Christmas Gifts

Cards & Crafts for Christmas is in the shops today and I am delighted to have a feature included on making gifts for book/magazine/stationery lovers in it.


I created a little desk tidy/calendar using the gorgeous First Edition Wild Flower Paper Pad.


I created the little drawers with my Spellbinders Perfect Match Die, it really makes life so much easier - I added some little brads to open them with.


I created the flowers with my Joy Crafts Flower Stamp, I stamped and fussy cut a selection and layered them up for dimension.  I found the calendar pages on the internet.


Make sure you pick up a copy of the magazine it contains 134 festive projects for the perfect crafty Christmas, including cards, gifts, knitting, sewing and crochet!  PLUS there are 4 FREE GIFTS - a designer paper pack from Crafter's Companion, Polkadoodles & NitWit Collections, 5 digital stamps, 2 bendy card cutting files and a bonus template sheet!

Thank you for visiting my blog today, your company is much appreciated.

Fantastic project Pauline, the papers look full of colour and vibrancy, I didn't realise that there was a die that made the template for this box, shows you how out of touch I am, you have done a wonderful job with this
