Happy Holidays

I have been busy working on my holiday cards. I'm inspired to use non-traditional colors this year.

I love the Stampin' Up! patterned paper Christmas Cocoa, paired up with in color Soft Suede. I thought it looked a little vintage, so I added Antique Brass Vintage Brads to the center of each snowflake (Serene Snowflakes). The patterned paper has a shimmer to it. I tried to photograph it so you could see the shimmer. What bonus to have specialty type papers included in this collection. In addition to the shimmery type paper, you also get two sheets of flocked paper. Have you checked out the My Digital Studio software yet? I have seen gorgeous scrapbook pages, cards, and flyers made with this software. People are making their own family picture Christmas cards with this software. It's very cool and priced right!

We hope to make it to the pumpkin farm this weekend. Halloween will be here before you know it. My decorations are out, but no pumpkins yet!

Enjoy your weekend and take time to stamp!

So beautiful, Tiffany. I like how you did the half snowflakes on top and bottom. Very different.
