'Ho Ho Ho'

Hi Papercrafters
Today I have another layout using the beautiful 'It's Beginning to Look a Lot Like Christmas'collection from Ultimate crafts.
My son Jack loves to fool around and is so photogenic. I loves this pic, he was pretending the bobble on his hat was his mike and was singing Jingle Bells. 
How I love Christmas!

The layout is very straightforward and easy to copy. I embossed some vanilla cardstock with beautiful Christmas words (ULT158301 - Winter Wonderland Embossing Folder), and die cut some snowflakes (ULT 158320 - Snowflake Decorative Die)
to add texture. 
I also cut the poinsettias and layered them up.

It's a great layout that you can do in advance for this Christmas, who says we can't scrap first and take pictures later!!!

For my little sentiment I simply printed it out on the computer and rolled to edges to form a scroll.

Hi Papercrafters

I have had fun getting a little bit messy with this card. I used lots of the beautiful new dies and papers from the 'It's Beginning to Look a Lot Like Christmas' Collection from Ultimate Crafts. 
The collection is fabulously Christmassy and I always seem to sing Christmas carols to myself while I craft with it! 

So for this little card I......
Covered my card base in paper from the paper pad. Die cut the gorgeous window die and rubbed some white paint on it. Attached some acetate to the back of the window.Cut some floral patterned paper for behind the window and attach it the card with foam tape.Attached the window with foam tape.Created the lovely little 'Christmas Spray' with vellum poinsettias, die cuts, flower buds and pearls and a little bit of fussy cutting for the leaves.Applied a fine sprinkle of glitter (after all it is Christmas and I do love bling!).Printed out on my computer a sentiment onto a scrap of paper from the paper pad and popped it…

'Joy to the World'

Hi beautiful Papercrafters!

Today is World Card Making Day and to celebrate I have made a sweet Christmas card with the beautiful , 'It's Beginning to look a Lot Like Christmas' collection from Ultimate Crafts. 
As you know I have had fun playing with the collection this past month!

I so love creating flower clusters on my cards. I sprtized and then painted this flower to get the colour I wanted!  That's why I love to buy white flowers, so that I can alter them any way I want!

My new favourite toy in my craft room is Ultimate Crafts 'Go Press & Foil'. If you don't have one, right a letter to Santa ...... right now! 
It is so awesome. 
On this little card I foiled the sentiment and it looks so utterly gorgeous!

Christmas Tree

Hello papercrafters

I love the new collection from Couture Creations 'It's Beginning to Look a Lot Like Christmas', and with Christmas fast approaching I though I would create a little card for you, and of course I have made a video to show you how, just in case you want to play too! The collection is so very Christmassy, the colours and designs could be nothing else, just perfect!

My card features a layered and dimensional Christmas tree which is easy to create and adds so much fun and dimension to the card.

The background papers are so traditional and even a quick glance at the card shouts out 'Christmas! The addition of some sparkle and glitter add to the festive fun.

The Video I have made a video that will show you step by step how I have made this card. I hope you enjoy it. Please don't forget to hit the subscribe button, found on the bottom right corner of my video, this way you will not miss a thing and it's free!

Shabby Chic Layout

I have had so much fun with a new 'Shabby Chic' kit that I recently bought on line! The papers and embellishments are so beautiful, they are a wonderful weight and the colours are "oh so pretty!".

So first I made this shabby chic layout.

Aren't the papers lovely!
Hope you like it!
