This term I will be holding another Childrens Craft Course. The course is for children in years 2 and up. The course will run on Wednesdays 4pm-530pm commencing 14th February through till 28th March, 2018.
During the course the children will learn about colour theory and stamping techniques. The projects that they’ll be making this term will be a 3D Frame with coloured swirls, a set of 6 cards with a box, 8 easter baskets that the kids can put eggs into and give to their friends and 4 more cards using some water colour pencils.
If you’d like to book your kids into this class then send me an email and I’ll book them in. My classes are limited to 6 students to allow me time to spend with each student.
Today I want to share with you a card that I made for my eldest daughters Teacher. The class parent was collecting money for a gift for the teacher and I offered to make a card to go with the gift. I also had some Christmas gift tags to go into the gift as I always love giving a handmade gift rather than just money. Gift tags are always a more practical gift as they can use them straight away for Christmas.
Here is the card I made.
I used the Water colour pencils for this project and enjoyed colouring this card especially as the Teacher is a very creative teacher that coordinates our Art Show every second year.
I stamped the image 3 times, twice on Whisper White and then the third time was on another piece of Whisper White then fussy cut it out and popped it onto dimensionals after I coloured it.
The hamper was given to her on Wednesday but I wasn’t able to be there unfortunately but have since heard that she loved the card.
If you’d like to order any of these products please check them out on my online shop and if you use the hostess code of the month then I will send out an extra special thank you to you for your order.
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 The box was originally made by Sam Hammond from Pootles.
This box was originally made by Sam Hammond from Pootles.co.uk

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.
