Gorgeous Gifts Decorated Folder

Hello Everyone,

First of all I must thank you all for watching any buying from our shows on Create and craft last Friday the 21st November, we had 2 amazing shows one with the lovely Dave Bradford and then the second with the fantastic Leonie.

Today I am sharing with you the folder which I made as a demo but sadly didn't get to it, so therefore as well you didn't see it as a sample, so here goes , this folder is from the cd Gorgeous Gifts available on our website too as the deal with create and craft finishes this evening at 11.59 so if you would like it at the special price be really quick.
I decided to do this folder in Kraft card as I love the look of it when finished I used papers from the same cd but if you wanted to use some from a different cd that is always possible because the templates on the cd are in black and white for you to decorate.
I then added some matt and layers to add a bit of interest used gathered twigs distress ink pad. I then added the Dreamees lace which os so gorgeous we love it so much and add it to everything. I also added the lace down the spine of the folder for a nice shabby chic look too then added a lace bow to the front also adding a vintage button from the lace and button collection available only at Create and Craft,
I then stamped out some of the flowers from the floral s stamp set added pearls to the centre and added them across the bottom of the folder.

I do hope you have enjoyed looking at this post.
See you all again very soon.

We have had a great time at the NEC for Create and Craft, we did a demo on their stand with the lovely Dean Wilson, wow he is such a star, a real amazing person too, I will show you a pic at the end of which Dean took a selfie with all the crowd.

We are also doing a free workshop on Sunday at 2 pm on the Create and Craft workshop stand, so if you are visiting make sure you book a place as soon as you arrive. You will be able to take home a lovely card which you make  with us.

December Birthday card

Hello everyone,

I hope you are all well. Everything is going at such a fast pace here at the moment, I just don't know where the year has gone.

Tomorrow starts the big craft show at the NEC, Dreamees wont be exhibiting there this year, but as a treat for you all we are doing a live demo on the Create and Craft stand on Thursday at 1pm with the lovely Dean Wilson, then on Sunday we are doing a free workshop using Dreamees products on the Create and Craft workshop area so be sure to pop by and join in with us you must book for this first thing though to secure your place.

Right on with the card I am showing you today, this one I have titled December Birthday, I think looking for a December Birthday card is so difficult because all we seem to see is christmas cards, so when Hayley designed the Calendar stamp set I just thought wow this is amazing you can use it all year round for birthdays also for weddings etc and all special dates we make cards for.
The papers I have used have been printed out from the Cuttables cd which has been on Create and Craft last time we were on there which was the 21st of October, along with the Calendar stamp collection which I have used the month December and noted the date with the circle which comes in the stamp set too. I also added some of Dreamees lace across the card and used the sentiment from the beautiful blossoms stamp set same as the flowers for embellishments.
I then added a seam biding bow with a gem in the centre to finish the card.

I would just like to thank you for visiting my blog today.

Have a wonderful day.

Love Carol xx
