Design team makes..Use your Christmas stash all year
Hello everyone...Genny here. As with everyone, the first months after Christmas seem to involve paying a lot of bills with a small amount of money. So I have begun to look at my Christmas stash, searching for ways to get even more out of it.
The hanging that I have made above was based on a Christmas bauble shape which was made in MDF.I loved the shape and thought that it would be perfect to make a decoration for my bedroom. I painted it with purple acrylic and then added a stamped image which I had coloured with purple and pink. I coloured the stamped image with my promarkers. I then added flowers to the top and a triple bow to the bottom. I finally added 3 sequin butterflies in purple. Of ourse you could make some thing similar in your favourite colour ways.
Both the cards below are made using a Christmas paper pad.This pad is produced by First Edition and is called Silent Night. I got my pad from Julies shop.I.'m sure that Julie has a wide range available. When looking through the pad at the wonderful papers, I suddenley realised that apart from probably 3, the rest could easily be used all year round.
I used two of my Inkylicious stamps featuring some lovely words as the focal point and decorated them with other items from my stash. They make great cards to send to friends..for no other reason than you are thinking of them
I hope that you liked my makes and that you will take a look at your craft stash a little differently. So until next time..take care and happy crafting.
