Last Classes for 2015

Hello, Crafters.

WOW! Where did 2015 go?

My classes today are the last classes for this year.

For the last three projects for 2015 I've chosen the spotlighting technique, the penguin with antlers and a gift box.

I decided on a gift box (photograph one)because one of my ladies is very keen to know, not only how to make them, but also how to work out the sizes needed for particular gifts.

I've chose a gift I need to put in a box and have written out the instructions on how I calculated the size for the lid and the box.

I kept the deign on the box quite simple for class but will probably add to it before I give it to the recipient.

I remade another spotlight card and again, amended it so it wouldn't take too long in class.

My classes are great social events and there's a lot of chatting, joking and laughing  - by me too! - that goes on that we often run over time.

I have to say out of all the variations I've made, this is my favourite!

I haven't made any changes to the penguin card I've already shared with you.

I went through the final batch of my Brussels swaps.

One I had somehow missed, two that I have since found out who the creators are and the others I'm still working on lidentifying the person I swapped with.

Tomorrow morning I'll be posting my swaps video, so do watch out for that.

Next week, I'm hoping to get back to doing my weekly challenges!

I'm not sure whether to carry on with Christmas or to start on new products?

Please let me know what you'd prefer. ☺

I hope you all have a great weekend and happy crafting.



  1. I am loving all your projects Jan and look forward to seeing new products as and when you are able to share them.

  2. Thanks, Christine. I'm really looking forward to playing with my new goodies! Happy crafting, JanB. ☺

  3. Hello Jan, can you please post the instructions on how to calculate the box size? Thank you and I want you to know I love your card designs.

  4. Hi, Poverty Masher. Many thanks for your kind words. As soon as I have produced an instruction sheet, I'll be happy to post it for everyone to be able to print off. If you'd like to email me your email address, I'll notify you when it's available. Happy crafting, JanB.
