Heidi Swapp - Vintage Chic

Can you believe that  it is November and that we are in the middle of our last challenge for 2012? I can't! It has been a huge year but a very successful one!

The final challenge for 2012 was set by me! I have gone with something different. All you need to do is scrap lift my layout (below). Easy!

With my layout I decided that I wouldn't change too much. I loved this layout and often when you find something that works well it is fun to recreate it in another paper collection. 
So here is what I have come up with using the gorgeous 'Heidi Swapp - Vintage Chic' collection.....

This paper collection and other bits and pieces (Buzz Words and the Colour Shine) are just gorgeous and very easy to work with. Just perfect I thought for a layout involving scenery. They add to the tranquility and beauty of the scene - I think!

Patterned Paper - Vintage Chic - Heidi Swapp; Cardstock - Kaisercard; twine; lace; ribbon; iTop - brad; regular envelope; Dear lizzy + Amercian Crafts Thickers - Merry; Heidi Swapp - Colour Shine - Mint Green; Heidi Swapp - Vintage Chic - Buzz Words; Kaisercraft - Paper Blooms - Sage; Kaisercraft Clear Stamps. 

Janene has set a great card challenge this month. The challenge is to create a Christmas card using lace as an embellishment.
This month I decided to showcase three really simple cards. When making a lot of Christmas cards it is nice to have the same simple features and just swap them around a little (or make them exactly the same!).
All of these cards use the same size cardstock (A5 - 21cm x 14.8cm) which fits nicely into a regular size envelope, the same simple tree shape (a triangle), lace and of course the words 'Merry Christmas.'
These literally took me less then an hour to create!

Here they are.......

Patterned Paper - Vintage Chic - Heidi Swapp; Cardstock - Kraft and Kaisercard; Merry Christmas - clear stamp (Kaisercraft) and Merry Christmas (Silhouette Cameo); lace; ribbon; Heidi Swapp - Colour Shine - Mint Green

Well, if you haven't started making Christmas Cards there is a quick and simple idea for you!

Remember this is the last challenge for the year....what a great gift for Christmas to win a prize pack from Scrapbookit just for entering the challenges!!
