a stocking full of sweeties


These are the gifts I made for my 2nd level downlines - they are part of my team but I didn't personally recruit them. It was fun to use this new die - next year I hope to have a play around with it to see what I can do with it other than the obvious! lol The top I embossed with Fancy Fan embossing folder, the stamp set is Bells and Boughs which I coloured with markers. The stockings themselves are Gumball Green Co-ordination card stock - I love the texture of that card!! I used multi purpose glue to join the sides together, you could easily sew around for another look. Each stocking has a few candy canes and other Christmas lollies.

Special Christmas boxes for my wonderful team!


These are the gifts I made for my direct downline for Christmas. The boxes started off as the plain 31/2" square ones we sell (124106 Kraft Gift Boxes $NZ5.95 for 4-page 161) and then I cut them in half, added some acetate and and then decorated it up. I filled it with some lovely bits and finished it with a big bow!! The colours I used are Cherry Cobbler and Gumball Green.

 Each of my direct downlines received one of these (Angela your's is still on it's way!!!). I made special gifts for other downlines too (these are wonderful and talented ladies that my downline have recruited) so I will show you those tomorrow.

Happy Birthday Leanne!!

today I went and had a fabulous lunch today with a friend who's turning the big 40 on Saturday. This is the card I made for her. I used a doily background stamp and clear embossed it. I then sponged it and it created the background. I hand cut the doily at the top just to add some shape.
Again it had to be 'purple' cause for Leanne there is no other colour! lol
She is off to Australia for her birthday - not a bad idea!!! have fun!!

Gift Voucher Holder


This is the card I made for a gift voucher - inside was the voucher and this is the holder/card for it. I knew who this was going to and her favourite colour is PURPLE so I used the three different purples Stampin' Up! currently have - Elegant Eggplant, Perfectly Plum and Wisteria Wonder. I used lots of layers, textures and stamping - which you can see from the below picture.

I can make gift vouchers for any amount and will always make a card like this to hold them in - unless you needed ASAP! lol  - These make AWESOME gift options for Christmas, birthdays, anniversaries, or any celebration where you want the perfect gift - any crafter would LOVE it!!!
email me at julia.leece@vodafone.co.nz -only available for New Zealand residents.

Proud mamma time


now this so isn't paper crafting either but I wanted/needed to share our amazing day yesterday. Our kids attended a new concept school that goes from year 7 to year 10 (form 1 to form 4) and yesterday was the final day. In the morning there was senior (year 9 & 10) prizegiving and as you can see from the pic above our daughter did pretty well! The HUGE cup in the middle is the supreme school award and we are so so SO PROUD of our daughter Kelly on receiving it!! She was going up and down the stage all morning.

The awards were:
 she got: Outstanding Achievement in Science (top 4 in subject year 10), Outstanding Achievement in English (top 4 in subject year 10) .

My husband and I got taken up to the stage too and Kelly presented us the lovely flowers you see above! 
SO the day ended with graduation as they will now move on to Senior High where our son just graduated from. This is a picture of my beautiful daughter all scrubbed up for the graduation. She looked amazing - I am bias! We went with her and we had a lovely dinner followed by the graduation ceremony and then the kids had a dance party while the adults went home but I had to go back after midnight to collect some dancing queens and bring home. I finally got to bed at 1am this morning - and needless to say I am pretty much shattered today!
thanks for taking the time to read how proud we are of our amazing daughter!

candy cane hearts


YES this isn't exactly paper crafting but it's still creative! lol Yesterday I made these using candy canes - I got the idea off that wonderful site PINTEREST - click HERE to go to the link
I did plain ones with dark chocolate as above and also some with white chocolate and some using fruit flavoured ones for son who doesn't like peppermint. I am still to find some non artificial colouring ones for daughter - as I used the mini ones. BTW I LOVE Christmas time! lol

Happy Birthday Lisette


Today is my son's lovely girlfriends 18th birthday (yes he's going out with a 'older woman' LOL - by all of 5 months! hee hee). I knew I wanted to use the elephant with the hat stamp cause Lisette love's things like that but wasn't sure how I could use it as the made feature on a card. But by using the framelits I was able to make a cute window for the '18th' and also for actual card itself. One tip for getting a card like this to stand up - without rocking over to one side 'cause of the 'point' at the front middle bottom - is to trim the 'pointy bit' off on the back piece, that way it can rest on it on the front. Easy peasy!
so happy 18th Lisette!!

Happy Birthday Yvonne

Today I am seeing my girlfriend for her birthday which was on Tuesday. This is the card I made for her. Her present is wrapped in a lovely pink paper so I thought I would match the card to it. I love the simplicity of it - just two colours and two stamps. The new style ink pads are FABULOUS for doing solid style stamps like this - of cause our Whisper White card stock makes for a wonderful stamping surface for them too!! The colour is Melon Mambo and is a great contrast with the White.
Have more birthday cards to share over the next few days - these people with birthday's during the festive season deserve LOTS of attention as I'm sure they suffer from peoples Christmas stress!!!

Inverted Frame Card tutorial


This is a card I made for my lovely upline Jacque's wedding. I wasn't able to make the event but sent Jacque and Rob this card. Like I said yesterday I'm not a big user of blues but thought I would challenge myself. The 'inside' parts that were cut out I used on yesterdays card. The below is a quick tutorial on how I did the hearts.


start with your choice of card - I used Night of Navy, Midnight Muse, Marina Mist and Bashful Blue.


cut them all to the same size - mine were 10cm x 14.3cm and hold them together with a post it note.


work out where you want your dies placed - try to center them BETTER than I did! hehe


Hold them all in place with more post it notes


cut thru you Big Shot - you will need to adjust the 'platforms' as it is thicker than a normal framelit die - I took the second tab off and then loaded the underneath with some shims to get it right.


as you can see it doesn't actually cut thru all layers but it marks it so you know where you need to do the dies to ensure they line up.


now go thru and cut each on - starting with the lightest with the biggest heart and work your way thru all layers. The dies will 'pop' into the grove quite well but still hold it in place with a post it note.


You will end up with a positive and negative at the end - and this is what I used for BOTH cards. 


I love the look of what they create.
 Thanks for visiting today :)

Christmas Tree Time!!!!

 It's a family tradition in our family to put up our Christmas tree on the 1st December so yesterday I put it up - along with a few others! hehe I think I got a bit carried away! This is first one is an 8 foot tree, I made the tree skirt earlier in the year (September) for the New Zealand Stampin' Up! Heartfelt events. This isn't the best photo - it doesn't show how the lights or the depth of the tree but you get the idea - I love the red and white combo.
 This 4 foot tree that's in our entrance way. It's all gold and looks lovely with the angel on top.

 this 3 foot tree is our 'Ford' tree! hehe My husband LOVES his Fords so I made this one just for him!! Complete with Ford decos!
 This is our front door - a simple wreath this year - the big bow is all sparkly along with the red decorations
This little 2 foot tree is in my daughters room - decorated in the colours of her bedspread. It's so sweet! lol I have deers, angels and other Christmas decos through out the house - it really feels like CHRISTMAS now!!!
