Amazing month at Robin's Nest

First of all the product for the month of November was amazing. I use lots of it to share the 1st of the month
the above cards all with tutorials. This was my DT application that I submitted to
hopefully be able to return to the team for the 2nd term.

Here is the link and tutorials if your interested. 

Here is the link to the STOREChristmas CollectionClassic Glitter  SwirlDew Drops Diamond ShapesDew Drops Solidsto view many more items. 


Then......... we had an amazing opportunity for a sponsored blog hop with Smoothfoam which highlighted their foam ornaments. I used some more of my November products on some of the projects.   
Here  is the link to the above projects where you can find the tutorial for the wreath  also.


That was just the start to my month using Robin's Nest products.

Now the fun begins because this month because we are linking up with "tonic studios" and the their amazing punches.
My punch is called Simplicity Pattern Vine Strip.
I started with a Family xmas page:

 Lots of fun punching borders and a circular accent along with some fussy cut trees and glittered snowflakes.. and added 
Robin's Nest gem stones.

In this section you can see the details in the circular accent and border using the tonic punch... and also the Robin's Nest title using the ... alpha letters.

In this section the gem stone decorated and fussy cut tree has a great gem stone star on top too.
****** Up next is a page called "HO HO HO".

This page boasts lots of borders. Some are just strips of border patterns cut from the Robin's Nest paper, some are sparkle cut Robin's Nest paper punched with tonic punch... and some smaller thinner pieces are a group of strips that sparkle.
Also the right side of this page has many 
fussy cut sparkled trees.
The background was masked and smeared with some gesso to give more texture to the amazing tree branch paper.
The HO HO HO is cricut cut using Robin's Nest scraps and has added stickles to them.

In this close up you see the sparkle paper punched and the sparkle strip accented with white dew drops.

This Happy Holiday page started with a base background piece called
Flame Glitter Swirls and then going through my stash I started cutting strips from the papers that had great lines in the design of the papers...  and some of the lined paper that was a mix of regular and sparkle lines. 
These were staggered and spaced to form the background layers. 
Photos were matted with black to pop on red... 
and some black snowflakes were cricut cut.

In this close up you see the strips and snowflakes with the added white dew drops.

Last but not least is a simple but cool card.

Just lots of scraps.. layered for colour... 
then by drawing a rough tree shape on the back of the 
green paper.. using twine instead of thread.. weave back and forth forming the shape of tree... so easy.
Next and quick SRM sticker title and lots of fun coloured 
dew drops  to decorate the tree.


Sure hope you enjoyed my many projects so far for the month of November using Robin's Nest products and tonic punch too.

Thanks for stopping by and be sure to visit again later this month for some more amazing fun things I will 
share with yet another tutorial for a mini card holder,
