Well, I know that for some people it is still too early to be thinking about Christmas, but us crafting folk need a head start if we are going to get everything done in time! This month I have been running a few Stampin' Up! workshops, in which we have made the most beautiful crackers. If you would like a FREE evening in with friends, and the chance to earn FREE product as well then contact me at email@example.com.
The crackers are not too difficult to make, and the base is made from a single sheet of A4 card, then embellished very simply using some stamping, ribbon, some card scraps and a few rhinestone gems:
The colours I have used are very simple: White, Night of Navy and Pool Party, and all supplies used are Stampin' Up! I have had a lot of people ask me how to make their own crackers like these, so I will do a separate post on this later in the week :)
Lastly I apologise for not being particularly active on here for a few weeks, I have had a rather bad bout of flu! I am all better now, thankfully in time for Convention... But I will tell you about that another day :)
