December 2017 - Christmas

Welcome everyone to our last Challenge for 2017
This month Debs has chosen the theme Christmas with the option of Reds, Greens & Rust

We would also like to introduce our new Design Team Member Teresa


Hello and welcome to my first post for the team!

This pretty vintage shrine is full of texture and sparkle. It would make a fabulous gift that could become an heirloom decoration. All the details and more photos can be found on my blog.

Good morning and happy Friday. It's not long now until the big day, and as we have a Christmas challenge, I though I would take the opportunity to make a few gift tags.

As always there are lots more pictures over on my blog, so please pop across and take a look, and bring the mice mince pies with you. Have a very happy December, and I'll see you again later in the month.

Good morning all, the Advent time is opened!
For my first project for our December challenge I made a very vintage Christmas card.
If you want to know, how this one came together, please visit my blog.

It's official, it really does feel a lot like Christmas in blogland! For my first inspiration piece, I went all red & green with a touch of rust.

Come and see how I made this quick card on my blog. And don't worry no stamps have been hurt in its making.

Hello there! Its December already and if you haven't already started making things for Christmas now's your chance!!! I do hope you can join us! My card is made with Paperartsy stamps and there is more detail on my blog here
Miriam here....I cannot believe it's December already!!
Here is my first project for the month

Pop over to my blog to see how I created this.
Enjoy the rest of the Christmas inspiration!

Hello Everybody,
For our December challenge,
I created a card with a red and green holiday knit background and with a rusty reindeer.
If you want to know more about my card, please hop on my blog!
Thank you and happy crafting!
Good morning, wow we have arrived at the 1st day of December. I can start my countdown to Christmas, my favourite time of the year. I have used the optional theme of red/green/rust for my December makes. Both feature bells, to ring out the joy of this wonderful season of goodwill.
Today I am sharing this one, my Jingle Bells card.

I have a step by step of how I made this over on my blog here where a glass of sherry warm welcome awaits. I wonder if Santa has got the sleigh out yet ready to jingle all the way! Are you ready? 
Bye for now,
Hello everyone, 

For this month's Christmas Challenge I have used non-traditional colours for an Art Journal page. 

If you'd like to know how I made this then hop over to my BLOG where I explain all ! 

I'll see you soon with some more inspiration !
