Oh' Christmas Tree, Oh' Christmas Tree . . . . . . .

I have wanted to make this for ages and have not had the time. Finally it is made! I cased this out of the Ideas Book & Catalogue. Lots of Gold Smooch Spritz which I have to say is not easy to use, I find the spray bottles way to small, and you can't seem to get it to spray in the direction you want. I got there in the end though.

Ginger Bread People!

I have had these Ginger Bread Cut Outs for months, and have finally had time to make them up. They do look quite cute. The shapes are from Kaiser. I used a collection of retired designer papers, trying to use up all my stash.

Birthday Gift Backpack & Card

I made this very cute backpack for my niece's birthday, and filled it with chocolates. It holds quite a lot. If you would like to make one of these you will find the Tutorial on Becky Roberts, Inking Idaho Blog.
I have used the the Just Add Cake DSP which I really did not like much until I made this. I like it now. Isn't always the way. Other cardstock used was Baja Breeze, Peach Parfait, Whisper White. Bring on the Cake stamp set. Whisper White Taffeta Ribbon, Peach Parfait Stitched Poly Ribbon, Subtles Designer Buttons, Rhinestones, Decorative Label Punch, Scallop Circle Die.

My niece was quite chuffed with it, especially the chocolates inside!

Xmas Decoration Box

How do you like this little project. I had a lot of fun making this one. Although the decoration was a bit tricky and very gluey, glue everywhere!

Whisper White Cardstock for the Box. Covered with a retired DSP from Stampin Up and the name of it escapes for the moment. Window Sheets, Vintage Brads, Ribbon, Snow Flake Punch and lots of Glitter! Hope you like it. If you would like to make one of these I found the tutorial on Scor-Pal's site.

Mojo Monday #217

Finally got time to enter a challenge, just not enough hours in the day! 
I have used the Scallop Square die & Crumb Cake for the card base. I have then stamped Greeting Card Kids onto some watercolour cardstock and used Aqua Painters to colour in with. Trimmings are Vintage Lace and Baja Breeze Seam Binding. The DSP is Bella Bleu a retired Stampin Up! pack. I am trying to use up all my retired DSP Papers so I can make way for some new ones! Hope you like my take on this challenge.

"Flashing" Hooray!!!!!

Finally after looking for around 18 months, not continually, but every now and then when I see a project made out of flashing or shim I get the urge to try and find where to buy it. I received a gorgeous present made out of flashing from a Secret Sister Swap (thankyou so much Sharyn Corsi) it was a candle holder using the Flower Folds Die. So I got the urge again to go looking for some 'Flashing' and I found it! finally! with no help from the staff at Masters a new hardware conglomerate that has just opened at Nerang. So I have made some more candle holders, and a gorgeous Xmas Tree ornament using the Petal Cone Die! I don't think I will ever make another one as my hands and fingers are covered in cuts, should have worn gloves. I was just too excited lol! So hope you like my 'flashing projects'.
