2014 In Review

Hello and welcome to my last post of the year as I've decided to join in with Debby of A Scrap Journey's sharing your favourite 5 projects of the year.
Thanks too go to Mynn for pointing me in the direction of her Blog Highlights of 2014 Link Party which I'm also joining in with :) 
Before we get to my selections I hope you all had a really lovely Christmas and managed to grab a few sale bargains as I did. We had 15 for Christmas evening which went very well as we acquired a roulette wheel a couple of years ago and a good time was had by all!
Now for my choices of my 2014 favourites which wasn't as hard as I thought it would be, although restricting it to 5 was a bit tricky I have to say :)

My first choice is actually the one I made the most recently and is a mixed media wall hanging which I made as a DT contribution for That's Crafty. I love the pink and green colour combination as it's so Springlike and it has loads of texture and of course, butterflies which I'm sure you know how much I love.

Next up is a little mixed media arch on a favourite theme of mine - steampunk. It also has lots of texture and I love the arch shape.

Now I have some cards to share. The first I love because of the bright red and yellow combined with the black and white. I particularly like the layout of this one and the the washi tape which is stamped using a fab Kaisercraft set.

This card uses my favourite means of making background paper - Distress inks and of course, stamping! For this one I created a sort of frame effect with the Crafty Individuals flower stamp. I've used a favourite Paperbag Studios image too as she reminds me of my younger daughter at the same age.

Last up is a clean and simple design which is my favourite of the Christmas cards I made this year. It also uses my newest favourite stamps which are Dina Wakely's scribbly birds.

I hope you like my choices and here's to a very creative 2015!

Happy New Year everyone.

Happy New Year Fliss! Never worry about visits - it can be very arduous and time consuming can't it?
Love the makes you've chosen to feature too.
