'Cherish' Mixed media layout

HAPPY Monday!
Today I share my December projects for 2 Crafty Chipboard

With 2 Crafty have a range of FANTASTIC Christmas chipboard, First up is this layout I created  using just a couple of Christmas pieces...


2 Crafty Chipboard:

I also have a created a VIDEO tutorial!

I don't like to waste and I'm always trying to think of another way to use up the
 negative/leftover chipboard pieces...  
So I thought this would be a GREAT way to some of these pieces.... πŸ˜€

SO! I Create some Christmas cards...

Firstly I wanted to show the base set up my Christmas cards, as you can see I've used the
 same basic design, just used a different color and negative chipboard pieces..

Then adding these 2 Crafty Chipboard
Merry Christmas Script card pack & Mini Reindeers

and a couple of other bits created these.... 

Left the Merry Christmas Script words raw.....

The Mini Reindeers have a coat of gesso and a dusting of
Tim Holtz - Clear rock candy Distress Glitter...

More Than Words December Main Challenge

OMG! 😲 December already.... 
Where has this year gone? 
More Than Words December challenge has been revealed!
& what a GREAT challenge it is....

Word Inspiration - TRADITIONS
Creative Challenge - HANDMADE

What does the word TRADITIONS inspire you to create?
You can choose to add the word somewhere on your project or simply be inspired to create from it. Please explain in your blog post how the word inspired you,
if not already obvious.

For our creative challenge this month, we would like you to go HANDMADE!
In this day and age, the stores are full of ready-made embellishments for all your crafting needs. But remember the good old times when you started scrapbooking and everything was Do-It-Yourself?  Take out your scissors, punches, stamps, scraps of papers, ribbons, etc and create your very own handmade embellishment. You can either create your own flower, a layered sticker or a special tag to add on your project.  Anything goes... as long as it was handmade by you!


"One of the few TRADITIONS we have going on around Christmas time is jumping in the car on Christmas eve and driving around our local town to check out all the Christmas decorations and lights. Also! used the word TRADITION as a title....

2 Crafty Chipboard - Christmas light strands and Mini Christmas Bauble..

And 2 Crafty Chipboard -  Festive music notes.... 
Kaisercraft papers & background stamps! 

Hope you get a chance to play along!
