On Friday I received my first Design Team pack from Scrapbooking Haven. It was so exciting because it arrived with a big order I placed at their recent sale, so I got lots of goodies at once.
My design team pack consisted of a lovely set of christmas papers by Teresa Collins. If you have not yet checked on this range, its a must. They are the most stunning christmas papers I have ever worked with (not that I have done a lot of christmas layouts). My pack also included some lovely Kaisercraft christmas embellisments.
As these papers were so lovely, for my first layout, I decided to scrap the most special christmas I have had, and that was the white Christmas my husband and I spent with his family in Zakopane, Poland in 2008. This particular layout includes 2 photos taken on Christmas eve, when the two of us went to the top of one of the mountains by cable car and enjoyed a lovely few hours of "couple" time. The crazy thing was our thermals were in the wash that day and it was about minus 5 degrees or colder up the top of the mountain so wearing normal jeans with our snow jackets didn't quite cut it. Especially not when I stepped in snow up to my knee when moving out of the way of a car. Was pretty funny though. It looked like stable ground until I sunk right down to the knees and needed to be pulled back out again.
So here is my layout:
Kaisercraft Aubergine paper blooms
Kaisercraft Dear Santa embellishment pack
Teresa Collins Noel collection papers: Red Damask, Sheet Music, Definitions, Cards & Notes,Tags & Bordes
All of these products are available in store at Scrapbooking Haven, along with many other fab products. The store is closed for a couple of weeks for stocktake and due to illness but there is a great sneak peak of future products on their facebook page.
Also be sure to check out the current challenges running at the Scrapbooking Haven forum. Amy has just released a new April challenge a bit early, A Moment In Time, which encourages you to share your first ever scrap layout with your most recent for a chance to win a prize.
Now off to contemplate my next project with these fab festive products.
