Tis the Season to be Jolly

 Hello again hope every one had a lovely Christmas
 and are ready to celebrate the New Year with style. 
So many exciting things to look forward too in the New Year.
 Today I am pleased to share, what I have created with my new collection
  Enchanted Tea Party, a layout and a card.
Again lots of fussy cutting with this layout and die cutting as well, my two favorite things, layered around a piece of Imaginarium Chipboard.

The dies I have used for the page are 
 Enchanted Tea Party Adventure time tag
 Enchanted Tea Party Doily set 
Ooh La La Ornate Entrance set

 I have used paper from  the 6x6 paper pad for this card layered with these dies
 Enchanted Tea Party Doily set
 Enchanted Tea Party Adventure time tag
 Enchanted Tea Party Invitation set
 Enchanted Tea Party bouquet

I have used Couture creations Delicate Medlar card stock for this card it is a versatile colour
 I have inked a little around the edge of the tea pot  and the tags 
placed a piece of foam tape in the center of the pot for dimension.
Cut two of the bouquet from delicate medlar and one in ivory.
A rather quick and simple card

Hope this has given you some more inspiration to use this cheerful collection

Would like to wish everyone a Safe, Healthy and Happy New Year.

Twas the day before Christmas

Twas the day before Christmas 
the table is set, ready for some sweet treats.
Ginger bread biscuits are iced, ready for eating
 The the tea is steeping,
whilst the cat lay sleeping.

Twas the night before Christmas, when all through the house
Not a creature was stirring, not even a mouse
the stockings were hung by the chimney with care,
In hopes that St Nicholas soon would be there.

The children were nestled all snug in their beds,
While visions of sugar-plums danced in their heads.
And mamma in her "kerchief, and I in my cap,
Had just settled our brains for a long winter's nap.

I am pleased to have the opportunity on Christmas Eve
 to share a couple of layouts I have created with my new collection  Enchanted tea party.
Lots of fussy cutting with these layouts if that your thing then this collection is for you, If not don't fear plenty of other designs which will suit your style, and not to mention the beautiful dies. that match the collection

Here I have layered three dies over the top of the chip board
using foam tape to give height placed underneath the petals of the flowers

With this layout I have cut the chipboard in half and the dies on top as well and placed on either side of the photo 
 I have used a Anna Griffin Stencil as well as Anna Griffin Texture Paste on a lightly misted background  placed over the top is a selection of strips of papers this is a great way to utilize scrap papers as they all match just layer them in an uneven manor

The dies I have used are 
 Enchanted Tea Party Adventure time tag
 Enchanted Tea Party Doily set 
Ooh La La Ornate Entrance set
and Dusty Attic chipboard

hope this gives you some inspiration on how to play with this fun new collection

So I would like to wish a Merry Christmas, be safe and enjoy the holidays
