We'd also like to thank some of our blogging friends for offering prizes on their blogs during the Blog Hop.
Now we want to inspire you with some easy handcrafted Christmas
specializes in unique and innovative WOOD and CHIPBOARD kits that complement
our paper collections. Have fun decking your halls - and be sure to post your decoration photos on your blogs too so we can all share ideas with each other.
This is Debbie's favorite decoration for this year - a banner that says "MERRY" and is filled with ribbon, tags, cookie cutters, chipboard stars, favorite quotes, and lots of joy. Debbie started with the Christmas Chipboard Banner Kit and altered and added stuff to her heart's content. The chipboard flags can be left natural, painted or covered with paper.
It was easy to make the banner using Adornit's new Christmas Cardstock Stickers, Clear Stickers (see below), and Foam Alphabet letters.
You can decorate your mantle or shelf with ordinary glass jars OR you can kick them up a notch by adding our new easy-to-use Adornit Clear Stickers. The glass jars in the photo are fancied up with a design called Elegance (also available in red, brown and cream). For a more casual look, try the Refined range in aqua, black, brown or tan OR the Charmed range in black, brown, green or tan. You can use these stickers on layouts, cards, albums and home decorating projects. If you look closely at the banner above, you can see that Debbie used clear stickers on the 'M' and 'R' flags.
If you're a scrapper you SHOULD decorate with your scrapbook projects. Be sure to keep a favorite layout or album on display where everyone can enjoy it. This project is our Scallop Wood Album. The tag says, "Our Favorite Christmas Elf." Debbie Raymond made the album and plans to display it where everyone can see what a cute grandson she has. Below is another version of the Scallop Wood Album.
This album was made by Georgana with the theme of "Christmas Faves." It turned out to be a darling album filled with special memories. The album comes with four 8"x8" plastic page protectors so you can make eight layouts to go inside. It can be altered for any season or occasion - great for birthdays, anniversaries and new babies too!
Here is a fun twist on the traditional Christmas chain - made by Tami Anderson. This chain is made with a variety of patterned papers that are folded and embellished with buttons. It's a fun project for the whole family - and looks adorable on a Christmas tree or draped around the front door. These chains a great way to use leftover paper - if your stash has gotten out of control!
