Cardmaking and Papercraft - - Celeb Xmas Trends -

This year, Christ­mas die de­sign­ing has been based on one sin­gle premise rather than a trend, tech­nique or colour scheme. I asked peo­ple what was im­por­tant to them and the over­whelm­ing re­sponse that I re­ceived was that they wanted dies that could be used all year round, not just for Christ­mas! I have tried to ap­proach every de­sign with that in mind, to give the most ver­sa­tile die pos­si­ble – so, for ex­am­ple, my Christ­mas an­gel can eas­ily be turned into a bride by re­mov­ing the wings. This method of de­sign­ing has also al­lowed me to branch out in the colour pal­ette that I have used for my sam­ples as well, which I found in­cred­i­bly lib­er­at­ing, as it al­lowed my cre­ative mind to re­ally run wild. I love that I’ve pro­duced a col­lec­tion that can, and hope­fully will, be used all year round.
