These are the medium sized Christmas Crackers made using a tutourial from UK Demonstrator Caroline Hallett here They are so quick and easy to make, I've just made 10 for my sister and had fun decorating them with the Joyful Christmas set and the Festive Flurries bundle. The ribbon used is non Stampin Up.

I'm having a busy time at the moment, we moved into our new house in Patumahoe a week ago and this week as it's school holidays I have three of my grandsons to look after. On Friday I'm heading down to Queenstown with three girlfriends on our annual "Girls Weekend" I use the term "girls" loosely as we will be celebrating the 70th birthday of one of our number! Each year I make 3 or 4 Christmas cards for each of my friends to send to their friends, I will post them over the next couple of weeks. Here is the first one along with the decorated gift bag I put the cards in.
Like many others I see that Christmas is getting ever closer, I'm going to get more organised this year and start creating Christmas Cards earlier than last year. So far I've managed 6 designs, pretty good for me. Absolutely love the new Frosted Finishes embellishments from the Holiday Catalogue.
I'm going to teach this card at my class next week, I love both the flower Shop stamp and punch as well as the Alphabet Press embossing folder. I cased this card from Shari Fritz on Stampin Connection Click here
Here are some of the cards I created for my Grandsons to give to their Dad on Fathers Day, these cards can be easily used for any Masculine card needed. I have lined all the envelopes using the new framelits I love the way these finish of my creations.
I've recently purchased the Swallowtail stamp and just love it. I have cased a couple of cards from Eva Gail Lowe on Stampin Connection Click Here For one I used the same colours and only changed the back ground stamps, the other one I changed the Swallowtail embossing powder and sponged two of the new In Colours. Eva Gail very generously sent her tutourial to anyone who sent her an email and then followed up with instructions for taking a class in this card. Thanks Heaps Eva Gail.
