It’s been a very hot couple of days in Queensland but fortunately it’s gone back to normal warm December weather today. Thank goodness!!
I had a fun Friday doing a Miss Biscuit cookie course. I learnt how to ice sugar cookies in 7 Christmas designs. The room smelt like gingerbread all day!!
This week, we are casing the Wrapped in Plaid suite, pages 12-17 of the 2019 Holiday Catalogue.
I love the Wrapped in Plaid suite, and the gorgeous DSP. When flipping through the pages, I decided to case one of the cards on page 15 which uses the Peaceful Boughs Bundle.
I decided to keep the branches green and went with Pear Pizzazz. The base of my card is Cherry Cobbler as I like the traditional red/green Christmas combo. I then stamped sentiment in Cherry Cobbler and cut it out using the Beautiful Boughs die. I cut out the branches with a piece of retired Dazzling Diamonds glimmer paper.
I added a few snowflakes from the Snowflake Sequins for a little more sparkle.
Next up is the lovely Michelle.
We would love to see your creations from this section. Please share it over on at our Facebook group.
Welcome to a fun week of Caseing the Catty!! I haven’t had a chance to join in with the last couple of challenges as it’s that busy time of year!! Last weekend, I went to Sydney for Onstage and was able to catch up with my team. I was lucky to attend Centrestage with my upline and a couple of my stamping friends.
We are trying a different challenge this week and casing an Annual Catalogue layout and give it a Holiday Twist.
It’s always nice to go back through the Annual Catalogue and look closely at all the gorgeous projects. I didn’t get too far in and went with a layout on page 31.
I like the watercoloured background so I used a piece of shimmery white cardstock and did a wash of Garden Green. Once it was dry, I attached to the Real Red card. I really like the Peaceful Boughs stamp set and the sentiment, which I cut out using the Beautiful Boughs dies.
The Real Red ruched ribbon is lovely and works perfectly behind the sentiment. I cut out a few branches and added Ice glitter to the tips.
Next up is the lovely Judy, who I got to hug last week!!
