These cards were made from a sheet of Nitwits decoupage and some scraps of plain and patterned card.

This was made at our last SU class before Christmas.
I must admit I am all Christmas card-ed out, it will be a relief to start making everyday cards again!

This one is a cross between a card and a mini-book as there is enough room under each fold to put a small photo.
If I was to make more of this style I would use die-cut letters (my hand cutting is dire).

Another project from SU class. This was a little bit fiddly but very enjoyable to make.
I've already bought my crackers this year but might make some for next time!

Christmas Pouch

These pouches are very simple to make, apart from the decoration you only need a square of paper. You don't even need scissors or glue.
We made this at SU class but there are instructions all over the web, here's one on You Tube.

Made at SU class this is a gift card holder and matching envelope.
I love this idea because I normally give my brother a gift card and this fancies the present up a bit.

We had an excellent session at SU class a few weeks ago. Rather than make a card we did a variety of Christmas projects, including these tags. The top layer lifts up to reveal the message.

I had already made a batch of tags at home and honestly thought I'd have some left over. Now I've started on the wrapping I realise I need to make more...
So these were my tags -

I used SU Serene Snowflakes to stamp white ink on some red card. Then I cut some tags using a Sizzix die and stamped with Waltzingmouse sentiments and the snowflake stamps and layered them up. My first couple of dozen tags had eyelets but I started to get hand-ache!
Baker's Twine threaded through the holes/ eyelets. Very cheap on Ebay - think I paid £10 for 300 metres which will last an age.

One of the presents I have bought is a new pair of hiking boots so I thought it would be fun to add these Quickutz boots to the tag.

Just about the same as yesterday's cards. I swapped the stamped image for Stampin' Up Dasher and kept the rest the same.

Some similar (but very slightly different) Christmas cards.
All kraft card blanks are by Papermania and have been stamped with Stampin' Up Serene Snowflakes.
The above card has a K& Co sticker that I had kicking around for about six years(!) and I stamped the greeting.

The image on these three cards is by Inkadinkado and I added gold cord or ribbon.


Last of the blue & brown cards from SU class.
