Cards & Crafts for christmas...

Volume 2 of the above is out now on sale in W H Smith's.

I am really pleased as I have a big article in their, that considering the very short notice i got came out particularly well under the circumstances..

I was asked to do gift writing set with box, 8 cards and 5 tree decorations...

For the decorations I used nestabilites, and the Amuse Elzybells Na designs... these little fellas are just too cute..

I was asked to use blue silver and white and that all items including papers were to be current. well i thought i were stomped until i remembered i had the Pink petticoat christmas design CD.... WHHHOOOPEEE!!!

I used cuttlebug nesting hearts die to cut out chipboard hearts, everything had to be of a stamping orientation... so I painted the hearts with paint dabers and embossed them using a flourish stamp and clear embossing powder...

Other than stated the rest of the stash I got from Craftsulove...

Although the mag is £5.99 there are some stunning stuff in there 177 projects....
A worthwhile buy if i might say so myself...

  14. Kim, these are just fabulous.

    I love the writing set and the hanging decorations.

    All Pink Dawn sent me some Magnolia stamped images a while ago and I've yet to do anything with them. I keep looking at them thinking I'll spoil them if I touch them. But yours look just fabulous with those papers. I might have to be brave and give them a go : )

    I'll be picking up my copy next time I'm in Smiths - I can't wait to see everything in print! I know you're used to seeing yourself in print, me too, but it's always still exciting isn't it?

    Thanks ever so much for using your Pink P papers Kim. You've made them look stunning : )

    Best Wishes,
    Liz
