Deer Scenes...

Happy Thursday,

Its finally launch day for my First ever Christmas die range I can't say how excited I am to share this with you all! Tube into Hochanda ton night at 6pm to see the full range and all the other products we have squirrelled away especially for the launch!

Today I am sharing a die set close to my hear the Deer Scenes which is tied here with the outer die form the Time Flies die set, although its a pocket watch it makes a perfect bauble.

Here is the same die set used with the Scene box Card die set to make a shaker card / box/ frame.

I love the fact that as well as the deers and tress on the base there is a Deer family separately as well ( as used above on the front of the box).

Heres I used one of the strips for the centre of the snowy bauble below is the other strip die again used as a centre.

Shows launch tonight at 6pm and 8pm with fiercer shows through tomorrow at 9am, 1pm and final call at 5pm



  1. Morning John, hurrah launch day is finally here, you have been showing us so many teasers and today we finally get to see them all in their glory, oh I am liking very, very much the samples today, the deer family are a must and I really like the use of the time dies to create the baubles, will be watching you today. Good luck, and I bet you have a sell out

    Stay safe, healthy and happy, hugs, June Smith xxx
