Christmas Photocrafts Challenge

Oh dear.  I so wanted to have a completed make to share for the Kodak Britmums photocraft Christmas Challenge.  I've managed to assemble all the equipment I need and found a photo I want to use, I'm just lacking the energy and fitness to do it.

It's been one virus after another here and I feel like I've been under house arrest for weeks.

So instead, I'll have to show you what I want to do, and hopefully update once it's complete.

We always leave a treat out for Father Christmas and this year I want to make her his own special plate.  She He's specifically told me that a mingy mince pie and a glass of milk won't cut it this year - she he wants a huge chunk of Stollen and a large glass of port.

So, I'm going to make a special plate for this purpose, using one of my favourite photo's of Ruby.  I've chose this one because it has just the right mix of 'butter wouldn't melt' and devilment in her eye!

I've sourced some specialist paper online that will turn your prints into water-slide decals, and I'm going to print this picture and transfer onto a china plate.  I've also downloaded a child-like writing font, so I can add the message "Santa, I've been a good girl'.  I'm not sure that's true, but I think the piece of stollen will look nice sitting on that!

If you want an easier, cheaper, and more child-friendly craft, you could do this with your kids by cutting and gluing a photo onto a paper plate and getting them to write their own message to Santa.

Hopefully I'll be able to show the finished product soon.

I'm Taking Part in the Kodak Christmas Photo Craft Challenge


  1. sounds like a fab idea i look foward to seeing your finished result.

  2. Sorry to hear you're under the weather still, the plate sounds like a great idea, I've used t-shirt printer paper before but never a transfer for crockery so I'll be interested to see your finished result. Hope your health improves before the festivities begin, wishing you all a very merry Christmas. x
