12 Days of Christmas – Day 5

For my Day 5 project I made up a jar with “Reindeer Noses” inside which are Malteasers and Jaffas. Its a cute little project that anyone would love.  A great gift for kids too though maybe a bit too much chocolate.

I’ve used the Merry Music Specialty Designer Series Paper, Green Sprigs, Mini Ornaments & Black Shimmer Ribbon and purchased the glass jar from Kmart.

I’ve listed all the products used at the bottom of this post.

Children’s Craft Course

Starting today I am holding a Children’s Craft Course in my home. The course is for 7 weeks and will, hopefully, help the the children to be able to work with colours more confidently in the future.

They are going to be making a 6″ x 8″ Scrapbook Album, 8 Christmas cards with envelopes and 2 Christmas Rosette Ornaments.

I have a maximum class size of 6 students as I want to be able to give each student the attention and help that they may need.

I’m really looking forward to the classes each week and hope that each of the children will be more confident in colours and being creative.

Below is what they’ll be creating.

And here is the kit that they’ll receive.

If you’d like to purchase any of these products, you can shop for them online at my shop and have them delivered straight to your door.

Watercolour Christmas Project Kit

The Watercolor Christmas Project Kit is in the new Holiday Catalogue and has the materials to make 20 cards, 5 each of 4 designs. There is a matching stamp set to go with this kit, Watercolor Christmas.

I haven’t yet purchased the Watercolor Christmas Stamp set  and so I wanted to see if I could use a different stamp set for the sentiments as a substitute.  After all, sometimes we have our favourite sentiments that we want to use.  I used the Snowflake Sentiments stamp set instead and loved how the cards turned out. You could also use the Oh, What Fun stamp set as well and really any other sentiment stamp set that you own.  The Watercolour Christmas Project Kit is really quite versatile and you can adapt any stamp set that you wish.

Below is a video produced by Stampin’ Up! on the kit and how to assemble the cards.

 

And finally I have included a video by a US demonstrator, Rachel Tessman from Stamp your Art Out, that explains how you can create double the cards from one kit.
