It's Beginning To Look A Lot Like Christmas....

Firstly, I must apologise for being so slack with my blogging lately.
Life has been busier than usual, as I'm sure it is for all of you at this time of year.

We had a really fun weekend at Scrap Pile a couple of weeks ago. All the DT members ran Christmas classes & everyone got into the Christmas spirit by creating loads of lovely projects.
I ran 2 classes.
The first was for a cute set of chipboard fridge magnets. They make a great gift for teachers, friends or family.
Here is my finished set.



I made the little box on my Cricut machine to present them in, & tied it up with a pretty bow & added a tag.


My second class was for a Gift Card Holder. It's a lovely way to present a gift card & can be adapted for any occasion.


If you'd like to see all the classes, just head over to Scrap Pile & join up.
This is another project I did for Christmas. I bought a Kaiser Panorama Frame & made this pretty Christmas plaque to hang on the wall. I've used a combination of Making Memories, Cosmo Cricket & Kaiser papers & the gorgeous poinsettia flowers are also Making Memories.

I've been busy getting all my Christmas cards made also. This lot I did over a few days & ended up making 41 cards!!! I set myself a bit of a challenge too. I wasn't allowed to buy anything new, I had to use up all my older Christmas papers & embellishments.
My term on the design team at Scrap Pile is finishing at the end of this month so they are looking for a new card maker to take over the position.
If you are interested in being on a design team, I'd really recommend you give it a go & put in an application. All the information can be found in the forum & applications close on the 14th December.
They are the greatest group of girls to be a part of & you will thoroughly enjoy it.

I hope your Christmas preparations are going well :)
I'll be back soon with some new projects to share.

Wow I am just loving all your shares and seeing your Christmas cards lined up I can understand why you are not blogging. You have been very productive and they are all so awesome.

Wow! SO many cards! I knew you'd done a lot but it looks even more when you show them off like that! Great work!

I'm sad your Scrap Pile DT days are coming to a close. You have been a fabulous inspiration and you have been so committed. Well done! You should be proud!

Love the plaque too!
