Christmas Booklet

This week on Free Craft Downloads we had something a little different - Bob produced a "Booklet" with free downloads in which is available HERE The booklet contains some Christmas designs - You can use them yourself, or pass the link on to friends to use, you could print out the sheets and pass them on to friends, maybe someone who would like to get started in crafting etc
Whatever you decide to do with it - they are lovely images to use.

For my first sample I used the design on page 14

I printed it on photo paper then cut it out and layered it, I then stuck it on to a pale green background then a slightly darker green layer to this I added a fine line gold border peel off
I used the flakes 3 design for the backing paper and stuck to an A5 size card in the centre of each of the snowflakes I added a tiny blob of "icicles - stickles" it gave a nice effect and catches the light lovely Across the top I used a holly stencil and green/red glitter pens to colour in the holly design.
I also used the bells corners decoupage design from page 6 (just used 1 so the other can be made up and used on another card)

For my second sample I used the design from page 13

Again this was printed on photo paper, cut out and made up, I used flakes 22 design for the backing on this card
I added some silver mirri card to the back of the design then added a blue fine line border peel off.
To the snowflakes paper I added some of the "waste" dots (from peel off sheets ) randomly inbetween the snowflakes,
I added silver corners and silver fine line borders
Then stuck the design to the left hand side of the card and added a silver frame to the right side with "Seasons Greetings" inside.

A couple more samples will follow over the next few days
