The Bird, The Box and The Bauble.

Hi Everyone!

Hope you are all well .. can you believe December is here already!

I have a few Christmas sparkles to share with you today, and to say that I won’t be around on my blog much between now and the new year, I have a lot of stuff happening.

My husband broke his leg in two places the other week, and will be off his work for the next 6 weeks, which means, my workload has increased… Hospital appointment with the consultant to see if they are going to operate/pin/plate the bones to stabilize tomorrow.

I was at the dentist on Monday… I’m on antibiotics for a week as I have an infection in my jaw from a broken crown (just my luck!) and I go to the dentist on Monday to have the root removed (not looking forward to it one bit!)

I will be busy between now and the end of December preparing samples for Indigoblu for their CHA releases, which unfortunately I can’t share.    However there will be a blog post from me every Tuesday over on the Indigoblu Blog and another card share on the challenge blog around the 19th December.

My Indigoblu Demonstrations have now finished for the year and I have one final workshop to do this Saturday over in Edinburgh for Stampers Grove,  there are still a few spaces left if you fancy joining me making Christmas shaker cards, money wallets, gift card holders and Christmas tags!

Phew!.. and did I mention in amongst all the December mayhem, I still have to make my own  Christmas cards for friends and family and do all of my Christmas gift shopping  eek!

Now onto my sparklies…

Hello….

Hello….

It’s the first day of my holidays today … a whole week off work 🙂

That means a whole week of crafting and I am really looking forward to it! I had thought about having a sort out in my shed, and de-stashing stuff I will no longer use, but I’ll see how things go and if it happens I will be sure to show a before and after 😉

This morning I was reading through a card making magazine that my hubby bought me on my birthday last month and there was a cute little gift box template in there, so I decided to give it a go..

hello box  1

Supplies used:-

  • Heavyweight Cardstock (bought it at the Ross Papercraft show last year)
  • Stampin Up Patterned Paper
  • Bazzill Pink Textured Cardstock
  • Hello die from Clearly Besotted Stamps
  • Stampin Up Circle Punch
  • Stampin Up Flower Punch
  • Woodware Circle Punch

Quick and easy to make, and it would also be great to fill with easter goodies too… might have another go later on 😉

As always, thank you for popping round, and see you soon, lots of crafting and blogging to be done this week!

Sarah 🙂
