Christmas roundup...and Goodbye 2010!

We're back after a great trip away to spend Christmas with Paul's family in Victoria. It was the first time in YEARS that the whole family has spent Christmas together! It really was worth the long drive there and back. We all had such a lovely time...and Santa even came to visit us on Christmas morning before he headed back to the North Pole! Very special! :) I've been really slack and haven't download any of our photos yet off the camera so none to share at the moment...sorry. :)

Anyway...before the year closes I thought I'd do a quick share of a couple of my Christmas projects (since everyone should've received theirs now...I hope!).

First up...these were the cards I made for scrapping friends this year.

I used some new Papertrey stamps and dies for these. I went with the kraft/red/white colour combo...a fave of mine. :) (Sorry the colours are a bit off in these pics...hmmmm...)

The kids and I had a lot of fun making paper snowflakes this year too.

I decided to use them for some of my gift wrapping for teachers and scrapping friends. :)

I love how they turned out!

I also sewed some little gifts for the @Home ST girls. It's been so much fun working with Kim and the girls this year! These are little mini notebook covers...handy to pop in your handbag I thought. :)

I ended up making myself one at the same time...and an extra. ;)

So that's about it. I wanted to get so much more done much just ran out of time with us going away and all the other Christmassy things going on. I'm determined to be much more organised next year.

Hope you have a fantastic New Year's Eve planned! I've got Mum and Dad here for the night to celebrate (Paul's working nightshift). We're just having a quiet night at home...probably watching the fireworks on tv to see in the new year. :)

Before I go I just wanted to thank all of you who've taken the time to visit my blog and leave me such lovely comments this year. I really do appreciate each and every one of you! I really do love hearing from you! Happy New Year and I hope 2011 is a wonderful one for you and your families!

I'm still here!

Whoops! I had no idea it'd been this long between posts! It's been busy, busy, busy here for the last few weeks with end of school events and loads of Christmas preparations. I'm sure you're finding it just as hectic as I am right now. :)
Anyway, I thought I'd better do a quick update and share my last couple of Scrapz Christmas projects for the year. Better late than never right?

First up here's a layout of my 3 using some Echo Park goodies and my new fave Martha edge punch...

I love this pic of the kids in their Santa hats! A couple of closeups...

My last Scrapz project for the year were these super easy hanging gift card holders. (I've done a little tutorial on these which you can find HERE. I think you'll need to be logged in the see the images.)

These are so quick to whip up for those last minute gift cards. :)

Are you doing a December Daily album this year? I made my first one last year and loved it so I'll be putting another one together this year...but I think I'll be scrapping it after Christmas with everything going on. I'm still taking photos and making notes each day though.

So that's about it for now! I hope you're feeling organised in the lead up to Christmas Day...only 8 sleeps to go!!

See you again soon!

Twelve Days of Christmas

It's that time of year again...for the Twelve Days of Christmas comp over at Scrapz. :) (Go HERE to read all about it and to see the very generous prizes that Heike has on offer!)

I've set the first create some gift tags! Here are my samples using some Crate Paper 'Snow Day'...
I know we don't get snow at Christmas here in Australia...but I just love these cute snowmen!

You'll find all the details of the challenge and how to enter HERE.
We've also had two super talented ladies recently join our Design Team...Belinda Venables and Georgia Keays! I just love both of these beautiful girls...and their gorgeous work! (So happy to have you both on board!) :)
