Close To My Heart Beary Christmas Paper Suite: Australasian Blog Hop

Australasian Blog HopA Happy Hello and welcome aboard our Beary Christmas Paper Suite Australasian, Close to My Heart Blog Hop.

If you have arrived here from the amazingly creative Creating with Kara Davies then you are in the right place.

If you landed here by accident, no problem, please join in by following the link at the end of this blog post – where you will discover lots of ideas using the Beary Christmas Paper Suite

 

Beary Christmas Paper Suite The Beary Christmas Paper Suite is traditional Christmas colours with cute Bears & other animals sprinkled through that add a lot of charm to the paper suite.

For this blog hop I made a Double Front Fold card using the Beary Christmas Paper Suite to really show it off & to make a special Christmas Card.

Basically there is another card front behind when you open the card – allowing more areas to decorate or even hide messages. And I thought it would work well with this paper paper pack.

I used the tree and presents from the Beary Christmas Scrapbooking Stamp + Thin Cuts bundle to decorate the card & coloured the images in with ShinHan™ Touch Twin™ Markers.

I hope you enjoyed what I created today & if you did so, please leave a comment before you head over to the very talented: Doreen Watkins who I am sure will showcase something absolutely wonderful.

Enjoy the hop & thanks so much for taking the time to check out these ideas with this month’s feature on the Close To My Heart Beary Christmas Paper Suite.…Til next time, see you soon & keep creating!

Close To My Heart Jack Paper Suite: Australasian Blog Hop

Australasian Blog HopA Happy Hello and welcome aboard our Jack Paper Suite Australasian, Close to My Heart Blog Hop.

Jack Paper Packet

I decided to create a slider card using the featured Jack Paper.

This allowed me to use a variety of papers patterns & add a little surprise element to the card. If you look closely you will see that I used some of the patterned paper to create the bow instead of plain cardstock.

I even pulled out the new Scallop Border Thin Cut & tried cutting it into some Gold Shimmer Trim – which I just had to use to decorate the present.

Slider Card: Closed created with Close To My Heart Jack Papers. www.maz.closetomyheart.com.au

With the slider closed it looks like a little present & once you pull the tab it revels a little bear that hides behind (or in) the present. What is great about this idea is that you can use any pattern paper to create your present – you just need to decide what will be revealed once the slider tab has been pulled open!
