Silent Night (Craft & You)

I have another Christmas / Winter themed layout to share today - this time using papers from the 'Silent Night' collection by Craft & You. These papers are double-sided and heavyweight so they are nice to work with. 

I started this layout using the 'Silent Night - 05 Paper' as the base and then kept it simple by just adding a few layers of paper on top. To embellish I cut some poinsettia's from white and green cardstock, layered these up and added a jewelled flower centre.

I painted a snowflake swirl piece of chipboard with white paint and added some glitter glue to the areas with the snowflakes. I also added the glitter glue to the snow covering the trees on the background paper.

Silver & Gold (Bo Bunny)

I felt like getting in the festive mood today so grabbed out some Christmas themed supplies to make a layout ready to add my photo after Christmas day :)  I decided to use the Bo Bunny collection 'Silver & Gold' - I love Bo Bunny collections, the papers are great quality, have lots of bits to cut out and there is always a great selection of different embellishments which co-ordinate perfectly. 

For my first layout I created a punched strip to add across the page, we are currently out of stock of this particular punch but we do have a similar one which I have linked below. I cut a piece of paper 7cm wide and punched both edges. 

I then added clusters of embellishments - dimensional stickers with glitter accents, some textured poinsettia blossoms, metal trinkets and a lovely pinecone and berry sprig which is brand new by Petaloo. 

For my second layout I cut 3 circles in varying sizes to make the focal point. I added some smaller doily shapes cut with a die (we have a few different ones in store which I will link below) from one of the papers in the set so that it all co-ordinates and then embellished with more of the 3-dimensional stickers.

All of the products I used for these layouts are linked below - I used two sheets of the 'Silver & Gold - Red Paper' and 'Silver & Gold - Festivities Paper'.

December Monthly Kits

It is that time of the month again when our monthly kits are released :) 

This month we have 3 kits to choose from - a main kit, mini kit and a project life kit. 

Our main kit features the gorgeous 'Christmas in Norway' collection by Pion Designs - soft vintage Scandinavian style papers. As always, both layouts shown were created using the kit as inspiration.

Our Mini Kit this month is 'Vintage Christmas' using papers of the same name by Blue Fern Studios. Again, both layouts were created from the kit...

Our Project Life kit is packed with papers, cardstock and embellishments to create pocket-page project life style cards. We have created two spreads as inspiration and we still had lots of papers/embellishments left over to have carried on! The kit also contains 2 page protectors in the format shown by our cards :)
