Santa's Pant's Stampin Creative Blog Hop Festive Frenzy

 Welcome to the Stampin Creative Blog Hop,

Yes it's that time of month its Stampin Creative Blog Hop time,  you may have arrived here from the Lovely  Caroline  HERE

This months blog hop is all about the Festive time It's Festive Frenzy !!

And it certainly is in the Fee household, making loads of Santa Pants for Paul's Disabled Club Christmas Bazaar,  Why are there Blue ones, Chelsea of course, every year Paul gets me to make packaging for the sweet stall he does at the club, Last year was Curvy Keepsake Boxes, this year he went mooching on the internet and came up with Santa Stuff, he thinks I can work miracles truly he does, anyhow we came up with a solution and the Santa Pant's were born!!!

They were very easy to make, and I am trying to make a video to show how to make them, not having much luck in the techno dept,  so it may be a while!!

So for now I have for now done a hand written one for you, see photos below

Santa's Pant's
Cut card stock 9 1/2 x 5 inches

score the 9 1/2 side @ 1 1/2, 4 1/2, 6 and 9 inches
score the 5 inch side @ 1 1/2

cut a strip of Black Card stock 3 " x 1 cm

Turn ups for the bottom of trousers  1 1/2 " x 1/2  ,  when making multiples I cut a strip 3" wide and
then cut strips off at 1/2 segments, then cut in half, it was less time consuming this way.
Straps for Trousers 7 3/4" x 1/2 "

I then took a marker pen and used a ruler to help me make the line in the middle of the trousers.

Please do give the Santa Pant's a try , and please don't forget to share with me, I would love to see them.

Please do pop along to the lovely Mikaela HERE and see what else awaits you in this blog hop.

Hello December It's the most Magical time of the year!!!!

Oh by the skin of me teeth, I may have made the Global design Project Challenge Global Design Project #GDP012 this week, my where has the time gone!!!

Anyway this weeks challenge  HERE was to CASE the Designer, and the Designer is the fabulous Brian King,

I chose the case part of the card, 
Copy And Selectively Edit. This means you can be inspired by ANYTHING on this card. What inspires you in this card to make it your own, what will you copy and what will you edit? 

Well the layout and the colours inspired me, it reminded me of the colours and elements in the  Stampin Up Hello December 2015 Project Life Accessory Pack.
Incorporating the Reindeer from the Jolly Christmas Stamp Set 
loving the texture on this card even if it didn't come out quite as planned.
I still think it's quite pretty and I will probably put it on a frame and make a Home Decor piece out of it.
Here is my entry………….

Please Pop back tomorrow for the Stampin CreativeBlog Hop and I have a tutorial for you to try.

Winter Wonderland with a dash of Snowflakes

Hello There,
Wow It's cold and Winter has arrived in Freezin Fashion, Brrrrr!!!

Today I am sharing one of the Downline team gifts I decorated, 

I happened across some key rings that had Stars dangling covered in crystals, and since our main team name is Stampin Stars, I just loved the idea of these for my team gifts.

 Whilst I loved them  I also wanted to pretty them up with some handmade boxes, I was inspired by my lovely friend Caroline at Crafty Hallett,   and used the construction make up of a book box she made using the Festive Flower builder punch to house a small pretty diary, I took the concept and altered the sizing,  again I hope they all liked it.
   I used Black and Gold  as  the crystals were Champagne and clear wrapped plenty gold ribbon and cord threaded through the wooden snowflakes elements,  I thought they looked stunning I hope you do too…

I just love this Simple Elegant Design, and I hope you do too!

Believe in the Miracle , with Flurry of Wishes Stampin Up

Hello There
It's been a while I am sorry,

It has been busy busy busy at the Fee Household,  I have been teaching Paul  to drive again after his stroke, making curvy boxes for him to sell at his Disabled club bazaar, running classes and  and of course preparations for Stampin Up Onstage event.

I was honoured to have ten of my team members join me this year and I wanted to make something pretty to house the thank you gift I bought them.  Whilst I had to do these I didn't have spare time to make general swaps so decided to join our wider team members in a Wow swap, …

I would also like to enter this project in the Global Design Project challenge

Global Design Project #GDP011


 Where the theme is Christmas,

So today I shall show you the wow swap I was inspired by a swap I received form my team member Jan Twinks Stamping, she made fab pouch and out in a smelly hanging sachet for your car or wardrobe , off I rushed to Asda and bought them out, I loved them, ha ha, … If they didn't look Wow they certainly smelt WOW!

I decided to use a couple of stamp sets I am afraid  Flurry of wishes, and  the splats from Awesomely Artistic, I made a box for it to fit in, stamped the AA splat in versa mark and threw Silver embossing powder on it and heated it, inked up part of the sentiment from FOW and embossed that, tied a piece of Silver cord around and threaded bells before tying in a knot.  Punched out stars from the fab glitter card stock  added sequins and rhinestone for more texture and bling…

I think they were well received , I know I certainly loved the ones I got back in return.
Bye for now, do pop back soon , I have loads to share….xxxxxxxx
