Okay… okay… I know it’s only August but all of you crafters out there know that Christmas in the crafting world starts in June and ends mid September when Spring makes are thrust upon us. So I’m sure you’ll be less than surprised to see a Christmas post me me. Now, I’m not the most Christmas-loving person in the world (I really do have to force myself with Christmas makes) but I’ve really enjoyed playing with these papers – something to do with knowing where they’ve come from?!
Many many moons ago, myself and the lovely Stickerkitten (A.K.A. Sarah!) were on the Docrafts DT together and have remained Facebook friends although we’ve never actually met in real life – yet! Haha! When she announced she was bringing out her own range of paper crafts I was super chuffed for her and James (her hubby – the designer behind the images) and I have tried my best to support them as best I can.
So today I’m sharing a couple of cute makes using their fabulous new range ‘Penguins and Presents’.
Their latest Christmas themed range has papers, wooden embellishments, super sparkly sequins and stamps and as I mentioned before, all the images are designed by James.
After watching Sarah on Facebook Live last Saturday, I really liked the way she had used the range with kraft card and although it’s only peeping out on this first quick make, it softens the papers… if you get me?!
The second make uses everything in the range:
The wooden embellishments are brilliant and can be easily painted. I gave mine a coat of gesso first as I wanted the colours to remain bright and not get sucked into the wood itself.
So there you have it. I definitely had fun making these two cards and have a few ideas up my sleeve for gift bags and tags… who knows possibly even a cracker!
Do check out Stickerkitten’s other ranges as they are all utterly gorgeous and being a small, new business, they thoroughly deserve some success!
Have a good week everyone, H x
