A Christmas Surprise Gift



I made this for my husband's christmas gift.  I was giving him some vouchers for his favourite shop and didn't want to just hand over an envelope.  I'd also bought a few little knick knacks to go with it.  So here is what I came up with.  It sort of evolved into a book idea with ribbon tied at the side to keep it closed.





Inside I made a pocket to hold his vouchers and on the opposite side an open window box to hold some handy accessories.  The card stock, patterned papers and die cut stickers were all from the Christmas Jingle Simply Scrappin' set.  Not just for scrapbooking your christmas photos!

Trio of Treats

The following are winter survival treat boxes that I made up for some friends.  Now that Christmas is past, I can tell you what was inside.  They contained hand cream in the bottom, lip balm in the middle and little chocolates in the top.  


I stamped the boxes and labels with Serene Snowflakes.  The first set I made are the trio in whisper white.  These had a separate lid and bottom.  I decided to play around to see if I could make a set that didn't use so much card stock.  The result was the bashful blue set.  The boxes are made pizza style.  Although this saved cardstock and time, the white boxes do look neater.

Christmas table treat boxes


Here are some treat boxes that I made a few months ago for a craft fair.  I decided to go with the snowflake design for our table on christmas day.   It's the first time we have had something like this on the table and proved to be a bit of a distraction as everyone tried to guess what was in them!  Only chocolates I'm afraid but it did make me think about the possibilities - something specific to each family member, a lottery ticket.  Or After Eights as I did the second time we used them.  I've gathered them up again for New Years Day but what to put it in this time?!!

Merry Christmas!

Merry Christmas everyone!  I hope you had a lovely day.  

I thought I would show you a few items I made for christmas over the next few days.  This is a santa money wallet which I made on Christmas Eve.   Granny wanted to finish off Ross' gift with some money.  Last minute or what!!  Thankfully I'd seen something similar on the net which gave me the basic idea and I took it from there using various stampin up punches.   The money (or a gift card/voucher) is tucked into a pocket at the back.
I think it also makes a nice tree ornament!

O Christmas Tree!


I wanted to share my scrapbook page of our Christmas tree.  Each year I take some photos of our decorated tree but this year was extra special because this is the first time we have had a brand new tree!  As soon as we got it home we had to put it up and everyone helped decorate it.  I don't think my photos do it justice.


I used the Christmas Jingle Simply Scrappin' kit.  There are loads of elements in the set to make several christmas pages, album or sets of cards.


The set is £17.75 and includes double sided patterned paper, card stock and self adhesive die cuts.

You can order this set or any other items from the catalogue by e mailing me on ails300@btinternet.com.  Any orders required for christmas should be placed before 14th December to allow for delivery.

Thanks for looking.
