My Favourite 2013 Papercraft Creations

I decided to look through the cards I had made this year and try and pick out my favourite projects.  I then realised just how busy I had been when I saw the amount of cards :D 
And then choosing Favourites, well that was so hard too. But it did help me see how much Cutting Dies have changed my crafting, for the better I feel :D

So I will share with folks the Projects I felt were my best this year -

I did a few Mini Books in 2013, which were great fun to make for a change.
Doing the various pages, all different, was a challenge. A fun challenge too.
I liked them all to be honest,  showing one of the Front pages to represent those projects

I didn't get chance to make many scenic cards this year, but I really like how this one turned out
The embossing board I used makes all the different too, and the colours all blend so well with Thomas Kinkade's stunning artwork

I did an Easel card this year, something I havent done in ages.  I really like Debbi Moore's designs, the artwork is stunning
And being able to do fantasy themed was nice too, one of those themes I would like to use more.

Of course my cutting dies came in handy again

Christmas cards seem to make up the bulk of the cards I make in a year, and it was really hard to choose my favourite cards from the selection I made in 2013.

This fun topper is a Debbi Moore one , from one of her craft mags. I so liked it for a change.
But it was the new Poinsettia and Holly dies I used on this card that really makes this one of my favourites

I made a decision to use up all my dufex that I had held on to for ages.
This the favourite card I made with the dufex designs, I love the colours and shape of it
Of course my cutting dies also came in handy and I do like how the swirl and snowflake compliments the 3D Design
I love the colours too, my favourites :D

Art Deco is still one of my favourite themes to use. And I loved this card I made with a sassy Art Deco lady design by Debbi Moore

I made it into a festive card, as the colours of the design work so well.  And again that swirl and poinsettia die just finished it all off
