Christmas Cards

It's Christmas Card time again and this year I'm actually organised.

I have a pile of cards left from an Anna Griffin Kit last year to give to friends at church.

I found a small box of cards I bought in Woolies closing down sale last year in amongst my decorations to give the girls at work.

I found a some ideas through Splitcoaststampers that used half a SU scrapping kit to make a great selection of cards so I've used the Christmas Jingle kit with the Tree Trimming Stamp set from Stampin' Up! to make some family cards.

I've used the Winter Post stamp set and a new technique I found on youtube to make a spinner card for a fellow card maker.

I've still to make a reindeer mobile/card for my brother and sister-in-law. cos its fun :)

And for my Mum & Peter and Dad & Katy I'll be trying a Tri-Shutter card. Will let you know how it goes.

If your still wanting to order anything before Christmas or if you want ideas of what to buy for a crafting friend or family member just get in touch and I'll be happy to help.

So, how's your card making going this year?

Started my cruise scrapbook!!!!

Ok I know I came back from holiday two months ago but its taken me this long to get started :)

I saw a challenge on UKScrappers and decided to get off my behind and do it! So here is my first layout for my Cruise Scrapbook.

This is me on the Helipad just out side my window on the Celebrity Summit.

I used the Petal Party kit from Stampin' Up! and extra sticker from a set I got onboard and the announcement from the ships daily paper that hasn't scanned very well. I also used a journal block from the Christmas Jingle set that I had left over from making cards and just put punches over the snowflakes. (I'll show you the cards later :D )

Helipad Sailaway, 5;00pm, Helipad, Deck 5 Fwd, Port.
Join the ships Officers and get the best view of the Dalmation Coast as we sail away from beautiful Dubrovnick. Bring your cameras. Steps involved, weather permitting.

The weather was 27 and sunny incase you wondered :)
