More Christmas makes

Hi everyone, hope you are all well!

My girls all went back to school this week, my littlest Lacey is only 3 and looked sooo cute in her first uniform (i still cant believe they have to wear uniform at nursery ... she did love it though!).

So today i'm sharing some more samples I made for the lovely Nikky Hall and Polkadoodles which were shown on Create and Craft a couple of weeks ago.

They are more Christmas samples but now the nights are drawing in and the kids are back at school it really is getting close!

So here's what I did (warning i'm showing 2 projects so lots of pics)

The first project is an altered note book, i purchased these notebooks from poundland, they're hard backed and you get 8 in a pack all for £1 ... Bargain!

I covered my little book in delicious papers inside and out from the new Angelberry Christmas CDrom and then added ribbon as a fastener.

For the front I stamped the lovely tree from the Snowy Cottage Stamp set and coloured it in with my lovely Graph'it Markers, I added a die cut border and frame and then stickles to finish.

 Next up is a shaker card .... i havent made one of these in soooo long!

Again I used the papers and sentiment from the Angelberry Christmas CDrom and the Snowy Cottage Stamp set.  I also used my Graph'it markers to colour it up, I even managed to do a snowy background using the mixing fluid and a cocktail stick!

I had great fun making these .... they were a nice welcome change from my usual makes.

I hope you like them!
