Season's Greeting, Be Merry and Bright with some Anna Griffin too!!

Hello everyone!!

Thank you for coming to see what I've been up too ;)
I have been having a bit of fun with the new collections for 

Couture Creations 
and Ultimate Crafts

So many papers, and decorative dies ..

I started with some projects with the recently released

Seasons Greetings  collection

Recycled project, Battery tealight 'Luminary'

I go through Quick Release paper by the box so I figured I would put the BOX to good use too!
I die cut the 'Fireplace' , adhered Acetate behind the die and coloured with 'Liquid Drops 3d Pearls'
Just remember to leave a hole to turn the candle off and on!

'Be Merry and Bright'  Advent Calendar

I've used all white matchboxes but you could used printed ones and cover them all with patterned paper - you could even die cut some cute boxes, envelopes or containers to add some small gifts or sweets too! Remember when you adhere them to a back board you need to be able to open them to put the gifts in and to get them out too!!

Mixed a little Pigments powder with the Embossing Paste - you can add a couple of colours to get the tone you need - the Paste dries super quick!!
The 3d stars are easy - just fold in half at each point, then mountain/valley - 
I picked out all the pretty purpley pinks from the collection!!
