Star Light Star Bright



Here is another project I did with my Christmas classes recently...easy peasy! All you need is the star template, some Designer Series Paper (this is the almost retired Ski Slope DS Paper), and a bone folder. I have attached some twine for hanging, but this is optional.

If you would like the template for these stars, just email me.

December tomorrow, and the unveiling of the NEW MINI...keep posted!! :)

Happy crafting,
Anna :)

Just a quick reminder that there are only 3 days left to order from the current Spring Mini Catalogue.

From December 1st, the new Summer Mini Catalogue will be current, so keep an eye out for that.

If you would like a copy of this in your mailbox, just email me.

Recipe:
Stamp Set: Snow Swirled

Ink: Riding Hood Red, Basic Black
Other: Scallop Edge Punch, Scallop Circle Punch, Red Gingham Ribbon, sponge daubers

Another Box-in-a-Bag


Here's another version of the Box-in-a-Bag. I love them - they only use 1/2 a sheet of Designer Series paper, and about 1/2 a sheet of A4 cardstock and are so quick to make.

Try one for yourself. Click here for a step by step tutorial from Splitcoast Stampers.

If you want to make some Christmas bags using this Ski Slope paper, get in quick as you have only 7 DAYS left to order before the Spring Mini is no longer.

Happy crafting!

One Sheet Goody Box



Here's a version of a great little favour box I did recently at a couple of my workshops. It takes a bit of scoring and folding, but apart from that is quite a simple box.

Click here to check out Kerin's treat bag from where I got my inspiration. Check out her blog while you are there - one very creative lady!! :)

Recipe:
Stamp set: Christ is Born, Oval All
Card: Whisper White, Old Olive
Ink: Real Red, Old Olive
Other: Scallop Oval Punch, Large Oval Punch, Crop-a-Dile, Real Red Ribbon

Happy creating!

Christmas Punch Decorations


Here's a nifty idea for some cute little Christmas decorations. Simple enough that even your children could help make some themselves.

All you need is:
Scallop circle punch, DS paper (double sided), thin cord/twine, beads.

I am not sure where I got this inspiration so cannot give that person the credit. If that's you let me know! :)

Another version of this would be using the Scallop Oval Punch...also very nice.

Happy creating!

Christmas-y Box in a Bag



These 'Box-in-a-Bag' creations were pretty popular a while back. They are great for quick personal gift packaging.

Here's one using the groovy Ski Slope Designer Series paper from the Spring Mini (which, by the way, has only 2 weeks left of existence!)

If you would like to try one of these for yourself, click here.

Happy Christmas Creating!

Christ is Born Christmas Card



Thought I better put some Christmas card examples up here...the month of November is already accelerating at a great rate!

Note: the Crystal Effects will change the colour of your inked image slightly as you can see on this card. If you don't want this to occur, use clear Embossing Powder instead.

Project Recipe:
Stamp Set: Christ is Born
Card: Glossy White, Whisper White, Real Red
Ink: Chocolate Chip, Old Olive, Real Red
Other: Real Red grosgrain ribbon, Crystal Effects, 1/2" Circle Punch

Happy Christmas creating!
