Desk Calendar

Today I am back to share one of the gifts I gave the girls attending my classes, It was a Desk Calender & Memo Pad, made using acrylic photo frames from Kmart. I made twenty all up & no two were the same, some I finished with butterflies others with flowers & some with just ribbon.

Thanks for dropping by.

As Promised

I am back as promised & feeling a little flat from our staff Christmas party,which was a great success.

For our last class we made some small items you could give as as Kris Kringle or Teacher gifts.
I chose a colour scheme of Purple & Blue for the evening & tried to create gifts using these colours, the first two matched but the last one was definitely the odd one out.

The first item the girls made was this little embossed glassine bag containing 6 gift cards.

the next was this triangle chocolate box

& finally a ribbon bookmark & matching peg magnet.

That's all for now peeps,

One Party Down One to Go

 One party down One to go! I held my final class for the year yesterday & tomorrow we have our Christmas party for our staff so lots of cooking still to do, at least the studio only need a quick tidy & vacuum & it was all ready to go again.

Thankfully Emily was finished school for the year as she was a great help, she punched out the 165 ornaments needed for the gift bags alone & she bundled up all the kits once I had them cut & unlike myself everyone ended up with the correct amount of bits needed.

I have the most fabulous bunch of ladies that I would now call friends who attend & I like to spoil them, so each received a wrapped gift of some stamping stuff, a calender & memo note holder & a Rudolf skinny treat bag filled with jaffas which Emily also made for me.

 The tables set up with the Gift bags.

All the fabulous food the ladies brought to share

 Sandy, Louise, Robyn & Alex whipping up a triangle chocolate box

Julie & Michelle creating their Ribbon Bookmark & Peg Magnet.

 Catherine & Roz posing for the camera whilst using the bigshot.

I did have some more photos I took whilst we were enjoying supper but they are not the best.

I will be back on Sunday to share with you the projects we made.

Till then

Just a little glitter

Hello Everyone,
Sorry for the lack of posts, the lead up to Christmas is proving to be a tad hectic as I am sure it is for everybody else. Hopefully next week will be a little quieter. This week I have my end of year celebration on Thursday evening with 15 lovely ladies whom regularly attend my card classes, so gifts & gift bags to make (photos to come later) Teacher & staff presents to make for my sons school. & then our Business Christmas party to cater for on Saturday night & a couple of presents still to buy.

I do have a quick card to share, It is one I  made last week & it fits the challenge of "glittering it on" over at The Outlawz challenge site.

Thanks for dropping by.

As sweet as you Birthday

Tonight's card I have to share is a CAS birthday card I made using the $5 PTI stamp set called Sweet as can be (it was a real bargain). I just loved how it turned out it's nearly good enough to eat.

I have also used an embossing folder on the base of the cone for a little texture & finished the card with a little hot pink bakers twine.

Thanks for dropping by.

My 10 Minute Card

Today I have a card to share that I made under pressure this afternoon, when I realised my son didn't have card for the party he was attending.

I had plans of copying an earlier card I had made using a motorbike, well I did except I used different colours & a different orientation (first colours that came to mind). All up it took me about 10 minutes & I even decorated the envelope. It's nothing flash but my  sons friend loved it.

What was even better I had my camera on the bench when I finished so I snapped a quick piccie before heading off.

Thanks for dropping by.
