Only three more sleeps ...........!

Hi everyone, are you ready for the big day? With only three more sleeps to go I'm finally in the swing of festive season.  Oli's turned the grand old age of 24, Harry's home from Uni and I've been decorating and doing an early spring clean before putting up the tree and decorations. Now the house is twinkling, and we're all ready for Santa to come down the chimney, well the wood burner flu actually lol!!! on Saturday eve.  
Today I'm sharing 2016 Christmas album, also on the Graphic 45 blog with a gorgeous card by Nico so do go take a look.  It was the fifth of the projects made from the St Nicholas collection I designed for us to make at November's Graphic 45 Retreat.  Packed full of detail there are four interactive pages and pull out mats, pockets and tags and lots of room for your festive photos.  The album can be made in or out of it's box cover. Here's a few more pics and the video of the full album too. There's also a PDF Tutorial to go with it is you'd like to make it yourself. 

Here's the link to the tutorial:  St Nicholas Album PDF Tutorial 

Ohhh look at the time, I'm Harry's alarm clock this morning so have to go wake him up, he's got a date on the golf course lol!!! I'm hoping to squeeze one more post in before the 25th but if things don't go to plan I hope you have a wonderful Christmas Day and look forward to catching up again soon :-) C

  6. Lovely as always Clare. I must admit I have not touched the St. Nicholas papers, just admiring them from afar!!! I will work with them in the coming months and have a project ready for the next Christmas season!! I am ready for Christmas but just want to do a bit of a dust and clean today. It is pouring rain and will do so for the next 3 days and then we are to have snow on Sunday, Christmas Day. I may be eating Christmas dinner by myself if that happens!! Merry Christmas Clare, thank you for all of your inspiration and friendship to me. Happy New Years!!!
    Love,

  7. Good evening Clare and can I say how much I love your latest project. Just fabulous. Like Judy in Arizona, I too have yet to use any of my St. Nicholas papers - in fact this year I have been using G45's A Christmas Carol, which was a sheer joy to use. I just wanted to take a quick moment to thank you for all the wonderful projects you have shared with us and your amazing inspiration. Reading your blog and making some of your projects has been so enjoyable and I can't wait to see what you have in store for us in 2017. I wish you, your family and all your regular blog fans the best possible Christmas and a Happy, Healthy and prosperous New Year. Take care and have a great time.
