Last month, I got a beautiful Carta Bella Christmas Day kit in my DT kit from Anna at Anna's Craft Cupboard. It is a stunning range of papers, they are a beautiful texture and weight, and the entire range comes in gorgeous coordinating "traditional" Christmas colours.
This is what I did with them:
Here are some close ups:
Here is the next layout I created:
I adored the beatiful "bird" embellishments in this range, and just had to feature them in one of my layouts. So, I used them in this layout I did about Connor and his favourite Christmas toy last year. I used some co-ordinating stickers from the sticker sheet in the Carta Bella paper kit, and some Kaisercraft and Prima Flowers. The title came from some coordinating thickers in my DT Kit, which I liked so much I think I'll have to get another pack for myself!
Here are the cose - ups:
I don't know about you, but Christmas for me is not only a time of giving and receiving gifts, it is a time of be thankful for the things in my life that God has given me. I love the quote "There is no greater gift at Christmas to have everything you want before you open the presents" I am so very thankful for these two special men:
I actually used some Kraft cardstock as a base, then I sprayed with some Glimmermist - Plum Pudding, and then randomly stamped some script using a Tim Holtz stamp and some Stazon Ink - in Timber Brown.
I also used some Prima Flowers, Vines and some Manor House Creations flowers on this layout.
Here are the close - ups.
Well, what do you think? I've also created some cards and tags, but they haven't gone up on the ACC blog yet, so I will hold off sharing them here.
Have a lovely Sunday everyone!
