Football easel card

Hi all
This card is a similar design to one I've done previously. It's a triple easel card and so easy to do.
 I made the 3 easel cards using 3 different sized Scalloped Circle Nestabilities. I then cut 3 circles from the plain circle Nesties. The football emblem is of our local team, Gillingham and the football was found on Google images. I finished off using die cut letters and numbers and a button with ribbon. Some glitter was added around the football emblem as I really cannot do without any glitter as you will know from previous posts!!!
This card went down very well with its recipient!!

2013 Calendar

Hi all
Hope you had a wonderful Christmas and received lots of lovely goodies from Santa!
Unfortunately I have to go to work later today so thought I would do a quick post before I go of an item I made before Christmas. I havent been able to post lately as everything I was making was either special cards or gifts! I will get some posts scheduled over the next few days so you can see that I havent been sitting around doing nothing!!
This item is a calendar I made using stamps from Dimension Stamps. It did take a while to do as I wanted to put the days on as well as the date but you can make these in whichever design you want.
For the front cover I used a Memory Box corner die and the numbers from Dimension Stamps. As usual I glittered around the edges of the numbers.


For each page I mounted the corners using 3d pads and again glittered around the month and the edge of the dates. The pics were all coloured in using Promarkers. Because the 3d pads made the finished article quite large I used ribbon to hold it all together but you can use book rings or even binders.
I hope you like this idea, please visit again to see other goodies I've been making.
Happy crafting

Advent calendar

Good evening everyone, hope you are all well.
I have been very busy lately with lots of crafty xmas presents etc. Some I will be able to post here but others will have to wait until after the fat man has been!!!
Today I have decided to show the advent calendar I have made my 2 children. I wanted to make them 1 each but just ran out of time so luckily the drawers are big enough for 2 goodies so they are sharing!!

Front view 
Side view 
Finished item with lovely goodies!!
I made all the individual boxes and once stuck together I then decorated the sides with patterned paper which I think is from a 'Me to You' Papermania pack. I added some images which I coloured with Promarkers and glittered up. Peel offs were added to the boxes along with brads and I finished off by making an easel card to sit on the top. I used a LOTV topper for this card, a memory box snowflake corner and some snowflakes. More glitter was added!!
Sorry for the delay in adding pics lately but for some reason my pics arn't transferring from my IPhone and then I cant upload pics using Internet Explorer. Been a bit of a nightmare!
Hope you like this post and will come back again soon.
