Paper Pros - October Challenge - Holiday Cards

Hello, I am here for this months Paper Pros challenge.  

This months theme was Holiday Cards and I decided it was about time I played with the Karen Burniston House & Fence Pop up.  I teamed it up with a few other elements from the Holiday Charms.  (I will link below)


The main house and the ingenious Floating floor all comes
in one set and this Floating Floor can be used to stage so many elements and of course they can be anything, not only Karen Burniston Dies.

I love all the elements in this set, the windows and shutters, the wreaths, tiny heart and look at those cobble stones!  I used the stencil feature to decorate the house and decided to keep it all quite pale with 
pops of green and red.






The house looks adorable crafted as Halloween and
also as every day.  I will pop a couple of my favourite cards below made
by Karen Burniston using her die sets.

So gorgeous as a summery house!



And so much spooky fun on this version!

Some of the team are not able to join in today but why not stop by their
blog anyway as I am sure there is always beautiful
stuff posted.










    

Sleeping squirrel Needle Felt

Yesterday I made my first sleepy squirrel.  I followed a video tutorial by serafina fibre art.   Mid way through project I hit the "oh no it's rubbish" stage which most of my felties reach.   But I carried on and pleased to say I was happy at the end.

I love this craft.  Just need more time!   It's very frustrating ATM. 

    

Beautiful Butterflies

Today I'm here with last weeks Create and Take.   I used the Elizabeth Craft Designs Bugs and Butterflies clear stamp set and the Marianne Designs Heart Embossing Folder. 

All items from Crafts U Love

    

Bargains on eBay

Pls check out my eBay link on side of blog for some poppy stamps bargains.

    

Felted Woodland Whimsies (photo heavy)

You may recall I started needle felting in December, just after Christmas and its fair to say I have fallen head over heels for this new to me craft.

I have been having an amazing time playing, learning and generally collecting and loving the fluff!

Below I will show off some of my recent makes and I warn you there might be quiet a few!  This is not replacing my Paper Crafting, and I do hope I don't loose too many likers, but hey, I might gain a few too.

Anyone want to get into Needle Felting I would Highly recommend a company called The Makerss at www.themakerss.co.uk    Their range of Wool and accessories are fabulous, they are friendly and fast.  I only share this information as when you start a new hobby it can be hard to know where to start, and yes you make the wrong choices along the way, but I truely think with The Makerss you will miss this out and just get the best.

Type in CAZ10 for a super duper 10% off, this is my own "Friends of Caz" code, how lucky am I? :)  


Bandit is my first Blue Tit that I made.  This was made
using my Monthly Kit from the Makerss.  This kit includes the
legs, eyes, wool and instructions the link is HERE


Here is a mouse that I called Mrs Jangles, she was coming on holiday
with us to Spain and I also made her using a monthly kit :)


This mouse was a present made for a work colleagues birthday.
It was very hard to part with this little guy!.


This is Bobbin, my first Robin, made using my 
Monthly Makers Kit.


Chip, my cookie loving mouse.  These mice are
super addictive to make and over the summer holidays I had
2 friends round over different days to make their very first creations.  It
was great fun and I would love to improve and eventually teach this locally.


This was my first Fairy that I made in Spain, 
again using the instructions and kit from The Makerss.



Fig was made in Spain and sat under the Fig Tree.

Three little mice!  Part of the fun is working out what
props you are going to give them.


This was Septembers kit!  I am so excited for next 
months kit as it is Hedgehogs and Toadstools.


In Spain I mas missing Milo, so I made a mini one!


Mr Jangles Turned up (was made) in Spain too!


This is the Professor that I made for my Uncle.


And lastly a pug that I made for a work colleague who was leaving :(

There are more, but I thought I had better stop.

Right, its a busy day today, my day off, but much to do.
Create and Take card needs to be made now.
