Piasknownica, Studio Challenges, Challenge Me Happy, Counterfeit Challenge, Get Creative

I know....
I should be sewing  (have a production in a week's time) and need time out.
Its been full on at work and taken on much more than I usually ever do.
Tonight is late, but have been scrapping here and there when I can manage it.
Time to upload....
I think its because scrapping Christmas is so motivating (to me) that getting more done is just coming so easily (big smile)
- a wool
- a price tag/label
- a button
- a star
Here's my label-tag.  I kept it because it had an 'M' on it...
for 'M'andy
or 'Meaghan'  - I 'm thinking its for Meaghan
I decided to use the label-tag as the main element

Here's another
Here's my attempt... this is a Christmas booklet - to add in my lists, things to remember etc...
Its already a busy little book with tags and reminders and even some ticks for 'done'!

November Sketch


Used a little 'HO!' Christmas stamp for the repetitive pattern with off-white paint.
This was a bit of fun putting it together along with a lovely memory of the girls unwrapping presents

LOVE this site.. I'm using ALL sorts of papers and embellies I had forgotten about.
This challenge (keeping in mind that there are no prizes or any competition in anyway.. just motivation to use your stash) is:
Stamp Inspiration: Pick ONE stamp (not the whole set) to inspire you and use on your project. You can use more than one stamp, but your inspiration one should be prominent.  Say which stamp and how it inspired you.
I've used an old favourite triangle stamp with paint onto bits of music paper and scraps - then cut out, inked the edges and stapled together to form Christmas Trees

What a fabulous sketch!

Oh wow, you've been getting some serious crafting done here. The tag and the naughty elves pages are my faves, but there is something to be gleaned from each project.
