Looking back at 2011 – Collaging fun card making evening

I went to a card making afternoon event at the Museum of London.

There were boxes of fabrics, paper, old magazines, pots of glitter and lots of glue. It really was lots of fun being able to play and a bit like being back at school πŸ™‚


Christmas cake pops

Time to join my partner Dave to make some cake pop presents. Crumbled madeira cake was mixed with white chocolate and shaped into balls. The sticks (made from cut down wooden barbeque skewers) were inserted into the set balls then the cakes were dipped into chocolate. I made holes in a box to make a rack for cooling then decorated when set

I then made a box to present the cake pops in. Just need to seal with cling film and add a gold ribbon πŸ™‚

Christmas card design

Well I thought I'd have a go at designing a Christmas card using a collaging programme. I wanted a crafty vintage traditional feel

I also used part of the card design for a mini card to display one of my hand stitched decoration gifts
