Today I am sharing a few projects I have that have been keeping me busy.
Just loved the fabric and wanted to play with HST.
You may recall I made this one a little while ago using the same fabric from Emma Jean Jansen’s Ella Blue range.
I have made a few Christmas cards which I will link up to the current challenge at Scrapbook Boutique here
I have just gone with the general Christmas theme! hope that is ok.
Love the font of Mama Elephant Jingle Greetings and the PTI penguin is pretty cute too. I added him to a drift of snow using SU Thoughtful branches in grey ink topped with dazzling details. I know we don’t have snow in Aus at Christmas.
Until next time
I have a few things to share today.
Ms 10 helped me last week sort through my stash and we found a few gaps. Mainly due to the fact I make as I need. So I have been making a couple of things over the last few days to fill those gaps.
And doing so I am linking up to a few challenges as well
This first card I made in two colour ways using a range of stars from Annabelle Stamps Boy’s Party, Uniko Balloon Bash, Inspired by Stamping Build a Stocking, Papertrey Ink Star Prints and sentiment from Papertrey Ink.
I am linking upto the challenge at Pinterst Inspired Challenges here
and the next card I am linking up to the challenge at Scrapbook Boutique here
I stamped my image from Stamp It and mounted onto chocolate coloured card stock. The pattern paper is from a Kaisercraft pad along with the tag I stamped the sentiment on. The sentiment is from PTI World’s Greatest.
I also have a little update on my jumper.
The pattern I am using can be found here and here.
I am knitting in Bendigo Woollen Mills Athena yarn I purchased last year. It is lovely and soft.
Thank you for getting all the way here.
It is a long post today.
Today’s card I am linking up to the following challenges
Uniko – Masculine here
Through the craftroom door – Anything goes here
Loves Rubber stamps here – Use a die cut
And here is my card
I created my own patterned paper using Uniko Nautical Treasures in SU River Rock and Smoky Slate inks. The main image from Uniko Nautical Treasures is stamped with SU Smoky slate ink. I mounted with SU night of navy cardstock. I used Mama Elephant Sew Fancy Dies to create waves, pattern beside the main image and the stitching around the sentiment panel. I also used Inspired by Stamping Fancy Label dies 3 and a 2″ circle punch for the sentiment panel. The sentiment is from PTI Star prints stamped in SU night of Navy ink. The sentiment panel was attached to some double sided adhesive paper I have had for ages and attached to some fun foam to give dimension. The twine is from Annabelle Stamps.

Hi There. I got a little crafty time last week end – I know it is nearly the weekend again. I got round to taking a few pics earlier today which I will hopefully get to share over the next few days.
Today I am sharing a set of gift tags I made using a mix of sets. I am linking up to the challenge at Crafty Hazelnut’s Christmas
I used PTI Polka dot Parade #9, Holiday Cheer, Star Prints, Stocking Prints, Communique Curves, Kaisercraft Merry Christmas and My Cute Stamps Let it Snow. The tags were made by using the small strip left after I have cut A3 cardstock down to make my square cards then rounding the corners with my corner punch and punching a hole for the twine. I used SU Pretty in Pink, Tempting Truquoise, So Saffron, Certainly Celery and PTI Classic Kraft and Lavender Moon inks to stamp the images. The twine is Blossom and mint.
Here are individual images
a little pink
lavender snow flakes
I like the combination of turquoise and green.

Sorry for lack of posts this week. Been a bit busy. Can you believe this is the only thing I have made all week and it really took just a few minutes.
I made this card for a great friend who came to support me (and the other creative people) at my recent venture into craft markets. I used AnnaBelle stamps Sentimental Bluebells, SU ink and Fiskars punch along with AnnaBelle stamps Chilli digi paper.
Here are a few of the cards I made for the day.
The packs of cards weren’t popular (only sold one pack of 5) but the upside is I don’t have to make any to send to family and I have some left for teacher presents. I also made some little gift tags which seemed to be more popular. My textiles also did well – so all in all a good experience.
If you have reached this far in this long make up post I’ll share a few things we have been doing this week. Now that 3 birthdays are over we have started Christmas shopping before Miss 8 finishes school next week. We have had 2 nights of school Christmas dance concerts (only had to add tinsel to a skirt for this one), week 2 of a new job, tonight we have an award ceremony for Mr 14 (not sure what for yet!) and also today Miss 17 had 4 wisdom teeth out. I’m sure I’m not the only one at this time of the year very time poor.
What is everyone planning for Christmas? I have 25 people Christmas day and haven’t organised a thing yet.
If you have got this far – Thank you for hanging in there!
I’ll hopefully be back soon with somethings to share. I have received some nice new sets in the last few weeks and haven’t opened them yet.
