playing around......

After seeing a tutorial posted by a crafty chum on the crafty facebook page I run I set too to have a go - trouble was I had non of the kit list so improvisation was in order.

20 stamped and punched ornaments by stampin up - some lace, ribbon , button and twine
and here I have an ornament - now the pics don't do it justice really - its about  5 inches big
and I tidied up the back with my personalised stamp.

August Christmas card class

 This month we were playing with cute so here is a gorgeous image from stampendous from last years range and lush papers by basic grey.
We also played a little with fantasy film with one of Clarity stamps night before Christmas stamps.
This time the papers are by Bo Bunny and very out of my Christmas comfort zone!

a little messing around

saw a bobbin wreath on someones blog then went back to look when I had bobbins and couldn't find it so I made it up as I went along.
These bobbins are tiny about 2cm high so didn't take much covering with Basic grey paper.  The fiddly bit was threading the buttons inbetween the bobbins with wire.
a little ribbon and its done.  All in my fav colours of red and green for Christmas with my ultimate hearts desire gingham ribbon to boot.
Have this in mind as a little Christmas stocking filler for a very dear friend.  Been thinking of her lots today so its seemed apt to make her something.  
Crafty Hazlenut is asking us to use our favourite colours on crafty Christmas projects this week so I hope this fits the bill!!
You can see the challenge here
