This is the project included in this month’s newsletter.
I wanted to use the downloads that are being offered through the Digital Scrapbooking Day promotion over at the My Digital Studio web site (check it OUT!). They are FREE, as long as you claim them by November 7. (After that, they will be available as purchase-able items.)
There are four downloads:
- So Typefelt Stamp brush set
- Neutral Delightful Digital tape
- Home for the Holidays emsemble
- Delight in the Day Photobook template
I only used one part, the Home for the Holidays set. And here it is. I do have to admit, this came together rather quickly, so if it looks a bit unpolished, well, there it is! 🙂
Digital stamps: Season of Cheer (included)
Digital ink: Cherry Cobbler
Digital paper: Crumb Cake textured (download)
Digital accessories: Home for the Holidays embellishments (from the FREE downloads)
I started with a blank slate of Crumb Cake textured cardstock. I thought it was a nice neutral without being too holiday-ish one way or the other (plus, I like this color!)
I added the snow as the next part of the background. It’s really an overlay of some sort. Depending upon which section you place on your project, and the size of your project, you’ll get just snow flurries or you’ll get part of the hill. There’s still more hill off my project; I don’t know how far it extends down either (I didn’t check!).
I then added the words in the shape of a tree. Isn’t that pretty? You could even make it bigger and hang it off to the left more. I wanted a more definite tree shape and for most of it to be visible. I had to shrink it down quite a bit; I’m sure it’s sized for a bigger (12×12?) project.
I then sprinkled different trees around. They come in two sizes, and one of the smaller ones has its own snowdrift, which may be hard to see. Stick ’em down where it looks good to you (bigger ones are probably in the front, though, unless you mean for the tree to be REALLY big!).
The final touch was the banner. It actually has points on both sides, but I wanted the asymmetrical look. I added the stamp “happy holidays” on the banner and colored it Cherry Cobbler.
That’s it! See, easy! Now, all you have to do is create the inside. I usually don’t show those, so I didn’t create one, hah! I would probably have more snow, a tree, and probably the house that comes with this set. Isn’t it cute?
I’m so happy to get more colors of the digital tape as part of the download. It’s like masking tape, only digital (of course!) and in Stampin’ Up! colors. Too fun! (especially if someone in your house likes painters tape. Just sayin’…)
