On Christmas Day....

My Santa gave to me:
A beautifully wrapped gift box containing a file folder containing.....
a huge selection of ephemera, clips, die cuts and embellishments.
I cannot tell you how much I love this gift. Every layout this year, I have been faffing around trying to find layering embellishments or tags or something themed to finish it all off. I don't think I am going to have that trouble next year!
This is a totally ideal gift for me and I just love it - thank you Santa and thank you for all my gorgeous pressies this advent :)
Merry Christmas everyone xx

My Santa gave to me:
An absolutely gorgeous burlap alphabet. I love the trend for natural textures in scrapping right now and this alphabet is fantastic as it is kraft coloured so goes with any layout. Thank you Santa xx

On the 13th and 14th Days of Christmas....

My Santa gave to me:
Gorgeous woodgrain cardstock and an Adornit alphabet. I saw this card online and really wanted some but it was always out of stock so I am thrilled to get some. It looks even nicer in real life and will be fab for Winter layouts. I love receiving alphabets too as I have given up on the 'handwriting on layouts' trend and gone back to legible alternatives instead. Thank you Santa :)

Advent Time - Yay!

It's that time of the year again and my advent swap parcel looks so festive. Thank you very much Santa Sandra for going to so much effort. It looks beautiful:
How cute is the little buckle? It works too and I am under strict instructions to reseal it each day to discourage poking and cheating :)

Day 1: I was very spoilt with ginger chocolates (my favourites), a stitch-able journalling sheet, white pen, very pretty advent calendar card and a sheet of real cork just the right thickness for die cutting. I've never seen these before and am going to love using it all - thank you Santa

Day 2: Gorgeously wrapped in kraft coloured tissue paper with snowflakes and a curly red Santa boot

Inside: Basic Grey Spice Market paper and a MME paper with frames all over the back that I already have plans for. I am loving my presents - thank you.
