A page from a friend

Just a quick post today, my dear friend Christine gave me an unused page kit she had been given but didn't want and this is what I made. From Lauren and Joshua's ages I can tell this picture was taken over twenty years ago but it really doesn't seem that long, wow don't the years stream by after you reach thirty?

I am due to do a couple of workshops over the next few months and I thought I would show you the display board I have made to showcase what we will make.

Cover case

Here is my version of the cover shot on the SU Holiday catalogue. I used the Ornament Keepsakes bundle, Mixed Medley stamp set, snow flurry bigz die and the 11/4 Scallop circle punch. I took the snowflake dies apart and only used five points instead of six. It looks much better in reality than this photo shows.

It's a wrap

 I created some of my own Christmas wrapping paper using the new SU stamp sets - Snowflake Soiree and Joyous Celebrations. I brought ordinary brown paper and stamped randomly. I was very pleased with the finished result.
I wrapped a parcel and decorated it with tissue paper and die cut shapes.
Lastly I made a tissue paper flower using the new framelits - Floral flames.Cutting four layers of each die and then holding them together with a brad in the centre. I pulled up and shaped each layer individually, time consuming but worth it. I love the effect the finished flower has.
