Another Iris Fold Tree

Here is another of my Iris Fold trees. I love this pattern. Hope you are all surviving the lead up to Christmas. Have a lovely Sunday.

Iris Folding Christmas Card


Wow I have been so busy with getting ready for Christmas I havent been to my blog for awhile. Here is one of the iris fold Christmas cards I have made. I love this pattern that was made by Valita Reynolds. She is a very talented iris folder and has made so many wonderful patterns and shares them with her fellow card makers.
I am so behind in giving out my cards this year even though I had them made so early.

Treat Boxes and Candy Canes

I saw a tutorial on SCS for these treat boxes so I made a few. The first one I used a retired SU scrappin pack and then I rolled the second one with a retired jumbo roller. They are so quick and easy. I then saw a great tutorial on Marelle Taylor's blog on the candy cane toppers so made my version of them and sent them down to my Family in Manjimup for Christmas as I wont be seeing them at Christmas.








Shopping Lists for presents



At my last stamp clubs I decided to teach masking as the technique so I made these shopping lists and had the girls all make one. I am giving them as presents this year. I of course am keeping one for myself as I love having a shopping list on the fridge where I know where to find it.
The second one I used the lovely stamp set that Shelli sent to all the demonstrators as a gift. I love it and had fun colouring in. It is a level 3 hostess set that will be in next years catalogue.

Some more Christmas cards

I thought I would show you some more of my Christmas cards.
This one is using Crazy for Christmas. It is cased out of the Stampin' Up! Idea book and Catalogue. I have used Cranberry Crisp, Handsome Hunter and Buckeroo Blue. Its a little crooked now that I look at it but you get the idea.....







I did this one with the set Good Things Grow. It is a very simple card that I cased. I have used Whisper white card and Glorious Green and Real Red ink.
















This one is again Cranberry Crisp and Mellow Moss, Night of Navy and Very Vanilla. I love this set, Hung up on the Holidays. I also used Print Pattern background and Many Merry Messages

















Another card Cased from the catty. Again Hung up on Holidays but this time the colours are Vintage Violet, Garden green, and Almost Amethyst.

















I made this card using the Petal prints outline stamp for the branches and Mostly flowers to make the baubles using a circle template. Also used the set Wonderful words. Colours are Tempting Turquoise, Yoyo Yellow and Real Red.

Mini Catalogue Launch

On Saturday Lee-Anne and I had our Summer Mini Catalogue launch. It went off well. We did 2 cards each and a 3D project each.


The first card is one that I cased from the front cover of the Mini. I love the colours and I used the enchante designer paper. The colours are Pale Plum and Perfect Plum with Certainly Celery.







This is the card Lee-Anne made using Cool Carribean and Black and the stamp set Love Matters.






This is Lee-Anne's card that we did as well on Saturday, made using the lovely new set Easy Elegance. Backgrounds too. Paisley and By defenition. Colours are Buckaroo Blue and Black And Cranberry Crisp







I made this one with my favourite Stem Silhouettes. I used Sage Shadow and Handsome Hunter and the technique Versamark resist for the background and embossed the front piece with white EP.


My 3D project was a covered Notepad. I used the Loves Me DP with Tempting Turquoise and the Friends stamp out of Love Matters.

I havent got a photo of Lee-Annes project yet but we made lovely nugget boxes with 4 nuggets in.
