Holiday Expressions retiring in just 2 weeks.....

We are half way through December, Christmas is almost here and the Holiday Expressions catalogue is retiring on 31st December! And there are still some great specials available in December too!

One of the paper packs I hadn't used much of till recently was the Seasons Mix Ins. These were new with the Holiday Expressions and are designed to coordinate with all the collections in the catalogue.

Recently, I created 2 layouts using almost exclusively Seasons Mix Ins. The first layout was inspired by one you will see in the NEW Seasonal Expressions available January 1st. 

This layout was created using Ballerina, Pebble & White Daisy cardstock, Seasons Mix Ins paper pack (Holiday Expressions 2018), Sugarplum Glitter Paper, White & Gold Twine, C1744 - Dream Catcher stamp set (Hostess Rewards), Versamark ink pad, Gold Embossing powder. It was a fun layout to create and the ladies who attended my workshop loved making it. 

For this layout, I used left over pieces of paper from the Seasons Mix Ins paper pack, along with Hello Pumpkin bulk paper, White Daisy cardstcok, D1808 - You're my Top Pick stamp set, D1797 - Watercolour Impressions stamp set, Black & Glacier Ink Pads.  I think this layout is great for using those narrow pieces of paper in your stash. I used some of the Zip Strips and cut other strips 1/2", 3/4" & 1" high and between 5.5" & 6" wide. 

As I mentioned earlier, there are some great specials still available during December. These include:

1. The Important Things Workshop -   Highlight the unique things that are important to you with The Important Things Everyday Life™ workshop. This workshop shows you how to create eight 6″ × 8″ layouts plus a title page and a closing page for an Everyday Life™ album. The generic theme of this album featuring the bright colours and patterns in the Perfectly Imperfect Picture My Life™ cards make this a versatile workshop y to create for yourself, give as a gift, or even do both! There are additional products (listed) that you need to purchase to complete this project. It would make a great album to highlight some of your Christmas/Holiday events.

2. Days of December WorkshopCapture your holiday memories with the Days of December bundle and workshop! With this workshop, you can create an Everyday Life™ album to document photos and memories for each day during the month of December. Your December highlights will be preserved for years to come.

With the retirement of the Holiday Expressions catalogue at the end of December, means the current Operation Smile Stamp set (D1798) Beautiful Soul will also retire. You still have time to get your stamp set and support this fabulous not for profit charity who offer FREE cleft lip & palate surgeries to children around the world. US$7.00 from the sale of every one of this stamp set goes to Operation Smile to help with these surgeries. Please help this great cause! Or if you don't want the stamp set, you can donate any amount when you place an order on my website!
