Friday Die Day

Hello friends

This is a first - a FDD completely prepared in a hotel room!
Apologies if the photos are not up to scratch, it was foggy
the whole time I was in Peterborough and daylight was sparse,
relied on little lamps in the room.

I'm featuring Tammy Tutterow's Shortie Tabs this week and
incorporated them into a Christmas card.

Each tab measures approximately 3 inches x 0.75 inches,
ideal for lots of projects.
This is how they look cut/embossed - 8 dies in total.

I selected four of the designs and cut them in half.

Prepared an ivory card base with some patterned festive paper.

Positioned the four tabs at the corner to create bunting.

Added a wooden snowflake (available from Sainsburys - parcel toppers)
and mini poinsettias.

Sentiment is typed and die cut.  Close up of the bunting.

Shortie Tabs is available from your Spellbinders retailer along
with lots of gorgeous Tammy Tutterow dies - check out the envelopes,
they are very cute.

I'm back home after the Create and Craft 4 day Sapphire deal,
lots of shows and lots of fun.
Yesterday was publication day for Paperhearts and Summer Kisses
and I shared the news with Andy Love and he kindly mentioned it on the show! 

I have a weekend to really get cracking on Christmas,
quite a few gifts have arrived - thank you Amazon and I'm now delving into the
wrapping...wish me luck everyone!

Take care friends.

  7. Love this ! So pretty. Congrats on the book release , I'm so glad hubby got me it for Xmas xx

  8. The creativity is other way to take advantange for the adversity. We can see this cuality in all spheres of society... In the corporative scene, design stands mwc Barcelona
    are the royal example of identity creativity working.
