Sincerely Santa Project Kit & Signs of Santa

Good Day Crafty Friends,

I have a quick post to share today. Its a Christmas Card with a little difference. The Wood Texture DSP completely changed the look I was initially going for but I liked so I ran with it.

The Red/White Candy Striped Gift Tag comes in the Sincerely Santa Project Kit, as does the Gold Foil banner, Gold Foil Stars, and Doily which has been coloured with a Stampin' Blend.

The Wood Background has been adhered to a layer of Whisper White and then Real Red card stock before attaching to the Whisper White Card Base.

The sentiment from Blended Seasons has been white heat embossed onto Black card stock and fussy cut before adhering to the white circle die cut.

Mrs Claus is from the Signs of Santa stamp set (page 19 - Holiday Catalogue). She has been coloured using Stampin' Blends and fussy cut before adhering to the card front with mini dimensionals.

I absolutely adore the Mrs Claus and Santa images from this stamp set. I love that I could colour her dress in Pink as I definitely wanted a few Christmas Cards in my stash that had some pink. This makes me happy lol

As I write this post and look at the date it is scheduled for, I am instantly reminded what day it is tomorrow.......Its Onstage time!!!!!!! All over the world, thousands of Stampin' Up! Demonstrators are gathering to celebrate Stampin' Up! and their 30th year birthday anniversary. I am so envious, especially of those that are flying all the way for the big three day celebration in Orlando, Florida!!! OMG, imagine that, a 3 day convention jam packed with loads of loveliness and all those theme parks, not too mention, yummy food, all the other destinations that have been on my bucket list since I was a child. 

If you follow any of the Demonstrators attending one of the many conventions around the world, be sure to check out their posts over the next few days, they will be sharing loads and loads of pics of their awesome events, including all the new products!!!! I cannot wait to see what is coming and to get my hands on that new catalogue. The suspense is killing me LOL

Thanks for stopping by today. Until next time, stay awesome and stay crafty

Sincerely Santa Project Kit & Santa's Workshop M&M

Good Day Crafty Friends,

Hope its been a great one. How is your Christmas Card making going? I think I can comfortably say I am 3/4 of the way through my list, so not many to go now. Wahooooo!  I have also made loads of Christmas Gift Tags this year as Stampin' Up! have some pretty amazing products that made it easy to produce a whole heap all at once. The Tags & Tidings stamp set (Page 24 Holiday Catalogue) is one of those products that made for super fast and uber cute gift tags.

The other really cool products I have mixed and matched for both Christmas Gift Tags and Cards are the Santa's Workshop Memories and More Card Pack and the Sincerely Santa Project Kit (Pages 21 & 32 - Holiday Catalogue).

Today's card uses the Red/White candy striped Gift Tag from the Sincerely Santa Project Kits and embellishments from the Santa's Workshop Memories & More Card Pack - jingle sentiment, holly and Elf image are all stickers in the Card Pack. The Gold Foil banner and Gold Foil stars are part of the Sincerely Santa Project Kit.

I had some Real Red DSP from a retired Valentines themed DSP Pack that I wanted to use up so cut a diagonal panel and used it for the card background. I also used a retired Gold Foil doily as I thought it could do with some more shiny stuff.....you can never have enough bling or shiny stuff right? lol

Sincerely Santa Kit meets Santa's Workshop M&M Cards

Hello Hello Crafty Friends,

Hope you are having a fabulous day. Its been an absolutely stunning day here and I can feel that the start of summer is just around the corner. It is actually a great time to be out and about in the Perth region, the days have warmed, but not too hot for leisurely walks with the fur babies and the spring flowers are still in bloom, which is a bonus. There has been a little bit of rain recently too, so there is lots of water in the parks ponds which the local wildlife are loving.

