Free on Friday 16th November 2018 - Christmas Stocking

I have a Christmas Stocking for you today.  I hope you have fun with it.  Please leave me some love below before you go and join me next week x

Guest Designer at Craft's Dreamy - tabbed folder

I was delighted to win the September Challenge at Crafts Dreamy and the opportunity to be a Guest Designer.  I decided to do a folder like the Eileen Hull Sizzix die.  I wanted it to be bigger so I designed one myself and got as far as finishing the scoring, when I decided it didn't look right.  For one reason I had tried distressing some 12 x 12 patterned paper which I wasn't keen on and I wasn't keen on the result! The second reason my measurements were wrong so muttering to myself I binned it.  I shelved that idea for the moment and thought I would make a passport sized folder with tabs.  I happily played with my paints and was pleased with the result, but then I thought I hadn't checked the colour scheme I was meant to be doing.  Of course when I checked it my folder didn't fit.  More muttering on my own stupidity :)  I started a new one and happy days :)  I cut all the pages out with my Scan n Cut.

The pages are patterned (on one side) Kraft paper

The cover is embossed and I have used Creative Expressions gilding wax polish.

I used Crawford and Black acrylic metallic paints on the pages.

Passport size folder in Pinks and Yellows

This is my first tabbed folder, I designed it with the help of a template I found online.  I changed the size so it is 5.75 inches tall by just over 4 inches. 

See you soon x

Mists of Mellow Fruitfullness

John Keats wrote this poem about the season of mists and mellow fruitfulness.  Autumn is such a colourful season which lasts as long as the leaves are still there. I took some photographs of oak leaves last week.  I picked them up and placed them on a nearby wall to take the photographs, trying not lose the raindrops.

I am entering this into the October challenge at Crafts Dreamy
See you soon x

Free on Friday 9th November 2018

I thought I'd start off the countdown to Christmas with a small card to use as an embellishment.  I have made it using 3 different vintage pictures.  I gave it two different colour edges.  I hope you like them because I am thinking of doing a series for you :)

Free on Friday 2nd November 2018

A warm welcome to Free on Friday at Crafting With Jack.  I hope you all had a great Halloween, the shops are filling the shelves with Christmas goodies.  I have some Tuck cards for you.  I have missed the Canadian Thanksgiving (8th October), but maybe you could save these for next year!  The American Thanksgiving is on the 22nd November.  The cards on the Tuck site are usually of good quality and very often don't need anything doing to them.  

This Thanksgiving card was a bit tatty, but I found two different ones and put them together on the computer:

This is the combined version:

The next ones are lovely:

Finally Thanksgiving is all about being thankful:

I hope you enjoyed this selection, let me know and leave me some love in the comments.. Don't click "I am not a robot" as it is not normally necessary.  See you soon x
