It’s a Magical Time of Year! JAI275

Christmas is such a magical time of year and apart from birthdays, it’s probably the biggest card giving occasion on the calendar.

The 2015 Holiday Catalogue launches in a couple of weeks and I was lucky enough for Mr Australia Post to deliver me a box of goodies last week.  It’s been a chaotic week here at papercraft HQ, so it took me until yesterday to open the box and play with my new products.

My first Christmas play for 2015 involved the Softly Falling 6’x6″ embossing folder and the super cute Sleigh Ride / Jingle All the Way bundle.

I started with the Just Add Ink sketch:

And used my favourite new colour combination – Mint Macaron, Tip Top Taupe & Gold to create a classy Christmas creation.

What do you think?  I like this for a Christmas colour theme!

When I skimmed through the catalogue and added the Sleigh Ride edgelits to my pre-order I had assumed it was Santa and one of his reindeers.  I had to have a second look when I started using it yesterday and realised that the reindeer was actually a horse.  This seemed a little strange to me, but after consulting some fellow demos, it seems the horse & sleigh is referencing Jingle Bells (oh what fun it is to ride on a one-horse open sleigh!).  It seems much more sensible now!!!  Thanks Elle (faelixmakes.com) for clearing that up.

There are so many magical new products to choose from that I am already making my list for the rest of the products I want when the catalogue goes live on 1st September.  I have catalogues to give you too, so make sure I hand one over next time I see you.  You’ll want to place your order nice & early in September so you have lots of time to make cards for your favourite people (and give the practice ones to your less favourite!).  Kelly x

 

Products to look forward to…

Available to order 1st September 2015

  1. Fabulous take on the JAI sketch Kelly. This is so cool, l love that you’ve minimized the diecuts, it’s a great effect. Thanks for playing.

  2. I LOVE THIS Kelly! Fantastic colour combo and I love the gold of the houses and the dramatic black for the sleigh and horse (I too didn’t realise it was a horse it yesterday), it makes them pop right off the card and really stand out! Its a fantastic take on this weeks sketch. Thanks for playing along this week at Just Add Ink. Rochelle xo
