Remembrance Day - Stampin' Up style

After seeing a glittered up poppy on Helen's fab blog there was no way I was not going to have a go! After all I'm not called Glittermum for nothing!

I used the brilliant heat and stick powder from Stampin' Up, and some of the amazing ultra fine glitter too. I am rather proud of the results, and have to say that I have worn it all day today without too much glitter fall out! The heat and stick is absolutely the best way ever of attaching glitter. I'm making a couple more for some of my colleagues - now what else could I cover in glitter.......

Bah humbug!

These are blatantly CASEd from Helen's fabulous Fiddlefart Blog. I made some of these little sour cream containers for Halloween and I'm going to make 24 for a different advent countdown this year. These ones contain a couple of mint humbugs just for fun!

Another cute reindeer

Just thought you might like to say hello to another reindeer friend of mine! I make quite a few of these each Christmas and they are so simple but so effective. A bar of soap, a flannel and a couple of pipe cleaners - and that's it!

Stampin' Up! paper rosette wreath

I've seen lots of paper rosette wreaths around blogland so thought I'd have a go! I used some of last year's Stampin' Up! Christmas paper and some of the gorgeous stripy grosgrain ribbon. If you look closely there are some beautiful glimmer brads, tiny buttons and I even managed to use one of my extra precious filigree brads too! The rosettes are just so simple to make, and it's very relaxing creasing all those strips of paper! There are some fabulous You Tube tutorials if you fancy a go!
