A Sneak Peak at the new Santoro's Gorjuss collection!

Hi all
I am lucky enough to have been sent some of the new Santoro's Gorjuss products by Docrafts.
I've had a play around, scroll down to see what I made!

The range has a lovely cosy wintery feel, with tweed and tartan patterns. 

Here's what I made. 

I wanted to make use of the decoupage papers I'd been sent - I've always wanted to have a go at upcycling - so I covered a plain 8x8" scrapbook:

And in Manchester I picked up a little wooden frame and some glitter. I painted the frame with several coats of silver metallic acrylic paint, added decoupage paper, then finished it off with stripes of glitter and ribbon. I replace the glass with Gorjuss decoupage - a frame doesn't just have to be used for photographs!

And finally, a scrapbook page. I've dithered over this for days. What pictures to use. I am severely lacking in winter photos - most family ones involve people either asleep or washing up...
But I can always rely on the beautiful city of Chester to provide me with winter scrapbook layout salvation.
On this layout I've also use Bare Basics and Denim Blue products - they really complement the Gorjuss range.

Thanks for stopping by!


  1. Beautiful projects Emily, very striking! Love how you have combined Gorjuss with Bare Basics and Denim Blue as well :)

    1. Thanks, Katie. It was fun to come up with different ideas as Gorjuss isn't the range I'd instantly go for. xx
