Every year I like to buy some new Christmas crafting stash and NOT use it, so that I'll have something new to use before the next year's Christmas goodies appear on the shelves. And my December 2015 purchase was a pack of papers and die cuts from the Papermania "Folk Art Christmas" range.
The colours used in this range are pretty unconventional as Christmas colours go, and fit in really well with this week's colour inspiration at Christmas Card Challenges.
I've used a selection of the papers, simply matted and layered, and one of the die cut decoupage sheets. I seldom use die cut decoupage but I was very impressed with this - it is quite detailed and comes away cleanly from the retaining sheet without tearing or leaving white tags.
By the way, don't panic if you don't see any posts from me for a few days and I don't comment on your blogs - I have a lovely few days coming up with all sorts of exciting things planned, so I'll not be around Blogland much until early next week!