Today's card is a mixture of Santa's Workshop Memories & More Card Pack, DSP and some items from the Sincerely Project Santa Kit. This is the cutest Gift Tag Kit that comes in the sweetest Green and White Candy striped tin. The Sincerely Santa Project Kit makes 30 Gift Tags and for $38 AUD its great value and easy to complete. It also has a coordinating stamp set (see page 32 of the Holiday Catalogue)

I started with a Whisper White card base to which I added a panel of Coastal Cabana DSP. This dotty DSP is part of the Brights 6x6 DSP Pack. A layer of Real Red card stock was added and next another layer of Whisper White with a faint Coastal Cabana Watercolour wash. A strip of the Coastal Cabana DSP has been adhered with Tombow before adding the Red/White Candy Striped Tag from the Sincerely Santa Project Kit.

Also from the Sincerely Santa Project Kit - the Gold detailed edge Circle die cut, gold foil banner and Doily (which I have coloured Pink with a Stampin' Blend). The Elf image has been fussy cut from a Santa's Workshop Memories & More card. The Santa Seal and Holly are both stickers from the same M&M Card Pack.

The White Bakers Twine comes in the Sincerely Santa Project Kit. I tell you, that Kit is full of goodies - I especially adore the little silver bells and wish there were enough for all the Gift Tags in the Project Kit. 

That's all for today folks. Thanks so much for stopping by today. I do appreciate each and every visitor and all the shout outs when you case a card. I love what I do and love sharing it with you all.

Until next time, stay awesome and stay crafty

Tags & Tidings Christmas Card

Good Day Crafty Friends,

I have a quick post to share with you today.....one I forgot to post while I was on holiday!! I am pretty sure I posted it on Instagram and hence why I thought I had shared it already.


The Tags and Tidings stamp set has sixteen images on the one stamp. It has been designed to coordinate with the Christmas Tags Thinlits to die cut all those images into gorgeous little Christmas gift tags. I have used it as a background, inspired by the picture above.

Jaxx Crafty Creations, Stampin' Up!, Tags & Tidings, Christmas Card, Heat Embossing, Petal and More Thinlits, Hexagons Embossing Folder,


This card uses one of the Silver Foil Edged card bases which can be found on page 11 of the Holiday Catalogue. It has matching Silver Foil Edged envelopes and is also available in Gold. 

A piece of Real Red card stock has been Silver Heat Embossed with the Tags and Tiding stamp set. To this a die cut scalloped circle was added, this was embossed using the Hexagon embossing folder and adhered with Tombow. 

The Santa Claus image from Signs of Santa stamp set has been coloured using Stampin' Blends and then fussy cut (although there are coordinating dies available) Before adhering the Santa image with dimensionals I added a Silver Foil border die cut, made using a thinlit from the Petals & More Thinlits.

Christmas Memories & More Cards using Santa's Workshop Cards

Hello Crafty Friends,

How has your day been? Hopefully its been a great one for you. I had another productive day today, located all the Christmas Decorations and got some of them ready to be hung in a few weeks. The Christmas Tree is looking a bit sad so I am hoping I can convince Hubby it needs a little side kick in the form of a smaller similar looking tree (or two! I like symmetry so one either side of the larger Christmas Tree would be the bees knees, but somehow I think I may be pushing it with three trees lol)
I have more cards to share with you today that were created last week during one of my midnight card making sessions lol. They were all quick and easy to make as they use cards from the Santa's Workshop Memories and More Card Pack. You can see the previous posts here.

Card 5

This is a fun and bright card using a fussy cut image as the main focal point. The panels on the card base have been diagonally cut from two of the smaller M&M cards and lined with Silver Foil card before adhering to the Whisper White Card Base.



A Silver Foil doily has been tucked behind the fussy cut Santa. To finish the card, the sticker sentiment was added using mini dimensionals.


Card 6

Again another quick and easy card that uses the one of the larger Santa's Workshop Memories & More cards, cut on a diagonal. Before adhering the diagonal panel to the Whisper White card front, it was lined with a thin strip of Red Glimmer Paper. 

The Large Letter Framelits were used to die cut the letters J and Y from the same Glimmer Paper. To form the letter O of the word JOY I used a white doily and added one of the Elf Stickers from the M&M card pack. To finish the card I added the little date label to help balance out the slope in the lettering.


I have a few more cards in this batch to share with you, so be sure to check back here again soon for more inspiration using these fun and festive Memories and More cards.

Thanks for stopping by today. Until next time, stay awesome and stay crafty
