Christmas loot boxes...

I really do have to stop taking my photos after midnight! I just don't have the right light!
Anyways.... having created the Santa box at another fantastic class with Sue Dean, I realised the casing potential of these cute little boxes, suitable for lollies or small gifts.

OK - so the snowman, with his enlarged head looks a little scary!  (Scope for Halloween!) but I'm generally stoked with the result of these punch art friends - Miss P's favourite is the angel, whilst Miss M likes the reindeer :o)

19 sleeps to go!...

Inspired by Liam Pucher's use of the scallop square punch, I used Martha Stewart's new Holly punch to create this smart little card.

Ahoy Shipmate!...

OOO-aaaar - a simple yet special card put together for one of Miss P's little pre-school friends  :o)
No idea where stamp is from but wherever little boys are concerned, my little pirate is usually called upon!
Used a gold pen for trail and 'X marks the spot' - always always always forget how messy those pens can be if shaken without lid on!


I had a wonderful afternoon with Sue Dean and friends last weekend and we made this divine stationary kit - perfect perfect Mother-In-Law giftee!

Although I am a little disappointed with the colour I chose (it's nice... but I had colour envy with my class mates' choices!) I think the set - complete with cards, tags, notebook, stamp pocket and pen holder - is 'gorjus'

Floral Shimmer...

This Elegant Lines embossing folder from SU is just luxury and needs very little dressing up to look gorgeous.
