Shaker Christmas Decoration...

Just popping in today to share with you my latest creation.  When I was making my mermaid card last month, I thought that  the circle frame die could make a cute shaker decoration to hang on a Christmas Tree or  it could be attached to a lavously wrapped gift.


So I had a play and am happy with the way it turned out.  It was a bit fiddly as you have to wait for each layer of glue to dry.

I cut two frames from white fun foam and two frames from white Bazzill cardstock and then I cut a circle from acetate.   The insert is a mixture of sequins, shaved glass and small gold and silver stars.






Supplies used:
Memory Box Die - Shaker Circle Framers
Memory Box DiePoinsettia Bloom Trio
Mini Prills - I'm Amazed
Tim Holtz Thinlit Dies - Holiday Words Script

Thanks for dropping by, have a wonderful day.  Until next time happy crafting.

Mermaid Dreams...

Hi everyone  I am  popping in today to share with you my latest card.

For this card I wanted an oceany feel to compliment my image.







  I die cut a circle through the two top layers  using a die from Lawn Fawn - Large Stitched Circles, then die cut two circles with a Memory Box Die - Shaker Circles (not currently listed in store), these were then nestled inside the circle to create the illusion of a Porthole.  I then attached small pearls around the centre.


For my image I have used a stamp from My Besties called Steampunk Mermaid Dreams  which is so cute and have coloured her with Copic Markers.

For the background  I have used a newly aquired stencil from Dusty Attic called Fish Net  and then coloured it with Distress Inks in Evergreen Bough and Salty Ocean. 

.  I have also used Frantage Shabby Blue embossing enamel for some of the background stamping, together with Momento London Fog for the Seahorse, both images are from a Kaiser clear stamp called Coastal Escape.

The sentiment is a die from Penny Black and is called Celebrations.

Thanks for popping in, have a fabulous week.

Until next time - Happy Crafting

Christmas Joy Shaker....



Today I am sharing my first Christmas Card for 2016.

I have used one of my favourite go to dies from Avery Elle - Wonky Stitches.  A new die to my collection is from Poppy Stamps and is called Joy Tag and a favourite for Christmas Memory Box Die - Shimmering Snowflakes.

To create my shaker card I cut the tag die twice, once in cardstock and the other from white foam sheeting.  They were then adhered together and a piece of acetate added underneath.  I then cut away the area under the tag from the die cut base added my red and green bling and some glass beads, then sealed it up. 

The shimmering snowflake die cut was painted with matt medium and then sprinkled with Diamond Dust, allowed to dry and then layered together and a small pearl placed on top.

There are lots of new goodies been added to Bizzy Becs online store, so pop on over and check them out.

Thanks for dropping by, until next time - Happy Crafting
