Freshly Made

So my crafting hat is a bit lopsided at the moment so I decided to give this weeks Freshly Made Sketches a go.
First I used the Simon Say Stamp Tri Circle die, now I used to do this with a circle punch but gosh this takes the headache away from lining them up.
Since I'm on the Christmas card bug I decided to use Happy Holidays die and stamp again from Simon Says Stamp a bit more tricky lining up. But I stamp them separately and then cut out roughly also used repositionable tape so I could alter the placement.
The papers are Doodlebug and the Holly is a Martha Stewart Punch.

Now we Crafters are a canny lot and you can't waste the wastage so I used it on another card this time I added some snowflakes but embossed the layers. The folders are Sizzix Snow Falling and a Darice one.
I had a brilliant day yesterday although cutting tools like the Cricut and the Big Shot were ganging up against me so I still need to put titles on my layouts.


  1. Debby, love both of these cards, good use of all the bits of waste too.
