Punch Art Fun - Look in the Book - pages 35 to 40 - the Christmas ones

If you've got your book open, you'll see most of these.

Some are exactly the same, some are slightly different.

Some take a lot of fine motor skills!

And a good pair of tweezers.

Or a Jewel Picker. We use them at Photo Continental - they're actually for beading, but we use them for picking up the little bits. Marvy makes them. Thanks, Marvy.

I love Christmas and when I get on a theme, I keep going. Apart from the flowers (6 pages too), the Christmas section is the biggest in the book.

It only comes around once a year, but it gets hit hard with the crafting, so a lot of ideas need to be at one's fingertips. Yes?

Love this, it's one of my favourites.

I love all the hanging bits.

Just realised it's kinda like my ribbon from this year. Hmmm, that's funny, no wonder I like it.

Ah, and the big tree on page 40. I enjoyed the challenge of finding something different to make for each tree.

That candle flame is a dog claw, I believe.

Cute bits to finish with.

The Christmas section has always been one of my favourites. Lots of little bits and lots of colour. And so many other ideas have come out of these six pages...

If I was going to sit down and remake one of the cards on those six pages - remake it because I think it's cute and I want to make it again - I'd make the Christmas Swag on page 39. Like I said, it reminds me of my ribbon from this year, so it's fitting. Plus, I like all the bits.

The other I'd make again is the Christmas Tree on page 36. I've actually made many of those because it was a huge seller in the shop I stocked them in back in the day. No wonder, look at all the bits on it. Obviously I was into making cards with lots of bits back then :o) I remember loving doing it. Still do, even though I don't do them as much now.

Okay, that's it for the Christmas section. Pages 41 and 42 are Shadow Sheets. Important pages to include, but they're self explanatory, so no further explanations needed.

Let's finish with some shots of the back cover. Love seeing all these happy colours and happy faces. So fun.

Big sigh. I love this book. Always have.

Thanks for sharing the Look in the Book journey with me. I enjoyed it, hope you did too.
