Teachers Gift

I thought I would share this today as well. I've made 2 of these for my daughters school teacher. If you look closely you will see that I've cut the trees from my Christmas Ornaments file and adhered them around the bottom. Just another idea on how you could use these files.

The jar is a maccona coffee jar and the papers are by Kaiser craft

and this is whats inside the jar

Christmas Ornaments

I'm just taking a break from the pool side files for a couple of days because I thought I would share these files because they will be on That's Scrap Inc before the pool files.

I made theses files because I wanted to make some of my own Christmas decorations this year. Because I cant cut chipboard I have cut several layers in cardstock and glued them together to make them sturdier. I also flipped the file to make a backing for the ornaments which also allowed me to encase the string. These files could also be used to make beautiful Christmas cards.

Christmas Ornaments = $2.99

Now while the kids were happy sipping their lemonade by the pool (or at the swim up bar) mum was drinking something a little stronger. What can I say, the sun was out, the kids were having fun and it was cheaper to buy cocktails than a glass of wine. This file will be available separately or as part of a "Pool Side Bundle" This file would also make a ice addition to pages featuring a cocktail party or even invitations to an grown ups party.

Cocktail = $2.99

This is the first file I've made for a "Pool Side Bundle". When we were in Thailand we had 4 pools at the resort to choose from and seeing as my children are quite young we spent several hours a day lazing by the pool. Part of the pool side experience is lazing on the lounges and getting served drinks. I made this lemonade to represent what the kids were drinking because if I'm honest I was drinking something a little stronger (cocktail file is coming lol). This file could also be used with photos of a lemon tree, lemon harvest or a traditional lemonade stand. It could also be used on summer pages with a title like "cooling off" or "beating the summer heat"

Lemonade = $2.49

Stuff I've done / made

Before I start sharing the files I've made for my next bundle I thought I would share some of the other stuff I've been making. Firstly some layouts I've made using some of my older files.

This page uses my "Toothfairy" file that I made in 2007.

These pages are of my daughter at a scouts adventure day and I've used my "Scouting Fun" title.




As well as completing some layouts I've also been doing some altered projects. This is a Kaiser Craft advent calendar that I made for my children so that they can count down to Christmas without eating too many sweets.

This is another Kaiser project that will being hanging on my front door this year. I decided to break away from the traditional wreath and do something a little bit different this year.

Christmas Card File

I made this card file to be a freebie attached to the That's Scrap Inc newsletter. If you want this file make sure you pop over to That's Scrap Inc and subscribe to the newsletter. I wanted this file to be pretty enough to use as is but also adaptable enough that it could easily be embellished to make something truley beautiful.

A Family Tradition Title

Its that time of year when all the holidays are upon us and each family seems to have its own annual traditions. It doesn't matter if its the traditional family feast, how you hang the decorations or something as simple as Friday night Fish & Chips family traditions are what make memories and should definitely be scrapped.

A Family Tradition Title = $1.99

5 star accommodations, 5 star service

This is a layout I did using various photo's from around the resort we stayed in whilst in Thailand. I haven't included any photos of the pools or our room because they will be separate layouts. I've used the stars from my Decoratice Stars files and this layout was actually the reason i decided to make the stars in the first place.

Simple title ideas using stars

Here are some simple ideas on how you could incorporate the decorative stars into a title for your scrapbook pages. I will try and cut my title tomorrow so I can complete my pages and share them with you. I am also making a Christmas card with this file which I will also share.

Christmas door hanger

This is the first thing I've made using the Decorative Stars files. I made this as a gift for a friend and I will be giving it to her tomorrow and I hope she likes it. Because I have a craft robo and can't cut chipboard I cut the stars in cardstock 8 times and then glued them together to make them sturdier.

Decorative Stars

I've made these stars because I want to do a page on our hotel in Thailand and I itntend the title to be "5 star accomodations, 5 star service". When i had finished cutting these stars it also occured to me that they would be great for Christmas projects. As the week goes on I will show you lots of ideas for titles and projects using these stars.

Decorative Stars = $2.99
