Bugaboo Christmas In July Day 3 – Anything But A Card

Day three already at Catch the Bug’s Christmas in July challenges and time to abandon cards for something else. I have made an A3 piece of wrapping paper to share with you.SAM_4344(watermarked).JPG

Bugaboo Digi Stamps –  Christmas Words – Hohoho
Polychromo pencils
A3 printer paper
Docrafts Digital Designer software (free download available)

Use the paper maker option of the software to make the design at A3 size and print off.

Colour images with Polychromo pencils.

It’s a lot quicker to describe how to do it than it was to colour in those images. I could have added more but I think I had enough to colour as it was!

Come and join in the fun at the Catch the Bug Blog with a different challenge every day there is bound be be at least one you could enter or why not be daring and have a go at all of them.

About Pippa

I started crafting at an early age though not always successfully, my pillowcase tennis dress has, thankfully, disappeared into history. Funnily sewing is not something I enjoy! My favourite crafty activity has to be card making, especially stamping which I have been doing for over 20 years and am still a beginner, there is always something new to learn. I also enjoy knitting and crochet. I am not an artist, cannot even draw a straight line with a ruler, but I love colouring in, which is why stamping appeals so much. I am married, have recently retired from being a part time HLTA at a local village primary school, have two grown up daughters, both married and a mad cat called Finnegan. That, in a nutshell, is me.
