Christmas Cards 2014

Hellooooooooo, I doubt that anyone is still out there but if you are, don't fall off your chair!!  I actually made a few Christmas things the other week so thought I'd put them here before this blog rusts away completely and disintegrates!!

I had visits from two lovely crafty friends last month...Helen & Wendy....and while they were here I was inspired to papercraft!!  Something I haven't done much of for a long time.  I made 36 SU Curvy Keepsake Boxes while Helen was are the pieces all in a pile...

I made them with DP front & back panels, then made little tree and bauble tags to go on them, stamped with "Joy".  I used my SU Christmas dies from my stash for the tags.

Then I made a curvy box from Kaiser DP and added a panel on the front with a ......wait for it.....coloured image!!!!!!!!!   Yes, I know it's a shock but I had this cute stamped image in my stash (from a retired SU set) and it fitted perfectly in the panel, so I decided to colour it up and stick it on.
Helen blogged it and entered it in Bronwyn's challenge...CASE-ing the Catty.... for me.  I was soooo excited to find that it was chosen as Top Pick Happy Dance :)  Here's the box....

The day Helen left, Wendy arrived.....musical visitors lol  While Wendy was here I made a few Christmas cards.  I didn't make any at all last year :(  So it was good to get at least a few done for this year, so I can send them to the special people in my life :)  Here's what I've made so far......

I just love the little houses and trees that SU have in their holiday catty this year, so had to have both sets, including the dies & tree punch.  I think they will get a lot of use if I can get back into papercrafting on a regular basis.  I also made a little tag/bookmark....not entirely happy with this but the house is still cute :)

This was a CASE from one of Helen's Christmas cards, as was the single house with Santa sleigh card.  The tree card is Helen's design also but instead of all the trees being punched, I chose to stamp & emboss the three background trees and just have two punched & raised trees at the front.  Thank you Helen for letting me CASE copy your designs :)  The step card was inspired by one I saw on Pinterest....I changed it up a bit then added my own twist with the night sky background.

Anyhow, that's it from me for however long.....have a wonderful day and thanks for looking :)
