Hearts come Home

I was recently involved in organising a get together for my fellow Stampin' Up Demos in Northern Ireland, the Northern Belles. As part of the day I was asked to provide a make 'n' take for everyone, and I decided to use one of my favourite bundles from the A/W catalogue - Hearts Come Home.
I used a sponge dauber to add some white ink to the edges of the Merry Music paper before layering it onto the mats and card base. I used my Stitched Shapes Framelits and Big Shot to cut a window through all three layers, you will need to run it through the Big Shot a few times to cut through all the layers.
I cut the front panel using one of the dies from the bundle then stamped my sentiment with Real Red ink. I then added the smallest amount of glue along the curve and to the rooftops and tree where snow would settle then sprinkled with some Dazzling Diamonds glitter to add a wintery sparkle to my card.
 
I stamped Santa and his reindeer through the window to get the positioning correct, and added some stitched ribbon to finish.

Spooky Night Mini Album

I love Halloween and I'm really looking forward to my project class featuring the Spooky Night suite from the Autumn/Winter catalogue. The suite has everything you need for your Halloween crafting including patterned paper,cardstock, jewels, crochet trim  and the cutest mini test tubes ever!!
There is also the Spooky Cat stamp set and matching punch. The stamp has a cat image but did you know that you can use the punch  to punch out the cats from the matching paper? How handy is that? 
One of the projects we will be making is this mini album featuring the Spooky Night Designer Series Paper.
I've used a retired stamp for the front cover but everything else is current.
The album is 5" x 6" and has lots of space and pockets inside for photos. I've also fussy cut lots of images from the patterned paper to decorate the inside of the album.
