Tis' the season.......................

Hi guys

Well it's my turn to update the blog this week & I just wanted to start by saying A huge congratulations to Sue, Craig & the team.....your hard work has certainly paid off as that is the best OTP project I've ever seen!!...LOL

On a serious note it truly is an amazing shop you have created & I'd just like to wish you every success for many years to come!!....Can't wait to physically come & shop til I drop!!
It's a HUGE credit to you all!!!

Well as the title says...Tis' the season so this week I thought I would share some quick, cheap & easy Christmas ideas to make with you all.
First is some Christmas place cards I've made using left over materials, very basic using Bazzill card for the these were made using scraps I don't have exact measurements as they are different sizes, roughly 7cm square, then with pattern paper cut 6.5cm square for the centre. Using a scrap of co-ordinating pattern paper I used a small circle scalloped punch & added a 1 1/2 in circle on top & added our initials. Using felt i cut out small holly leaves & added a single red button in between them.
Using the same My minds eye paper I cut a strip 3 1/2 inch wide and placed around a candle added felt holly leaves & a button & some Christmas ribbon to finish my centre piece.

One of my fondest childhood memories was the Christmas pudding my pop use to make & that is where I got the inspiration from to make this Christmas card.
Using felt I cut a rough pattern out & stitched it to my card, I then stamped a holly deco using the Kaiser clear stamps and coloured using water colour crayons, added a title and using dimensional magic to highlight Xmas.

Another card using leftover pattern paper & some felt for the stocking, the matt was made with my cuttlebug and a swirl embossing folder. The title was created using Thickers.

Last one is my tree decoration using my extra lge Marvy scalloped circle punch, a 1 inch circle punch to staple the string to hang & a small ribbon bow to cover the staple...very easy & effective way to add decorations to your family tree & something the kiddo's would be able to help with also.

As this is my last blog post for the year I'd just like to wish all the Scraploot scrappers & visitors a very Merry Christmas full of fun, love & laughter with the ones you love and a safe & Happy new year.

Until next time

Happy scrapping

Kylie :)
