It's time for tea at Downton Abbey

For those of you crafters out there who watch Downton are going to love this!!

Crafter's Companion have secured the licence to produce Downton Abbey craft items and they are launching the range on Create and Craft next week. The range includes all sorts of things including stamps, CDs, embossing folders and dies, so there will be something to suit every type of paper crafter.

I was very lucky to be able to play with some of the stamps and CDs, and here is one of the items that I made....a tea bag gift box.
The idea is that the tea bags kind of pop up when you open the lid, so this is what it looks like open.
How do you like the pattern on the box? These are papers from one of the CDs. It is basically broken down in to a category for each character and they each have their own paper range - beautifully coordinated, as you can see. The added bonus is that the male character are included too, so there are some lovely 'man' papers in there, not to mention the usual embellishments etc.
So my stamps of choice for this sample were from the Downton Abbey Stamps, A Moment in Time and Time for Tea sets. Check out the detailed but very easy to colour because all the shading is already in there.

I love this tea pot too.........

So I am sure you will be wanting to see some more inspiration ahead of the shows, so check out these facebook pages for some sneak previews.........
