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

CTC13 – Back to where it all began!!

Well, it’s finally back to where the addiction first started!! Making cards!!! For the last few weeks, I’ve been making boxes and tags (which has been fun) but now it’s time to get back into cards.

I have to say that I am in denial that we are nearing the end of October and getting closer to Christmas!! But I am making progress on my Christmas cards.

This week at Caseing the Catty Challenges, we are casing Cards from the Holiday Catalogue. I have decided to case a tag and turn it into a card. I’ve recently purchased the Mingle All the Way stamp set and haven’t had a chance to use it yet. So when I saw the tag on page 17 of the AU/NZ catalogue, I knew that was the project for me this week.

So here is the tag from the catty.

And here is my version.


I used some Cherry Cobbler Dazzling Details to highlight the berries and add a touch of bling. I love using the Trim the Tree DSP stack as it has lots of different patterns you can use. So versatile!! And of course, I had to use my Blendies!! Love em!!
