Christmas Cards – C

Hi and welcome to my blog (or welcome back if you’ve visited before).

CRAFTING

In this blog post I have another batch of 6 Christmas cards with wintery scenes to show you. They are made with the same 6 images as in my last post, but made yp slightly differently.

What I Did

I used some square toppers that have artwork by Pollyanna Pickering on them.

I used 6″ square craft card base cards and put plain inserts with just a greeting inside.

For these cards I didn’t use lace as in the previous batch, but I added some “snow” texture over some of the slow areas on each topper for a slightly different look and feel.

I used foam tape to attach the toppers, and fingerlift tape to attach the inserts.

 Christmas Cards – A – Nativity

Hi and welcome to my blog.

Today I have the first of several batches of Chrixtmas cards I have made this year to show you.

CRAFTING
What I Did

This btch of cards were all made using this year’s Hunkydory Nativity themed collection.  Some are made using cardstock from within the collection and for others I’ve used other base cards of one type or another from my crafting stash. I have used foam tape to give some dimension, as well as fingerlift tape to attach the toppers.

I have inserted an insert into each. Some match the toppers and some are plain with just a greeting.

2021 Calendar – 12 – Rhagfyr

December Calendar Page

Thank You! to all who are visiting my blog, whether for the first time or return visitors

Life

After a few months of makeing up Forever Flowerz and putting them together in bunches as Christmas gifts, I realize that I have a few more than I need, so I’ve decided to put some up for sale on eBay – you can see them here.

Here’s a small sample of the flowers I’ve included.

I only post within the UK because of expense of postage. I’m hopeing that somebody will want the large variety for several vase full for themselves, or to split to gift to several people.

I’m nearly finished packing my Christmas gifts for everybody. Which for me is good going for early December.  Going for the rustic look this year – in other words, no Christmas wrapping, just plain cardboard boxes and tape with snowflakes and berries on.

This was the bundle mid November – needles to say they will not fit under our small Christmas tree. The bundles are now even higher, and I need to get some delivered before they topple.

Now I really need to get on with my Christmas card makeing.  Hopefully I’ll have some card posts to show you before long.

I started some more mushroom boxes off growing in the utility room again.  I showed you some of my spring ones earlier in the year. I like to grow some in the spring and in the autumn. This year I was later than usual starting off the four varieties I chose. I was afraid that the drop in temperature would stop them growing, but, although they are very slow, there is some sign of growth in each container.

Only ones I’ve had a crop off yet are the shitake – they were at a much more advanced state arriving from the suppliers.

Even after cutting off a bowl full there were still more left.

I made enough mushroom soup for us to have for lunch two days, as well as a big tub of mushroom pate. And very nice they were as well.  I’m hopeing that one of the other types will produce mushrooms for Christmas – time will tell.

Crafting

Time to show you what I’ve put on my mother’s December calendar page.  If you missed seeing the previous pages you can see : January – Here! February – Here! March – Here! April – Here! May – Here! June – Here ! July – Here! August – Here! September – Here! October – Here! November – Here!

If you’ve seen any of my previous posts about the calendar I’ve been decorating for my mother month by month you will know that I ask her what she would like next.  This month I saw the lovely Nativity images in the Hunkydory collection I bought and knew I had to pick a background cardstock and an image from that colectio for the calendar.

What I Did

I chose a sheet of Adorable Scorable cardstock and trimmed my chosen background cardstock to slightly smaller before attaching it with fingerlift tape.

I then attached the chosen topper with fingerlift tape and used glue gel to attach part of the framing element.

The finished piece was left overnight to dry flat before it was stuck up on the calendar with fingerlift tape.

I printed out the month in Welsh and used fingerlift tape again to stick this on.

The Finished Page

These are photos of the finished page from slightly different angles trying to get to show the colours and some foiling.

More crafting to show you at some point so please do keep checking back for a look.

Have a great month everybody.

November Calendar Page

Thank You! to all who are visiting my blog, whether for the first time or return visitors.

Life

October saw me having to go to more outpatients clinics, but I still managed to do a little bit in the garden. Even if the slugs and snails have decimated my spinach seedlings I have had some veg to eat.

This pumpkin was so large I had to have one of my nephews carry it in for me. He put it on the kitchen table and it was all I could do to turn it around to cut a quarter out for my first batch of cooking from it.

I put the 330ml water bottle by its side to try and give an indication of its size.

I got two savoury pumpkin pies, two sweet pumkin pies, and a saucepan full of soup from a quarter.

Leaving me with three quarters of a pumpkin to process and put in the freezer for later use.

