This month we were challenged with card layout. I chose to use the Most Wonderful Time Product Medley. A gorgeous suite of products that include stamps, dies, 6×6 papers, adhesive image sheets, stars & tinsel.
I used the stamps & the designer series paper stack for this project. I also used the Mossy Meadow linen thread from the Magnolia Lane Ribbon Combo Pack which I feel just goes beautifully with rest of the card.
I love the gold foil on the red mistletoe background paper and then on the flip side are the trees. I loved this combination together as they are very traditional Christmas colours. I like the simplicity of the card with just the tree and then with the candy canes as the decorations on the tree. I felt that the tree was still a little naked so I used the other tree image as the branches stamped off. I just kept stamping till it filled in the spaces of the tree.
I added the Mossy Meadow linen thread to break up the sentiment and the tree, Then I added a christmas present on the scallop circle in real red so it is quite a subtle tone on tone image.
I made another card but rotated the design on the next card as I cut the patterned paper incorrectly but it enabled me to create another card. I used the scallop circle with the image in real red ink.
Welcome to this months Team Blog Hop #9. You may have joined me from Olivia’s blog. Please feel free to take a look around. This month we had a colour challenge using up to 5 colours. I chose to use 4 colours and hoping that using whisper white is allowed.
I chose to use the High Tide stamp set along with some patterned paper from the Come Sail Away DSP.
I used some Balmy Blue layered under the striped patterned paper and then with the Mint Macaron I used the Subtle 3D embossing folder to add some texture.
I stamped the sentiment onto a Sahara Sand Circle using the Layering Circle Dies and then using the same circle cut out a Balmy Blue circle to layer off centre.

During November I will be holding 3 Santa’s Workshop Card Classes using the Santa’s Workshop Suite from the Holiday Catalogue.
In the class you can make 16-20 cards using the Santa’s Workshop Memories&More Card Pack & Cards & Envelopes Pack. The Memories & More Card Packs make it so easy to make lots of cards in one sitting. The Cards & Envelopes Pack make it even easier with pre-scored cards and matching envelopes.
This is a great way to get a lot of Christmas Cards made quickly and ready for you to send out.
These cards were originally designed by Trish Todd in the US. I used her card design layouts to make my cards. The Memories & More card pack make these cards very simple and with limited stamping needed.

For my Day 5 project I made up a jar with “Reindeer Noses” inside which are Malteasers and Jaffas. Its a cute little project that anyone would love. A great gift for kids too though maybe a bit too much chocolate.
I’ve used the Merry Music Specialty Designer Series Paper, Green Sprigs, Mini Ornaments & Black Shimmer Ribbon and purchased the glass jar from Kmart.
I’ve listed all the products used at the bottom of this post.
The 12 Days of Christmas continues with the this gorgeous project.
This is a gorgeous paper wreath that I’ve seen on different Facebook pages and so I have made my own to go on my front door. I just love the colours of Cherry Cobbler & Garden Green together. They really are great Christmas Colours. I added the Black Striped Ribbon to add some more contrast and added in the Cherry Cobbler Stitched ribbon.
I have used the sentiment from Snowflake Sentiments and cut it out with the Lots of Labels Framelits.
And here is it on my Front Door. I was concerned that with some of the rain that it may get damaged or with the sun that it will fade but, as my husband said, you can make another next year. Well why not make another one next year 🙂
I have included a video of how to make this project as well so you can make one at home. Or you can contact me to find out how to make it.
