It's beginning to look a lot like Christmas here at our house. The house is all decorated and there's even some snow outside. We got about an inch or so of the white stuff last night/early this morning which gave Jonah and I an extra bonus, a two hour delay. Woohoo. Love working for the school district and still getting delays at this age. You never outgrow the excitement of a delay. Although, now that I'm older, a snow delay also means I need to go out and shovel that crazy long driveway we have. That's okay, I'll take it.
I'm sharing a great little gift that you can make for Christmas this year. It uses one of our clear mount stamp cases (yes, you can purchase them without the stamps). You just cut your favorite designer series paper to slip in between the plastic sleeve and the case. You can change them out with the season. Why, wouldn't it be an eve better gift if you make a set of them so the recipient can change it with each season?
I used three coordinating pieces of designer series paper. Using one paper pack is so easy because they all work so beautifully together and it takes the guess work out of the equation for you. Then you just need to pick a stamp set for a focal point. I used the Basket of wishes set from the Occasions catalog for this one. I thought the strawberries were wonderful to use with the Pop of Pink Designer Series Paper.
Here's the inside of the case and the little tablet too. The cases are a tad shorter than the junior legal pads but that's not a problem. I take the entire pack to Staples and have them cut the bottom of the pad so that it fits inside. It only costs a couple of bucks.
See how the inside of the case is all pretty, too? That's all thanks to Stampin' Up!'s awesome designer series papers being double sided. Now you have a great finished project both inside and out.
