It's Beginning To Look A Lot Like Christmas....

Hi Creative Friends!
 With only a week to go til the big day, it truly is beginning to look a lot like Christmas!
 To help get you into the Festive Spirit our talented Design Team have put together a few of their delightful Christmas projects to inspire you!

First up is the incredible Sue, with these stunning creations.....

  - Decorative Card Peg -

I know - just darling isn't it?!
Sue says,
"the little deer has dimensional magic and brown glitter all over him for extra sparkle"

Simply gorgeous!

 - Reindeer Christmas Tag -

Another delightful Christmas project! Those reindeers are so sweet and sparkly!
And I'm loving the golden words - divine!!!

- Vintage Santa Tag -

WOW! Aren't these all so lovely?!!
Sue says,
"I love working small as you can pack in tiny details"
So much attention to detail indeed! Just stunning!
Here's another off the page Christmas delight from Sue,

-A Visit From Santa-
(Window Display)

Simply lost for words over this stunner!
What a beautiful Christmas gift this will be for one lucky recipient!
Thankyou Sue for such incredibly beautiful and inspiring creations, you never fail to impress!

Next up, Leonie wows us with this Holly Jolly layout....

Leonie has such a fun and wonderful way of capturing her family Christmas memories.

Doesn't that black inked title, Tis the Season to be Jolly, look fantastic?!
And those stars really guide your eyes through the layout.
Here's what Leonie says about her creating,
"I went with a classic red, white & black collour scheme for my Christmas page. The chipboard is all inked with black to make it 'pop' off the page"
Well, it definitely pops! Looks fabulous, thanks Leonie!

And the last of our inspiration comes from me today -
had you guessed it wasn't Natalie blogging with you today? ;)
Christmas Surprises all round!

It's me, Amanda (aka @happy_arty_days)!
As you know, my style is very modern, contemporary and fresh - so here's my very non-traditional Christmas layout,

"Merry Christmas, Mr Reindeer!"

I've used the very same reindeer chipboard that Sue used on her projects. It really demomstrates how versatile and different the one chipboard can be.
With Christmas red & green being such dominant colours I chose to keep the reindeer chipboard natural to soften & compliment the palette. I love the 'raw' look & it works so well with male layouts - not quite so girly!
I also wanted a really 'clean' page that captured the innocence of my cute subject; I think I pulled it off!
But you be the judge!

Well, that's all for today!
But don't worry, our clever designers will be filling your stockings   crafting minds, with a ton of Christmas love and cheer all month!

 *Please be sure to leave a comment to go in the draw to win a pack of chipboard*

Thanks for visiting,
Have a holly jolly Christmas!
