Christmas Cheer

I have enjoyed playing with some of the new release dies this month, they can add so much to a layout!

With the ‘Holly Circle’ die,  I sprayed my die cut and sprinkled on some glitter, fixing it with a fixative spray so the glitter stayed on the page and not me!
I have used the Poinsettia die soooooooooo much!!! I love to curl the petals back with a skewer and layer them with foam tape atop each other, three layers looks fab! I love to glitter these too – after all, it’s Christmassy! Did you know you can cut two poinsettias at a time and don’t forget to use Kaisercrafts Die Release paper, (T322). Place this between the die and the paper when cutting and the paper will release easily!
The third die I used is a real favourite, (Mini Christmas Foliage). I love that I can get nine little festive branches and leaves and three little dots in just one pass. The little dots were perfect for the centre of the Poinsettias!

Oh Christmas Tree


Oh Christmas Tree

Hi papercrafters!

I have been getting very festive and my Christmas cards are in full swing.
Just loving the ‘Silent Night’ and ‘Frosted’ collections this month!
Today I thought I would share my ‘Christmas Spirit Box’ with you –  well, that’s what mine will be, I will tell you all about it in my video!
It’s what I call a triple drop down (or explosion) box and in the center is a grand Christmas Tree, just like you would find in a busy city center at Christmas.
I wanted to share how I created this little beauty so again, I have made a video which will take you through its creation so you can play too. Check out the video on my  video page on this blog, (see above).
