Autumn Winter Mini Ends Today

Well, what a great journey it has been with the Autumn Winter Mini Catalogue! I have loved every product and have had such a great time creating beautiful cards and 3D items using the Designer Labels Framelits, the Edgelits, the Simply Scored Tool, the gorgeous Elegant Bird Die!

How I am HOPING that some of these will carry over into our new catalogue in September!!

Since July was very much a Christmas in July month, with heaps of Christmas items being made, I thought I'd finish the month with a couple more Christmas cards I have made in recent weeks.

Edgelits Christmas Ornament (1)

This cheery Christmas card is made using the Edgelits and the Framelits Dies from the Autumn Winter Mini. I have kept the background really simple because of the complexity of the ornament.

Don't you love the luxury of all that texture and the warm reds and greens?

The next card I'd like to show you has been "Cased" from dozens I have seen floating around lately. It seems there is a new fashion trend happening because everywhere I look I see "Triple Time" cards. At first I wasn't that keen to give the technique a go - just because everyone else was already jumping on the bandwagon, and because it uses a LOT of card stock - 6 layers!!!!

But then I saw this YouTube video by Dawn O, and I was inspired to give it a go. Her card is gorgeous!

As I was busy prepping Christmas in July workshops, I decided to stick with that theme. What do you think?

Vintage Vogue Triple Time card (1)

I was really pleased with how this Vintage Vogue, Cherry Cobbler and Old Olive card came up - considering I wasn't even going to give the technique a go! Glad I did!

These are great cards! I love the edgelit and framelit idea for the ornament. It looks amazing. I'm now subscribing to your blog from SC and hope you'll follow mine at http://goinovertheedge.blogspot.com.

Thanks Terry! I had a quick look at your blog (working today). Just love your blog header - I can't wait until we get MDS here in Australia so I can have a go at creating something lovely like that. I have added your blog to my favourites!
