Crafty Christmas!! Day 3

Crafty Christmas!! Day 3

Hey Sweetpeas!!!

One thing I absolutely love doing is making Christmas cards, so I also love buying all the crafty bits and bobs needed for making cards!

Yesterday after exams I went to town and bought a whole lot of Christmas themed decorations for Christmas cards, gifts, and decorations! It was honestly a crafty-persons paradise πŸ˜‰

So this is what I bought:

  • a wee pack of sparkly doves, that I thought looked so cute and Christmassy!! πŸ˜‰
  • a pack of red ribbon for wrapping up gifts, and for cards, or bunting
  • lots of stamps! one pack were clear ones that included stockings and fairy lights which I thought would look super cute on a card!! the other pack came in a jar – which instantly won me over – and contains lots of Christmassy decorations and phrases!! πŸ˜€
  • Christmas paper – I got lots of gold and white patterned paper which I thought was very versatile for Christmas! πŸ™‚

Now that I have these additions I hope to do a post on using these for bunting, cards and decorating! πŸ™‚

I hope you’re all having a great day!
