Pic’N’Mix Christmas & Bruises!


Hi! How are you all?

I’m over on Make The Day Special Stamp Store today- sharing this card- a Christmas card using mostly non-Christmas supplies.

The dies for ‘joy’ are Louie’s ABC’s which are perfect

and the paper is ‘Snow Days’ by Lawn Fawn

I have used a whole bunch of other supplies from Lawn Fawn- Forest Border die, Critters in the Snow (snowflakes), Year Four (the musical notes).

It’s a quickie post as I’m trying to finish some work. I’m also recovering from hurting myself twice in one day!

The first? Getting into the shower to try and fix a problem. The bottom of the bath was wet as someone had already been in there.

One foot in, one leg outside the bath. One foot went left, I banged myself against the bath and did a fairly inelegant split. I have a cracking bruise to show for it.

Fast forward to the evening. I was helping Will with some maths homework on the computer.

One of the chairs was slightly broken by the kids. I wasn’t looking when I chose a chair to sit on.

You can tell what’s about to come next can’t you…

Crack, split, and down I went.

I was shocked more than hurt.

Will was really upset- and worried.

So two bruises in one day.


Well, see you tomorrow with a fun bit of stencilling,

Cutting Edge Blog Hop!

I was having a little surf across the internet and came across this event

Pretty Pink Posh are sponsoring the event here along with a ton of sponsors

The idea? You post a brand new project using die-cuts and everyone gets to blog hop and be inspired. You can win for joining in and win for commenting across at least 5 blogs. I do love die-cutting and have some super simple projects to show you
1st technique – stacked diecuts creating a shadow effect ( forgive me that’s it’s Christmas related 😉) it’s using the Christmas sayings set from XCut

2nd technique- inlaid die-cutting. All the fun of dimension but in one layer. These dies are from XCut again

and the 3rd simple technique; using the negative space from die-cutting to create a simple and subtle shaker card by incorporating vellum. I’ve used one of my favourites, the Louie’s ABC’s dies from Lawn Fawn

Rather shockingly, there’s no stamping- but a whole lotta die-cutting instead!
Do go and join in here you’ve until tomorrow night to link up!

If you love dies and want to win over £50 worth ( incl some stamps) head over to this post and comment to win!
