I quickly made these Christmas cards using my scraps and off cuts that I have stored in a box. I was having trouble putting the lid on so decided to make a few extra cards tonight!!!! (LOL).
By the way just in case i don't get to post before Christmas, have a fantastic Holiday break and new year with your family and friends and also thank you for all your kind comments and following in the past two months.
p.s I also took a photo of my latest Christmas purchase and have it hanging on my kitchen window at the moment admiring it before i hang it on my front door (LOL)

On the twelfth day of Christmas I .................. didn't finish this box with twelve Christmas cards in it on time!!!!!! I had this idea that i would send a card out every day till Christmas but I have only just tonight finished this project and what, its more like four days till Christmas? (LOL) I saw this cute little box that I have totally cased (I don't normally like doing that) but i couldn't resist, click here even though it meant making my own template box and cards/ envelopes,
but i really like how it turned out apart from the fact its hard taking decent photos at night!!!!
This box holds fifteen christmas cards five each of blue, white and craft in between the dividers with the envelopes being stored at the back of the box.
Wouldn't this make a cool birthday present with a whole lot of pre-made cards inside?
Anyway i must be going to bed i promised myself an early night,

By the way my middle son Lachlan has been a little disappointed that he hasn't seen a photo of himself on my blog yet, so I took one of him this morning while I was getting him ready for his kindy fancy dress party!!!

I thought that I would post this cool little purse that holds three 3x3 cards and envelopes in,
I made it a little while ago and these are the sorts of projects/classes that i would like to do next year!!!!
I really want to start a stamp club in the beginning of February, so if you are interested in learning how to make really cool 3-d projects alongside other like minded people then drop me an e-mail and I would love to give you more details.
And don't you just love the snow on my blog!!!!!!! okay i know it doesn't snow here apart from up the mountain but it makes me feel like it is!!!!! OHHH to be able to have a white Christmas !!!!
Anyway enough dreaming i must get myself to bed,

Wow!!!! Another kwerner  challenge, not sure where last week went and i am sure this week is going to go as fast.
I absolutely love the colours this week and decided to do the same layout as i have used before using the two Stampin up square punches.
I have used Bashing blue as we don't have Baja Breeze in New Zealand yet!!! and it goes with So Saffron beautifully!!!
Really enjoyed making this card thanks for stopping by, wow!!!!! go check out the other awesome cards by clicking on kwerner.

Wanted to post these cute little chocolate box's that i have just manage to finish tonight, I had wanted to wrap up some cool chocolate bars that fit inside but just didn't have the time, I do really need a early night!!!!
But these little box's would be sweet little teacher gifts, or as a decoration for the table on Christmas day.
If you click Here it will take you to the tutorial on how to make them.

Anyway  i had a lovely afternoon with Tracey stamping, Its fun doing the challenge together seeing what different ideas are created , mind you we didn't achieve as much as we had hoped in 2 hours but lots of fun anyway. ( Click on photos to see the cool froth on top of cup)

My little nephew Tyler is getting dedicated on sunday and I brought him this cute little knitted teddy bear.
My mum and dad are traveling to Sydney this afternoon to spend the weekend with him and my sister so i had to make this card really quickly so it could all travel with them.
I tried to use coordinating colours on the card so that it would match the teddy,
Must go.


Another Kwerner challenge this week!!! When i got the coordinating card stock out i wasn't sure how i was going to fit the Certainly Celery in, so I decided to use it as one of my main colours to really challenge myself.
 We got our Christmas tree last night and it was to late to decorate it so Noah and I are waiting in anticipation for the boys to come home from kindy and school so we can decorate it!!! 
I borrowed the solemn stillness stamp set from a friend and thought why not decorate this Christmas tree with buttons, (since we can't our real tree). Unfortunately our Stampin Up Catalogue doesn't have the coordinating buttons to match the colours in this challenge but I managed to find some in my stash that do.
I only added a tiny bit of Pumpkin Pie by stamping the word Be Merry and sewing a few matching beads, you can't tell in the photo that well, but all the buttons are different and also the star on top of the Christmas tree is a button too (lol).
Also a big thank you to all of the people who have left comments on previous challenges I am really going to make sure I have time to view all the other entries and leave comments.

What a lovely night I had last night!!! My host wanted a red and white christmas themed workshop, so I showed the ladies how to make some lovely cards and tags,
We decorated the tables with some acetate box's and candles with red ribbon tied around them.(looked amazing)
Also we had strawberries covered in chocolate YUMMY!!! to go with our red and white theme
A great night to be had by all!!!
So here are some photos i quickly took before i left.
If you would like to host a party at your house drop me an e-mail, Also Stampin Up have some really good Christmas specials at the moment on stamps ,ribbon etc so send me an e-mail so i can keep you updated,


I had a fantastic day on Sunday, I got together with two friends Tracey and Jan.
We had ourselves our own little stamping room and spent the whole day whipping up some christmas cards, it was a flippin hot day but we had a fan which made it a little better.
I really have enjoyed using Ruby Red i often go straight for Real Red when making Christmas cards.
In the new mini is some beautiful Ruby Red designer paper which i centered all my Christmas cards around,
These are a few of the Christmas cards I made.
