Merry Christmas & Happy New Year........

Well this will be my last post until early Jan 2009, as I will be on holidays with my family. Can't wait, only 3 more days of work left and then relaxation as the crazy season draw to an end. So have yourself a Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year.

Here are two cards that I have made for family;

I saw on splitcoast stampers a wonderful idea to stamp onto tiles. So off I went to a local tile shop and purchased some stone tiles to stamp on with stazon and then colour in the image with stampin write markers. To finish off, I sealed each tile with a spray on sealant and there you have it, a coaster, table cloth weight or even a something to hang on the wall. The first one is for my wonderful friend and up line, Kim as she love nativities.

This design was for the Jacob's teacher and the wonderful ladies in the front office who took care of Jacob throughout the year, with monitoring his blood sugars, supervising his injections and helping him when he had numerous hypos/hyper etc... whilst at school (Jacob was diagnosed with Juvenile Diabetes (type 1) on the 20th of April this year);

This design was for my wonderful and very supportive friends, that I could not have made it through the year without them. The photo does not show up very clear, but I have stamped French script onto the background to add more dimension;

Last of all is a Star album that I ran as a class and I must say myself that the embossed photo mats really bring it to life. I just love my cuttlebug and folders, if you don't have one get one!!!

Until next time,

I Forgot!!!

I forgot to mention that you can click on the pictures to see a more detailed look at my crafts, so please do and let me know what you think.

Bye for know......

I've been very busy!!!

I have been so busy with planning and of course participating in festive activities and Jacob's end of year concert, making costumes for him to wear. He played two parts in his school plays; a farmer in one and then a goose in another. What a great performance he did, I was so proud of him. So that is what I have been up to for the last week apart from the usual of going to work. Oh, I forgot, the concert was fantastic and the praise that the children got from their teachers was absolutely gold. A big thank you to all their hard work over the year.

Back to scrapin, when I have a Stampin Up workshop I take along my scrap bin. It is so useful for carrying supplies and then for make'n'takes, to help keep the cleaning up quick and easy as everyone seems to put their off cuts or scraps in the bin. When it is not out and about with me, I have it hanging in my scrap room for me to use.

Here are a few cards that I made using my cuttlebug to emboss with and add texture to these 3x3 cards.
Until next time xoxox
