When doing cards for neighbours I do like to do quick and simple, I love small cards too not too much stash is used, Tight wad aren't I... Though I did use a fair few Stampin up rhinestones on them, ..

I used one of my longtime fave stamp sets from Stampin up Season of joy, real red and Old Olive colourways, never disappoint when making Christmas cards, they always look so lush....

Quick and easy packaging....

As promised I have a gift packet to share with you, although one of the piccies is rather blurred I am afraid.... Todays creation was inspired by one of Michelle lasts 12 days of Christmas postings,

A quick way of packaging those fabulous crafting products.... I wrapped a peice of cardstock around the item width ways (The item in this instance is a Stampin up punch)and glued together, Then used designer paper and wrapped it lengthways attached a peice of cardstock to which I had punched a border, and then used Ribbon the keep it closed..

How simple was that, no scoring and only measurement needed is its height...

Hope you all had great Christmas...

We had a rather sad one here, My 12 days of Christmas was cut short as we had a bereavement here in the Fee household and we had to fly out to Ireland for a funeral dodging the awful weather when you are pushing a wheelchair is no mean feat I have to say... I am beginning to get rather fed up with the snow and ice....

We had a big fammily get together Boxing day, and I went and done a JIM ROYAL and dropped a full tin of shortbread biscuits on my big toe and I didnt have any slips on either! lol nope I didnt rest me poor foot in the quality street tin!... tee hee!

I made homemade carrot and corriander soup for the first time,(tescos went mad with the carrots this year loads reduced on crimbo eve) and nigella sausages (made with Ginger preserve, soy sauce and wholegrain mustard) and they were loved by all, so am well pleased, when you have over 20 for dinner it is quite worrying that what you cook will be edible let alone liked by all, I also did jacket Pots and chocolate chilli con carne and not a morsel left of any of it, so must have done well in my stress...lol

I do have some piccies of gift boxes to show you, so do pop back later for a mooch, I shall be busy making new year cards as I didnt manage to get all my crimbo ones out, so will show you them when they are done....
Take care all....

Fantastic colour combination dont you think!
I adore this set, the box was one I saw in a BHS store housing hot chocolate and other yummies and i thought wow what a fab gift package that wouldmake, well what a faff of a project it turned out to be, it's triangle in design and real hard to do, phew I was glad once it was finally finished, Nearly balled me eys out when the phone went just as I finished it, coz as I turned round Stamford had it in hs mouth all ready to rip to shreads, see he sees a handmade box, (and yes he knows the difference) and thinks Oohhhheeee chocolatey stuffs in there! Mmmmm norty Stamford....

Welcome to day 5 of the 12 Days of christmas, and a big thankyou for popping back each day, but dont be shy do leave a comment I love to hear what you think!

Today I have used the card candy items that I made for the card candy swap at the Stampin up convention this year I love love love Kraft cardstock and now with its new name of Crumb cake love it even better! I so love the elegance it lends to Black and Cream. The sizes of my cards today are here and there really as they are scraps of left overs, so I can see me trying to make envelopes for the first time now! Woweee looking forward to that NOT!


The cards today are all about punches really more than stamps and I really enjoyed making them and just love how they have come out, I have used the fabbi Spritzer tool to add a bit of splatter here n there I think it needed it too stark otherwise, makes them look a little Vintage dont you think! Kinda Victorian in style I think!

The photos dont do these cards justice, they are gorge in real life espesh with those ultra sparkly rhinestone...

What do I have for you today, Well A Winter's Tale I do! Since the Snow has made an appearence and set everything off keel, I thought only one stamp set will do in the circumstances, Stampin up's A Winters Post, this set is such a beauty I love it and hope that it will be in our catty forever more!

I have also used a fabulous tool to help me decide what colourways to use for this project! I wanted something other than reds and green or blues for my Winters tale!
And the fabulous Colour Coach that stampin up have brought to us in this years catalogue has done the job perfectly, its a real must have for all stampers and papercrafters alike! On page 81 of the catalogue item number 122228 and at £13.50 I feel it is money well spent, espesh for those who find it hard to put certain colours together!
