Christmas class....

Here are some photos of a class that I did recently. All the girls could not believe how easy the projects were. If you are interested in a kit, let me know by sending me an email at mmu61048@bigpond.net.au and I will get back to you. Enjoy having a look at some of the projects that were made.
I just love clear cards, although they look so much better in real life. We used the Scribble This stamp set with stazon in jet black, real red and old olive inks, markers and card stock. Whisper white card stock to write on and always artichoke ribbon for the bow. To finish off, a large gold brad for the layered flowers and a stamped envelope to match.

This card is so pretty with the pearl beads glued on with crystal effects. Again we used stazon jet black and close to cocoa inks. Chocolate chip, close to cocoa and very vanilla card stock, cream organdy ribbon tied in a bow. I also used my cuttlebug, embossing folder and nestabilities.

This is a meander album that I found on splitcoast stampers and dressed it up with some ribbon, tags that pull out, dashing paper, co-ordinating card stock and hodgepodge hardware to finish off the belly band. The large oval, large circle and designer label punches were also used. The splitcoast stampers version has coasters as covers, but I played around a bit and found a way to make this cute 3in X 3in album without them. Would you believe, 1 piece of 12 X 12 card stock to make this album and some leftovers for the tags and belly band. There are also tags that pull out on some off the side pages as well. I should of added a photo to show you but never mind.
Well, had better get busy on putting in some photos of the family and make a box for the album so it is ready for Christmas. Another prezzie covered but many more to go!!!

Until next time xoxox

Their first Christmas together

This would have to be one of my most adored photos of Courtney and Jacob together for their first Christmas shoot. I love it so much, that I had to hanging it on the wall for everyone to see. If only they could stay this cute forever. It always puts a smile on my face when I think back to all those Christmas mornings or should I say dawns, that Andrew and myself were woken up after not getting to bed late, for you know why reasons, to see the excitement on their little faces that Santa has been. I don't think I can wait for Christmas this year, it is always so much fun Christmas morning even if the sun has not come up yet.

I though that I should share with you a make and take I did a few weeks ago for a Stampin Up workshop. I used whisper white, real red and old olive card stock, real red and old olive ink and an old olive brad to finish off. Very quick and easy.

Until next time xoxox....

Don't forget Christmas is almost here!!!!

I just love these papers from the Dashing range, they go so well with real red and old olive card stock.

A square metal edge tag with a centre of old olive double sided paper from the designer series was added to tag and then crossed stitched to the corner of the photo mat. Some stamped and cutout layered flowers with mini brads(Queen and Co.) to resemble poinsettias for the Christmas themed 12 x 12 pages. I added some bling(rhinestone brads) on a pull out journaling tag.

Some always artichoke ribbon on the stamped image from the Season of Joy set that was coloured with the real red and old olive stampin markers.

Lets hope that I break my habit for making pages and not putting any photos on them. Help remind me in the New Year as I should have lots of photos from our Christmas holiday this year.
Until next time xoxo.......
