New Release @ The Crafty Pad

Mornings beautiful peoples :)

I am sailing in this morning to showcase to you ...
Crafty Pad Designs ... 
October New Releases! 
And your chance to win these!

Christmas is right around the corner and our lovely boss lady has been busy on the drawing board to help us all cater for the season with THREE gorgeous new images!

First up is Christmas Pine Cones & Holly {here}
Oh la la ! I {love} this image!
And instantly am thinking about Christmas just looking at it!

Next up we have the Christmas Tree Trio! {here}
Loving this fun and hip image too! 
This would be a great image to paper pierce!

And last but not least,
We have the Christmas Baubles! - In 3 color sets!

Green and Red Baubles {here}

All gorgeous don't you agree?

So which one captured my heart for the release ?
I fell in love with all of them! but the Gold & Silver Christmas Baubles really took my breath away and inspired me to try my hand at altering / decorating a candle so here we go!

 I have tried this in the past and it was an epic fail!  My printer seemed to be too heavy handed and would constantly rip my tissue paper.  I recently brought some crepe paper for another project and a little light bulb went off in my head to try using this instead as it seemed 'less delicate' so ... I did and it worked!  Dear hubby looked at me like I was a looney jumping all over my craft room all ecstatic but hey ho :)

I bling-ed the design up a little by adding some tiny pearls around the snowflake / star border and down the bauble chain.  A touch of gold ribbon wrapped around the base and wella!  I now have a gorgeous candle ready for the Christmas table that is just going to look delightful!

Now ... I know I have taken your breaths away with my little candle lol
