Jingle all the way...

This will definantly be hanging off my tree this year! I used the wreath ring from CCBox 5. I love how it turned out, only problem is I want to make loads now! Only one ring left... Hmm what colour shall I make that one???

All wrapped up!

Again using the German scraps from CCBox 5 but this time I added them to some of my Christmas wrapping! I tied up a few sticks of the cinnamon and glued them to the top to finish it off. (and smell great!)

He's coming...

I am really loving the German Christmas scraps from CCBox 5! I had this card done in minutes!

Edging scissors...

Here I used my edging scissors from CCBox 5 to create a few background layers. Edging scissors can be so useful for many different projects from cards to gift wrapping and even for painting your nails! (I shall be trying this over the weekend)

Festive Ribbon...

Love this little card I made using the ribbon from CCBox 5. I also used one of the little bells too!

Alice In Wonderland...

So... Stuck some Michael Jackson on my iPhone (could there be anyone more inspirational???) and opened up my CCBox5 and the first thing that caught my eye was the alice in wonderland postcard. I decided to make a card with it and I also used one of the cute little keys from box 4. I thought it was quite fitting with Alice in wonderland. Hope you like the result!

And a few pics in colour too...

CCBox 5.... Nostalgia

I have been really poorly this week so when I woke up and my Husband passed me a pink package I cheered up straight away! This months box is just right for the time of year. With just a hint of Christmas it is perfect. What I like most about this months box is you can see how the Crafty Creative team have listened to our views from the survey of what we would like in our boxes. I love that there is more paper craft items in this box and my son had already pinched the scissors!

So what's in this months box?
•Art card by Jo Askey
•CC Kit - this one actually terrifies me! But I shall give it a good go!
• Nostalgic printed fabric by Karen at Blueberry park
• 1.5m festive ribbon - I love this!
• Vintage style Alice in wonderland postcard
• Jingle bells! - my favourite item!
• 3 carousel pendants
• Mini tea cup and saucer
• 2 card layers
• 2 wreath rings
• Wooden girl and bunny
• Edging scissors
• Bunch of cinnamon sticks - perfect smell for Christmas!
• Sheet of Christmas scraps - I also love these! Would be great for decoupage?
