Christmas Fun!


We're quickly counting down to Christmas and the fun has only just started!! This week it's been all about my boys! We set up the Christmas Tree on Saturday night, Christmas Carols by Candlelight on Sunday night, Luke's school Christmas concert yesterday evening and today was Matthew's childcare Christmas party. Maybe there will be some Christmas events for me to attend soon, just for me!!

But I love Christmas, I love the festitivities, the traditions and yes even the craziness. Although I have to admit, I seem to be behind more this year, then I would usually be!!

But I am making some progress on my Christmas cards. These cards are just two samples of eight cards I made at a Christmas Stamp-a-Stack. This event was held Chris Parker-Barnes, another SU demonstrator in the Avid Inkers Stampin' Up! team that I am part of. So all credit to her for the lovely designs, although the artwork is mine!!

Aargh! The colours look terrible in these photos, but they'll have to do till I take some more tomorrow with natural light!

So what do you think of the scallop punching of the squares. Don't they look fantastic! They are not as hard as they look. Let me know if you need instructions on how to do them, I'll try to explain logically!!

Here's what I used:

Stamps: Christmas Classics
Inks: Kiwi Kiss & Real Red
Papers: Kiwi Kiss, Real Red & Whisper White CS
Other: Scallop edge punch, scallop oval punch, oval punch & gold brad

I hope you enjoy and feel inspired to make a stack of cards, with simple designs you can make quickly. Simplicity is the wonderful key!
