Christmas Mittens

Hello Everyone,

I hope you are all well and progressing nicely with all the christmas things we need to get done, Im afraid I am so behind with things this year, but I think as long as we can have a lie in christmas day and chill a bit through the day that will be great for us all here.

Today I thought I would share with you some Christmas Mittens I have made using Dreamees MDF mini mittens, they are now  on our christmas tree and they look lovely even thought I do say so myself he he .

The actual mini mittens I have used are available here

I have used papers from our simply christmas cd rom in pink available here I have just glued the paper on with cosmic shimmer glue and trimmed around the mittens when dry, then distressed the edges with gathered twigs distress ink pad  just to give a used brown look on the edges. I then used a quickie glue pen available here and added glitter across the join of the plain pink paper to the patterned paper. I then added a silver snowflake charm with a gem on the top too to add a bit of interest, I also used a piece of twine to add a bow, a little tiny pink button and a couple of twirled strips of paper for a bit of interest to the join part, I then added more twine to tie the 2 mittens together.

These mitten could also be used for maybe a new baby for a nice handmade gift.

Thank you for looking today and I hope you like the project, all of the items can be purchased from Dreamees at

Have a nice day

Glittery Seasonal Tree.

Hello Everyone.

I hope you are all keeping well, and getting on with your Christmas Shopping I am just not in the mood for it this year think I must be getting old ha ha .

Anywya today I am sharing with you all this card I made as a demo for our last show on Create and Craft but sadly didnt get to show you it all coming together so I thought I would share it with you all on here.

I have used the Seasonal Trees stamp set. I really do love this set of stamps they are so versatile and you can do any colours for the seasons as you get all the little blossoms, leave etc. I have used vellum paper to emboss the lovely tree onto using True White cosmic shimmer embossing powder this is stunning when finished. I added Dreamees glitter in the, Treasure and Chocolate sundae colours available on our website at
I have also used the stamp set the florals flowers set of stamps again embossed to blend in with the card nicely, the sentiment is from unique sentiments set of stamps too.
I attached the tree topper onto gold mirror card using brads because the glue can show through so I have gone for this option in the gold colour brads.
I also added a gold swirl using the Brother Scan and Cut machine and the swirl is from Dreamees Cuttables cd rom. Thank you so much for taking the time to look at my post and I hope it inspires you a little.
