Watercolor Christmas, The Crafty Carrot Co Blog Hop

The Crafty Carrot Co team know just how busy the holiday season can be!  Quick projects are good projects at this time of year!  That's why we are recommending the Watercolor Christmas Card Kit this month.  With it's pre-printed elements and pre-prepared card bases it's perfect for creating a bunch of handmade Christmas cards in minutes!

But of course, our Crafty Carrot monthly programs are all about variety and inspiring creativity!  So we are all putting this kit to good use in a heap of different ways and we can't wait to share our ideas with you all.

For today's blog hop, I've used the kit elements to do a little memory keeping.  These pictures are from Christmas two years ago.  I'm so grateful they are now printed and in the album! 

I paired the pre-printed patterned card bases and elements with the coordinating Watercolor Christmas stamp set to embellish these pocket pages.

I just love the watercoloured look to these accents!

3D Holiday Ideas, Fancy Friday Blog Hop

Hi all! It's so great to be back with the Fancy Friday blog hop team to share with you some '3D' inspiration.  Today I'm showing you how to add a simple 3D effect to a card with a little creative die cutting.

In my design here, I've cut the star shape from the very classy silver 'Year of Cheer' pattern and re-attached it through the centre, giving the sides a lift.  It makes for a subtle, yet impressive touch of dimension.  I've decorated with imagery from the Merry Patterns Stamp Set you can pick up absolutely FREE at the moment!  Contact me to book your very own girls night in. Learn more *HERE*.

I went ahead and made a little gift tag to match! Next month I'm going to feature these designs in a huge Paper Craft Party.

P.S.  you're invited!  I hope you can come.  Learn more *HERE*.

I hope that you've enjoyed this project!  Please do click the link below to see the holiday inspiration the amazing Fancy Friday team have to share with you.  Next up is my talented friend Susan Wong.

Fairy Celebration

Fairy Celebration, Peekaboo Peach, Watercolor, Stampin' Up!, Papercraft by Jennifer Frost

I love that the Global Design Project are featuring Stampin' Up!'s peach and tangerine tones in their challenge this week.  Orange is such a joyful, warm, vibrant colour!

I am not usually drawn to colour challenges but as soon as I saw this one I thought of the fun Fairy Celebration stamp set and couldn't resist having a play.

I made this card for a new customer who ordered with me for the first time this month.  I cut the words from a couple of sentiments from the set to get the right meaning.

Don't forget, all customers will receive free access to next month's exclusive Crafty Carrot Co Labels of Love online program!
