I have been very busy creating some wonderful Gifts for Christmas, Can you believe it will be here before we know it.

We all have lots of little gifts we need to give and I think these make wonderful little gifts for Grandparents and family. Mini albums are a wonderful way for family to share in what your children or loved ones have done throughout the year. A photo and special little message from the children makes this concertina album a special momento to treasure forever. Using the Jolly Holiday Designer Series Paper and co-ordinating the Delightful Decorations stamp set and Ornament Punch throughout the Album makes quick and elegant embellishments for your album.

The mini Calender has been made also using the Jolly Holiday DSP and Delightful Decorations Stamp set and Punch. These little Calenders make wonderful little gifts for teachers and friends. But are fantastic if you need to send a gift to family and friends Overseas. They are very light and can be sent as a letter. Using the Brand New Old Olive 1/8 " Taffeta Ribbon to this little Calender is very cute.

Thank you for visiting, Thank you for your wonderful comments and Feel free to visit again soon. You are now ready to continue your Hop by Hopping on over to the wonderful Leonie Schroder.

To make these wonderful Gift idea's and many more please contact me regarding the Upcoming Gift Idea Classes taking Place very soon.
