Christmas Shades...

Happy Thursday,

I'm sorry this post is a couple of days late I had planned to sneak peak the my new Christmas Shades paper pad on Tuesday however I wanted to make the projects in each colour and that proved more time consuming than I thought!

To start with the first picture is a collection made with just a few of the Soft Berry shade of papers form the pad.  I have made a Large gift bag, Pillow box, Christmas Card and a small gift bow.  I have also used, of course,m a selection of the stamp release as well!

I thought It would be fun to introduce the pad by making one of my favourite things a box and to do it, as shown, in every colour.  The colours are Soft Berry, Amethyst, Soft Gold, Sapphire, Ice Blue & Soft Holly.  As usual I have matched these to as many Creative Expressions ranges as possible so that you can easily match your products to make beautiful creations of your own.

These small gift boxes were the perfect idea for me to show the different colourways as well as how I have teamed Creative Expressions  double sided satin ribbon to the colours.

Shown here are the Soft shades and below the Modern shades hopefully giving maximum crafting possibilities.  I also wanted to make the pad multiuse so some of the patterns can be used all year round in fact there is only one design that says Christmas!

Another sneak peak tomorrow,

Enjoy...

  35. Good morning John,
    What beautiful colours John that you have put together in the paper pad, although you really need at least 2 pads, 1 to use and well one just to look at. Do these pads follow exact colours of say the pearl drops and embossing powders i wonder. Thank you flower for a lovely selection to tempt us with once more,
    love and crafty hugs
