Jingle Bells!

Happy Saturday!

It was a beautifully warm and sunny day yesterday. I was sat with the patio door ajar making Christmas cards! For us crafters Christmas starts early and I know many of you start much earlier but I'm not one of those.......

However, I couldn't wait to start creating with all the new Trimcraft Christmas collections that have been launched. The card I'm sharing today is from the Winter Blooms collection. 


I've made a gap card using a wooden frame from the collection as a focal point. I used contrasting Happy Christmas washi tape also from Trimcraft. I love washi tape and so I was really excited to get a few rolls of the stuff (it doesn't take a lot I know!).

As with many of Trimcraft's collections, they come with an array of co-ordinating items which make it so easy to create. 


I have a weekend of demos so hopefully I'll be sharing some of my samples from the other collections when I get time to take some photos. 

Enjoy your weekend,
Shabneez x

This is lovely Shabneez, and the new collection looks a delight to work with,

|Mind you, I still can't get my head around all these Christmas cards I'm seeing - give it a couple of months and maybe I'll start thinking about the Cword!

Great card! This has inspired me to use up some of those Christmas bits I've had for ages but wasn't sure what to do with them!
