more Christmas cards…

2 Dec

Continuing on from my post last week here is some more last minute inspiration for you…

This is Kaszazz workshop 2H491.  I love the use of pink and green and you know I am fond of polka dots!  I was thinking these could be adapted for any occasion by swaping the Christmas tree stamp with something more generic.  Aren’t they lovely?

These ones below are workshop 2H425 and I think they are perfect for a modern Christmas.  Fluid chalks are used to give that lovely bright yet soft effect.

From the scraps I quickly whipped up two extra cards, so this is a great value workshop.

So what are your thoughts on these contemporary Christmas cards?  Are you more the tradition type?  Share your thoughts and links with us in the comments section.

thinking… christmas cards

27 Nov

It’s not too late to think about making your own Christmas cards.   Really, if you pull your socks up and hop to it you should have just enough time!

At a previous team training day we made these gorgeous blue and gold cards using some of the new Christmas stamps.  This is Kaszazz workshop 2H662.

I love seeing cards make in non tradition Christmas colours.  I have ear marked a couple of workshops I want to try out and I really need to get moving on them.

Here’s a couple of links to get us all inspired:

Alicia’s Creative Space – using new Kaszazz stamps

Scrap Knack – using Perfect Pearls

Bwokie – a variety of cards from a team training day

Mel Stampz – this site is full of gorgeous paper crafts with detailed instructions

Here’s some of my past Christmas creations:

embossed cards

glitter and design adhesives

cards and ornaments

more decorations

Have you started making your cards yet?  Maybe you’ve finished and posted them?  Pop a link to your cards in the comments so we can all have a squiz!

Easter Ham Layout

25 Nov

Here is a recent layout I whipped up…

A few years back a friend of ours came to spend Easter with us and brought this massive ham.  I’ve never seen such a big ham in my life.  It almost didn’t fit in our wee fridge!  I wanted to get in the Easter spirit but keep the layout fresh looking and to me pink, blue and yellow really represent Easter.  I’ve been going through my stash like it’s my own scrapbook store and picking out materials that I’ve been hoarding and putting them to use.  I’ve had that aqua felt trim for years so I was rather chuffed to be able to incorporate it here.

Stay tuned for more layouts and projects – I have a few to upload 🙂

happy scrappin’
