Foil Snowflakes – So Much More Than Christmas

The 2017 Holiday Catalogue brings us a great assortment of new lovelies to play with.

One of my favourite embellishments are the Foil Snowflakes.

Being in the southern hemisphere, I’m not so much of a snowflake girl for Christmas cards, but the most wonderful thing about the Foil Snowflakes is that they are more like another version of a metallic doily than anything else.  So, they are perfect for all your card making needs.

They come in gold & silver, have a fantastic weight to them and the reverse side is white, which means (although I haven’t tried yet), you could probably tint them any colour.

We used them on this bright & fun card at last week’s demonstrator card class – on a {BIRTHDAY} card!!!

The stamp set is Paint Play – one of my new additions from the Annual Catalogue.

I’ve used the silver ‘snowflake’ in this card.  You can see the gold one in action on a Christmas card from yesterday’s CASEing the Catty project.

If you haven’t yet ordered a packet (or 6) of these gorgeous doilies snowflakes, then head over to my online store.  It’s open 24-7 and ready to help out with all your stamping needs.

CASEing the Catty #130 Favourite Project – Occasions Catalogue

Hello!  This is the final post of my day!

If you’re a regular follower of my blog, I hope you’ve enjoyed all the fabulous inspiration on this wonderful Sunday.

3 blog hops in one afternoon is quite the flood!  #sorrynotsorry


Both the 2016-2017 Annual Catalogue and Occasions 2017 catalogues retired on Wednesday night.

And from Thursday 1st June, we’ll be exclusively enjoying the 2017-2018 Annual Catalogue and the wonderful pages of a fresh new catalogue to CASE!

But first, one last look at the 2017 Occasions catalogue – and our favorite projects.

I have selected the Window Box Framelit as my Occasions Catalogue favourite.

I was delighted to find out that this was carrying over and will be available in the .

The hexagon shaped box is wonderful, but really, it’s all the embellishment dies that I love.

And the sample on the front cover of the Occasion Catalogue is a perfect example of this!

Love, love, love the patterns you can make for boxes – and cards – using the dies in this set!

I’ve been inspired by a 3D item – the hexagon box – and created a card using this concept.
