A Look Back at 2011's Creations

Phew!! I like to do this every year on the 31st December - a look back at my favourite creation for each month of the year - it always amazes me how hard it is to choose and also how many cards I make that I don't actually like very much when I look back at them!  I think I will make it a crafting new year's resolution to only put creations on here that I'm 100% happy with!  So, without further ado here are my favourite creations from 2011 - some months have a couple as I just couldn't decide - I hope you enjoy looking through them!  If you would like to know more about how I created any of the cards click on the photo to go to the original post.


I love this one as I thought I'd get my distress inks out to colour with after over a year of not colouring with them and so was very pleased how it turned out!
This was for my husband's birthday - I loved how the image turned out and the gold leaf and crackle paint heart I made.


This was my card for my little girl for Christmas - loved how the window idea turned out and the Christmas tree!


The first card I made with the autumn Magnolia kit - love white colouring on kraft cardstock!


The card I made for my husband for our anniversary.  

A canvas I made for my little girl's room using Whiff of Joy's princess stamps.

Sorry....3 for September LOL!  I love this gorgeous image and the colours of this card - it is one I can't part with!


My ice cream cone and bowl of ice cream card that I made for a Magnolia Ink competition - the ice cream cone was published in the magazine - yay!!

The first "no lines" image I was happy with.  I also won a trophy at our village produce show for this card - "best craft item in show" :)

JULY 2011

The set of gifts I created for my Brother's wedding.

JUNE 2011

This is the card I created for my Brother's wedding.

MAY 2011

I love how this turned out and the brightness of it is unusual for me.  One of my first times colouring with Prismacolor pencils too!

APRIL 2011

I was so pleased how this turned out and I love the colours.

MARCH 2011

The card I created for my little girl's 3rd birthday inspired by her gorgeous fabric wendy house.


I was really pleased with the colouring of this one and I love the papers! - another one I can't part with LOL!

This was the card I created for my Mum for Mother's Day.


A gift box I created to put my husband's valentine gift in.  I love the gold on the red heart and it is still on display in our room after all these months!

I hope you enjoyed my rather long look back at 2011's creations!
   I want to wish you all a healthy and happy new year!!  See you all in 2012 :)!!!! x
