Holiday Helper Project 12: Christmas Bauble


Project 12: Christmas Bauble

Tiny lights twinkling from the branches of the Christmas tree. A soft glow is cast over the carefully hung ornaments - each one a reminder of home. Collected over the years ... store bought and handmade ... there is a story for each one. Memories hung on the tree in the form of ornaments, from the newest to the most treasured, they are so much more than decorations. This elegant Christmas Bauble ornament is a timeless classic and perfect to send your holiday wishes for many more wonderful memories to come.

Holiday Helper Project 11: Chocolate Treats


Project 11: Chocolate Treats

The holidays are ... candy canes from a visit with Santa ... marshmallows in hot cocoa ... Christmas cookies with sprinkles. Some of our most special holiday memories are wrapped up in a small gesture at just the right time, like a little gift of yummies to say "I'm thinking of you". Sweeten someone's holiday with a thoughtful gesture of your own and this adorable chocolate treat holder.

As an alternative, this layout could be used on a note book to keep track of your Christmas shopping list. My favorite journals to work with are the Kraft Grid journals (#135719). They are affordable and just the right size to fit in your purse!

Holiday Helper Project 10: Santa Stache Photo Prop Cards


Project 10: Santa Stache Photo Prop Cards

Rosy cheeks ... twinkling eyes … a belly that shakes like a bowl full of jelly … but what about Santa's mustache? Sure, people talk about the beard, but what about the mustache? Well, since the mustache is all the rage now, Santa's 'stache is finally getting some recognition. Share some of the fun with this "interactive" Santa Stache card … you just might end up with a 'stache of your own!

This fun set is also perfect for dressing up a simple gift bag, creating an extra special gift. Use one of the Tag Topper punches to create a tag as tall as you like. The 2" width of these tags is PERFECT for the mustache to hang off the sides a bit. Just stamp Santa or the Nutcracker onto the tag and color your image. Then die cut and add a mustache with Stampin' Diminsionals. For even more interest, try using Designer Series Paper on your tag. Stamp your image onto scrap paper, cut it out, and add it to the tag. Then add your mustache!

Project 8: Country Card & Tags

Did you wake up Christmas morning and rush out to see what was under the tree? Did you and your family members take turns playing Santa and passing out the gifts to everyone? Did you peek at the gift tags to see who's name was on the "To" line? Tags are a crucial part of gift giving, but just because they're functional, doesn't mean that they can't be cute. You can adorn your packages with some handmade love this season with these festive gift tags and tag cards.

Holiday Helper Project 7: Visions of Santa Cards


Project 7: Visions of Santa Cards

The holidays are full of traditions, including stories and songs that we learned from childhood that just seem to stay with us. Maybe you remember being curled up and cozy while listening to T'was the Night Before Christmas and wondering if you'd hear Santa at your house on Christmas eve. And now you're the one reading to a captive audience of little ones on the nice list. Sometimes it's fun to put a little twist on tradition, so instead of dancing sugar plums, send some dancing Santas this year!

With all of the hustle and bustle of the holidays, it can be easy to lose sight of the true spirit of Christmas.

Holiday Helper Project 3: Bright and Beautiful Card & Tag

Project 3: Bright and Beautiful Card & Tag

With every generation, there is a newness and wonder that comes along with the holiday season. A sharing of the new with the old - tradition alongside trendy. Maybe it's a high-heeled shoe ornament hanging next to an old Santa from your grandmother's Christmas tree or Aunt June's traditional cranberry recipe set out on the dinner table with your sister-in-law's latest creation from Pinterest. Something as simple as changing up the color palatte can add freshness to tradition, as you'll see with this Bright and Beautiful Star Greeting Card and Tag Ornament project.
