You will love all the unique images!
One of my favorites is the Christmas star. I think I use it on all of my projects! It is not a traditional five point star which makes it much more interesting and compelling to look at. There are two sizes which make it fun to create the starry night look for a background or to integrate with other stamps in the set.
This paper was BoBunny and had the sweetest wording in a very trendy font style. I thought the paper was more of the sentiment that sets the tone with thoughts like: "I believe in Santa", "tis the season", and "jingle bells".
I love the combo of a warm color (PTI's scarlet jewel cardstock) mixed with a cool wintry green.
HOLIDAY STAMPING TIPS:
When I designed this stamp set, I dimmed the lights and played my favorite piano Christmas music. It was so soothing and inspiring. Whenever I am working on Christmas related projects, I love to use it as an excuse to play a Christmas movie or CD. :) Hot cocoa is always fun, too! Just keep it a safe difference from your projects! Christmas is without question my favorite season of the year, so I have an extensive Christmas movie collection. I am always adding to it each year.
What's YOUR favorite Christmas movie?
I would love to hear! It's hard to decide between... Home Alone, The Grinch, TheMuppet Christmas Carol, Santa Clause, oh gee.... the list just goes on! Just this past week I gave myself a Birthday present and ordered the Jim Henson muppet movie: The Christmas Toy on DVD. Anyone remember that one? We had it recorded on VHS from when it was on TV when I was a kid, but it there wasn't enough tape to finish the movie, so I really don't remember the ending very well. I am looking forward to reliving the and sharing the childhood memories of this movie with my son this year!
Have a fabulous day! Keep dreaming...
