Christmas Cards, Layouts, and Home Decor

We fell in love with the nostalgic colors of the "Snowed In" collection from My Mind's Eye. The 12x12 cardstock patterned papers and coordinating accessory sheet make it so easy to create all kinds of projects, and the prices can't be beat! The accessory sheet is only $1 and all patterned paper is on sale right now for 30% off. Just look at all the ideas we have for you!

Maureen Wilson designed this wall hanging by removing the glass from a picture frame. She distressed the frame with paint, covered wooden letters with patterned paper, and added some ribbon and punch-out shapes. It's fast to make and you will have a beautiful decoration to enjoy for years to come!

With the holiday season approaching, it's time to think about getting those Christmas cards made. Here are some quick ideas you can make using one accessory sheet and five sheets of patterned paper. You will have tons of scraps left over for other projects as well. Add bits of ribbon and some buttons and you will have six beautiful cards in under an hour!

If scrapbooking layouts are more your thing, here is an idea from My Mind's Eye to showcase your holiday photos. Start with four sheets of patterned paper. Create dimension by placing pop dots underneath punch-out shapes. Add your photos and an assortment of buttons and voila... the perfect layout for your (almost) perfect holiday photos!
