Hi and welcome to the ‘Tis the Season’ CTMH Australasian Blog Hop. Here you’ll find a ton of inspiration using CTMH’s beautiful ‘Tis the Season paper suite.
If you’ve arrived here from Vandra’s Virtual CTMH Craftroom then you’re in the right spot. But if you just happened upon us, please enjoy the ongoing inspiration by following the link at the end of this post.
‘Tis the Season paper suite
As you may have gathered, this paper suite is all about Christmas. And I’m not even going to try and create anything but Christmasy things with it, because who can ever get enough of Christmas things?
And this suite is SO beautiful. Check out the range here;
We started the Christmas celebrations early last week, with a full day crop and Christmas card buffet.
This was the layout we provided for everyone to create, using the ‘Tis the Season paper suite, and the beautiful new Candy Apple Red ink for the title and pressy.
Along with the ‘Tis the Season paper packet, this also used the ‘Tis the Season – Scrapbooking (D1801) stamp set, the Christmas Countdown (D1799) stamp set, Christmas Script (M1209), and Red Pearls (Z4190). I’ve used New England Ivy and Fern inks to stamp the wreath, with the beautiful new Candy Apple red for the sentiment.
It was really nice for the ‘circles’ on the ‘Tis the Season stamp set to inspire both circles in my photos, and to create the wreath. Although the wreath looks a bit flash and complicated, the stamp set makes it oh so easy to complete. Here’s a close up;
So, do you want to see the ‘finished’ pages?
But wait, there’s more. You can’t just do scrapbooking with Christmas paper. At our annual crop, it’s a tradition that we also teach a couple of ‘off the page’ ideas to help with Christmas decorating.
Christmas decorations using ‘Tis the Season
So this year we had two Christmas decorations to share;
The first decoration was an idea shared by fellow consultant Patricia A Williams. If you come back next week, I’ll have a video here to share how it’s made.
The second decorations were an idea I modified from my sister consultant and friends Rachel and Creative Workshops by Rachel Stribling and Lisa Stenz at Lisa’s Creative Corner. Aren’t they just beautiful?! Both of these activities could easily be done with kids too.
Last but not least, I just had to share this gorgeous advent calendar. For my cricut owning friends, I have the instructions here for you to create this at home. CTMH have put together a kit of all the materials, to make it nice and simple.
Now I could go on, because I haven’t even started on the cards yet!! But, I know you’ve got a lot to see today as you hop around, so will leave those for another post.
So my friend, pop on over to Creating with Kara Davies for more inspiration. BUT …. before you go, I’d really love it if you could give me a wee like, or even better, leave a comment. That’ll keep the feeds coming! And if you need to do any ‘Tis the Season shopping, click HERE. 🙂
PS. Let me know if you want instructions on how to create the layout.
