Top 12 for 2012

Jumping on the bandwagon here folks and sharing my favourite layouts from past year. I'm not going to share any words, but if you're interested in the story behind the layout, how I put it together or the supply list then feel free to click on the link which will take you to where it was originally blogged. Here they are in no particular order....

Happy New Year Everyone!

The Story of the Twinkle Moments

Just popping in quickly today to wish everyone a very Merry Christmas. We've been very busy here opening presents, singing carols, Skyping the grandparents, putting the turkey on to roast and generally creating precious family moments.

But thank goodness for some down-time as well while the kids are off playing with all their new toys. If you've got 5 minutes to spare then you might be interested in checking out my latest video tutorial on how I put together this Christmassy layout.

It captures the whole process including how I made these 3D stars, which ultimately became the feature embellishment on my page.

Although I don't think they would have made such an impact without the fabulous FWAB Jasmine flourish sparkling away beneath it.

All my other supplies came from Scrap Friends, and the Silhouette files came from the latest JBS digital release. I'm just loving all these designs and can't wait to see what's coming for January.

But in the meantime I'm wishing you all a safe and joyous Christmas season, celebrating the Saviour's birth with those you cherish. I'm off to .....

Funny thing. I was about to write I'm off to prepare the table for lunch. But in actual fact at that moment I had to jump up and save my white walls from the green handprints that Moodles was about to leave after she discovered my Prima chalk inks...

Yep, that sounds about right doesn't it? Merry Christmas everyone!

The Story of My Peace.... or lack thereof

I can't believe we're on the countdown to Christmas.... only hours to go now! Eeekk.... I've still got lots to do. I've had today off (one of the only days I'm having off in the next few weeks but that's a different story) and I've been rushing around like a mad-woman trying to get everything organised. 

Mainly it's been about the present wrapping and last-minute card making. Lucky for me I've had some of this done a while ago. This set of cards for example were finished in November, and they made it up onto the JBS blog earlier in the week.

If you pop over there you'll see the individual cards in detail and a bit of an insight into my creative adventure with them. I've used some of my favourite supplies and go-to Christmas techniques on these. As well as making some new ones like using the cardstock feather as angel wings :-)

But as for me right now.... I've still got a pile of kiddy presents that won't wrap themselves so I'm off to get busy. Hope you're all having a very Merry time.
