Angel and hearts shaped soaps with a lovely scent of vanilla, offered in little handmade boxes are a special gift for anyone.
This little wool stocking is quick and easy to stitch up and looks perfect with Eline’s cute penguin from the ‘Snow Friends’ set. In the original image he was wearing a Santa hat which wouldn’t have shown up against my red stocking, so I simply swapped it for a bobble hat from one of the other images in the set. I love how easy it is to change elements around with digi stamps!

Little Stocking Filler could mean anything and for this month's project (as I seem to do quite frequently) I opted for a masculine theme, but what could I do? I thought 'mini-album' for a man, and as I had never made one before, I decided to try out a 'toilet roll' album which once you have the construction, you can go on to do a lot of things with it but it is all about technique, which I will explain as I go. I had recently ordered lots of Studio Light Industrial ephemera and backing papers (which are all double-sided and which are superb) and the Mini Book has so many fab images in it that I was very excited when everything arrived.
For our 'Teenage Christmas' theme this month I decided to make some cute Christmas Gift bags. You can squeeze loads of goodies into these gift bags - toiletries, chocolates, socks and more!
Mobile phone boxes with phone charms can be a fun way to send your Christmas wishes and include maybe a gift card or some pocket money in for the teenagers.
Stitch up this gorgeous hot water bottle cover as a perfect gift for any teenager (if you can bear to give it away!) using homemade pure wool felt. To prepare your own simply shrink a ‘hand wash only’ jumper by throwing it in the washing machine on a hot wash. I used a vintage Benetton cashmere number which looks and feels nothing short of luxurious!
