Pics as promised!!

So here are the pics I promised! Here are the finished boxes of cards for my son's school Fundraiser. We raised $200 for the school which they were very grateful for. It was a little stressful to get it finished, but a great experience to help out the school. Might even do it next year!!

Then on to making gifts for school teachers! Now, having 5 children at school, some with 2 or 3 teachers, it makes for a lot of gifts to make for Christmas. So I did something simple and the same for all the teachers, just changing the colours of the papers and ribbons. I saw this idea at the Stampin' Up! Brisbane Regionals, it's just a little post-it-note booklet, quick and easy to make- and I ended up making 8 for teachers (with a little gift bag of choccies!) and a couple for friends as well!

I saw this type of flip calendar on a blog some time ago and thought one day I would try it. So I made it for a friend for Christmas and she absolutely loved it. It was pretty simple to make too.

Then onto the gifts I made for my sister-in-law for Christmas. I stuck to the fancy stationery theme and did another post-it-note booklet, a flip calendar, memo block (yes all the individual papers in the memo block were stamped-I think about 300 sheets!!), and a covered notebook and matching pen. Liv loved it. I thought they turned out quite nicely, if I say so myself!!

I also did a calendar for my parents, and will post that soon.

Looking forward to a new year and more stamping time. I have one more child off to school this year and only one left at home!! So I'm hoping to have more time to stamp and post on my blog.

Hope you all have a safe new year!

Catchya soon, Deb

Bad Blogger!!

I know, it has been far too long! Here are some of the pictures I promised some time ago. I followed a sketch from '52 Sketches' to come up with these pages for a scrapbook workshop. These are pictures of my family taken Christmas 2008. They all scrub up well. I'm still yet to do my titles for these pages, if you have any suggestions, I'd love to hear them.

I will return shortly with some more pics of the fundraiser cards and gifts I made for CHristmas.

Catchya soon, Deb
