Well the luck gods are certainly not on our side at the moment here at Your Creative Wings headquarters. But we soldiering on. Unfortunately the website is still down.
We like to thank those who are putting up with the inconvenience of the website being down and still taking the time to email an order through. Thank you. 
We're sorry to tease you with glimpses of the new Christmas range but our Creative Team has been hard at work making some gorgeous pages etc to inspire you. 

Here's what Anne-Marie has been up too.

Christmas 2009

I absolutely adore the Midnight Core Kit Edition from Becky Higgins Project Life and have used it for my entire 2014 album. I purchase these digital files from the same designer, Liz Tamanaha of Paislee Press,to create a page for our first Christmas as a family of seven in 2009. They printed out really well on 200gsm card on my trusty, old Canon Pixma printer. 

Your Creative Wings products used; Mo Christmas Tree YCW20062, Geo Pointers Xmas YCW20064, Reindeer and Lights Sm YCW20074, Hanging Mason Jars and Lights Xmas Left YCW20023, Word - Joy 3.5cm YCW20072, Christmas Badges 1 YCW20028, Christmas Discs Sm YCW20063. Numerals - Typewriter Sm YCW5005.

The Christmas themed designs from Your Creative Wings are the perfect finishing touches to help tell the story. They really are the perfect addition to your pocket page style layouts. Occasionally I do still like to emboss or paint or ink them... but left raw is still my very favourite finish. It is all in keeping with my keep it simple, tell the story philosophy.  I used the Hanging jars and Lights on my title card because they fit perfectly. The moustache Christmas tree is the cutest thing I ever saw,,, except for maybe the reindeer with the Christmas lights caught in his antlers. He is just too adorable for words. 

Happiness is a haircut. 
I had a play with some mess to create this next layout.  Layering, ink, paint, beads, sequins, metal charms, buttons, gems and lots of  Your Creative Wings chipboard designs to tell the story of my little tomboy who wanted her hair chopped. Despite my reservations we made the appointment and she was excited. Happiness is a haircut. 

Your Creative Wings products used; Chevrons Mini YCW4005, Happiness Words YCW1051, Corner Scroll YCW7011, Sprig Set 2 YCW2028.
Other products used: TBA 

I chose an older patterned paper from the Simple Stories Fabulous range because I loved the colour and it just seemed to fit with the colouring in this photo.  I love the YCW scroll corners and those chevron arrows are one of my favourite designs. The leaves were an afterthought added after the flowers. The script style word was the perfect sentiment... there are plenty more words to choose from. 

Thanks for inspiring us Anne-Marie

Until Next time
Happy Creating
