Autumn ….. I thought it would ..

…… be a break from Christmas !!!!!!!

But its NOT !!!!!!!!!!!! ha ha ha ha ha …. just want to try and fool some of my anti-Christmas-at-the-moment friends – you know who you are girls ahem Denize, Jackie G & Co !!!

acetate layout 1

This layout was made using the flocked acetate sheet from the beautiful Candlelight Christmas designer series paper.  The paper is available in the new Autumn/Winter Catalogue from Stampin Up! which is launching this weekend ! In this set you will receive a set of 12 double sided papers, 2 of which are flocked acetate – the quality is undeniable, believe me !


1.  Stamp and die-cut three ornaments from the Ornament Keepsake bundle using real red and gumball green inkpads.

2. Stamp and cut out the large label from the Everything Eleanor stamp set using real red.

3. Cut three strips of paper from the Candlelight Christmas designer papers. Make the varying lengths and widths.

4. Punch out a gumball green label with the designer label punch.  Also cut out another label, but push the short end  back into the punch, and punch a { sign.

5. Adhere your layers as shown in my layout.  I added some real red grosgrain ribbon.  To do this, I put on some red sticky strip, and pleated the ribbon in the ‘normal’ way, and then crossing and twisting it over.  To ensure the ribbon laid flat, I put glue dots under the folds.

6. Cut some thin strips of very vanilla cardstock, and add your journalling.

7. To adhere the stamped and cut out baubles, I threaded a darning needle with bakers twine.  I wrapped the twine around the top of the bauble, and then poked the needle through the acetate.  I brought the twin down the back of the page following the same line of twine at the front, and then taped down the end at the back of the bauble so that the twine on the back didn’t show.

8.  Adhere the { sign and the green decorate label as shown. 

9. Add a real red grosgrain bow, your title using whatever medium you prefer -  and voila !
