Memory Box Grand Stick Frame

I bought this gorgeous Memory Box Grand Stick Frame recently and seeing this weeks Less Is More 'Acetate/Vellum Challenge spurred me on to open up the packaging and make a shaker!

I used a Garden Floral Stencil and Teeny Bikini ink to create the background, I think this stencil also works for snowflakes ;-)

Simon Says Stamp 'Snowglobe'

Did you know that there are only 65 days left to Christmas!! Take 20 of those off for mailing and that only leaves just over a month to get your cards made and in the postbox!

Simon Says Stamp have just released a fantastic lot of Christmas/Winter goodness called 'Believe In The Season'. I believe! Do YOU? ;-)

I love this time of year, it's when family and friends get together and catch up with all of the gossip of the previous 12 months, play games, eat drink and generally be merry!
 I also love to send special handmade cards, I really don't like to send store bought cards to anyone and I like to think that the recipients do appreciate the thought  of receiving something especially made for them ;-)

The lovely Heidi and Simon team sent me a few samples of the new release ( and I will be buying more just as soon as I finish writing this post! ;-))

I made this using a fabulous Snowglobe Landscape Die, a Holiday Messages Strips Stamp Set and a yummy Barely Blue Ink Pad, I love this icy smoky blue, gorgeous ;-)

I kept the whole design fairly CAS, I wanted the globe and the simple stamping to be the focus, I also like to make sure that any Christmas cards I make fit into a standard envelope. Most of my cards are for international mailing and I do like to keep the costs down ;-)

 One year I spent hours dismantling most of my cards, removing bulky flowers and replacing them with flatter die cuts so I could mail them, lesson learnt ;-)

 I broke my foot on Monday, great start to the week! :-(

To see the whole release please CLICK HERE or on the pic! 

As You Like It  Do You Prefer Old Or New Stash. I love opening up the packaging of a new product and thinking about how I can use it but I also like using my oldies but goodies too. I just love every crafty item I have and don't often part with anything ;-)
C.R.A.F.T   Christmas

Hope you all have a great week :-)

Simon Says: Think Pink!

Hi all and welcome to another week on the Simon Says Stamp Wednesday Challenge

Thank you for joining us for the Totally Resistible Challenge and we hope you will all join us again this week too.

This week the challenge is

Think Pink

As you know October is breast cancer awareness month. Apart from using some pink on our creations we all need to have a good feel of our breasts and if we notice anything unusual then we need to get them checked by a Doctor. If you are due for a Mammogram, make sure to make the appointment!

This week we are showcasing Pink And Main Products, well we just HAD to with a company name like that eh ;-)
  You don't have to use them for the challenge but if you have them we would love to see them used.

Please pop around to see what our lovely GD Danijela, and the DT have made, everyone appreciates comments ;-) 

As always Simon Says Stamp will be giving away $50 voucher to shop at the fabulous Simon Says Stamp Store

I used a  So Cool Clear Stamp Set and a Stitched Rounded Rectangles Die  and made two cards to share ;-)

Isn't this little penguin adorable with his iced lolly! 

I finished the inside too ;-)

I am currently struggling with a broken foot so my hubby had to be the photographer this week, I can't manage to hobble up into the garden, he didn't do a bad job on the whole, what do you recon ;-)

I finished the inside of this 2nd one too but hubby forgot to photograph it ;-)

So now it's time to check your boobs before getting out your pink supplies!

Do you use Instagram ?  If so please add  #ssswchallenge to your challenge entry uploads so we can see them on there too.
