CHRISTMAS COUNTDOWN PROJECT KIT – Make your very own special advent calender!

Welcome to the weekend all!!

The rain is coming down here today and it is beautiful to see and hear.  A little fur baby isn’t happy though and doesn’t like storms so Tilly is hiding in our wardrobe!   I hope the drought ravaged areas are getting some.  With the rain outside what better time to spend in the craft room.  Before we left overseas I ordered the beautiful Christmas Countdown project kit and have finally had time to make it up.  Such a fantastic project to make yourself as the kit comes with everything you will need.  What fun it would be to open a drawer every day in December and find a little treat!  Great for a family activity together as well.  I used some stamps that I already had but no stamping required if you down’t want to as the kit has everything you need (except the glue) but there are some lovely stick on decorations as well.  Check it out on page 38 of the Holiday catalogue.

If you purchase the kit, I will provide a free class (cost of refreshments only $5) where you can put it altogether plus a fun morning or afternoon of crafting.  If you wish to stamp anything I will also supply stamps and inks to use at the class.   Call me to place your order and book the class ASAP.  Or order the kit at my 24/7 online shop and call or message me to book a suitable time for the class.  Call 0419721561.

Hi all,

Sorry for the delay in this Coffee and Card Class post but there was an update on my phone and the photos were saved in a different format!!   I will say no more but thank my husband for being my IT Department and finally got them sorted!   Crisis averted!!

So the card we made on Tuesday was a Christmas card using the Brightly Gleaming DSP as mentioned in my previous blog post today.  This is a good all round DSP not just for Christmas.  Check it out in the Holiday Catalogue.

Here’s the card

Thank you again for all the lovelies who came along for a fun morning yet again.  Petra, Dell, Judy, Gloria, Helen, Barb and Chris.   Coffee and Card Classes are held the second Tuesday of each month at 9.30am Rountable Coffee Gawain Road Bracken Ridge.  Cost of the class is $5 – purchase your own coffee and come and make a card and join in the fun!  Bookings essential please call Beth o 0419721561.


Let me know a type of card you would like to see me make so I can make it and post it here. I will select two cards – I will need the occasion and a colour scheme of your choice – I will accept the challenge as I love a challenge!!!  And  go…..

Well another short blog post but hey got two out in one day!  Now I’m off to do a bit of work in the garden after the beautiful bit of rain we have had.  Until next time, keep on crafting.


Hi all,

Just a message to let you know that the upcoming scrapbooking class scheduled for Tuesday 15th will need to be postponed.  Unfortunately I have a few medical issues I need to deal with – let’s just say old age is catching up but I’m not going to let it stop me, just need to have a few repairs done so this bod can keep up with my mind!

Hope you are all well and don’t forget to check out the Holiday Catalogue here on my blog page.  This Snowfall Accents Puff Paint is awesome.  Adds great texture to any project.

But I have to show you the most beautiful DSP in the catalogue, my favourite is the brightly gleaming DSP.  Those lovelies who came to the Coffee and Card class got to use it and see how beautiful it is.  Not only does it have use at Christmas time but all year round, as you will see.  Of course all double sided.  The card we made at the coffee and card class used both sides of the paper.








As I leave this blog post for today, I will keep you informed of upcoming classes and events  but if you would like to order any of the products please feel free to do so by using my online 24/7 safe and secure shop here on my blog post, just one click away.  Both the Holiday Catalogue and the Annual Catalogue are here on my blog page for you to view.    Or if you want, please feel free to contact me on 0419721561 to place your order or to get your paper copy of the catalogues.

There will be a Christmas Card making day coming up soon as well as the postponed scrapbooking class.

Look forward to seeing you soon.   Take care and keep on crafting!
