I am running around gathering fruit up at the moment. Some of you may remember that we moved house just on Christmas last year. We inherited a lovely garden with lots of fabulous plants and some fruit trees in it: two apple trees, a plum tree and some black-currants. Well the birds have eaten most of the black-currants before we got a chance to pick them so I suspect there will be some netting going up next year! But the plums and the apples!!!! Wow!!! there are so many!!! I picked the first lot of plums last week and we had plum crumble for tea, but there were so many, I took some to both my neighbours, made another crumble and then two pots of plum jam!
Now it has been a few years since I last made jam….we wont speculate how many suffice to say it is definitely more than thirty!!! still, I thought, it would be a dreadful shame for all this fruit to go to waste, so I made 10 pots of apple jam/sauce too!!! and this weekend? We are making apple chutney. It is very exciting, we bought this huge big jam pan, thermometer and jar grabber thingummy – for get the sterile jars out of the hot water! This years Christmas gifts will mostly contain chutney and cheese – so sorry to spoil the surprise if you are normally on my present list!!!

This first project samples the beautiful Winter Frost Designer Series Paper which features 2 Foil accented papers to compliment the 5 doubles sided papers – 12 sheets in the pack. Also featured is the foil sheets and here I used the Postage Stamp Punch to create a backdrop for my paper samples to sit on.
In this picture you get a closer look at the fabulous and glamourous Frosted Finishes Embellishments – these can be found in the new autumn Winter Catalogue. Next Up, and still using the Winter Frost Papers we are making this super basket – I found this on Pinterest and the original is made by this lady here A Big Thank goes to Wenche for an amazing design …very Frosty colours here – Can you tell I adore this paper?
Just one picture for this as a bit of a sneak peak but you are getting lots of ‘things to do’ with this item and this project uses the new colours Bermuda bay and Coastal Cabana as well as Coastal Cabana silver Ribbon (also in the new catty!!).
And lastly…..this next item I have CASE’d from here, a big Thank You to Tammy Tobac for a fabulous design, I adored this lovely design as soon as I saw and thought I would try and make it in the new papers and colours – I am also going to do it in the Red and Greens as I just think it is lovely! This one uses the Bubbling Brown Sugar card-stock, Winter Frost DSP, The Petite Pennants Builder punch, The Warmth and Wonder Stamp set which is a Hostess set (see above where you could be the NEWEST Stampin Up Hostess, right from the comfort of your armchair!!!)) And the Window Frames Collection frame-lits – I totally love the frame-lits – didn’t think I would but I use them all the time now, they are versatile and can cover a multitude of sins!!!!
I am so pleased with this months projects – I really enjoyed making them and photographing them. I suspect the flying Christmas trees card will end up being one of my main card makes for this Christmas in both colour ways so once it is made in the Red and Greens I will share it with you….
Okay Ladies…Until next time, remember to stamp your place in the world! xxxx
