Merry Monday - Lots of Super CAS Trimming the Town cards...

Really love these simple little cards... 

But before I start... hows about a Craft Spa Trimming the Town Retreat to you at home? I'm beyond excited about the project ideas I have!!! Still working on the detail... but here are the headlines...

(      Ten hours + worth of projects for you to complete at home over days and times to suit yourself… Starting in October. Cost expected to be in the range of £60-95 plus P&P. Instruction expected to be a mix of written pdf with photos and maybe even some videos and Zoom sessions subject to partakers preferences…

Individual project kits also to be made available if of interest… For example one advent calendar kit could be c £40

Will include products & any templates required to complete the projects. The retreat will be based around the Stampin’ Up! Trimming the Town suite… so the Trimming the Town Papers (RRP £10.75) with Home Together dies (RRP £32) OR Coming Home bundle (RRP £44) along with cardstock, ribbon and embellishments (RRP £12) will be included…  Christmas Countdown advent calendar box (RRP£28) is included as an option (as many of you have one already !) Some other tools & basics will also be required

Will include a variety of projects to suit a wide range of papercrafting tastes and levels – such as fancy fold and simple/bulk cards, home d├ęcor (eg Box Frame, fairylights), advent calendar, mini book AND table treat boxes/bags. Make as many  - or as few - as you wish…
Please just email me to register your interest at this time...as I need to achieve a minimum number of crafty guests to make it work....
And so back to today's share! I think a lot of these little cards will be going out from here this christmas... as I do like to sit there of an evening in front of the TV just cutting things out....

Houses and greeting simple cut out of the wonderful Trimming The Town papers...

Using this sheet ... So with 2 sheets of paper in a pack... I think you can make 120 of these cards...  Bear in mind you can use some of the partial ones at the edges too...
Though being honest the snowflakes in sky pattern on the other side is SO useful too... but more of that on another day.... as you will be spoilt for choice as to which side to use!!
And this sheet...though I reckon you will have to stamp some greetings to make  all 120... unless you want to use french, german etc ones
Then stick to a 7cm square piece of Whisper White... I have used 3D Stampin' Dimensionals on the middle one...

And then onto a 7.4cm square of Poppy Parade... (though I have just realised that I used Real Red in error!)

And finally onto a 9.9cm square Thick Whisper White card blank (so 3 from one sheet of A4)
So simples!

Come back tomorrow for some more tips and options for these...
