Wrap it Christmas

Merry Christmas, Happy Holidays! Hope you all are enjoying the festive season. Following on from my handmade Christmas stationery I also made gift wrap using paints, rubber stamps and even a Spirograph! Gifts were decorated with handmade yarn and tinsel pom poms and clay ornament toppers.
Each year I like to choose a fun, bright colour scheme, so this year I went for gold with hints of neon pink and orange.
Ho! Ho! Ho! 

Christmas Stationery

Christmas is one of the most exciting and busiest times for crafting for me...and I'm sure many of you!
I have spent November and this month working on cheerful and colourful projects to decorate the tree, house and gift to loved ones. One of the first things for the holiday season I made was this little Xmas themed stationery set, that included a Gift tag, bookmark, mini notebook and card - all done with rubber stamps and colourful cardboard. By combining some of the rubber stamps together on a page, I created festive scenes and motifs.

As it begins to feel 'a lot like Christmas', I am thinking of and missing New York.

Celebrating and getting lost in its gorgeous winter wonderland. Here are a few of the things I love and miss most about being in New York this time of year.

 Very exciting news!! I did some styling for Swedish inspired, Australian stationery retailer Kikki-K recently. Using their wonderful Jul Christmas range of wrapping paper, cards and gift tags I created these gift wrapping and styling ideas. Even the packaging from some of their products were used, with a handmade pom pom included!!

Mt x Melbourne

Thanks to Notemaker the official Japanese Masking Tape company came to our Aussie shores recently for a pop-up space in Melbourne Central. Off-course I made a special trip from Sydney to check it out! I was in heaven looking at mt's new range, limited edition and special edition aussie themed tapes. Loved seeing the polka dot cardboard boxes and big rolls of washi tape hanging from the pop-up space walls - so used to seeing these in instagram snaps (#mtmaskingtape) at mt expos all over Japan and Singapore. How cute are the cubby houses? I want to have a go at making one!
