Day 2 of '5 Days in December'

Written by Kristy on . Posted in Christmas/Seasonal

Hi everyone,

Today's idea is a Book Advent.  The basic idea is to wrap up Christmas books for each day in December leading up to Christmas.  Now don't think you have to have 24 Christmas books of your own!  You can go to the library and see what you can borrow and then you just take them back when they are due.  I sometimes buy a couple of cheap activity books and wrap them up as part of my book advent too.  You could also mix up Christmas themed books with regular books if you want to.

5 Days in December - Day 5

Written by Stef on . Posted in Christmas/Seasonal

Hi everyone,

Today is the last of our "5 Days in December".  We have got some handmade Christmas Crackers to show you today.  These were created using a handmade template and some gorgeous Christmas papers.  We hope that you have enjoyed the week and maybe got some ideas for some Christmas projects of your own.

Don't forget if you are stuck for a present idea, that we have gift vouchers in store to make your Christmas shopping easier and if you want to come in and learn how to make the crackers we are having a class tommorrow morning.  If you are interested but are not able to make it contact Stef at Southern Stationery via email or phone.

Kristy will be back next week with a scrapbook layout using some beautiful My Minds Eye Papers.

Thanks for stopping by,

Stef

5 Days in December - Day 4

Written by Stef on . Posted in Christmas/Seasonal

Hello Everyone,

Today we are showing you some handmade Christmas Ornaments using Kaisercraft Wooden Shapes and also Dusty Attic Chipboard.  The ornaments were made in different ways, by using the Emboss It Dabber and then using assorted embossing powders and then heating it, and also by painting with glimmer glam.  Embossing powders are really starting to regain popularity.  You could easily spray these with different mists or spray inks as well or just apply ink directly from your ink pads to the ornaments without doing any embossing.

We haven't done this with these ornaments but you could easily put some patterned paper on the back on the back of the circular ornaments and also cut a photo to be circular and stick it onto the patterned paper. (TIP: If you haven't got a circle cutter or circle dies you can just glue your paper to the ornament and use your craft knife to cut around the edges.) This would be a great way to personalise your ornaments and would make a great little gift for doting grandparents :)

We will add another couple of photos of ornaments over on our facebook page.

Thanks for stopping by.

Stef
