Joy of Noel for Freshly Made Sketches 599

 My preorder for the September - December Mini Catalogue arrived a couple of days ago. Today was play day! First equal out of the box was the Joy of Noel bundle. This is a lovely, traditional Christmas bundle that is part of a two-set mega suite. Today, I only used the bundle and used the sketch at Freshly Made Sketches for inspiration.

If I'm going for a traditional Christmas look, then for me it's most likely red, green, white and gold - just what happened today!

I used one of the new embossing folders, Distressed Tile, for the card front because I love it! I also embossed the gold foil with the same folder. 

Isn't that leafy background stamp gorgeous too? I stamped off Old Olive for that and used Stampin' Blends  to colour the Christmas spray.

I can feel a whole lot of projects coming with this one! You can view what else I got in my pre-order here.

These new mini catalogue products will be ready for you to purchase from 6 September.

If you live in New Zealand, you can shop with me from anywhere in the country. A little secret.... this bundle will featured in the next tutorial package from me and Joanne James, aka The Crafty Owl.  Buy it from either of us any time from catalogue and we'll send you the tutorials by email, and give you entry to our exclusive Facebook Group, as soon as they're available.
