I hope you are all enjoying the festivities of the season and the final countdown to Christmas – can you believe it is just 1 week away??! I feel totally unprepared but somehow the tree is up, the presents are wrapped and the cards have all been sent! I’ve no idea how it all got done but I’m so glad everything appears to be on schedule for now.
Today is a very special day for my husband Ben and I as we are celebrating our 10 year wedding anniversary. Christmas has always been my favourite time of year so it seemed fitting to have a wedding to match. Some people say their wedding day is a bit of a blur, but I remember every detail of my wedding as though it happened yesterday. In fact, I can’t understand where the last 10 years have gone!
I wanted to make a 10 year anniversary scrapbook page to mark this milestone in our lives – the photos are of us then and now. And the Frosted Floral suite was the perfect way to adorn the page. I have loved using every part of this gorgeous suite.
The great news is the First Frost stamp and die set will carry over to the next catalogue, but I will miss this beautiful Frosted Floral DSP so much. The colours of our wedding were red and gold for Christmas, so I used merry merlot for the mat layers and champagne foil as my chosen metallic foil paper. Gray Granite is prominent in the DSP and with the black and white photos, I thought champagne would be perfect with its warmer grey tones.
Of course, no scrapbook page (or any page for that matter) would be complete without a little Joyous Noel tranquil tide glimmer paper. I rarely buy products when they are retiring. but I must admit to stocking up on another pack of this stunning paper!
A lot has changed for us over the past 10 years – people have come into and gone out of our lives. The most important newcomer has been our gorgeous little boy Grayson who is now 20 months old. We feel so blessed to have him. Times have been testing, but our love for one another remains just the same.
Although I’m not a 3D crafter by nature, I absolutely love making my own gift packaging whenever I can.
I wanted to create a lidded box to hold a gorgeous tube of Neals Yard hand cream. The perfect Christmas gift! The Frosted Floral Speciality DSP is just beautiful and the shimmery effect of this wintery floral paper makes it very special to work with.
I also created an insert for the box to hold the tube in place.
I decorated my box using the gorgeous label Dies from the Frosted Bouquet framelits Dies along with some silver metallic edged ribbon.
Finally I added a few frosted and clear epoxy droplets. Oh how pretty!
So in love with this paper and I can’t stop using it!

*TIP – remove 1/16th” (or a sliver) of card from two adjacent sides of cardstock for the base and insert (this will ensure your lid fits perfectly onto your box base)
So it’s here and it’s live!!!! The stunning new Autumn/Winter catalogue has finally arrived and you won’t be disappointed. There’s just about something for everyone in this catalogue, and today I am combining two of my favourite things – the Frosted Floral speciality DSP and the Detailed Deer thinlits dies.
I kept these cards really simple as the DSP is pearlised and shimmery and when I added anything more to the card front it just seemed to detract from that.
I adore the beauty and simplicity of these cards, and I love finding another reason to use this stunning DSP xx
The brand new Frosted Floral Suite is absolutely gorgeous. I love everything about it, from the stamp set and dies to the stunning pearlised DSP. It even coordinates with my favourite colours – blackberry bliss, gray granite and tranquil tide!
It is not a Christmas set in the traditional sense, but I adore the wintery feel to the floral images and of course you can make this set work throughout the year by changing the ribbons, embellishments and accessories. I just love it when you can use a suite in multiple ways!
For a first look, I decided to keep this card very simple and make it all about the DSP. The new tranquil tide velvet ribbon is so luxurious and the frosted and clear epoxy droplets compliment the suite perfectly.
The Frosted Floral Suite will be available to purchase when the new autumn/winter catalogue goes live on 5th September xx
