Hooo Loves Christmas?...........


Welcome to Day 2 of Annabelle Stamps September previews.  The blog hop starts at the ABS blog, if you've arrived from Teresa's blog you're on the right track.  Leave a comment at every stop to be eligible for the randomly drawn winner of today's set.

Today we feature Hooo Loves Christmas? 

I've a few things to show today so I'll get right to it.....a couple of Christmas sets and your cards, tags even wrapping paper can be organized well in advance of Christmas.

The wrapping paper here is a sheet of Butcher's paper  randomly stamped, some of the images have been coloured but not all. Add a label and some pretty ribbon and here's one Kris  Kringle done!

The card uses the same tree stamp decorated with ABS Sprinkles some Basic Grey DP ABS satin ribbon and a Christmas button.
The sentiment is from last year's set Holly Branch.



Here's another idea,  a Boxed Christmas Organizer (computer generated label  name). This box holds three notepads.

1.  Christmas Gift buying list ( a must have for me so I can remember what I bought last year!!!).
2.  Christmas Grocery list..... I can add to it on the run up to Christmas, so no last minute dash! (hopefully).
3.  Christmas card list, it changes a bit every year and I plan to up-date addresses etc. as they change.  I'm hoping this will mean I can get rid of a few old address books.

So, all together in one place, not too big so I can keep it in the stationary drawer.  Not a bad gift idea either!

Want to see the notepads?


I've kept them quite simple, but I love the little images.  I've used stamps from Santa's Star on these and even made a pocket on the front of the Cards pad to pop in some stamps.........Think I might buy a few at a time this year.......Overseas postage is horrendous!!!!




One last card to share......... I couldn't not stamp these adorable Owls could I? 
I thought I'd make a non traditional card ..... what do you think is this not the cutest image?
I've added ABS pearls here for a little bling.

OK I've held you up long enough it's time to move on to the next blog. I'm sure Ida is waiting for you with more inspiration to share.

I'll be back in a couple of days with the third and last set in the Annabelle September previews, hope to see you then..............

Wow, your variety of goodness is amazing. Your cards are outstanding but your gift wrap is what caught my eye and I so love this idea. I have done this in the past but never coloured in the image and I see now that it is much more vibrant if you do colour it in. Thanks for the inspiration.
