E I E I O - Double Page

Cr 006

I finished this page last night. I have been wanting to do this page for ages now - every time I look at these photos I think of Old Mac Donald!!!! I found these stickers which were perfect and I just love the new chipboard square circles borders - these are now on my on-line shop. 

Well I need to know do you like these puff stickers and should I put some on the on-line shop?

Christmas Tags / Tree Decorations


Well this is a great project for the kids. Shanice used large puffy stickers and I helped her cut out a shape for each sticker. This was going to be tree decorations and then she decided that they are going to be used for gift tags - but she's not sure. So I'll have to wait and see!!!!

This is a cheap project to keep them busy  - R30 and they can make 7 tags + it keeps them busy for about an hour.

Well I think they are quite cute and I really hope they end up on our Christmas Tree!!! :)

Hanging Advent Calendar

Advent Chip

This is a hanging advent calendar made out of chip. Behind each door is a tiny little envelope with something in it and theses envelopes can be removed - You could use them on your Christmas pages.
I already have my advent calendar, so this is a gift for someone special and hopefully they get it before Christmas? 
Well I'd love to know what you think? Should I get some in stock ASAP? Should I make up some kits?????

Photo Wheel - Circle Of Change

Photo Wheel

Eventually I have finished the photo wheel and I decided to call it the Circle of Change. All about me from then (baby) to now. 

The photo wheel is made out of chipboard and has place for 7 photos, it also has 2 spacers that you will put in the middle of the 2 circles. This photo wheel fits perfectly onto a 12 X 12 page.

Well now I need to make one for Hubby, Mother dearest & my sister - I think this will make a great gift? Hopefully I can share more ideas for the photo wheel soon!!!!
