Monica said “What a pleasure to cook sweets and biscuits during Christmas holidays! Even better with a proper recipe book, with a colored Christmas scene on the front cover.”

You could add all your traditional family recipes and then hand it down from generation to generation!

We asked Ilina to explain how she chose her color scheme, she said “I LOVE Christmas and all the Christmas crafting. As well I love non-traditional Christmas cards, so I decided to go with non-traditional design and colors. I personally love how this card turned out. ”

Christmas Shaker Card

What could be more fun to receive than a Christmas Shaker card?  We know, we know ….a Christmas shaker card with money in!!!!

By Leah Cornelius

Leah said “with gift giving at Christmas sometimes giving a simple but fun gift is just the thing. Creating a clear shaker card with a gift card or some money tucked in is a card and gift all in one. To make it festive I choose some festive images and brought them to life using Chameleon colors in Crimson Red (RD4) and Grass Green (GR3)”

The office team are all hoping that we are on Leah’s Christmas card list this year 😉
