Merry Christmas!

This was my Christmas card this year. I made and sent out 250 of these babies, so I needed to keep it pretty simple! Using paper that was already glimmer-y for the star and paper that was already embossed for the banner really helped to cut down my workload!

I went with Mint Macaron, Whisper White and gold for my colour scheme. It's all sparkly in real life, thanks to a spatter of gold Wink of Stella. To get this effect, squeeze the Wink of Stella pen until you can see the ink filling the barrel, and then use a bone folder to tap on the barrel. I laid out 8 cards at a time inside a box, and spattered them all at once!

I'm going to be cooking up a storm in the kitchen over the next few days, so I'll take this opportunity to say Merry Christmas! I hope you are spending it surrounded by family and friends

Merry Christmouse Boxes

I always like to give everyone a little gift at my team Christmas Party. This is what I made this year...a little box of chocolates with a matching mousie tag for all my Anony-mouses. I found some chocolates to match the sparkly glitter ribbon....all crafters know that co-ordination is equally, if not more, important than taste!

Joyful Nativity Stamp-a-Stack

I just realised that I somehow neglected to post this Stamp-a-Stack class we did a while ago using the Joyful Nativity stamp set. This stamp set is one of the ones featured in the Annual Catalogue. It's easy to lose focus on those once the beautiful Holiday Catalogue is released!
My non-traditional colour combo is Pool Party, Bermuda Bay and Smoky Slate (love!). They are all sparkly in real life, thanks to the Wink of Stella glitter brush!

Christmas Treats

I love to hand out little Christmas treats to family, friends, and my lovely customers and class attendees! Here are 3 different treats that don't cost the earth and all have the cute factor in spades!
I found these Santa coins in Woolworths, and was delighted to find how perfectly they fit our 2"x8" Cello bags.
The 2"x8" cello bags are also a perfect fit for "Reindeer Noses" (8 maltesers and a Darrel Lea BB). On the back of my label it reads "no reindeer were harmed in the making of this product" hee hee!

The shiny nose is made with Red Glimmer paper
TIP: if you use the 'foot' of the Cookie Cutter punch to punch from a strip of glimmer paper, it's the perfect fit for a nose.
My final little gift was these cute little Ferrero mugs (you can find directions here):

So cute! ...and very quick and easy, once you get the knack!

Merry Medley Stamp-a-Stack

This set of cards were made in my final class of this year. I've used classic Christmas colours of red and white (with just a touch of green)
The Merry Medley stamp does most of the work here, and I've just added some detail with the Holly Jolly Layers stamps, pretty ribbon and some holly and bows (made using the Holly Berry builder punch)

TIP: highlight your holly and bows using fine-tip glue. It dries shiny and glossy in just 30 minutes or so!

Candy Cane Lane Box of Tags

My final Gift Tag Project is a Box of Tags. You can make the box and 4 tags from one A4 piece of Crumb Cake cardstock.
To decorate the box and tags, I've used Candy Cane Lane Designer Series Paper.
To make the box, cut A4 cardstock to 21cm x 19.5cm. In Portrait orientation, score 4cm from each side. In landscape orientation, score at 4cm, 9.5cm, 13.5cm and 19cm. You should end up with something that looks like this:
Cut along the bold lines, and cut off the shaded areas. Adhere side flaps first to form the box, then the lid flaps over the top for a snug fit. A banner folded over the top for decoration looks really cute:

Use leftover 21cm x 10.2cm cardstock to make 4 tags 10.2cm x 4.9cm. Punch using Scalloped Tag Topper Punch, and decorate using Designer Series Paper:

Here are the Designer Series Paper measurements
Box lid: Top 11cm x 5cm, Sides 5cm x 1.7cm (x2), Front 11cm x 1.7cm
Tags: 4.9cm x 4cm (x4)
Early Espresso cardstock: Banner 9.5cm x 4.9cm, 4 strips 4.9cm x 1cm
