I am delighted to be here today as a new member of the Design Team at http://noordesign-uk.blogspot.co.uk/ and am sharing some inspiration from the fabulous Crafteeze monthly Collection which Tracy has put together at http://noordesign-shop.co.uk/ focusing on her favourite things.
So, first of all, a little bit about the Crafteeze monthly Collections which are Limited Edition. Each month is to a different theme. This month is YULETIDE. Tracy tries to source ALL NEW items each month for the collections and if there are any left over they will go into the store and if not, just those that purchased the kit will receive.
Well, when I received my Yuletide Collection I can tell you without a shadow of a doubt I was absolutely in awe. In fact I really need two! One to use and one to look at! lol Receiving this Collection, which is to a different theme each month, means it is going to be the highlight of the month for me, and better still I have no idea what will be included in it. I notice that the next Collection for October is entitled 'Art Deco' WOW! I cannot wait!
So onto what I made. Now I was short of time when I was making this, so I just had to go with my instinct. When I saw the lovely plain gift bag there in the kit waiting to be prettied up that was my starting point. And then I went from there.
The 6 inch papers from the Crafteeze Collection are Pion North Pole, a lovely selection and the image is from the same brand which fortunately I had already purchased along with the pregathered lace from http://noordesign-shop.co.uk/
Virtually all the embellishments are from the Crafteeze Collection and I have added Dutch Doobadoo Structure Paste to the stars. I just love the lace featured at the top. There are so many possibilities for using this, I just did not want to cut into it!
I finished it off with the fabulous Vintage Seam Binding which I am absolutely in love with. This is available in the shop in different colours. I chose white and Ivory. When it arrived I just could not believe my eyes. I had ordered several colours and placed together they looked so yummy. Sat there together they just reminded me of Mr Whippy ice cream!
I will list below the items I have used, apart from items from my own stash. Full details can be seen on the Blog at http://noordesign-uk.blogspot.co.uk/ also.
