Sylvanian Family Decoupage

Hi Everyone

I'm at my nana's house and i was looking through my sylvanian family magazines picking out what i would like for Christmas and i found this decoupage project to make.  My grandad stuck it to some card last night and me and Nana cut it out this morning.
Silly nana cut through the frame so we stuck it together. I put it all together using collal 3 d glue gell.  I'm going to take it home tonight to show mam.  And i hope i get some more sylvanian family toys for Christmas as i love collecting them.

Hope you like it.

Making the Advent Calendar

On Sunday i posted my pictures of the advent calendar made with my nana lou.  The camera wasn't working properly and she used her old one but never had these from the beginning when i started to make it.

this is to show you all that i really did use the ultimate pro to score and fold the boxes. 
This is in my nanas craft room.
Big smile as we had fun all day.

Advent Calendar

Hello and this is my first post.

Today i have been making an advent calendar with my Nana Lou.  She started at Craftaganza and didn't finish it so i helped her finish it off today.  It has kept us busy all day long.

First of all i scored the inside of each box on the ultimate pro and then folded them, creasing each line using the scoring tool.  we then made the wrappers and stacked the 12 boxes together.  We then put them all together and added this underneath the bit that was already made.  After this we then added some more purple and blue card with snowflake paper on the top.

I wanted to add a picture to the top so i chose a little swalk girl from winter cheer and coloured it in with my nana's spectrum noirs.  I coloured the face  using 3 skin tones, 142,133 and 132 and then 135 for the cheeks.  Then i chose blue and pinky purple to match the calendars colours.  to finish off the picture i used a glue pen and sprinkled some glamour dust over the furry edges to her coat, hat and snowflakes.

After this i thought it needed some decoration so we put on some sparkly snowflakes with a gem on to each side and the top.  To finish we put handles for each drawer made of ribbon. Once the glue has dried we are going to put chocolates in the drawers and the top box.

All done! I love it.
