Docrafts essentials...

Every two months, Docrafts bring out a fantastic array of new products to demonstrate with in the stores. As a designer I get my kit and set on making samples.. and here are a few that I have taken to my first demo of this two month loop.

Sorry for the photos, they were taken on my mobile. But I hope it gives you some sort of idea what you can do with the new products.

This was created using the beautiful new card blanks that are available. These have a pearlescent finish to them and are overlaid with the Christmas wording.. just beautiful.

I used the new Christmas range of products and combined it with the Strictly Party papers. The border was made using the multishaper punch.

I love the simplicity of this card. I have a thing about embossed designs, and of course, I love the white on white look. Occasionally I will ink over the design, but not too often.

I embossed the card, and I also embossed the image so I had a little border to cut around so I knew that the image fitted perfectly into the frame.

Last but not least - a simple, stylish little card. This was made using several offcuts - the paper, the card mount, etc... so I just teamed it up with the new fab Dimensions stickers and this little card was done and dusted. Quick and Easy Peasy!

I hope you like the new products just as much as I do.. I will share more when I get chance to get a photo of them.. I've been busy this week preparing for a demo over at CraftWorld in the Lowry Centre, Manchester on Saturday, but also had a show on Monday at Create and Craft, and have more this coming week.

Please leave me a comment so I can nip over to say hello to you on your bloglet.. I love blog hopping!