I’ve also had a good few apples in from the garden (my nephew got given a whole lot as well).

Bramley cooking apples were peeled and cored, with Mam’s help, and in addition to apple tarts I put several bags full in the freezer as slices and several bags stewed as apple sauce.

My crafting for October consisted mostly of makeing up Forever Flowerz and makeing them into bunches, displays, etc., and boxing them up as Christmas gifts.  I’ve already posted some blog posts about these, and have more to show you again.  Keep an eye out for them.

Crafting

Time to show you what I’ve put on my mother’s November calendar page.  If you missed seeing the previous pages you can see : January – Here! February – Here! March – Here! April – Here! May – Here! June – Here ! July – Here! August – Here! September – Here! October – Here!

If you’ve seen any of my previous posts about the calendar I’ve been decorating for my mother month by month you will know that I ask her what she would like next.  As I’d been spending the month makeing Forever Flowerz displays to give as Christmas gifts to family members, with the occasional bit of help from Mam – takeing photos of them all before packing them up – we thought it would be nice to make a panel for her calendar for this month showing some of the ones we’d made.  We made more than I’ve put on this calendar page.

What I Did

The background is just a photo of a lot of the flower heads I put together, taken in the big plastic box I was putting them in while working.  This was printed onto white paper and trimmed to make it smaller than the red sheet of Adorable Scorable I’d chosen to build my panel on. I used fingerlift tape to stick the paper to the cardstock.

The photos of the flower displays were shrunk and printed onto glossy photo paper.  After cutting them out and deciding on a layout Mam and I were happy with, I stuck them all on the panel using 1mm deep, double sided, foam tape.

The finished piece was stuck up on the calendar with fingerlift tape before I printed out the month in Welsh and used fingerlift tape again to stick this on.

The Finished Page

This is the whole calendar page

These are closer looks at the panel I created

Have a great month everybody.

October Calendar Page

Thank You! to all who are visiting my blog, whether for the first time or return visitors

Life

Despite my health not being the best, I have managed to do a little gardening. Moving and sitting down to do everything. But got some nice food for the table. For some reason only the dark purple coloured carrots grew from the pack of mixed carrots seeds. I added some Tesco orange carrots to them for some added colour for a sunday lunch in mid September.

With them we had some home grown “bright lights” (mixed colour) swiss chard and some home grown red potatoes.

While I was too shakey with my health to go out the garden the garden, a couple of the courgettes grew rather large to a marrow size, so I gave some away and made a marrow pie with one.  In fact, I had so much filling after prepareing it that I’ve bagged some and put into the freezer to make another pie in the winter.

The pie looked quite good after bakeing even if I do say so myself.

Crafting

Time to show you what I’ve put on my mother’s October calendar page.  If you missed seeing the previous pages you can see : January – Here! February – Here! March – Here! April – Here! May – Here! June – Here ! July – Here! August – Here! September – Here!

If you’ve seen any of my previous posts about the calendar I’ve been decorating for my mother month by month you will know that I ask her hat she would like next.  The theme chosen for October was animals again, so I had to something different to the donkeys I did last time.

What I Did

I believe that these images are by Pollyanna Pickering.  They all came in a kit together, as did the sheet of paper I used as a background.  I chose a grey Adorable Scorable as the main, frameing, background.

Everything was stuck on using fingerlift tape this time.

The finished piece was stuck up on the calendar with fingerlift tape.

I printed out the month in Welsh and used fingerlift tape again to stick this on.

This is the panel ready to stick on the calendar.

September Calendar Page

Thank You! to all who are visiting my blog, whether for the first time or return visitors

Life

My health has taken a serious turn for the worse over the last few weeks.  I’ve had a cellulitis infection in my left leg – the leg that has never had such an infection before.  Then, having been on antibiotics for that for three weeks I developed jaundice.  Then I collapsed and had to be taken to hospital the end of August.  I will have to have more hospital visits to confirm exactly what is going on, but indications are not too good.

Which, of course, means that I did a rush job for Mam’s callendar page for September, and it really isn’t of my usual standard.  In fact I’ll go so far as to say it’s probably the worse I’ve done for her.

So …

Crafting

Time to show you what I’ve put on my mother’s September calendar page.  If you missed seeing the previous pages you can see : January – Here! February – Here! March – Here! April – Here! May – Here! June – Here ! July – Here! August – Here!

If you’ve seen any of my previous posts about the calendar I’ve been decorating for my mother month by month you will know that I ask her hat she would like next.  This month she asked for flowers.

