First Walk in the Woodlands - JAI#286

The Woodlands Embossing Folder was love at first sight for me!
One of the first things on my order I couldn't wait to use it.
Such a versatile little embossing folder for every occasion but as Christmas is getting closer now, so
here is a Christmas Card I made.

I have just seen that the girls over at Just-add-ink. blogspot.com.au  have a Challenge running at the moment and it is just add "W". (Please click on link above to see what others have come up with.)
So I think I am in with this one.



It is quite hard to photograph but I tried to catch the light on it so you could see some of the sparkle from the gold embossing, sequins, diamantes and the dazzling diamond glimmer cards stock.



I used Smoky Slate for the card base.
The Woodlands Embossing folder was brayered with Crumbcake ink, then I placed my white cardstock in and ran it through the Bigshot.
Hey Presto! Crumbcake background!
I stamped leaves from Lovely as a Tree Stamp and spots from Gorgeous Grunge Stamp Set, in…

Who is Looking through the Window?

Hohoho! I see Santa saying "Hello"!
This cute card was inspired by someone on Pinterest. I just went back though and couldn't find the card! So sorry I can't credit them personally. I cut the Santa from the Home For Christmas Designer paper p.9  The Merry Christmas is from Lots of Joy Stamp Set in the Main Catalogue p.69
and those lovely white dots are Home For Christmas Enamel Dots p. 9.
My wood style background is the Hardwood Background Stamp stamped in White onto Crumbcake Card stock.
 And isn't the background pretty? It is just a piece of whisper white card stock sponged lightly with Marina Mist, Blushing Bride and Soft Sky. Then the trees from the Happy Scenes Stamp set stamped in Mossy Meadow.

Super cute and easy card.

We have been away for a few weeks holiday at Carnarvon Gorge which is inland 700kms west from Brisbane, Queensland. Here are a few pics for you.Loved every minute.





Now it is back to real life and stamping of course! Plenty of cards to make …

Personal Christmas Folder - a must have record-keeping tool!

Today I am entering this 3D Christmas Project in the Watercooler Wednesday Challenge no.36.
You can find the Challenge by clicking HERE WW36.
5th Week Special...MAKE ANYTHING 3D CHALLENGE.
There really is no limit, as long as the project is 3-D.

What is a Christmas Folder???? They are my personal folders for Christmas Record Keeping.
You know...Christmas Card Lists, Present Lists/ideas, Food lists, Decorations, Parties, and best of all a place to file all the receipts!
 I have been making these little beauties for classes and personal use for over 6 years now and just love them (obviously!) hehe.

What I love is that they are easy and quick to make. You can personalise them to suit.
AND best and most important of all....
They have a place where you can keep all your receipts of Christmas present purchases so when something breaks or doesn't fit and needs returning...you know just where that receipt is!.
And I should know...I still have the receipts stuck in all my folders from all tho…

Window on Christmas

Well it has finally arrived!! The time to start sharing with you all the wonderful things I have been making with the new products from the Holiday Catalogue! Seriously good stuff!!
I want to start with the Hearth and Home Thinlits dies - or as I call it...the "window die".(p.11)

I have wanted a window die for years and when I saw this one it was first on my order! Including the Happy Scenes Stamp Set  because "who doesn't love a Bundle!"and the chance to save 15%!

Windows are sooooo practical and versatile. The kind of die you can use all year round.
So before we jump into the Christmas show and tell....here is a pretty window card I made for a birthday.

Do you love the lace curtains made from a Stampin Up Doily?
 Pretty Petals Designer Paper stack paper, Brick Embossing Folder, and some little punch flowers. Old Olive, Pink Pirouette, Blushing Bride and Calypso Coral.

Now for a Christmas Card...
These stamps are from Cozy Christmas p.9 and Jingle All the Way p.…
