famous mouse, we are asking you to create something using the colours Red, Black & White.

For my birthday card I have used 'Harlequin' as I think this image works perfectly with the colour scheme.  I have also added some yellow to represent the bright lights of the circus and because Mickey's buttons are yellow.



Please come and join in our challenge this week and remember, you can use any image but if you use a Paper Shelter image you are eligible for a higher value prize!

Christmas Cheer

 Hello Crafty Peeps,

The snow is falling and I'm sitting here with a hot cup of tea to warm me up! Figured why not make another Christmas card as it is starting to feel all wintery already.

This time I have used Power Poppy's 'Cup of Good Cheer' image, which I printed off ages ago and then never did anything with. I really must stop doing that.

I've gone for a pretty simple layered card again, as I usually do with Christmas cards. It's easier when there's lots to make and better for posting too!


I gave my cups and flasks a metallic look, then added some extra sparkle
