Christmas Handbags


How are you? Had a good week? Mine's been ok. Busy, busy, busy as usual. Where is the time going. There is only a few weeks 'till christmas. O.M.G. I haven't even been able to get started with prezzie buying.

You have been lucky if you have managed to escape the white stuff this week. We finally got a coating here in Leeds, which put the fear of you know what into me. I love the snow when i don't have to go out to work, it's the after effect i don't like.


On saturday i held a class for my ladies and the theme was a christmas party as it is the last one before the big day. We made handbags made out of the Jolly Holiday christmas papers.

Now these did go down well. They absolutley loved them so thanks for the idea Jules. To decorate we used the Delightful Decorations stampset. We also used Filigree Brads to join the handles on to the bag. I love these brads and they just finish off any project.

We made 4 cards to go into the bags which just fit perfectly.

These were made from the Contempo Christmas stampset for one and the Two Step Extra Large Bird Punch. The colour compo is Cherry Cobbler cardstock and Ink pad and Old Olive card stock. The ribbon on the robin card is the Real Red Satin Ribbon which finishes it off really nice.

These 2 are using the Delightfull Decorations baubles again and the tree is the Contempo Christmas again. Abit hard to tell but the baubles have got little gems and pearls on which are absolutley gorgeous.

Hope you likey. I'm off to get more course work out of the way and the dreaded chores too.lol.

Have a great week.
