Rosette Christmas decoration

I made this cute little decoration with the off cuts from the Ruby Rock Christmas journal. I scored and folded a 12x2 strip of the Ruby Rock it paper using the Hougie board and made it into a rosette. I then used one of the borders from the Ruby Rock it Joyeux Noel borders set and some bakers twine to finish it off. All these products are available from the Fruit Pixie where I am proud to be their design elf!!

Gift card holder idea

I must admit it was M&S that gave me this idea and I know that the Woodware Cd Sleeve available from The Fruit Pixie would make the perfect base for this gift card holder. I also used a small coin envelope to hold the gift card. The paper and the lovely glittery angel came from the Ruby Rock it Joyeux Noel paper range also available from the Fruit Pixie.

Add a piece of card with your Christmas message on a piece of card inside the CD Sleeve and then pop your gift card inside the little envelope and your ready for the big day!!

Little altered Reindeer

When I saw this little wooden reindeer in Wilkinsons for £1 I just had to add him to my growing collection of reindeer's. He looked OK in white paint but I had plans for him. I used IndigoBlu Slap it On which is available from The Fruit Pixie, to apply the napkin from our Christmas crop at Bristol Scrappers. With a bell and piece of ribbon and some glitter gel for his antlers to finish him off.  For full instructions please look on the Fruit Pixie facebook page.

Ruby Rocket Christmas journal

I have had my Fruit Pixie designer elf hat  to make this Christmas Journal using the Ruby Rocket Joyeux Noel papers and a Kanban mini album. These papers are a dream to work with and gives you such a wonderful vintage look. The Fruit Pixie has everything you need to make this journal.

I added an envelope to the back cover to hold tags and bits and bobs.

                                                                      and then this to finish off.
