- Holly Toppers by Ross Slater-Finch and Sheet 11 from 12 Sumptuous Satin Backing Papers – Pretty Pastels by Emma Winnell (The holly toppers come in several sizes on the sheet, so can be used for lots of different cards and gift tags. This card was all straight cutting and punching a bit of holly detail with a Tonic punch – so nothing intricate to cut at all for this one.)
- This is a Get Well Soon card I made using an image and background from a Popcorn the Bear disk. It has a matching insert as well. Nothing difficult required to make this card either.
- A stretch bracelet made to give a family friend on her 18th birthday. Hope she likes it. I had my niece help choose the colours.
- This one is for my niece for Christmas. Again, I had my niece choose the beads she wanted and lay them out in a pattern she liked, so there’s no chance of me giving her something she doesn’t like.
