Tags and Trimmings Christmas Stockings

Join me in making three Christmas Stockings

I have classes available to come to my small studio and make three stockings.  These stockings are great for gift cards and small presents.

They can be made to hang from your tree or you could make for your Christmas table and use as a table favour, filling with mints or chocolates.

Please get in touch on my blog or facebook page and book a place.  Mornings and afternoons available  during October.

Christmas gift bags

This weekend I have been working on items for a Christmas Craft Fair that I am taking part in in November.  I found some brown bags in my stash, that are now retired.  Although if your interested in making this item Stampin Up sell a Framelit (on page 212 of the Annual Catalogue) that makes up small bags.

I started by stamping reindeer all over the bag, in white ink.  Then I cut out a white stitched circle, which I stamped and embossed in copper embossing powder.  I used a sentiment from the Tags and Trimmings bundle.  The leaves were stamped and die cut using the Oh so eclectic bundle and the star was die cut using a die from Tags and Trimmings in Fresh Fig.  I used Soft sky as a strip for the background, again  using the star to cut from the bottom.  All finished off with a bulldog clip.

Advent Calendar

This week I have been working on an Advent Calendar, I made twenty three 2" boxes which I covered in retired paper Warmth and Cheer paper stack, this is only £3.60 in the clearance rack at the moment.  Then I made one box  using the Window Box Thinlit die which is for the special 24th

They all look great in the black fabric covered box, I shredded some brown paper to nestle them inside
