Ink.Stamp.Share - November Blog Hop!


Welcome back to another Ink.Stamp.Share Blog Hop!    

If you have arrived here from Sue's blog, a very warm welcome to you! 

We are all making Christmas tree decorations today so come and have a hop around to see what everyone has made. I can't wait to hop round!

I have a super simple and quick project for you today! I was going to create something more elaborate for this hop but I changed my mind after I saw this idea. 

My friend Sasha Reade has an amazing YouTube channel and a week or two ago she released a video where her daughter Rosalie taught us how to make these tree decorations - you can check it out here. Well done Rosalie - great video and thanks for the inspiration ❤


All you need to do is cut 6 circles (you choose which size) and fold them in half. Then, very simply you glue each half circle to the next and then add a piece of ribbon or twine when you get to the last piece

I didn't want to use my Stampin' Up! twine as I am running a bit low so I used some silver twine I got with some baubles I recently purchased. Naturally, they were cut to the perfect length and I love that I was able to use them elsewhere.

This decoration is a great way to use up lots of scraps and perhaps the perfect project to make with young children? 

I used my 1 1/2" Circle Punch to punch out these circles from my scraps of Feels Like Frost DSP and have added them to my craft room tree - I bought this tree from Wilkos last year and I loved it so much it has stayed up all year round!


While I am here, I thought I'd share some more of my Christmas decorations. The reason I didn't use the silver twine on my baubles is because I have to use hooks as I have a pop up tree that doesn't actually have branches. 

This tree is great and doesn't take up too much space - although I do wish I had a tree with branches. 

Why do I have this tree then? Well, my cats don't climb this one and they also can't sit it in either - which they used to do when they destroyed my last tree, many years ago. Little monkeys!!


I created the 'JINGLE' word in 2009 when we moved into this house - I spray painted wooden letters in silver and added silver glitter. 

You may even recognise my wallpaper? It's the background I use for some of my photography. It's a brick design with silver glitter - thank you to my husband for agreeing to it when we redecorated 5 years ago. It's only on one wall and it was the first and only time I will ever put up wall paper - never again, I had 5 sockets to cut around and a gas pipe. 


I bought these fab window cling snowflakes from Amazon (link here). I am just waiting on another pack to do the back windows. The great thing is you can use them again and again!


I've put up mainly silver decorations this year. I usually add black and purple to match my living room and hall way but they have been relegated this year. 

I just love how everything twinkles when the Christmas lights are on. I am not a girly girl at all but for some reason I love sparkle, I'm like a magpie

Don't worry, our study and the bedrooms and my craft room upstairs are a bit more colourful! I do love sticking to one or two colours as that's just my style. Everyone is different and it would be boring if we were all the same. What colours are your Christmas decorations this year?  


Here is the wreath I decorated last week. The wreath is from Home Bargains and only cost £7.99. I added Christmas decorations I already had. The 'Peace' and 'Joy' I bought when I first moved out of my parents house when I was 20! Another 20 years on and I have found another way to display them - this makes me so happy!! 


Thank you so much for visiting my blog - I hope you enjoyed seeing my Christmas decorations and my simple project today!
