As always, we get to CASE (Copy and Selectively Edit) the guest.

I chose this project of Paulas to CASE.


This one in particular because it was a christmas card and I am LOVING the products from the new 2016 Holiday Catalogue.

So here is what I made:


I LOVE everything about this card of Paulas....the colour combo, the layout, and the design.
Plus it was another excuse to use new products from the 2016 Holiday Catalogue.

Best part is the products I have used come in a Bundle so they coordinate.
Thank you for stopping by to check out my project.
A list of the items I have used to make this card feature below.

Strawberry Sketches #SS010


Hi everyone!
YAY..my fave time of the week...

Sarah has once again set us the challenge of designing and creating a card with a sketch as the base.

Here is this weeks sketch:


and here is what I came up with


This would have to be my favourite suite from the new 2016 Holiday Catalogue.
"Candy Cane Lane".

The pairing of Real Red and Crumb Cake are a match made in heaven..they just go so well together and are perfect for christmas.

Of course no card is complete without a bit of bling......so on this card I decided to bling the stocking......why not!

This is the first time I have used the Christmas Stockings Bundle and I will definitely be using it again.

Thank you for stopping by to check out my project.
A list of the supplies I have used is listed below.

Until next time
Happy Stamping

Strawberry Sketches #SS009


Hi everyone!
It's my favourite time of the week again.....time for the Strawberry Sketches sketch challenge.

Again, it's a great excuse to use the new Holiday Catalogue products,
so I have created another christmas card.

Here is this weeks Sketch:


Here is what Sarah made:



and here is what I made:


I absolutely adore Cherry Cobler and Crumb Cake together!
A little bit of bling to finish it off and you have a simple christmas card.

I stamped the tree in white ink and then embossed it with the white embossing powder.
I really enjoyed making this card.

Thanks to Sarah for providing another great sketch.

A list of the supplies I used is listed below.

Thank you for checking out my project.
Until next time

Crazy Crafters Blog Hop with Sarah Berry


Thank you for joining us for another Crazy Crafters August Blog Hop.
If you haven't joined us before, Welcome!

You may have just come from the previous person or you may be starting here at my blog Michelle Mills. If you lose your way and get off track, there is a full list of this hops participants at the bottom of this post.

I hope as you hop around you find lots of ideas and inspiration for your projects.

For this hop, our special guest is U.K. Demo Sarah Berry of
www.stampwithsarah.co.uk

As always, we get to CASE (Copy and Selectively Edit) the guest.

I chose this project of Sarahs to CASE.


and here is what I came up with


I loved the simplicity of the layout with a feature piece up the top and in the middle and a simple sentiment below it also centered.

With that in mind to recreate, I used my fave technique for the background - watercoloring with the Aqua Painter and just changed the feature piece up a bit by using a different die.
I do like the Swirly Die set and haven't used it nearly enough.
But it looked quite baron just on its own.
I then had the idea of adding a small center piece to the Swirly accent from the Paisleys & Petals Bundle from the new Holiday Catalogue.

I don't usually use dies from two different sets on the one card, however, I think it has worked this time.

I'm really happy with how its turned out.

Thank you for stopping by to check out my project.
Below is a list of materials I used to make this card.

Until next time
