Merry Christmas …….. Ho! Ho! Ho!

Happy Wednesday,

Are you all enjoying the Christmas shows on Create & Craft/Ideal World?  What a launch show last night ……… busy, busy, busy as usual.  Kay worked her magic again with the brand new Indigo Blu Christmas range for 2013, and even though it was a late show, it looks like you all stayed up and are loving the new stamps as much as we do.

The Christmas Cracker is a fabulous kit and what a price!!!  Go on, treat yourself and get this years Christmas crafting off to a great start.

Did you all guess what my tease was last week?  I decided to use the whole kit and create a beautiful set of ornaments, that can be used to decorate your own tree, or, given away as a special gift.

I must confess, I didn’t make the outer box, I just decorated it.  It’s actually an old aftershave gift box left over from last Christmas.  I knew it would come in handy for something.

Each of the MDF ornaments was painted using the brand new Acrylic paints.  These are an absolute dream to work with.  Great coverage, just from one coat.  Quick drying, so no hanging around waiting, and a great range of colours too.   Definitiely a must have for anyone’s crafty stash.  If you would like a chance a winning a set of these, we’ve got a great  Giveaway running at the moment.  All you have to do is leave your name on Clare’s post   before 8pm on Sunday 23rd June, and you could be the lucky winner.

Decorating the ornaments was so much fun.  You can see I’ve used each of the six stamps that come in the Christmas Cracker (available from Create and Craft/Ideal World – while stocks last!).













Don’t forget about the backs too ………

Here I’ve just taken part of the ‘I Wish You a Merry Christmas’ stamp and added a couple of small Poinsettias.

And for this one I’ve used the Mega flakes with the stunning Large Snowflake stamp. However you choose to decorate the baubles, they’re going to look fab hanging from your Christmas tree.  You could even do matching Christmas cards and give them as little gifts.

Don’t forget Kay’s on TV until Friday this week ……..

Wed 19th  4pm Create & Craft

Thu 20th  6pm Ideal World  and

Fri  21st    3pm & 8pm  Ideal World

I’ve just posted another box of samples off to Kay this morning, talk about last minute I know.  They should be on the show tomorrow ……… here’s a quick tease for you

Well, that’s it from me today.  I hope I’ve put you in the mood for Christmas.

It’s really hard to imagine it being December with the weather we’ve got here today. It’s glorious out there, sunshine, blue skies, not a cloud in sight.  I think it’s time I got out there for half an hour, before it all changes.  I’ve got about 45 mins before Kay’s back on air.

Hope it’s nice where you are.  Enjoy the rest of your day, and thanks for popping by.

Oh, before I go …….. there’s still a little time left to enter the current Forever 21 Challenge.  You’ve got until 8pm tomorrow to get your Backgrounds Galore entries in.  The DT will be back on Friday with a brand new Challenge ……… I wonder what this months theme is???

Cheerio for now
