Paper Christmas decorations

Well christmas is not far away and yes,  I am getting the Teachers end of the year gifts started.  Here is one idea I have,  A christmas origami Ball.  I used the latest stampin up xmas designer paper.   I have made these for teh school gala as well. 


I will make a gift box for the decoration this week.  Watch this space. 

Christmas sweets Wreath

Here is one of the Xmas wreaths we gave to one of the boys teachers last year and I also made some for the School gala.

As with the previous wreaths it take approx 1 kg of lollies and a very sturdy wire ring. 
(you can not use a coat hanger)
I made the box from scratch use to the size.

Nature Calls

I love this shot taken a couple of years ago of Kiwa playing hide and seek at Flat point beach.  He never quite mastered the rules and kept bobbing up and down as his brother were trying to play the game. 

I used a fab new paper range from fabscraps.  I created a layout template and Sarah E and I then, using the same paper and embellishments created a layout each.  Here is mine. 

I used a Tim holtz die for the leaf detail down the side and I used some florist wire to give the prima flowers a little more lift.  Hope you like it.

This layout received an award in the Scrapbook Awards People's Choice for Oct/Nov 2012

Sneak peek Layout

Here are a couple of layouts that I completed at the recent Scrap2Max scrap camp. 

 Sneak peek:  This is Tira during our holiday in Hamilton.    
I cut the design out of the patterned paper adhered it together with flowers to a contrasting paper.  
Cutie:  Kiwa when he was not quite a year old.  

Plain black cardstock is used to highlight the beautiful Kaiser paper.  Again I cut out the design from the pattern paper.  I used some prima flowers on top of some Stampin up lace.  
Other items:  Kindy glitter and some old jewellery.
