Tuesday part 3

Now you know when , you get something and you should be doing something else but you can't resist playing. Well the English Paper Company Blog Candy Pack is just like that.
So heres another example using some of the other papers

I inked the box blank with gold ink, although it dos nt show that well on this photo
other than the ribbon and a touch of sakura sparkle everything else you can see is made using The English Paper company papers, The tags come on a sheet all you have to do is cut them out The holly again cut from a tag adhered to chipboard and cut that out. Gingerbread men from another sheet. I really have to stop playing with this for now. Uhm

I was reading some of the English paper company information. All their papers are made using pulp from sustainable woods. So a great environmental choice as well.

Tuesday 2nd October

Hello all I have decided that I am going to try and giveaway a Blog candy every month. So each month I will put all the comments from my blog posts into a hat and draw a winner.
This month the Blog Candy has been donated by The very kind English Paper Company
With Christmas coming up they have very kindly donated a whole 12 by 12 stack of their Christmas collection (which can be seen by clicking on the above link) There you will see the six design ranges that the whole collection encompases. With something for everybody it is ideal for cardmaking and scraping.
I have made some examples using the Winter wonderland and festive frost selections.

On the angel card I have used one paper as a backgound , tore the angel from another paper and the word Angels sing and adhered with Silicon then I only added some gems. On the star boxes I have added peel off borders and gems. On the flower card I just added the flowers and leaves and on the frost I added sakura to the bow and peel off border and the sparkles either side of the frost. These papers are so versaile to many different uses, but importantly you can get very effective looks with very little work. Great if your mass producing your Christmas cards. Great for Chistmas giftboxes and bags.
Next week I will have examples from the other selections.
I am quite happy to post this to anywhere in the world so please feel free to take part no matter where you live. for every comment on my blog posts between 22nd Sept and 25th October you get one entry into the draw.

Next month I have another great giveaway as well which I will announce sometime next week

I also have two .Yes two free papers (my original designs not the English paper Companys designs (just to avoid confusion) for you today. I love the artworks of Klimt and these papers are inspired by his work.
