Festive Greetings....

Hiya my crafty friends! This will most likely be my final post this year (maybe) and I feel I should apologise for my lack of new posts this month. However its not that I've been resting on my creative laurels - oh no! I've been busy recycling piles of other peoples Chrimbly cards (from last year) and turning them into tags for the school craft fair. Oh and then there was the magnetic peg memo holders and the xmas cards and money envelopes etc... So with all that and Xmas shopping etc - phew! But I do have lots of ideas for next year that I want to try out. I love the new scrapbooking mag that came out last month - Scrap365, (yay I won a 6 month subscription which makes it even better) and have found a good few inspiring projects in there that I'm going to get going with as soon as the madness here calms down. Did anyone else love that Glue Book and the self made Smash Book? Oh I'll get some of those scrap bits of stash used up yet...
Meanwhile I'll leave you with a pic of a notebook made for a xmas pressie (dust off that bind-it-all) using some recycled corrie cardboard, vintage dictionary pages and my favourite glue ever - Golden Gel which dries with a bumpy brushed texture. Love it! Hope Santa brings you all new stash to play with!
Have a fabsy Christmas everyone!
Peace, Love and Creativity!

  1. Hi Jak

    Lovely to see you posting again, thanks so much for your lovely comment on my blog, my Mum really loved the album I made for her, and I think it must have brought back lots of lovely memories for her too :)

    Wow! it sounds like you've been very busy, crafty wise, love the sound of everything, and love your journal and little pegs, Gosh! how cute are those? just adorable!

    I've not seen the new scrapbooking mag, but know that some of the girls were talking about one, on the DC forum recently, I think it got mixed views (if it's the same one) but I've personally not seen it yet, so will keep an eye out, it's just nice to know that there's one out there, I still miss Scrapbook Inspirations, and sometime take a peek back at some of the old copies I still have before they went bust :(
    Well done on winning your subscription too!

    Good luck with your smash book, I tried to make one myself recently. I spent a whole night on it, but really wasn't very happy with mine.

    I was naughty and crumbled in the end, and bought one, plus one each for the kids for Christmas, thought it would be a fun project for us to do together.
    They arrived this week, and I am soooooo delighted with them.
    I went for the blue retro, and then ordered another pink one for me, lol!

    They were £9.99 each with free P&P from Oyster Stamps, with fab service.
    The pink one is soooo scrummy! I normally try to recycle as much as I can, but would highly recommend going for this one Jak, the papers are such fun and really lovely too.

    Saying that, I do love the handmade ones too (just not mine, lol) so shall look forward to seeing yours.

    Hope you and your family have a fab Christmas.
    Suzie xxx :)
