Naughty or Nice?

Hi there everyone, Just a quick post sharing a layout using the wonderful Kasiercraft Christmas 
"Turtle Dove"
This is my daughter when she was 
2 and a bit years old.
Every year we would put up the Christmas tree and decorate it and I would dress my little girl in red and white, very christmassy.

To me, the joy of Christmas is seeing the delight of your children's faces when they see the
Christmas tree, the lights and the gifts.

Have you been naughty or nice ?

Turtle Dove paper collections from Kasiercraft

I created this layout with Christmas papers in June, I can't wait till Christmas is here. Less than 4 weeks to go.....  :) This layout also appears in the current issue of Australian Scrapbooking Ideas. So grab yourself a copy or better still buy a subscription for a Christmas present for yourself or for someone who loves to craft.

Have a great rest of the week.... I will be back on 
Thursday 29th November with a BLOG HOP with Manor House Creations and Imaginarium Designs, then

on FRIDAY  30th November at 5pm (Adelaide time),
 I will be joining in
the MEG'S GARDEN Blog hop

Hope you can join in on the fun, lots
of fun packs to giveaway.
Cheers Adriana XXX :)

BLOG HOP - Manor House & Imaginarium Designs

Imaginarium & Manor House Blog Hop!!!

Hello to you all and welcome to the Imaginarium Designs and Manor House Creations Blog Hop.

What a fabulous combination ... flowers and chipboard! 
Who can go wrong!!!

Over the next few days, our super talented Design Teams will be showcasing 
chipboard and flowers and let me tell you ... 
there are some INCREDIBLE creations on offer.

Let me tell you about Manor House ....

Manor House Creations was born in June 2011. The owners, seeing a need for a greater choice of flowers on the scrapbooking market, and having a desire to promote excellent product and efficient service, formed a new company. The focus at Manor House Creations is on providing quality, highly sort after products.

Manor House Creations blooms are diverse in size and design, and available in a multitude of colours. We spend considerable time with the factory managers, carefully choosing colours and adding our own personal touch to each flower design. Prints are selected exclusively for Manor House Flowers. With such a versatile range, we cater to both the avid scrapbooker and off-the-page crafter alike.

So would you like to check out some amazing creations?

Over the next 5 days, you need to visit these blogs below (everyday this week), leave a comment on their blog and on ID Blog
and then you'll go in the draw to 
win a great ID Prize Pack! 

Here is a sneeky peeky of my project which I will feature on my Blog on Thursday 29th November along with  Carole Maurin and Linda Langes.

so note it in your diary to visit the 
Manor House creations blog 
& ID Blog 
everyday this week.
Till then, Cheers Adriana XXX

Cover of UK magazine - "Simply Cards & Papercrafting"

Hi everyone
Just a very quick post today, hope you are all enjoying your weekend. :)
I was asked to create some Christmas cards for the UK magazine 
"Simply cards and Papercraft issue 104" this issue of the magazine is only available in the UK, unfortunately. 
Inside this magazine is a 6X6" Christmas paper stack of Kasiercraft christmas papers that you can use to create you very own christmas cards. Now if you live in Australia the "Australia Simply Cards" magazine issue 49 also has this paper stack for you to create christmas cards as well. My cards are only in the UK magazine, and one of them was on the cover on the magazine. So excited and delighted to see my card on the cover.

Here are the rest of my cards that I created for this publication. Using the paper stack and other Kasiercraft wooden products and embellishments.

Have a good week, I will be back tomorrow with some news on some Blog Hops that are happening this week. Take care everyone
Cheers Adriana XXX :)
