Christmas Themed Samples as seen on TV :-)

 Helllooooo there, its 8.40 in the eve here and I'm just grabbing a few minutes of time off before starting another project that has a deadline of yesterday lol!!!  the first of the three collections to sell out on the shows over the weekend was the Twelve Days of Christmas so I thought I'd share a few of the samples I'd made for the set with you this eve.  

If you follow me you'll know I always turn to Sandra s fabulous templates when I'm lacking inspiration.  I redid the Christmas Sleigh that I'd first made with the Nutcracker Sweet collection and shared over a year ago.  It's still the most viewed post on my blog.  the baubles were made from left over paper.
The little Christmas tree below comes in kit form from Tando Creative Ltd.  I finally managed to catch up with Di at the Leigh Show and have a right old chin wag.  She has some fabulous altered items in her on line store if you haven't visited be lore. 
This is one of my new recipe box kits 
And lastly here are a few of the cards, some made during the demos.  The cute little cream tent card blanks came in a pack of 10 from Paula s shop, Whichcraftuk.co.uk.  They were a real joy to make and quite quick too.  Theres one or two of my own tent cards in there too :-)

I hope you enjoyed the samples, its off back to the workroom for me, so thanks for calling by and look forward to catching up again and sharing a few of the Come Away with Me samples with you over the next few days :-) C

  8. Good evening Clare, We've just returned to South Yorkshire after visiting the grandchildren down in Kent and having stupidly left my ipad at home was unable to keep up with your regular posts. Sadly I was unable to see your shows on C&C but am keeping my fingers crossed that I will be able to catch the repeats. Thanks for sharing your photos and all the wonderful samples. They are all fabulous. Thanks for sharing and take care.
