Heart of Christmas - Week 5



Hello and welcome to Week 5 of the Heart of Christmas from the Art with Heart Team.

This week I'm sharing another festive project using my favourite pattern from the Boughs of Holly Designer Series Paper. I used this poinsettia design on last weeks Heart of Christmas creation and I just had to use it again this week.


An A5 notepad cover with pen holder makes such a lovely gift idea with lots of practical uses. And here are just a few...

  • Pop a hand written letter inside your hand made Christmas cards.
  • Write your list of card recipients.
  • Let the kids write their letter to Santa.
  • Shopping list of Christmas food and presents.

Have fun looking for matching pens to coordinate with whatever pattern you choose too!


I found the measurements for this cover in a YouTube video from Intatwyne Designs. The inside pocket could hold envelopes, stamps etc.



Simply replace the notepad when you've filled it with a new one.



I think these would make lovely customer thank you gifts or even a fun and practical Secret Santa gift.


You will find thumbnail images below for the products I used to create my project. These images are also linked to my online store.

That's it from me tonight everyone, thanks so much for stopping by on your way through our hop.

Heart of Christmas - Week 4



Hello everyone and welcome to Week 4 of the Heart of Christmas from the Art with Heart Team.

Giving a gift card as a present can often be a way of gifting to a family member or friend that is hard to buy for or that certain someone that has just about everything. And presenting said card doesn't have to be boring either, especially with this great idea!


This gorgeous gift card holder and box in one was altered to suit my requirements. The original design came from a YouTube video by former Stampin' Up! demonstrator Angelina Clarke of Intatwyne Designs.


I adore this beautiful poinsettia pattern with the white background. It is one of the designs from the Boughs of Holly Designer Series Paper which can be found in the July-December Mini Catalogue. I wrapped a length of the crinkled seam binding ribbon around the gift card and tied with a bow for an extra touch of prettiness.
 

The sentiment is from the coordinating Leaves of Holly stamp set.
I stamped in Real Red ink and layered each rectangle onto a Scalloped Contours die cut. I fussy cut the leaves from the DSP and embellished with Festive Pearls in Cherry Cobbler and Gold.



There is room on the back to add your personal message.
I added the largest die cut square in Real Red from the Stylish Shapes Dies and a piece of Basic White with detail from a Stitched with Whimsy die.


You will find thumbnail images below of the Stampin' Up! products I used to create my project. The images are linked to my online store.

Well that's it from me tonight everyone - thanks so much for stopping by on your way through our hop.

Heart of Christmas - Week 2


Welcome to Week 2 of the Heart of Christmas blog hop from the Art with Heart Team. Week 2 already - wow, just watch the weeks fly by now!


As soon as I saw the Whimsical Woodland 3D embossing folder in the July-December Mini Catalogue for 2022, I knew I had to get it. It took me right back to the July-December mini catalogue from last year and the Whimsy & Wonder Suite which was my absolute favourite from that catalogue.
The tree designs in this embossing folder echo those whimsical, fun elements and I just had to have it.


I used non-traditional Christmas colours of Polished Pink and Pool Party and lots of shimmer and sparkle that add to the fun, festive vibe. I have sparkly Wink of Stella snowdrops, a shimmery Pool Party and silver twine bow, and a twinkle of white glimmer paper. A Christmas tree isn't fully adorned without baubles, so the glossy dots in Melon Mambo and Pool Party plus festive pearls in silver, were a perfect inclusion on my card.


The white heat embossed greeting and sentiment are from the Leaves of Holly stamp set. 'Christmas Wishes' was fussy-cut and 'From our Home to Yours' was die-cut using a banner die from the Stylish Shapes dies in the Annual Catalogue.

A product list of thumbnail images that are linked to my online store can be found below.


 I used a sponge dauber and white pigment ink to highlight the embossed tree images. This also softens the look of the Polished Pink card stock and gives the whole card a white Christmas feel.

That's it from me tonight everyone - thanks so much for stopping by on your way through our hop.
