Christmas on the Horizon

Christmas is looming very quickly indeed, I have started creating some cards for my workshop ladies, using both old and new products. I love the new raspberry ripple "in colour" which works really well with the new gumball green. These cards are quick and easy to make. Hope you all have a great weekend and manage to get in some crafting.

Double Gated Fold Card

Here is another of the projects from Stampin Fun and Friends a double gated fold card created by Paula Reid, who fortunately for us is one of our team. Thanks Paula for sharing your great work.
Why not think about joining stampin fun and friends for the next session.

NZSU Retired Challenge

Hi, I hope you have all had a good weeken and managed to get in some crafting. Below is the Birthday card and mini card set I made for one of my daughter-in-laws, the card was cased from Julia Leece @ Thanks for sharing Julia, I love following your great work.

Sorry about the photo quality, I couldn't retake it as I had already posted the card.
Yesterday on Stampin Fun and Friends Vicky Wright showcased a Mini Album which I have cased and as it uses the retired stamp set, Vintage Vogue, I thought I would use it in the NZSU retired challenge.

Album in a Box

I enjoyed making this "album in a box" that I cased from Chiaki Haverstick @
I have yet to add photos. Thank goodness it has stopped raining here today and I have the ranch slider open to let the sun in while I create a birthday card for one of daughter-in-laws, I have also made her a card box with 6 mini cards and envelopes. Love making envelopes with the simply scored tool.

Card Candy Gift Box

Hi Guys, I have just finished making a "Card Candy gift box", which I am going to give to one of the delightful ladies who attend classes next Tuesday night, we will draw a name out of the "hat". I cased this lovely set from Connie Stewart at  Connie has a video for this project and many others on her site. Thanks for sharing Connie. The idea is to prepare basic cards and add small prepared embellishments and sentiments to the box so that the receiver of the gift can decorate the card further and choose a releavant sentiment etc. I chose to use whiper white and daffidol delight for the set.
