I hope you are all well and have enjoyed your weekend. Back to it today! hey!
For my card Ive used one of the newest Tilda's from the latest Christmas Collection 2015 coloured with Distress Reinkers. (Sorry I dont know her name yet)!
Ive used Pions  Christmas papers 'Winter Birds' from 'Glistening Season' along with some beautiful decor from  LLC

For the background behind Tilda Ive used Gilding Flakes with the text Merry Christmas from Magnolia.

Christmas DooHickeys Volume 7

 Hiya Again
Im back with my other two projects using the Christmas projects from Magnolias DooHickey Volume 7
When the dies arrived I have to admit the one below puzzled me??!!
So much so I had to email Magnolia.....HELP!.. They replied you twist it!! hee hee
Haaaa haa ha YES! of course how very clever :D 
I could have endless possibilities with this die.
You could even make your own paper Christmas Tree!!
Because I was so short of time for these projects( 2 Days in fact!) I had to make do with a Christmas Garland.
Very fiddly but the result I was happy with :D

For the shape of the card below I used the corner die which is in the kit
I hope Ive inspired you a little.
Thanks so much for stopping by today

Christmas Bauble

Today to share is one of the projects I made for the Christmas Edition of the Magnolia DooHickey which is out now..

Here is my step by step on how I made this Christmas Bauble
 Step 1
Using the Snowflake DooHickey Cut out 6 times using a thick card.
Using a 4cm diameter Polystyrene ball, adhere each snowflake evenly and allow to dry.
 Step 3
Paint the whole ball using Gesso and dry thoroughly.
 Step 4
Once dried paint with Vintage Chalk paint and again wait until it has dried then apply a thin layer of wax.
 Step 5
Add pearls to the center of each snowflake and smaller pearls to the points.
Step 6
For the Christmas Fern using the long DooHickey Die, cut out with green cardstock and run a small amount of glue along the straight edge

 Step 7
Now twist from the top all along the straight edge and you should have a fern branch.
Step 8
Cut out flowers with flower die and add berries and decorate bauble with foliage.
Add Seam Binding to hang and a decorative embellishment in bottom.

As always the dies are amazing, Im sure you will LOVE them.
I will call back tomorrow with a closer look of my other two projects in the background.
