Christmas Tag

So yes I am being organised this year and have already started making my Christmas gift tags!
Yes shock horror the world must be coming to an end if I am organising myself like this lol

So heres the tag

I'm quite pleased with it's vintage look, I stamped the images in Early Espresso and also inked all the edges in this too.  I've used the large scalloped circle, the top not die and I think the 1 1/2 inch circle punch.  I've stamped on Real Red card, Garden Green and Whisper White.  The stamp set is Christmas Lodge.  I adore this stamp set mainly because it pleases my childhood view of how Christmas should be.  I've used a vintage brad and some gems to finish it off.

I hope you like it, if you would like any of the items used to make this card please email me your order at

Friends birthday card

I must admit that I sourced this card from the internet as I had a complete brain block on Saturday   I knew I wanted to use the colours Cajun Craze and Baja Breeze and also the From My Heart stamp set.  Thats about as far as I got.  So I simply popped From My heart into Google and up came lots of ideas so here is the card.

I've added the Victoria lace and a few gems, I've also used the Holiday Frame embossing folder, just goes to show this frame can be used all year round.  This is a C6 card (half the size of A5).  I used the colour coach to help me find a colour to complement the Cajun Craze, this is a fantastic tool and well worth the money I highly recommend it,

Come back tomorrow when I will show you a similar card using the Papillon Potpourri stamp set.

Christmas book tree

Well when I saw the following project I, of course, had to make it,

It's so simple yet very effective and will make a lovely vintage centre piece for the Christmas table, unfortunately you have to destroy an old paperback  book to make it :-(  .  Being a book lover this was the hardest part for me.  On the upside I was able to get two trees out of one book, and as my son pointed out I was just turning a tree back into a tree again ;-), no it still didn't make me feel any better either.

If you'd like to have ago yourself the lovely Emily a fellow demonstrator has put a tutorial on her blog here.
