Its a good idea to keep a check on the All New Just In Pages , there is invariably some new goodies listed and it is a handy way to keep up to date with all things new and crafty !!

It is Lin's last week with us in the December Spotlight . Thank you so much for all your lovely creations over the last few weeks :-) XX

I organised a Christmas gift swap amongst the DT, we all had to make a little gift and add a few crafty bits and bobs for one person. All the names were put into a hat and I drew Dawny’s name to make for and Debby made for me, if you would like to see what I received pop over to Debby’s blog !! IT IS GORGEOUS Smile HUGE thanks Debby xxxx

Dawny, as you all know, has a beautiful Grandaughter, Kyla, and she will soon be joined by a baby brother or sister so I decided to make Dawny a brag book for her to pop photo’s of her little darlings into :-)

I got some mountboard ( free offcuts from a framer) and cut it to 6x6 inches and covered with a Kaiser Craft paper. I then made the central panel by stamping a Hero Arts Dots stamp with Colorbox White pigment ink and embossing with white embossing powder. I then inked with Dusty Concord, Broken China, Stormy Sky and Tea Dye distress inks. I used the Dusty Concord ink to colour the base card too. I used a MFT ‘Tag you’re It’ set to cut the tag and I stamped the dots using the white ink and powder and inked the edges with Stormy Sky DI. I punched a Martha Stewart Butterfly , inked and glittered with Star Dust Stickles and I added a few gems to create movement. I used a Lawn Fawn Harold’s ABC set and and various ribbons and twine and I used my Bind It All to finish.

I also made this little post it note holder, very quick and easy to make ! I used this very cute House MouseAmanda Writes stamp, coloured with Copics and the edges inked with Spun Sugar DI. The paper is from a Tim Holtz Vintage Shabby pack and I used a Sizzix Brackets die for the fancy border. I used Vintage Photo DI and some bias tape to finish.

Thanks for looking :-) Lin and the DT have all made some fabulous creations for your inspiration so please hop on over to the Simon Says Stamp Challenge to see them :-)

Wishing you all a Very Happy New Year :-)
