Preparing for Christmas - Santa Please Call Here



Christmas is around the corner and the Children are getting excited, now is the time to make the countdown calendars and door hangers, just so Santa doesn't forget to call!

each year I make a calender, Advent or Count Down, for the Grandchildren and also a door hanger for their bedroom doors, just so Santa knows where they are.


The door hanger was cut from pale blue card from Papermill Direct using a template from Serif Craft Artist, I added a digital backing paper from Pink Petticoat to the hanger before printing it out.  Once cut out the edges were coloured with a little distress ink then the embellishments were added.  The stamps used were from last years Molly Bloom Christmas Magazine, they were stamped, coloured with Promarkers, fussy cut and some glossy accents added to the sweets.  Snowflakes were cut using a Sizzix die and the printed name and words were cut out with Spellbinders dies and the edges coloured with distress ink.  A bow was made with gingham ribbon, some hessian string and a button, two sleigh bells were attached to the button.  A few sequins were added for a little bit of sparkle.

I have also made a start on my Christmas cards, I managed to purchase this bauble Memory Box die for half price so had to use it in my cards, here is what I made.


Cream hammer cardstock and kraft cardstock from The Papermill Direct were used, the embossing was done with a free folder from a magazine and the baubles were finished with some red ribbon from my ribbon box.

Lots more Christmas cards on the drawing board, I will be posting more shortly.

Thank you all for your great comments on my posts, I have been very busy lately with family visiting, so will try and catch up with my commenting on your lovely blogs over the weekend and next week xx
