Frosted designs: non traditional holiday layout.

Good morning all, 

It's Channa here to host the Friday challenge this week. 
It's the happy holidays month and it's the month full of happiness. 

The challenge is : Make a holiday layout, that can be a Christmas layout, Hannukah or what you may celebrate this month without using the colors Red or Green. So you are not allowed to use these colors. 

I made a layout using blue and white:


I created this layout using paper from the 7 dots, cold country collection. I used a picture of our christmas tree. I love this time of the year!! All the lovely decorations that make our homes so cosy and warm. 


On the close up pictures you can see all the little details on my layout and the embellishments that i used. 



thank you all for stopping by and enjoy your weekend, 
Channa

Good morning all, 

As you all might have noticed i am really MIA for the next couple of weeks. 
I am getting used to my new job called motherhood. 
He is my little bundle of joy, keeping us awake at night but it's all worth it when you look at his little face.

Our little boy arrived on the 8th of November, he was born at 15:20, 3950 grams and 52 cm. 


as for Scrap africa, we are having a sketch challenge this week and i made a card.

Lots of fun creating this card. 

Have a look for some inspiration at Scrap africa blog en join our challenge.

Frosted Designs Gift of Giving Blog Hop!!!!

Hello there fellow crafters!!!  

Welcome to our "Gift of Giving" Blog Hop!



With the holiday season lurking just around the corner, we decided to give our members some ideas for fabulous handmade items that can be gifted this year!  Our Design Team has been working really hard so sit back and enjoy the show as you "hop" along with us!

For this blog hop i used modeling paste as my product from the store. I love using it and you can use it in many ways. I made a nice jewellry box for my friend as she gave me a wonderful baby shower. The only problem is ....that i did not make a picture of the ending result.........sorry it must have been my pregnancy brain. 

But i will show you a few pics of how i used the modeling past:


I used a heart shaped box, which i decorated with paper from 7 dots, 
cold country collection. 
I added a stencil on top of the box and used the modeling paste. 
Let it dry overnight. 


After i let it dry i added some dylusion ink in order to give it some 
dimension and color.