What I Did

I just scribbled a background with green and blue watercolour markers.  Added in some brown, branch like, lines.  Then I stuck on a couple of different sized flower embelishments in several colours using glue gel.

The finished piece was left overnight to dry flat before it was stuck up on the calendar with fingerlift tape.

I printed out the month in Welsh and used fingerlift tape again to stick this on.

The Finished Page

This is the panel ready to stick on the calendar.

August Calendar Page

Thank You! to all who are visiting my blog, whether for the first time or return visitors

Life

July was a busy month in the garden. Mostly fruit picking.  The loganberries have once again got a good crop.  I’ve been having to pick every day or two to get them before the birds. There have been some raspberries ripening as well.

I freeze them on a flat tray and then put them in large bags in the freezer. That way I can just pull out a handful for a quick, icy, smoothie, or pull out a lot for cooking something.

One of the cactuses that I’ve got after my late grandmother realy liked the repotting I gave it in the spring as it has now flowered and has several other buds on it.

Crafting

Time to show you what I’ve put on my mother’s August calendar page.  If you missed seeing the previous pages you can see : January – Here! February – Here! March – Here! April – Here! May – Here! June – Here ! July – Here!

If you’ve seen any of my previous posts about the calendar I’ve been decorating for my mother month by month you will know that I ask her hat she would like next.  This month she asked for something I hadn’t done done before – which left a large number of posibilities!

What I Did

I recycled an old card for one of the toppers, and used another topper from my crafting stash.  I matted both of them onto a layer of brown Adorable Scorable cardstock.  I also cut strips of that cardstock to put as paper ribbons on the page.  I used a blue Adorable Scorable sheet as the main background and stuck a piece of patterned paper that I’d trimmed slightly smaller over it.  I kept this calendar page flat by only using fingerlift tape to stick things on.  I stuck on the matted and layered toppers at an angle, and put the paper ribbon elements on the page so that they wnet behind the corner of the toppers in some places and over the toppers in other places.

The finished piece was was stuck up on the calendar with fingerlift tape.

I printed out the month in Welsh and used fingerlift tape again to stick this on.

The Finished Page

This is the whole calendar page (sorry for the bad quality of photo).

This is a closer look at the panel

July Calendar Page

Crafting

Time to show you what I’ve put on my mother’s July calendar page.  If you missed seeing the previous pages you can see : January – Here! February – Here! March – Here! April – Here! May – Here! June – Here !

If you’ve seen any of my previous posts about the calendar I’ve been decorating for my mother month by month you will know that I ask her what she would like next.  However, this month I went with my choice.  I saw a photo that reminded me of a story Mam had told me of her loving to play with the working horse they had when she was very young.  She said she was tiny at the time and could walk underneath the horse’s belly – which made her family very worried, but the horse never once attempted to kick her.

What I Did

For this panel I kept it completely flat.  I took an A4 sheet of white cardstock and stuck on two pieces of different coloured background cardstock with fingerlift tape.  I then chose a wood effect print and stuck it on at an angle towards one side and my chosen topper at an angle towards the other side.

The finished piece was stuck up on the calendar with fingerlift tape.

I printed out the month in Welsh and used fingerlift tape again to stick this on.

The Finished Page

This is the panel ready to stick on the calendar.

I’ll be back with next month’s calendar page the begining of next month, but I’m concentrating on gardening at the moment so there may be more crafting before then, but there may not.

Another Crochet Project – Lap Throw

Thank you for coming over to have a look at my blog

A Lap Throw I Crocheted

Hi and welcome to my blog (or welcome back if you’ve visited before).

I still had some bits of yarn left over from when I crocheted a blanket for myself some time ago, and then crocheted a blanket for Mam last month, which you can see – Here!  I wanted to use up all the little bits, so I decided to make Mam a lap throw ready for when the weather gets colder again

CRAFTING
What I Did

I crocheted smaller “granny squares” than I had done previously.  As some of the yarn pieces were getting a bit too short for a complete granfy square I did crochet some squares with different colours for different rows.  I then used some yarn to crochet join them together.  I finished off by crocheting a border all the way around, makeing the border wider top and bottom.

What I Used

Leftover yarn and the same brown yarn I’d bought to finish off Mam’s blanket last month.

Finished Items

This lap throw is much smaller than the blanket I made as it is just to throw over Mam’s legs.  She already has a shawl I crocheted her some time ago that gets wrapped around her shoulders if she feels cold.

Here’s Mam with the lap thrown over her legs – pretending to have a snooze.

She couldn’t pretend for long and then started laughing.

I have several bits of different crafting on the go at the moment, so keep an eye out for them over the next few weeks.
