Hi, here we are again, with a few last minute Christmas gift, and decoration ideas. Even if you dont have any more time left this year to create these, they are wonderful ideas, and well worth planning to do next year.

Firstly, Karola has made this wonderful Christmas wreath.
Karola shares her ideas for creating this wreath: I was tired of using traditional Christmas colours on my Christmas wreath’s, so, I decided to go with this unusual, but, I think, very effective colour combination. I chose Capri – Orchid and Lullaby- White flowers as well as kilometers of beige ribbon and a few die-cut elements which I cut out using my die-cutting machine and snowflake/ winter branch dies. I stuck everything using my hot glue gun and 3d foam tape on my small styrofoam wreath. To create a lighter, and more decorative look I also used big paper doily to create a kind of background for my wreath.

Nancy has this wonderful gift idea to share. She has created an adorable ‘Santa baby’ mini album. Nancy says: I have used a rectangular, wooden album, with the song lyrics of “Santa Baby” throughout the album. It ends with 10 extravagant wishes of my very own
Wouldnt this album make a cherished gift, for a Grandparent, or Aunt or Uncle, full of precious baby photos. Or, you could even leave the album blank, ready for the lucky recipient to add their own photos to it.

Karola, once again, blows us away with her amazing talent. This time with this wonderful ‘Christmas house’.
Heres what Karola has to say about creating her Christmas house ‘When I saw this small, wooden house, which was originally a key hanger, I decided to create a cute, Christmas house. I covered the house shape using patterned papers then went searching for just the right flowers to decorate it. It was an easy decision to make, the Glitter mini roses, in red, white and caramel were perfect. I also used a large white Lotus flower to create a focal point on the roof. The center of the flower I covered by small circle die-cut to give it contrast, then added a chipboard snowflake to the bottom to finish.’
