It's not like me to be organised and it's still not like me to be organised as these are the first contributions to Christmas I have made so far this year. Us card makers are supposed to be organised and happily making Christmas cards in the summer – but not me!! I will be frantically making my cards after the last posting date, stressed to the eyeballs which is as much part of my Christmas traditions as decorating the tree. I really love the Notebook in the middle which was made using the new Stampin Up Christmas Jungle Simply Scrappin kit. I still have loads of supplies left over and so will make some other items using this kit and show you more photo's of the inside once I have lots of items to show you.
The Christmas cards I made were made using the basic black, whisper white, old olive cardstock, old olive patterns paper and vellum. I really loved the colour scheme and tried to steer away from the traditional red and green combo. The snowflake stamp is from the Winter Post set which is £23.95
and for me the cherry on the top is the most gorgeous ribbon I have ever seen! It's the new striped grosgrain ribbon, 1 1/4" wide and £8.95 for 9.1m so less than £1 per metre. It comes in pumpkin pie (perfect for Halloween), Chocolate Chip, Basic Black and Old Olive. I guarantee that you will be the ribbon lots more on my blog and I am sad enough to choose my Christmas wrapping paper to compliment the ribbon :-).
Have a great weekend and thank for stopping by….
