For the Twin's

Christening cards for the twins, Girl and Boy which makes it more fun i get to see how it looks in pink and blue. I started out strong on these two cards and some how lost the plot a bit at the end they then became very ordinary i am not sure what it is that i don't like about them just something but i don't have time to fix or start again as i have visitors coming tonight so they will have to do. I am posting these ordinary cards on my blog because this will be my last post until January I am having some time of my blog.
Have a Merry Christmas all & a fun New Years night remember drive safe & don't drive at all if drinking.
Cheers Vicki

Wish Tree

I had a Wish Tree pattern left over & had some time last night to make it up. I have been looking for a project to use the Chunky Sprinkles on & this little tree was a great place to start. I have kept it simple, I have added some chocolates inside & a candy cane on the outside. Now the two little trees are ready for Ethan & Charlotte's to give away too their friends up the road.

Giving Money this yr

Are you giving money this year and feel it seem a bit boring just to stick money in an envelope, I have older kids in our family & money is what they all want so this year I have made these money wallets that can hang from the tree & they have something to open. Very easy to made just one A4 sheet of card cut it down a little fold in three & decorate with what you like. I have also added a gift voucher holder great for gift voucher Ipod money cards again very easy cut down a A4 card leave one side longer than the other stick down the sides use the Slit punch to make the hole for some where to pull it out from. If anyone wants to know how to do any of these great ways to make the teenagers still feel like they have something spacial to open email me on . I am not going to put items used on each photo it would take to long here is a list of items used for all projects as they are all made on the same idea, CS: In Colours, Holiday Harmony, Stamps: Season of Joy, In the spotlight, Baroque motifs, Occasional Greetings, Merry Merry, Friendly Flowers, Party Punch. Ink: Whisper White Craft, In Colours, Always Artichoke. Other: Styled Silver Hodgepodge, Ribbon a mix of In Colours & Always Artichoke.
I hope you like these & I hope the girls like them too on Christmas morning.

A quick Christmas Card

This is a quick Christmas card I made for a friend who lives in Wagga. I am a bit behind on the Christmas cards this year. This photo doesn't do much for it looks better in in real life, I find it hard to see the bottom part sorry has been raining which makes it hard to get outside to take photo's. I seem to do a lot of masking with this stamp I must feel the need to two tree's not one.

CS: Whisper White. Ink: Purely Pomegranate, River Rock, Elegant Eggplant. Stamp Set: Season of Joy. Other: Brad & Purely Pomegranate ribbon.

Christmas 6x6 scrapbooking page
