Yet more cards with my favourite paper pad

As I said in my previous post, I am really enjoying using the Christmas Cheer papers from Simply Creative.

Usually, I find something I love, then new toys arrive in the post – my good intentions of trying to use what I’ve got and not buy new failed spectacularly – and I put the current favourite away and often forget about it. 
In the case of my Christmas Cheer papers, though, I have somehow managed to put the new toys to the side (actually, I don’t know where my build a scene dies went… They got hidden from His Lordship. And apparently me) and keep using the same paper! I have got 6 full sheets of the original 30 left, and my scraps. I’m so proud of myself!

I have to admit that I’ve never yet used up a crafty kit, or a paper pad. If a mini Dawson does come along that’s going to have to change, we so desperately need the space, but this whole making a baby thing is a whole different story (I wish it was as easy and rewarding as making a card; unsuccessful fertility treatment is definitely lacking satisfaction of any kind).

Anyway, I thought I’d show you the cards I’ve made with my papers since my last post.

Simple, scrap busting, using an old free stamp. I really like this one

I was going to properly steampunk this up, but I think i like it simple. It might evolve

I do love a shaker card. I used my Trimcraft stag die and used the negative. Another scrap buster.

I love this season’s greetings paper, it looks like ribbon when used in a strip

Dreamees doily die, Kathryn Coyle Little Red Boots stamp and die, and several subtle layers

Does tartan holly work? I do love the tartan stags
