New Autumn Winter Products Blog Hop Today

Hello and welcome to The Craft Spa for the Jems Monthly Blog Hop featuring new products from the Autumn Winter (aka Holiday) catalogue.
Now really I should have called this post... Here are a Few of my Favourite Things... as in true Amanda style I have combined my 3 favourite new stamp sets! And all on a wreath...
So the wreath is produced using Holly Berry Happiness... perfect 2 step stamps for the job... and comes with a matching punch...

White embossed Seasonal Bells on gold foil... available in wood and clear mount...with a matching punch too

See that shine on the bells....
Then back to Holly Berry Happiness for the stamped and punched holly leaves and berries to finish off the bells

All mounted onto an Extra Large Square card to keep it simple but to give the WOW factor... 
And now it is time to pass you onto Julie... who has something special in store for you...
Or if you are going backwards... here is Sarah's blog for yet more loveliness...
