11 October 2013 – Joy to the World, Christmas is coming!!

It’s only 75 days until Christmas!! Does the thought of that make you panic!! I have to look for a new tree this year as my kitty cats had fun with the old one and we had to throw it away after Christmas last year. It’s so hard to find just the right tree!!

In the spirit of Christmas decorations, Stampin’ Up! have a great kit in the latest Seasonal catalogue for making gorgeous banners. We have the Build a Banner Simply Created Kit which includes 18 blank canvas paper pennants (6 each of 3 designs), 2.7m of jute twine, alphabet and image stencils and a Stampin’ Spritzer for only $34.95.

Then there is the Chistmas Banner Simply Created Accessory kit which includes gorgeous bits and bobs for you to decorate your banner. This kit is $16.95.

I had a day off on Tuesday so I whipped out my hot glue gun and got crafting. I found that I got a better result using a sponge dauber rather than spritzing. It was also less messy!! You should have seen my hands!!

I used just about everything in the accessory kit. I especially love the Bermuda Bay/Pool Party ribbon!!

18 September 2013 – One stamp, Two Stunners!!!

I am loving the all the Christmas stamps in the Seasonal Catalogue!! There are lots of great new kits to make sending your Christmas cards easy. I really like the Merry Little Christmas Simply Created Card kit. It includes just about everything you need to make 8 gorgeous cards to impress your friends with. It has cardstock cards, envelopes, envelope liners, die-cut designer series paper and cardstock accents, buttons and baker’s twine. All you need to add is the matching stamp set, Merry Little Christmas, and ink.

We did these at Stamp Club last week and the girls were impressed at how easy it was to put together.

I also wanted to showcase another card using the same stamp set. I found this card on Pinterest by Kerry Bray. I love the different textures on it.

And don’t you just love the Chevron ribbon!! I have to confess that I have a number of rolls of it in different colours (and 2 of the one colour by accident!!)
