TOP PICKS FROM 2022!

It’s been another busy year of crafting here. Thanks for following me along.

I thought I would take a few minutes and share my favourite projects from the past year. So come on a little journey with me. And click on the heading of the project to take you back to the original post and read more about them. Even catch the video of many of them.

Friendly Hello Fun Fold

I loved this gorgeous Friendly Hello Paper available for Sale-A-Bration in January. And this is great fold to show both sides of the gorgeous paper. (Must try that again).

Driving By Slider Card

This was a great stamp set to create a Slider card. But you can try this with any of your stamps. What about that Sunshine and Rainbows paper. So bright and Happy. 🙂

Waves of Inspiration (Moon Effect)

I have loved creating with the Waves of Inspiration stamp set and I was so excited when I discovered how to create the moon effect with the stamps.

Half Fold Let’s Set Sail

Let’s face it – Male cards are hard to make aren’t they?? We had a great Masculine Cards Class earlier in the year. The Let’s Set Sail stamps and punch were fun to use.

Wild and Sweet Watercolouring

The Wild and Sweet Stamp set was one of my top picks from the new catalogue in May. I don’t do a lot of colouring but I loved colouring this cute Koala. I shared some tips colouring this image in the video for this card.

Tunnel Cards with Hues of Happiness

The Hues of Happiness was another of my top picks from the catalogue. I think many people also loved this suite. The Tunnel cards I created with this has been very popular.

Winter Crafternoon with Cup of Tea Bundle

The most popular event this year with the Winter Crafternoon. It was such a fun time crafting together followed by a Devonshire Tea. Watch out for more events in the new year.

A Pocket Card with Cup of Tea Bundle

Christmas Lights Diagonal Fold

Another very popular Fun Fold from this year was the Diagonal Fold Card with the Christmas Lights Bundle. Lots of people have shared their versions with me which has been so great.

Hello Hippest Hippos Half Fold Easel Card

Is there a theme here with Fun Folds that are my favourite projects for the year. I do love a Fun Fold card. This one was the Half Fold Easel Card with the Hippest Hippos Stamp set for Sale-A-Bration.

Adventurous Journey for the adventurer

Another great stamp set for the Male cards or the adventurer is the Adventurous Journey stamp set. We had a great class with this stamp set.

Merriest Moments Candle for the 12 Days of Christmas series

It was great to be part of a collaboration to share you some fantastic Christmas projects. I kicked the 12 days series off with my project, A candle with the Merriest Moments stamps and dies. You just have to go back to that post and start the 12 Days of Christmas to check out all the projects.

I hope you have enjoyed looking back at these projects. I can’t wait to share more with you in the coming year.

To lots of creating in 2022. Come and join in with me and follow along.

MINI CHRISTMAS TREAT BAG + VIDEO!

Christmas is getting closer and I’m sure you are getting frantic. Well I am anyway. Still haven’t finished the Christmas shopping – and as for cards …

Anyway, if you are in a rush but you need a speedy little treat bag for someone then I have one to share with you today. These are just the size for some chocolates or jewellery or even a Gift Card.

I shared the Snowflake Vellum bags I created for my class attendees on my Facebook last week. And everyone loved them. I thought I would put together a video to show you just how easy they are to make so you can whip up some yourself.

These are the Snowflake Vellum Treat Bags if you missed them on Facebook and Instagram.

Now here is the little bag created with the Storybook Gnomes Designer Series Paper.

The Gift Tag is one we created in class at our Tags and More class last week. I just thought it would work well with this paper. It uses the Merriest Moments Stamp set and the dies. Unfortunately the stamp set is now sold out.

These bags were inspired by ones I saw on my lovely friends Sam’s blog on Pootles. I couldn’t find the original when I went back to them. I did change these a little. But if you haven’t checked out Pootles yet you really should. Sam has some quick, easy gift bags and treat holders to create. You can find Pootles -> HERE.

You can catch the video here or now on Youtube.

Do you want to make your own?

Here are the measurements for you.

CHRISTMAS TREAT BAG

Designer Series Paper – 19cm x 13.5cm     7 ½” x 5 ¼”

Score on the long side at 6cm, 9cm, 15cm, 18cm

                                        2 3/8”, 3 ½”, 5 7/8” and 7”

I hope you like these little bags. Believe me when I say they are really quick to create.

JOY CHRISTMAS STAR!

Today I’m sharing a bonus project for our last Christmas class held this weekend.

We created this Joy Christmas Star. It could be a tree decoration or a gift tag. I used the Stitched Stars Dies. The star was inspired by Sara Douglass. You can see her version -> HERE.

It looks so lovely hanging on the tree.

I hope you all are getting your Christmas gifts and wrapping sorted. It’s crazy that it is less than a week.

Have a great day,

Jenny

WEDNESDAY’S WOW! #130 – EXTEND YOUR DIECUTS!

Wednesday’s WOW! #130 – Extending your diecuts to make them larger.

This is a tip I use so often. It works well with punched out shapes too. If you have a die or a punch that you wish would be just a little larger, cut the piece in half and separate the pieces to adhere them under the images or sentiment.

This is what Stampin’ Up! have done in the tag on page 3 of the Mini Catalogue with the Christmas Season bundle and the Painted Christmas Designer Series Paper -(and it’s a gorgeous tag they have created too).

Try that with your diecuts or punches next time.

Happy stamping,

Jenny
