2014 and New Year and a new wonderful craft joining with Elizabeth Craft Designs and Karen Burniston joining crafty forces and I for one can not wait to see what is coming out in January.
First up a sneaky peak in video for of Karen/Elizabeths "Pivot dies" these work in a similar way to the pop n cuts from Sizzix the 3d label and 3d butterfly but they are way awesome as you can use them on any card size you want :) and also you get a stack of decorator dies in with it too. In this video Karen shows the heart die but at the beginning you get to see the two others in this range.
You Tube video is HERE
Also to celebrate the sneaky peek of these dies Elizabeth Craft Designs is offering a Facebook give away. Simply LIKE and SHARE to be able to win. Their page is HERE. So go ahead, like the page, like the post and share the post.
I will be sure to share any more info I get :)

I can't believe its that time again, only seems the other day I did the November challenge!
I admit to being a little over whelmed with all crafting I have had these past couple of weeks. A school fair table where I sold Snowman Soup, Reindeer Poop and other bits and bobs. All made in the few hours between kids bedtime and my own over the few weeks previous. Brownies craft where I had a lovely time making the Sizzix House with approx 25 Brownies!and also preparing Beaver crafts where this Wednesday I will be making lolly pop stick snowmen for them to decorate and hand on their trees. I still have orders for Snowman soup/Reindeer Poop and a sheep for the beavers church service this Sunday. I am getting there and hope to soon start on my Christmas cards! yes I did say start.. not one made yet.
Anyway back to the job on hand. This month Karen was really kind and opened up the anything goes theme. Trying to showcase the vast array of Pop N Cuts that Karen has designed we were able to choose different designs. I picked the LOVE insert and there were many ways I could have gone with the love. Valentines, baby, friend or anything or anyone you care about. But seeing that we are all in the throes of Christmas Madness I would share some "Christmas Love".
I hope you can see the LOVE in the middle of the card as it seems to be
a bit dark in the photo. The Love insert can be brought HERE if you are in the UK
I used the Penny Black "Fairy Wishes" stamp and a Woodware
punch to create the look that the fairy is standing in a Holly Wreath
and spreading her "Christmas Love" everywhere.
I hope you have enjoyed looking at this card. I enjoyed making it as I have every card I have
made with the amazingly talented designer friends Karen Burniston has on board.
