Krafty Chevrons

Hello lovely people,

It's time for a new challenge at Top Tip Tuesday and our theme this time is...


We are sponsored by Sweet Stamp Store with a prize of a $10 gift certificate.

So, chevrons... I like chevrons... but after an extensive search of my craft room I came up with precisely zero chevrons :-(
Then I remembered some Christmas paper I had with chevrons - woot!

Every year I say I will make one or two really simple batches of designs to send to most people on my Christmas card list and just a few fancy ones for family.  So far, I have failed every year.

This may be the year I manage it as here is a super simple design with absolutely no stitching or colouring because those are the things that take me ages!

I was dying to play with my new Christmas stamp sets from LOTV; isn't this the most elegant tree?

I hope you will pop over to Top Tip Tuesday and check out the fabulous creations and of course, the top tips from the rest of the team.

Thanks for visiting and I really appreciate any comments that you leave,

Challenges I am playing along with;
1.  Simon Says Stamp (use Kraft)
2.  LOTV (anything goes)

This is really fab Kat, and yes, a great design for making a batch of!
I've found my limit is three of any particular design (at a push...) after that I'm bored and want to move on to something else, lol. x

This is really different for you, I love it though and that tree is really elegant with the gems. Ah, it's ok, I've spotted some pink in the papers so it's ok. Phew! I was worried about you then! :0)
