New Tutorial Page!

Hi all,

I just wanted to share that I have a new Tutorials page on my blog. You can find it HERE.

I have a lot of tutorials I have created through my time running Crafting Ireland along with tutorials I have made for on this blog. I have been looking for a way to collate them all easily and streamline them easily for presenting. I recently decided I would use Guidecentral to do this. It allows me to have all of my tutorials in one place, and share them with an even wider audience. I have stated the process of uploading them, and streamlining them. In the meantime you can visit my tutorials page by clicking HERE or on the images below. I also have a link on my sidebar.

I hope you enjoy it!

Thanks for looking,

Wedding Shadow Box

ccI created this piece for the Craftycutting design team using one of the new MDF shadow box frames that you can find here. I decorated it for a wedding gift, painting it a light grey and stamping a slightly darker grey damask pattern on it. I then die cut some houses and church dies. I layered these up and adhered them with dimension into the shadow box. I added some wink of stella glitter pen onto the church to make it sparkle and shine and stand out. I added a simple banner sentiment on the top right.

I think this would be a lovely gift for a wedding present, or anniversary. The shadow boxes are super strong and sturdy and have a stand so they stand up by themselves. I think it is a lovely way to create a handmade gift.pic 2

Birthday Blog Candy!

Hi all,

So today is my birthday but I thought I would celebrate by offering you a gift! I have a extra die set of the Critters in the Snow by Lawn Fawn thanks to Make the Day Special Stamp Store. If you have not come across the store before you should check it out, they stock all of the American supplies that we love over here but that we find hard to get our hands on. I apologise in advance for enabling you!!

I have the Critters in the Snow set and got the matching die set from Make the Day Special for Christmas. I really love the set and I didn’t want to have to wait until next Christmas to get to use it again. So I took it out and had a look. I decided that the penguins would go to the beach. And that the deer would go for a run in the park….

Critters in the Snow Lawn Cuts















For the penguin card I started by colouring and die cutting some of the critters. I turned the igloo into a sand castle! I created sand by tearing cordinations paper and created the sea by using an on the edge die. The sun I made from a scallop and a circle die.

pic 1 pic 2 For the deer I hand cut a grassy hill and a grassy strip and die cut a fence. I coloured the reindeer all brown and left him very textured to give a fur effect.pic 3 For the penguin card I also die cut some clouds from a speech bubble die and cut it in half to make them flat bottomed clouds. I cut some tiny circles and made them little pebbles on the beach. I made a little star into a star fish. I love how cute and summery this turned out. I needed a card like this with all of the bad weather we have been having lately!pic 4 For the deer I posed him jumping over the fence looking happy and merry to be frolicking through the green fields with beautiful blue sky’s. Again I am suffering nice weather withdrawal I think!pic 5 So for the giveaway I have the die set you see in the picture below and a mixed bag of some of my favourite colour flowers too. I am really willing summer and sunshine along here! To be in with a chance to win enter your details on the Inlinkz below the image. The closing date is the 10th of April. Good luck and have a slice of cake on me!!pic 6
