The Best Kind Of Snow

Happy Tuesday everyone :)

After the dumping of snow we got over the weekend, I can say I have had enough snow to last me this winter! Whilst my youngest DD was out making snowmen in the snow, I came up with one of my own :)

Isn't he fun?!
Not only is he handsome (if a snowman can be handsome) but he doesn't melt and leave a puddle on the floor! Gotta love that ;)

Thanks for stopping by and taking a peek :)

Christmas Wrapping Covered!

Hello and happy Monday!

I know ... I haven't posted much of late. I've had lots of errands and last minute custom orders to get done so not so much time to create new goodies to share I'm afraid.

I'd been asked to hold a class making the gift card holders and wine bottle gift tags from my all day 'It's All About The Packaging' class so here it is. I'm sneaking it in just before the holidays!

I came up with two colour ways ... the red/green combo above and this shades of aqua combination ...

I am holding one class to make these projects and it will be on Thursday 19th December, 7 - 9 pm.
The cost for each gift card holder is $3.00 and the wine bottle gift tags are $2.00 each.

When you register let me know how many of each you want to make and what colours!

Thanks for taking a peek :D

Little Boy Blue

Hello and happy Tuesday!

One of my DD's teachers recently became a parent and she wanted to give the baby a gift.
I had a spare pair of sheepskin booties that I packaged up and made a gift tag for.

Here's the booties in the box ...

I made the gift tag using the 'Chalk Talk' framelits.
I cut out two tags (the second one is behind the first one) so my daughter could write a message.
Thanks for taking a peek! :D

An Olden Time Christmas Card

Hello again and happy Thursday!

Today's share is the second project for my 'Fancy Pants Finale' class. Isn't it beautiful?!
I love the vintage Christmas feel, the way it sits up and the rich colours.

Here's a side view to show you what I mean about how it sits up ...

This card is something a little different for a special somebody  in your life!

Thanks for stopping by and taking a peek :D

Lighting The Way

Hello and happy Wednesday!

I've been a bit quiet on here sorry. I had my Christmas At The Market last week and with preparing for that and recovering from it, I was beat!

Today I'm sharing a card for my upcoming 'Fancy Pants Finale' class. I saw this card on Pintrest and liked that it was different from a lot of other Christmas cards that are around at the moment. The original idea came from Carrie Gaskin (Thanks Carrie! :))

Class Dates:

Wednesday 11th December / Thursday 12th December, 7 - 9.30 pm

Cost: $20.00

Sweet Lil' Stockings

Hello all :)

Sorry for not posting much of late but I have a Christmas Craft Fair this week so have been busy making stuff for that!

This is a quick post to share some gift tags I made last night.
I've used the darling SU! stocking punch and the new 'Seasons Of Style' DSP. There would be some trendy wee elves rocking these socks! ;)

Have a great day and if you're at the market, stop in and say hi! :D

A Merry Little Postcard

Hello and happy Tuesday :)

If you follow me on Facebook you'll know that to celebrate reaching 100 LIKERS I randomly drew a name of one of my LIKERS and they would receive a custom made creation from me.
A lovely lady from Australia (Hi Carolyn! :D) was the lucky winner.
When I asked Carolyn what kind of card she'd like she said something with the new framelits so  this is what I came up with.

I can post the card now as Carolyn has received it!

Not LIKED me on Facebook yet?
No worries! Just click here.

Thanks for stopping by! :D

Joy Oh Joy!

Happy Friday!

Today is Random Act of Kindness Day so hold the door open for a stranger, say hello to someone or just pay some kindness forward :) I'd love to hear what random acts you do!

Today's share is my next Inky Moose Christmas Club card. It seemed fitting to post it today :)
I've used the retired 'Jolly Bingo' stamp set to create the word 'JOY'. Isn't it cute? I think so LOL.

Have a great day and thanks for stopping by :D

Coffee Anyone?

Hello and happy Wednesday!

One popular gift at Christmas time is gift cards so I have included a couple in the 'It's All About The Packaging' class.

This one is for a coffee gift card (ewwwww, coffee ;)).

I've used the fun 'Seasons Of Style' DSP on the card holder that's made from the Pop n Cuts die.
It's wonderful when you can use something for multiple uses!

I stamped the coffee cup on Crumb Cake, Whisper White and a scrap of DSP and fussy cut the pieces I wanted to make up my cup.
 I LOVE reindeer so the little guy on the cup was too cute not to include (he's from the retired set 'Snowbuddies').

Thanks for stopping by and have a great day :D

A Gorgeous Grunge Christmas Card

Happy Thursday :)

Usually I try not to include Christmas cards in classes that aren't specifically my 'Fancy Pants Christmas' or 'Inky Moose Christmas Club' classes as I don't want to bombard people with too much Christmas, but the stamp set 'Gorgeous Grunge' is so versatile that I just had to show that it can be used to create beautiful Christmas cards too!

I've used 'Gorgeous Grunge' and the music wheel to create my background for this card. The Poinsettia is made with the wings from the bird punch.
It's a pretty simple card but striking so it's sure to stand out on the mantle piece!

Thanks for stopping by and taking a peek :D
