The Beary Christmas collection is available until the end of December 2017.  Buy it as a  full kit or purchase individual items.  The scrapbooking stamp and thin cuts are too cute for words.

Today I am sharing a layout featuring some of my favourite Elf on the Shelf snaps.  I can’t wait until Razzle makes an appearance again this year.

The ‘Oh What Fun’ title was too long for my available space so I cut the stamp to break it into 2 parts.  This doesn’t affect the quality of your stamping and if you want a long title next time you can position the 2 pieces together on a block and no-one will know!

Having some Beary Christmas fun with Close To My Heart papers, stamps and dies. Order yours at before Dec 31, 2017

I do love using stamps with coordinating dies to create embellishments on my pages.  You can cut through 2 layers of cardstock at a time so it didn’t take long to cut enough presents for the layout.  This also used up some of those pesky small scraps that clutter my paper organisers.

The Beary Christmas stamps and co-ordinating dies from Close To My Heart are just delightful. Order yours at by Dec 31, 2017

Close To My Heart’s, clear and gold shimmer brushes were made for Christmas.  Add them to the lights and gifts for some extra sparkle.  It is so hard to photograph sparkle!  You can see it on the Christmas tree star.

  1. A duh! Head slap moment. How easy is it to stamp those stamps on coloured cardstock?!?! The tree and the reindeer look fantastic and minimal colouring needed. You ALWAYS teach me something!

    Love how you cut your stamp for the title, Shaunna! And I can’t wait to see what your little Duchess gets up to this year!
