The Twelve Days of Christmas ~ Day 9 ~ eclectic Paperie 'Tim Holtz Paper Stash and Alterations
Hi everyone! it's Day 9, and my turn to create something for The eclectic Paperie '12 Days of Christmas celebrations'. There is certainly something to celebrate today, as Kim has 25% discount on all Tim Holtz Paper Stash, Alterations and Texture Fades ! For this Christmas wall hanging I've used Tim's 12x12 Merriment Papers and the cutest Alterations dies, Packages and Bows and Christmas Bells. The foundation for this hanging is a chipboard circle I picked up at the NEC Craft Show earlier this year. I covered it with paper from the Merriment Stash, so many gorgeous ones to choose from but the distressed dots won out. I'm dotty about dots ! The picture is also in the Merriment pack, it's a Santa circa, maybe, late 1950's or 60's, looks like he might have just arrived in town, oh the good old days ! I've posted some pictures of the process involved in making this hanging over on the eP blog, which will be appearing later. We have the fabulous Miyake guesting at the moment, so why not pop over and see what she's been up to. If you want to take advantage of the 25% discount Kim is offering on Tim's paper, Aterations and Texture Fades, use the discount code 12DAYS9 when you visit the eclectic Paperie shop and purchase any of these products today. So for now, Happy Christmas Crafting ! x
Ever since I can remember, I have enjoyed dabbling with a variety of crafts. My earliest crafting memories are of spending hours doing 'corking' or 'french Knitting' at my grandmother's house, using a wooden cotton reel with four short nails tapped into it and endless tangles of coloured wool. I also have fond memories of those little knitting kits, that came in a container that was made of the same material as an egg box. Happy days!
My interests now, range from textiles to ceramics, with knitting,felting, sewing and card making in between. I've reached a stage where I feel I know a little about a lot of different crafts. I'm still striving to become a master of at least one!
My favourite craft adventures at the moment, include digital collaging using PSP Elements, rubber stamp making with my imagpac kit and getting to know my Craft Robo.
When not crafting or looking after my family, I work part-time as a teacher, supporting visually impaired children.I also teach ceramics in a primary school and do occasional art residencies in mainly primary and special schools. Phew! I didn't realise I was that busy.
