MORE SNIPPETS BOXES.

Hi and welcome to my blog, all my crafting friends, and visitors.
May I welcome my newest follower, and thank you for choosing to follow me, and I hope you return many times more to see what I am up to.

May I say a big Thank You for all your comments on my last creation.
It really pleases me to think you like my work.

Today I have some more boxes made out of my
snippets box. I do hope you like them.

CLICK TO ENLARGE.


These boxes are the same size as my last one,
just 4"x4".
The one on the left I used some old peel offs 
on some snippets card and cut around it and layered it.
The one on the right was decorated with die cuts
that I had cut out for another project and not used.
So you see I am recycling lots of my old bits,
and pieces. It's just amazing what you can make
with snippets, and of course I will be entering 
this into the Playground Snippets challenge also.

Thank you for your visit and time.
I do hope you are all having a fab week so far.
I expect you are all busy with C shopping at 
the mo.
Lots of crafty love.  JENNY.

A LITTLE BOX

Hi and welcome to my blog all my craft loving 
friends and visitors.
I do hope you have all had a great weekend.

May I welcome my newest follower to my blog,
and thank you for choosing to follow me. I do 
hope you return to see what I'm up to often.

Thank you also to my followers who continually 
visit me and make such great comments about 
my work.

The little craft fair I did with my niece wasn't a
very good success. Not many peeps came only
a few that were connected with the disabled club
she attends  and their friends. Still it was a nice
afternoon with lots of lovely disabled people
who were really lovely jolly, and friendly.

Today I have one of the little boxes I made for
the fair. This was made from my snippets left
over after I make my boxes for the 8"x8" size
cards. So you know by now what challenge this
is going into. I do love this challenge, and I have
made such a lot of new blog friends by entering it.

CLICK TO ENLARGE.

This is a 4"x4" size box.
I made the flower on top by gluing coloured
rose petals together, and adding some small
beads in the center.
Underneath the flower I layered some doilies.
Round the edge of the box I glued some 
Spellbinders Parisian Border Die cuts.

Thank you again for your visit, and time.
Lots of crafty love.  JENNY.

MILK BOTTLE CARTONS FOR CRAFT FAIR.

Hi and welcome to my blog all my talented friends, and visitors.
I am so sorry I have been missing again, but as
some of you suggested I have had quite a few 
orders when my daughter's colleagues saw my
Baby Card.
I also have been making milk carton boxes for
the craft fair on Saturday.
Originally I was only going to help my niece 
with her stall, but my sister in law suggested I
take some of my craft things as well.
Now my niece is disabled and makes brilliant
cards, so I didn't want more of the same thing
on the stall so I was in a quandary what to do 
till I was visiting Carole Zorro's blog and she 
had these lovely milk cartons on there.
You will find her blog HERE  please try and
make her a visit as she makes wonderful cards,
and other fabulous projects.

So here is what I have been working on.





Now I made all these with the Lidl card I 
bought a few weeks ago, just adding a few 
embellies. This card was slightly bigger than A4., and there was 30 sheets of it for the gorgeous 
price of £1-99. So I do hope they get some more
in soon. 
I have also made some jewellery boxes out of snippets, so I will show them next week.

Thank you again for your visit and comments,
I really do appreciate your time spent visiting me.
Hopefully I will manage to get round to visting
you also, with the heavy work load I have  at the moment.
Lots of crafty love.  JENNY.

A4 BABY BOY CARD

Hi and welcome to my very talented followers,
and visitors.
I am so sorry I haven't been about for a few days.
I am trying to get a lot of crafty projects ready
for a craft fair I am doing with my niece, next 
weekend, and time has just ran away with me.
In between I was asked to make a Baby Card 
for my daughter, as one of her Co workers wife
has had a Baby Boy, and she wanted an A4 size
card so they could all put their congratulations in
it.
So this is what I made, this fulfills 2 things as 
the blue die cuts and the corners were made
form snippets off other cards I have made, so
I can enter it into the Pixies Playground 
Challenge, Yay.

CLICK TO ENLARGE.


