IMG_1785 (Medium)IMG_1790 (Medium)IMG_1791 (Medium)IMG_1794 (Medium)here we go – the last 4 Christmas cards for this year! This is graphic 45 12 days of Christmas paper collection – it was last years release I think, but I had a bit left over and made these four cards with it. All stampin up cardstock, and mainly all fussy cutting, with the odd ribbon, doily,lace and punched edge and leaves.I taught a class over at rhe retirement village this afternoon, and have been experimenting in the craft room with some fancy folded cards – I would like to do a class with them, but have to perfect this technique myself first!Til tomorrow….

IMG_1787 (Medium)I have so many cards waiting to be shown, but we have to return to Christmas otherwise Christmas will be over! So, for a few days I will flood my blog with all things Christmas, and then we will put them all behind us for another year and move on to all the other paper collections I have been playing with! To start, Graphic 45 T’was the night before Christmas paper collection, just one tonight because I want to spend a little time explaining how I made this very simple easel card. I made a 14 x14 cm card base with some red cardstock, and just folded the front of the card into the centre fold. thats it – so easy, but the best way to showcase this image which I fussy cut from a 12 x 12 paper from the collection. I did a little more fussy cutting to make the front stoppers, and the holly frame,covered the base with more patterned paper,and added a strip of lace, bow,and kindyglitz.Til tomorrow….

kaisercraft yuletide 19,20 and 21 .. the last..

IMG_4974 (Medium)IMG_4977 (Medium)Here are the final three Christmas cards made using Kaisercraft Yuletide¬† collection. these three are all made using the 6″ pad, with just some ribbon and liquid pearls to embellish.( The second one also uses some holly pieces from the collectables of the same collection). I have enjoyed creating my cards with this paper, but its time to finally move on and tomorrow we will have totally different non – christmas cards! Today I have spent a couple of hours in the craft room – it’s super warm here today ( read Hot) so not a day for too much moving around, the craft room is the best place to be. Til tomorrow….

The bottom three were made with bits and pieces I had left over, so I added some die cuts and punched borders to stretch the collection a little bit further.This weekend my crafting time has been spent making my personal Christmas cards. I have been using graphic 45 Twas the night before Christmas, and also The twelve days of christmas, which is a previous years collection and I am trying to use it all up.
