Christmas In July - Projects
My first project uses the gorgeous Jolly Holiday Designer Series Paper. The cardstock used is Cherry Cobbler and Old Olive, with a little Very Vanilla. The set includes a beautiful gift box. It's a great size at just under 16cm square and 7.5 cm high. The stamp set used for the Tag and the cards is Contempo Christmas - this is my absolute favourite Christmas set in the current catalogue (page 25). It's so versatile with the tree, the ornament and sentiment stamps :o)
My second project used the Swirly Star stamp that all my ladies received in their welcome packs. It also uses lots of the Platinum Shimmer Paint :o) The colours here are Marina Mist and Whisper White. The cracker box is made out of a sheet of A4 cardstock - no cutting, just lots of scoring :o) The little tags are created using the Swirly Star stamp and one of the sentiment stamps from Tiny Tags (page 66).
I found the tutorial for the last project on Angela McKay's blog here. It's a really sweet gift bag that you can create from one sheet of 12x12 cardstock or DSP.
We used a sheet of the Jolly Holiday DSP when creating this one. The stamp set used is Welcome Christmas (page 27).
If you would like to purchase the instructions for either of my two main projects, you will find the details in the right hand column.
