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_9383 (Medium)Here it is, the last in my graphic 45 12 days of christmas series. I think I have combined everything on this one – layering, fussy cutting, lace and chipboard pieces.I have loved using this paper, still have some left, but today I have been working on more christmas cards using up my kaisercraft paper. I must concentrate on using up some older papers, as I have run out of room to buy more so there may be some posts where we revisit some old favourites! Til tomorrow….

IMG_9380 (Medium)For this christmas card I used the 8 x8 pad from Graphic 45 – 12 days of christmas, and the matching chipboard pieces. Quite a bit of fussy cutting and some layering on this one!a bit of kindyglitz to finish, and no ribbon for a bit of a change…one more in this series, and then we will move on to something else.I have been busy with house work today, but I am off now to the craft room for a couple of hours – some lessons to set up for january, seems so far away but will be with us before we know it.Til tomorrow…

IMG_9377 (Medium)IMG_9378 (Medium)I decided to show these cards together as each pair uses the same images from the 12 x 12 sheet of graphic 45 12 days of christmas papers,but I did something different with each one.I have used some of the matching chipboard pieces from the same range, and added ribbon, bling,and bakers twine as well as a liberal amount of fussy cutting and layering.taught a class toady, and my family are all out tonight putting on a wrestling show so it’s off to the fish and chip shop now for me , then an uninterrupted  night of crafting to follow… bliss….. til tomorrow…..

Graphic 45 12 days of christmas number 3

IMG_6084 (Medium)The paper I used her ( graphic 45 12 days of christmas) was from the 8″ pad, so its the same image as last nights card but smaller, which allowed for a bit more decoration. I matted the image onto some green bazzil cardstock, and layered some fussy cut papers in the corner. The card base is made from Stampin Up cardstock. I have a class tomorrow – so looking forward to seeing my ladies, so must go and pack my bag! Til tomorrow….
