11/2 Stampin' Up! Dear Santa 12x12 Pages with Video on Accordion Flowers/Ornaments


As soon as I saw the Holiday Mini stamp set called Dear Santa, I knew I would "need" it for scrapbooking. This set of Christmas pages percolated in my mind for some time before I actually sat down yesterday to create them. I think it was one of the fastest set of pages I've ever made since I had it all figured out from the get go. Usually when I start a set of pages, I have no idea how they will end up! I love the Dear Santa letter created from the Holly Berry Bouquet Specialty
Designer Series Paper . . . it can be used as a cute little journaling spot . . . or if you have a picture of your kids sitting on Santa's lap . . . that would be a good place for it!


These paper rosettes make pretty Christmas ornaments accented with buttons and bows. I used a 1" x 11 3/4" strip of designer series paper from the Holly Berry Specialty pack, scored it every 1/4" and folded it up. I stuck it on a circle die cut from Sticky Sheets. Sticky Sheets are perfect for projects that need extra hold.  In fact, I have a video attached to show you exactly how this is done!


Here's a close up of the die cut stocking. I used the snowflake from the Dear Santa stamp set to decorate it. The holly, candy cane and tiny tree are from the stocking accents die. It's a perfect match for the stocking die . . . if you get one . . . you might as well get the other! lol!
