Christmas Greetings and Goodies

I just thought I'd share with you the Christmas goodies I put together for friends and family as a little something. Everyone loved them as everyone loves to receive handmade items as they are put together with love and energy which is greatly appreciated in this time poor society we live in. I made 30 of the bags...this was very time consuming as that involved making over 500 biscults.
I would like to wish all my blog readers and all the Stampin' Up blogs I have visited a Merry Christmas and Happy New Year.
Thank you also to all the Stampin' Up demonstrators I have purchased items from this year and all the ideas I have received from you.

Christmas Present - Scrapbooking Pages

I have spent the last week trying to fit everything into life preparing for Christmas, unfortunately I had decided to make scrapbooking pages for Christmas presents. I had to source photos from their family and friends so I had to do them at the last minute as I only received the photos. These four pages were for Michelle Schultz a friend I have known now for about 7 years and who I know would really treasure these pages of myself and her family. As I had dinner with her and Christine Ross on Friday evening I can share these with you.

I know I have been really slack in posting over the last month but here is this morning effort. An engagement card for Andrea and Peter who got engaged in front of their friends a couple of weekends ago and it's taken me this long to find some time to complete this creation.

I also have finally finished my 71 individually designed cards, most of them were posted on Monday but I had the last seven to complete earlier today. If I have some spare time soon, I might post a few of these.

Stamp Set: Always, Short & Sweet, Warmest Regards
Ink: Soft Sky, Groovy Guava
Card: Whisper White, Soft Sky Textured, Groovy Guava Textured
Accessories: Groovy Guava Double-Stitched Ribbon

Trip to Melbourne

It's been a long time since I have posted anything on my blog but I have been on a 6 day trip to Melbourne for work and to catch up with friends a couple of weeks ago and my spare time has been taken up with my Christmas preparations including more cards (and the two page newsletter that was included) and a scrapbooking page or two.
