Golden Boots!

Hi everyone 

Thank you for joining me again for my third post this evening. Once I have got myself more oranised I am going to start scheduling regular posts rather then saving up my projects and bombarding you all like tonight. 

A while ago I made an Ice Skate from Sandra's Scrapshop and my mum fell in love with it. Mum asked me to make her one to match her Christmas decorations. My mum can be a bit posh when it comes to Christmas decorations. She will only have gold in the house no other colours and the tree is done with military precision - something we delight in ribbing her about!   So I thought gold! I have some gold pearl card I got from our local market so decided to use that and some Gold & White Christmas papers from Etsy. Everything in this boot is cut on the Silhouette Cameo. 

Cutfiles used:
Cameo Shape Design IDs:
Nested Poinsettia - Design ID #15148
Scroll Tree - Design ID #35981
Christmas Ornaments Corner  - Design ID #69276
Merry Christmas - Design ID #5064
'Dec 25' Hanging Star  - Design ID #35813
3d Snowflake Gift Bow - Design ID #69560
Snowflakes - various ones used. Search snowflake in the store - theres 1000s!!! 

The centre boc is perfect for standing candy canes or other Christmas treats in.

Advent time!

Hi everyone 

tonights second post is bringing you something (well, two things really) that I have been working on for a few weeks and finally finished them earlier this evening. 

My kids are going to love these!

Images used - TeddyBea 270 & TeddyBo 151
Blue Papers - NitWits Snowfolk
Ribbons - Primrose Crafts

The boxes are matchbox style boxes made 4" x 2" and stacked in 4 layers of 4 then I used papers and ribbon to decorate. I finished them off with an easel card on top of each. 

I can't wait to show the kids these! I think I might even make myself one hehe. Now who thinks these chocolates are going to last until the 1st??
