Gift Bags

Hi Everyone

I bought  a load of plain brown paper carrier bags to use as gifts bags again this year.
I have used some of the Grosgrain ribbon along the top.
Recycled some of last years Christmas cards for the front and then stamped front and back with various Christmas stamps.


These three used some pieces of Advent Ribbon stuck on with material washi tape.



This is my way of recycling and not using non-recyclable wrapping paper.

Let it snow

Hi, Margreet here.
I have made a wintercard with the lovely new digi 'Snowman and birds' from Gerda Steiner Designs.
I started with embossing of the base card.
Then I printed the digi, colored it with copics and die cut with a square stiched die from Crealies.
I added some lovely, tiny trees (dies from Joy!crafts) and glued all on the base card.
For the final touch I adhered 'Let it snow' ribbon from Crafty Ribbons on cardstock and attached it with double sided tape.
Hope you like my card with the cute digi and great ribbon.
Have a great day!

Rainbow Wreath



















Hey everyone, hope you are well! I made a wreath with White grosgrain ribbon, Rainbow ribbon with a sentiment from Unicorn collection. Using the white really makes the rainbow ribbon and sentiment stand out! https://www.craftyribbons.com/stock_16mm_grosgrain_ribbon___white-797_86.aspx https://www.craftyribbons.com/stock_bling_velvet_ribbon___rainbow-3040_226.aspx

Winter wishes


I send you all my warmest winter wishes to you all. What best that a robin as messenger for it! I have heard of very powerful messages by it from Scotland.
It stayed a long time after my son made his demand and my very good friend thought it was his father in law who came to approuve it. I never saw him crying as he did when I told him this story. As a french girl, I didn't know about this embodiment. Now, I look for signs.


So I made this card for my children who married in september as a symbol of a long life walking along together.


The new robin collection ribbon was perfect for this special card.

Have you some stories about robin? I am ready to hear you.
