More Christmas Treat Bags

As promised, I'm bag with the little cellophane bags I made for Demi's preschool friends...

These contain Demi's favourite lollies, Strawberry Clouds.

Thanks for stopping by!

Christmas Treat Bags

Well, it's good to be back. Where have I been? Nowhere, really. Just busy, busy, busy.
Today I have the little Christmas treat bags I have made for Mia's year one classmates, which also doubled as my swaps for the SU! seminar this past weekend...

As this was my first convention I was a little intimated about making swaps, & to be honest, I only got the courage to make something the day before the seminar! I made thirty of these little babies for convention & another thirty for Mia's class. That's a lot of traingle boxes, but I'm pretty pleased with them & I'm sure the kids will love them, especially the little Candbury Santas that are inside.
Stay tuned for the little bags I made for Demi's preschool friends!

Breaking in my Circle Scissors Plus.

Hello everyone.

I'm so glad to be back after a little Blogging holiday. Ok, so it wasn't really a holiday but a couple of very busy weeks worrying & running to & from hospital to see my dad in between all the evreyday running around. I'm glad to report that as of today he is home to recuperate from an operation to remove numerous aneurysms. He had a scar from his groin to his ankle held together with 101 staples!

My Blogging comeback comes because of a need to create a card for my husband's godson and because I just couldn't hold off using my Circle Scissor Plus circle cutting system.

This is the card I came up with...

In the second photograph you can just catch a glimpse of how I've decorated the inside of the card.
To make this card I dug out some retired paper & used it for the colour inspiration of Chocolate Chip &Soft Sky (retired). The little guy is from the cute All in the Family stamp set. He has been stamped on a watercolour paper circle cut using the Circle Scissors Plus & matted on larger cardstock circles cut that were cut in the same way. The smaller circles were all created with different size punches. The sentiment is from the Hostess Level 1 set, Best Yet.
I hope you like it & I hope you have a great weekend. Hope to see you again early in the week.
