Some Christmas makes...

Hello Lovelies, I hope you are all ok ? I have to say sorry for not being around, I have been feeling really sorry for myself after the fall and the temps have dropped here this week and my fibro is giving me some serious jip,...I really have not been a happy Tracy to be around ! 
BUT I have dragged myself to the computer today because I wanted to share with you a couple of Christmas makes I have made using some lazer cuts from That Craft Place, the lovely Lisa send me some goodies to play with a little while ago, but with the move I didn't get round to even unpacking them. Now I have to say the quality of these are AMAZING, Lisa cuts them in either greyboard or wood, and some even in fabric ! And she does cuts for everyone (you HAVE to check out the clock kits she does). With Christmas just around the corner....it snuck up didn't it ! ...I wanted to have a play with some of the Christmas bits Lisa sent me, and the great thing is I can paint left handed Hooray ! 

Anyway here is some of the things I have made...

How cute are these mittens ?? I used some paper from my stash to cover the main part of the mitten and then used Gesso for the "fur", the ribbon i painted using Pebeo Acrylic paint and then I used my Distress inks to pick up the texture, i then decided to give them a quick spray of Crafter's companion Spray & Sparkle in Gold. 

What house isn't complete without a Christmas pudding at Christmas ? I used Frantage for the frosting on this...I will admit I had everything crossed it would turn out ok. I painted the pudding using Pebeo paint and decided it looked a bit bare and needed something, so out came the sequins, and i finished it off with a double bow. 

 This is my favorite...I don't have kids but still had so much fun making this. I wanted to go non traditional colours for this and decided on white and ice blue. The back part I sprayed with Crafter's Companion Silver Spray and Sparkle. The letters i wanted to give some texture to so I rough painted them with Gesso and Pebeo acrylic paint. The candy cane board on the white sections I used Diamond Sparkles glitter whilst the paint was still wet, I decided to add ribbon to hang this but If you have a batton you could have this outside in the ground or in a pot...just remember to waterproof it first. 

All of the lazer cuts can be found at That Craft Place Website or on the fab Facebook group . Lisa also sells all other craft goodies, so make sure you check it out. 

I wanted to say thank you to everyone who commented, emailed and messaged me about my fall, you are all amazing and I am very blessed to have such fab friends. I am healing ok and hopefully will be back to colouring soon...I am getting serious withdrawal from it !! 

Take care and happy crafting
