Christmas Crafty Round-Up

I've added a couple of quick cards made with leftovers from the Bubbly Funk November kit to the emag today. It's really been a great kit to work with, the Dream Street Wonderland papers are just fabulous, and all the extra bits and pieces that Caroline adds to the kits work so well together.

I've also made some index cards to go into one of the projects I did for the October kit
I made a book full of pockets ready to fill with whatever lists, menus, reminders etc I'd need in the run up to Christmas. Today I've made some really simple index cards for organising my Gift Shopping.
I've punched a hole in the corner of each card and clipped a book ring to inside of the book wires so that I can use the ring to link together the cards I want to take out shopping with me.
If I actually remember to add all the info it should be a useful resource for the coming years too and stop me buying Rachel a scarf three years running.

I took the photos in the dark, so they are rubbish, sorry.
The book looks like this, and all the info about making it can be found in the archives of the Bubbly Scrumptious emag

Following on from yesterday's DCM White with Pink challenge, I made some more cards with the same theme

The paper on both cards is also from the BF November kit. The trees are Cuttlebug ones cut in felt.
"Winter Wonderland" greeting is from a fabby Cosmo Cricket rub-on set, available from the Bubbly Funk Shop - they are, I think, the best rub-ons I've tried so far.
To be honest, I don't have much luck with rub-ons, it's not for the want of trying either, but these CC ones are gorgeous and work perfectly, they have a beautiful silver finish and look wonderful on the cards.

Right, I suppose I ought to go and do some more work now, but I'm incubating a cold and finding it hard to settle to anything today.

Thanks for looking, please don't leave without saying "hi"!

HI! Thank you for the lovely comments on my blog. I was really excited when I found the "daring" challenge. I have been looking around to find really interesting challenges and I just love it. So much fun. It's freezing here -6 so I'm away to blast the heating and get some crafting a good week. Hugs Eva

Hi Kathy, love the book. I would probably write all my info then forget to take the cards with me! Love that BF kit too - may just pop over there to see if there's any left - fabulous card.

More great Christmas cards (even if they are *whisper* pink - eek!). Love your index cards for your organiser, too. My problem with organisers is that I make them, they look lovely and then I never use them, ha ha!
