My Special Project

Hi My Crafty Blog Friends

I hope you are having a good week. I seem to be very busy at the moment but it is all good so I can't complain.

Now I feel I am in the position to reveal the special project that  I have been working on.  I recently applied to join a design team to make samples for Tattered Lace for their television shows. They accepted my application and I was sent some Christmas dies the Owl Tree and Christmas Lights washing line to make samples with. The shows were on Ideal World and Create and Craft on Tuesday and Wednesday this week the 6th and 7th October.

These are the samples I sent in. 

I made this tea-light holder using my Hougie board and some heat resistant acetate and both of the dies I was sent. 

This is quite a simple card the background was make with my brushes and distress ink and a post-it note moon. One of the mats was red glitter card I used scraps left over to cut the hats. 

I cut the tag with my ScanNcut it was one of the preinstalled shapes. I cut the Owl Tree from kraft card I also cut one in black to make a drop shadow. I added colour to the tree and owls with my Promarkers. 

This card was in the background on the set. I used both dies again. To the Christmas lights I added Green and Xmas Red Stickles. The stars in the background were stamped and heat embossed in silver. 

This gift bag was made with my Hougie board. This  was placed on the counter where the demonstrations where done. The Owl Tree was cut in white and coloured with Promarkers. There is is a black tree behind to make a drop shadow, The background was made with home made stencils.  

This is the Sarah Trebilcock showing my tag. 

In the display you can see my tea-light holder in the front. 

On one of the shows there was a good view of the tea-light holder. I think I might make one like this for home now I have worked out what to do. 

This was a very exciting project to work on and it so nice to see your work on screen.  I hope I get to make some more samples soon.

I hope you enjoy the rest of the week. It is nearly the weekend. 

Happy Crafting

Hugs Jackie
