Christmas Appreciation 2014....

Hello Everyone,

It was my Christmas Appreciation events last week for my Stamp Class Ladies.

These were the gifts I made for everyone.  I used the Cheerful Tags Stamp Set with the matching tag punch.  The stampin up wrapping paper has come in very useful, the Winter catalogue is still LIVE for a couple of weeks but only until stocks last, so be quick if you fancy anything.

I used the lined bags on page 10 for my edible gift of gingerbread biscuits, 10 bags for £5.50 perfect for keeping edible gifts fresh and sealed.  I covered the pegs in the main catalogue to match my tags.

I will miss this cherry cobbler sheer linen ribbon it ties gorgeous bows, its on page 7.

 We always make something easy for my Appreciation days, so I chose to use the curvy keepsake die to make these cute fun gift boxes.

Right then off to finish up with the huge washing pile my son has brought home from University.

Its fantastic to be all back under the one roof for Christmas Break.  Not looking forward to him going back but he is really having a great time and enjoying his course which is brilliant news.

He is enjoying having a clean bathroom, a flat of 8 boys leaves the imagination with horror storys.  One lad washes his clothes in the bath, so hence the rest of them use the shower! hee hee

Festival of Trees Scrapbook Club....

Hello Everyone,

It was our last Scrapbook Club of 2014 last night, We made a Christmas spread ready for Christmas in just 4 weeks today!

I really enjoyed making these pages.  The ladies seemed to like them as well.  

I used the Festival of Trees & December Wonder stamp sets.

The colour combination is Smoky Slate, Lost Lagoon, Soft Sky and Pear Pizzazz.

Its hard to get a clear photo in the page protectors, so I hope you can see clear enough.

The letters were cut in the silver foil cardstock, completely run out of silver now!

They were layered onto 1 3/8" circles punched in soft sky and mounted onto the Label Bracket punched in lost lagoon.  I added a few snowflakes and silver sequins on the popped up letters.

Dazzling diamond glitter card was used for the scallop border.
The photo mats are for 4" x 4" photo's.

I used the divided page protectors for the opposite side.

The December Wonder images fit in the Project Life Framelit set.  Lovely frame was stamped in smoky slate and four tiny rhinestones were added to the dots.  The sentiments are lost lagoon.

The numbers were cut in silver foil and the 4" x 3" smoky slate mats were stamped with the large snowflake in the December Wonder Stamp set.  The smaller snowflake is also from this stamp set.
Its only available while stocks last.

 The bottom two mats are 6" x 4" soft sky and then the pear pizzazz was torn to form the hills.
Tear towards you to get the nice look.

Right time to come up with more pages for next year 2015!

I hope you have enjoyed my Scrapbook Pages in 2014.

White Christmas Stamp Class

Morning Everyone,

Brrr!  Its very cold here today.  

We used the White Christmas Stamp set for yesterday's Stamp Class.  The images are really great, You'll love coming up with lots of different ways of using them.

I went for a Real Red, Soft Sky and a hint of Garden Green for my colour combination with the mix of the Nordic Noel Dsp Paper pack.  

We made this Shaker Card.  We had lots of fun making this card.  Thanks Ladies.


We used one of the ready scored Take Out Boxes in the Winter Catalogue with the diddie snowman on the belly band.

A Joy Fold Card.  This is a lovely sentiment to have at christmas time.

The images build up a scene really quickly.  Great bargain at £13.95 for the whole set.

OH! What stories were told yesterday about Deers which were sparked off by this sparkly deer card.

Anyway its Scrapbook Club today,  I really enjoyed doing these cards,
If you want to play along the instructions are on the right.

Wondrous Wreath Stamp Class

Evening Everyone,

We used the Wondrous Wreath Bundle for today's Stamp Class.

I really love this stamp set, it looks great stamped directly onto a single layer of cardstock or cut out with the matching framelits.

You'll find the NOEL and JOY framelits so useful, I've used the framelits in this bundle so much, see older posts for more ideas.

We made a selection of cards, which one is a gift and a card combined being a Calendar as well as a Card.

The matching gift box is a useful size and you only need one sheet of cardstock.

The instructions are on the right if you want to play along,

Thanks for looking,

Endless Wishes

Endless Wishes for Christmas!  The font is really lovely in this Stamp Set.

We used Smoky Slake, Lost Lagoon, Soft Sky with a hint of Red.

Look at all these different ways of  celebrating Christmas.

I used the corner rounder on the layers with the lost lagoon stitched ribbon on the corners.

This is a really flat card which would be ideal for cutting postage costs, Yet still has the bling with the rhinestones.

The snowflakes look lovely stamped for a background layer.  I used the wide oval and decorative label punches for the sentiment.

Try these in different combinations of colours.

Ornamental Stamp Class

 We used the Ornamental Pine Stamp Set for this weeks Stamp Class.

The bauble is gorgeous in this stamp set, very ornate. 

We used the Oval Framelits in a mixture of different ways.  

I used the Trim the Tree paper stack which has the Cherry cobbler, Early Espresso, Garden Green and Sahara Sand Colour combination.

The Cherry Cobbler Sheer Linen Ribbon is gorgeous, I wish we had this ribbon in all our colours.

The Gift Box holds a mini size Bottle of Wine.  These boxes fit lots of different gifts and are perfect for this time of year.

The interlocking ovals make a different look card.

The Oval Framelits make ideal tags for Christmas.

If you want to play along the instructions are on the right hand side.

Inspirations for Star Framelits....

Today I have lots of inspiration for you using the Star Framelits and the stamp sets that fit them so well.
I used the Many Merry Stars stamp set for the above cards.  My downline Debi showed us some Black and Silver Christmas Cards, which were amazing.  I chose a Navy, Smoky Slate and Silver for my colour combination.

You can purchase the stamp set via my online store or if you would like to collect it, Drop me an email. Amazing Price of £13.95 for all the images below.

I used Silver Encore ink for the image in the middle of the tree punch and the outline on the star.

The same image fits perfectly in the points of the largest star framelit.

The star border punch and star embossing folder was used for texture on this card.

Silver glitter card was used under the Night of Navy layer here.

For a different look without the glitter but embossed with gold embossing powder, is the Cherry cobbler, Brushed Gold and White colour combination.

The gold ribbon has white stitching.

A frame was made with two different size star framelits.  The magnetic platform is perfect for this.

Again the star border punch and star embossing folder was used for this version.

Very simple card yet with the snowflake embellishment, it looks luxurious.

Silver embossing powder was used for the stars with a few rhinestones.

A stack of the stars with a hint of Lost Lagoon!

I hope you are inspired to make some Christmas Cards Today, Get ahead now!

There's only 6 more weekends before Christmas Day!
