Merry Christmas to You & Yours

Wishing a very Merry Christmas and wonderful New Year to my family, friends, customer & followers.  I’ve had a fantastic year – both personally and as a Stampin’ Up! demonstrator.  I am forever grateful to have a hobby that inspires me, keeps me busy, gives me a creative outlet, allows me to meet wonderful people & lets me create beautiful ‘art’ for others.  Thank you for sharing in that.  It’s definitely been  a year of JOY . FRIENDSHIP . PEACE . LOVE . HAPPINESS.  I’m looking forward to some exciting adventures on ‘my papercraft journey’ in 2015.  Kelly x

Spinning Santa

image

This one has been ‘spinning around’ as an idea in my head for a while now.  I finally got a chance to sit down and give it a go and it turned out – yay!

I wanted Santa (in some form) to be suspended in the middle of the Circle Card and there he is!  3D but not!  He’s quite easy – have a go.  Kelly x

Choo Choo – Happy “Thomas” Birthday

I will often match a birthday card with the theme of the party or invite.  Ashton’s 2nd birthday invite had a Thomas the Tank Engine theme, so I wanted to try my version of a Thomas Pop n Cuts card I saw on Pinterest (inspiration provided by Patsy Waggoner – here).  Sadly, Pop n Cuts retired this year, but I’ve held on to mine so I can still make cool 3D cards like this one.

Although the original cards was fabulous, I made a few changes.  Instead of a punch art Thomas, I used a template (found on Pinterest … addict much?), I changed up the colour scheme and added in a banner.  Happy Birthday Ashton!  We hope you had a lovely day!  Kelly x
