MORE CHRISTMAS JOY

Just a quick share today, I decided I had enough Christmas papers to last another few years, and I did not really want to buy any more for a while! So I dug through the pile of Christmas stuff I had and challenged myself to use it, so this layout is made of French papers I got a few years back, the colours are a bit unusual but I tried to make it work as best I could.
I used my WOW chipboards (these are brand new): candy cane and holly and leaves set.
To decorate those amazing pieces I tried something different: I coloured them with my Tria Alcohol Markers and white glitter+glue. Now if you look closely, the candy cane was transformed into the letter J to start my title Joy! I coloured part of the candy cane green and went with a glue pen in the leftover space and sprinkled with white glitter. What I liked about the alcohol markers and that the chipboard "drinks" the colour and the colours has that vintagy look. As for the rest of the design well lots of distressing, inking and tearing!
I will be back with a sneak peek! Thanks for coming by!

TIS THE SEASON...

Another Christmas layout! I have been playing with new Martha Stewart border combo punches, and I love them! Fatcats has a lot in stock! Also used lots of Prima! The papers are a mixture of old and new Kaiser papers that had been stashed away/forgotten about. And the wonderful Santa and Sleigh chippy at the bottom of my layout is from WOW of course! The alphabet stickers are Prima, the doily is Kaiser.
A little tip: with the border punch I used the cute little circle offcuts and scattered them around my page.


Hope you like it! Cheers for now!

CARDS, FOR CHRISTMAS....

Well another week-end gone, did a bit of scrapping, can't share just yet, as my projects are not quite finished, one I am not happy with, the other one I am much happier with.
So today, just a quick share, 2 cards I created a couple of weeks ago, using Prima papers (North Country Collection), I find the colour scheme very Christmassy and soft and I kind of love the mix of beige, white and red.
These cards are very WOW, one has chipboard but I also used the chipboard circle frame to make both those circle cards, I find those frames so versatile because I can use them over and over again as templates!

I hope you like it, I will be back sometime this week to share some more Christmas goodness!
Thanks for coming

ANOTHER XMAS LAYOUT

Hi,

Well another w-e gone and I did not get to scrapbook as much as I thought I would, got one layout done, I used the new released Fancy Reindeer, and holly and leaves set from WOW, I covered the leaves with red distress embossing powder and the holly with white Kaiser pearls. I also added some Martha Stewart punched borders and new Memory Box lace circle die.
Well that's it for now, thanks for coming by and have a lovely week!

JOYEUX NOEL WOW STYLE!

Well, it is November already and it is Xmas month at WOW, we were all given some fantastic pieces to play with. So I will start with a layout the colours were inspired by the latest Prima Xmas papers and flowers of course! Very soft layout about DD, so photogenic isn't she? She is growing so fast and can be very naughty too lol :) The chipboard piece that I used is Christmas Ornament Border, it is stunningly detailed and great to work with! I kept it simple, I painted it white and clear embossed some Xmas words and shapes for a little detail ;) you can see it on the close ups. I also used my new toys from Fatcats, the Memory Box Frosty border die, it is just great so easy to use! Now here are the pics:


I will be back soon with some Xmas cards using some more Prima and wow!
