Christmas In July...

Saturday, July 17, 2010

Such a nice change to work with a Christmas collection when the weather is cold and there is snow on the mountains... something we never get to do here at Christmas time. We're usually in the swimming pool, wearing shorts and thongs and cooling down with ice-cold drinks.
Imaginisce are about to release their third new collection... Cottage Christmas and just wait until you see all the gorgeous papers, snow flakes and crystals, not to mention little gnomes and reindeer awwww!
I cracked open my pack last night and set to task creating a snow-globe for my daughter to add to her ever increasing collection.
Lots of time-consuming fussy cutting with the smallest scissors I could find, but my daughter loves her new snowg-globe so the sore fingers and midnight blindness were worth it!
Make sure you keep an eye out on the Imaginisce blog this coming week as they are having yet another release party to celebrate this gorgeous Christmas line and their will be heaps of give-aways and lots of inspirational projects from the Imaginisce DT team!
From farm to you...
