Merry Christmas a little late.....

Hi there,
I just wanted to pop in to say Merry Christmas to you all. I know I am a day late but better late then never.
I also wanted to show you my sister Marion's Christmas Tree in case you didn't see it on Facebook or my other blog.


I hope you are enjoying a restful Boxing Day. I'm staying in out of the 40 deg heat.

Desk Calendars

Hi, yes again I have been forgetting to post things on my blog. I have been busy making some calendars for my family for Christmas.
here are a couple of them. The photo is taken on my phone so not that great. I had fun making these and I hope those who receive them will enjoy them.

welcome, 
as promised here is another Ornament card. this one I have used an idea from a card I saw on Pinterest by Jennie Struff and then added a few things to it.
I love the Midnight Muse colour. It is all I have used apart from white. The lovely stitched stain ribbon tops off the card and to add more interest prick the outside of the ornament with the pricking mats. Oops I can see in my photo that this card was one I didn't do that great a job on stamping the border  but then the close up one looks so much better. I added a sentiment from More Merry Messages. 




Now I need to go and make some more cards so I can come back and show you more. Hopefully it wont be as long a break as the last time.

Hi there,
I have finally started to make a few more Christmas cards. I am running very late this year. I love my stamp set Ornament Keepsakes so have been using it with the matching framelits dies. This card is cased from Angela McKay. Using 3 of the stamps in 3 colours. Early Espresso, Cherry Cobbler and Lucky Limeade. I have used the core'dinations card stock with the embossing folder Lacy Brocade. It is then sanded to show the core colour. 


Come back tomorrow and I will have another ornament card to show you.

Finally some cards for you....

hi there, 
Its been awhile... I have been making some cards but never seem to take the time to photograph them. I am taking photos all the time of other things but then forget about the cards. Today I have done some photographing of cards and over the next few days will show them to you.
Most have been cased from that wonderful place Pinterest. One of the reasons I haven't been popping them up here is also that I am not always sure where I found the cards and to acknowledge the designer is sometimes very time consuming. 
Anyway today I will show you a couple of Triple time stamping cards. I had fun making up some samples for my class to see all the different stamps you can use to make these cards. The first card I have used my new set, Blooming with Kindness and Midnight Mews.



This second card is using the wonderful French Foliage and some autumn colours. The Base is Always Artichoke.
I will be back to show you more of what I have been doing lately.

Come to Bethlehem

Hi there, I was reminded today that I haven't posted in a while so I thought it was about time I did. I have been at my friend Pat's cancer council Fundraiser and I contributed a very simple Christmas card. I used the stamp set Come to Bethlehem and the colours Crumb Cake, Soft Suede and Very Vanilla. 
The photos are not the best as I just took them on my phone. Anyway it was a great day and when I do photograph the rest of the projects I will show you.







Have a good week.

Ornament Keepsakes

hi, 
yesterday I made 2 decorations using the Ornament Keepsakes stamp set and framelits dies. I originally made the one on the front cover of the Holiday mini. I don't think I have shown that on here so I will add that as well. They are easy to make.






There are 7 different shaped baubles in the set so I have lots more ideas for making more decorations. If you would like to make some of these for your Christmas decoration then contact me and I can teach you how.

The next set I have used is Cherish Friendship. I painted the apples in red and used a gate fold card. The scallop circle is from Perfect Pennants Bigz die.
I punched the edges under the striped red DSP with the Dotted scallop ribbon border punch.
