About Me

Hi, Welcome to my Blog. I'm a lapsed crafter of late but still managing my diary Scrapbooking, plus cards as required. Previously I've also dabbled in ATCs, Tags, Altered Books, Art Journaling, Décopatch, Knitting, Crochet, and Embroidery amongst other things. I live in Surrey, UK with my husband and son. For exercise I usually play Badminton and go Ballroom and Latin Dancing, not really got back to the latter since the pandemic. I like walking which I couple with Geocaching and sometimes Bouncing on my Rebounder (mini trampoline). I am a Christian.

Dozen Christmas Cards

Thought I better make some Christmas cards!

I started with the design I made for craft class last week, I also pondered the cards the ladies had made with the same pieces but all different.

I came up with a slightly different design which was easily reproducible and not too bulky.



I used some old Christmas Cracker tubes for the baubles. Always a considered buy as I look to see if I'll be able to use them after the day.

I went with peel-offs instead of die cut words, as I seem to have quite a few left and it is much quicker.











Also sticky backed holographic ribbon as a border and the tops of the baubles. I didn't really wish to make 24 bows and they are often too bulky for standard postage here in the UK.

Still it took quite some time to make all 12.

I also made a page for my DLP too. Think I need a lie down!

Nice cards.

We have one on our mantle piece. We thought it was an expensive fancy M&S card.

Nice to know it was home made.

Happy new year - Simon & Mandy
