Non-Traditional Christmas Colours…

It has been a long time since I posted anything that wasn’t part of a blog hop, but I have recently found my crafting mojo again (just in time for Christmas!!) and so I wanted to share this gorgeous Christmas card with you, using non-traditional Christmas colours. I have used Polished Pink, Pale Papaya, Shaded Spruce and Soft Seafoam for my poinsettias and personally I think it looks stunning! I saw the Global Design Project #GDP319 was on the theme of Christmas this year, so I figured why not get posting and get entering this lovely challenge group. Did you […]

Handmade Christmas Gift Idea – Stamptastic Friends Blog Hop Nov ’21…

Hello and welcome to another Stamptastic Friends blog hop, where this month’s theme is ‘Nature’, a theme I have loosely followed for my handmade Christmas gift idea.

Colour Challenge – Casually Crafting Design Team Blog Hop Nov ’21…

The theme for this month’s hop is a colour challenge, and it’s a good one this month with a Monochrome theme of Basic Black, Basic Grey and Basic White. Personally I can’t wait to see what the other team members have got in store for us! The Peaceful Place Designer Series Papers immediately sprung to my mind when I saw this colour challenge, as they are filled with black, grey and white designs, and pairing them with the fabulous Arctic Bears stamp set has worked wonderfully I think. I must admit this might not at first seem like a project […]
