I’m not only a papercraft, but a lover of many other crafts!!  One of my all time favourites is cross stitch so I was excited to see the Cross Stitch Christmas stamp set.

Here the latest cross stitch that I finished earlier this year.

Using my Stamparatus, I stamped the 3 trees in Shaded Spruce, Granny Apple Green and Real Red.  It does take a little bit of practice to get the stamps lined up nicely.   I cut it out with an Oval Stitched Shape framelits and then a crumb cake oval.

I embossed the Granny Apple Green with the Quilt Top embossing folder.  Don’t you just love this folder!

I stamped the sentiment in Shaded Spruce and punched it out with the Classic Label punch.  I added a piece of Polka Dot ribbon and Real Red Solid Ribbon.

I just love Christmas!!!  I can’t wait to get into making Christmas cards!

Head on over to visit Lou and check out her gorgeous project!

You may have come from Fi Cobbin, or starting here with me.

I am starting to get in the Christmas spirit so I decided to highlight the lovely holly wreath and use my new Real Red Stampin’ Blends.  (New colours are coming in the 2018 Holiday Catalogue!!)

I just love the Stitched Seasons framelits and the double stitching.  I cut out a piece using the Under the Mistletoe DSP and then decide that I would make two cards and use the opposite pieces.  I also used my favourite Subtles embossing folder!

I love all the pretty paper

esad dsp headerI’m excited to be a part of the ESAD blog hop to showcase the amazing designer series papers of the 2018-2019 Annual Catalogue.

esad dsp about

So there are 10 amazing designer series papers on sale this month.  When you buy 3 packs, you’ll get one for free!!  Check them out here.

To help you decide which papers you NEED, I’ve got a few cards to help you make up your mind.  I just received the Darling Label Punch Box which is stunning!  I love the tin in comes in.

My first card uses the Garden Impressions dsp.  I love how bright and cheerful the paper is.  I also used my new favourite embossing folder, Subtle.  You’ll be seeing it often!

esad-dsp-bec-1The Under the Mistletoe DSP is in my favourite Christmas colours of Real Red and Old Olive.  And again, there’s my favourite embossing folder!

The Petal Promenade DSP is absolutely gorgeous!!  I have to admit that this was a hard paper to cut.

Then I got a bit excited and forgot that the sale doesn’t include the specialty papers.  So here are a couple of extra cards using the Share What You Love Specialty DSP and Tea Room Specialty DSP.

Next up on the hop is the lovely Narelle, I can’t wait to see what she has made.

It’s my lovely friend from Western Australia, Kelly Kent’s Birthday!!  She is having a couple of blog hops to celebrate and I’m so excited to be a part of it!

I wanted to have a play with some new products, so here is part of the new Share What  You Love Suite which is available to purchase right now!  Yes that’s right, you don’t have to wait until 1 June to get your hands on new products.  Just click on the image below to check it out on my online store.

I’ve also used one of the fabulous tutorials by Bronwyn Eastley, which you can purchase here.  It’s the Tri-Fold Window Card which is such a wow card!

I used the Layered oval Framelits to cut out the centres of the card.  And have you noticed the colour of the cardstock!!  Yes, it’s Mint Macaron making a come back in the Colour Revamp!!  I love this colour and am so glad to be able to play with it again. Now when I created my card, I didn’t have the mint macaron ink pad so I just used a versa mark ink pad to create a tone on tone look.   Oh and check out the colour of my ink, it’s the new Grapefruit Grove!

And isn’t the Share What you Love Specialty DSP just beautiful!  There are 4 sheets of each of pattern of the DSP and many of them have a pearly finish to them.  So pretty!!

I also added half a pearlized doily and the new Rich Razzleberry velvet ribbon.  Love velvet ribbons!
