Do you hate to think about anything Christmas until after Thanksgiving?
As a demonstrator we start thinking about it in July! I personally love the holidays so I don’t mind thinking about it for 6 months. I don’t want to skip out on Halloween or Thanksgiving though, because they both are fun holidays that are family oriented!
Demonstrators just got to see the new *Holiday catalog a couple days ago!! I am always excited to see new catalogs. I think because having something new and fresh just makes it easier to fall in love with something and wanting to create with it. The Holiday catalog is amazing! I think it has something for everyone in it this year! From kits to great suites and bundles!
*If you don’t have a demonstrator and would like a holiday catalog sent to you please email me at Hopepapercreations@aol.com
Until I can get my hands on the new products I have been using the Designer Series Paper “Be Merry” from the annual catalog. I will be showing you three projects over the next 3 days that feature the DSP. Now if your someone that doesn’t like seeing Christmas so early then you will like the alternative projects that I created using the same base materials but different DSP to really change up the look and feel.
This first project is a Banner that you can hang on a mantle or wall. I used the Stitched Shapes Framelits and the Alphabet Stamp and Framelits. I stamped the letters with Black Memento ink onto Whisper White card stock then die cut them out. I strung it on the new Whisper White weaved ribbon. I also added a heart from the corrugated shapes.
The alternative Banner I used the “Naturally Eclectic” Designer Series Paper. This banner I didn’t stamp the letters I just die cut them from Whisper White card stock. I strung it up on Pool Party Baker’s Twine. Then hung it on a painted frame I had. Next time I would punch the holes using a smaller hole punch plus do them higher up on the oval so they don’t move as much.
