2020 August-December Mini Catalogue

Tonight I have a Christmas card and ornament to share with you. I love this Trimming the Town Designer Series Paper and it makes the most gorgeous decorations to hang on your tree this festive season. This paper is part of the 15% off sale on right now!


Here is my card predominantly using the DSP with very little stamping; in fact the car and the wreath on the house are the only stamped images.

To go with my card is this Shaker Ornament using the same suite

Using 3 sizes of circle dies, you will need to cut the following pieces;
Largest die: Blue base (pictured with ribbon), the blue ring (top piece), Foam Sheet, DSP
Middle die: Foam sheet & Window Sheet
Smallest die: cut the centre of the top piece & cut the centre of the foam sheet

Glue the ribbon to the base piece (shown above) then glue the DSP circle over the top. I cut out some of the trees and house from another piece of the DSP and glued these on, along with a stamped sentiment.

Glue the window sheet onto the blue ring

Place the foam circle on top of the window sheet.

Add some tiny clear beads to the centre of the ornament and very carefully place the above piece on top.

Then tie a bow and add it to the top to finish it off.

Have I inspired you to make some decorations for your tree this Christmas?

  1. Kate I love your shaker ornament but the thing I think I appreciate the most are your textured snowy paths leading to the houses. Such a cool idea and they really add to the very cute Christmas scene.
