It was hard, as usual, to choose which one to begin with but I eventually chose to start with the Chalkboard Christmas set.
Now, I would not normally use black at Christmas, when it comes to the festive season I am defiantly a vintage traditionalist, red, gold and green is our chosen colours at home and we bring out the same decorations year after year, which I love. So I thought I would give this set a go and I have to say I loved using it, as you will see I hope.
To begin with what do you get in the set?
Well you get the pad of 8x8 papers which are all lovely and you get 6 of each design so you have plenty to do lots of things with. Also some beautiful toppers with frames you can take out and some die cuts too. Not to forget their Candi, which if you have never come across it they describe them as brads without the fuss as they are made of paper and have no little legs, so you just stick them onto your project. All coordinate beautifully and the whole set is beautiful quality, as you expect from Craftwork cards.
Here is my first card, nice and simple using part of one of the papers in the pad along with a sentiment and 2 die cuts. I just love that little bird!!
The second one is using another paper but this time I have cut out the image and used 3d foam to give it some hight. I then used the other half of the same paper as a backing paper and just added a sentiment to finish it off.
As you can see by these couple of cards you can make quick and easy cards with the set that look striking. You can also spend more time and create bigger and more involved projects with it too, as I will show you in the coming weeks.
