Christmas crafts

Hi!

I just finished my Christmas cards (or at least a few of them) for this year. I wanted to go for a somewhat simple card, yet with many parts to it, so I used a few different dies and two embossing folders. The dies I used in the Christmas cards are from Sue Wilson (the greeting, the holly leaves, and the reindeer), and Frantic Stamper (the birch panel).

 

Also, I’ve been making crochet snowflakes using this awesome pattern from Snowcatcher. Scroll down to the purple snowflake to get the pattern for this particular snowflake.

To get the blocking template for the snowflake, print out the image above, or visit this blog, for example. (Or just google “crochet blocking template”.)

Thanks for viewing!

A birthday card

Hi!

My mother’s 60th birthday is just around the corner, and I decided to make her a somewhat fancy birthday card. For this card, I used several of Sue Wilson’s die cuts (from Creative Expressions). If you want to see the (almost) full list of supplies used in this card, scroll further down.

Also, some future posts in this blog will include: Halloween (card) crafts, Christmas cards, and the long-awaited pattern for my Remix/ruffle booties. I’ve also tried to make a new and improved/different pattern for the strip-method crochet rose, so stay tuned and hopefully I’ll have something to show you soon.

Here are some (sadly bad) photos of my mom’s birthday card. As the days are getting darker, I find it difficult to find a good light source for indoor photos. Please leave a comment, if you know of any good extra-light photography equipment, LED-lights for example. Thanks!
