Christmas Decorations

I Love Christmas, so starting to make Christmas decorations is a joy. I've made the holiday catalogue front page one with a couple of minor changes, I used bakers twine and used a plain green button as I don't have the others and also added a little silver glitter in the middle. Luv it! The others pictured are made using the new Ornament keepsakes framelits and stamps, these are well worth purchasing, they are so versatile for decorations and card making.

Heartfelt Event

Stampin Up held a wonderful day for Demos and guests to attend demonstrations and view and use some of the new products.
I really enjoyed the demonstrations and would like to thank all the people who made this event so great.
The very talented Julia Leece demonstrated how to make some lovely books made using bamboo sticks (aka kebab sticks) as the spine of the books. It was just what I needed as a gift (mini album) for a family friend who has just had her 2nd baby.
I made a box for the book with a vellum lid and tied a baby blue ribbon around it.I used a number of different stamps, dies, buttons, ribbons and the pattern subtles stack papers to decorate the pages,

Scrap Book page

This page features 3 of my 4 grandsons having fun on their slip and slide earlier this year.
I used three of the new 2012-2014 "In Colours" which I love.

Christmas Cards

I hope you have all found some time to do a little crafting over the weekend. I have spent a bit of time making up all the card kits that haven't been used in my classes, so I have a couple of sets I can give away as gifts. I've also made some Christmas cards as samples for my classes that we will make between now and Christmas.
This card is ideal for quick cards that have a visual impact. The medallion has been stamped with the new midnight muse and then daubed with bashful blue and dazzling diamonds added.

The 2nd card, I cased from Catherine Pooler and I love the result.

I used the Lovely as a tree stamp set, with heat and stick, then added glitter.  Early Espresso and whisper white cardstock, the sentiment is embossed with white powder.

Christmas Decoration and bow.

A couple of Christmas projects. Thanks so much to Rhonda Fawcett for sharing this project, Rhonda has it on her site as a flower, which I loved and while making one up I thought this could make a pretty Christmas decoration, made with Christmas paper and some dazzling diamond glitter. Both the decoration and the bow have a diamante in the middle. These are so easy to make using the owl punch that I am going to get my workshop classes to make some.
The bow below I discovered while browsing the web on an American site, Jason Cooper, Thanks for sharing Jason.

Happy Birthday Nick

Tomorrow is not only "Fathers Day" but also our eldest son's birthday, I am pleased with the cards I made for our three grandsons to give to their Dad and also one from my husband and I to give him. These are all clean and simple cards which I know he will appreciate. I'm really enjoying the new Hostess stamp set "Happiest Birthday Wishes" as well as the new colours.
