I used the Cheerful Christmas Additions pack, because I love the bright colours for kid pages. The lettering I cut from Green cardstock using the new Creative Cuts lettering tool - this is very very cool! As many letters as you want out of whatever colour you want. And it's getting easier and easier to use every time I pick it up.
I have had fun at my Christmas workshops this month, teaching people how to make these little hanging Coffee Holders. They are a simple little gift for people such as workmates or customers. They will look fabulous hanging on the tree!
At the Christmas Crop next weekend I will give them as gifts to our attendees, and also the ditrections for how to make them.
I have used brick and green apple cardstock, along with the embellishments from the Very Merry pack.
I went to a Stampin Up class of Helen's last week and she showed us how to make these adorable Santa cards. I had to rush home and try it for myself immediately. I have made about ten so far, and want to make a few more. I just love punch craft, adn these cards mainly make use of punching and shaping tools. I have used the Creative memories ovals and other tools, and Stampin Up's cardstock in Cherry Cobbler, Whisper White and Pink Pirouette. The moustache is an absolutely fantastic way to use the SU two step bird puch - honestly, who came up with that?! It's just magic!
I have entered the ABC Christmas challenge for the FIRST time, even though I've followed it all year... seriously, next year I will be more organised. This is such a good way of getting cards done early!
