Welcome Back

It’s very near the gift giving time of year again isn’t it. Here’s a quick selection of gift box tutorials to use for your own projects.

Dig out your favorite cardstock or make your own with rubber stamps or printed paper from CDs. Some of these projects are also suitable for children to try too.  Hand made gift boxes don’t have to be time-consuming and are simple to make. Have fun, and I’d love to see your results.

Best wishes and thanks for reading, see you soon

Welcome Back  

Very excited, the parcel from the shopping channel with Anna Griffin stamps arrived earlier in the week. These are the latest Christmas stamps and also the Flourishes sets.

HAD to be done. I couldn’t resist them. Have been stamping them all out, then cutting the images up, so I can plan designs.

Here is a sneaky peak at a few projects I’ve made with them so far. I’ll post some close-ups and more details next month.

Don’t you just love Baker’s Twine! I bought mine from EBay from; Green Ridge Designs. It’s THE perfect Christmas Green and Red. The Blue is a beautiful ink blue, which I thought would be good for birthday projects later on. I couldn’t decide between the red and the green on the first tag, so I used them both :) Looks good don’t you think? Having started nice and early I’ll be making my own tags for my Christmas gifts and this twine really finishes them off. If you love Vintage then you need this thread.

I was hoping to give a link to the Stampbord project being published this month, but there has been a little delay, so will let you know as soon as I hear that its gone live.  

Best wishes

Appologies to those who read this posting before the pictures went in. Time ran away with me and I hadn’t edited the pictures in time. OOPS!
