More New England treasures to inspire you today from Karen and Laura. Please do not worry if your goodies have not been shown yet, it was a very large Challenge and I only like to share a few masterpieces at a time. Everyone takes such time to create their wonders that I feel it is only correct for them to be shared in the same way.
Very striking Karen, I love the use of the background paper. I am rather a scaredy cat when using patterned paper, and normally play safe and use plain!! But the use of this wonderful holly and berry really gives your card that super Christmas feel.
WOW I would never have been brave enough to put PINK with this collection Karen, BUT it looks amazing. One wicked card Karen.
Laura has made a recipe book with her ribbons from the New England Collection. She wrote a note saying " A bit of card, lots of ribbon and some buttons". I think you forgot to mention a lot of inspiration and time Laura! This is some piece of art, I will take you through the pages. This is the front cover, very fresh looking.
We have Mulled wine, I like the little line of cheecky hearts.........we love mulled wine! We also have brandy butter, I had no idea you could freeze this for 3 months.
Then pastry and mincemeat (i think we are heading for Tonys all time best recipe). Fab idea with the little rocking horse charm Laura.
Thought so......Mince Pies. Laura this is wonderful, the little ribbon tabs on the sides of the pages are just perfect for turning.
Laura also includes a few mini cards, she said thay were cute but not very good if you had large handwriting or a long name!!! But they are CUTE.
I am glad you enjoyed the challenge Laura and many thanks for your comment about the ribbon designs. I had such fun creating them, although I will admit this range was the most stressfull of all our EXCLUSIVE Collection. The printers had trouble getting the line of tiny hearts that run along the edges - straight. Also the colour was a BIG issue. But we worked very closely with the factory and in the end tried a new form of printing and the results..............well...................in my opinion are perfect!!!
Thank you Karen and Laura for joining in with our Challenge, we have a very busy few weeks ahead of us, so maybe it is time to think of a NEW Challenge. (I have not mentioned this to Rachie, so mums the word shhhhhh!). I have had the idea forming while we were away on Sark, you get to do a lot of thinking there.
Have a great day.
