Christmas Bags ► VLVS!


 Hi, my friends, my last round for Christmas presents and cards.


Today I made bags for my friends and family, lots of bags. The bigger ones are plain paper bags, the smaller ones the Tim Holtz idea-ology Kraft Glassine pockets.

 I decided to go for a bit more elegance this year, so I chose to heat emboss in gold on black card stock. I used white ink to make sure my image was stamped correctly on the black background.

 I made a whole bunch of bags, I show you some in detail now.

With the flap open ...... 

Just to give you an impression when using different colors:


And here is a little something for the ones who forgot to makes cards at all and run out of time. This stamp is so easy, I have known the plate for quite some time, I never knew it was an image, that covered a whole card. So quick and easy and still beautiful!


I have used the following stamps:

Cheer Tree from plate 1370

Sentiment from plate 1363



267 Stick Tree

 It's A Merry Christmas from plate 1370

  A Merry Christmas to you all, have a great time, we will see each other in 2 weeks. 

Luv ya ♥

Happy Holidays ► VLVS


Hi my friends, this will be a very short posting since I’m pretty sick from getting a flu vaccination yesterday, too close to my last Corona vaccination.


I had already started with my Christmas bags and will show you one now instead of posting it later in November.

 I inked watercolor paper, and stamped the SHEET OF NEWS PRINT

and added the PINE BRANCH on the edges. After stamping my Christmas sentiment HAPPY HOLIDAYS, I matted it and adhered it to my panel.

 Ready is my little gift bag for Christmas …. One of them!


The versatile Sheet of News Print is from the new Plate 1529

Hello, my friends!

Are you as anxious to start with the Christmas Decoration as I am? I bought tons of new ornaments and stuff and now I have time to create all the boxes and bags I need for friends and family.


This time I used the following stamps:

 3766 Berry Background

1441 Sentiment

18847 Large Doily

 I stamped the beautiful Berry Background in different shades of Green and matted it. The love the doily stamp and used it for my ornaments. I also hat embossed my stamping. The Christmas Greeting finished the panel, which I adhered to my bag. Of course, this also makes a beautiful Christmas card.

 Have fun, my friends.

Have a wonderful time until Christmas with lots of time for crafting, see you soon ♥

  Hello my friends,

 more Christmas cards for friends and family. This time I used the cute Christmas Elf and masked the image after stamping. I stamped the Charred Wood Background on top and colored the elf with Faber Castell Pitt Artist Pens.

 I made the strings a bit longer to fit my card and added some loops. I adhered the panel to my card, ready to go

 I have used the following stamps:

 Have a wonderful time with lots of time for crafting, relaxing and hanging out with friends
