Ice Skating Ellie!

I have my first shaker card for today! It's a total coincidence (really!) that I was making a shaker card the same time that Jasmina's shaker card went live on Friday; oh well, that's OK, right?

I used Ice Skating Ellie (sorry for the horrible photograph of the image here; 
I should have waited until daylight to take the picture)

Garden Ellie

Happy Wednesday one and all. I truly hope you are all having a great week and are not getting to stressed that Christmas seems to be running at us rather than creeping up.

It's Lydia here at Paper Nest Dolls Blog and I've decided to go against the grain and make a non-holiday card..gasp..lol. ;)

I have used one of my favourites from the last release Garden Ellie.

<= h($product->name) ?>

How cute is she and the scene of flowers she is in is just perfect.. love her!

I have used G45 papers with this image that seem to match perfectly. 

Thank you all so much for popping by and I will catch you all real soon.

Love Lydia xxxx

Christmas Bella for Lucia

Hello, it's me Jill here today to share a special project with you.
Some of you may remember Christine drew a special image for me. She made a stamp called Christmas Bella for my daughter Gabriella. This special stamp is to celebrate Lucia Day.
 I am so happy the day is here, 13th december. Gabriella has really looked forward to this day and I have made her a gift.
Two weeks ago I found a video tutorial linked by a lovely friend of mine to a fantastic giftbag made by Roben-Marie Smith. I just knew I had to make something similar. I took some photos along the way and I would love to share them with you today.
The tutorial that inspired me is to be found here
This is my giftbag for Gabriella with the gorgeous stamp called
Christmas Bella.
I think she will like it . It is made in a way so that she doesn't have to tear it apart to open it. She wants to save it and keep in her room.

You will need two paperbags, booksheets or similar, an amazing PND image, glue, sewing mashine, dabber or acrylic paint, Frantage and some kind of twine.

Start by gluing the booksheets to one side of the bag. Use the side that dosen't  have the flip up or just flip it down. Try to glue the places you won't sew as your sewing machine does not like to much glue.

Sew around the whole base and also sew three times right over the bag. Don't trim the ends to much, but let them hang there for a shabby look.

Now the bag should look like this. Sew together the two paper bags, so that you now have one thick, wonderful bag. Don't sew the top!

Colour your image with Copic (or whatever you prefere)
Ink the edges and mat her on a piece of craft cardstock. Sew around image.

Make two holes in the top of your image and measure where to put the wholes on the bag.
Use a Cropodile.

Make dots with a Dabber or Acrylic paint.
I have used Snow Cap, White Dabber. My favorite as I looove white ;)

While the paint is wet put on some Frantage Shabby white and heat it with your heatgun.

Lovely effect from the Frantage.

Put your gift inside.
Bella gets a new Lip gloss that she wanted and two tickets to go to see a movie.
She is going to be superhappy ♥

Here it is ♥
Hope you like my little gift bag.
I loved making it and I will make some more for Christmas as I love to make special gifts for my friends.

Have a wonderful day all
I would love to hear your opinion about my little project, and you can find more on my blog HERE.
Want to have your own Christmas Bella?
You find her HERE in the PND shop, or if you live in Norway you will find this one and a whole lot other Paper Nest Dolls stamps at KREATIV SCRAPPING

HUGS, Jill ♥
