REQUEST YOUR 2022 MINI CATALOGUE!

I know it’s a crazy, busy time.  I am just preparing all the new catalogues to send out.  The 2022 Mini Catalogue starts on January 4th. Woo Hoo!

Would you like one? 

Just take a quick minute and comment here or email me at jghayward@yahoo.com and say a big YES! I will get one in the mail to you very soon. (Australian residents only).

Now back to your crazy Christmas preparations.

I look forward to sharing more creating with you in the New Year. Thank you for all your support this year.

Have a wonderful Christmas time and a great 2022.

TASTEFUL TOUCHES CHRISTMAS CARD!

On our Team Zoom Christmas chat on the weekend we were given a Challenge. Use Non-Christmas products to create a Christmas card – in 20 minutes! YIKES!

I have to say it took me half that time to work out what I was going to do but here is my card.

I ended up using the Tasteful Touches stamp set and the Watercolor Shapes Stamp set. Also who would have thought that the You’re A Peach Designer Series Paper would work for Christmas.

What would you do? Why not give it a try.

Hope all your preparations are going well. It’s a crazy time.

Have a great week,

Jenny

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

VERY MERRY SWEET STOCKINGS CHRISTMAS!

Another cute one with the Sweet Little Stockings Bundle and the Sweet Stockings Designer Series Paper.

Did you know that the dies cut these stockings from the paper out?? Too clever. It saves a lot of cutting yourself right. 🙂

I also used the Merry Melody 3D Embossing Folder (of course added upside down, LOL!)

PAINTED CHRISTMAS FLAP FOLD!

This card was one of the projects from my recently Heartfelt Christmas Online Class. I don’t often share these projects with you but thought I would show you this one today. I’m not going to share the measurements for them though. That’s a special part of taking the class. 🙂

This is a Flap Fold Style card. By the way isn’t the Painted Christmas paper just gorgeous??

Check the inside.

The tree is diecut with the Majestic Mountain Dies.

Watch out for more Online classes next year. I hope you will be able to join in with them then.

Have a great week,

Jenny

THINKING OF YOU THIS CHRISTMAS WITH THE EVER EDEN PAPER!

A Christmas card version for you today with the Ever Eden Specialty Paper. I paired it with the Merriest Moments stamp set. They work well together.

Add some Red Rhinestones for some sparkle.

This card really doesn’t take too long to put together. A little diecutting and a little sticking.

Hope you like it.

Have a great day,

Jenny
