Christmas Decorations

Hi everyone,

I had a play last week with my new Ornament Keepsakes dies and stamp set. I have been loving the work some of our demonstrators have done on the ornament, so I found the instructions to make the gorgeous ornament on the front of our Holiday Catalogue, but I decided to omit the linen thread from it.  I wanted to try another colour and as I've always loved blue, decided to try a more simple adaptation. They take a little time, but I'm sure you'd agree, they are so lovely.


I always decorate my living room on 1 December but as I had a technique class last week, thought it would be nice to have it spruced up for the ladies. I made them up little gift bottles of chocolates, along with afternoon tea. Following the class I then drove up to help my son and his wife move homes! I was there with them for 3 days and then came home totally pooped; so was very pleased I'd decorated prior to my departure.

Till next time,


  1. Suze, these are just gorgeous (as all your creations are!) What a blessing to those kids of yours you are. Helping to move house is way above and beyond the call of duty!

    1. Thanks heaps girls. Loved making them. Have a class tomorrow with 6 ladies to make one each.

  2. Beautiful Sue, love the blue ornament, very smart indeed!
