12 Weeks of Christmas - Bonus Project

Narelle Fasulo - Independent Stampin' Up! Demonstrator


Welcome to our 2nd Bonus Project for the Latte Girls 12 Weeks of Christmas! 

Can you believe it’s Christmas next week? Hard to believe it’s come around so quick!

The lovely Leonie Schroder and Latte Girls fearless leader has made this wonderful project for us today.....but yesterday was a tough day for Sydney and even more for some like poor Leonie and her family..."My apologies for not getting this to you earlier today – I had a bit of a stressful morning with my daughter being on a trip to the Art Gallery of NSW today and that Siege happened in Martin Place and she wasn't replying to my messages and texts so it made for a rather stressful mum!  All is well and she’s home safe and sound – thank you Jesus! "

12 Days of Gift Giving - Day 11

Narelle Fasulo - Independent Stampin' Up! Demonstrator

It's the second last day of my Gift Giving Guide. Todays gift is all about co-ordination.

One of the things I hear a lot from people who are just being introduced to Stampin' Up! is that they love how everything co-ordinates. Many crafters who haven't used Stampin' Up!'s products are often frustrated when trying to find the perfect colour ink pad to go with the patterned paper they have, or the right colour ribbon to match the card stock colour they have chosen.

12 Weeks of Christmas - Week 11


Oh my Christmas is so close now. Isn't it exciting !! I hope you have all your preparations underway.
Narelle Fasulo - Independent Stampin' Up! DemonstratorAre you hosting Christmas Lunch and  looking for something special as your table centrepiece ?  How cool would it be to be able to tell everyone that YOU made the centrepiece they are all complimenting.  Then check this out.

Your very own Christmas Tree made out of paper.

This was so much fun to make. And really didn't take long either. I was going to do a completely different design tree, but suddenly this idea popped in my head. So who was I to argue.

12 Days of Gift Giving - Day 10


Today's gift is all about the making projects easy.

You know one thing I love about Stampin' Up! is that scattered throughout the catalogue they provide you with lists of what you need to make a project. So all the guess work is taken out for you.

One of my favourite projects is on page 104 of the Annual Catalogue. It features a stamp set that suits lots of occasions and the cards are super cute.

12 Days of Gift Giving - Day 7

Narelle Fasulo - Independent Stampin' Up! Demonstrator

Day 7 of my Gift Giving Guide today is about the tools that make paper crafting easier.

I am sure you have someone on your list who loves to make cards, or do other crafts, and they will tell you that there is always something out there they would love that just makes life easier. It may not be a necessity to have for their craft, but it would be nice. And don't we all put off buying those sorts of things for ourselves because there is always another member of the family who needs something more important.

12 Days of Gift Giving - Day 3


Day 3 Gift Giving is for the people who would love to make cards but just don't have a lot of time.

Let's make it easy for them and buy them a kit like the Everyday Occasions Kit.


Look at all the great cards you can make and everything you get in this kit. You even get a 7 piece all occasions stamp set. Now that is excellent value, and one I am sure any crafter on your Christmas Gift list would love.


Because it is the silly season, if you purchase this kit before Christmas Eve, I will give you for FREE a pack of Bakers Twine. 

This deal  isn't available in my online store, so you will have to email me if you want it - narelle@simplystampingwithnarelle.com Available till Christmas Eve, but if you want it for Christmas, make sure to order by Friday 12th December.

Thanks for dropping by.
Have a great day.
Cheers,
Narelle


December Daily - Day 2


Day 2 of my December Daily is about the traditions we have around putting up our Christmas Tree.

Narelle Fasulo - Independent Stampin' Up! Demonstrator

Unless the four of us are home we don't put the tree up. Everyone has to be home to help. This sometimes means that it doesn't always go up on the 1st of December. But we always put it up together. My teenage son does the least amount he can these days as apparently "it's just not cool" anymore...lol  My daughter on the other had is more than willing and I find myself having less to do as she wants to do it all.

Every year the children take turns in putting the angel on top of the tree.  And they each have a personalised bauble from their 1st Christmas that sits just below the Angel.

Another tradition we have is that we put on Christmas Carols and have them playing while we put up the tree. It's a little strange at times to hear carols referring to Winter Wonderland when its 35 degree celcius outside and the air conditioning is on, but we love them just the same. By the end of the tree there is always someone singing along to the carols in a loud and crazy way. But it's these little things that make Christmas preperation  lots of fun and makes Christmas so much more an experience for the children than just a day of receiving gifts.

I am loving using the Hello December Project Life Kit. The longest part of these pages is the printing of the photo. The Project Life style of doing a December Daily Journal is so quick and easy...love it.

If you want to start your own, these are the main products I am using.

Thanks for visiting and have a great day.
