Tommy Kitten’s 1st Christmas – Simply Sketched Saturday Challenge

Thank you for joining us for another Simply Sketched Saturday Challenge! We’re so excited to be sharing this hop with you. The products used are all available in the current Annual, or seasonal, Stampin’ Up!® Catalogues. Simply use the buttons at the bottom of the post to keep hopping!


My initial thoughts were – I don’t have any oval thinlets! Then, after a little think, I dove into the cardboard recycling bin and rescued the oval shaped bit from a tissue box! I then chose my photo, marked out my oval and then trimmed it out.






I used the knitted stitch stamp from the Stitched With Cheer stamp set and then heat embossed it in white. I love how it gives the page a Nordic feel.

This is a layout of Tommy’s first Christmas. I was putting the branches on the tree and he was jumping around and trying to catch every branch that I picked up. Luckily, that was the most mischief he got up to – he didn’t try and climb it at all. Although out the corner of my eye I saw him tap a bauble and watch it swing.

Thank you for joining in with our blog hop today, next up is Fiona. Happy Saturday everyone!

Product List

Hostess Code Club – do you like free gifts?

All orders over £25 (before shipping & handling) & using this month’s Hostess Code at checkout will receive a Hostess Gift from me. If your order is over £150, please do not use this code – you can claim your own Stampin’ Rewards.
All online orders under £150 will collect Stampin’ Rewards (free product) throughout the month. Your order is processed as normal, with it being delivered to your house as usual, so nothing changes there. But, at the end of the month, I close off the code and work out how many people have placed orders and divide the total Stampin’ Rewards between them all, making sure that everyone has exactly the same products.

However, the more people who join the code, the higher the rewards go because everyone is pulling together!

This month’s code can be found at the top right of this page or on the home page
