Sue Wilson's Poinsettia

Hi again, it's Jenny back with you.  And I am utterly loving this set of dies from Sue Wilson.  It's one of  those sets that goes with so many other die collections, stamps and papers.  It's a must have.

Now, if you would like to add the dies from Sue to your collection, you can find them here:

Sue Wilson Die Collections

I have teamed it with quite a few products, I'll do a shopping list for you:

Couture Creations die:           Merry Christmas Die
Cosmic Shimmer Snow set:   Glitter Shimmer Set
Double sided adhesive sheet: Double sided adhesive sheet
Sue Wilson Embossing Folder: Poinsettia embossing folder

This is the card I have made for you today:


Really happy with this card, and it's nice and easy.  First take a sheet of double sided adhesive, and peel one protective layer off and stick it to a piece of paper.  Take the second protective sheet off, and cover it with some of the sprinkles from the Cosmic Shimmer set.  These are all slightly different.  Don't completely cover your adhesive with one pot, instead sprinkle a pinch of each one until you are happy, then cover with the finer glitter.  This will give you a nice varied finish.  

Repeat this, but this time stick your sheet onto a piece of green paper.  When you apply your glitters you will still be able to see the green underneath.

Die cut your poinsettias from your hand made glitter sheet, and the leaves from the green sheet, then cut the outside poinsettias from plain white card and glue together: 




Arn't they pretty.  I love the way they shine.

Now cut the Merry Christmas from white and then green card, and stick together: 


Finally emboss a piece of white card with the lovely poinsettia embossing folder:


To finish the card I simply mat and layered using green and gold card, and added a touch of glitter on my embossed card.

Debbie Shore's Threaders Project 4: Japanese Knot Bag

This stunning bag is actually very simple to make, and can be made as large or as small as you like! Try making it up in different fabrics, denim, faux leather or even silk, which would look lovely when embroidered as an evening bag! Use a 1.4” seam allowance.



Materials needed: 
• 2 pieces of patterned fabric measuring 19” x 25” 
• 2 pieces of lining fabric measuring 19” x 25” 
• 2 pieces of fusible fleece measuring the same

1: Cut a curve around the bottom edge of each piece of fabric and fleece.



2. Turn one of the patterned pieces to the wrong side and draw a line each side, from the top, 4” from the side and 12” from the top. Using a 12” circle template, join the lines to make a curve.



3. With the patterned fabrics right sides together, cut around the curved line. You’ll see two handles forming. Measure 8” from the top of one of the handles and cut across.



4. Measure 10” from the bottom of each section on the bag and make a mark on either side.



5. Sew the two outer and two lining section…

How to Make a Glittery Star Using the Vivi Gade Paper Star Strips

We're thrilled to welcome Lotte Littau, the co-founder and co-owner of Creativ Company to Hochanda this week. She's travelled all the way from Denmark to bring you incredible shows across three days, showcasing the Christmas paper range from Creativ Company. Lotte will be bringing you lots of demonstrations throughout her shows on how you can use all of these beautiful papers to create a Scandi Christmas this year. Here's just one of the projects Lotte will be showing this week... 






Step 1.
Half two 2.5cm wide paper star strips. Now only use three of the four paper star strips.


Step 2.
Double over each of the three paper star strips and cut all the ends at an angle. Put a star strip around another star strip and fold it tightly three times around this star strip. This is illustrated in the picture. Repeat this process with the other two star strips.





Step 3.
Assemble the three paper star strips over and under each other, forming three double legs with a triangle in the middle.
