Today was the last class for the year for my Scrapbooking group . I am loving using the various dies from the Holiday catalogue for my pages . Can you spot the brand new product I've used  ? I love how these pages came together .


I was more than a little sad to be hosting the last of these classes for this year but am looking forward to a break in December to refresh and plan next year's classes.
My ladies were excited to receive their special little gifts - personalised bone folders with their names engraved ! This time I went for blue tones , it's a great opportunity to use up those little DSP scraps ! I totally forgot to take a photo before class so these are for the absent ladies , I hope they are able to make it for classes next year .

Once again I have only used stamps , ink and paper and showcased Lovely As A Tree and Better Together stamp sets . I also used Greetings From Santa which is presently on sale .

The ink was brayered on and the trees simply  stamped , glitter added with the paint brush spatter technique and some silver ribbon finished it off nicely
 Cased from Pinterest and it was created by Paula Dobson , thank you Paula , I love this card .
It uses the Northern Lights technique and while a little unsure about it everyone's card was unique. 

Cased from the very talented Julie Gearinger . This is one of my favourites !


Last weekend I held my last two Christmas classes . Saturday was my advanced stampers class . I was able to order engraved bone folders for all of my class ladies from Tamra Davies Etsy store without the excessive postage costs because Tamra joined us at On Stage and also took part in our Vintage Swap . I loved her card so much I came home and created one of my own and my class ladies also created it . The music stand is cleverly created using the Decorative Label punch . Pretty darn cool huh !


 This next card I cased from page 27 of the Holiday Catalogue . I love this card . It uses the Holly Berry Builder punch and stamp set and the Pretty Pines Bundle - so versatile , not just for  Christmas !

The next card for this group of lovelies was the one created with the Christmas Magic set that the previous group also created .


Sunday's class also created Tamra's card as well as  two more cards . I wanted the ladies to try out the new Stitched Shapes framelits because S.U have made them available to us for the month of November  . However , due to their popularity , they have sold out and you must oder them before Monday if you wish to have them as soon as they are back in stock . Otherwise , they are not going to be available until the next annual catalogue  begins . Here is the card I created using them .

Here is the next card . I adore that little angel ! Isn't she the sweetest ?

I had made some lovely gifts to show my appreciation for the support my ladies give me  and also a Christmas card which I had cased from my vintage swap card I created !

Ferrero Roche in tiny tea cups !

Christmas cards and decorated bone folder holders for the engraved bone folders . 

Finally both groups created this gorgeous Merry Mice card which I cased from Patti McDermott on Pinterest .


Home from On Stage in Brisbane and straight back into card classes for me ! What an inspirational few days we had . The best part of attending OnStage is catching up with all of the lovely demonstrators from all over the world . I met so many great ladies and had the chance to connect with others I had previously met . I am ready to head of to my first product playground . This is where we get to do some make n takes using new product . I was in he same group as the lovely Melanie from Mt Isa and the oh so funny Pam from Horsham . We had so much fun .

The new Occasions Catalogue begins on 4 th January but I was lucky enough to be able to put in a pre order and so I already have some lovely new product to play with as soon as I have my Christmas crafting sorted !
I took part in a vintage  swap organised by Cheryl O'Bree . This is the card I created using Seasonal Bells to make a wedding card.
