More Christmas Gift Bags and cute 3D Tree Cards

Some more Christmas paper Gift Bags for you from the Holly Berry Bouquet papers.  These have been dressed up for Christmas, but I have used the ditsy little flower designs from the paper so could easily be made up as Birthday gifting too!  Great for small toiletries, chocolates or jewellery gifting.

and here are the photos of the cards from the Noel Garland workshop where we made three simple cards from the Jolly Holiday Papers (now retired).  These quick easy cards are made with papers and punching and decorated with lovely satin ribbon to make them look more luxurious.

Finally, some more fab Christmas cards made using the Pennants Builder Punch and Pennants Parade Stamps as featured in my last Blog post.  These are inspired from the last training session where they were demonstrated by one of the lovely ladies on the Inspiration Station tables.  They look great and can be folded flat to post too!

Stuck for Christmas gifts for Crafty friends, why not gift them something from the catalogue? To Place an order, email me at

Pennants Builder Happy Christmas Card

What a fun night last night making Christmas garlands and cards with everyone, I can't believe Christmas is just round the corner, but it certainly feels more Christmas with all this Christmas crafting.

One of the cards I made recently is made from the Pennants Parade stamp set and the Pennants Builder punch.  It is fabulously easy to make your own cards, scrapbook pages or items decorated with pennants/banners and I used it here on a simple tri-fold card with lettering to make it a Happy Christmas.

It's a great set and I have seen many ideas using it and I love the bright colours for this one with the added gems of course to give it some sparkle.

Gifting for Christmas

What a busy week!  I have been busy busy busy working away on crafting for workshops and Christamas activities.  I will try and post some more pictures as I get time, but here is a gift bag I made for a recent workshop with the lovely scrapbooking club who invited me along to their day of crafting.

It was made from the lovely festive Holly Berry Bouquet papers and dressed up with a Fun Flower and handles made from the Top Note Big Shot cutting dies.  The papers have festive designs, but also include some lovely designs to be used all year round.  This bag looks so pretty it is a present in itself!

Second Chance - Noel Garland Workshop Thursday 17th November 2011

Another chance to make the gorgeous Noel garland as I still have some of the materials available and I know some of you could not make the original date. I will provide all materials for the evening to make the garland along with some additional make-and-takes.

The evening will be full of crafting, fun and chat and better still you will be taking home your very own garland that everyone will be envious of.  The night will include learning techniques for working with exciting products and what's more you will also go home with a bag of goodies to add to your crafting supplies.  As there are some lovely materials provided the cost of the workshop will be £12.

The 17th is fast approaching and it will soon be time to dust off the jingle bells and glitter balls for festive decorating, so let me know by 10th November if you are interested.
