Catty Carollers

 Hello Crafters, Cratyfield here for a last bit of inspiration for those last minute 
Christmas cards...and, of course, our December challenge!

CAS greeting card with CMS 416 stamp set

Come and meet my meowing carollers on my blog. I can't guarantee their 
singing voice though... I think strangled cats have been mentioned!

Happy Christmas!!!

Christmas card with bold tidings by Tim Holtz


Hello everyone,

this is my second project for our December challenge.

I made this card with the stencil and two colours that I've already used together for a tag and a wine tag. 

On my blog, you will find the tutorial.

And since this is my last post this year, 

I would like to wish you a merry Christmas and a happy New Year!

December 2021 - Christmas Anything Goes

Welcome to our December Challenge. Can you believe it is the last one for 2021 already? We know how busy everyone is in December so to make it easy for you to enter, we are having a Theme of Christmas Anything Goes . Simple rule, it has to have something to do with Christmas, anything else won't count and will be removed Bah Humbug!!!!!! We are also offering 2 prizes of £20 vouchers to spend at Country View Crafts. These will both be picked by Random Org in January


You can find out how these cats got into this on my blog... 

Plenty of other ideas with the Snarky cats too! 


Good morning and a very happy Wednesday, welcome to December. The big Christmas countdown/rush/blind panic starts now, so I thought I'd better get started with my cards.

For my snowy night scene, I've used some of my newest and some of my oldest Tim Holtz dies and stamps, and more details can be found here on my blog. I'll see you later in the month with the daytime version (same but different lol).

Take care and have a very happy December x


I have made a card for the Christmas - Anything goes Challenge. 

If you'd like to see how I made this card please click HERE to go to my YouTube Channel. 
I will see you again soon with the second inspiration project!

Happy December very favourite time of the year. I LOVE Christmas and everything about it. It has always been such a special time for me and my family. The Christmas music is on, mince pies are being made, decorations hung and presents being bought (no I'm not someone who has Christmas bought and wrapped by 1st December!) . The card I am sharing today is one I have made for my  family using Tim's stamps and dies. He really knows how to do a vintage Christmas. 

This sweet snarky cat is so much like our Billy cat. He managed to grab star from the moonlit sky to wish you all a very Happy Christmas, in his own shy way. Do hop over to my blog here if you would like to see how I made it and perhaps share a glass of virtual mulled wine? Have the best time and I will be back on the 19th with my second Christmas make. 


Hi everyone! As I love all things Christmas, I created this Yule Tide page to celebrate and wish you a Happy December and all the very best for the festive season!

I used some wonderful Tim Holtz and Ranger products to create this page; to see how it all came together, please visit my blog Let's Art Journal. x



Hello everyone,

for our December challenge I created a canvas with a steampunk Christmas tree.
To make this I used many Sizzix dies by Tim Holtz.
If you want to know what dies these are, please hop on my blog.

Happy December!


Hello there! Two quick cards from me for the first of the month - if you're anything like me you'll be running behind schedule - check out my blog for details of how to make these very quick cards! Happy holidays!
