I made these:
I figured that if I didn't sell them at the craft fair, I could use them myself!
Not even sure of what type to make when I started, I decided to give the alcohol inks and distress inks on a non-stick mat method a try. Routing through my christmas craft boxes, I found some unused and admitedly unloved, peel-offs and stuck them down onto some cardboard before dragging it through the ink & sprayed water mix.
Whilst they were drying, I found some old christmas shaped cards that I had never known what to do with and decided to use them. They were made from a dull silver and gold card which wasn't that appealing so I covered them up...
...with christmas collagey bits from my stash. After they had dried, I re-cut around the shape of the card.
This was the third one I made:
For this one I added some glitter and gemstones to the embossed snowflake that was already on the card. I then attached my cardboard embellishment on to it, directly in the centre so that it could follow the existing snowflake pattern.

I've also been doing some other crafts that I haven't yet photographed...
...apart from some more of these blocks that were popular at my last craft fair:
This time I've added christmas messages to my blocks. They will also make nice decorations for my home, if they don't all sell (I almost hope they don't, I quite like these!...)
Thanks for looking today, I appreciate it.
See you soon,
