Good afternoon! I am in LOVE with these fantastic FREE downloads Stampin' Up! has offered to us JUST BECAUSE!!! Thank you, Stampin' Up!
When asked to create something using one or more of the downloads, I knew right away I wanted to create something for Christmas and I wanted to use the ADORABLE snowman from the Home for the Holidays Ensemble.
I decided that I'd take my Christmas pictures (or at least round one) for our Christmas card and incorporate the photos into a banner. I always end up loving more than one picture and never have them on display, so this year will be different! I love the moustache trend that is around right now and decided to use that theme of a "costumer on a stick" and create a Santa, Mrs. Claus, Rudolph, and a sweet little elf.
The banner is actually quite simple: 1. I used a punch and filled it with Whisper White. 2. I matted it with Early Espresso (size 4) and then placed a vintage overlay on top in Crumb Cake. 3. I added a photo box, used some of the new super fun digital tape (LOVING this download!), and then journaled on top of the tape.
I repeated this 12 times over and voila . . . I had a fun, festive banner with the tune “We Wish you a Merry Christmas” journaled on the photos.
I thought the photo banner needed a little extra pop, so I made a mini banner to sit over the larger photo banner with the Christmas greeting. I used the Pennant Punch, filled it with the Downtown Grunge Designer Series Paper, and used the sweet little snowman from the FREE download! I did "flip" the snowman on a few of the tags so the pennants wouldn’t all look identical.
I am really excited to get my printed copy from Stampin' Up!'s print services in the next week, but in the meantime I printed one off at home to share the finished product with you.
Thank you so much for the opportunity of sharing my project with you and thank you Stampin' Up! for these great treats!
