With all the fun decorations that can be bought nowadays, why not make your own cupcakes for the Christmas tree?


The Cupcake Wrapper and Poinsettia are BossKut dies, available from Bumblebee, or download directly from BossKut for your Gazelle. The cupcake is made of a Christmas bauble, covered with relief paste, the cherry is made of polymer clay and the chocolate icing is 3D-liner.

And one more, this for the table


For more inspiration on what to use the Gazelle for, check out the Bumblebee blog and forum!

… which means it’s perfectly OK to start with Christmas cards and decorations!

I started off with these two, a 3D snowflake and a Christmas Wreath



Both are made with the Gazelle, and finished in a flash!

There’s a lot to make with this lovely machine, if you want to read more about it go to Bumblebee for the Swedish version, and BossKut for the English one.

There’s a challenge at the Bumblebee blog, go check it out! Amazing things to win!

Not if you’re a scrapper! I still have photos from Christmas to work with, here are a few of them


I played around some with my Gazelle here, this was my first attempt at welding alphas – and it worked!


My last play with the Fiskars cutting system – the day after I made this layout I handed the cutter and all the templates over to my daughter, Jessica.


Back to the Gazelle! The paper embellishments are all made with it. The journaling is written on handmade paper from Svartvik.


Hey, no cuts? That’s right. I can still create without it, although it’s hard…


… so I dug deep in the jewelry supplies instead!


A felt border from a nearby store and a skeleton leaf from IKEA.


The alpha “buttons” are made of FIMO-clay, I added some Alco Inks to them and topped with stickers from Mrs Grossmans.


The glittery flower center is a PopUp dot from Glue Dots covered with Doodlebug Sugar Coating.


This felt border is from Panduro. I added some dots with Liquid Pearls to it.


Except for the Prima flowers, all paper embellishments are cut with the Gazelle. The Poinsettia is cut in gold cardstock and painted with Distress Inks.



This is an acrylic frame that got dressed up with some gold leaf and Alco Inks. I was very pleased with the result and will make more of those!
