A couple of pages for Scraps of Elegance using Blue Fern Studios 'Montage'.

Hi there.
Busy busy busy,.... Thought I'd share two pages I made with the gorgeous November kit from my fave kit club Scraps of Elegance. This month we got lots of pretty  papers from Blue Fern Studios and flowers from Prima as well as pretty resins etc. So much to play with!

I wanted to post these earlier, but you won't believe what grey and dreary days we've had. It's been impossible to get a good shot for weeks! 
In November so far we have only had two, yes 2,.....-TWO hours of sun!! (And even then it was not much sun to speak of,....) Can you imagine?!

I used the Montage line from Blue Fern Studios from the kit to make my pages. 
Here are a few close ups.

The gorgeous blooms here are by Prima and Petaloo. 
You always get the best brands in the SOE kits!!

I thought I'd share a photo of the kit for you:

Isn't it gorgeous? And here are a couple of the add ons too:

Here is the patterned paper add on:

And the embellishment add on:

And we mustn't forget the flower add on, -always my fave ;-)

And now for my second page:

The gorgeous blue rose is from a previous kit and made by Prima for the Seashoere collection.

For my title I just took one of the printed cards from a 12x12 sheet and divided it in two.
Such a lovely quote for my bright and beautiful daughter.

Oh yes, and this picture was taken in a large sunflower field in the south of France some three or four years ago. It was such a glorious sight. 
We managed to find lavender fields too, which I of course LOVED!!

That was all for today!! Hope you are enjoying a nice and restful week end!!

Christmas card with St. Nick for Sizzix and a christmas wish list for November challenge at Papirdesign,

Don't you just love this Santa image!!

I think it's the epitome of Christmas symbols. It's a new Tim Holtz Bigz die and so fun to work with.

Lets start with the background,... I used a bought cardbase thet was 15 cm square. I cut out a 14 cm square piece of subtly patterned cardstock. To add some more interest to my simple background I wanted to emboss this piece. It was actually to large for my embossing folder, but being a bit careful I placed the bit thet had not been embossed in the folder and embossed again. It turned out quite pretty.

After cutting out he pieces for the Santa I used two different shades of chalk inkers to add some depth to them.

I backed my embossed piece with some red cardstock to pull it all together and added a small snowflake as an extra accent. I inked the snowflake carefully embellished it with a half pearl and some liguid pearl medium.

I hope you like this Santa as much as I do. 
It's a Bigz die and to me that is always an added bonus!!

Take care!!

I used these dies:
