Christmas ATC


Two posts in a row.Yay!!

I mentioned some swaps in my previous post.One of them was a Vintage Christmas themed ATC at MSR.We had to make 4 ATCs for our group and here is my entry.

The front of the ATC looks like an envelope and this is how it looks when you open it

Isn't that image adorable!I love love love it.I just cut the image in three parts.I figured,if one wanted to,they could use this on their mantle or something during Christmas.

I did not do too many techniques here on this ATC.Did not have enough time.I do hope that people who get this like it.

The image is from Graphics Fairy .

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.:-)
