Teresa Collins 'Nine & Co" collection.

Hello everyone,

Sue here with another card using this lovely collection. These papers are perfect for card makers but they have some great sheets that can be trimmed and used in Journals/Project Life too.

  • Add a 1" strip to either side of a white card base.
  • Stamp the word LOVE to a scrap of coordinating DSP and die cut it using a small die.
  • Using Dries Clear adhesive, adhere the arrow over a 3 inch panel of DSP.
  • Using two foam adhesive squares add the stamped die cut over the arrow.
  • Stamp a small heart just below the die cut. Add two overlapping sequins to complete the panel.
  • Adhere the completed panel to the card front, popping up on foam adhesive squares.

Thanks for taking a look today :)

"Night before Christmas" layout- by Narelle

Hi Everyone-  

When I saw the sheets of "Twas the night before Christmas paper" in the Graphic 45 packs I knew instantly that I wanted to get to them with a craft knife and create a 3D frame style layout.  I hope when you look at the close up photos below, you'll be inspired to create one too!

  1. Use 2 sheets of  the "Twas the night before Christmas paper" paper for this layout, and one sheet of "Long Winter's Nap".  A piece of cardstock as a background will also help with stability for the layout.
  2. For the first layer, using a craft knife and metal ruler, trim across the top of the wording, and around the edges of the stamps.
  3. For the seconds layer, use the green words as the border to trim around, but  carefully leave the holly in place (see image below for examples)
  4. Adhere the background paper, then a 5x7 photo (placing the next layer over the top to work out the photo position so it will be tucked under the four stamp corners.)
  5. Adhere the second layer using foam tape.
  6. Adhere the third layer, again using foam tape.
  7. Carefully cut out extra pieces from the left over paper to raise us, such as extra stamps us holly, and adhere with helmar liquid scrap dots to give variations in the height on the layout.
  8. Add a year or title if required with the alphabet sticker sheet.
