Fabulous Friday - New Releases!

Hi everyone.  Hope you have all had a fabulous week.

We went to see the Minions movie earlier in the week - it was so fun.

I have some fabulous new releases by Polkadoodles to share with you today. They are available for pre-order now!  Nikky has been busy drawing up two fabulous new collections and these I have to say are amazing!

We have the new Studio 12 Picknix Collection 3 - Nordic Winter.

And the fabulous and cute Twiggy & Toots Festive Fun Collection.

Both of these collections are so versatile and full of amazing yumminess for you to drool over and get those Christmas items (yep I said it!) made nice and early so you are lovely and organised this year.

Over the next few days, I will show you some of the samples I have been making.

For today's make I wanted to share a triple easel card I made using this great tutorial from Splitcoast Stampers.  Using the Studio 12 Picknix 3 - Nordic Winter collection.

I used a Spellbinders large scalloped circle  to cut the pieces for my easel card.  All the edges of all the layers have been inked up.  

There are fabulous papers, frames and images in this wonderful collection.  Very much a traditional collection with lots of ephemera, embellishments, cut files, papers and digital elements.  It really is a gorgeous collection.

Here's a sneak peek of another card I made - I will share with you in my next post :-)

Also, it's the start of a new challenge over at Polkadoodles and Team B is up with their fabulous inspiration.  The theme this fortnight is 2 or More Patterned Papers - why not go check out what they have been up to.

I am entering this card in the following challenges.
