Merry Christmas

 I wanted to wish you all a Happy Christmas and good health and happiness in the New Year.

I also made  this card to wish the residents and staff of Erskine a very Merry Christmas.

For those who don't know, Erskine is a facility in Erskine, Scotland, that provides long term medical care for veterans of the British Armed Forces.

Have a wonderful time.

Love & hugs

Sympathy cards

A difficult time for anyone is losing a loved one. I've sadly had the need to make a few sympathy cards

This one is gently coloured with Forrest Moss distress ink. I made this card using an embossing folder and embellished it with a small cross.

These two sympathy cards are similar, using almost the same.

Quick, C&S cards.
Thanks for dropping by, let me know what you think.
I've a few more projects  I created that I'll share soon.

I'm still here and crafting again.

I haven't been around much lately, sorry. My old dad has had a lot of health issues in the past few years so my priorities have been with him while he needed so much help and support. Sadly I lost dad at the end of July. My heart was broken and I haven't been into creating for a long, long time. However I am determined to get back on the proverbial horse, and seriously look for my mojo. 

I wanted to share a card I finished making today and small up-cycled jam jar to package a wee gift of some sweets for a work colleague who is starting a new job. 

The wee heart dangler here, 
I made a while ago (Feb /March 2014) using home made paper clay and silicone moulds. I used a light weight wall filler instead of joint compound which I wasn't sure about here in UK. I made a huge lump of clay at the time and had fun playing with this. Check out this post from my blog archives, http://alexandras-art-n-papercraft.blogspot.com/2014/02/paper-clay-play.html
You can find the recipe on the website of Jonni Good if you want it here;

I have a few more things I have created but never posted yet and I'll be back to share them with you soon.

Thanks for popping by.

Civil wedding card

Hi, I'm back again, it's been a while, but it's nice to be here again.

Life sometimes gets so busy I forget to keep this sad little blog going. However I have managed to squeeze in a bit of creativity occasionally.

I have a few photos of projects and things I have made since my last post.

Last summer I was asked to make a special card for a friend's brothers wedding.

Here is the card I created.

This was the first civil wedding card I've made, I created it mainly using dies and paper folding.

Thanks again for visiting and feel free to leave a comment if you want.
I appreciate hearing what you think. TTFN
