Is it that time already?

Hi all,

Spring has definitely sprung here in central Queensland - the weather is perfect at the moment, and along with all of my new goodies arriving from the new Idea Book & Catalogue, it is a wonderful yet busy time of the year! I am also heading off to Regional training this weekend, which I'm really looking forward to. I can't wait to show you all the swaps I receive!

It is also the time of year when Christmas cards begin to make a more frequent appearance in blogland and on my desk. Here is a quick and effective card I designed for a Make & Take at a workshop on the weekend:

Some of the ladies changed the position of the central image and it looked great as well. You could easily choose a different ornament image (from Delightful Decorations), and swap a different colour for the Real Red, to have a variety of Christmas cards on hand. I am going to try this with the great little Christmas Greetings set as well.

This card features the new In Colours with Very Vanilla & Sahara Sand, the gorgeous new Just Believe stamp set, new Beautiful Wings embosslit, new Modern Label punch and new pearl jewels:

This one is so cute - I love owls and the new Owl punch is so much fun. I have made a paperclip bookmark, using giant paperclips from Big W. I love that I can match the colours from the awesome new colour collections - this one is Blushing Bride, one of the In Colours:

You can view a tutorial on how to make an owl bookmark paperclip at Chic n' Scratch by Angie Kennedy Juda, here.
I think that Poppy Parade is going to be my new favourite colour! You can see just a smidge on the owl (the heart) and the largest butterfly on the second card.
I am off now to complete my swaps! Have a great week,


  1. I love that Christmas card, stunning!

  2. Ooooh! Have just ordered the Just Believe set ... and am holding my breath waiting for it to arrive! Sweet samples, Genelle! Just wish I had some time to stamp! Hugs xxaxx
