Swedish House Crafts DT | Laserowe Arctic Sweeties Christmas card

Hello, everyone!


I'm sharing a Christmas card here as well as on the Swedish House Crafts blog that I have made using the new Laserowe Love Arctic Sweeties complete collection. There are 6 12"x 12" double sided sheets as well as 3 strips of 12" x 2" double sided cut out motifs. 

I used Gummiapan old paper die to cut and layer the papers to the card front.

Links to the products used can be found at the end of this post.


I took one of the strips, and cut around the penguin, and the polar bear.
I added glamour dust to the purple heart, and the polar bears scarf. 


I used Arctic Sweeties paper to die cut a Gummiapan stitched scalloped circle, and put it to one side.
One one of the 12" x 12" design sheets has 12 gorgeous images. I chose the polar bear image.
I cut the image using Roxstamps stitched circle, and matted it onto a larger stitched circle using "Arctic Sweeties" papers, and adhered that onto the scalloped circle.

I used glamour dust on the pom pom of the bears hat.


I cut around the banner from one of the sheets, and cut out some paper letters from my stash to spell the word Noel.


The Laserowe chipboard snowflake garland that I used is one of three sizes included in the pack. I chose the larger garland, and decorated it with pearl flatbacks from my stash!


The flowers are from my stash! 


Inside the card is decorated to complement the front.

Swedish House Crafts Laserowe Love baby Boy Exploding Box And Giveaway

Hello, lovely blogger friend's.

I'm showcasing my project for Swedish House Crafts here as well as on Swedish House Crafts blog.
😊😊😊😊😊


I have made an exploding box using some of the new gorgeous Laserowe Love papers, and chipboards that are now available to buy in store. There is so much to choose from at really great prices. If you've never heard of Laserowe before then I highly recommend that you take a look in store.

I used Neenah desert storm cardstock to make the base, and lid of the box,

Links to the products that I have used on my exploding box can be found at the end of my post.


 I decorated each of the panels with Laserowe Love Vintage baby boy complete collection papers.



I die cut five Gummiapan pierced scalloped circles using Neenah desert storm cardstock, and I die cut five Roxstamps pierced round dies using white card. I matted one onto the other, and adhered each one onto the centre of each of the panels with 1mm foam tape.

There is a sheet of nine gorgeous images included inside the paper stack. I cut around four of them, and adhered each one to the centre of each of the circles using 2mm foam tape.


I assembled Laserowe chipboard 3D elephant with pva glue, and painted it completely with black gesso. Once the gesso was dry, I brushed blue wax over the elephant leaving the wheels black. I adhered a large white pearl flatback to the centre of each of the wheels. I attached a length of twine through the elephants trunk, and adhered the elephant to the centre of the box.


To decorate the lid I adhered a Gummiapan stitched square die cut on top of the design paper.
I used Laserowe chipboard elephant toy for the top. I painted the base of elephant in the same way as I did for the 3D elephant. Once dry, I adhered the detailed chipboard elephant onto the base.

The flowers, seam binding that I used to make a bow, and the silver bear charm are from my stash!



There is a gorgeous set of tags included in the paper stack.
I cut around one of the tags, and threaded a length of twine through the eyelet. I adhered the twine underneath the bow, and adhered the bear charm to the centre.


On to the exciting part. I am giving away my exploding box to one lucky person in our Facebook group Swedish House Crafters lounge. Everyone has a chance to win, but first you will need to join our facebook group, and leave a comment mentioning to whom you would like to give the exploding box to or maybe you would like it for yourself? 
The giveaway is open for 7 days. After that time we will draw a winner in the Swedish House Crafters lounge group. I will also announce the winner in a short blog post on here. You can find the link to join Swedish House Crafters lounge group below.

Swedish House Crafts DT - Laserowe Chipboard Santa's Sleigh


Hello, lovely blogger friend's.

A while back Suha sent me Laserowe chipboard Santa's sleigh. I love the festive season. It's my favourite time of the year! I have decorated the sleigh using some mixed media products. 

TIP; Familiarise yourself with all of the pieces before assembling the sleigh with glue.

All of the mixed media products are from my own stash!

The link to the sleigh can be found at the end of my post.


I assembled the sleigh using pva glue, and left it to dry before painting it with white Gesso.

Once the Gesso had dried. I brushed a coating of white crackle paste over the sleigh, I did not use crackle paste on the runners. When the crackle paste had fully dried I used a bubble stencil and applied white texture paste to each of the side panels of the sleigh.

I wanted to add some colour to the sleigh. I dry brushed rose gold metallique wax over the entire sleigh adding a lot more of the wax to the runners.


Here you can see the sleigh at a different angle.


I painted some metal findings with white Gesso, and adhered them to the sleigh. I added some art stones, and dry brushed all of the findings with with aged brass metallique wax.

That's all from me today. I hope that I have inspired you to try out something different using Laserowe Santa's sleigh. Maybe you might like to see more Laserowe products. You can find them HERE

Thank you for stopping by today!
