I didn’t really spend Christmas with Gina’s Designs as the title suggests lol, although thanks to the wonders of technology Gina and I did spend Christmas morning together 🙂
I have a layout for you today made using the new String Alongs in the store, embossed in separate areas using a versamark pen. It seems like forever since I did a physical scrapbook layout instead of a digital one and I really enjoyed making it!
Our boys decided to get us up at 5.15 am on Christmas Day morning, hence the title for the layout, I had the boys write onto some tags with an embossing pen which I then embossed with clear powder along with my own tag as well. When I put the layout together I created pockets for the tags by gluing down only tiny bits of the strip of paper that the tags sit behind, thus allowing the viewer to take out the tags a read the reverse (which explains the title!)
Where has the year gone, I can’t believe we are into November already. Well the beginning of the month means it is time for a new challenge over at the Crafty bloggers network challenge blog and this month we have some stamps from Just Some Lines up to grabs.
Here is the card I made for your inspiration.

Why not hop over to the blog and see what my fellow teamies have made for you to see.
The theme for the challenge over at Clarity Stamp Challenge blog this month is Winter so I decided to create this snowglobe card, I made my own stencil for the snowglobe from a file cover.
I wrote instructions in order to put it on a site I belong to called Instructables, you can see them here.I would love it if you went and voted for me in the competition over there (you have to become a member to vote but that is free) There are all sorts of instructables on that site, just check it out – not only crafty stuff but pretty much anything you can imagine!
I used the Re mountable Winter Wonderland clear stamp set and the 21 Remountable Winter Trees Clear Stamp Set along with Chipped Sapphire and Vintage Photo Distress ink
Only another few days to enter our “Anything Goes challenge” over at Crafty Bloggers Network to win a prize from Rick St Dennis. Here is my inspiration Monday card using the cute little bear waiting at the North Pole.

The SplodgeAway show on Create and Craft tv last week was fab! there were SO many brilliant samples created for it I was blown away by them all. I am really very lucky to be part of such a talented DT, hop over to the SplodeAway Blog to see them all as they are being showcased there all this week. Here are the projects I made (although Suzie did a better job of showing them off – thanks Suzie):
For more details of the products and better pictures, please go take a look on the SplodgeAway Blog.
Warning: Picture heavy post!
What a busy show Tom and Hazel had on Create and Craft TV on Tuesday! I am really not surprised as they had some awesome masks on sale. When you have done here pop over to the SplodgeAway blog and see what the rest of the DT created as all the samples were awesome. Here are the samples I created for the show.
First up we have the Bulldog, Light bulb and Drips from the Altered Art Kit
This one was simply inked through with Black Soot distress ink onto some backing paper:
This one used some texture paste onto a sheet of Drummond Tartan and then I used some rub on wax over the top of the texture paste:
Wall hanging with flitter glu (from Indigo Blu) through the mask and gilding flakes applied
Another simply inked through with Black Soot and Vintage Photo distress inks:
This one is mount board cut using a Bigz die and then I inked up the mask with versamark and ran it through the Grand Calibur to transfer the ink and then applied embossing powder ans heated:
Mask drawn around and cut out of white cardstock:
Next up we have the fairies (some of which could also be Angels – hence my second card) from the FunkyFairy kit
Guilding flakes applied to Flitter Glu that was spread through(left side) and around (right side) the masks
Then we have 2 cards made with Leafy Wreath from the Wreath Kit
Mask embossed using the Grand Calibur then placed on the card to ink around:
Ink onto mask and pass through the Grand Calibur to transfer the ink:
Last but not least I used the Splodgy mask from the Texturizer Kit
This one was made by inking through the mask with different blues in the distress inks, turning the mask each time before applying the next colour
This one was made to show that you can use the masks with digital artwork too – the invite was made in Serif Craft Artist and then the water was created with versamark inked through the mask and clear embossing powder:
First of all I would like to wish all my blog followers a Merry Christmas and a very happy new year.
I would also like to take a moment to remember absent friends and family and send a big hug out to any other people who are missing loved ones (for whatever reason) at this time of year.
It is inspiration Monday over at Crafty Bloggers Network and I have something a little different for you today, it is a star that I made using the Docrafts digital designer template and then I Tangled it 🙂
Why not hop over and see what the other members of the design team have for you.
