12 WEEKS OF CHRISTMAS REVIEW!

Did you enjoy the recent 12 Weeks of Christmas projects?? There were a lot of awesome projects by the team. What was your favourite project do you think???  I would love to hear what you thought.

I was looking at my projects the other day and noticed a theme.  I didn’t plan it like this though. These are my projects I created over the 12 Weeks.  Do you notice anything???

I seemed to have a theme of using the Nordic Noel DSP and different Gift Packaging that Stampin’ Up! has available.  I have to say it is so great that there are so many different sizes and types available.  These do make dressing up gifts and treats quick and easy.  For these projects I used the Tiny Treat Boxes (only available now until January 5th), the Kraft Gift boxes and the Tag a Bag Boxes.

If you missed these posts you can find them all here.

If you want to check all the projects from our 12 Weeks of Christmas then just click on the tag below of “12 Weeks of Christmas” and all the posts should come up.

It might be a bit late to make any of these projects for this Christmas but maybe they will be useful for next Christmas or another occasion.

Have a wonderful Christmas surrounded by the ones you love and may you take some time to reflect on the Greatest Gift we have been given.

I am taking a break from blogging for a week so I will see you with more creative projects in 2015. Thanks for being part of my journey this year. 🙂

A SHABBY CHRISTMAS STAR!!

I was playing around a couple of weeks ago with some “bits” that were sitting around on my table.  I love this “shabby” style of Christmas card I made. (If you could call it that style!).  Here it is.

P1140936

I had a piece of silver glimmer paper with a star cut out from a previous project.  I really didn’t want to waste it.   Hey! It was nicely centred and positioned the right way especially compared to some other stars I had cut recently.  I layered a scrap piece of DSP from Nordic Noel DSP onto the Lost Lagoon base card.  I adhered the silver Glimmer piece onto this and added a smaller star cut from Lost Lagoon.  To the centre I added a little silver button and a White Baker’s Twine bow.  The greeting from Ornamental Pine is stamped on a strip of Whisper White card. I flagged the end of the strip.

This card really didn’t take that long to put together.  It is a one-of-a-kind though!! 🙂

Thanks for stopping by today,

CURVY KEEPSAKES HANDBAG!!

I am sure you have seen all the amazing creations around using the Curvy Keepsakes Framelits. They are so clever.  I have been making some projects myself with them and I will show you these another time.  When I first saw the Framelits I thought it would make a cute little handbag. Recently I have seen some floating around the internet.  I thought I would show you my Christmas version – and it uses the set ‘December Wonder’ that I have been focusing on this past week.

P1140939

I am sorry I didn’t take a side-on view.  It would give you a better idea how it looks.  I will try and update this later. To create the bag I have used some of the Nordic Noel DSP.  I just cut the paper to size to fit half of the Framelit, the section with the curvy handle.  I cut 2 of these out.  Where the base is I trimmed off about 2cm (3/4″).  I added Sticky Strip to one of the bases and assembled the two together.  You can add some little chocolate treats and tie around some ribbon and add a tag.  For this tag I stamped the “Very Merry” in Garden Green and punched it out with the 1″ circle punch.  I cut one of the Oval tags that come with the Curvy Keepsakes framelits from the Gold Foil Sheets and layered them together with a little Real Red banner cut from the Bitty Banners Framelits.  I added 3 small pearls on the tag to finish and hung that from the ribbon with Whisper White Baker’s Twine. A cute treat bag in no time!!

I hope you enjoyed the projects this past week with the ‘December Wonder’ stamp set.  It is a fun set.  This is available in the Holiday Supplement Catalogue but these products are only available stocks are limited.  So get in soon for any of these items.  You can order directly from me or from my store HERE.

I hope you can join me again this week.  I will be away on a Family Holiday but I have some posts scheduled so don’t forget to stop by,

12 WEEKS OF CHRISTMAS – WEEK 4!

Latte 12 weeks Header

We bring you another Christmas project this week for our 12 Weeks of Christmas – and today it is my turn to share a project.  I do hope you like it.  Today I have a Tiny Treat Gift Holder for you.

P1140690This little Treat Holder will fit a variety of treats all together for you to give someone special this Christmas.  Really it is just so simple.  I have used 3 of the Tiny Treat Boxes available in the Holiday Catalogue.  These are a bargain at $11.95 (AUS) for 24 boxes.  They are so cute and there are so many different ways you can use them.  This would be a really cute gift to give someone as a little extra or for those “Hard to buy for” people.

For this I have adhered 3 of the boxes together with Sticky Strip and then decorated them using the Nordic Noel Designer Series Paper.  I have added some stars from the Bright and Beautiful stamp set and cut with the Star Framelits. Additional stars were cut from Gold Foil Sheets with the smallest Stars Framelits.  The gorgeous Red Satin Ribbon finishes the box off.  Of course, you can decorate these boxes however you like.  Fill some Cellophane bags with treats and tie them off.  I used the Gold Twine for this.

