Christmas with Pizazz!

It’s ANYTHING GOES at Craft Your Passion this week!!So you’re free to make whatever you choose!!

We also have some fabulous news.We are being sponsored this week by Pizzazz Aplenty.The owner Judy is very generously giving away a $15 Goodie Pack to one lucky winner!But that’s not all – for every 50 entries one person will win digital stamps from either Lauretta’s Digital Stamps  or CoCoDingo Digital Stamps!!

With all that going on you’d be mad to miss it!So what are you waiting for ?Head on over to check out full details on how to play and take a look at the DT and GDT’s beautiful work.

I’ve used French Cutie from Lauretta’s Digital Stamps.She’s not really a Christmas stamp you could use her anytime.She just reminded me of the type of image you seeon Victorian style Christmas card with all her lacy petticoats on show.She does look wintry too,keeping her hands warm in that muff.She’s been coloured with Promarkers and her tiny buttons have been given dimension with Ruby Red Liquid Pearls.

I decided to make a rossette using some beautiful Jezebel lace from Pizzazz Aplenty.Us DT were so lucky to recieve some gorgeous goodies from the store.I can tell you first hand I was so impressed with the quality of these products.The lace cut so perfectly I didn’t feel the need to sew the edges of the rossette together once I’d pulled it into shape.I’ve also used some fabulous  red Rhinestones to adorn the die cut corner pieces.I’ve also discovered a fantastic new tool!It’s called a Gel Picker and can be found on the same page as the Rhinestones.There is also an informative guide on how to use it.I had so much fun using it and boy did it make life a LOT easier.It’s a real ‘must have’.No more trying to pick them up with with tweezers only for them to ping across the  room or trying to position them with fumbling fingers.And most important of all  – no cursing when one of the little blighters escapes just as your youngest enters the room!
