I’ve used the Holly and part of the Candy Cane Stripe Border.

I pulled out some Shimmerz original paints which are packed full of chunky mylar glitter.  I painted a wobbly line in red making sure it was wider than the stripe border cut file and that the edges were uneven and interesting.  Whilst that was drying I painted both parts of the holly cut file.

I stamped a small greeting above the red paint line using StickerKitten’s Alpaca Wishes stamp set.  I also added a few gold paint splatters… gold paint is always a good idea on Christmas crafts!  I cut small strips of foam adhesive and attached it to the back of the border and adhered it above the red paint.  The final step is layering up the holly pieces slightly offset and adhering them over the border carefully popping up any pieces that need support with more foam adhesive.

Due to ongoing health and personal issues, I’m afraid I am closing the shop for 6 months.  I very much hope to be back but I will only be able to judge this once I have gone through the next few months.  All outstanding orders will go out next week (commencing 15th June).  I will be keeping the blog side of the website going and I may pop up on social media sometimes but I may have to take a fair bit of time out while I process everything and work through treatments etc.  I know that particularly my pre-cut customers will be disappointed and I am so sorry to let people down but sometimes being strong involves having to give something up.  It’s not been an easy decision I can tell you.  Thank you so much to everyone that has supported me in the last 4 years, in particular my wonderful design team.  Seeing my designs on layouts capturing people’s precious memories is something I will always treasure.  Best wishes xx
