Cuttlebug Spot - Santa

Tuesday, 13 December 2011

Christmas is creeping round fast, but thankfully I only have one present left to buy. I'm going to start my wrapping today as all the presents are over my sons bed. Better clear them off, otherwise he'll have nowhere to sleep when he comes home for Christmas.

Our challenge this week over at the Cuttlebug Spot is Santa. I chose this lovely little stamp from Kars. So easy to use, I decided to paper piece him with some scraps from a previous card plus some added glitter. This will be our last challenge for 2011, see you in 2012 for more great challenges and prizes.

Materials used - White square card blank, Red and white cardstock, Paper scraps, Cricut plus Mini Monograms, Cuttlebug plus Polka Dots embossing folder, Kars Santa Claus stamp, Polkadoodles Christmas stamps, White embossing powder, Ribbon and Stickles.

Matthew and Chantelle

Monday, 5 December 2011

What a lovely day. My 2nd cousin Matthew married his beautiful bride on Saturday 3rd December. Chantelle looked stunning and of course the groom looked handsome too. They both wanted a Christmas wedding, so the bridesmaids wore red with white muffs, we sang carols at the service, drank mulled wine and winter Pimms and had a Christmas dinner at the wedding breakfast. Julie, Matthew's mum made a zillion mini Christmas cakes for our favours and the tables were decorated with gold twig trees decorated with baubles. Everyone had worked so hard to create their perfect magical day. The only thing missing was snow :)

Cuttlebug Spot - Scraps

Friday, 2 December 2011

Scraps, scraps, scraps - I'm sure we have loads of them, I know I do. I borrowed Tim Holtz's Tattered Florals die ages ago and cut out loads of flowers and then stuck them in a box and didn't do anything with them. So it was time to make use of them along with some embossed frames that were also in the same box. I attached the layers together with a brad, and screwed the whole thing up to give the flower dimension. Join us at the Cuttlebug Spot and show us what you can do with your scraps.
