Finally I have done this CJ (only a week late!) I just found it REALLY hard to do Christmas in March and was totally uninspired! Well yesterday I went to see my pal Gilly who is a font of fab ideas, with a vague idea about a pop-uppy-kinda-thingumy-jig! As luck would have it she had just done a "class" on pop-ups so in about 2 minutes was able to show me what to do! So here is my first ever pop-up....I used distress inks and cosmic shimmers to make the green card and then stamped the Christmas tree on to that. Then I used pastels and glittery paint and blue glimmer mists to do the backgroundy bit!
I quite enjoyed this...lots of thinking required and quite plain but I do like the overall effect! Hope the owner of the CJ does too 'cos the other entries are waaaaay more arty!
I am a married mother of four who took up papercrafting about 4 years ago. I started with ATCs and Inchies and as I got braver I started to Scrapbook too! My current faves are stamping CJs (oooo just love 'em), scrapbooking and making mini books with the shedloads of photos I take!As you can imagine I have to fit it round the children and also numerous pets so blogging can be a bit hit and miss! Generally I blog better in school holidays when I am not at work as a TA. Thank you for popping by and I hope you like what you see here!
