Red Overload (Picture Heavy!)


I have been missing for so long! Well,actually that is nothing new here on my blog,but I have been missing because I have been busy with some projects.That's a good thing, right? I had participated in a couple of swaps this month and I was busy working on those.I will post all the projects in my subsequent posts.It takes so long for me to finish stuff, so I tend to ignore my blog.I don't know how people get so many things done so efficiently
Anyhow, I recently participated in a Secret Santa swap on's a lovely community of people who love to craft.They hold various swaps each month.Since I love Christmas, I loved the idea of being somebody's Secret Santa.It was a whole lot of fun.:-)

Today, I wanted to share a few handmade things I made for my partner.Her favourite colours are Reds and Green and Brown, so I made a few things for her.Here they are.

Here's the top of the box.Its painted in gold all over and the inside is also covered in paper.I forgot to take a picture if the inside of the box.:-)

And a look at the cards.I love the cards, if I say so myself.They were quick to make,so I made two!I love the paper and the image.I just used some silver glitter and some punching.The image is from Magic Moonlight Free Images.

Oh,before I forget! I also made an altered photo frame for my partner.I could not take a decent picture when I finished, so you probably can't see all the details.

I painted the frame using Fired Brick distress stain and then embossed the whole surface with a white embossing powder and a script stamp.The embossing is messy,since there was too much static and I don't have that tool which gets rid of that.I was trying to replicate the script design of the paper.

Hope you like this overdose of red.:-)
