The 12 blogs of Christmas!

If you're following the '12 blogs of Christmas', you should have arrived here from Lorraine's blog. Don't forget to visit all the blogs - there will be some great ideas for you to try yourself.

Here is my Christmas project - an organiser for your Christmas shopping trips. I've left the front plain but I think I'll add some of the stamped poinsettias later to make it a bit more colourful.

The notepad is handy for jotting down present ideas, or keeping track of clothes sizes for your nearest and dearest. The file compartment can be used to store all your receipts in one place, just in case Granny decides she would rather have a green hat instead of the blue one you've bought her! If you're inspired to make an organiser of your own, I'd love to see it!

PS Sorry about the terrible photos - will try to get some better ones when the light is better!

Products used (All Stampin' Up! unless otherwise stated):
  • Stamps - Season of Joy
  • Ink - Real Red, Old Olive
  • Cardstock - Real Red, Old Olive, Whisper White
  • Other - Chipboard (non SU), Old Olive designer paper, Old Olive striped grosgrain ribbon, silver elastic cord, notepad(non SU), pen (non SU)
For the next port of call on the '12 blogs of Christmas' blog cruise, please visit Theresa's blog.
Hope you see something to inspire you on the blog cruise!

It's HOW long??!

I can't believe so much time has gone by since I last posted! I must admit that I haven't been too productive lately, but 4 weeks??! I've got nothing to post today, but if you come back tomorrow I'll be taking part in a '12 blogs of Christmas' blog cruise.

There will be 12 blogs showing something with a Christmas theme and a link to the next blog on the cruise. Hopefully you'll find something to inspire you if your mojo has gone walkabouts at the crafter's busiest time of the year.
