Christmas Crafting

I have recently returned from my first Stampin' Up! Incentive Trip on an Alaskan cruise !  As a bucket list destination, we were fortunate to be able to extend our own holiday another two weeks.  We had thoroughly amazing adventures throughout our extended holiday but spent over a month without crafting !  

Getting my hands inky again this week, I am sharing a few projects I've made using the Under The Mistletoe Suite, featured on page 94/95 of the Stampin' Up! 2018-19 Annual Catalogue.
Firstly, to break myself in gently, I made a few quick cards.  I love the colour combination of the Under The Mistletoe cardstock pack #146923 and Designer Series Paper #146921, featuring Old Olive, Real Red and the NEW Shaded Spruce.  I started cutting one base card and one mat layer in each of the three colours and a top layer of our beautiful Designer Series Papers.

Being an Independent Stampin' Up! Demonstrator, we get to view the upcoming Autumn/Winter 2018 catalogue a month early, releasing on 5th September.  If you would like a copy posted, please get in touch with me on the details below. 

For these cards I have used a NEW All Is Bright Suite from this upcoming catalogue, featuring the Merry Christmas to All Bundle #149952, Photopolymer stamps and Thinlits Dies.
My first 3D project this week is a project I have wanting to make for some time having seen a few ideas online.  Here is my version using Shaded Spruce cardstock.  It was such a fun project and far less complicated than it looks !  Now I've created one, there'll be a few more this weekend, using some of the new DSP in the Autumn/Winter catalogue.  
I love creating 3D gifts and boxes and, thinking about this years Christmas Fairs, I created some Festive Gift Tags and of course a handmade box to pop them in !  Here I used the Layering Circles Framelits #141705 to cut two circles.  One has a crease at the top to create the hinge and a tiny slice off the bottom to enable it to stand flat. 
The little box was a simple design with Shaded Spruce base and Whisper White lid, decorated with Under The Mistletoe Designer Series paper, with Real Red sponged edges.
For my last project today, I was inspired by the 'deer' on the Designer Series Paper, to prepare a Scrapbook page, ready for mounting some of the moose, caribou and deer holiday photos.  The journaling will just have to wait until I have remaining pages on the wildlife theme sorted.  I'm planning to get these sorted and prints ordered this Bank Holiday weekend.
I hope you have enjoyed and been inspired by my selection today using the Under The Mistletoe Suite.  If you don't have a Demonstrator, I would be more than happy to help you.  Please feel free visit my 24/7 online shop following the link below or contact me on the details below.
