Hey guys, good morning. This morning on The Scrappery Blog we are doing something a little different. Today we are fortunate enough to be involved with Papercut Labs and their 12 Days of Christmas Blog Hop! We love supporting Australian scrapbook businesses and Papercut is a wonderful resource that usually was only available from American companies. They are an online classroom, focusing on scrapbooking and other papercrafts. It is so great to see this resource highlighting the potential we have over here in Australia.

Now onto our contribution for the blog hop. Charm has created some amazing christmas cards using our old BPK Elsa - which is still available in store. I had a little fun with this months BPK Noelle and created a few cute little tags. Finally, Adele has created an adorable bunting for Christmas using last months TSK - Camille, this months BPK Noelle and a variety of other pieces from her own stash. So sit back and get ready to be INSPIRED.


Hello! Charmane here! Just for something different I'm going to show you some simple cards I have made using The Scrappery Elsa BPK {which is the *Bits & Pieces* Kit} I believe there is ONE in stock HERE!

I just fell in love with all of the Silver in this kit, and knew exactly what I wanted to do with those Silver Glitter Triangles - make Christmas Cards with TREES on them, of course!

But first I wanted to create a unique background using the Mister Huey's Silver Mist, I've done this by using the "Watercolour" Background technique that I've seen being used by others - this is where you use scrunched up plastic packaging, spraying a few squirts of mist and then scrunching it onto your Cardstock... simple!

Then I've added my stamps {you may recognise them from another Contributor?}

I've then added the CUTE Dear Lizzy Silver glitter triangles, and also the Studio Calico Mistable Stars from the ELSA BPK and my own handmade Chevron...I've then added a border by using a journalling pen, then stuck it to a pre-made blank white card! Done!

Here are a few more similar ones that I have made using the same background technique... I have also used the Studio Calico Silver rub-ons from the ELSA Kit on these cards too.

I'm planning on giving these {and more that I've made} to my relatives at my up and coming Family Get Together - I can't wait! Bring on Christmas!

I hope you all Have a Merry Christmas & a Happy New Year!

Wow Charm those cards were amazing!! After all that amazing eye candy, I think I am just going to give you one photo of my cute little tags and then the process video I created to show you all just how easy they are.

Merry Christmas fellow Scrappers!

This week I have been working on some homemade Christmas decorations for my new house, including this pretty no-so-traditional bunting for my fireplace. Here’s a little step by step process to make these beauties, and the great thing is, they are completely customizable! Include photos, text, even journaling!

1. Start with two packets of DIY Shop Large Chipboard Pennants and a collection of papers from the past couple of TSK kits from The Scrappery

2. Attach the papers to the pennants using a dry adhesive (wet may cause buckling of the paper). 

3. Order your pennants in a desired colour order. I decided on a random scattering of papers but you could consider a pattern, or an ombre effect of colours too!

4. Now it’s the fun part…EMBELLISHING! Add as many (or as little) embellishments as you like! I used a variety from the BPK Noelle and various thickers from past kits and my stash. I also added a few Christmassy photos too!

5. After you have finished embellishing your beautiful pennants, it’s time to string them together! I re-poked through the paper to make the holes visible, then grabbed some gold and white baker’s twine from my stash and threaded them together. I used 11 pennants in total, which is about 2 metres worth of bunting.

6. Now hang your beautiful creation!

Hope this can give you some ideas for some no-so-traditional decorations for your home!
