12 Days of Christmas Day 5

Welcome back again to my 12 Days of Christmas Series.  I was hoping to have posted every day during December but it has been a very busy couple of weeks with Concerts at School and my daughter had her Year 6 dance last night.  So much going on this December.

On Friday night our team had a Christmas party and we do a secret santa gift.  I made this gift bag using the gorgeous fun paper Santa’s Workshop Specialty Designer Series Paper.

I used the ribbon that is also in the suite of products.  The bag is fairly easy to make using 2 sheets of 12×12 paper scoring on 3 sides at 3″ and the fourth side at 2″

I made a tag to go with the gift bag also using the Santa’s Workshop suite.  I just love using this suite of products as it is quite whimsical.

12 Days of Christmas – Day 4

Thanks for joining me on my 12 Days of Christmas Series.  Today is day 4 and I have a gorgeous product for you.
This project was originally designed by Intertwyned Designs in the UK.  I loved it so much that I have re-created it in the Santa’s Workshop Designer Series paper.

I have used the Simply Scored Board and the Envelope Punch Board to make the little bon bons.  The video to make the bon bons are here.

The box is made using 2 sheets of 12 X 12 card stock but you can find the tutorial here.

These are such great little projects to make as a little gift for a teacher with a couple of chocolates inside or rather than buying the christmas crackers from the shop, why not make these for your table this Christmas?

12 Days of Christmas – Day 3

Welcome to day 3 of My 12 Days of Christmas series.  This project was created out of necessity for a gift for some older nieces that are harder to buy for.

I have made some bath bombs that the girls can use out of essential oils and other chemical free products.  I also used some food colouring to die them a mint green to keep in the Christmas theme.  The Essential oils I’ve used is Young Living oils. I have found that these oils are of the highest quality and I use them in my everyday life as well.  If you’d like to know more about Young Living essential oils then please get in touch.

The tag was made using the Santa’s Workshop Specialty designer series paper.  This paper is so whimsical.  Some of the sheets have some white flocking on them which makes them extra special.








I’ve cut out one of the little elves from the DSP to add a little whimsy onto the tag as well.  Its super cute.  The ribbon is gorgeous and is from the same suite of products.

All the products I’ve used are listed below along with some complimenting products.

12 Days of Christmas – Day 2

Welcome to Day 2 of my 12 Days of Christmas!

Today I’m sharing a gift that we’re giving to my eldest Daughters Flute Teacher.  She has been teaching Lizzie for 4 years.  Lizzie is going to high school next year so there will be a change of music teachers.  I am so thankful to her teacher for the guidance and patience with Lizzie.

I made a set of 10 Christmas gift tags that she can use on gifts.  I also made a little box for the tags to go in.  I used the Santa’s Workshop Specialty Designer Series Paper which is such a gorgeous pack of paper.








The Year-End Closeout Sale is on now as well so grab a bargain before your favourite products are gone for good.

12 Days of Christmas – Day 1

Welcome to my 12 Days of Christmas!

Last year I did this and wanted to do it again this year.  A group of posts that can help you with your Christmas shopping and gift giving.

This first project was an idea I’ve seen around using the Santa’s Bags from the Holiday Catalogue.  I have uses Momento ink to stamp with as I was using photopolymer stamps.  Stazon ink would be permanent but I really don’t like to use it on my photopolymer stamps.  I haven’t coloured Santa in as I know that the colour will bleed and I really like the look of the black.

The bag & tag were given to me at Stamp camp with a prize patrol inside, however it wasn’t stamped.  I wanted to step it up some more.  The tag is from the Santa’s Workshop Memories & More cards with some Real Red ribbon tied on.

On the flip side of the tag I added some Whisper white card and stamped the To & From from the same stamp set.  I can now use this to put a little gift in or some money.  A couple of my nephews have requested money as their gift as they are saving up for some larger priced items.If you’d like to order any of these products you’d better get in quick as there is only 1 month left to order from the Holiday catalogue and items will be selling out from here on in. You can click on any of the products below to go to my online store.  And don’t forget to use the hostess code RVWCUSPY during the month of December to get an extra thank you from me.

12 Days of Christmas – Day 12

For my final project from my 12 Days of Christmas Series I have the Secret Santa Gift that I made for our Team Christmas Party.


I used the Merry Music Specialty Designer Series papers for my inspiration.  I made a little bonbon and some half bonbons to put product and chocolates in.  I used the labels I’d made on previous projects on the bag and the Jar of Malteasers.  I purchased the little jar from Kmart.

I also make up a little box for some ribbon that uses no adhesive and can fold flat.  The box was originally made by Sam Hammond from Pootles.


This box was originally made by Sam Hammond from Pootles.co.uk

12 Days of Christmas – Day 10

Day 10 brings two passions together for me.  Essential Oils & Papercrafts.

I made the tag using the Carols of Christmas stamp set and the Layering Circle Framelits.  I also used the Pretty Label Punch to make the Gold Foil topper with Cherry Cobbler Double Stitched Ribbon.  I have made some Bath salts with my Essential oils.  I used Himalayan Salt, Epsom Salts, Bicarb Soda and some Young Living Lavender Essential Oil.  This would make a great gift for the hard to buy for person that loves baths.









If you are interested in Essential oils you can contact me for further information. If you’d like to sign up to have an account then you can do that here. Signing up is a great way to get a discount on all your oils and to kick out those chemicals that are in the home. I’ve been using these oils for over 12 months now and am slowly changing over the chemicals in my house for natural products.
