Its wk 110 at the SCSC challenge DT. The theme is Handmade Christmas Gifts

Good morning Secret Crafter Fans,

how is everything with you guys, hope you are all well and up for another challenge, and if you are short on a few craft supplies and you live in the Midlands and find yourself not quite knowing what to do with your spare time then please feel free to stop on by The Secret Crafter Store today Wendy is having an open day, there will be refreshments, Demos from the lovely Kate, and you will also be able to meet the lovely Jane and Tracie ,  and there's a free goody bag with every purchase over £25, Plus lots of other fabulous offers.

The SCSC challenge theme this week was chosen by the talented Jane, and has set the task of Handmade Christmas Gifts I went a Little over board with this because the first project I did was more of a recycled come altered item, I found an old folder covered it with some craft card, then with a watermark pad I stamped some words of inspiration on it then brushed on some Mica powders to add some colour, then I used a SN SS stamp for the main image, and coloured her with copics.

I then made a Note Book from some Kebab sticks, card and paper, which is actually a lot easier then it first appears, but I did have a book instructing me the whole time,  you see making books is a new thing for myself and the one you see in this photo is the first one I have made.

Then last but not least I made some keyring's and some fridge magnets,
for the fridge magnets I used I PB stamp on stampbord, then coloured them with Polychromos and covered them with a clear laquer, and I used the same technique on the keyring's only difference is I used Copic markers as the colouring medium,

Here is a of the items I have used,

Gloss Accents:

Have fun Hugs Bridget :)x
