Christmas is coming!

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

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 :)
