Craft Consortium- Winter Woodland New Release


Hi everyone, today for my DT post with Craft Consortium I am so pleased to be finally able to share with you all my first project using the new enchanting Winter Woodland paper pad by Hackney and co. This pad is full of exquisite hand illustrated floral designs and woodland creatures and also has co-ordinating Silicone Stamps and the most gorgeous small metal acorns that are a must for any Christmas project.


When I first browsed through this paper pad I felt transported into a magical Woodland as I oohed and aahed at the papers which also reminded me of a scene from the film Bambi which I watched as a child. I knew then I wanted to replicate my thoughts of this Pad within a mixed media styled book. I decided I wanted my book to look quite plain on the outside so the magic of the Woodland came to life upon opening it.


My book was made by covering chipboard for my covers and the pages were formed in a concertina effect using my Scorpal board and gluing the strips together to form the basis of my book. It also helped for building a 3D dimensional effect.


Inside you can see I used more of the beautiful papers, fussy cutting some of the characters to build my winter scene adding lots of Snowtex, Glamour Dust, Glass Glitter, Stickles and Snowflake Paste.


Touches of Lace from the Always and Forever collection have been used around the inside of my book and the outside binding.

Here is a photo show of my book that Rachael from Craft Consortium kindly made for me sharing a lot more pictures of my book that my Husband had taken.

Hope you enjoy and I'd love to hear your comments.

I'm sure you have also fallen in love with this Winter Woodland Paper Pad and are desperate to get it. It will be launching on Create and Craft soon and will initially be exclusive to them. Shortly afterwards it will be available directly from Craft Consortium and craft shops. Just keep an eye on social media for launch date.

Do check out Craft Consortium and follow them on Facebook and Instagram for regular inspiration, giveaways and more inspiration of the Winter Woodland pad from the design team.
