Stash busting Christmas cards

Hello there Scrappers!
If you are anything like me, you have a rather large stash of older products, of collections that are mostly used but there's still bits and pieces left - and you can't throw anything away - ever!  Because you never know when it will come in handy!
So, I decided to make some Christmas cards with what I have on hand.  Preferably not Christmas ranges - there's nothing like challenge, right?!
First up, I saw my sheet of Pebbles – DIY Home Collection – Washi Tape Paper ... this was perfect for a washi background!
THIS PAPER from the Pebbles DIY Home collection even featured a deer head that I cut out with a paper punch :)
For my second card, I used some journal cards from My Mind’s Eye – On Trend 2 Collection – Journal Cards.  Using journal cards is one of my favourite things to do on cards - it makes creating easy!
I added some Heidi Shine on the background for some shimmer :)
Do you make Christmas cards?  Do you use non-Christmas ranges?
Happy creating :)

Nov sketch at SC

😊 Hello there Scrappers!

I hope you are all enjoying the challenges at Scrapping Clearly this month - and maybe you found time to play along with our Birthday challenges too?
Here is the November sketch:

I was instantly inspired by the sunburst background and knew I had the perfect The Crafter's Workshop stencil which I used with some mist ...
You'll notice I did mirror the sketch to suit my photo, plus I added a few more layers here and there for added interest.  I've loved playing with the Cocoa Vanilla You Rock collection - it's perfect for pets, too!
I've added some sparkle with the Heidi Swapp Glitter Stickers Navy – Epic ... I just love these!  Lots of layers with the chipboard and veneer, along with the paper ephemera ...

Happy Scrapping!

Hello there!
Have you seen this month's mood board over at Scrapping clearly yet? It's quite dramatic!

Such a vibrant board, isn't it!

I was inspired by the colours, and the grid design...

I used the Something Wonderful 6 x 6 Designer Pad for the background papers -
I've wanted to do this design for a while...  and this was the perfect opportunity!

I just love that street map washi tape - so versatile and fun :)

That gold word thicker is so hard to photograph - but so awesome to use!

Hope you can play along with our challenges this month. :)
