Playing Secret Santa - Traditional Christmas


Hello friends



Are you Santa to a person this year??



I'm playing SECRET SANTA - a person who gives a Christmas present to another anonymously as part of a gift exchange arrangement within a group.


I am one and this goes out to the child , It was decided to be something homemade and handmade so I went with Homemade cookies packed in decorated jar in christmas theme pattern paper and ribbon. I have decorated with ginger bread man on the lid and ginger bread woman to go along the tag with a heartfelt note . The tag is created using dress my craft tag punch and dress my craft border punch



The second gift is a handcrafted gift box that holds a tie for the Santa's Child. I have decorated the front of the gift box with a lovely greeting and ginger bread couple again to match with the jar !











Create your own personalized cards, gifts, and decorations to spread some festive cheer, just waiting to see the secret partners face light up seeing these handmade gifts....

Diwali 2019 Handmade cards

Hello friends ,


As the countdown for Diwali has begun and I have geared up to make Diwali cards to be sent out to friends and family.


For those who do not know about Diwali, or Deepavali, is the Hindu festival of lights, which is celebrated every autumn and One of the most popular festivals of Hinduism, Diwali symbolises the spiritual "victory of light over darkness, good over evil and knowledge over ignorance".


I have used old wedding invitations I dint feel like throwing away and converted them into lovely Diwali cards ! What say ? 


I have used card stocks 6x4 as the base and worked on with the scraps to create these beautiful cards. I have die cut the diyas and layered them along with sentiments . The diya die cut and sentiments are from Mudra stampa. I have even heat embossed the sentiments here.



I make sure I have loads of activities planned over the week for my kid as a Diwali tradition and you can read them all in the following blog posts HERE and HERE
That is all for today :)
