CTC#248 switching up a layout for Christmas

Here we are again for another round and this week we are taking a layout from the annual catalogue and recreating it with Christmas products.

I wasn't sure about the Toile Tidings paper although I do love the colours, but it looks very different once it is made up into projects, and I quite like the simplicity of monotone projects.
 The Northern European snowy woods images don't really match our drought stricken region but I do love the page covered with leaves and berries, so I made a card using a layout that was capable of showing off the gorgeous print.

I have CASEd the layout from page 86 and rotated it to landscape. Instead of stamping the plain card layer I used the piece of DSP.
My Christmas Card class yesterday - "creative relief#2" raising money for drought relief - focused on projects using the Pine Tree Punch and the Delightful Tag Topper Punch. 
This was one of the samples showing how versatile the tag punch is to create labels as well as tags. Having holes on both ends is the perfect opportunity to use ribbon to wrap around the base. 
The little timber heart is retired but suited it perfectly and matched the layout.
The stamp set has a bright large font, although I confess I did cut the "in the New Year" from the bottom of the stamp. I can easily place it on the block if I want the sentiment but I liked if better plain. The inside uses the "from our home to yours" stamp from the same set. It's a great set to use when you want the paper to be the star of the show.
I also made the reverse green  in an alternate layout and it looks quite different.

It's good to use the catalogue for inspiration all year around.

Next this week is the very creative Julia

I hope you have a creative week and remember, 
"don't just post online,
 post something pretty!"

cheers, Liz
