Jan; Santa's little helper

At this thime of the year Santa needs all the help he can get and so do we! So this sheet of elves will be very useful for all those cards and projects you still have to do!

I have used the jack in the box  stamp on this lovely little plaque. If you were lucky enough to get those Echo Park papers before they flew of the shelves they are ideal for this project. I don't have any copics/promarkers either but I have used my trusty distress inks (which are in the shop) and a water brush to colour in the image. The Merry Christmas banner is one of my favourite stamp set from Purple Onion.
Finally a project isn't a Christmas one without a bit of bling and I have used stickles.

So why don't you pop over to the shop and see what you can find to make a Christmas project or two.

Going Skiing.......

One stamp............... Same style .......

but two different looks.............
I'm not a great 'colourer inner' ( I don't have the time, patience or the Copics) but these stamps are easy to do... just a few colours and they're all set to go...

You can find this little chap here

Hope you like him

Julie: Purple Onion 'Antique Ledger' set.

Hi all.

I don't know about you, but I love to use office supplies in my crafty projects.

Give me a manila envelope, some graph paper and a few paperclips and I'm as happy as a pig in a stationary shop ... or something like that ... you know what I mean! And it's why I love this 'Anitque Ledger Background' stamp set by Purple Onion, which you can find in the 3DJean shop here:

While the lined background is ideal for journaling on to, it can also add a hint of office-y loveliness to plainer papers. Here, behind the photographs, I stamped its lines over a lightly patterned paper:

Included in the same set is a selection of really useful words and numbers that can be used as stand alone stamps - even without the lined ledger background.

Here I've used the 'Quantity' and individual number stamps to record how many crafting friends I went away with on a retreat recently:

And on each page I've used the 'Name' stamp to record exactly who those people were! Not that I'm likely to forget ... but it does add something to the page:

Finally I used the 'Date' and 'Description' stamps to add a few extra details to the back of my mini 'facebook': If after ogling the 'Antique Ledger' set you feel like indulging your own office-supply urges, you might also like ...

The Purple Onion 'Vintage PostMark Dates':
... or the more contemporary Purple Onion 'Date Me' set: ... and the Lost Coast Designs' 'Shopping List': All of which will come in useful for festive projects this season too!

Remember you're welcome to give us all a prod whenever you use a product you bought from 3DJean, that way we can hop over to your place and 'ooooh' and 'aaaaaahh' over your work. And we like doing that ... in fact the whole Scattered Scarlet design team spent the whole weekend doing just that with each other ... and I have my little book above to record it!

Right then, you get crafting and I'll see you very soon.

Jan; Say Cheese

I think I've said this before but I love those Webste'rs pages. This one is from Hollywood Vogue and WonderFall collection combo pack. I'd like to know who thinks of the names for these collections they're great.

These papers are a godsend when you need a quick card as the background is done for you. Even better when you need a card for that trickiest of themes .....Men! All I've done is stamped the cameraman image and it was ready.

So if you need a quick fix pop over to the shop and check out these papers they won't be there long
