Feeling Festive?

Ok so it might be well over 10 months til Christmas (thank goodness says my poor credit card!) but after having recently snagged a deal on some of The Girl's Paperie Tinsel and Twig collecion I'd been hanging out to use it so I created these cards;

Merry Christmas cards
Cardstock - Bazzill, Patterned paper - The Girl's Paperie, Flower embellishments - The Girl's Paperie, Rub-ons - Kaiser, Embroidery thread - DMC, Black machine thread - craft supply.

Over the weekend I also managed to complete another layout for week 2 of the Scrapz.University comp. The Horticulture challenge was as follows;

Course Convenor:
Prof. Sheree Forcier

Course Outline:
It's time to venture outdoors into the sunshine and soak in the beauty of nature that surrounds us. We all love to spend time out in the garden whether its to play with the kids, tend to the roses or to just enjoy some peaceful moments on our own under our favourite tree.

For this elective you need to scrap your favourite garden photos. You could choose to feature your favourite plants or flowers, the kids watering the vegie patch, or your favourite spot in the garden to just sit and read a book. The choice is yours!

Credit Points:
10 Points

Bonus Points:
Add at least 6 flowers and a frame to your page. (You will earn 5 points for the flowers, and 5 points for the frame.)

Digging for Spuds layout
Cardstock - Jenni Bowlin/Coordinations, Bazzill, Patterned paper - October Afternoon, Alphas - Pink Paislee, American Crafts, Rub-on - American Crafts, Label stickers - October Afternoon, Bling - Kaiser, Ricrac - Prima, Tin pin - October Afternoon, Cream machine thread - craft supply, Pen - American Crafts.

I scrapped a photo of one harvest from our potato patch when we had it growing late last year. I incorporated a kraft border and a row of tiny green flowers (rub-on beneath the title) for extra credit points.

It's a simple page but I like it. I hope you do too!

Best wishes for a wonderful week ahead!
