I am lucky enough to be able to have a coffee morning once a week (if we are all free!!) with some friends I have know for about 11 years. We met at playgroup when my son was nearly 2 and have stayed mates through the years. We are all avid crafters - one of them introduced me to cardmaking years ago, which led me to Stampin' Up!
We are meeting for coffee today, which will be our last one before Christmas, so I thought I would make them some Christmas crackers with the new Envelope Punch Board - it took me a while to make them all, but I think they turned out really well!
I even made the box for them, with an acetate lid to keep them in place - I think they are so cute! They only fit one 'favourites' sized chocolate in them, so they are really small, but the template I found online and followed, has three different sized crackers to make, I just liked these little ones!

How cute is this paper? Although I am a non-traditional Christmas colours kind of girl - I really like the Season of Style dsp pack that is offered in the latest Holiday Catalogue from Stampin' Up!
I held a Chicks and Chocolates class with a new friend - (it's amazing how craft brings people together, I wouldn't have half the friends I have now if it wasn't for becoming a part of Stampin' Up! - I am so blessed!!) and this was the collection I organised for us to make - perfect timing for Christmas and she loves traditional colours!
A couple of these I featured on my blog last post that I made with my Stamp Club ladies, but in different colours.
This is a really cute little bag that takes almost no time to score and fold, ready to fill with yummy treats!
A cute little handbag full of yummy crispy m&m's - template from one of my favourite US demos, Becky Roberts at Inking Idaho. Click on the link for the information to make your own!
A cute little box made with the Deco Label Framelits - perfect size for a couple of chockies!
And last but not least, another Envelope Punch Board Christmas Cracker. I really love these!
If you would like any of the products to make these, you can order them in my store, or contact me and I will place it for you. Your order will be shipped straight to you!

I had my last stamp club on Friday night and it was a lovely night!
I spent all week getting the Christmas tree up and the decorations ready - I made my own this year!
I made Festive Flurry Ornaments in Island Indigo, Bermuda Bay and Silver. I embossed the Silver Metallic Ink with clear embossing powder for that raised look. Finished off with some dimensionals, rhinestones and white bakers twine. I made 20 for the tree, but will probably make a few more to fill in the gaps.
I also made some with the new single stamps. I used the Christmas Star, stamped in Bermuda Bay then rock and rolled into Island Indigo ink, then scored to make it 3D. I then attached two together with stacked dimensionals to make a 3D ornament.
I also made my own wreath again this year. I couldn't stop using the Winter Frost DSP - the colours are so my taste, I found lots of uses for it! I got a foam wreath from Spotlight, cut it in half to make two wreaths, then covered it in strips of the Winter Frost DSP. I found on online that I liked and cased it. I then stamped and cut out some of the Festive Flurry and made them into an ornament and attached it to the wreath. I used the Expressions thinlit die to cut out the Merry and finished it off with one of those gorgeous Frosted Finishes Embellishments. I love it!
I thought it might be nice to have a themed night for Stamp Club, so all of our projects were in the same colours - Island Indigo, Bermuda Bay and Silver - and all used the same dsp - the silvery striped one from the Winter Frost dsp collection.
We made a Christmas cracker with the Envelope Punch Board:
The picture really doesn't do it justice - it is gorgeous and sparkly in real life!
Next we made a cute little box with the deco label framelits:
Next we made an extended Circle Thinlits Card:
Excuse the lighting - still waiting on a light box - hint hint family!!
Here it is with the extended bit - good place to write your greeting!
And last but not least, the candle we decorated with the Festive Flurry stamps and matching framelits:
And here is the group shot:
I just love these colours together, and I have always been an alternative-colour Christmas girl, so it was just perfect for me!
How are you going with your Christmas crafting? Not long until the big day!!
If you like any of the products I have used, you can get them in my store - it's really quick and easy to place an order and you can have it shipped directly to you! If you prefer that I place your order myself, contact me and I would be happy to do that!
