Christmas Rosette Wreath

I got this Idea from the talented Dawn Easton hereShe makes beautiful cards and projects.

 So I had to make one with my crafting girlies who come once a month for a crafty afternoon.We had great fun, lots of hot glue and a few burned fingers. The girls went away with a completed Large decoration and smiles on their faces.

A great decoration for any time of year, just use appropriate papers.
Thanks for looking.

Steampunk part 2. Tag Book and Card

Todays offerings from Kraftyhands Steampunk Emporium CD  have all been made using the tag sheets, backing papers and paper ribbons. I have gone to town with various gems from my stash.
I have enlarged some of the paper ribbons by selecting and using screen shot, then paste into a Word document. I have a whole sheet of them now, instead of having to print a whoile sheet of various things just for the ribbons.
All papers have been printed on my New Cannon Printer, wish I had bought one of these before now. I am very happy so far.
A dull wet day here today.
See you soon.

Kraftyhands Steampunk Emporium CD

Later this month we have a new CD from Kraftyhands hitting the shop here called steam punk Emporium. What fun this CD is.

Here are my first 2 makes.
A T-shirt for a boy  using t-shirt transfer paper. I took a snap-shot of the topper and enlarged it to make it bigger for the t-shirt.
A card using my Steampunk Cogs and key, from my stash. I got these from QVC when I went there to have a look around and to do a jewellery making workshop. I didnt like the jewellery we made so when I got home, I took it to bits and now have a few more charms in my stash.
The papers from the CD are brilliant. the topper has 3 layers, so looks like an open book.
It doesnt really need anything else added as its all on the papers.

thanks for looking. Another 2 projects in the making.
come back tomorrow for a look at these.
