Its Beginning to Look a Lot Like Christmas....

Hello everyone,
Tarrah here with you today to show you how I created a festive layout using the gorgeous FabScraps Christmas range and also using the beautiful FabScraps Christmas Chipboard pieces.

Products Used: FabScraps Christmas Chipboard 'Reindeer' and 'Merry' word
                        FabScraps Christmas 'Bells and Whistles' Paper
                        FabScraps Christmas 'Victorian Angels' Paper
                        FabScraps Christmas 'Little Children' Paper
                        FabScraps Christmas 'Santa's Little Helper' Paper
                        FabScraps Pearls and Brads
                        X-Press It Clear Gel
                        X-Press It 6MM Double Sided Tape
                        X-Press It Glue Marker

I started by trimming my papers to size and placing them where I wanted them. I also used some tape as well.

I used a scallop punch for the edges of the 'Santa's Little Helper' paper..

I wanted a nice shiny finish on my chipboard pieces so I chose a metallic gold colour and you will see in the finished layout that it goes well with the Santa throne in my photo.

I used a brown ink to colour him and then used a red pearl for his nose..

The chipboard nice and dry now...

I adhered some FabScraps pearls on to my layout with the fabulous X-Press It Glue Marker

I matted my photo on to black cardstock.....see the gold on the throne? 

Here is my finished layout.....the gold chipboard really sets off my photo of my eldest son when he was just 3 years old sitting on Santa's knee!!!! 

Thanks so much for stopping by the FabScraps blog today, I hope I have inspired you to create something festive!!
I would like to wish all our lovely followers and their families a very Merry Christmas and a safe and happy New Year ahead.
Take care...

It’s A Cracker Of A Christmas

Hi everyone, Sharmaine here with a really quick Christmas Craft idea.
Products I have used:
FabScraps Christmas Flowers
FabScraps Victorian Angels paper
FabScraps Pearl Brad
X-Press It 6mm Double Sided tape
Did you know that FabScraps have die cut packs that come with instructions??
I mean, how easy does that make things?!
I like easy and I like it when it doesn’t take too much time.
Enter Christmas Crafting Day 1 and the FabScraps Christmas flowers
These gorgeous Christmas flowers come pre-cut and the instructions make it really easy to make your own flowers.
I just pushed out a few, using the various sizes and colours, and topped them off with a pearl brad.
EASY (and super quick)
Next up I decided to use my cutting machine and make a Christmas cracker.
Again super quick and easy.
I’ve used the “Victorian Angels” paper, found in the Christmas range from FabScraps
The paper is a great weight, perfect for the cracker, and the print is gorgeous.
I then constructed the cracker and added the FabScraps Christmas flower.
Quick, easy… love!
AND FabScraps also has a line of die cut (with instructions) to make your own Christmas Crackers!! How cool is that?!
I just love the little things that makes crafting a breeze, especially at this time of year!
Don’t you?
