Polkadoodles Winter Flurries collection - Heartfelt Winter Wishes

Gradually getting back in to blogging after a long absence and it's amazing how much I have missed it. I have popped over and started writing posts but ended up saving them to 'draft'. I'd make blog writing a lot easier for myself, if I kept them short and sweet ... but never seems to happen. I use my blog as a way of sharing my projects but it's also my on line crafting diary, one I refer back to continually; I suppose that's why I miss it when I haven't posted in a while. Deep crafty thoughts ... Anyways, did you see Nikky Hall on Hochanda launching the wonderful Winter Flurries and Magical Winter Collections a wee while ago? I had great fun playing with all the components and didn't want to stop. I even used glitter ... yep glitter ... the crafters skin exfoliant, scourge of my life! Okay slightly a wee bit melodramatic. Below is one of the projects I made for the launch shows using the 'Snowflake Garden' stamp set ...

Tonic Festive Triangle Kaleidoscope Boxs - Ho Ho Ho!

I hope you've been enjoying the shows so far with Jodie on Hochanda and have to admit that I am in love with those huge star boxes but it was the hinged lids that really blew me away - genius idea. I think that is definitely one I want to do for the children in school not just for Christmas but as a maths resource ... sad I know. Popping by to share my 2nd project using the dies to create a triangular shaped box with a side opening, secured in place with magnets placed on to a triangular flap ...

Tonic Festive Kaleidoscope Triangle Box - Merry Christmas card

Oh my, it's been a while. Things were a wee bit hectic for a while but thankfully calmer waters are now being sailed upon. In other word several long stories but won't bore you all 😁😉 Today over on Hochanda, Jodie is launching the new Tonic Studios Kaleidoscope Box - which of course fits perfectly with all the other Kaleidoscope boxes already launched - what else would you expect from Tonic Studios ... My first project that I am sharing today for this launch, is actually a quick & easy card made using elements from the triangle lid, plus the additional flora/fauna elements.
