School Christmas Cards

My son has finished school for christmas so last week, it was time to make the christmas cards for his friends. I didn't have loads of time but saw this on Pinterest and made my own version in Publisher. Here is how they turned out...

I made some baubles on the computer as I didn't have enough buttons and pearls to make all of the baubles on all of the cards. I imported the bows as an image and added the sentiment.

All that was needed was some glamour dust and some embellishments!

I rounded the corners with my corner chomper.

 My little fella gave them out with a father christmas chocolate telling everyone his mum had made his cards bless him:-)

I have made a rather special purchase to help me make my main christmas cards, more on that in my next post!

Hope your christmas plans are going well. I can't wait to spend some time with my little fella, the excitement for christmas is growing in this house by the day!


Basic Grey Papers

I am really enjoying my Friday scrapbooking mornings at Autumn Cottage, I love catching up with my friend Linzi and having a chat with the other ladies there. This time I didn't have time to prepare anything so I grabbed some Basic Grey papers from the Wisteria kit and a photo and hoped for the best!

I picked a background paper in a pale yellow and mounted my photo onto some grey and pale blue plain card.

The flowers were on another sheet from the same range of papers and I cut these out, mounted some petals with 3d dots and used glossy accents to make them stand out. Perfect pearls were used on the inside of the stamen. I inked the edges of the papers with purple to match the flower.

I have created a tag and tucked this under the photo so that the soppy stuff can be hidden underneath!

It's not my usual choice of colours or style but I am pleased with the result and for the opportunity to use some papers with flowers, I don't get to use that too much with two boys!

Hope your week is fabulous and thanks for visiting me.
