Simply Create DT

Morning folks...at long last I've managed to play with my Simply Create DT kit instead of just opening the box and looking at it......yummy Echo Park Papers and a huge sheet of stickers from the "Everybody Loves Christmas" collection ..buttons... ribbons and a Hero Arts Christmas stamp.....here's what I made...

Poinsettia Wall Hanging
a great excuse to use this huge red button which measures 5cm across



cute Hero Arts Snowy House

would you believe that there are quite a few Sticker Snobs out there...oh yes I have had lots of folks over the years say to me that it's not proper card making if you use stickers....what utter tosh and although I am first and foremost a stamper....don't discount the humble sticker....it's a great way of getting ahead of the game and making some quick and easy cuties....ideal if you do craft fairs....school fetes and of course perfect for making my favourite scraplings.....



and I still have loads left over to play with but not today....I'm having a "cut loose and have fun day"...taking a little trip out to my favourite craft store just to deliver my DT stuff you understand and to meet up with my favourite bloggy buds Anne and Debbi for a coffee and a fancy piece....loads of chat of a crafty nature no doubt and of course a little bit of a crafty spend.
Only
154
more sleeps until I am in the same room as you know who!!!
Catch up with you all tomorrow....Hugs Kath xxx

OMW girl, what a busy bee you've been! Just how much was in that box for goodness sake?! Superb creations, every one of them, but my fave is the Hero Arts cottage. Makes me want to be tucked up inside it in front of a roaring log fire while the wild wind blows the snow past the windows .....Hugs, Sxx

Hi Kath
Beautiful cards and what lovely stickers. I agree they are a great way of getting ahead, and especially when you have to make a load quick for the school stalls. The Christmas poinsettia is gorgeous. Hope you have a lovely day. Love Em x

Clare H said...

love the poinsettia, can you do a mini tutorial on how to make one?

Julie said...

All your cards are fab and the poinsettia looks great. Very inspirational.

Kat said...

Lucky you having a trip to Alford. Wish I could get my stuff finished and go there but I think it's going to be delivered on the 2nd! I've just wasted 3 hours looking for a photo to do a layout! I have one and I can see exactly what the other one looks like, just can't find it anywhere. Guess I'll need to think again!!

I may need to check out these papers you used here. I've got the MME ones which are also gorgeous.

See you soon,

Kat xx

WOW, girl, you have been creating up a storm - I guess that box of goodies inspired you big time! LOVE that poinsettia - it really shows off the pretty papers. And all of the cards, too - each one a little treasure.

Anna said...

That wall hanging is AMAZING! Any chance you could show us what shape the pieces were before you rolled them? :)

Sarah A said...

Fabulously creative makes as usual, stickers definitely have their place in the big worlg of craft... there are snobs in every hobby! A bit like saying a golfer isn't a proper one unless he wears a Pringle T-shirt lol!
