Krafty Christmas card kit

So I had this gorgeous Vicki Boutin Storyteller paper and some Christmas trim and I had a big packet of Kraft card stock on my desk. I decided this is what I was going to create my Christmas cards with. While they may be non traditional, they are still somewhat Christmassy and I do love a good splash of colour on EVERYTHING! This first card being my absolute favourite with a little bit of white splattering behind (snow teehee) ! Im also a tulle lover and my local scrapbooking shop has rolls in loads of colours and I LOVE IT !
The butterfly was so perfect for the centre and if I changed up the sentiment I could use most of these cards for other occasions.
I love the red with Kraft , its so striking and with a bit of tinsel it was perfect. This card is not in the set but made at the same time.
Another card with the beautiful flower, this time backed with tinsel. The sentiments are from Uniquely Creative.
Simple and cute with this little Christmas tree cut using my Silhouette Cameo.
The reindeer is from a set of 3 dies I have, theres a family of deer in the set.
The TULLE !!!
Very untraditional with this hot pink doily in the background but it needed a POP of colour!
Another take on the Christmas tree and the POP of pink again.
And more butterflies….
Here’s the cards in a kit which is available at A Place To Create in Arana Hills, Brisbane. You can order them online.
Heres the little packets of die cut goodies you get with the kit.
So much goodness in this box, and you could easily swap out the sentiments on these cards to make them for any occasion. You even get the pre splattered backgrounds I created so you don’t have to get messy if you don’t want to. I hope you like my set of UNTRADITIONAL Christmas cards! Is that even a word? Untraditional!

Merry Christmas to you all and stay safe.x

Ocean Breeze accordion album – Uniquely Creative’s new December Collection

Well here’s something new and different from Uniquely Creative. An accordion album. The new dies are awesome, a view finder, film strip and a cute word “Great View”
Pretty beachy coloured papers made me reach for some beach photos for this one and I love how it turned out.
I added some stitching to each page before I adhered them to the album. I use Gutterman top stitch thread, its thick and lovely, but you may need to change up your sewing machine needle to a larger hole so you can easily thread it.
The sheet of burlap cuts and sews beautifully and I used it several times throughout the album.
I added some cascading photos to one page and a couple of fold out pages as well. You can view the process on you tube. I will add the link below.
Cascading photos.
Fold out page.
Theres the new die GREAT VIEW I have added to the top of my photo. I used the view finder die to make this interactive page. The fishing net stamp was used in the background.
The basketweave stamp was used in the background of this page and I used a water pen to move the oxide ink around. Oxide ink colour is MERMAID LAGOON. The corrugated card looks awesome as a background.

The film strip die is really cool, you can fill it with photos or fussy cut elements. It even looks great on its own.

Another fold out page so I could add extra photos.
The finished album ends up being quite thick.
This is the other cover of the album which is not in the video. I have used gesso and oxide inks for this cover, topped with some corrugated card and the view finder die. Some fussy cut elements from the papers and some burlap with tags from the cut a part sheet complete the look. I hope you give this album a try.
