Video : How to make a Shaker Christmas Tag / Ornament!

I don’t know about you but I always forget to make my tags… that is until I start wrapping the presents lol.  And this is not necessarily a bulk tag to create but it is perfect for that special person or family.  But it was fun to make so I thought I would share the process with you!

You can see my video here or Watch it in HD at Youtube.

Setting the Scene… a Christmas Publication!

My apologies in advance, today’s post is a bit of a marathon.  I just want to share some cards that I had published with the Australian Cardmaking, Stamping & Papercraft magazine for Christmas this year.

These first two cards were a stamper’s challenge using a sweet set from Clearly Besotted called ‘Set the Scene’.

Whoa, stop the train, are you telling me it’s November already?  Gotta get those cards done and ready to post in the mail.  so I thought I would share some of my process with you….   hopefully without the ‘panic’ in my voice.

One of my fave things to do is ‘stretch my stamps’ and there are so many non traditional stamps out there that could be used for the holiday season, don’t you think that a Christmas frog is a great idea?   Well….  I thought it was lol.
