I feel very lucky to have such
wonderful friends.

Wonderful card from Gemma.

A gift from my Upline Denise. Adore the mug so much.

Nerida has handmade everything from the envelope to the
gorgeous little lantern that lights up.

Christmas Cards with Stampin Up

Here are 2 of the Christmas cards I posted
out this year. I love this colour scheme.
Crumb Cake, Cherry Cobbler and Very Vanilla.
A lot of layers and texture.
Looking forward now to holidays
 and more time to create.

Single Layer Stampin Up Christmas Cards

If your like me and running out of time
to get everything done before Christmas,
(a week today)!!! here are some quick
and easy Christmas cards to make.
One layer, plain old rubber stamping,
some sponging and your done.
I used sticky post it notes to mask
off the areas, sponged on some Christmas colour,
added a sentiment and a Christmas image.
Great for last minute cards.

Secret Santa Christmas Gift

I posted this Secret Santa gift off
to Queensland last week.
Using Stampin Up supplies I coordinated 
the whole gift from the box, to the card
and a decoration for the tree.
The vintage gift I choose also matched the theme
of the papers and stamps.
I love how it's so simple to
create with Stampin up.

Stamp Club Projects for December

This month at Stamp Club we made 
a complete gift for someone special.
Using all Stampin Up products,
except for the white bag,
 we made a gift bag with 
a big beautiful double bow.
A Christmas cracker, which we filled
with chocolates.
The card is a flip card and we added some 
Christmas bling.

Christmas Gifts for my Stamp Club Ladies

Stamp Club has gone by so fast this year.
I enjoyed coming up with new ideas
to showcase all of Stampin Up's 
wonderful products.
For gifts for my Stamp Club ladies
I decorated a gift box and added to the box
a handmade gingerbread cookie, a snowflake
decoration for the tree and a Vanilla Bean candle.

Christmas with Stampin Up's Wood-Mount Cases

Stampin Up's half size wood-mount cases
are perfect for decorating and
adding a few small gifts.
I had so much fun decorating these.
And when all the treats are gone you are left
with a decorated case to store stamps
or crafting supplies.
I added some chocolates and a decorated gingerbread treat.

50th Anniversary Card

I was recently asked to make a card for a friend's 
parents anniversary. 
No specifications as to colour, design were given.
Here is what I came up with.
