Jingle All The Way!

I nipped into my local fabric shop for some fleece the other day - more of this later, if I get time before Christmas! The snow had just cleared and boy, were the pavements icy. I almost skated into the flipping shop.

Whilst there I had a little rummage through a box of Christmas die cuts - well, it would have been rude not to! I found, buried right at the bottom, a packet of five quite lovely reindeer die cuts. The packet was the only one otherwise I would have bought more :(

This is what I rustled up - another five cards made - yippee!!

The reindeer were cut from different coloured mirri card - the top one here is silver (that wretched pink blush crept in again when I was taking the photo!). The cards are 6" square ones and the background paper are from my stash - from Craft Creations I'm pretty sure. The googly eyes came from my stash again as did the little lilac bow with a bell and the plain red bow. The sentiments are from a box I found recently that I'd collected from Lakeland Limited, back in the days when they sold some pretty nice card making stuff. Then just couple of little gems added to each end of the sentiments bring them a bit more to life.

I'm only left with the House Mouse decoupaged cards to make up (all the decoupage is done and assembled though).......oops, and a load of inserts to make for about 60 cards, thankfully I did some as I went along. Simples!!



  1. What a cute die cut you found in the bargain bin! Effective use of a crafting stash staple. Well done.

  2. Hi Karen

    Have just surfaced in between mad panic finishing off of cards, and such. Still not finished but surviving, and now fighting a cold. Shame there was only the one pack 'cos I wanted at least one for you too! As you say, it was good to use other things I had around..........too many bits and bobs can go to waste. Will e ASAP.....atchcoooooo!!! Di xxx
