My sister and I went Christmas shopping yesterday. It's our special annual tradition and this year it felt as if we had got in there early: that is until, in one of our favourite shops, we were given Advent calendars. "You're going to need those tomorrow!" the girl said.
Of course! How could I have spent last week making pages with the beautiful December Gossamer Blue kits without registering just how close we are getting?
I made this one:
because I wanted to use the pompom hat card from the Life Pages kit. It's true. I can hear myself sounding more and more like my own mum, especially now that I'm doing a lot more knitting. "You need a hat! You should pull that down over your ears! You aren't going out without a coat! Let me hold this up against you to see if it's long enough yet.."
The little ink splash stamp is from last month's kit. I like a touch of black to hold everything down on the page and this is the perfect size. The woodgrain layering piece I cut from some Fancy Pants packaging.
Then I made this one:
I hope the close up gives a better view of the dimension..
Those are Pink Paislee rub ons underneath a couple of the diecut butterflies.
And finally I made this one:
Because Christmas tree embellishments aren't just for Christmas...
...and the pieces from Pink Paislee's Moonstruck collection have more than a little magic about them!
Maybe you remember how excited I was when we spotted what looked like the Hogwarts Express?
Next stop: recording my December Memories.
