What`s Cooking ???

I am now showing you the incredible Cooking Book by Tony,,,so directly from her blog: Ignacio over at Nicecrane Designs recently supplied the DT with a selection of cooking/baking images to link in with Thanksgiving. I didn't think I would get much use out of these as we don't celebrate Thanksgiving here in the UK - I was wrong...the images were perfect for this project.

I managed to complete the book and as you can see it contains plenty of pages...

...and I kept the colour scheme to white & burgundy for the base.
I still need to decorate the pages but as you can see...

...the Nicecrane images will fit this purpose beautifully.
The project tutorial came with a downloadable embellishment pack...

...which included recipe & note cards that can be printed 'page size'...

...or 'tag size'. There are also printables to help identify the different sections of the recipe book.
The pages in the book are a mix of flat pages...

...and ones with pockets - surprisingly I have started decorating the Christmas pages before the rest **giggle**
The coloured Thanksgiving images from Nicecrane were just perfect for decorating the covers...

...and by cropping this one to an oval shape...

...I've keep the wonderful image but managed to remove the Thanksgiving sentiment.
The Nicecrane sets that I have used are...

Don't forget to hop over to the Nicecrane blog for some super inspiration from the DT and whilst you are having a hop about - pop over to UK Scrappers to have a look at all the projects the Members & Sponsors are sharing in the run up to Christmas................................................................

Christmas Crackers, Xmas Balls & Kittens Images

So stunning Custom Christmas Crackers

What is a Christmas Cracker

A Christmas Cracker is a brightly coloured paper tube, twisted at both ends. A person pulls on each end of the cracker and when the cracker breaks, a small chemical strip goes “Pop” and the contents fall out.

A Christmas cracker traditionally contains a paper crown, a small gift and a joke written on a slip of paper. The gift in a cracker depends on how much you have paid for the cracker.The more you  pay the better the quality of the gift. A box of 12 crackers costing £10 could come with gifts such as a shoe horn, compact mirror, playing cards, screwdrivers, address book, tape measure, pad lock, bottle opener, tweezers, travel chess, photo frame and pen.

Directly from Jane`s Blog , you can learn to do your own Crackers: I have finally got my Christmas crackers made, with just one week to go before the Big Day. As my oldest blogging friends know I make my own crackers every year from scratch. A few years ago I wrote a tutorial, which if you would like to have a go, is here. Crackers are such a British tradition and I am surprised that lots of my blogging friends abroad have never seen them. They were invented by Tom Smith in England in 1847 and the firm still exists today and still makes the majority of Christmas Crackers sold every year.
I knew that I wanted to use my wonderful Vintage Santa images from Nicecrane Designs for this year's set. I also wanted to make this a GD post for Ignacio. They are just the perfect images to use...they are ready coloured sheets ACEO size but I reduced them on my computer. I used the Mega Vintage Santa set available here. They are available in single sheets but the set is a real bargain. I also wanted to use red and green crepe paper and found some tree design wrapping paper for the centre of the crackers.

People often ask me what I put inside; I can't give away any secrets from this year but in the past I have put in hand creams, lip balms, small handmade jewellery items, Lotto tickets, sweets etc. I also use a kitchen roll for the inside tubing as this is slightly fatter in diameter than toilet rolls and gives you more choice of the gifts which fit inside. The jokes always make me smile as I slip them inside with a paper hat and the banger.

So without further delay here are a selection of them;

Absolutely unique Crackers by Jane

as well as a few close up showing the wonderful Vintage Nicecrane images...

I stamped some LOTV Christmas tags onto red, green and Kraft card, which I added to each cracker

Horayyyyy for these amazing Crackers....

Xmas Ornaments, Cards, Tags (orking with my Pyramid Sheets)

Kelly,,,,,,did these abslutely adorable Christmas Ornaments working eith my "Christmas Ball Pyramid Style" and she also used my lates "Rounded Christmas Balls" .So directly frm her blog: Christmas is so very close and I have just begun to decorate a bit. I was so happy to find these easy handmade ornaments on Nicecrane designs. They are pyramid style and just cut and stack. The vintage style photo are perfect with my theme on this tiny tree this year.

See how cool they look and it was easy! After I made this one I cut out a frame from Spellbinders and attached some twine and hung it up, maybe 20 minutes of time.

I love the way it turns.

The next two are round. This one I attached a Frantaged poinsettia onto the twine for more festive appearance.

I see in this photo where my cutting skills are not perfect but see it still looks fabulous!

I was making my Nicecrane Designs ornaments while I was also making Poppyseed coffee cake. This is a old family recipe and my first try at it, not bad but the dough needs improvement.

Here is my small tree from my bedroom that I decorated with Mays gifts and the Nicecrane Designs ornaments I made.

Here is my burlap ribbon with sparkly sticks behind it. May wrapped my package with the heart and bell so I used it here.

And here are the sheets used,,,,,,enjoy them

Aren`t They so unique,,,,so adorable ones?

But That is not all,,,,,,
Vicky whas so creative idea:

Hello I'm back to share some little jars that I made this time with a great digi from Nicecrane Designs. I used one of the image from the great set below. You can just click on the image to get to the set!

So I printed the image twice and reverse the image for one of them so that the image is the same on both side. It also gives more strenght to it.

The jar is from the dollar store. I used a some shredded snow and a little Christmas tree all from the dollar store. I used my small circle from spellbinder to make the bottom to hold this little scene. The ribbon is from my stash.Here's a closer look at the digi that I fussy cut

I am falling in love with this cute, cute, cute idea Vicky, you are Rock.

A few simple Christmas gift tags

Directly from Kirsten`s blog , you can enjoy their stunning Tags:It is getting closer to Christmas. A lot of the Christmas presents are waiting to be wrapped an labelled. So this time, I made a few simple, last minute present tags.

All the motives are from Nicecrane.

I have used 3D foam under all the layers on the tags.

The template for the Poinsettia is free from Bird Cards. The flower and the diecut leaves are distressed with gesso.

The spruce twig is a Silhouette file.
