After I had done the Christmas Tree, I had the BUG, I now need to try doing something else in Chipboard, it is my new favorite thing, well after the Scallop Punch in the New Summer Mini Catalogue by SU. So I did this little bag, I have a Son, I got to keep this for me, I have loaded it with my pens & pencils, and has pride of place on my Computer Table. I love the colours in this, Olives, Chocolates and Baby Blue.
I was starting to think that I had lost the bug for doing scrapping & alternative products as I did a 20 Page Album for my Sisters recent Wedding, now that was a challenge! BUT NO, It is back Yippee. I also had a massive cull of my scrapbooking products today, as I think that was a barrier, and I am having a Open Home Sale of it all, well most of it, I am going to add a few juicy items onto Trade me tonight.
So last night I introduced 5 wonderful ladies to the Kaiser Christmas Tree. They all had a fantastic time Creating, Punching & Sticking.
They all used Dashing Papers by Stampin Up, and all were so different. I took a couple of photos, so girls you are on the World Wide Web for all to see. All said that it was easier than it looked, it is mainly getting started, and away you go, the most difficult thing was when to stop adding!

I have decided to add onto here 2 of my favorite pages. They are of my son when he was just born and he favorite time of day when he was little.
These were made a little while a ago before I started Stampin Up. I haven't had chance to make any with Stampin Up products yet, as I seem to be making pages for other people at my workshops, but I hope to do some next weekend, Fingers crossed.
I counted and I have 5 days and 4 nights free until Christmas!!! I know how crazy is that. I have lots of Workshops, Card Making Classes, Touch, Tennis, Cubs, Parties, PTA Things etc etc. I have decided to just look at my diary page by page, day by day, or I think panic will set in. My new motto for next year. " I am sorry I am unable to help you at this time!"
Hiya, Lots of posting of photos today, I made this quick & Easy card for my Son for his birthday recently. It is a Stampin Up set called Celebrate! I stamped 2 Balloon and the cut one in Half, I then added to top & Bottom, then popped some silver organza ribbon around and added the other balloon on a dimensional to added a little bit extra. I like the card at it is not too fussy for a small child, plus my son loves balloons, so perfect.
Hi Ladies, I decided to get a bit more Christmassy again, It is really hard to get into the Christmas thing when it is 33 degrees outside! Yes the outskirts of Christchurch has been that warm, and being British I am still getting used to it being Sunny in November & December instead of snowing or dark and miserable LOL
I made this tree last night, once I got into the rhythm of it, it was all go. I have a workshop teaching it tonight with Dashing papers from Stampin'Up, so I will post photos of the group tomorrow.
It was really fun to do. A little fiddly though. I decided to you my own papers instead of the Christmas Range from Kaiser. The star makes a big impact at the top, and I added some Bling. Hope that you feel inspired to make a tree too
