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.

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
