Scrapboxx Newsletter........

Free online class - Xmas Doodling layout with Leeann Pearce
Monday 15th December @ 7.00pm WA time and 9.00pm EST time

Click here to book your free spot SCRAPBOXX SHOP

How to:

Materials: Felt, Ribbon, Buttons, Cord, DMC thread, Stars, Holly Stamp, Paint

1: Cut 2 of each template, so you have a front and back.

2: Tie cord into loop and stitch to the back of the front.

3: Cut an extra circle out of white felt to make the icing.

Present Box: Machine stitch your cross on or hand stitch. Add your ribbon and button.

Then you can hand stitch the front and back together. Once you have finished stitching together use a pencil to stamp the spots.

Xmas pudding: Hand stitch the bottom icing first for detail and then add the buttons and holly leaves- add some detail to the leaves. Then you can stitch the front and back together. I also changed the color when stitching the icing and then red pudding.

Tree: Fold the trunk in half and slip between each felt piece. Now hand stitch together, when you get to the top add the star and just pierce another hole. Once you have finished stitching together use a pencil to stamp the spots.

Note: Make sure you add the cord to the back of the front piece. This way the back is nice and neat with just a boarder stitch all the way round.

There you go – all done…. Three cheers for you…. I hope you have fun and enjoy!

Happy Xmas Felting

A bit of a catch up before the new year hits me...

2007 Photo Shoot....My Sweet Storm

SHhh Santa can hear us...Now you might have seen this LO featured on the last page of SM vol 10 no 8... it did get me excited.. i then knew it was going to be in the next mag too.. so when i got SM vol 10 no 9 i looked everywhere for it in the mag...and the only spot it was in was the contents page... OK so i wonder what happened!!! well lets just say there wasn't a spot for it as the assigned gallery was full so they left it in the contents page...hmmmm!!! so now you know who it belongs too .... ME!!!!

Now onto my Master's stuff that I entered.....i didn't really want to put this up just yet as I really would have like to have seen the mag... i feel quite embarrassed about my entry now...after reading what everyone is saying in the forums.... but this is me..... sometimes I have good stuff and sometimes it's just OK... it's never OMG WOW!!!..... anyway i have a preggie brain and my emotions are all over the place.... i can't make sense of myself let alone everyone else!

Single LO... Hula Hoop... this is my all time favorite LO!
