Hello there Peeps
It is still Tuesday so I can still share my latest layout with you all - my last of 2013! Well, it is my Blog and so my Rulz anyhoo!
Here it is........
I took this photo on 19 December 2010. Fortunately I had already printed is as my relatively new printer is now kaput!!! Not happy as it is only just out of warranty. Apparently it needs a new printer head - Cost £25 + £7 postage. Cost of new printer - £40 ish. Guess I wont be replacing the head as I got through more ink in its short lifetime than any other printer I know of! Hurrumpf! So I guess I shall be using up some of my plethora of photos already printed in 2014 until I buy a new printer. I got the idea for the title from a comment left on FB when this photo was on there by LLJ - "You have your own Narnia!".
For this layout I used some Bazzill card with some Grace Taylor paper for the spotty and punched the corners with a MS punch and backed with white card from the Snippets box. The red card is Bazzill again punched with the MS PATP snowflake punch and yes, I did punch the sides also but then covered it with paper - doh! I punched some black card Snippets with another MS punch and attached top and bottom of the green Kaisercraft paper with a small strip of white cardstock.
The snowflakes are all cut using Spellbinders dies using Snippets. I decided to add a mixture of red buttons to the centres. The top right have some TH chit chat stickers.
The letters are all cut from Snippets of card on my Cricut using Candy fonts and then stickled over.
I actually dug some washi tape out. I have several different ones but don't use them very often.
My aim now for 2014 (I don't make Resolutions as they are most often broken) is to not just stuff my Snippets away in the Snippets draw but to make a couple of cards using them. So here are two....
The coloured panels are made from using the papers out of the bottom of my spray box. No idea exactly what created them but they have a fabulous shimmer. I stamped the cards using two TH Grunge stamps, the HB stamp was a present from Kim when she visited. The flourishes are all Tonic and are attached using spray adhesive and then covered with black stickles.
Here you can see a little of the shimmer of the coloured panel.
And a TY card with a handmade tent card and more of the Tonic die set and a TY stamp (so old no maker on it)!
And another view which hopefully shows you some of the shimmer.
I shall be popping these over to the Snippets Playground. I believe there is some Baileys on offer over there (other drinks are available).
It just leaves me to say Thank You for calling by now and throughout 2013. It has been a pleasure reading your comments and returning the call. Here's to friends new and old that I have "met" during 2013 and I am looking forward to seeing what the Blogging World brings in 2014.
May I wish you all a Happy and Crafty New Year!
