Crafter's Companion 11th Birthday Blog Hop!

Hi Everyone, welcome to my blog.

I had great fun creating this project for one of you to win in the Birthday Pass-the-Parcel Blog hop - details here - Good Luck!






I've created an advent box using the fabulous freebies and papers from the CD that come with Crafter's Inspiration 12.

Let me show you round.......
I began with a lovely wooden drawer unit purchased on a recent visit to the Newton Aycliffe store, and gave the edges a coat of Pebeo Dyna paint #357. It covers beautifully and leaves an iridescent finish.


Whilst it was drying, I printed lots of patterned papers and embellishments from the CD using Crafter's Companion Light Printable card.
These were then used to create little advent envelopes which I have decorated using the fabulous luxury glitter cardstock - I don't think I've ever seen one so sparkly before, I am in love!

There is also a little ornament for your tree made from the dies and stamps that come with the magazine - I can't believe how brilliant these gifts are!


And the other side.....




The drawer fronts have been treated to Leonie's embossing folder highlighted with a scattering of gems.


The top and sides were covered then embellished as above with the deer, on top with flowers and lots of bling....... 


And with this cute little character - all from the CD.


Check out the schedule on Hochanda here which will show you all the fantastic products coming up.

OK - rules and conditions:
 Hoppers you are welcome to comment as and when you like however, the prize will only be available  when I'm holding the "parcel"
Crafter's Companion UK  will announce on Facebook & Twitter when the music has stopped and to whose blog you need to go. 
The Prize will be posted within 2 weeks to the lucky recipient. 

I hope you like it :)

Happy 11th Birthday Crafter's Companion and here's to many more!
