It’s the last one!

It’s the last Christmas post of 2014!! Can you believe that Christmas is finished? I can’t!! The year has gone so quickly!!

So here is my last Christmas project for this year. I was asked to come to the local Girls’ Brigade and do a card and a box with the Senior girls for their break up party.

So of course, I had to use the fabulous Gift Box punch board!! I love making boxes with this board. You can whip them up so quickly!!

I also used my favourite stamp set, Mingle all the Way with the Banner Framelits.

Now, I did colour mine using Blendabilities but the girls used my markers. (I’m not that trusting!!)

Doesn’t it look cute!! They used them to do a secret santa present to each other.

I hope you had a Merry Christmas and had a wonderful day celebrating the birth of Jesus.

Happy Stamping

It’s time for a change

From Christmas cards, that is!!!!

I have been making lots of Christmassy things for ages and I am slightly over it!! I have a dear friend having a birthday this week, so I wanted to make a special card for her. I have to say I really enjoyed making something else!!

I wanted to use the Corner Garden stamp set and my blendabilities. Honestly, it’s been ages since I used them!!

So a quick search on Pinterest found this lovely card by It’s a Stamp Thing. I love the way she uses only a portion of the stamp.

As my friend loves anything purple, I had to use Blackberry Bliss. This is such a gorgeous deep purple. The photos definitely don’t do it justice. I embossed the crumb cake cardstock with white embossing powder. This looked lovely all on it’s own. I will have to try it with coloured cardstock as well. I then coloured it with Old Olive for the leaves, and then Calypso Coral, Daffodil Delight, Rich Razzleberry and Night of Navy.

I hope she likes it!!

Swapping with my Team

One of the great parts of being part of a team of demonstrators is the opportunity to do swaps. We try to do them monthly but sometimes life gets in the way and we do them less frequently. But in celebration of the Holiday Catalogue coming out, we recently did a holiday catty swap.

I love getting happy mail (so much better than bills!!) so I always enjoy being a part of swaps. It’s also interesting to see what others are making and sharing ideas.

So I wanted to use the White Christmas stamp set as it is very cute. I was inspired by Yvonne Jackson, here. I think the little bear is my favourite stamp in this set!! And did you notice the snowflakes!! LOVE!!! And of course, a swap wouldn’t be complete without using Blendies!!!

I always forget that whilst I love receiving swaps, making lots of the same card is not quite as fun!

What a pretty bauble

I don’t know about you but I love a pretty, colourful, sparkly bauble on my Christmas tree.  And if I could somehow make this stamped bauble into a real one, it would be on my tree in a flash!!  I’m speaking of the Christmas Bauble stamp from the Holiday catalogue, of course!!

I knew as soon as I saw this stamp that I needed to have it!!  It’s also great for colouring with Blendabilties (fancy that!!)

I found this great sketch at Mojo Monday and thought it would suit.


I used the Trim the Tree Designer Series Paper Stack as my inspiration for the colours.  I used Whisper White as the base cardstock and Garden Green as the next layer.  I used a piece of Gold Satin ribbon as a touch of luxury.  Then I got stuck into colouring with my blendies!!  Love, love!!!

To create the sentiment, I stamped the image from the Good Greetings stamp set and used the Modern label punch to punch it out.  To mat it, I used the Decorative label punch and cut it in half.

If you like the greeting stamp, you can earn this set for free by hosting a qualifying workshop up to 31 October.  Contact me at to arrange a date.

Happy Stamping!!
