A Little Bit of Christmas .....


It's never too early to start on Christmas projects is it?!  It's Helen here to share a little gift wallet I've made.  It could be used for money or a gift card.

 I've used one of the cute images from the 'Festive Friends' Irresistible Images pack which you can find here on the website.  There's a great selection of these images on the website and they're perfect if you want to make a quick card or project.

Here's a side view of the wallet:


And speaking of Irresistible Images, there will be more great packs on sale on the next Little Claire Designs shows on Hochanda next week:


Don't forget to tune in!

We hope you managed to see our first HOCHANDA show...

...and if you did, we hope you enjoyed it.  Steve did so well (despite being very nervous) and good news - we have been asked back!
Monday 20 March - 2 shows in one day - 2pm and 5pm - hope you can watch it, we will have lots of NEW goodies for Steve to demo, we are so excited to show you our new products on the day.

Here's a second look at some of the demo's from the day (Steve didn't get to do them all):

This card was made with our Floral Border Outline Sticker and paper from our new Citrus Paper Pack and the card below was also made with papers from our Citrus Paper Pack and Vehicles Outline Sticker. 
Cards like these show you just what you can do with our Outline Stickers, so versatile and you wouldn't know that the image hasn't been stamped (great value too)


and this cute little piggie card is made with one of the piggie stamps from our new Piggies stamp set and the papers from our Cute Piggies Collection Toppers and Papers Pack



We've also had 2 of our cards featured in Crafts Beautiful magazine this month:

We had a fabulous day on Saturday...

...with a class in the morning and another (different class) in the afternoon! We all had a wonderful time, lots of fun, lots of chocolate and cake, lots of drinks and most importantly - lots of cards!
Here's a small selection of what we made, not everything by any means...

Look at this card above, would you believe that it is made using a sticker?  Made with our Outline Stickers, VW and papers from our new Citrus Paper Pack, this card design was a firm favourite...

and we made this with our Dinkie up, up and away stamp, love the little clouds and this:

with our 3D Butterfly stamp and here's our Dinkie Balancing Act card:

We can't show you anymore cards because we used lots of NEW stamps on Saturday and you will have to wait to see these! 
If you would like to receive one of our free postal newsletters which we are beginning to post out this week, just send you name and address to Gillian and we will add you to the list.

See our web for details of our next class and you can see Steve with lots of our goodies this Sunday, 27 November at Taunton, Junction 24 Market Way North Petherton Somerset, TA6 6DF

Is it cold enough...

ooh a bracing walk this morning with our two doggies; Buddy and Martha, definately hat, scarves and gloves weather, brrr...
Last week I posted pictures of two of our lovely £2.00 Christmas stamps because I suddenly felt all Christmassy (the C'mas tingle), it's still there, thanks to the cold, looking forward to putting up fairy lights soon - just the thing to brighten up the dark nights.
Here are two more great little stamps to warm your cockles...

Dinkies Row of Snowmen
Dinkies Row of Snowmen stamp, complete with text: 'in the meadow we can build a snowman', don't they look right at home stamped onto our 'Falling Snowflakes' background paper and our White Tags?
And here they are with our Christmas Jewels paper in the background - we love these little chaps, and, yes - just £2.00

And look - here's our Dinkies Bauble Scottie stamp:
Dinkies Bauble Scottie
The red background paper is from our Christmas Doodles paper pack and here is a photo of Buddy and Martha with their main man, Steve:

Martha is on the left (black and brown) and Buddy is on the right.

Show news - will we see you at the Sincerely Yours Papercraft Show at MAIDSTONE this Sunday 
13 November, it's at: Maidstone Leisure Centre Mote Road Maidstone Kent ME15 7RN 
10am - 3pm
OR
Sunday 27 November at TAUNTON Junction 24 Market Way North Petherton Somerset, TA6 6DF

Strangely feeling a little bit festive today...

Don't know what it is, might be the weather, heavy grey sky here (Wirral) and quite dark, but suddenly had a little Christmas tingle (do you ever get that, the Christmas 'feeling'?)

So I got looking through some of our Christmas designs and they did the trick, cheered me up on a dull day...SO, thought I would share with you too, feast your eyes upon a delightful selection:

Bauble Hedgehog stamp
We just LOVE our Bauble Hedgehog stamp, can I let you into a secret?  It wasn't supposed to be called 'Bauble Hedgehog' at all, should have been something like 'Christmas Tree Hedgehog' which is more appropriate given that there are no baubles in sight, don't know what happened, can only think that I was having a menopausal moment when naming it... lol

Here are the 'Bauble' Hedgehogs again, mounted onto our Christmas Doodles paper, a great pack comes in 2 sizes and lots of colours.

Nativity Scene
Here is our Dinkie Nativity Scene stamp, again another favourite (and aptly named this time!), the background paper is from our Christmas Jewels papers which come in a choice of colours and sizes and the blank card is our exclusive Elegant Edge cards and envs pack.


Was going to share more designs and ideas but this blog post is in danger of becoming too long (sorry about that) so I will come back another day with more lovely images to share with you.

If you like either of the stamps featured in this post you will be pleased to know that they are only £2.00 each, yep, we think that is so good and you can also find the papers and blank cards mentioned on our web here

Best wishes
