November SoM is so versatile

I just love the November Stamp of the Month! It is very versatile!I have used it for pages and cards - including a Christmas card! 
For this page, i used Glacier & Pixie inks to background stamp a sheet of white cardstock, then cut the cardstock to size. So easy!



This page was inspired by my friend Jacquie - who showed us how to make this one at a recent meeting! I love the colours! I stamped the flowers and cut them out and added 3D foam tape to some. 

For this card, I used one of the leaf stamps and the "dots" to create my wreath.

And here is a sneak peak of the December Stamp of the Month - Cutie Pie. You can get this fabulous stamp set during December for just $5.00 when you spend $75.00 or you can purchase it only during December for $27.00.

 Alison loves to celebrate the pets birthdays each year, and Polly loves cake! So this is a perfect stamp set to use to embellish this page featuring Ali & Polly. 


Ali's teacher is a cupcake fan, so I have made a set of cards for her using the December  SoM. 

Stay tuned for some more ideas using the November and December Stamps of the Month along with some projects using the NEW product - available from 1st December.

I look forward to catching up with you soon.

Christmas is coming.....

Well, the Adelaide Christmas Pageant was held yesterday (8th November) so now all the shopping centres are getting ready for Christmas! and so am I.

I have been making some Christmas cards and gift tags and bags for a little while now, but have stepped it up this weekend. Come along to one of my workshops or book your own event and you could make your own!

Today I made some really simple Christmas cards (inspired by Debbie Hughes).

I have also made some Santa gift boxes. These were cut from the Artiste Cricut Cartridge - they are so easy to make.

We always need gift tags at Christmas time, so I had fun making these little tags too! They are cut from the Artiste Cricut Cartridge, with a little bit of shimmer trim or washi tape added.

And we also need other tags throughout the year, so I am in the process of making some tags using the November SoM - It's the Little Things. It is such a versatile stamp set, so don't miss out on getting yours.

  • If luck doesn’t smile on you in that way, you might stumble upon it by finding a little extra something in your Studio J box. Five “golden tickets” will be sent out during the month of November with randomly selected Studio J print orders! This “golden ticket” is redeemable for one of Close To My Heart’s new D-ring albums* loaded with 10 Top Load Memory Protectors™.
