Clean & Simple… Merry & Bright

Hi everyone,

Happy Sunday to you all!

The weather here today is absolutely miserable, it is a right old Winnie the Pooh day… blustery & wet

I have another Christmas card to share today, it is clean and simple and easy to mass produce, it’s mainly die cutting and assembling.

merry & bright

I used the following materials and tools to complete this card :-

  • Thick White cardstock card size is 5″x 5″
  • cuttlebug
  • Dienamics Star Stax Dies
  • Lil inker Designs Stitched Square Frames Die Set
  • Glitter Cardstock
  • and the Merry & Bright sentiment stamp from the Clearly Besotted Set the Scene stamp set
  • Versafine Onyx Black Ink
  • Double sided Dimensional adhesive tape plus a little bit of matte medium to help the tape stick to the glittered cardstock.

Worlds Biggest Coffee Morning

Hi everyone!

It has been another busy old week and I still have a few bits n bobs to finish off, hopefully this week…

  • I need to make the envelopes for the 4 seasons cards I made last week
  • I need to record the above for a You
  • tube video
  • I scored big time last week at TK Maxx Tim Holtz Stamp Sets for £7.99 each!! blog post to do for this!


What have I been up to last week …. I made these Christmas card box sets for the World’s Biggest Coffee Morning that is being held this coming week 27th September 2013 for MacMillan Cancer Research…

Each handmade box contains 4 handmade cards and 4 handmade envelopes, the fronts of the boxes are decorated to show what the cards are like inside, and the back of the box is stamped with the “inside” sentiment…they’re cute and I do hope they sell well with all proceeds going to this worthy charity
