We are celebrating the birth of Jesus Christ, our one and only Saviour.
We want to wish each one of our loyal clients a very Blessed Christmas! May it be filled with thanksgiving, happiness and hopefully something really good to eat! We are thinking of those less fortunate at this time, and pray that God will comfort them as well.

Snail hunting – Two page layout
Today we have a stunning two-page layout by our November DT Member, Lynette Jacobs. We love the photos of the kids with the snails, and how she used the circles!
Step one: Cut two cardstock to 30cm x 30cm
Step two: Cut a 29cm diameter circle from Crate Paper: Portrait Collection Bouquet. Cut a 10 x 10 cm from Crate Paper: Portrait Collection Traditions for your journaling block.
Step three: Cut three strips by two. I cut along the pattern of the black lacy paper of the Crate paper: Portrait Collection: Tradition. I then split the lacy paper in two halves to go across the page. The other two strips I edged with a border punch.
Step four: Cut circles various sizes and lay out your basic layout to get the placement of the various circles.
Step five: Paste down the large circle with 7,5 cm on the left page. Paste down the strips, bottom strip is approximately 11 cm from the bottom. Then paste down the circles according to your placements.
Step six: I added some very old “raindrops” by Cloud 9 Design.
Step seven: I coloured the chipboard alphabet with a black marker.

Hello everyone! Better late than never! Here are the step by step instructions of the gorgeous “Born to Shop” layout our November Design Team Member, Lynette Jacobs, designed for us! Enjoy!!
Step one: I used the Crate Paper Emma’s Shoppe Collection (Books) for the background and cut it to 30X30 cm.
Step two: I cut a 9cm x 23cm strip of Crate Paper Paper Heart Collection (Define) and inked the edges black.
Step three: Using a 6x6 Crafters Workshop heart template, I traced 13 hearts on the Craft Paper: Emma’s Shoppe (Dolls), Portrait collection (Traditions) and Portrait collection (Bouquet).
Cut it out and inked it with black ink.
Step four: How do you make a shopping trolley look glamerousJ You add glitter! Ink the “Born to Shop” chipboard title, when dry cover it with Glossy Accents and Sprinkle it with black glitter.
Step five: Place and stick down the hearts along the edge so that you can get the correct stitching line.
Step six: Pierce holes and stitch.
Step seven: Place your photo and complete embellishing.
