2010 Christmas Cards

  Here are a few of the Christmas gifts and cards i received this year, i was very spoilt.
All of these gifts and cards are so much nicer in real life, my photography isn't the best.
Thank you to everyone for these and more wonderful cards.

I received this gift from Liam Pucher,
I love the handmade Inventory Booklet, it will be very handy to jot down what i have and to have it all in one spot so i can quickly see what i have, it is so cool and so clever.

I recieved this gift from Gemma Hall,,
the chocolates have since dissappeared. I love the bow, i can see a craft day coming up Gem!

This is one of the christmas cards i posted out this year.

This so cute card came with a candy cane that hangs in the middle but it didn't last long enough to be photographed.

Dazzling Decorations

I love these decorations. They can take a bit of time but they are so worth it.
I cannot remember but i think i saw the pattern on Splitcoast.
My nan has recently moved into care and her room is not very festive so i plan to take a few of these to brighten her room up.

 They look great at night with all that glitter.

Baby Evie

I had a wonderful day today, i visited with my 9 day old sweet niece, Evie Mae.
She is the sweetest little girl. It is so nice to cuddle a baby. Christmas this year has been stressing me more than normal and it was so nice to sit around and forget the silly season for awhile. Everything seems so much better when you hold a baby, they are magical.

Covered Notepad

I covered this notepad for a gift. I used the card backing that comes in a packet of DSP to make the cover and then covered it in DSP and decorated the front.

Frangipani Card

My sister asked me to make a card for her for a friend's birthday.
The party has a Hawaiian theme and so i ran with frangipanis.
There is lots of glitter spray and the flowers have a water colour effect that hasn't really shown up in the photos. It turned out to be a pretty card.
 It was hard to decide on a colour theme as i don't know the recipient.

 Inside the card. I made the card square so there is a bit more space to write on. I am really happy that Stampin Up have square envelopes in their catalogue.

Regional Scrap Page

We made this 6x6 page at Regionals, i really liked it but with the circles on the side it wouldn't quite fit in my album so i put it onto a 12x12 page and added a few more butterflys and stamps.
I added the clock as the photo was taken with Alice in Wonderland characters.
I love the butterflys, i had to get these after seeing the butterfly at Regionals, it's so true what they say about letting someone touch the products and they "need"to have it. That is "so"me.

It's a Girl

This is the card i have made for my brother-in-law and sister-in-law.
It turned out quite sweet. I have used dimensionals on the animals and the white scalloped circle.
I am really loving the vintage laces from the Summer Mini and the so cute safety pins.

 Inside of the card.

24 Days Till Christmas

We decided this year to sort through our Christmas decorations and have gone with my handmade Christmas craft as the decorations. We have for many years now only decorated our tree with papercraft decorations my daughter and i make. It's so nice to be surrounded with everything that makes me happy.
Now just to get all that shopping done.
