Silver stick tree

Hi everyone,

Well it is the 5th December already and the last day of our 5 Days in December series.  For today I am sharing a silver spray painted stick tree with handmade decorations.  My son likes to collect sticks so that was the inspiration for the tree.  The decorations are a mix of collectables from the Silver bells collection, some patterned paper that has been die cut with a couple of different star dies, silver board cut with snowflakes dies and some real silver bells.

Hi everyone,

One of my favourite gifts to give to people who like papercraft is a collection of papers, ribbons, embellishments and anything else I think they would like.  I put it all together into pizza boxes which is the main way I keep all my paper collections together.

White embossed cards and gift box

Hi Everyone,

Yesterday's post talked about how it is easy to create striking projects using the contrast and interest that the colour black adds.  Today we are showing some cards that have simple elegance by using texture and lots of white.

Using gold paint pens on wooden shapes

Hi Everyone,

One of the quickest ways to add gold to your projects is with a simple gold paint pen or metallic marker.  I am sharing a photograph of some of the new Kaisercraft Wooden shapes coloured with metallic markers.  They dry really fast and give great coverage.  You can get a range of colours too.
