Christmas cards

So there has been basically no activity on this blog for months, and does that reflect how much card making I have been doing??? Sadly, the answer is pretty much. The only cards I have been making are the ones at the monthly workshops, and I have even missed the last two of those.

However, a couple of weekends ago, I suddenly starting making things again! Strange but true. Some of the photos are average, but you get the idea I am sure! Then today, a friend from the US wanted to see what I have been making, and so I posted them here! Then tonight, I was thinking,...I really should do a proper post, so here we are!

This card is a tri-fold card. All the way through making it I was unconvinced at how it would work out, but once I put it all together, I loved it, and now have made 3 in this colour, 3 in green, and will be making more to send out to people!

This one was just an idea I wanted to try with stripes of glitter. I have to say that I was pretty pleased with the way it worked out, but I think that if I make it again I will put the white card with the stripes on against a different colour card or something.

This was another messing around one, and in the end I was quite pleased with how it worked out, but it was a pain in the butt sticking all those little HO's on there!

I really like this one, and am probably going to make more of them. I also made one with 5 stars too. The fact that both the paper and the card are shimmery doesn't really show up, but IRL you can see it.

These two were made using the offcuts of the stars for the card above. The funny think is I was showing a girl at work and she loved them! Didn't have the heart to tell her that they literally took a couple of minutes to do!

Because I have actually been playing around, I do have a few more ideas, but we will see how we go in terms of actually putting them all together!

In the next couple of days I will post the cards that we were doing at the workshops.


  1. fun to see some cards that you make. I also post cards occasionally on my blog, and like to read.

  2. Hi Clair

    Thanks for dropping by! I also have a book blog that I update much more regularly than this one at

  3. hello i would like to ask you how to turn the rss on, on the blog ??
    because we are quite news on this and still look for our way around !!!
    thank you

  4. If you go to your Dashboard and choose the tab called either Template or Layout, then one of the options should be called Feeds, and you want to turn that onto Full.

  5. I just came across your reading and card-making blogs and will definitely be checking back on both. I have to laugh since I just posted recently on my own blog about the '12-hour Card-Making Extravaganza' that my sister and I hosted...
