Project Life to the Rescue

For those who are not memory keepers (formerly known as scrapbookers) you may have overlooked the Project Life products in the Stampin’ Up! catalog for card making. The Project Life Accessory Packs are filled with beautiful pieces to add to cards or dress up gifts. Today for the Pals Paper Arts Color Challenge I grabbed my Hello December Project Life Accessory Pack to create this striking and easy Christmas card.

Here is the Color Badge for this week:

PPS279 Color Badge

The reindeer is stunning in glimmer gold paper. This die came from the Hello December Project Life Accessory Pack and I simply adhered a piece of Cherry Cobbler card stock behind the die. Easy Peasy and such a striking image.

The inside of the card is simple and elegant to coordinate with the front. The pine branches are from the Wonderland Stamp Set (available thru January 4th) and were inked using my Stampin’ Write Markers. The sentiment is from a retired set called Ornamental Pines (2014 Holiday Catty). This is one of my favorite sets so retired or not is stays in my collection. I felt the sentiment followed the “Peace” on the front so perfectly.

I hope your are finding peace and joy in your holiday season. I am very behind in all my holiday preparations. I just put the ornaments on the tree last night, a task that is usually completed Thanksgiving weekend. Yet I am trying to be in the moment and enjoy the journey. A big step for me last night was NOT putting every last ornament we own on the tree. I think it is a first!

I did get my demonstrator order of NEW product from the Occasions Catalog that goes live on January 5th. I will get some sneak peeks to you this weekend. If you are not working with another Demonstrator and would like an Occasions Catalog please email me. I will be happy to send you one.
