This is the start of an inspiration patch, where I hope that fellow scrappers and creators will come and find some inspiration, or even leave some inspiration for me.

Mixed Media Christmas Cards

Hello Everyone

I still have some Christmas Cards to share and I hope that you won't get bored of them, now that Christmas is past and the New year has begun, with a bang! ;-)

Here is the first one.


I used some ScrapBerry papers, along with die-cuts and coloured, fussy cut stamped items.


The centre circle was created by using the resist technique with acrylic paint and distress inks.

I really loved the colours of this card and this was definitely one of my favourites.

Here is the second card.


I really loved this craft card too and the little red flowers are handmade. Here's a closer look below.


I love how the colours pop against this kraft background. I really think I must use kraft more often.

Thanks so much for popping by my blog today!
I always so appreciate your visits and comments!

Have a fabulous day!

Pair of Christmas Tags - Prima

Hello Everyone

I hope that 2018 is treating you well.
It has been a busy start to the year for me! But I managed to find some time to create this weekend, so my heart is singing! ;-)
I have also been doing quite a bit of publication work in the background and will share this with you in the next few months.

I have a pair of Prima Christmas tags to share with you, that I made this past Christmas.

Here is the first one...


I recycled some Prima packaging also, which is the base of this tag.


I love that delicate die-cut too! ;-)

Here's the second tag...


I did stamping, colouring and fussy cutting on this one!


On these 2 tags I also used Polkadoodles stamps, which I absolutely adore.

I still have some more Christmas projects to share...so hope you went get bored with them!

Wishing you a fabulous Sunday!
Cheers for now!

Sometimes simple is just as pretty! ;-)

Happy New Year - Penelope Dee Christmas Royale

Hello Everyone

I hope that you had a fabulous Christmas and wishing you everything of the best for 2018! ;-)
I wish you health, wealth, love, joy, happiness and inspiration! ;-)

I had a wonderful time with my family, some here and some in Limpopo.
It was really lovely and the best way to spend Christmas, surrounded by family.

I will share some of the photo's with you, but for now, let me share some Christmas Tags that I wasn't able to share yet. I used the gorgeous Penelope Dee Christmas Royale Collection.

I created 4 different tags.


I so love that pine leaf die-cut and the poinsettia one also! ;-)


Here are the other 3 tags...




Such a very pretty collection! ;-)

As I said previously...I will also share some of the photo's from our Limpopo visit to Redhill Farm.
It was blissful.










This is certainly one of the beautiful positives of Africa! ;-)
There is nothing like the African bush! ;-)

Have a fabulous day and fabulous 2018!
