All good things come to an end.

On Tuesday afternoon it will be the last class in my studio. I have started to pack up as we are moving house 250 miles south from West Yorkshire to the Cotswolds. The actual move won't happen until January but the studio will close at the end of this month. I still don't know how or where I am going to have some craft stuff at home as we are living in a tiny rented flat at the moment.

However back to Tuesday afternoon. I have 5 places left. Join me to create this really pretty tin of cards. With the festive season upon us the tins are full of Christmas cards. I have used the limited time offered Snow is Glistening stamp set which I love. I shall be using this for my own cards too.

In making these cards I haven't used the main image of the tree which is very beautiful but the other stams in the set, along with the matching dies. These little mini cards are so useful to pop in with a present.

Here I have decorated the edge of the envelopes. 

A tin full!

And the decorated tin. Love this project. If you fancy joining me for the grand finale message me here

Stamp and hop, blog hop. Casing the annual catalogue

Welcome to the November Stamp'n Hop. This months theme is casing the annual catalogue.
Thanks to Susan for her lovely makes.

I still have a long list of what I want to order from the annual catalogue so joining this hop was brilliant for me. This arrived on my desk a week ago.
 I love a punch that matches a stamp set and I love 3d so I have cased from pg 47.

I had to do a christmas one.

I have kept this one very simple, just christmas green and red. and I have stamped and punched to make them look like mini poinsettia. I have to admit I am not very good at keeping these plants alive long after Christmas!

Now its time to hop over to Mo's page to see what she has made.

'Lovely as a Tree' vintage style.

I wanted to use 'Lovely as a Tree' for one of my Christmas cards. I needed to keep it simple but wanted it to be classy. I have gone for a vintage style in crumb cake, soft suede and early expresso. 

I was happy with this, I love the little bit of glitter on the tree, not too much, just enough but... it needed something else, ribbon but how....
I decided to add a layer of vellum. I added the ribbon and stamped the sentiment with gold ink.

I do think this is a classic card.

This is one of the cards we are making next Tuesday afternoon. Message me if you would like to join us.
