About Me

My photo
Hi, I'm Pam and thank you for visiting my blog. I have been making cards for over 10 years and am an independent demonstrator for Creative Expressions. I am lucky enough to teach on cruise ships and also get the chance to demo at The Big Stamping and Scrapbooking Show at Alexander Palace. I run workshops for a local craft shop and if anyone would like details of the them please e-mail me at stephen.smith870@ntlworld.com I love to scrapbook but my all time favourite thing is to get messy with ink!

Let's Decorate!


Good Morning All and a very Happy Thursday!

I've moved away from the cards this week and thought I'd make a decoration for the house instead.

I'll apologise in advance for the dodgy colours in the photos!  The light was awful and everything looks a lot darker than in "real life".

Anyway, let's get started....



For some strange reason, I can't turn the photo around so please look at it sideways on!

Cover a blank MDF banner shape with Craft Consortium Decoupage Paper using the Cosmic Shimmer Glossy Seal and Glaze.

Pick up some Flake and Glitter Glue on a piece of Cut 'n Dry Foam and dab around the edges.  Apply Cosmic Shimmer Silver Moon Gilding Flakes.
Edge with Black Archival Ink.

Don't panic if you get a bit of ink on the banner as you'll be covering it up!

Die cut the Festive Collection - Deboss Snowflake from a piece of Coconut White Card.
Cover another piece of card with the decoupage paper and cut out the oval from the same set.
Cut out the oval and it's patterned centre from white card.
Layer the pieces up and glue into position

Add small Always and Forever Rhinestone Gems to the centres of the debossed snowflakes.
Die cut the Festive Collection - Holly Sprays from white card and glue into position.



Add white seam binding to hang the decoration.

And you're finished!

I hope you like it, it's very quick to make and you could make several and thread them together.

As always, everything used is from Creative Expressions.

Well, that's all for this week except to say thank you for visiting and leaving all of your lovely comments.  I do hope everyone is safe after the awful weather we've been having.

I'll be back next week with another Christmas project so until then, have a happy, crafty week!

Hello! good morning, I love the idea of them across my hall wall so when I open the door it looks festive without usual strings and streamers which I don't like, these look very classy and subtle. Plus can be stored for future Christmas's. Thank you X

Hi Pam this is a lovely Christmas project. I am having trouble taking photos at the moment I have invested in a daylight lamp. I hope it helps. Hugs Jackie
