December Workshop...

Hi all,

Hope your weekend is going well. Well, I had my last workshop for this year, and I think the ladies enjoyed making a card with a difference :) We made a stair step card which I cased by Ellen (KEA2004) from SCS, which was originally cased by Julie. Note: I changed the dimensions from the original template, so that it would fit in our UK standard sized envelope. I enjoyed creating this card using most of the stamps from Season of Joy and I look forward to making more of these in the near future.

Next, the ladies made a Peek A Boo Box using the Love You Much stamp set that I received as Blog Candy in October to celebrate the release of the new Idea Book & Catalogue. We used a wheel to run over five of the six faces of the cube, and used a number of punches to create the peep hole and the topper.

Stampin' Up! Christmas Wish List Service

This message will stay at the top till 5 December.
Please scroll down for new posts.

Are you a bit fed up of receiving presents such as chocolates, smellies and slippers for Christmas? Would you like crafty presents instead, but afraid your family/friends will buy you the wrong craft goodies? Well how about a Stampin' Up! Wish List from me?

Fill in my Wish List form and mail it back to me which I will safely store for you. Then give your family/friends my contact details when they ask you what you'd like for Christmas. They can contact me and between us, we can select what Stampin' Up! goodies to purchase off your Wish List according to their budget and can organise to have them delivered either direct to your door or have them sent here for collection. How easy is that? What a happy bunny you'll be knowing that you'll get some craft goodies you've been wishing for!

For a copy of the Wish List form or more information, please email me on alexhau@rocketmail.com.

Please Note:
All Wish List orders must reach me by Saturday 5 December to ensure delivery in time for Christmas.

Alternatively, if a Gift Voucher is more your thing, I can arrange to have these in any denomination for your family/friends to purchase from me. These have no expiry date and can be used at any time. For your Gift Voucher to be received in time for Christmas, please let me know asap so that it catches the last First Class Christmas posting - 21 December.

Looking forward to hearing from you soon.
