Little Robin.

The bird punch is great but at this time of year you can make these cute little robins. The new self adhesive pearls are beautiful and there are some really tiny pearls which make great eyes.

Very Snowy December ..

Time flying by and still loads of christmas cards to do? me too.. I love this little christmas card. No layers so I won't get caught out with the postage and I love the simplicity and elegance of it. The wreath from Welcome Christmas stamped in Old Olive and the fabulous sentiment is from Heard from the Heart and stamped in Real Red. Expect to find this coming through you letter box if you are one of my customers, hopefully very soon..snow permitting.

This fabulous little gift holder was designed by the wonderful Jo Dumbleton and she was kind enough to share with a few of us at Convention. It uses the Delightful Decorations stamp set. See Stampin' Up! November/December Offer where if you buy the special bundle of the stamp set nad matching wheel Sparkle and Shine item no 125150 £30.45, you can a FREE spool of selected christmas ribbon . More details are on an earlier post of see the Stampin' Up UK website. Please note the the Delightful Decorations Bundle has changed due to the Ornament Punch being unavailable.

Welcome Christmas

Love this little card. I used as a base one of the note cards Stampin' Up! are now doing. This was one of my make takes this November.
Used the clear block to create the shadow stamp and the the lovely Welcome Christmas stamp set with the Christmas Cocoa paper and the FREE mistletoe ribbon.

Some cards to show you the Christmas Cocoa Paper

Here are some samples I have made using the fabulous Christmas Cocoa Papers. The 1 1/4" wide Red Riding Hood ribbon is from the exclusive ribbons you can get from the Christmas bundle offers.

I stamped the image from the Gifted set onto the new shimmer white cardstock. Really shimmery, love it.

New Product Blog Hop.

Welcome to the new product blog hop. If you have arrived here from Bekka blog, I'm sure you have already seen some fantastic project's. Else I hope you like my offerings.

First is my tri-shutter birthday card using the New Razzleberry as the card base. I've used the beautiful Cottage Wall Designer Papers and the little tags are embellished with matching Razzleberry spotted ribbon. You will notice the stamp set I used was the fabulous Vintage Vogue in Pale Plum and Rocked and Rolled in Razzleberry.

Next I tried something totally different. Jewellry. I'd seen these little scrabble tile necklaces on the web and decided I wanted to try.
So I got hold of a wooden scrabble tile and covered it with a beautiful little square of Cottage Wall DSP. I sealed it and then covered it with two thin coats of Crystal Effects and attached the bail. I was really pleased how it turned out.

My last project. At convention last year, we were shown a cute box that contained gift tags by the fabulous Pam Morgan. Well I made the box in the Razzleberry cardstock and the lid in the Cottage Wall Window Sheets. I made, yes, I made the four little guest soaps and they fitted perfectly inside. Embellished with the spotty razzleberry ribbon and some tiny tags.

I hope you have enjoyed your visit.

Next stop is Sandra's blog where you find some more inspiring creations. Enjoy.
