I wasn’t orignally going to get the Curvy Keepsake Box Thinlit Die but then I kept seeing so many cute ideas using it on Pinterest that I just had to have it! One of my absolute favourites and probably the one that tipped be over the edge was this cute Santa box:
Isn’t it so cute!! It’s just perfect for fitting in a few chocolates, using as a little dinner table favour, or if you give cash as a gift then what better way to package it!

This is the second of the projects we created at the recent Party Time event here in Wellington. I have loved the Choose Happiness stamp set ever since Shelli demonstrated with it at our South Pacific Convention this year but didn’t yet own it, so I was really pleased to be able to use it at the event:
Once again I have used Blendabilities for my colouring – this time going deliberately for a distinct shift in the colours rather than a smooth blend. I also love the cluster of sequins in the centre of the flower – its a pretty finishing touch!

Woops I forgot to post at the end of last week! A lot is happening here at the moment so I am a little out of my normal routine but today is the start of another week and a chance to try again, right?
Another card using the Holiday Home stamp set today – can you tell how much I love this set?!
I abandoned Christmas this time in favour of a Happy New Home card. I coloured the house with my blendabilities - I love how bright & vibrant the colours are using these markers. One little change I would make it I could go back and fix it would be to stamp the little heart above the greeting instead of below.
Have a great week everyone – and don’t forget there are only 5 weeks ’til Christmas!
