Hello blogging friends,well its a bit late but wanted to wish you all a very happy new year.

I really hope the year will be filled with love,health and happiness for you all.

I have been away for a while,due to family issues,and I have also stepped down from That Craft place.  I have loved every minute of my time with the girls and it has been one of the happiest times of my crafty life.
I just want to wish Lisa all the best for 2016 she really does deserve it as her and Danny work so hard.

Creativity left me for months and months its been nearly a year since I made a card,but I did finally get my sewing machine out and I have made these 2 bags from scraps of material.

So hope you like them,just hope my mo jo lasts as hate feeling like this.

The tags I made myself using craft artist and printed the images onto canvas.

once again thanks for sticking by me massive hugs Cherylx

Morning guys,it's time for mixed media time over at That Craft Place

This week I have made a book,using the fab new graphic 45 papers called world's fair.

I have added lots of pockets,and place to add photos,and writing. I adore these papers,they are so so lush shame to cut them up,but they are brilliant for books as that way you can use both side.

Here I have made a page,so I can add,photos this of course is my wee,grand daughter Lucie.

This is the front of the book. I have fussy cut the papers,to add dimension. Then added some wee gems,I have used ribbon this time to,put the book together which I cut from my cricut.  The corner is painted with some blue gilding wax.  The frame I got from one of my lovely DT buddies,along with the corner,one the oval one I painted black,then added some tiny beads which are for nail art. I cut an image of the lady,and added it to the frame using silicone glue.  Then added few flowers etc then covered the whole book in,modge podge matt,I gave the book,3 coats so it protects,the cover and back.

Well that is my post for today hope you like, my creation,and we would love to have you join in the mixed media team over at That Craft place which is HERE

All paints,and papers available at That Craft Place.

Have a lovely day,hugs Cherylxxxxxxxx

Papers are graphic 45 available from That Craft Place.

For my exploding box,I have used,papers from my stash then cut pieces from graphic 45 papers,added some keys.then added crackle paint and brushed over it with some gold paint. I have cut out my box using the cricut mini,books cartridge.

Back at TCP

Hi guys,well I am back on the team at TCP,. I am rather chuffed I must admit I am on the mixed media team and the theme will always be anything goes.

So I Made this,for this weeks challenge,
This is an old wooden box I had,so I took,the sewing MDF embellishments from TCP and added them to the lid of the box. I also used a stencil paste,etc and took some sprays,and here we have the finished,lid.

For the inside i decided to,use some canvas printed onto,took a frame from TCP and digitally added it to the layout,then same for the inside,and just laid,the rest of the embellishments inside the box.

It says,share your creativity with TCP and being creative is not a hobby its a way of life.

So if you would like to play along at TCP please pop over HERE to join in.

I would also like to thank you all for being patient with me but my wee granddaughter has not been well. She had thrush,and she has also been fitted with a harness as her hips are not,aligned correctly due to the difficult birth. So I have been popping over to my daughters every day helping out and with this heat the poor wee,angel is really struggling,bless her heart.

Just wanted to show,you this shot I took of a woodpecker out of my craft room window.
