Crafty Christmas Club - December Edition

Back for our last share of the year.  Phew!  What a big year this was.  A project for each 25th of the month (so 12 projects) plus our different themes throughout the year and finishing off with a handful more of Christmas inspiration.  
I don't know about you but I have found with all that has gone on this year more and more people have been sending cards this year.  which for us card makers is an awesome.  This project was actually inspired by a customer of mine.  She is 93 and still loving life.  She absolutely loves frogs.  And her carer asked me to make it for her.  I just loved how it turned off. 

These are an old digital frog set I had from my Craftin Desert Diva days.  The santa hats are a random clip art I found on the internet that I coloured and cut out.  These little amphibians fit perfectly with the Christmas colours.  Hoppy, hoppy Chirstmas! 
Not sure I will get a chance to share any more projects before the new year as I have taken a little time off from the craftroom to spend time with family. 
We also have some other participants with us this week.  Please check out the links for their awesome projects. 

 If I don't then Merry Christmas and Happy New Year to you all and may 2021 bring you lots of creative time, good health and brighter days. Take care.

Festival Of Christmas - Quick and Simple

Welcome back for some more Christmas inspiration.  
This weeks theme is as the heading says Quick and Simple. 
I have done 2 examples of this.  Same design, just in 2 different colour combo's. 

I am a traditional coloured girl, but this year I have really fallen for the blue and silver combo. 

Very simple yet very cute.  Simply stamp a background stamp on the front.  I used the MFT set Secret Santa.  The sentiment is from The Ton.  Bold, yet elegant.  The baubles hanging from sentiment are from the MFT Holiday Penguin set (I have used this set so much.  Definitely got my moneys worth with this one).
Through on a couple of gems and voila!  Not much to it but perfect for the occasion.  
Join again for next week as it is our last project for this Festival Of Christmas event.  
Until then...happy crafting!

Festival Of Christmas - Appreciation Gifts

Been busy gearing up for this silly season.  Then again I guess that is what everyone else is doing too! lol

This weeks share is appreciation gifts.  
What I am about to show you was what I made for my class ladies this year, in thanks for coming to my classes I run monthly.  

In the current (almost over) mini Catalogue for Stampin'Up I bought the carrier and the cups to match.  Decorated them in some wrapping paper and filled them with hot chocolate and marshmallows and the other with mixed chocolates.  
Just wish I had saved some for myself...hahaha!

These were so simple to decorate and looked fab when all lined up in a row.  
Stay tuned for more projects leading up to Christmas.  
Happy Crafting.
