Stampin’ Up! Demonstrator Pootles – Summer Camping Candle Box Tutorial using Christmas Paper
Oh you so know what I’m like for adding a little touch of irony to my crafting, so when I decided that I wanted to send Mum and Dad and Luke on a camping trip with some anti mosquito citronella candles, it tickled that bit of me that likes irony to use some festive Christmas Paper.
Merry Moments is the DSP that’s in our permanent collection this year, and to be fair, only a couple of sheets are very obviously designed for Christmas, so it wasn’t as hard to do as one might first think…
I like the cute caravan from the Project Life Let’s Get Away stamp set, so that was a bit of a given (Mum and Dad don’t camp in tents anymore, they have a gorgeous new caravan!), and the flash of a different contrasting colour took the paper right away from Christmas and into seasonally now!
I hope you like the video, and that if you’re camping this year, that the mosquitos stay away…!
