1, 2, Tree
At the weekend we got the tree stuff out of the loft. The Guest room is now full of boxes.
The tree is out of it's box and sort of on it's way - it looks like this atm. Poor thing!
Hopefully it will start looking better and more festive as the week goes on. It's about this time when we cross our fingers and toes and hope all the lights will still be working when we get them out of the boxes.
You know how "real" trees drop their needles? Well this artificial one has ideas above it's station - you should see the mess all over the floor.
On to some crafty stuff.
The new set of Templates from Crafty Templates are out this week, along with the option to order up one of Leo's Goodies Kit of papers, card and lots of different embellishments. You can check both templates and goodies out by clicking HERE
It's been good to have a change from Christmas stuff as the templates are a lovely mixture of ideas for all sorts of occasions, there are birds, frames, borders, flowers, hearts and all sorts of other templates this month.
Here are the first two cards I've made using the templates and the blue & chocolate themed goodies kit
I used a scrapling card to make this thank you card. This is the "Huggy Star" template - isn't it cute?
The gorgeous beady embellishment, the sequin trim and the letters were all in the goodies kit along with the various papers I've used
I love this Birdie on a Branch template - and it's so easy to cut out!
I used more of the sequin trim to make the tree trunk and along the branch. The papers and ebellishents are a mix of things from the kit and from my stash.
That's it for today. Someone keeps stealing all my time away - if you happen to know who it is, could you tell them to stop it please?
Have a great day
