Holiday Thyme blitz!

holiday thyme treeI have had a pack of the Holiday Thyme paper since it came out at the beginning of November and have used it here and there but this past week it has gotten a hammering! And the thing I love the most is how different all of the projects are that I used it for - you all know how much I love versatility! Anyway, since the promotion for this paper finishes up in 9 days, I thought it would be a good idea to show you some things that I have made so you can stock up before it's too late!!

This first one is an adaptation of a sweet card idea I found at Amy's blog here . My tree has fewer "levels" and I kind of bent each strip of paper at the bottom so that it sticks out a bit.

I thought this card would be a perfect place to use some of the gorgeous patterns in the Holiday Thyme DP and I have used 3 of the different designs here.

Cardstock colours are True Thyme, Old Olive and More Mustard (for the star from Hung Up on the Holidays). The only inks used are More Mustard and Basic Black for the greeting from All Year Cheer ! and I sponged some Old Olive around each edge of all of the strips of the tree.

list books This next one is another borrowed idea - the best ones always are!! This one I saw on kwernerdesign blog - my FAVOURITE blog to visit for inspiration!

These are list books with little cardstock pocket that they all slide into for carrying around in your handbag - perfect for this time of year, season of list-making as it is!

I just love love love little books and things and can see myself using this idea for some other things too - my mind is already mulling over the possibilities!

holiday thyme tinThe last idea is using some tins that I picked up for $2 each at the Red Dot Store! GREAT for customised gifts filled with all sorts of delicious possibilities...... So here's my Christmas one.

I took the photo a little bit from the side so you can see the yummy wide grosgrain from the summer mini catalogue. Ribbon girl that I am, I had to get all three colours that are available! I am VERY hopeful that our new catalogue in April will bring us even more colours in this gorgeous ribbon!

Cardstock used here is Cranberry Crisp, Old Olive and Confetti Cream. The Peace Joy Love stamp is from All Year Cheer I. I used my slit punch to nip off the corners of the top two levels of cardstock and used pewter brads from my Hodgepodge Hardware in the bottom layer.

The lid of the tin has a little raised up circle in the centre, perfectly sized for the largest circle punch! So I added a punched out circle of the poinsettia design DP, layered it onto a bigger circle of Old Olive and stuck another pewter brad in the centre.
