CHRISTMASTIME IS HERE SWAPS!

Christmas is fast approaching.  I have just time to show you these 2 cards I received for swaps recently.  These are using the Christmastime is Here suite. 

This first card was created by Peta one of my team members.  I received this as a swap for Onstage in early November but hadn’t shared it with you yet.  The copper makes it very classy.  She used the Stitched Rectangles Dies to create the card mats for the gorgeous array of flowers.

This next one is just a mini card.  It is about 7.5cm x 5cm (3″ x 2″) – roughly anyway.   The flowers are cut from the gorgeous Christmastime is Here specialty Designer Series Paper.  This one was a swap from my upline Vanessa. She added a little stamping too.

This Christmastime is Here Suite of products are still available in my store -> HERE.  Just because Christmas is over don’t think you can’t use them.  They are beautiful, elegant products for a birthday or wedding.

If ordering online please use the Host Code: REKK2FW4

Wishing you all a wonderful Christmas time however you spend it.  I hope it is filled with love and special people around you.  For some I know Christmas can be a difficult time.  Know that you are loved and I pray that God’s grace and strength will fill you at this time.

Much love to you.

CHRISTMASTIME IS HERE TAGS!

Over the weekend I had my last class for the year.  It’s been a fun year of creating, sharing and laughs.  For our last class we made a Christmas box and 6 tags.  I thought we would have a closer look at the tags.

We made 2 of each of these tags using the gorgeous Christmastime is Here Specialty Designer Series Paper.  They were certainly loved by everyone and I think they will grace many presents this Christmas.

What else did we use?

Itty Bitty Christmas, Christmas Gleaming Stamp set, Snow Globe Scenes Dies, Rectangles Stitched Dies, Stitched Shapes Dies, Detailed Trio Punch, Banner Triple Punch, Delightful Tag Topper Punch, Sprig Punch.

Hope they might inspire you with your Christmas tags.

The Christmastime is Here Suite of products are still available.  I would grab that paper. It is great not just for Christmas.

See them -> HERE.

Have a great week,

Jenny

CHRISTMASTIME TALL BOX!

The Christmastime is Here Suite has been with us all month.  I have been so busy with projects for Onstage that I haven’t had near enough time with it.  I have been using the papers particularly though.

Recently I made a tall gift box using the Christmastime is Here Specialty Designer Series Paper.  I have had lots of lovely comments from class members when they see the box so thought you might like to see it yourself.

I love that this paper has the gold embossed outlines over one side of the paper.  There are 3 different designs in the pack with some type of gold touches.  It is gorgeous.  AND I love that this paper could easily be used for any occasion not just Christmas.

Here is the box I made.  Fill it with chocolates for a lovely friend, wrap around some of the gorgeous Gold ribbon and add a sentiment piece.  What more do you need.

The sentiment is from the set A Big Thank You.  The flowers were fussy cut from some of the paper.

Here is how to make your own Tall box.

CHRISTMASTIME IS HERE TALL BOX TUTORIAL

Cut card to 21cm x 21cm (8 ¼” x 8 ¼”)

Score on one side at 5cm and 19cm (2”, 7 ½”)

Turn and score on the other side at 5cm, 10cm, 15cm and 20cm.

(2”, 4”, 6”, 8”)

Card mats for the side: 4 each of 4.6cm x 13.6cm (1 7/8” x 5 3/8”)

Designer Series Paper: 4 each of 4.2cm x 13.2cm (1 ¾” x 5 ¼”)

Scraps for decorating.

Gold Ribbon

1. Fold on all score lines.

2. On the long side cut up on the score lines to the score line that runs across. This creates your tabs to fold up. Cut up each tab on both the top of the card and the bottom. The smaller tabs will be the bottom of the box. The larger tabs will form the top of the box.

3. On the short side of the card cut on the 2 score lines that are on the very narrow tab. Cut off completely the top tab and the bottom tab so you only have a narrow tab section in the middle.

4. Adhere the paper pieces to the card mat pieces and adhere them all to the sides of the box. You can adhere them after the box is assembled but it is a little easier to do it first.

To assemble the box:

5. Fold the score lines to form a box shape. Place adhesive on the outside of the narrow side tab and adhere the box together. On the small tabs at the bottom place adhesive on the outside of 3 of the tabs and fold in adhering them together on top of each other. Fold the last unglued tab over the top.

6. The top flaps will fold in and will hold together with wrapping the ribbon around.

7. Decorate the box as you like.

Hope you make one of the boxes for yourself.  They are very easy.

ELEGANT CHRISTMASTIME IS HERE!

You have read about the Christmastime Is Here Suite.  I have posted about it a little.  It’s a limited edition suite available now until the supplies are out.

I received the gorgeous Christmastime is Here Specialty Designer Series Paper recently and just had to try it out.

With this gorgeous paper you don’t need to do too much.

One side of each print has beautiful Gold embossed lines. I cut around one of the larger images on one of the designs of paper.  Layering this on another of the gorgeous prints and layering that on some Mossy Green card.

The sentiment was heat embossed in Gold and diecut with a rectangle from the Rectangles Stitched Dies.  I showed a post or 2 back how you could layer this sentiment on to one of the diecut frames in the Ornate Frames Dies.  I just love that effect.

Grab this Suite – or the items individually – now while supplies last.  Find out more about it all -> HERE.

Happy Stamping,

Jenny
