Christmas Inspiration from Design Team

I'm sharing several projects with you today that are sure to get your creative juices flowing with holiday spirit!  I used the super-adorable papers from Echo Park's Holly Jolly Christmas line on the first set of projects.  Mixed in are some chipboard shapes from Little Yellow Bicycle and trims from My Mind's Eye
First, check out this chevron paper!  I cut it at 11 inches square, rounded the corners, and layered it on brown then white for my background.  I cut the tree shape and title with my Cricut.  Then I just added layers of patterned paper and chipboard.  I couldn't resist cutting off a little pompom and tying it onto the chipboard frame with a bit of twine.  

Next, I've seen a lot of painted or covered clothespins around the blogs and on Pinterest and thought a set of them would be a cute little gift.  I made mine magnets and thought the recipient could use them to hang their holiday greetings or lists up on the fridge.  The EP die cut sheet had some perfectly sized little label/title cuts.  The labels were a bit shorter than the clothespin, so I just covered the tip of each clothespin with red glitter.  They sort of remind me of reindeer noses.  I attached self-adhesive magnet to the back of each clothespin and made a little card to keep them all together.
I couldn't stop using up all the paper, so I decided to make some cute ornaments, too.  
When I ran out of EP Holly Jolly paper, I turned to Little Yellow Bicycle's Winter Twig.  I really loved the white and brown with the bright blues.  I decided to make a garland from the 3 sheets I picked up and the little pack of mini pompoms.  I simply cut some scalloped circles out with my Cricut and then strung them together with the little pompoms using fishing line and a needle.   I tied the ends to a small piece of blue pipe cleaner that I bent and secured into a circle.  That way nothing slid off and the loops on each end make the garland easy to hang.  I did add some glitter glue across each of the circles as an after thought.  The fishing line was a bit slippery and the glitter glue I spread on the circles helped secure the line in place.  I think it will look great on a little mini Christmas tree with some blue or white lights.  Come check out these projects - and the products that inspired them - at Scrapdoodles today!  and Happy Thanksgiving!

Design Team Inspiration

Just a quick post today, since I haven't packed a thing for tomorrow's Scrapdoodles retreat! Somehow I ended up with a polka dot theme to these projects, but I'm loving it. This first page features Lily Bee's Head Over Heels collection and the new Pow! glitter paper from American Crafts. I have waited a long time for a glitter paper that would work with die cut machines, and the Pow! cuts like a dream in the Silhouette and with the Slice. The big flower is from Bo Bunny.

The polka dots on this quick and simple page are courtesy of Bo Bunny...they have so many gorgeous colors that are solid on the back. The tickets were originally a very bright yellow, but a few spritzes of Studio Calico's Mister Huey Sunshine mist remedied that. The font on the glittery pink American Crafts Thickers is my new favorite--so fun and festive. (Star clip by Amy Tangerine for AC, brad by My Minds' Eye, jewels by Doodlebug)

And lastly for today, this mini-album by Amy Tangerine is the project I'll likely be working on at the retreat this weekend. Chevrons are hot right now so I thought I'd take a stab at them for the cover of the little book, again using the Bo Bunny Back to Backs cardstock, as well as some Studio Calico chipboard alphas and October Afternoon Mini Market alpha stickers.

Have a great weekend and I hope to see you at the retreat!
