Guest Designer for The Crafty Pad and a few challenges

Good afternoon peeps, hope you are all well and enjoying the aroma´s coming out of the kitchen from your Sunday roast. I am honoured to be GD with The Crafty Pad and this week´s theme is

Red & Green.

I really enjoyed using the "Christmas Personalised Mini Story Book" which can be found HERE and I hope our adorable grandsons will enjoy reading it as they love nothing better than a good story book and I sit for hours reading with them when I am over.

All papers are from the Joyeux Noel pad by Papermania, poinsettias from Wild Orchid Crafts

I have glittered all the edges and am afraid to say the wording has been blurred out for obvious reasons, sorry.

Sissix die cuts and sizzlets words.

All images coloured with copics and prismas.

Embossed die cuts which I have had forever.
Spellbinders snowflakes and gems from stash.

The images and verses have been cut out with nesties.

I adhered two square cards together to make this wee book which consists of 6 pages.

and you still have plenty of time to make one of these books for those special wee folks in your life. The direct link to the product is HERE

Hi Nicola - great to have your create for us at The Crafty Pad. :) :)
I just adore this mini personalised christmas book you have made and I am sure your grandsons will love it - especially with their names in the story. :)
I love all the detail on every page - plenty to look at. :) Also the way you have adapted it to suit your needs. Just brilliant. :)
