Getting into the holiday spirit with a hop !



Hi, Michelle here.

I am lucky enough to be a designer for The Robin's Nest AND Helmar designer! 

I was most excited to be able to play along for this hop team two amazing products!

So... seeings as how the theme of this hop is "Home for the Holidays" I got busy creating some cards all ready for Christmas. I do like to be organised and love to send homemade cards every year.

However.. as most of you may know I am NOT a traditional colour themed scrapper.
I tend to prefer to make cards out of whatever paper I have on hand and them make it suit the theme.

So I dug into my design team boxes from The Robin's Nest and Helmar and created four cards from A4 recycled card.

Because I like to keep the cards quick and simple when I have to create quite a few I tend to make the card 4" x 4" in size. That way they fit nicely into a standard size C6 envelope too for postage if they have a bit of dimension to them.



The Robin's Nest Products used:
Fleur French Vanilla
Loves Me Glitter
White Glittered Flourish
Dew Drops - In Love in Italy
