About the Artist

My photo
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

That Craft Place Challenge Blog - 22nd Challenge - Christmas/Anything Goes

Hello everyone Challenge 22 is live over at That Craft Place Challenge Blog.  Our theme for this challenge is

Christmas/Anything Goes

For my DT project for this Challenge I decided to alter a paperbag.  I used TH DI in Weathered Wood and edged all of the outer edges on the bag itself.  I then added some white burlap and some fringe trim from my stash and took the first page from the G45 Christmas Emporium as my main image.  I love G45 papers but never want to cut them lol so I thought for this project it would be the perfect time to used one of these sheets.  I distressed it with my TH distress tool and again edged it with the Weathered Wood.  I punched some paper snowflakes using a snowflake punch and covered them in a mixture of stickles Diamond and also some crackle accents (all available from That Craft Place). I then created a cream seambinding bow to the bottom left corner and just had to add a chunk of bling with an acrylic bauble.  In the bottom right hand corner I created a cluster of flowers (from my stash) around a gorgeous die cut heart which started out in life as white but again I used some TH DI in Vintage Photo to make it tone in with the kraft colour of the bag.  I then tied one of the gorgeous brass keys into a seambinding bow (both available at TCP).  
Just for a bit more texture I added some snowflake effect dust to the Christmas tree and some more spots of Stickles just for a little glint here and there.

I hope you like my project for this Challenge.  This bag will be housing my Mum's Christmas gifts this year and I am sure she will love it.
