Here are my design team samples from the embellishments kit which include the most luxurious 12 x12" paper pad and a matching 6 x6" paper pad and a pad of base cards,pearls,lace.stamps.doilies.buttons.brads and toppers. It was like all my Christmases had come at once when this was delivered. It really does do the name of Downton Abbey proud,again it is luxury with a capital L.
My first card is one that shows of the Downton brand and was made using papers from the tripple cd and some of the excellent die's in this range

Good morning my crafty friends,I hope you are all well and managing to gets lots of crafting done. I imagine you have all started on your Christmas makes by now. Where as I have been to busy making design team sample for Crafter's Companion's Die'sire team and this time I have been in the lucky position to have been working with two collections from the Downton Abbey range. The first is the Luxury card kit,which is exclusive to Create and Craft tv for the Crafter's companion 10th Birthday week.
This kit is luxury with a capital L and you can make at least 50 cards with it and it includes everything you need. So even a brand new crafter who hasn't got any other crafting materials can get started straight from the box,which makes it a perfect gift for lovers of the series and for friends who have expressed a interest in trying card making for themselves. It includes all the embellishments and even a tape pen to stick it all down with. I have to say it is the first complete kit I have ever seen.
Here are the samples I made from this kit and I must say they only took a few minutes each to make.
