Happy First Birthday Christmas Crafting!

Winter Fairy Joy Fold Card

This month we are celebrating our first birthday over at Christmas Crafting-where has the time gone! Thanks to all of you who have taken part in the last 12 months and we hope we can count on you for your continued support. As part of our celebrations we have decided to have a blog hop around our very talented Design Team! We have four prizes up for grabs so definitely worth taking part! If you have arrived here from Debbie's blog then you are hopping in the right direction. If not then please return to the Christmas Crafting blog to start again.

All you have to do to be in with a chance of winning one of these fabulous prizes is to visit each blog in order, leaving a comment as you go, and then returning to the Christmas Crafting Challenge blog and leaving a final comment letting us know what you love about Christmas. On 1st August we will randomly draw four comments to win the prizes.

To continue with the hop, you now need to visit Darcy's blog.

Good luck and thanks for joining us at Christmas Crafting this month.

Exciting isn't it!  The cool colors and frosty theme I have used in my card this month seemed very fitting considering how cold it is here in South Australia!  The gorgeous little fairy is by Mo Manning, the papers are by Kaisercraft and the image has been colored with a combination of Lyra and Prismacolor pencils on Kraft card and it's been put together using a "Joy" fold technique I found on Split Coast Stampers.

Purple Christmas Card


Hi again! It's challenge time once again at Christmas Crafting, and this month the theme we were asked to work with was purple.  Our adorable digi's were kindly supplied by Sassy Studio's Digital Stamps, and this lovely lady is called First Snow.

I have to admit this is probably the most challenging month for me to date, I went through my stash and realized I didn't have one - not one - purple piece of designer paper, Gah!  So I worked with what I had and created a clean and simple design, I hope you like :o)   

I have used the Nestabilities Heirloom Die (2011) to create the frame around the digi, which has been coloured with a combination of both Copics and Prismacolor pencils, and finished with a little embossing and a sprinkle of Stickles.
