|Stampin' Up! Creatively Yours|
There's nothing nicer than a handmade gift, so I found time a few weeks ago to make some mincemeat with a little twist taught to by my grandmother. I put it in jars and have decorated them very simply using my Stampin' Up! Creatively Yours stamp set, decorative label punch and one of my favourite designer series paper packs polka dot parade which is basically spotty papers in some of the brights colours. I used my new Stampin' Up! trimmer which you can read about in my stampingscene post. I also added some bells which I bought from Marks and Spencer onto some gumball green and whisper white sweater trim. Now the trim just has to be touched to really appreciate its value. It's very tactile and now I've made the mistake of a)buying some, b) using it I'll just have to get more before it goes offline at the end of January 2013. So far my mincemeat gifts have gone down well and I'm beginning to wish I made more. As ever I'll be more organised next year!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
