More Christmas Cards

After all Christmas is just around the corner! Well maybe not quite yet, but it always comes around quicker than you think. Both my kids Birthday's are in December and I've always tried to be organised, it hard coping with both. Even though they are grown up now and I'm a Grandma, It's a habit for life. Some of these cards are cased as I always need some inspiration to jump start me. But I'm sure most people don't mind. I know I would be flattered if people like my cards enough to copy them.there is no shortage of Ideas out there.

Smash Books

I have just discovered Smash books from K & Co. It's very big in the US, and it's here in the UK. I bought mine from Craftsuperstore. I bought the Eco one which is green and as soon as it came I was Smashing my things in. You can find some videos on You Tube.
This is what I've done so far. I know I could have made a DIY one but I'm far too lazy for that and I quite like the fact that it is done for you and there are lots of accessories to use. I've already ordered another one for my daughter who is moving house soon I know she will love it as she loves using note books and writing lists.

CR84FN58 Colour Challenge

I haven't done a challenge for ages but I just love this colour combo of red, yellow and vanilla, I got a new stamp come yesterday called Mum's the Word by Penny Black and although it took a little while to colour, I think this will become a favourite. I don't think I can link to The challenge blog via my iPad but you should find a link on the right side of my blog via Cupcakes creations.

Key Ingredients June Kit

I know that it is now July but the kit doesn't ship until the 15th and it takes a couple of weeks to get here, and the annoying thing is I also had to pay a customs charge on the parcel, as a subscriber I had the chance to order the stamp set at half price, but as it turned out it wasn't such a bargain after all. I love this kit and stamp set though.
Hope all is well wherever you live. Here we are gearing up for the Olympics and on Monday we had the torch relay pass through our Town, it was amazing and brought everyone out onto the streets cheering it on.

More Christmas

I also made a Christmas tree shaped ornament which I got from Merly Impressions which was in the sale after Christmas earlier in the year. With some of the scraps from my cards I made some gift tags.
I must apologise to my readers for the layout of my posts recently but I am using the App on my iPad and it just doesn't give you the option to move things around etc.

Christmas starts here

Our little group Crafty Chicks had our summer retreat at the weekend and I decided to make a start on Christmas. As I got all my Christmas stash out I decided I definitely do not need any more Christmas stash, famous last words and all that, anyway I might just have a U-turn on that later on.
