Ink & Share August Blog Hop ~ Holiday Catalogue

Hi Crafters! Welcome to another Ink & Share blog hop. This time we are sharing goodies from the new upcoming seasonal catalogue. 

I've decided to focus on my favourite suite of goodies - Santa's Workshop. As soon as I saw it I knew it had to be on my pre-order. So here goes ...

If you have just hopped in from Rebecca-Jo then I'm sure you're already brimming over with ideas of what to buy and make. If you've come straight here, then please so follow round the whole blog hop after seeing mine,  I've added a list of participants underneath the "Next" button.

The designer series paper is divine!
Most of the sheets are flocked one side meaning each 12x12 sheet is luxurious and you'll just want to sit and stroke it!

I started off making some cards. I used the stamps, dies as well as the papers. I used the mirror stamping technique. Check out my video below to see how I did that.

My next play involved the papers, stamps and also the Window Box Thinlits dies. I think the end result looks great, hope you do too. I added some glimmer paper and Wink Of Stella to add "bling!
 Window Box Thinilts 142762

And finally, a smart looking gift box using the paper that in my opinion is the most "touchy feely" - the beautiful candy cane striped paper. It made a lovely lid for the box. Again I've added a short video of how I made the box.


So, I hope I've whetted your appetite and tempted you to go buy the papers at the very least. I cant stop playing with it and its only August! I know I'll be ordering more of the 12x12 papers very soon.

Happy crafting and see you soon
