Dear Santa - Polkadoodles Crafting

Another File I had wanted to try for ages the Typewriter,
It looked so complicated but after the Windmill (see last post)it can only be a breeze
And it really was I loved making it - After the main pieces were made it all slotted into place, It did not take very long at all and I was so pleased with how it turned out

I cut it on my portrait and you can find the typewriter file here at the lovely Sandra's store , the envelope you also get with the file (you just need to decorate) , including step by step very helpful instructions

I used a lovely Marine Blue cardstock from Papermill direct
Perfect for my project at 240gsm

I used such a mixture from Polkadoodles collections which is so fab how they work so well with each other 
You can always find something new - I still do now, after being on the Polkadoodles DT for a few years now it amazes me how much is crammed into the collections , when ever I re-visit I find lots that I have missed

The lovely paper that has been typed on , is one of my favourites that is from the new Winnie Winterland. I have also used the following collections in my project

This really did remind me of being a child owning a typewriter I really wanted to whack the return carriage key lever and hear the ding at the end of the line

Winnie & The Gingers visit Holland

Happy Saturday to you all

Have you all spotted the new releases over at Polkadoodles?
&
Baked With Love
Have you all spotted the great bargain?
pop here to see how you can save a whopping 50% on baked With Love
But hurry the offer wont be about forever.....

Today I am sharing with you the biggest project of the year , I had wanted to make this windmill for ages but was dithering about the decoration. We have been so spoilt this year over at Polkadoodles with Nikky's lovely new collections and when Winnie Winterland & Baked with love were released I knew exactly what I wanted to use.
I was a bit nervy as it looked very complicated , but big girls knickers pulled up , talking softly to my portrait telling him he is going to have his work cut out (haha cut out!)

This project took me over three days to complete, It is definatly not to be rushed

I downloaded the Windmill File - I read through the instructions whoaaaa not as hard as I first imagined!
I made a couple of alterations as the original the bottom opens (where you can hide a gift - very clever)
But I wanted mine more of a decoration so I ommitted that part and mine stands flat 
These are the links to the cutting files from lovely Sandra that I have used
Windmill
Santas Sack Sleigh
Ski's & SledgeWinterset

The windmill is built in 3 main pieces that you then fit together,  It really is good fun building each piece and then seeing it all come alive at the end.
I made the main structures using Kraft card so it would be nice and sturdy
I so loved decorating it up, I tried making each piece as special as I could
I used fluffy stuff for snow on the fences, ski's  and sled
When my project was complete I gave it a sprinkling of flower soft
How cute is the little door - if you look carefully it even has a little door mat

I dressed the windows with Lace & Ribbons

I mainly used 
&
Baked With Love
to decorate but borrowed the Christmas tree's and the wreath from 
Frosted Winter

For the sails I used a fancy die.
Here is a little stream taken of the different angles

Red/ Green Christmas or Anything Goes - Polkadoodles Crafting

Happy Friday Everyone!
Here today for 
*Anything Goes*

I have used the wonderful Winnie Winterland collection to make my two cards. I have also used the lovely die set Ribbon gift frame that you can find here 
This collection is wonderful I am using it so much
I also think it worked perfectly along with the Die set
I added a little ribbon to them and mixed in some of the paper flowers from the collection with some others that were in my Christmas box
I used some lovely pearl card tock which is nice and heavy , leaving a boarder around the card , it really complimemts the images 

I added a little bow that you can find in the collection and attached a little metal bell

Inside to match

To the red card I added a sprig of Holly, another of the bows this time with a metal jingly ball
Just look how lovely that red paper is!


Inside to match

Pergola Card - Polkadoodles Crafting

Happy Thursday to you all
I have had tons of fun in my craft room this week 
and today I am so happy to share my pergola card with you.
I cut this out on my portrait using the lovely file from Sandra that you can find in the store right here, If you love to make 3d bits its definatly worth a visit , you do not need to own a cutting machine 

I used the lovely new hemp embossed card from Papermill Direct for my base , its lovely and weighty and very beautiful and perfect for Christmas cards

I covered over with papers from Winnie Winterland Collection,  leaving a small edge of hemp still showing
The main charaters are also from the collection along with the bows
I borrowed the cutie robins from Twiggy and Toots Festive Fun
The tree is from Frosted Winter
and I have used the Lamp die from the 


So there you have all my links - I decoupaged some of the bits on the characters but that nasty winter weather is here which plays havoc with my camera! I also used splashes of glitter here and there

I loved the foresty feel , I did not start out with that in mind but it just grew

Baked With Love - Polkadoodles Crafting

Happy Monday to you all

Have you all spotted the new releases over at Polkadoodles?
&
Baked With Love
Have you all spotted the great bargain?
pop here to see how you can save a whopping 50% on baked With Love
But hurry the offer wont be about forever.....

So this is what I have been playing with at the weekend
A lovely file from Sandra's that  I cut on my portrait it is called BBQ and you can find it in the store right here. How fun and clever! The base opens up so you could hide a pressie or two inside.
I cut the base in really strong Kraft card

I made mine slightly different as I wanted a kitchen feel, so simply made the back a bit longer
Cut a hole so it looked like an oven 
shrunk down the cupboard piece (only legnth ways not width) adding in 4 sqaures in place of the cooker, making an extra row of cupboards

For decoration I have mainly used
Baked With Love
It really fitted with my kitchen theme
I also borrowed a few bits from 
Picknix 3 Nordic Winter - The little jars in the top cabinet
Twiggy Festive Fun - The coloured fairy lights
The Kettle on the stove is a cut file that you can find here I have just shrunk it right down

The main star of the show is Gingerbread Baker, working so hard to get all those festive nibbles baked but spot the naughty little Gingers hiding in the cupboards!!
I used actetate on the cooker front and on the front of the hanging cupboard
Added in a little clock charm, lots of food and utensils , a pie baking in the oven and my kitchen was good to go
Thanks for stopping by today
Please help yourself to a festive cookie that are sitting on the counter top

Q. Why did the gingerbread man go to the doctor?
A. He was feeling crummy.

Now what is amazing about this sleigh is that it can be made to lay flat for posting!!
As I wanted for a decoration I made it slightly different
How much fun is that!
Also in the file you get the little Santa bag , Ohhhh sooo cute
I used the amazing emblies and of course the lovely Winnie & Rocco from both collections to decorate

Baked With Love
I cut the sleigh on my portrait using Kraft card so it was nice and sturdy , I used gold card for edgings and the paper on the sleigh is from Winnie Winterland.

This card is 6x6 and is a beautifully textured cardstock
I used pre-coloured images absolutly adorable , also using the lovely sentiment Home for Christmas
The papers in this collection are wonderful , they add so much quality to your cards
I added a little ribbon and mixed some lovely flowers in with the paper ones.
Adding a little bell to the card and a jingly ball to the tag
The die-cuts used on the card are Ribbon/Gift frames and corners and the tag was die- cut using Bubbleicious frames and fancies

The inside was decorated to match using another of the lovely sentiments
