Crop Layouts & A Few Christmas Cards

The PaperChasers first crop was Saturday 27th September... we had a lovely time... didn't get as much as i'd hoped done, but I felt soooo tired and it took me a while to even get going!

So here are the 2 layouts I have done at the crop... S for School for the boys A-Z Albums
This is Thomas the mischievious one!

This is Calum the more serious one!

In Thomas Layout I have used the acetate backing from the stamp and in Calum's I have used Stazon to stamp the image onto the acetate that was on the front of the stamp... trying to be good and recycle! The Papers are from the Basic Grey Boxer Range, photocorners are Heidi Swapp and the Smile stamp is from Kelly Panacci!

Of course it would have been so rude to not have gone for a wonder around the shop... I did get a few bits but fell in love with these stamps as soon as I saw them...

It would have been disgraceful to have left them in the shop... LOL... I have been good and already used some of them though as you can see from these Christmas Cards i've made... There are 4 cards so far and me being me... I am trying to do something different with each card!

This first card was done using HOTP Christmas papers from an old QVC TSV... the one with the stamps... I added a Forever Friends sticker that came free with the latest Bumper Issue of DoCrafts magazine!

The second card was made using the HOTP Papers again and using a Papermania (I think) 3d sticker, the silver and green actually pop out and looks so much better IRL... the Greeting is one of the Inkadinkado Warm Holiday Wishes stamp!

The third card is made using some DCWV Christmas 6x6 Stack paper, the sentiment is from the HOTP Christmas Kit coloured in using Chalk and Galaxy Marker... I love the stamped image, it has to be one of my favourites, although I have to confess I have it on the wooden block too but have never used it as I couldn't see where I was positioning it... absolutely love that they have brought it out in the clear stamp range... can see me using it so much more!

I love this fourth card... Have used DCWV Christmas papers again and the Inkadinkado Warm Holiday Wishes stamp... the Image is actually the acetate backing from the stamp as when the image is stamped it is the opposite way round, wish they brought it out in both positions as I love it!

I think that's it for now... except that I have won a Stampin Up Scalloped Edge Punch and I am absolutely over the moon as it's been absolutely forever sinec I won anything... now to decide which stamps to get with my first order... decisions decisions... they are all soooo gorgeous!
