Kirsty-Anne ( You are Here )

Here is my Christmas creation for you I was inspired to make a tag holder for tags I made ready for wrapping so here it is !!

I have made the holder making one larger open box and then added two smaller boxes to the front and then added the early bird doohickey die to create these cute little houses !! I have used Magnolia design papers and leaves and added some berries and stars topped with snow and pearl trim.

I have made a small lollipop decoration with Poinsettia Tilda using a Tim Holtz rosette die with Papermill linen card and I have matted behind her with Magnolia Design Paper , She has been coloured in Neenah dessert storm kraft paper with prismacolor pencils and a uniball sigma white pen to highlight.

The envelope underneath is from a Magnolia 
Vintage box and the stamp from there too. I have put the topper on some wire with a mini pom pom on the bottom, 
On the other side I have coloured Tilda with holiday sweater !! and used a charm and cabochon with more designer paper underneath .

I have made some tags large and small and some quick cards using Magnolia Vintage Box stamps and dies and finished with a wink of stella glitter pen and nuvo drops.

I hope you are inspired to join us and visit all the gorgeous inspiration from
The Midweek Magnolias design team <3

Christmas Canvas

Hi Crafty Bloggers 

Had a ball getting all covered in paint whilst making this canvas for Christmas !!
I have painted first with guesso and then used Finnabair acrylic paints and mica powders to colour .
I started with some cut staws for the tree base and used these beautiful resins from the Trinket Parlour on facebook . I then added a prima mechanical topped with a metal embellishment ring and at the bottom an ornate handle with some leaves .

The gorgeous florals are a mix of flowers 
and stamens and a couple of pine cones to finish .

The bling to finish is from MaremiSmallArt on etsy .

The chippie snowflakes I painted with distres stain. 

I hope you like my canvas and are getting all
 excited as Christmas comes closer <3

Our Sponsor

All the gorgeous inspiration from the design team and
 all the details of how to enter are on the blog !!!!!

I have made a twisted easel card from a super tutorial I found from one of my favourite crafters Jennifer D you can find it here 

I have coloured Tilda stamp Me & my snowman with prismacolor pencils and used a uniball white gel pen to highlight. I have cut tags from the Vintage box 3 . The chipboard stars are embossed and topped with pearls .

The papers are by Pion.  I have added a tag in the corner
 another cute stamp from this collection.

I have embossed an older text stamp from Magnolia and
 made a shadow with my pencils around the text.

I have used another snip art chippie from The Trinket Parlour on Facebook and used the fuse tool to create the shaker window in the middle filled with sequins.

I hope you are inspired to make a twisted easel
It was so much fun to decorate !!

I have placed a tag at the back and a place to write the sentiment .

I hope you will join us <3