Now the inside.



This is an A4 size card.
The papers and the image are from Joanna Sheens
Baby Love CD.
I decided to play around with my Spellbinders
Grand Scolloped Squares for the design under
the image.
I cut out 2 squares, and used one in a triangle,
and then cut the second up and glued behind the
first to give it this pattern.
I added some pearls, gems, and little rosebuds
from my stash.
I glued some cut outs off the Parisian Dies 
around my sentiment.
Then I added a big bow.

Thank you again for your visit and time, and 
also Thank you for your wonderful comments,
on my last card.
I do hope you are all having a wonderful crafty
weekend.
Lots of crafty love.  JENNY.

THANK YOU CARD.

Hi and welcome to all my friends and visitors.
I do hope you are having a good week so far,
and managing to get lots of craft slotted in.
Thank you for all your comments on my last card,
and box.
I very much appreciate your comments and time spent visiting me as I know we are all so busy.

Today I have a card I made for Christine Harrop
to say thank you for a lend of a die.

CLIC TO ENLARGE.


Now the inside.



This card is just under 6"x6" size.
I made the base card from my snippets left over
from when I make an 8"x8" card out of A3 card.
I happen to know Christine likes purple.
The paper is Papermania Capsule Collection.
This is only a one sided paper so I photo copied
it on to card, and then photo copied a contrast
one on the back to make it double sided.
Then I made my flower out of the Heartfelt
Creations Sunkissed Fleur Stamp. I had to cut
out the flowers by hand as I am waiting for the 
die to be delivered.
I coloured my flowers and leaves with Whisper pens, and then sprayed them with water with 
Mica Powder in it to give it a slight pearly and
sparkle effect.
Cautionary tale use gloves for this as I had purple
hands for a few days.
While the card was wet with mica water I scrunched the edges of the flower to give it the
look you now see.
I got this idea from the Heartfelt Creations blog
that you can find  Here.

Thank you again for your visit and time.
Lots of crafty love.  JENNY.

A4 WEDDING CARD AND BOX

Hi and welcome to all my talented craft friends,
and visitors.
Thank you for all your lovely comments on my 
last card.
 
Well it's Sunday, and I can't wait to show you one
of the wedding cards I made for a customer, as 
the big day was yesterday.
The lady who ordered these lives in South Wales,
and I was asked to make them as she had seen my
work at my Dad's lady friends house. When I have
made her cards.

CLICK TO ENLARGE.

Now the inside.



Now the box.



This is a A4 size card and box.
I was instructed to use Ivory and Gold as the
brides dress was that colour, and she likes lots
of glitter.
The bridal couple were from a copyright book,
which I photo copied,and printed on Centura
Ivory Pearl Card.
I decoupaged the veil and bow, and added some
gold flowers and ivory pearls.
I used my A4 embossing folder that came with 
my E Bosser.
Now this is the first time I have made an A4 box.

Thank you again for your visit and time.
Lots of crafty love.  JENNY.

HEARTFELT CREATIONS BURST OF SPLENDOR CARD

Hi and welcome to my blog all my craft loving
friends and visitors.
Thank you for all your comments on my last
card and box.

Today I have a card I made with my Burst of 
Splendor paper.

CLICK TO ENLARGE.


Now the inside.



This is a 8"x8" size card.
I distress inked the edges of the white card with
Victorian Velvet, and Dusty Concord Distress
Inks, that gave it such a lovely colour.
I distress inked the matting card and the paper
with Dusty Concord too.
Now this paper comes double sided so I 
photocopied the lovely back piece because I 
wanted to use the border on the bottom of the
card.
I made the flowers from the same paper.
You  will find the tutorial for these flowers at
the top of my page.
I coloured my seam binding ribbon with Pine
Needles Distress ink. Wear rubber gloves to
do this otherwise you will have green hands
for a few days. lol.
I haven't put a sentiment on it yet as it's not
for anyone, just to go in my collection to be 
used at a later date.

Thank you for your visit and time.
I do hope you are all keeping well.
Lots of crafty love.  JENNY.
