I've been saving up my Candlelight Christmas papers as they are so lovely - in particular this flocked acetate - and almost too good to use. However they are no good in the box so here is the card I've made for my Mum and Dad which also uses early expresso tuille,an antique brad, greetings of the season stamp set and apothecary accents framelits.
One of the huge advantages of Stampin Up products is the colour co-ordination and this card showcases that perfectly with just 3 colours - real red, very vanilla and early expresso.
I've been pretty busy this week making lots of things. Last Friday I went to my first ever WI meeting. It was great and we made bath bombs so I came home and made lots more plus pretty boxes to put them in. I do have a tendancy to get obsessed by making different things and buying all the supplies necessry for a new craft so I am trying very hard to restrain myself from getting every essential oil going. That's one lesson I learnt after the fire - don't buy stuff you are not going to use imminently ! Lets see if I can be firm with myself.
