Christmas is just around the corner and these gorgeous new Tim Holtz Distress Paints are perfect for adding a festive feel to your holiday projects. Pine Needles and Evergreen Bough are two subtle shades of green that are great when used with the Aged Mahogany and Festive Berries, both are two rich hues of red. The Stormy Sky and Iced Spruce colours are perfect to add a modern twist and break up the traditional Christmas colour scheme.

Each paint has a built in sponge dabber so no paint brush or clean up is necessary. The dabbers are great as they only dispense paint not draw it back in so colours are easily blended and there is no risk of mixing colours in the bottles. Distress Paints are fluid water-based acrylic paints that have a matte finish and paint will always dry flat, no thick paint feeling. Paints can be used with chipboard, paper, metal, glass, plastic and stamps.

Distress Paint’s have been created to react with water so you can create unique blends and texture on your layouts. Layer your Distress Paint with other Tim Holtz products like Distress Inks and Stains to create different colours and effects. For more information, visit

Guest Post – Claire Daly on Travel Scrapbooking with Stampin’ Up!®’s New Card Thinlits Dies

As soon as I saw these new Card Thinlits Dies from Stampin’ Up! I knew they would be perfect for adding lots of flippin’ fun to my scrapbooking. I’d just returned from a fabulous trip to theUSA, so worked with a travel theme using the very on trend I am Me Designer Series Paper and coordinating Around the World Stamp set. I’ve been a scrapbooker for many years before I became a Stampin’ Up! Demonstrator, and it was the great coordination between colours and products that originally attracted me to Stampin’ Up!. It’s so easy to create fabulous scrapbook pages when you know exactly what colour cardstock, ink and markers will match your papers and the coordinating products.

The first project is a 12×12 page. I created lots of extra space by using the Label Card Thinlits Dies for hidden journaling and extra photos. You get lots of extra dies with the Thinlits sets so I was able to use these arrows and labels, along with the coordinating stamp set on the layout. I love the trendy chevron patterns in this double sided paper. You get 12 sheets in the pack (2 each of 6 double sided designs) perfect for travel and everyday life scrapbooking.

The arrow clip from Stampin’ Up!’s  Hang Up Cute Clips holds the hidden journalingsection closed.

Next up is a mini album of the sights of LA, using a combination of the Circle Card Thinlits dies and some additional cardstock. I love how the extra photos fit in the swing and the Stampin’ Up! 2.5 inch circle punch is the perfect fit to punch your photos or paper. I was also able to create custom chipboard letters to match the colours in my paper, using the Stampin’ Up! Typeset Alphabet Bigz Die.

The Card Thinlits dies can also be used for cards of course, so to finish up these projects I made a thankyou card for the opportunity to attend the Stampin’ Up! trip, which my vacation was added onto.

Inspired for some scrapbooking? You can purchase all these fabulous products from your Stampin’ Up! Demonstrator. If you don’t have a Demonstrator you can search for one here.

One of the hottest trends at the moment is sequins, and we are absolutely loving these sequins assortments from Jenni Bowlin Studios! These sequins come in four different assortments – Butterfly, Pot of Gold, Classic and Doily. The Butterfly sequins have classic colours like red, clear, yellow and gold, and are great to use on feminine layouts. Pot of Gold is an assortment of cute gold sequins and as gold is currently popping up everywhere these are very much on trend. Use the Classic assortment for subtle finishing touches on any layout as the colours are versatile yet striking. Then there are these gorgeous Doily assortments that scream vintage and the fantastic texture and colours of these sequins means they can be used in combination with anything you like! Be creative with your sequins – staple them, stitch them, stick them, use them as masks and even put them in little vellum or glassine bags and create your own confetti embellishments!
