The projects we created in our last
class for the year. 

Our first card used the gorgeous
DSP Season of Cheer and a fussy cut
baby deer from the Home for Christmas

The banner was created using the 
Banner Triple punch and stamped with
a sentiment from the Oh What Fun
stamp set.

Our star was die cut using the Stars framelits
and the bottom was embellished with
some of the Home for Christmas Green Enamel Dots.

Our next project  carried through the
same theme by creating a matching
gift bag with the Gift Bag Punch Board.

I wanted both these projects to be
something quick and simple which you could easily create multiples of.

Supplies used to create these projects.

Our last project the girls got to play
with some of the new products
which will be available in the Occasions
Catalogue commencing in January.

I had just received my pre-order and couldn't
wait to try out this gorgeous new
stamp set and matching heart framelits.

This card has used quite a bit of new
product and I will be able to share more
with you once the catalogue goes live
in January.

Don't forget the Christmas Catalogue will
be finishing on the 4th January and
there are a lot of beautiful Christmas
products which are retiring and included
in the End of Year Sale with some
awesome bargains to be had.

Make sure you get all Christmas goodies
before they are all gone.

shop to see what bargains you can find by clicking on this link and then choosing to go into

The lovely ladies from my monthly
 Saturday morning classes enjoying
 a little Christmas get together and their
last class for 2015. 

And look at these yummy Christmas cupcakes
baked especially for us by Liz.

A big thank you to everyone who attended
all the various classes/workshops I have
held throughout the year and I look
forward to seeing you all back in 2016.

Wishing you all a Very Merry Christmas
and a Happy New Year.  Hopefully, you will
have some time over the holidays to be crafty.

Thinking of You at Christmas

It has been an incredibly busy few
months here and I have missed posting
quite a few cards I have created recently.

Today I am sharing with you a card I
created for a special order which I 
really loved the way it turned out.

This one is all gold embossing, gold foil
stars and a bit of bling using one of
my favourite stamp sets Embellished
Ornaments together with the
co-ordinating Delicate Ornament Thinlets 

This card was created with a particular 
recipient in mind who likes the 
vintagey/shabby chic look.

The base card is Always Artichoke
and the Very Vanilla layer was
stamped randomly with a now 
retired Christmas Sentiment in Soft Suede 
all over and the edges also sponged
with Soft Suede.

Here are a list of the supplies used:

Christmas Card Buffet

Last day today of our
Christmas Card Buffet.

Thank you to all the ladies who
came along on Wednesday and
today and enjoyed making the
various cards they chose to create.

It was a lot of fun and I really enjoyed
this different event.

Keep an eye out for the next one which
will be sometime mid 2016.

We had a choice of 10 cards to create 
and most ladies were able to create at
least 4.  These were the designs.

My designs:

Petronela's Designs:

I can't seem to get the cards to show in good layout.  They look like they are in position on the screen when I preview but when I post they are all over place.  So I'm afraid this is as good as it gets.

How did it get to November already.  
Time is just flying by so fast.

All of a sudden it is time for another
Stamp Club.

Our first card in Stamp Club was this 
gorgeous one layer only card created
very simply with masking and

I have seen so many of these beautiful
cards around that I just had to try one for

I have created these types of cards before
but for a bit more inspiration I 
basically followed the tutorial which I 
found at this Link and was really easy 
to understand.  Thank you to Anns
Stamping and Scrapbook World.

The colours I have used are Night of
Navy and Tempting Turquoise and the
Stamp Set is Happy Scenes.

Our second card was inspired by cards
created by my wonderful team member
and shown on her blog Keep Stamping.
The colours I have used are Tempting
Turquoise and Pear Pizzazz for the
sponging.  The Christmas sentiment is
actually from the Oh' What Fun stamp set
which I have just stamped and cut out
the word Christmas.

October Card Class

Sharing our creations from the
October Card Class.

Our first card was a case from the
Holiday Catalogue using the Holly Jolly 
Greetings Stamp Set and Co-ordinating

This card also used the emboss resist
technique by stamping the snowflake
with versa mark and embossing with
white embossing powder.

Using our Stampin' sponges we then
sponged firstly Soft Sky Ink lightly
all over the piece leaving some white
showing through.  To add the deeper
blue colour we sponge daubered with
Lost Lagoon ink just in the middle of
the snowflakes.

Supplies used:

 Our second card used embossing again
to create the background on the Soft Sky
Layer this time using a clear 
embossing powder.  We have also
embossed with white embossing
powder the holly leaves which have then
been fussy cut and adhered to the
bottom of the window frame.

Supplies used:

No embossing at all in our final card.
This time we created a fun fold card
by partially cutting a circle from our
card so that when it stands open our 
snowmen are standing up.

Sharing the projects from this month's.
Stamp Club.

This month we focused on the new 
Hearth & Home Thinlets Dies and the
Holly Jolly Greetings Bundle.

Our first project also used the gorgeous Home
for Christmas DSP.  So many possibilities
with this DSP.  Here we have fussy
cut the Christmas Tree to be shown
through the window.

Our second project also used the same
DSP together with the gorgeous Delicate
Ornaments Thinlets Die.  Our sentiment
came from the Holly Jolly Greetings Stamp Set.

September Class Projects

Sharing our class projects completed in this month's classes.

We had fun using new products from the
Holiday Catalogue.

How gorgeous is the new Embellished Ornaments
Stamp Set and co-ordinating framelits.

On this card we used Old Olive to stamp
the Holly Leaves at the top of the card with our
sentiment being stamped in Real Red.

The ornament has been die cut with the
Delicate Ornaments Thinlets Dies.  A solid
ornament in Real Red and the beautiful
Filigree Ornament in Gold Foil which
has been layered over the top.

Our third project was creating a 
co-ordinating gift box with the new 
Square Pillow Box
Thinlets Dies and co-ordinating stamp set.

Again the colours we have used are 
Real Red as well as some of the DSP
 from the Merry Moments Paper Stack.

The sentiment is from the co-ordinating
A Little Something stamp set coloured
with Real Red and Old Olive Markers.

I have just discovered my photo of our 
second project has mysteriously disappeared. 
Not sure if the computer has gobbled it up
or if it was something I managed to do all 
by myself, so I will be back to share this 
card with you soon.

September Stamp Club

Our two projects from this month's
Stamp Club.

Our first project was a card which I cased from the new Holiday Catalogue using the new Embellished Ornaments Stamp Set.

Absolutely love this stamp set and matching

set for the Oh What Fun Tag Project Kit, so not only can you use it with the Tag Kit but also to create so many more different tags.
