The start of a new year comes always with a new calendar. And this year is not any different from the previous two when I made different calendars for my friends and myself.
But, unlike the previous two years when I tended to complicate things and make my little calendars 3D challenging ( from decorating twelve different pages to making easel card calendars), this time I  went completely simple by using a  sheet of A4 and simple scoring and folding on my embossing boards and Ultimate Pro.

For magic ingredients I used:

  • Brown cardstock
  • Ultimate Pro from CC
  • Urban stamps from DO crafts
  • Mirri card- gold
  • Some old inkpads for distressing
  • Cuttlebug
  • Darice embossing folder
  • Gold gems
  • Collal silicone glue.

Mince Pies

There is a lesson that I have learnt this year and it is not to make Christmas cards too early.  It cost me my mojo that disappeared in the late October.
To make anything turned into a struggle. Finally, after having felt guilty and uninspired, I managed to find my mojo.

It came back in a big style and I made this card for my 'other half' with lots of love.

The magical ingridients are:
  • Ultimatepro - Crafter's Companion
  • Spectrum Noir pens - Crafter's Companion
  • SWALK Winter Cheer stamp - I love mince pies
  • Some organza ribbon 
  • Centura Pearl card - Crafter's Companion
  • Papermaina Christmas paper 2010 from DO Crafts, and 
  • Lots of love and magic.
Merry Christmas everyone!!!!
