So much to share...

but so little time to write my blog, or so it seems at the moment.

Yesterday I met a really lovely group of ladies when they came to the house to make some cards in my craft room. They wanted to make Christmas cards, and each of them made four cards together with a little gift tag/bag.

I'm not going to share all four cards with you but here's one of them and the tag/bag too.

Although we added Dazzling Diamonds to the trees (you can just about make it out in this photo) to make it more of a Christmas card you could use it for other occasions if you didn't use the glitter.

The little gift tag/bag contains a chocolate, but anything small and flat would fit as you can see from the next photo. Mind you, I have learnt that Nancy has already eaten her chocolate - she was threatening to do so in the class!

The little gift tag/bag could also be used for other occasions by simply changing the Designer Series Paper and the colour combination. Old Olive and Cherry Cobbler do I think make a great colour combination for Christmas, but it by changing the colours it would also make a great wedding favour or birthday party treat.

Stampin' Up! supplies used:

Stamp sets : Lovely as a Tree (card), Itty Bitty Banners and Very Merry Tags (tag/bag)
Ink : Soft Suede and Early Espresso (card), Old Olive and Cherry Cobbler (Tag/bag)
Card Stock: Old Olive, Chocolate Chip and Whisper White (card) and Old Olive and Whisper White (tag)
Designer Series Paper : Season of Style Designer Series Paper Stack (both - Retired) 
Accessories : Dazzling Diamonds (card), Old Olive 1/8" Taffeta Ribbon, Mosaic Punch and Scallop Tag Topper Punch (tag/bag)

As well as doing all the preparation for yesterday's class I've also been busy preparing for today's (and tomorrow's) class and I'll be sharing some of those projects with you on Sunday.

Tomorrow I be sharing details of my ALL DAY CRAFT EVENT to be held on 22 March, here at my house, so please check back to see what's in-store and hopefully I can tempt you to book a place.
