Anything Goes - Polkadoodles Crafting

Happy Friday Everyone!
Here today for 
*Anything Goes*

Today I am sharing with you a lovely Christmas Ice Skate
I cut this out on my portrait using a lovely file from Sandra that you can find here
I decorated it up using the lovely new collection from Polkadoodles
Festive Christmas
How utterly adorable is the snowman he had to play a part! (or two)
I added in some feathers they seem to be playing a big part in my Christmas makes this year
I added some lace and tinsel and some twine for the laces into some little eyelets

Adding lots of pearls and some red liquid pearls and a few blingy silver flowers.
The paper, tag, snowman, holly, hearts , candycanes leaves and flowers are all from the collection 
What food do you get when you cross Frosty with a polar bear?
A "brrr" - "grrr"!

Star Hanger - Polkadoodles Crafting

I am just adoring making Christmas Crafts this year
This wonderful new collection is an absolute must have

This time I have made a star hanger
It was cut on my portrait
and you can find the file at Sandra's right here ( I shop here loads if your a follower you probably would of realised that - I love all of her files)
Now this one came as a star card but since we were trying to steer away from the card route I made it into a hanging star using a slice of matching ribbon
I decorated using the wonderful new collection 
that paper is lush!
Don't ask me why I added feathers, but they were pretty and white and they seemed to work
** Scatty tip for you - Do not use feathers when its boiling hot and you have your fan going**
I finished of using liquid pearls

Snowman Lantern - Polkadoodles Crafting

Oh I absolutly adored making this lantern
I've literally fallen in love with the cute little snowman
Cut on my portrait but this is such an easy file you could very easily cut by hand if you have not got a cutting machine
You can shop for the lovely lantern here
Now I have made mine with a box in the middle but you can easily make without attaching to send flat pack

I cut the lantern in Kraft card and used the new collection to decorate
Festive Christmas
using vellum on the windows
I used lots of layered up flowers
and to finish off
A few snowballs
and a little battery candle

Anything Goes - Polkadoodle Crafting

Happy Friday Everyone!
Here today for 
*Anything Goes*
Using one of my favourite ever collections
 Winnie Starfish and Sandcastles 
I have made a little (large) gift shop , stocked full of lovely seaside tat treasures. The Brick paper is from 
Work & Play 2 
and the wooden paper is from the
Distressed Wood paper collection

The team followed the theme of *Oh I do like to be beside the sea side * We don't live that far from the seaside so when our Granddaughter comes to stay we often visit and although she loves the sea and playing on the sand we often leave Grandad with his ice cream and hit the shops and we buy all sorts of rubbish that we will never use haha but her utter most favourite is shells we have spent a good few hours this year hunting the shops for shells and we have brought some beautys!

The shop was cut on my portrait using one of Sandra's lovely files that you can find here
Once I got going I found it pretty easy to put together
The table also from Sandra's that I altered slightly to fit can be found here

Once inside you find shop keeper Winnie selling an array of seaside treasures
Downstairs curtains were a snip of lace with some very thin nautical coloured ribbon and upstairs lace again with some stripey ribbon
So if your in need of sun glasses , sun cream maybe a camera or a beach ball or bag be sure to stop by Little Miss Crabbypants Boutique

To construct the hangers on the wall to hold clothing etc I simply used straws
My bucket to hold the umbrella's etc was a mouthwash lid
and several satsumas were consumed for the orange netting

Thank you for stopping by

If they were by the bay, they'd be bagels!
