Holidays are coming.... Holidays are coming....

Don't you just love that Coca Cola advert with the Santa on the big truck!! I always know Christmas is getting closer when you start seeing it on TV. Havent seen it yet but I am sure its only a matter of time!!!

On Friday I went to my lovely friend Anna's house to do a spot of Christmas crafting, Stampin' Up! style!!

When we arrived they was a smell of homemade muffins in the air!! Yummy!!! I had to partake in 1 or 2 just to be polite!!!
Here is the selection of projects we made. Some people did all of them, some just did 2 or 3. But we all had fun and got into the Christmas mood!!!

Here is a close up of the Santa card. I found this on Splitcoast Stampers and decided to have a go. It makes a nice change from stamping! I think I will make some of these with my boys!

Next is a close of of a gift bag. I got the instructions for this from Monica on In Love With Stamping and I have made quite a few now. Its very easy once you know how!! I will be making these as teacher gifts this Christmas I think!!! Maybe filled with some choccies!! Papers used are from the retired set Dashing, still available while stocks last.

Finally a close up of my brand new set, Tags for All. I treat myself when I found out I had got my promotion. It is fantastic to make really quick and easy tags. I made these in about 15 minutes. The elastic cord is fab, you get loads on a reel and its perfect for tags and decorations!

Colours used for the tags are Chocolate Chip, Old Olive and Ruby Red!
Bye for now!
