Lights Aglow for Around the World on Wednesday

Thank you for joining in with the latest hop from the crew at Around the World on Wednesday. If you haven't hopped with us before, we're a group of Stampin' Up! Demonstrators from every time zone in the world where Stampin' Up! operates. You're here with me, in New Zealand.

Each month we present a different theme to inspire you to create.
This month, our theme is 'Festive Paperscapes'.

This time last year, I did some great things for a baby shower but when I moved house, I seem to have misplaced them all! So I started thinking about my Christmas table for this year instead!

This year, my go-to Christmas gear has been the Lights Aglow suite because the images in Christmas Lights and the sentiments from Brightest Glow are beautiful and so very compatible. Add in the gorgeous Lights Aglow DSP and you have all you could need for Christmas.

Well, when I say 'everything' the other great addition to the stash are the Cracker & Treat Box dies, but they are not just a Christmas thing. 

First up, I made these table decorations using the Brightest Glow and Labels Aglow bundles. They are really very easy, as the video below shows.

The table crackers, packed with some festive treats and a punny Christmas joke, look great in the Brightest Glow Specialty DSP. The Cracker & Treat Box dies make crackers a breeze and you can vary the size of them, depending on how you put them together. I've made these bigger than the standard size and if you're unsure of how to do that, it's on the video below as well. 

If you'd like to try out either of these projects, then here's a quick tutorial.

Next up on the hop is the inspirational Leonie Stuart from Australia.

If you live in New Zealand and don't have a Stampin' Up Demonstrator, I'd love to be yours. I can help you with ideas, get you catalogues and provide you with Stampin' Up products. You can leave a message in the comments or contact me using any of the methods listed in the Contact Me tab at the top of the page. You can shop with me from anywhere in New Zealand by clicking on the SHOP NOW button in the sidebar or on any of the products below.
