Silent Night, Oh Holy Night

Morning guys!

With the big day drawing ever closer, I thought I'd be the perfect opportunity to share some more Christmas goodness with you all.

I created both of these cards using the same Hobby House topper pack.

I used Dovecraft Back to Basics Modern Christmas paper pack as the browns and olives matched the rich reds and ivorys from the toppers perfectly. I always have a hard time matching papers to my toppers but this worked out perfectly! :)

I used some twill? wired twill? ribbon twill? hah! from my stash, as well as some gold organza before adding a Whimsy sentiment and some liquid pearls.

Jobs a good'n. xx

Fresh Cut Florals

I shared this card over at the My Mum's Craft Shop blog on Monday, so I thought I'd pop it on my blog too :)


 My Mum's Craft Shop will be stocking products from this fantastic company VERY soon!!

Here's a little project I whipped up to whet your appetite using
and the

I used a bunch of Memento, Versamagic and Stampin Up! inks to create these florals. The fantastic thing about this stamp set is the ability you have to create layers within just one flower. 


A very fun set to sit in front of a film with. Die cut a bunch of the flowers, grab your inks and go to town with the gorgeous stamps!

Thanks for looking. xx

Mistletoe Wishes

Good morning guys! Some more DigiStamp Boutique goodness for ya! Christmas style - of course!

I coloured this gorgeous, traditional image, using my ProMarkers and fussy cut around the frame. I added it atop a simple embossed red panel which I embellished with Liquid Pearls and some grosgrain and organza ribbon. Job done! :)

Thanks for stopping by today. xo

Frosty Snowflakes

Snowflakes, snowflakes, snowflakes. I love me some snowflakes. I had to use two older My Favorite Things stamp sets from last year to create these two cards.

I used three colours of ink from Stampin' Up! Rich Razzleberry, Perfect Plum and Bashful Blue. They work so well together. I added a Bashful Blue matt before adhering the card front to the card base using dimensional adhesive. 

As for the sentiment I embossed it in silver onto some vellum and attached it to the card using some silver brads! Super easy card to replicate! 

Thanks for stopping by. xo

November!! I know!! Where has the time gone?! 

I'm definitely feeling festive almost 24/7 now. What with Halloween gone from work and Christmas totally taking over the shelves, and glitter covering the craft room floor at home it's all snowflakes and jingle bells from here on out!

It's CHRISTMAS TIME!! I'm just waiting for the flurries of snow.


Apologies for the super wonky picture. I don't know what the hell happened there.. but I am still in love with this penguin from DigiStamp Boutique.

I coloured him using ProMarkers and gave him a vibrant red scarf to match my papers from a way old Basic Grey paper pack. I stamped and embossed a sentiment from Amy R stamps and cut it using an Xcut die before adding it to the card using the worlds smallest button brads!

Pretty CAS for me, but I do like making these type of cards when I have a lot on! Thanks for stopping by. xo
