Trick or Treat

I decided to use one of the Gemini Favour Box dies from Crafter's Companion to create a Trick or Treat box for Halloween.


I used the Gift Carton box, it is the easiest one to make up and I thought it would be perfect to pop a few treats in.  I don't make much for Halloween, we don't get many children round our way, I don't think there are enough houses to make it worth while for them, but I always make a couple just in case.


It's raining again this morning, I'm getting a bit fed up with it now - what is it like where you are?

Christmas Sparkle

This is another of the cards that I created for the latest Hunkydory Cardmaking Collection - Issue 9. The collection contains a 68 page magazine, two foiled and die-cut card collections, 3 seasonal dies, an A6 door embossing folder and 14 co-ordinating image and sentiment stamps.  I was asked to create two sets of cards, one using the dies and Little Robin Redbreast card collection and the other using the door embossing folder - I have to admit that I found the embossing folder cards quite a challenge as I don't often use embossing folders.


I used the door embossing folder to create this card along with the wreath die and papers, cardstock and a sentiment from the Seasonal Style card collection
