Don't forget to put the Advent Calendars out tonight

I just remembered in the nick of time,  to get the boys Advent calendars out this evening.  
As usual I have only put in a couple of days worth of treats as Kiwa,  has in the past, 
 eaten everything in one go. 

I made these kaiser craft advent Calendars a couple of years ago and they are wonderful.  Enough room for a couple of chocolates in each box.  So the twins have the green one and Kiwa, as he like to remind me on the odd occasion that he was born all alone,   has the red one to himself.  


If you have the opportunity made one, as they will made great heirlooms for the kids.

My little Mischief boy.

Here is a layout that I completed using Spice Cake - A new Stampin up designer series paper range about to be released with the December 2011 mini catalogue. 

This photo was taken at Hamilton Gardens,  Kiwa was meant to just wait for Arahi and Tira so I could take a photo.  Instead he put on his holdie and walk into the fountain area and proceded to stop the water from flowing,  all the time hoping that I would not turn around and catch him -  wrong! 

I used the large scallop punch to make the flower embellishment on the side. 

I used glimmer mist to alter the colour of the Fleurette's and chipboard flourish.  I also used a Prima Antique Mirror on the layout.

Christmas Gift box and Sweets Wreath.

Christmas box and Sweets Wreath.  I created this box using scrap cardboard.  I covered it using Kaiser paper from their 25 Dec collection.  I used the Stampin up ornament punch to make the embellishments on the top (4 punch cut outs in each.  Each lolly is attached individually to a wide frame, which can also be hung up. 


I also made a couple extra for the School gala

Christmas Crop with Secret Squirrel Paper Craft

What a fantastic Crop 10.00am to 10.00pm.  I spent to day scrapping and chatting and eating,  a great way to spend a Saturday.  Here are some of the things I completed. 

In this layout I used Tims Holtz papers. I tore strips of paper and then wove it in to a mat.  This I used as my base.  The small pieces I had left I used to make the embellishment in the right hand corner. 


This layout I used some papers that I found at the TYPO shop in the plaza.  Not too badly priced. I also used a prima felt branch and a couple of prima flowers

This layout I used prima flowers.
