Last month we had our team Christmas Party and we have the opportunity to be in a Secret Santa gift. We make up a gift and include $20 worth of Stampin’ Up! product as well all current. I struggled with this as I was quite short on time and I didn’t have any ideas at all. So onto the pinterest & youtube search I went. I found the set of drawers on Intertwyne Designs and loved them. They were fairly simple to put together. The bag was something I created to fit the drawers. The last item was an Impossible Popper Box by The Paper Pixie. I love this little box but I did struggle to put it together the first time around. I really need to learn to read instructions better 🙂
I used the Let is snow DSP as it was one of my favourites from the Holiday catalogue.
So many great products at such a great price that will brighten up the holidays! There’s even 16 products that are $20 and under. Take a look at all these great products and see which ones you can’t live without.
This Saturday I am hosting a Christmas Card Buffet from 10am – 5pm. There will be 10 different Christmas Card designs to choose from. The cost is $5 entry and then $2.50 per card. You can come and stay all day or pop in for a short time and make some cards and then go.
If you want to pop in, let me know you’re coming by clicking on this link I would love to see you and have fun being creative.

This month we were challenged with card layout. I chose to use the Most Wonderful Time Product Medley. A gorgeous suite of products that include stamps, dies, 6×6 papers, adhesive image sheets, stars & tinsel.
I used the stamps & the designer series paper stack for this project. I also used the Mossy Meadow linen thread from the Magnolia Lane Ribbon Combo Pack which I feel just goes beautifully with rest of the card.
I love the gold foil on the red mistletoe background paper and then on the flip side are the trees. I loved this combination together as they are very traditional Christmas colours. I like the simplicity of the card with just the tree and then with the candy canes as the decorations on the tree. I felt that the tree was still a little naked so I used the other tree image as the branches stamped off. I just kept stamping till it filled in the spaces of the tree.
I added the Mossy Meadow linen thread to break up the sentiment and the tree, Then I added a christmas present on the scallop circle in real red so it is quite a subtle tone on tone image.
I made another card but rotated the design on the next card as I cut the patterned paper incorrectly but it enabled me to create another card. I used the scallop circle with the image in real red ink.
Can you believe it? We’re in double digits for our Blog Hop.
Thanks for joining us on our blog hop journey of Holiday Catalogue Projects. This month’s challenge was a great one to do as we all get to play with brand new product from the new Holiday Catalogue which was only released 10 days ago.
I have chosen to play with the Memories & More Card Pack from the Night Before Christmas Suite. I have always loved these cards as they make creating cards very quick and easy. In this card pack you get 6 each of 9 double designs and 6 sticker sheets. So you could easily grab 5 friends and get together to make some simple Christmas cards.
There is very little stamping on these cards as most of them already have the sentiments for you. I did add the “Celebrate the Season” to Santa in Cherry Cobbler ink from the Itty Bitty Christmas Stamp Set as he needed a little something extra and rather than using a punch I just used my papersnips to cut the Vanilla Card on an angle to add some extra dimension.

Welcome to my final day of the 12 Days of Christmas Series and a very Merry Christmas to you all on Christmas Day. My plan was never to finish on Christmas day but that is what happens when I get too busy to craft. Next year I really need to have all my projects ready to go before I even start my series.
This project I saw on another demonstrators page and so wanted to make it for my final project. I love making Christmas decorations and home decor items and this bauble is no exception.
You can watch the talented Vanessa Webb as she shares how to make this bauble. I love how easy these are to put together.
If you’d like to purchase any of these products that I’ve used to make these baubles just click the links below.
