Now you are probably wondering what on earth is this woman going on about christmas presents for when its only the beginning of January? Well I'm actually going to show you some christmas presents that I made this year for some members of my family.
The first one I made was for my eldest daughter Nicola and her partner Lee. Here it is.....
As you can see it is of gorgeous baby Leo. I've used a box frame and painted it white with Gesso (none SU) and them stamped on the frame in Basic Black and Real Red ink. The swirly pattern is from a stamp in the Creative Elements set and the flowers are from the ever popular Greenhouse Garden. To decorate inside the frame I've used the Flower Daisies and Fun Flowers Die and the Medium Sizzlits dies for the letters. The capital letters of his name have been mounted using the 2 different size Tag punches. The embellishments used are the adhesive Pearls and a couple of clips from the clip assortments, buttons and antique brads.
Now below is another present only this time it was for my youngest daughter Kirsty and her partner Alex. Unfortunately I didn't take a picutre when it was completed this is the "designing" stage but you will get the jist of what I did as its very similar to Nicolas.
This picture was taken of them when they were in Paris last year. The difference between the two frames were that I only put the swirly pattern on Kirstys and I've used the Heart to Heart punch and letters from the chipboard Alphabet Soup selection to embelish it. I've also used buttons, antique brads and filigree brads in the centre of the flowers.
These were given after all the other presents had been opened when we were at mum's on Christmas day and both girls loved them, in fact Nicola got very emotional :)
I hope you've enjoyed looking at my projects this time. Please leave a comment as I love to read them.
