Welcome to my blog! You may have come from Sharni’s blog or be starting here with me. I’m excited to be a part of tonight’s ESAD 2018 Holiday Catalogue blog hop!
I’m not only a papercraft, but a lover of many other crafts!! One of my all time favourites is cross stitch so I was excited to see the Cross Stitch Christmas stamp set.
Here the latest cross stitch that I finished earlier this year.
Using my Stamparatus, I stamped the 3 trees in Shaded Spruce, Granny Apple Green and Real Red. It does take a little bit of practice to get the stamps lined up nicely. I cut it out with an Oval Stitched Shape framelits and then a crumb cake oval.
I embossed the Granny Apple Green with the Quilt Top embossing folder. Don’t you just love this folder!
I stamped the sentiment in Shaded Spruce and punched it out with the Classic Label punch. I added a piece of Polka Dot ribbon and Real Red Solid Ribbon.
I just love Christmas!!! I can’t wait to get into making Christmas cards!
Head on over to visit Lou and check out her gorgeous project!

Stampin’ Up! Product List
Can you believe that this is our last hop and challenge for the year!! A big thank you for hopping with us over the year. We really appreciate your comments and for joining in with our challenges.
For our last challenge, we are casing any project from the 2017 Holiday Catalogue.
There are so many lovely projects in this catalogue that it was hard to choose. But one of my favourite sets has been the Christmas Quilt bundle. I’m really sad that it is not carrying over.
I decided to case the Red peace card in the centre of the page 4.
The Quilted Christmas DSP is so lovely, I’ve really struggled to cut it! But I did manage a few cuts for these cards!! I decided to make 2, one more of a direct case with a few changes, then the other with more.
I hope you are inspired to do some “quilting” with this bundle!! But don’t miss out as it will be gone soon!!! Just click on the link to go to my online store, here.
Next up is my lovely friend, Rose. I can’t wait to see what gorgeousness she has created this week.
Make sure you share your creations from the 2017 Holiday Catalogue on our Facebook group.
Merry Christmas and Happy Stamping!!
Stampin’ Up! Product List
I have dabbled in lots of crafts including embroidery, cross stitch, folk art, stamping, scrapbooking and patchwork over the years. I was crusing around Pinterest the other day (don’t you just love it!! I am addicted!!) and found a card that looks like a wedding ring quilt!! Turns out this gorgeous card was featured on Mary Fish’s blog, Stampin’ Pretty, which I also love. The card was made by Ellen Smallwood.
I recently purchased the lattice die and this is a great way to showcase it! Here’s my version of Ellen’s card.
Here’s a close up of the “wedding ring quilt”. I have “quilted” it with the new Lacy Brocade embossing folder from the Holiday catalogue.
