What have I been up to?

Hi everyone.

I hope you are all well and that your lead up to Christmas is going splendidly. Things are finally starting to slow down in this household, so I can start enjoying this time of year.

Christmas tree decorated...check
Christmas shopping done.....check
Presents made......check
Presents wrapped.....check
Presents sent......check
Visited Santa...check (I will share a photo when I get my scanner out)
Supplies bought for Christmas lunch ....not check...we can't be too organized now can we lol. I will be braving the crowds on Thursday to do that.

What else have I been up to. Well here are a few things I have been making of late.

These cards for a Christmas card swap

These door hangers for my Tuesday Tip last week over at the Kaisercraft Blog ( I have made one for Em too, but I was too lazy to take a photo).
And these felt cupcakes for a few very special ladies.

I also just realized I haven't shared my layouts from the Kaisercraft Q2 release. So here they are.


and my favourite of them all, THE DEAR SANTA COLLECTION
I don't think I have anything else to share at the moment. I plan to have a bit of a break and then get back into the swing of things after Christmas.

To all the wonderful, beautiful people that read my blog I thank you from the bottom of my heart. I hope this Christmas season treats you well, and that your New Year is filled with much love and happiness.

So from my family to yours
Have a very Merry Christmas and a blessed New Year.

Take care

Monday Madness

Good Morning everyone.

I hope the weekend treated you all well. How fast did this last week go. I don't know where it went. I had a million (okay maybe not a million) things I wanted to get done, and I don't think I even finished half of them lol. Christmas is always such a crazy time of year though, and had I been better organized I probably wouldn't be as rushed off my feet lol. Every year I say I will start things early, but does that ever happen......nope:) next year will be different though.....maybe.

So today I have a few 123 Scrapbook creations to share. The first few were for the Christmas cybercrop. Rather than do challenges for this cybercrop, we decided we would just show a few gifts that people could make.

My first project was this altered jar. Inside it has a packet of seeds, and although it doesn't show clearly, some dragonflies on a branch.

An altered Ferrero Rocher Box.....yummmmmm

and an altered clipboard ( I wasn't happy how this turned out)

I also made another project for my Renee's Reno's section. These are Kaisercraft Coasters that have been decoarted with Glimmermist, Glimmer Screens and stamps. I quite like the way they turned out. If you want to see how i made these coasters pop over to the 123 Scrapbook forum here. Well that is about it for today.

I have a few more creations yet to share, so hopefully I will be back on by the end of the week (unless it flies past like the last one lol).

Have a great week and take care.

Kaiser Christmas

Hi everyone.

How fast are these weeks passing by. I can't even remember where last week went. So I promised in my last post to show a few more of my creations. With the gorgeous Christmas ranges that Kaisercraft released in Q2, I was inspired to start getting festive and make some Christmas decorations. Normally I don't go too overboard in decorations, but this year the festive spirit has well and truly come knocking so I will be decking the to speak.

First up is these Christmas hangings made using the Dear Santa range. These were really easy to make...believe me they were!

Next is the Kaisercraft Triple Frame Set which I decorated using the lovely Belle range. These frames were a blast to make.

Well that's it for today. Hopefully you have been bitten by the Christmas bug as well. I also have a tonne of layouts to show you, but that will have to wait until another day.

Have a great Tuesday everyone.

Take care
