Paradise

I was watching a video over at 2P's called Scrap Your Stash, where they challenge you to use up your stash (and I really do need to!). This weeks challenge was to use up your Christmas goodies and I have a lot left over from my (unfinished) DD so I thought I would have a go. I had been thinking about the newest Colour Challenge from ScrapFriends but couldn't work out how to approach it so when I bought the two ideas together they worked perfectly. I also used a sketch from I Lowe Scrap so the whole layout came together very quickly for me.


This was also my first attempt at sewing on chipboard. 


So the christmas goodies I am using here are the Crate Paper Sleigh Ride 6x6 papers, some Echo Park brads, an old October Afternoon label from two years ago and a Lily Bee Christmas Cheer journal card. The bit I am most proud of are the little arrows, they are the little christmas trees from the Studio Calico Wonderland wood veneer and I "pruned" the tops off. 


Don't forget that my Etsy store is having a 25% off sale, just use the code IG25OFF when you check out.

Thanks for stopping by,
