One Stitch at a Time Challenge 74

This week at One Stitch at a Time, we want you to use a digi! That's it - use something digital. And we're sponsored by
This week, I've been doubly lucky - because, not only did I get to use some lovely die cuts from our sponsor, I also got to play with some gorgeous Christmas papers from Panda Bear Designs - Winter Nights 1.

I wanted to use the three die cut 'scenes' in a single project, so I made a Chrismas book - a mini Christmas story.

 I've used six out of the seven papers in the set - and combined them digitally to make the pages, adding the words of some traditional Christmas carols to match the die cuts. The two stars are part of the die cut set, and I coated them in Versamark ink and then brushed on some Perfect Pearl in gold.

I finished the book by stitching the various pages together and then added some gold ribbon and a bow.

Hope you can join us this week.

I would like to enter this into the following challenges:

Fussy and Fancy where the theme is 'Christmas in August',
Craft Us Crazy where anything goes in August,
Crafty Purple Frog where 'anything goes but a card',
Crafts and Me where 'anything goes',
Kelley's Kids where 'anything goes',
