I hope you all had a nice Christmas and looking froward to a New Year now. I would like to share with you my last Christmas cards I did and few Christmas gifts I made:
In these cards like in all others I did this year I am using my Hero Arts musical background stamp, new Tim Holtz seasonal distress inks, Tim Holtz dies and I used Spellbinders label die with matching stamp by Waltzing Mouse Stamps. The flowers are some very old I had in my stash and holly leaves are cut by hand.
Everybody was getting some big gifts for teachers or some people were even collecting money to buy a gift or something and a card from the class, since my kids used to go to a private school this custody was a bit strange to me but I decided I would just go for something hand made instead of material gifts. So my daughter did a cards (pity I did not take a photos of them) and I made a few Christmas themed minibooks. I hope they liked them, please forgive me bad photos as I finished them at 3 a.m. and only took some snaps with my iPhone.
And some photos of inside of the books:
In these I used Stack the Deck Binding technique presented by Laura from The Paper Trail . It is very easy binding to do and very professionally looking.
Items used here are:
- K & Co papers
- Tim Holtz dies and distress inks
- Martha Stuart and Fiskars Punches
- Hero Arts Stamps
- Spellbinders dies
- Waltzingmouse Stams
And one more very simple book again done in a last minute for my lovely childminder:
For this book I used same K & Co. papers, A6 envelopes for pages, just covered them with papers and made tags. She is very creative herself I am sure she will have no problems in finishing this book up.
That would be all for now, hope you liked my projects.
