Hi Papercrafters

'It's Beginning to Look a Lot Like Christmas'

Today, just for a change, I have created a Scrapbook Layout, quick and simple with a video that you can watch so that you too can have fun creating with me!

I am have so much fun with this collection from Ultimate crafts and I feel so merry and bright when creating with it!

This simple layout would make a great gift as it is easy to pop the photo on later. Maybe you can create this layout in advance for a special photo that you plan to take over the coming festive season?

Here are a couple of pics to get you inspired!

So time to play, I hope you enjoy my video and have fun using this wonderful paper collection which has so many possibilities!

Christmas Trio by Anita Enright

#artdecocreations   #couturecreationsaus    #ultimatecrafts  

Hi Everyone, Anita with you today sharing a trio of cards that I have made using the gorgeous range from Ultimate Crafts  It's Beginning to Look A Lot Like Christmas.  
I love the traditional colours used in this range.

These cards were very easy and quick to construct which is what we all want when we have to create multitudes to send out to special family and friends.

Alrighty then, lets check out the cards.

Card 1

Card one is a tri-fold card which I absolutely love.

 To start, I cut a 6" x 12" piece of Ultimate Crafts Cardstock in Paper Bag, scoring it at 3" and 6". 
Next I selected the patterned papers from the 12x12" paper pad.  I just loved the check so had to go with that mounted on some more of the Ultimate Crafts Cardstock this time in Garnet red.
I then selected two coordinating cards from the back of the paper pad which were also mounted on the red cardstock.

I then die cut the poinsettias in the red cardstock and holly leaves in Battle Fatigue cardstock along with the  Merry Christmas die using some of the gorgeous Matte Gold Mirror Board. Finally I added a few gold baubles to the poinsettias it was finished.
Oh, on the reverse I also added a piece of white smooth card to enable the sender to add a Christmas wish to the recipients.


For my second card I used the white square card set.  I cut the green patterned paper the same size as the card base. I distressed the edges of both pieces of patterned paper.

 Again I used the poinsettia and holly dies and also used the Cardinal die but only used the little bird.

I also cut two of the Merry Christmas dies.  One of the two die cuts I added gold foil to. Because I used the textured size of the cardstock, the foil ended up a little blotchy, however I loved the end result.  The second die cut was slightly offset against the gold foiled one.

I added a fussy cuts flower and some twine, along with the gold baubles to finish off the card.


I again used the square card base set from Couture Creations.
Next I selected two patterned papers to match with the square card I chose from the back
of the paperpad. Again I distressed the edges of the patterned papers.

I chose one of the gorgeous chipboard pieces that forms part of the Let Every Day Be Christmas collection and foiled it using some of the mirror finish red foil.

Taking some match satin ribbon I foiled the ribbon using a matching foil along with the holly die. 
It added another dimension to the ribbon.

Finally I die cut the holly die in some of the matte gold Mirror Board and added some ready baubles.

All cards are relatively simple but have all turned out beautiful.

Season’s Greetings Christmas Cards by Adriana Bolzon

#artdecocreations   #couturecreationsaus    #ultimatecrafts  

Hi everyone, Adriana here today I am sharing some Christmas cards that I have created with some of the new release products from 
Artdeco Creations - Couture Creations - Ultimate Crafts -
"It's Beginning to look like Christmas".  

All the products I used to create these cards are listed at the end 
of this blog post.

Together with the Go Press and foil Machine, I will be showing some techniques with foiling and stamping. I created a couple of cards which I will share at the end of my blog post today but today I have a step by step tutorial for my first card. I wanted to show you all how you can incorporate some foiling and stamping on your projects. They really work fabulously together, I am sure you will love the effect it gives.
So here is my card for today.

"Season's Greetings" by Adriana Bolzon

Details and close ups photos of the pine-cones and foiling cluster on my card.

Using the 
It's Beginning to look like Christmas" 
Cardinal Feathers ULT158337 Hot-foil stamp  along with
Couture Creations - Go Press and foil Machine

I foiled the Cardinal Feathers ULT158337 hot foil stamp twice,
 back to back with my favourite Foil colour
Rose Gold Vintage Matte CO725694 using the Go Press and foil Machine.

 Using the pine leave stem stamp from the 
"It's beginning to look like Christmas" 
 "Cardinal & Poinsettia" ULT158303 stamp set.

I stamped over the foiled images with a green inked.

Then using the pinecone stamp from the 
"It's beginning to look like Christmas" 
 "Cardinal & Poinsettia" ULT158303 stamp set.

I stamped these on white card stock, cut them out and inked the edges.
Creating a cluster of pinecones and leaves with the
Couture Creations "Let Everyday Be Christmas" 
Christmas Branches decorative die CO725508

Adding a bit of twine and Red Gemstones around the cluster.

Finishing off the card with another foiled sentiment using the
It's Beginning to look like Christmas - ULT158335 
Season's Greetings hotfoil stamp, using the Go Press and Foil Machine. This a fabulous one to buy as it comes with two hot foil stamps. This set and candle could be used for other occasions.

Matting the foiled sentiment on to a piece of 
Matte Bronze Mirror Foil card stock CO725408
and also
adding another stamped image on the pine leaves on the side.

As promised more Christmas cards created with the same stamps and
Hot foil stamps together with the Go Press and Foil Machine.

and here is another one
just using the stamps no foiling.

Let Every Day Be Christmas - Showcase of Creations by our Design Team

#artdecocreations   #couturecreationsaus    #ultimatecrafts  

Welcome Back Everyone.

With Christmas getting closer and closer we thought we would put together a little showcase of the gorgeous creations our Design Team have created over the last couple of months with our 
Let Every Day Be Christmas range designed by Tina Higgins.

This range moves away from the traditional colours of Christmas but you will see there are a couple of projects below that are not Christmas related.  By just focusing on the gorgeous flowers in the range you can use it for any type of project by just selecting the pieces that suit.

So let's take a look at our Design Team's work so far with the range. Oh, and don't forget the gorgeous sampler from Sue Smyth too.

If you love the projects below, click on the girls names under the pictures and you will be taken directly to their blog posts.

Stock of this gorgeous collection is available at your local papercraft store.
Don't hesitate because once they are gone they are gone.

Until tomorrow, happy crafting everyone.
