Anything but a card!


Can I have a moan please:  I hate the new style blogger.  It is taking me absolutely hours trying to figure out just the basics, it is really putting me off coming on here.  If it doesn't get much better very soon then Im not sure Im going to carry on with my blog as it is just awful.
Sorry about that but thanks for letting me vent!

This time over at our little Christmas Card Club is was the turn of our Clare to chose our fate and she chose 'Anything but a Card', I'm sure I wasn't alone in thinking what on earth am I going to do!  My cherished Silhouette came to my rescue and I made these:

little Xmas favour boxes for the table!  I used some real proper 12" papers too so I am very pleased - some of you may know I can't bring myself to cut into these very often but as it wasn't me cutting it but the Silhouette, I was happy!  If you'd like to see what the rest of the team came up with just click on their names in my sidebar!

Thanks for calling by,
Keryn x

Great idea Keryn and they will be a lovely addition to your Christmas table. I was the same with the new blogger but I am really getting used to it now, give it time;)

I don't like the new blogger either .... but I'm going to give it a go.

If you really can't be doing with it you can still switch back to the old style. On the top right there is a cog icon - just click on that and select Old Blogger Interface :)

Love your favour boxes!

Wow these are gorgeous Keryn and that 12x12 card is yummy!!!. That Silhouette does amazing things girl!!!. Totally agree about new blogger, I absolutely hate it. Why change it unless it's for the better??. It is so bland and boring too to look at and all those stats??? why do we need them. Just to cheer you up though start hounding the postie after tomorrow as a parcel of goodies on it's way. Big hugs Clare xxx

You are not the first one I've heard say this Keryn.

I had a look but opted to go back to the original, why ever they want to change something that works I will never know.

Have a good Sunday, Blogger apart.

Have you changed to something new that I don't know about Keryn? Can you tell if mine is the same as yours or do I have to change mine too?

Claire said...

Fab makes hun and love the papers. Keep with Blogger hun, the new style really isn't that bad and is easy to adapt too, just give it time. Hugs, Claire x

Hazel said...

What a fab idea for Clare's CCC challenge - they are so dainty and gorgeous. As for the new blogger I started using it quite a while ago now - at first I wasn't sure and sometimes went back to the old, but once you get used to it it's OK - just like anything else you get used to it and it becomes the norm. x

Happy Days said...

Wowzer Keryn these are amazing. I'm just trying to figure out how do these by hand (no fancy cutting machine as yet).

I accidently clicked on the new blogger link the other day and promptly panicked!!! However, I've had a good play with it and am starting to get to grips with it. Creating a post is much better as I can actually get pictures to the size I want and also place them where I want. I think you can change back to the old style blogger - I'll see if I can find a link for you.

Love these Keryn, the paper is gorgeous. I've managed to find my way around the new blogger but as you say it's extremely bland! Carol x
