Merry Christmas.......

Merry Christmas to All of You, Hope you all have a relaxing time.

I have been busy catching up with things here, lots of sorting, cleaning etc but all is done now. The fire is on and Sid has positioned himself right in front of it, he is so hot, not sure how he can stay there so long.

When we went to Convention this Year, we were told that we were getting two new Mini Catalogues. The first one starts on the 4th January, Gosh there are lots of new things in there.

At our Downline Meeting last week we played with a few of the new bits and bobs. We made this card using some of the new papers, stamp set and a new bigshot die.

The Bigshot die is called Blossom Party its so pretty and has lots of flowers to choose from.

Shelli Gardner made a cute card pouch from some of the new Designer Fabric called Spice Cake, so this is what we made during our Downline Meeting.

Debi was a Whizz on the Sewing Machine...... You can make four of these Card Pouches from one piece of fabric, so very economical and very simple to make. The middle flower was a ripped piece of fabric, gathered up using a running stitch and then a new button added to the middle.

Add some pretty cards inside and you have a lovely gift for someone.

Right then, I am on guard of the Kitchen as my lot are constantly in the cupboards, anyone would think its Christmas!!!!

Hope you all have a lovely time with your loved ones.

Merry Christmas

Creative Elements 2012 Calendars.....

Gosh! It's that time of year again to make some New Calendars. Is it really going to be 2012! I had to keep checking I had the numbers around the correct way....hee!

These CD calendars were so popular last year, so we made them again this year.

I used the Beautiful Stamp set called Creative Elements. The colour combinations were Soft Suede, Pink Pirouette & Very Vanilla or Soft Suede, Marina Mist & Very Vanilla.

The CD Calendars don't really take up must space on your desk and they close up, which is useful for posting as a gift.

The numbers were cut with the bigshot and the timeless alphabet.

This is the Vertical Calendar, first page.....

These are the Horizontal Calendars. You will get both Calendar PDF's with the Class instructions.

I'll be back tomorrow with my Beautiful Season Stamp Class.

Thanks for looking,

Aviary Stamp Class.....

Good Morning,

While we were at Convention, I designed a Scrapbook Project for my Downline Ladies to do while we were away. I used one of the New 6" x 6" Scrapbooks called the Polka Dot Party.

I used the Nursery Nest Papers and the Nursery Quick Accent Stickers. The papers will split up to a Boy and a Girl Version of the same Album.

For the Boy Version I used Marina Mist, Basic Grey and Pear Pizzazz and For the Girl Version I used Perfect Plum, Blushing Bride and Basic Grey.

The Album comes complete with 10 clear page protectors. Therefore giving you 20 layouts.

This is one of the page layouts.

My Stamp Class Ladies liked the Scrapbook Album so I have added this to the Aviary Class Instructions. We used the Aviary Stamp set to make the selection of fun cards.

I used the same colour combinations for the cards in the Boy and Girl Versions of each card.

Right then one more crossed of my long ever growing list of things to do....

Hope you have a nice weekend.

Thanks for looking,

Bigshot Club - Two Tags Cards, Gift Boxes & Tags...

It was the Bigshot Club last night and we made a selection of things using the Two Tag die this time round.

The colour combination is Pool Party and Island Indigo. The stamp sets are Serene Snowflake, Petite Pairs & Delightful Dozen for the sentiments.

The lacy border punch makes a very pretty handle for the basket.

The square gift box is perfect for a tall candle as well.

We decorated a glass bauble for our gift box with curls of designer paper.

The insert keeps the bauble from bounching about.

Polar Party Stamp Class.....

Hello Everyone....

This is the Polar Party Class and I also used this design as my swap cards for Convention. The penguins are so cute! I have been watching Frozen Planet and I can't get enough of the Penguins on that programme, they are so funny. I'm sure one of them is a man in a suit! He was pinching rocks from another Penguin who had NO idea was happening!

The class includes the Bigshot Scallop Square die which is super. You can get lots out of this die and it has a clear middle which is extremely useful.

This is a Scallop Square card and the middle is the same die as well just cut down.

You can also make a rectangle from the scallop square die as well. All the circles are the #2 circle die.

Right then on to the next job before my date with my hubbie tonight.
