twiddleybitz creations...

just sharing a few twiddleybitz projects that will be at the craft  show  in PERTH - i will make sure i get all the info for anyone who may want to go and check out the display stand!

Christmas crackers....

 I turned the crackers inside out and used some Studio calico mist and embellishment them using crate paper snowman collection and some twiddleybitz chipboard designs. I also used my Epiphany crafts star tool and custom made my star embellishment to finish the crackers off.. Each cracker  has a small gift inside and are ready to go under the tree in December!

 and next are a couple of xmas cards created using non Christmas chipboard - i wanted to show you that getting that theme is very easy and all you really need it the pattern paper to get you started!


 "happy holiday"

I've used a chipboard frame and cut the middle out acting like a window with the message on the inside.

Once again I used the crate paper snowman collection papers and a couple of diecuts and stickers, plus epiphany crafts round tool and bubble cap - little snowman.

thanks miss wally xxx
