Deck The Halls JAI #387

Happy Friday and welcome :-) It's rather incredible to think that Christmas is only a few weeks away. Trees and decorations are up in all their glory in the stores and its time to get out our own decs and check over lights to see what might be needed for this year whilst the sales are on :-)

So with Christmas so close, the new colour challenge at Just Add Ink is perfect for your Christmas crafting! These traditional colours have so many uses this time of year and our lovely design team have created fabulous creations to inspire you so I hope you can take a moment to pop on over and take a look and hopefully join us.

One of my favourite stamps this Christmas is Carols of Christmas. Here, I've teamed it with the matching sheet music DSP , some gold touches and the full of texture, Boxwood Wreaths. That's the first line of the carol done, I wonder what is next :-)

The card builder framelits were used to create a border around the sentiment - I found doing the top half and then lining up the sides when doing the bottom gave a clean frame. The beautiful metallic snowflakes are added to the background for a little Christmas bling, they are so pretty in real life! And this is a design that once the sentiment frame is made, can be easily mass produced.
