Oh my goodness!!!!!!…….I can’t believe I’m starting my Christmas cards in June! It’s normally July that I start getting my cards ready for Christmas, but a good friend asked if we could make some in class and me being me I got stuck in straight away.
This batch of cards were made with retired papers and stamps apart from festival of trees, which has carried over to the new annual catalogue.
I used a sketch for the design of these cards, as I wanted to keep them simple, so when I get my new stock of Christmas goodies I will make another batch of these, so check back soon!

3d projects are my favourite to make, I like getting my teeth into something challenging. Making drawers are so easy to make, you can make big or small, thin or wide, whatever takes your fancy really, you can do 1 high or several high. For this box one level was all that I wantedto use. Having the easel top gives you scope to decorate and embellish as much as you want, this box was for a 70th birthday, so I chose to use flowers and swirls, and not forgetting to add a beautiful buttterfly to give it a finishing touch. dsp used is close to my heart, these colours are soooo beautiful. I also used Stampin up flower punches to make the gorgeous flowers (love making flowers) and not forgetting the Butterfly thinlets die’s, I used a ink nib fo the butterflies body, just adds a finishing touch. To make this box you will need the following: 2 – 6in x 6in card 1 – 6in x 12in card (easel top, score @ 3in & 6in) 4 – 3 1/2in x 8in (sleeves, score @ 1in, 3 1/2in, 4 1/2in & 7in. glue ends together to form a sleeve) 4 – 4 3/8in x 5 3/8in (drawers, score @ 1in on all sides once you have made your drawers and sleeves (add brad to drawer before making up) glue one sleeve to each side of the 6in x 6in card (look at main picture), then you will need to glue the other 6in x 6in piece and stick to the top of the sleeves, you will now have a stable base to adhere your easel top to. Decorate to your liking.

What makes a good gift?…….Every now and then I just like to sit down and make gifts, it doesn’t have to be a birthday or special occasion, just a little something to say hi or thinking of you.
This little mini album is soooo cute and it’s made with 1 sheet of 12 x 12in cardstock. I have made quite a few of these over the past 10 or so years, with different looks, just a little tweak here and there to make each one of them unique.
Today’s album is made with retired papers, “sweet sorbet” , I have been working my way through my paper stash to use it all up and it doesn’t matter how much I use it just never ends……its magic….. you know the kind 😉 it’s the don’t tell the hubby how much you buy:)
If you would like the instructions on how to make this cute album, drop me a line with your email address and I will send it off to you.

How cute is this!!!!!! This paper stack is fantastic, colouful and
6 x 6in, can’t get better than that
I think these doughnuts look great and they are so simple to make!
take a 1in circle punch and punch out a circle as far into the card as you can then take a 2in circle punch and centre it over the 1in circle cut out and punch, to get the icing section I just swapped the 2in punch for a 1 3/4in punch. Use a scalloped circl punch to cut a bite out of it. Have a play with all your circle punches or dies and see how many different sized doughnuts you can make
For the card base I decided to use a stepper cards, you can keep it simple or dress it up it’s up to you.
1- 7 x 10in card
with the 7in side at the top mark in from the side
@ 2 1/4in & 4 3/4in, cut length ways between 1in & 7 1/2in.
score on the inside @ 1in, 2in, 3 1/2in & 7 1/2in
score through the card @ 5in
Hey presto!!! you have a stepper card
Thanks for stopping by today, Tracy
An easy card for today’s post. I think stepper cards look very stunning, whether it is a side step, or a center step. For this card I wanted a center step but, with a triple step in the center. I added two strips of card to the steps to give it added height.
I’m loving the tip top taupe! And these papers are gorgeous, they are from the go wild dsp stack….did you know stamping up now do 6 x 6in stacks?….and you can also buy the card pack that goes with the papers?…how brilliant is that!!!
The stamp set I used was Floral wings! This set is a hostess set isn’t it wonderful? and it’s photopolymer…..even better!
