Sarah Packer – Christmas on Carnaby Street

It’s Sarah here today!  I’m loving using embossing powders on cut files at the moment and this one is no exception!!  I have used the Paige Evans Lightstrand Background cut file (pre cut in white, cream or black) in white and used a lovely rich gold embossing powder to make it more Christmassy and to fit in with the theme of my page. Pretty My Page Paige Evans Lightstrand Echo Park Nov 18 2 - Sarah Packer - Christmas on Carnaby Street

Once I had heat embossed the cut file, I then back filled the bulbs with an Echo Park Christmas range I bought last year! Nothing like a bit of stash busting eh?!

I loved the colours in this range and they totally fitted with the all the bright colours in my photos of the Carnaby Street Christmas lights and decorations which I took last year. I do love a trip in to London to look at the Christmas lights!

Once they were all filled, I raised the cut file up on foam pads and stuck it to some black cardstock to make it pop! I then mounted my 2 photos on some of the leftover papers and stuck them to the cut file. I didn’t use too many embellishments on this page, as the lights were enough. I just used a couple of stickers from the Echo Park range, some wood veneer pieces, sequins and some Heidi Swapp Gold Colour shine. For the title I used some glittery gold Thickers.

COVID 19 UPDATE – Unfortunately I am currently unable to process any further physical cut file orders for at least the next 2 weeks.  The logistics of dealing with the new and necessary restrictions, while also homeschooling my children and caring for my Dad, mean that it is becoming more and more difficult and the restrictions may even become tighter as we seek to control this awful situation.  Obviously I’m keeping a close watch on the news so that I can start processing and posting again as soon as possible.  You can still browse and order but they will not go out in the post until there is a further update.

Digital orders can still be purchased and instantly downloaded as normal and remain unaffected by the restrictions.  However, there is a slight glitch on the website that means some devices are duplicating items as they are added to the basket.  You can remove them in the final screen and I can obviously organise speedy refunds for any that slip through the net.

Thank you so much for your continued support for Pretty My Page.  Every order and message is so important to me but even more so now.  Wishing you all health and happiness x
