Betsy's Homemade Gifts

Hi everyone. It's Betsy's turn to blog -and I am her secretary! In fact, I am in Geraldine at a camping ground. We're camping with 8 other families and have just had a wonderful evening of marshmallows, fun, laughter and a few wild games of cards! So it's late - but I did promise to have the post done today...

Betsy has two projects to share - the Tissue box cover and a treat box.

The Tissue box cover has been made with a thick piece of cardstock covered with Tis the Season papers. The embellishments on the side are a mixture of Graphic 45 tags and randoms from Betsy's box of goodies!

Treat Box
Betsy tells me she stole the Treat Box template from Splitcasters - but she paid for the lollies!! It's easy to make up and looks really effective. I know you all want to buy the 6x6 Tis the Season pad she used to make this project - but Kaisercraft have SOLD OUT and won't be making any more...

On that note we'll share the cards that she originally made for the November Card Temptations kit with this same pad - but we had to change it to Candy Lane (available next week). But the goods news is, if you already have the 6x6 pad and are a subscriber to the Card Temptations Kit, then get in contact with us as we've made up the add-on pack so you can still make the cards :-)

Enjoy the rest of the weekend. I've got a stall at the Gerladine Arts and Plants Festival tomorrow and I know that Betsy will be selling her cards at the Quilting Area. Pop in and say hi if you're around!


  1. Lovely ideas for gifts Betsy and FANTASTIC cards too!
    Hope the weather is good in Geraldine. One of our weather stations on the vineyard peaked at 29 degrees yesterday and they were all over 25!

  2. Amazing work, your gift boxes are stunning, and your!

  3. Thanks for your comments girls. We have had a fabulous day here today, very hot just like yesterday. It was great for the festival, had a real carnival spirit. Liz seemed to be enjoying herself as well!

  4. Hehe! I spent most of the day chatting away to people! I know more people than I realised...
