Where has the year gone?

| 1 Comment

Where has the year gone?  Yesterday my 8 year old told me how many days there were left until Christmas.  I wanted to block my ears and sing “LaLaLaLa”  There’s so much that needs to be done between now and the end of the year.  The house we’re building should be finished by early next year and there’s lots of ‘hands on’ stuff we need to do ourselves.  We also need to put our current house on the market.   It is a crazy time of the year without all of this extra stuff.

Now speaking of deadlines- we’re almost half way through November which means that you only have a couple of weeks to take advantage of the great November special.

One of the bundles that is available is the “Gifted Bundle” which includes the “Gifted” stamp set and the “Jolly Holiday Designer Series Paper”.  When you purchase this bundle you can select a roll of ribbon for FREE.  There are 4 designs you can pick from and one of the choices is the Real Red Polka Dot Grosgrain ribbon.

I have used the “Gifted” stamp set to make a quick and easy set of tags.  Just a little bit of the Jolly holiday designer series paper on each tag finishes it off nicely. 

I made a super easy box using my big shot and popped the gift tags inside.

How easy is it to just run the cardstock through the bigshot and then fold and assemble the box?    Now I must confess that when I made this I had run out of “Cherry Cobbler” cardstock which is the cardstock that matches the Jolly Holiday paper.  I used “Real Red” instead.  It ended up being one of those situations that worked out perfectly because it meant that the FREE REAL RED polka dot ribbon that I tied around the box was the perfect match.

The ornament punch (which is available in the “Delightful Decorations Bundle”) made for a quick and easy adornment for the front of the box!

If you would like to order one of these bundles and receive your free ribbon then please contact me as soon as possible to avoid disappointment

Thank you cards

| Leave a comment

A little while ago I wanted to thank a couple of special people and these are the cards I made for them.  I used a selection of the Cottage wall designer series papers and the “Thank you” stamp from the “Fresh Cuts” stamp set.


The main feature in the centre is a die cut shape called “Sweetest Stems”   When you run this die through your bigshot, not only does it cut out the shape but it also embosses it.  You can even flip it over so that the image is ‘debossed’

STAMP SETS: Fresh Cuts

CARDSTOCK: Rich Razzleberry, Orchid Opulence, Old Olive Whisper White


PUNCHES: Oval, Scallop Oval, Eyelet Border Punch

OTHER: Bigshot and “Sweetest Stem” Die
