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!

Good Morning All and a very Happy Thursday!

While you're reading this, I'll be away at a music festival being an ageing hippy!  It's a lovely festival near Shaftesbury in Dorset called The Larmer Tree and this year Tom Jones is headlining...i will not be throwing undies at the stage!

Anyway, back to this weeks project for Creative Expressions...

Emboss a piece of Coconut White Card with the A4 Frosty Swirls Folder.
Attach a length of Black/White Bakers Twine before matting and layering onto Foundations Vintage Gold Card.

Die cut 3 Festive Collection-Sentimental Baubles from the Gold card.  Emboss them using the same folder.  Highlight the raised areas with Cosmic Shimmer Decadent Wine Gilding Wax.
Glue the 2 outer baubles into position and add the 3rd with 3d foam pads.

Cut a strip of the Vintage Gold Card. Cut a thinner strip of White card and emboss with the same folder.  Matt and layer.
Using the same die set, cut out the word "Joy"
Glue the strip onto the card and add the word with 3d pads.

Tie 3 bows from Gold Tulle and glue above the baubles.
Add Dazzlers to finish.

And here's the finished card!

It's another quick one to make....always important at Christmas when quite often, we have a lot to make!

Well, that's it for this week.  Many thanks for stopping by and leaving comments...always appreciated.

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