Welcome back, I just held my annual Christmas Sampler class last weekend. This year is a summer Christmas theme. All the festive summer feels with trees, caravan and wreaths in Evening Evergreen, Soft Succulent, Pool Party, Real Red & Gold.

Summer Christmas Sampler

Firstly, I opted for the traditional 9 squares sampler design this year, using the largest of the square dies from Stylish Shapes Dies to mount on the Evening Evergreen 7.6cm x 7.6cm (3″ x 3″) squares.

Secondly, this photo illustrates the little shadows created by mounting each square on dimensionals, perfect!

Lastly, the Christmas wreath was stamped in Evening Evergreen with Real Red berries. Puff paint was added to each berry and heated to puff up. Therefore the red ink  turns the puffed paint a little pink. Beautiful coupled with the music embossed background I used it as my center square on my Christmas sampler.

Others in the class used a different square in the center. In the end each one was layed out differently.

That’s a wrap on classes for the year. However, I still have more to share so check back next week.

I’m involved in an International Mini Catalogue launch on 6th January via Facebook. So keep an eye out for that, there will be more information coming out soon.
