cathy - Home for the holidays 7

Hello everyone! I cannot believe how quickly the time is passing. The month is nearly and over and my year at school is nearly over as well (I’m doing a happy dance atm). It feels strange creating a wintery Christmas card to share with you as Christmas in Australia is simply the opposite…as we celebrate Christmas in summer! However I couldn’t resist the wonderful images in the beautiful collection Home For the Holidays.

I love the blue tones of the papers. I created my own poinsettias using Magnolia Christmas Poinsettia dies. I applied some Ruby Rock-It Snow White Course Glitter on top of them to add some shimmer. The foliage is die cut using Tim Holtz Holiday Greens and the tag is also from the Tim Holtz Tag Collection. I incorporated my sentiment here as well which is from JustRite.

I used a Memory Box Catalina Wreath and die cut it twice. By placing it slightly off centre, it created a lovely shadow effect.

I am slowly creating my Christmas cards…I haven’t made a dent into my intended target but once school finishes and all my deadlines are met I can really get stuck in and get creating. I have ideas but sadly only 24 hours in a day (sigh).

Anyway, thanks so much for stopping by today and I hope to have more to share with you soon.

Hi! I'm Cathy. I live in Sydney and am a Primary School teacher. I am passionate about teaching and love what I do. At present paper crafts are my creative outlet, which is my other passion. I am drawn to vintage, shabby chic styled crafts which I love to create. I do enjoy other crafts such as sewing, quilting, knitting and crotchet…not enough time! I am always inspired to learn and to try new techniques in both teaching and my crafts. I love Maja Design papers and enjoy creating with them.
