November Festive Inspiration

Hi everyone!  It's crazy to think that Christmas Day is just 4 weeks away and the end of a decade following closely behind. As our American friends celebrate their thanksgiving festivities on the otherside of the world, we start to brace ourselves for one of the busiest times of year - the festivities of Christmas! It's exhilarating but are you ready for the whirlwind ride of chaoticness that we are about to embark on? 

The vibrant decorations are emerging.  Christmas shopping is on our radar with Click Frenzy, Black Friday and Cyber Monday sales all enticing us to spend up big.  The school year is starting to wrap up and our long awaited plans for that well deserved Summer vacation is now in sight.  The temperatures are warming up as we embrace for another long hot Australian Summer.  It's  the season for family & togetherness where we fire up the barbie, hang by the pool & just have fun!  With all the busyness that Christmas brings, it's the vibe and excitement in the air that makes it our most favourite time of year. 

With that said, November is always an exciting time of year for our design team because they get to inspire you with their festive projects that are just so much fun to create!  This year they showcased the latest Christmas collections from Crafters Choice - Nostalgic Treasuresand Festive Pop available from most Spotlight storesthroughout Australia and New Zealand.  


Now, let us revisit the brilliant projects our team created for you this month.

Just Bead It

African Turquoise Multi-strand Cuff Bracelet - Dominique Marando

I will be showing you how to make a multi-strand cuff bracelet, using the beautiful African Turquoise beads from Just Bead It, as well as showcasing some beading materials from Beadalon. The blue-green hues of the African turquoise beads give this bracelet a classy look that matches perfectly with the black accent beads, and the addition of silver spacers completes the design with just the right amount of sparkle to tie the whole bracelet together. I hope you enjoy!

Crafters Choice Festive Pop

Festive Rose Gold Christmas Cards - Christine Santos

Crafters Choice have a couple of exciting new Christmas ranges and today I get to share with you a set of fun rose gold Christmas cards. These are not hard to make and below I'll show you an easy trick for adding texture on the glittered rose gold card.

Festive Pop DIY Cardframes - Trudi Harrison

Trudi with you today sharing some Festive Pop Fun!!
I LOVE the recently released Crafters Choice DIY Photo Frame Card Set - so much fun and a quick and easy way of personalising a festive message to friends and loved ones.

December Daily Christmas Journal - Raelene Coussens

I selected the Festive Pop 6x6 paper pad, Sticker Bookletand Die Cuts for setting up my December Daily Journal.  They coordinate so well with the gold striped notebook I am going to use for my journal.

Crafters Choice Nostalgic Treasures

Nostalgic Treasures Christmas Card - Beckie Dreyer

Oh my goodness … I am so in love with the new Christmas collections from Crafters Choice and I have to say the Nostalgic Treasure is my favourite.

Nostalgic Treasures Floral Decoration - Beckie Dreyer

Today I am here to share with you a little Christmas Decoration that I made using the Nostalgic Treasures papers.

Childhood Christmas Memories Mini Album - Raelene Coussens

Those of you who were following me in 2017 may remember my Childhood Christmas Memories Altered Album and that I couldn't find the only photo of me taken with Santa so I had saved the front page for when I did find it.  When I finally found my Santa photo I felt Crafter's Choice Nostalgic Treasures was the perfect choice for scrapping it into my altered book.

Bella! Free Spirit

Do you walk to the beat of your own drum?  Are you independent, fearless, passionate, creative, imaginative, spontaneous or a non-conformist?  Be free to see life through the eyes of a child - open up and try new things without fear of failing or of what others will think.  Be a Free Spirit!

Free Spirit Goodie Bags - Christine Santos

One of my daughters just celebrated her birthday not long ago and today I get to share with you her goodie bags featuring the new Free Spirit paper collection. I really like how they turned out!  So much that I wanted to keep one for myself.

Floral and Free Inspiration - Trudi Harrison

Happy first day on the month!!  It's Trudi back with you today sharing some more pretty floral inspiration from the new Bella Mini Theme releases - Fancy Floral and Free Spirit.  I have used the Bella! Free Spirit Bohemian paper for the background base and added lots of pretty fussy cut floral embellishing from Bella! Fancy Floral Blossom paper.
