Secret Santa Part 4

Well this is my last post for Secret Santa and I’ll be sharing what I made and bought to give to Marelle.

First up is the initial presentation. The Gift Bag.

I’ve decorated a standard white paper bag using some Cherry Cobbler Cardstock and Jolly Holiday DSP on both sides of the bag. I’ve then cut out ‘Merry Christmas Marelle’ using some Jolly Holiday DSP, Timeless Type Junior Alphabet Die and of course my Big Shot which appears on the front along with a line of Basic Jewel – Rhinestones. All girls love bling! Don’t they??

What’s inside the bag??

Lots of goodies.

First item out of the bag is a slider which contained one of Marelle’s favourite sweets – Peanut Brittle. It’s actually one of mine too although I was good and only purchased some for Marelle.

Next item out of the bag was this.

I’ve been seeing a lot of these Star boxes around the blogging world lately and thought it would make a lovely addition to my gifts for Marelle. The box is one of Lauren Meaders wonderful tutorial creations.

What’s inside?

Another of Marelle’s favourite sweets – Toffees. Well I hope they are okay as Marelle did say ‘hard’ toffees and these are English Toffees and aren’t exactly hard.

The third item out of the bag was these little hexagonal boxes which are a tutorial from DigiChick.

Inside these boxes was my Stampin’ Up product purchases.

One contains a pack of Brights Brads and the other a pack of Brights Buttons.

And the final gift in the bag was……

One of my Tissue Box covers. I was thrilled with how this one turned out. The colours are just gorgeous and better still Marelle loved it too.

I was asked by numerous fellow team members if I have a tutorial for my Tissue Box Covers and the answer at the moment is NO but I do have intentions of doing one up. I’m not sure if it will be before Christmas though as I have more end of school things on this week, plus a holiday before Christmas, but you never know I might get enough spare time to get it done and share with you all. When it’s done it will appear in my sidebar with the other tutorials so just keep watch. I’ll also post a brief message to let you know it’s ready for those that regularly visit or follow.

One last photo of all the items together.

Feel free to leave me a comment and let me know what you think of my gifts for Marelle.

Till next time….

Secret Santa Part 3

Now to share the items I made for my partner who was none other than our fabulous Team Leader, Marelle Taylor.

Here is the card I sent her earlier in the week.

Actually to tell you the truth this isn’t her card but one very similar. I went and popped hers into the Post Box only to realise that I didn’t take a picture beforehand so came home and whipped up another while I remembered what it was like……lol

I decorated the inside too with some of that gorgeous Cherry Cobbler paper from the Jolly Holiday DSP pack.

Decorating the inside just makes the card that much nicer and of course ties it all together.

Tomorrow I’ll share the gifts Marelle received at our Team dinner.

Till then…..

Contempo Christmas

I had my last September Stamp-A-Stack class today so now I can share the cards with you that we made.

The card for today is using the lovely new Christmas set ‘Contempo Christmas’, new Jolly Holiday DSP and the gorgeous new colour, Cherry Cobbler.

This is a very quick card which makes for a great Stamp-A-Stack card or a great card when you need to make large quantities. I’ll be making some more of these up for my personal Christmas cards this year along with a few other designs.

Now for a look at the whole card.

See a very simple card and quick to mass produce.

I’m so loving the new Cherry Cobbler colour and can see me using lots of it any time of the year.

Pop back tomorrow to see the other card we made for September.

Stamp sets: Contempo Christmas, Many Merry Messages (used on insert)
Card: Old Olive, Cherry Cobbler, Very Vanilla, Jolly Holiday DSP
Ink: Cherry Cobbler inkpad, Old Olive, Cherry Cobbler & More Mustard Stampin’ Write Markers.

Till next time….
