I just love crafting, the messier the better. Have been crafting all my days but in the last 16 years have been doing more and more. My obsession began with making cards and from there I have tried many different forms of crafting. Great fan of Tim_Holtz love all his products would love to own them all one day. Graphic 45 is another must have for me and again would love to have it all. And then there is Prima well what can a girl say, just simply stunningly beautiful. Really enjoying the vintage, shabby chic and steampunk styles which are very much in vogue at the minute. Love Lace and Pearl trim, you might be seeing a fair bit of it all on here. xx Please keep calling past and enjoy my crafting journey with me. Great Big Huge Hugs Becca xxx

Rhedd and Rosie's Anything Goes Challenge Blog - Challenge #21 - Use Old Stash

It is time again for another new Challenge over at Rhedd and Rosie's Challenge Blog.  
Our winner has been chosen from our previous challenge, congratulations, what a wonderful prize and I am sure you will have lots of fun playing with it.

This fortnight our theme is 'Use Old Stash'  I pulled out some old Christmas Papers from my cupboard and created this card 

I used a 6.5"x6.5" pearlescent cardstock base and layered on some blue Christmas paper from a Dovecraft collection I have had for at least the last 3 years and also cut a strip of Christmas text from the same collection and added it onto the right hand side..  I took an snowflake punch (cause we all have them tucked away in our stash) and punched out a mixture of pearlescent paper and blue Christmas paper and stuck them onto swirls of pearlescent cardstock created using a Cheery Lynn die. I stamped out the sentiment Merry Christmas, which is a rubber stamp I seem to have had in my stash right from the start of my crafting back in 2004, onto the same pearlescent cardstock using brown Stazon and popped it up using foam squares.  I added some clear rhinestones and some diamond Stickles to the snowflakes and then added some cream ruffle trim topped off with some iridescent flat back pearl string just for that added bit of bling.

The prize for this challenge is sponsored by the wonderful teamie Moira
