It's fast approaching.....

Christmas that is :-/

I have been scrapping again, using the very christmasy Websters Pages "A botanical christmas" goodies from my DT kit from Handmade by Suzanne....and I think it has finally got me motivated with starting to get organised for christmas!!!  Well...a few things at  I still haven't bought a single gift...but at least I have a few ideas now ...and we have finally figured out the who/what/where for the big day :)

So is what I have been creating

This one is a little different to my normal scrappy style - the darker colours & the busy PP - but I quite like the end result.  Using A Botanical Christmas - "A birds view" & "Oh christmas tree" papers on a dark green Bazzill CS, Some Little Storytellers alpha stickers.....with a flower made using my Sizzix Flower layers #7 die & some handcut stamped leaves that are sitting in a cute little bookpage envelope from Rainbow Splendour...with a heap of machine stitching to create some borders.

Next are a couple of cards that I've made using some leftovers from the kit....

They are both fairly simple....just using strips of PP, Dazzle me gems & fabric strips from the Botanical Christmas range with another flower using a die & a piece of burlap trim tied in a easy :)

Well, that's all for now....but hopefully I'll be back some time soon with some more cards using up the rest of my leftovers.

Thanks for dropping by!  xxx
