Ornament Keepsake Bundle Class Cards

Have you bought the new Ornament Keepsake Bundle yet?
It's definitely a hot favourite since the Autumn/Winter Catalogue came out on 1st September.
These were the cards made at last weeks card class.
We used a few new products, along with the Ornament Keepsake BundleCandlelight Christmas Speciality Papers, the Lacy Brocade embossing folder, the Window Frames Framelit Dies and the Festive Paper Piercing Pack.
And check at the beautiful flocked window sheet which comes in the Candlelight Christmas Speciality Papers. It's to die for. You get 2 sheets in a pack too!
Right, I must get this Tutorial finished on the Candlelight Fabric Bauble & Box and ticked off my list....

Mocha Morning Speciality Papers

The Retirement List is still going strong!
There's still some bargains to be had if you're quick, like the Mocha Morning Speciality Papers with 40% Off, down from £11.50 to £6.90. Two of the sheets of 12x12 are flocked. They were definitely a popular choice with my customers.
You know how I like my boxes, here's one I made with the Mocha Morning Speciality Papers.
The stamp set for the cards was 'Charming'. Sadly it retired from the Spring Mini back in April. Cute little set, it's a keeper for me.
So if you didn't get these papers and wish you had, be quick, you know you want to...

Candlelight Christmas Stars

My husband has been asking why I've got the Christmas Tree up in September. I've been in the Christmas mode for a few weeks now (I wonder why??) so I'm suprised it's only taken him till now to notice! Men eh?
So, the last class on Sunday was these beautiful Christmas Stars.
I absolutely love making these. If you could see how gorgeous the Snowflakes, die cut from the Snow Flurries Die in Chamagne Glitter paper sparkle in real life, you'd be blown away. My photography just doesn't do them justice.
The glass faceted buttons you see on some of the stars are a little sneak of what's coming in the Annual Catalogue. I was lucky enough to receive some whilst in Vienna. They're really gorgeous.
All the projects created at the 'Christmas is Coming' Event were made using the Candlelight Christmas collection which can be found on page 4 of the NEW Autumn/Winter catalogue.
I'm still working on the tutorials which should be up next week. Bear with me though, I've a few classes over the next 2 days and next week but as soon as I've done them, I'll have them up.
Hope you've enjoyed seeing the projects that everyone made at the 'Christmas is Coming' All Day Event. There is just one more thing I've not yet shown you, you'll have to wait for that as part of the 12 weeks of Christmas Newsletter starting in October.

Candlelight Christmas Card Box

The main project for the 'Christmas is Coming' All Day Event last Sunday was this very luxurious card box.
The flocked window sheet from the Candlelight Christmas Speciality Papers is absolutely stunning used as the lid and really shows it off beautifully. The Scalloped Tulle Ribbon bow adds that finishing touch. Reminds me of a box of chocolates don't you think? 
Unfortunately no chocs inside but 4 cards, 4 tags and a decorated pen.
The cards and tags are stamped with the Joyous Celebrations stamp set and were embossed with the Holiday Frame Embossing Folder. Each one slightly different.
Again there will be a tutorial for this plus an optional kit to purchase if you so wish. More details coming very soon.
See you tomorrow with the last project.

'Christmas is Coming' Event Project #1

I know it's only September but Christmas is only 3 months away and we do like to be prepared, right?
 Yesterday was my 'Christmas is Coming' Event and omg, how busy did I keep everyone!
. The projects were designed using NEW products from the Autumn/Winter Catalogue which has lots of gorgeous Christmas stamp sets, Designer Papers, Accessories and much more. Have you seen it yet?
So would you lke to see what everyone made?
There were 3 beautiful projects to make over the day - 1 main project and 2 smaller classes.
This luxurious fabric bauble was one of the smaller classes...
Made with the NEW Candlelight Christmas Fabric. And because I can't do things in half measures, everyone made a box for it to go in too.
This box is made from 1 sheet of 12 x 12 cardstock and the matching Candelight Christmas Speciality Papers.
A tutorial will be going up in the week if you'd like to make this too.
Not many photos were taken during the day in fact there were only two! lol
My Mum's very tasty buffet ready to devour...
And everyone busy beavering away....
Back tomorrow with the main project.