If you would like a detailed tutorial to create this project then just drop me a message or email.  If you need any products to create the project then let me know or you can order directly at my Online Store Here.

And of course, we have a special bundle for you this week to help you create this project. These are the items you will receive in your Bundle AND receive 10% off!  

Bundle Price is $44.80 plus Shipping and Handling.

I hope you like today’s project.  I would love to see your version when you create it so make sure you drop me a photo.
 
Happy Christmas creating!!

STAMP-A-LATTE HOLIDAY BLOG HOP!!

Latte Holiday blog hop banner

Welcome to the First Stamp A Latte Holiday Blog Hop.  We all have some great projects from the Stampin’ Up! Holiday Catalogue to share with you today.  You may have just come from Narelle’s blog Here or you may be starting out here. Either way sit back and enjoy your little hop around.

Today I am focusing on the Snowflake Thinlets. I really like this Thinlets set.  They are so versatile for a number of different occasions not just Christmas.  Not only does it contain the Thinlet to create the Flip card but it has a 2 different size snowflakes, a tree, a heart, banner and 3 words (Brrr, Joy, snow).

snowflake thinlets

On to my projects.  I have made a cute little tag box and a flip card.

P1140514

Firstly, the card…

P1140516

I have used the Nordic Noel DSP with Baked Brown Sugar and Cherry Cobbler cardstock. The snowflakes stamped on the card are from the ‘Cheerful Tags’ set.  They co-ordinate so well with this die I think.  I cut a large snowflake in Cherry Cobbler and a smaller one in Baked Brown Sugar to layer them together.  The Rhinestone in the centre was coloured with the Blendablilites.

What made this Thinlet die even more useful is that recently I discovered that you can cut the centre large snowflake out.  I was watching the Stampin’ Up! Snowflake Thinlet video here and they showed this little tip.  I will show you below.

Cutting a Thinlet Snowflake.

Cut a piece of DSP or cardstock larger than the shape and cut it out with your Big Shot.

P1140456 - Copy

Turn the Snowflake to line it up in the Die the other way to cut it out completely.  I found it easier to lay the Die upside down on a cutting plate and place the DSP or cardstock into the Die rather than try and line the Die over the paper. Then you can just lay the other cutting plate on top and cut it.

P1140457

This is what you end up with. How cool!

P1140458

 

Now on to the box.

P1140518

Once again layering some cut Snowflakes on the top.  The greeting is from the ‘Good Greetings’ set that you can get for free this month. Check the blog post here if you missed those details.

Now on to the inside.

P1140519

I used the Nordic Noel DSP again. I added a strip of DSP on the top of the acetate lid but it doesn’t wrap right around.  I lined the bottom of the box too.  This one was the reverse side of the DSP strip used on the lid.  It holds these cute tags I made.  I just made 3 but you could easily fit lots more in there.

Here they are close-up.

P1140520

I used the 1 3/4″ circle Punch to cut the Baked Brown Sugar circles. The tree and snowflake are cut from the Thinlets.  The Star is one from the Star Framelits set.  These Banners were cut with the Bitty Banner Framelits.  Here is the back. The “to” and “from” is from the ‘Cheerful Tags’ set again.

P1140521

 

OK now you have had a photo overload.  I will spare you anymore so you can be on your way.  If you would like to know how I made the cute Tag Box then stop by tomorrow and I will post a tutorial.  I think I have taken up enough of your time.  You need to get on to the next blog now.  Thanks for stopping by today 🙂

Remember to stop by and comment on each blog so you can be in the running for a prize.  You will go in a draw for a Trim the Tree DSP Stack and a pack of Rhinestones (Australian Residents Only & Stampin’ Up! Demonstrators are ineligible for the Blog Candy).  Now on to Virginia’s blog Here.

A TRIO OF SANTA’S!

Have you seen this cute set in the Holiday Catalogue “Get Your Santa On”.  I love  colouring the images.  I have a few things in mind with this set but first I just played around with some simple cards.  Check them out!

P1140434

Aren’t they cute!

They are similar layouts.  The one on the right is one we did at my Stamp-A-Stacks on the weekend. I used the ‘On Point’ Embossing Folder and the Nordic Noel DSP.  I also used the Starburst Framelits or the Circle Framelits.  The red ribbon is the Real Red Satin Woven Ribbon.  I love that ribbon.  It is so easy to use and tie.

To colour him I used the Cherry Cobbler Blendabilities pack.  The lightest colour is a good match to Real Red.  How good is that!!  I used the Nude colour in the Skin Tone pack for his cheeks and the darkest colour in the Smoky Slate pack. You can’t see it in this photo but I used some Dazzling Diamonds applied with the 2 way Glue pen.

Here they are close-up.
