A Simply Christmas giveaway!

Have you been following along with Simply Christmas over at the Shabby Art Boutique? I certainly have! The creative juices are on full throttle and I haven’t been able to get to sleep until the wee hours of the morning… because I’ve been way too excited!


Christmas is my favourite time of the year and a time when my mojo is at a peak, fuelled by thinking-up new gift ideas for loved ones.


Some years are trickier than others – but I find that my closest relatives always love to receive photographs of my family from the year that has been; and I make a point of printing some out each year to include with the other gifts.


So this year I decided to make bespoke albums, and I am delighted to be sharing a tutorial over at the Shabby Art Boutique so that (if you so wish) you can make one too! Just click here to view. :-)


Xmas bauble album finished


It’s time for a giveaway!


Just leave a comment on this post for a chance to win the actual album featured in the tutorial. All are welcome to enter – if you do not have a blog then please ensure you leave an email address so that I can contact you. The closing date is next Wednesday 22nd December at 11.00pm Melbourne-time.


NB THIS GIVEAWAY IS NOW CLOSED


A special thanks to the lovely Kerryanne for inviting me to be a part of her inspirational Yuletide journey!


Merry Christmas!!!


Hugs! Vikki xo :-)
