12 Days of Christmas – Day 12

Today is the last day of sharing with you my 12 Days of Christmas.  I do hope you have enjoyed them.

In saying that, be sure to pop back as I haven’t finished sharing all my Christmas projects with you.

Once again I am sharing a card we did in one of our Friday Classes & yes once again, it has been created using the Santa’s Workshop Suite from the 2018 Holiday Catalogue.  It consists of the Signs of Santa Stamp Set, Santa’s Signpost Framelits & Santa’s Workshop Specialty DSP.  This DSP has been hand-drawn with white flocking on one side.  You can also purchase the Stamp Set & Framelits as a Bundle.  Can you tell it is one of my favourites.

Day 12 of the Aussie version of the “12 Days of Christmas”.

On the eleventh day of Christmas, my true love gave to me –

My card today is yet another created in one of our classes a few weeks ago.  I actually Dashing-Deer-2---Insidecreated this card from a sketch I had saved some time ago & then when I went looking for something on Pinterest, can you believe it, up popped my card.  I thought I was seeing things until I recognized a few things were a little different.  Has that happened to you?  I will be honest & say it has a couple of times to me.  Scary!

The card was actually created when the Dashing Along DSP first come out for the limited promotion BUT you will be happy to know that it has been made available to everyone in Aus & NZ as some of the sales of certain products have exceeded the forecast.  You can now order from by clicking on the link above or below.

Just on a note about the sales of the 2018 Holiday Catalogue – here in the South Pacific, some of the products may not be available for the entire Catalogue period.  They are –

Today is Day 5 of the 12 Days of Christmas.

Now for Day 5 of the Australian version of the 12 Days of Christmas.

In Australia, Christmas & Summer is very much all about the game of cricket.  We play it on the beach, in back yards, front yards, in the bush, in the streets.  Big kids, little kids, kids at heart all play.  We use anything we can get our hands on for a bat, wicket & ball.  Mind you, I have played where sometimes everyone thinks they are playing for “sheep stations” as it is so serious & completive, but mostly it is all about the fun!

Boxing Day is all about the 1 day match in Melbourne when we are glued to our TV’s for the day!

My card today is using the Frosted Floral Suite which includes the First Frost Stamp Set, Frosted Bouquet Framelits & the Frosted Floral Specialty DSP which are all from the 2018 Holiday Catalogue.  The Stamp Set & Framelits are also available as a Bundle.

My card today is one we created a few weeks ago in our Friday classes.  We all love the Dashing-Deer---InsideWoodland Embossing Folder Technique, so after seeing  something similar on Pinterest, which grabbed my attention, we set out to create the card.  Thank you so much for your inspiration.

Along with the Embossing Folder, we used the Dashing Deer Bundle from the 2018 Holiday Catalogue.  This bundle includes the Dashing Deer Stamp Set & the Detailed Deer Thinlits.  Perfect for Christmas!

12 Days of Christmas – Day 3

12-Days-of-ChristmasG’Day Stampers,

Today is Day 3 of the 12 Days of Christmas.

As I grew up in a small country town way out west, this little song has always stuck in my head.  We use to sing it all the time.  To this day whenever I see a roo, especially around this time of the year, this song pops into my head.

Now for Day 3 of the Australian version of the 12 Days of Christmas.6-White-Boomers

“On the third day of Christmas, my true love gave to me –

Today it is all about the 2018 Holiday Catalogue as I’ve used the Great Joy Stamp Set which is fantastic for colouring.  The stocking has actually been coloured with the Watercolour Pencils, no Blender Pen, no Aqua Painter but with lots of shading with the pencils.

I’ve used the Embossing Paste with a small amount of Crumb Cake Ink Re-Fill to create my background.

First Frost #2

First-Frost-1---Close-Up

G’Day Stampers,

I’m sharing with you the 2nd card created using the Frosted Floral Suite.

In fact I started to case (copy & share everything) from the 2018 Holiday Catalogue but as usual it sort of went of on it’s own.  Looks nothing like the one in the Catalogue except for maybe the sentiment part of the card, but that First-Frost-1---Insideis ok with me.

I decided to create a bit of a different fold which the class loved doing.  It is always good to get out of your comfort zone especially with folds & colours.

G’Day Stampers,

Today I am sharing with you one of the cards created in a class when the 2018 Holiday Catalogue first come out.  We played with the First Frost Bundle including the Frosted Floral DSP.  In fact this was the very first Suite I purchased in my pre-order.  It is absolutely gorgeous!First-Frost---Inside

I love to randomly cut my DSP into pieces & then adhere it back onto a contrasting colour Cardstock, in this case Whisper White.  It adds a little more interest while at the same time showcasing this gorgeous DSP.  I carried the same through to the inside of the card.

DSP 2018 Holiday Share – Round 2

G’Day Stampers,

It’s been sometime since I’ve shared with you but I felt I needed a break from all social media including blogging. 2018-Holiday-DSP-Share Sometimes you just have to go with what your body tells you.  I thought that having 1 month off would be great & it was.  So nearly 3 months later here I am.
