XCut Christmas Wreath

This has been made using the new XCut Wreath Die Set.
There are lots of components to this one and is is great to build up the layers as much, or as little as you like.  I've used sticky foam pads to make it quicker but you could use Pinflair Glue Gel to really make the most of the shaping of the decorations.

Happy Christmas Crafting!

XCut Christmas Decorations...

XCut have brought out some great new dies to make your very own Christmas decorations.

These are best cut out of cardstock, and stick them as you go.  I made the mistake of trying to put them together without any glue and just as I got near to the end, it all fell apart!!  I won't repeat what I said!!! Both these decorations have been made using the XCut Christmas Decoration die which retails at £12.99, but is available from Crafty Devils at ONLY £9.99.  There is a third decoration that can be made from this set too so it is really good value for money.  Looks great made out of glitter card, but how about using last years Christmas cards for a really 'up-cycled' Christmas!

Happy Christmas Crafting!!

The Hobby House - Bluebell Wood

Here is another cute card from The Hobby House, this time it's been taken from the Bluebell Wood set of toppers.
Co-ordinating flowers to use with this set are Mulberry Flowers Summertime Large and Mulberry Flowers Summertime.  The wings have also been 'blinged' with some ultra fine glitter to make it look even more magical!

Happy Crafting!


The Hobby House - Summertime

Here is another beautiful card using a different set of toppers from The Hobby House - Summertime
This also co-ordinates perfectly with the flowers from The Hobby House - Mullbery Flowers Summertime and Mulberry Flowers Summertime Large

Again, this one nests perfectly with the Spellbinders Nestabilities Classic Scalloped Rectangle Large die set.

The Hobby House - Silver Fairy

This beautiful card has been made using one of the pre-coloured and pre-cut toppers from The Hobby House - Silver Fairy.  These toppers are so cute and they always look good, and are a quick way to add a central focus to your cards.
This topper fits perfectly in the largest rectangle in the Spellbinders Nestabilities Scalloped Rectangles Large die set for some pretty matting and layering!

Happy Crafting!
