Nineth Day of Christmas

Day Nine

Today I have a layout to share with you all "Let it SNOW". Once again I have used Snow Swirled stamp set (115868 $45.95) I wasn't lying when I said it was a favourite of mine. I stamped the snow flake background with white ink. This is a different ink pad to our normal classic inks pads. It is called craft ink, it thicker and needs to be left overnight to dry. The snowy trees are made using the heat and stick powder technique found here. You don't need to use Versamark with this craft ink pad, as it is moist and sticky.

The wreath is made from one of our Sale-a-Bration stamp sets called Vintage Labels. For those of you who don't know what sale-a-brations is, it is our biggest sale of the year. Runs over Jan & Feb and every $100 you spend, you choose a free stamp set from the sale-a-bration catalogue. It's a great time to host a workshop as your guest always love getting things for free!!! If you would like to book a date with me please contact soon, as spots are filling fast. You girls know a bargin when you see it!!!!
You may have noticed I am using the same stamp set in a lot of different ways. In fact I only own three Christmas sets. I wanted to show you how to use you non-Christmas products in a festive way. Like your Bigshot dies, punches & non-Christmas sets. Get creative and see what you can come up with. I recently saw someone used the deer from Forest friends (116881 $24.95) and turn him into a reindeer. Put a Santa hat on anything (like my owl in day eight) and it become Christmas.

My journaling reads:-

"Well it's no surprise there is no snow at Christmas here in Australia,
but every year at the most amazing house in Thornton they have the best faux snow.
There are children everywhere squealing with excitement
as they get covered with snow.
Connor is standing in the middle"
