Cottage Christmas Gift Tags

A quick share of a few gift tags I have created using my Imaginisce 'Cottage Christmas' DT kit from Handmade By Suzanne. I was really pleased with how these came out, they will be perfect for putting the finishing touch on a few special gifts this year. Besides the Imaginisce pps, I also used Green Tara flowers & paper string, Prima lace, satin ribbon and Thickers...all available at Handmade By Suzanne!

HBS MASSIVE Thickers Sale!!!

If you are anything like me and LOVE your Thickers, then you better pop over to Handmade By Suzanne for this week's SUPER SPECIAL. For this week only until Friday 26th November (or while stocks last) ALL Thickers have been reduced to only $5.75!!! (That's a HUGE saving of between 20-30% off!) But you better get in quick before they all sell out!!!

Some more 'Cottage Christmas'...

Here is yet another LO I have created using the 'Cottage Christmas' collection from Imaginisce I received from Handmade By Suzanne. This LO was done for the SBT50 "Life As We Know It" CC. (And yes, challenges are still open until 21st Nov!) This was for Anthea's "Remember..." Challenge, where you had to scrap a photo that invoked fond memories of the past, that was not 6x4, and include the word 'remember'. As Christmas is fast approaching, I have been thinking about how quickly time has flown since Brielle's first Christmas almost 2 years ago. This year promises to be quite exciting for her as she is actually starting to grasp the concepts of what Christmas and Santa are all about.
Here is my LO...

Besides the gorgeous Imaginisce pps, I have also used My Mind's Eye 'I Believe' brads, Green Tara flowers (including my favourite mini ones) and paper string, Prima lace, AC 'Patchwork' Thickers (again, another of my faves), 'Jazz Blue' glimmermist; and 'Sea Mist' satin ribbon. I love using this Christmas colour combo, replacing the traditional green with a soft blue - I think it suits our climate much better! :-)

PS - How do you like my makeover???

HBS November Sketch Challenge!

This month's sketch challenge for Handmade By Suzanne has been designed by the very talented (and our Nov guest DT), Melinda Spinks. Melinda is on the Imaginisce and Pebbles DTs and has had a number of guest spots with other manufacturers, so it is great that she could join us at HBS this month. Be sure to enter the November sketch challenge by the end of the month and you could win yourself a voucher to spend in store! (And with a constant flow of gorgeous new products to choose from, you will have no trouble spending it either!)
Here is my take on Melinda's sketch (yes, it was time to get my paint out again! LOL)...

I used the super cute 'Cottage Christmas' collection from Imaginisce for this LO, along with some stunning My Minds Eye 'I Believe' brads, Green Tara flowers and paper string (awesome stuff, you really MUST get yourself some), and of course everything is available from my favourite store - Handmade by Suzanne. ;-)

Stuck?! Sketches November LO!

Once again I have decided to play along at Stuck?! Sketches this month using the 1st November sketch by Sara. I decided I had to use my new DT kit from Handmade By Suzanne for this sketch, which just happened to be a Christmas kit featuring the Imaginisce "Cottage Christmas" cute! Here is my take on the sketch...

All the Handmade by Suzanne DT girls have gone Christmas this month, so be sure to stop by the HBS gallery to see their gorgeous work. :-)

In a little bit of extra news, unfortunately I have had to remove one of my LOs from here & the HBS gallery as SM have picked it up for publication...YAY!
